Fun teacher. Have known since I was a Freshman throught the robotics program. He makes the robotics somuch fun. Classwork is hard, he does a good job of explaining and the demos are fun, Flametube!
Hardest class I've particapated in thus far...but lots of fun mixed in with the pain. He explains things well initially but sucks at one on one help. Be sure b4 you take Physics A
I think I gave Swartley a hard time in class and I didn't always appreciate the class while I was there, but I learned a lot. My college physics class is SO easy because of him. Don't get caught playing calculator games though! :-P
Everything is explained very deliberately and clearly. The tests, though, tend to be difficult.
I liked him quite a bit on a personal level... kind of hard teacher..
very willing to help students who ask for extra attention. a fun personality behind the physics teacher demeanor
Never understand anything he "explains" in class, expects all students to be physics geniuses who don't need things explained to them
class had tendencys to get boring, and some labs were pointless, but he knows his stuff, and makes class fun most of the time.
