He is cool, but did not teach. When you ask him questions, he would either say random things or "look at your notes" or "look at the powerpoint". GG.

he sucks compared to the other DE teachers. ..u'll know what i mean when u get him. u can fool around in his class and everything but when the department finals come, u r screwed. his easiness rating is so low is not bc he is hard but bc he doesnt teach us anything so his tests r hard (altho for other classes his tests r supa easy) i like him as a person but not as a teacher.

Mr.Williams has to be one of the most ridiculous teachers ever. His "teaching" consists of students reading Powerpoints and those Powerpoints aren't even clear. He expects you to know terms that he has never taught before and guess what? The only way you can self study is to look at those Powerpoints. There are no textbooks. I ask him a question and he says look in your notes. So i bring my notes up and say according to my notes, this has more functionality than that. And his reply can't tellyou

He's not a bad person. He can't teach very well, but he's nice. He mostly just shows us power points, but we do group work, and we get to talk to each other.

Good teacher= Literally teaches class, answers questions students have, ends up with students knowing even a bit more than before, and grades fairly and accordingly Mr. Williams=Opposite of all that- Teaching-It's basically self study w/ powerpoints, loses projects and shifts blame to students, doesn't answer questions appropriately, his tests are STRAIGHT OUT word for word-meaning if you understand the concept, you still fail anyway

He was a BAD teacher, he didn't teach. He talked and was never clear, no one ever understood and if we asked questions he wouldn't answer them. However you wont fail, and pretty decent grades.

Don't want to be mean. But he literally gives you power points to takes notes off of. Asking him questions results in him telling you "READ THE POWER POINT". He will NOT answer your question (I doubt he even knows the answers). He is also very strict and is lacking common sense. You must follow every single one of his instructions EXACTLY as he says otherwise he will give you a 0 for whatever he missed with no excuse.
The only tip I have for his class is to be a teachers pet. If he doesn't like

Had him for DDP and he really takes away the meaning of "DDP" whatsoever. Hes very disorganized with his grading policy and whats worse is his lesson structure. Giving a list of 45 vocabulary words of stuff hes never taught at all and telling us to refer to our "notes and powerpoints" for instruction and getting quizzed on it isn't working for anyone. He tells you to redo your project for not very good reasons as he adds on more projects to the list. He definitely picks favorites too so be lucky

He does not teach. He tells us to read a paper and we do tutorials written on a paper during class while he stands in the front and pretends to do work. I learned nothing from him. I learned from a pile of papers. He grades work badly. Gives everyone a C and we dont even know why. Gave everyone 75 for class participation, how are we suppose to participate when he never asks questions, theres absolutley nothing to volunteer for. He's not a teacher. He also plays favorites and picks on certain kid

he's biased and his tests are hard and have nothing to do wth anything. the robotics class has nothing to do with robots, and every time i set foot in his classroom, i regret signing up for that class. he's not helpful at all, so if he doesn't like you, consider yourself on the borderline or failing.

When I signed up for robotics, I expected the class to revolve more around, um, robotics. Silly me. There are not enough things wrong with this guy's class. I can't believe this passes off as a class. Doesn't anybody inspect what he's supposed to be teaching? I have learned nothing about robotics this term. The only thing he taught us about robots was the definition of robot. And even that was given on a photo copy. This guy sure loves giving us photocopies so that we either keep our selves busy or fail.
