Mr. Chapman is an awesome teacher. I know there are a lot of comments about him not teaching, but think about it. It would ruin the point of engineering if he taught you. I had him for Principles of Engineering as well as adv. Robotics. and the classes both require the students to think inventively. Mr. Chapman wants us to learn by ourselves. It's difficult, but that's what makes robotics fun!

He's fun, but doesn't teach very much. He tells you what to do, and you do the rest. He doesn't help much.

Depending on what class you have with him, he will teach you sometimes, and other times not at all. Often he would make you read a book online and then answer questions that he found online also. You are able to play every single day during class and he wouldn't care as long as you have finished your work. Not only that, but you can finish your work a week before the semester is even over.

Good teacher. Beware of his mood swings, but otherwise he's a good teacher. Oh btw he doesn't "teach". He loves to laugh at his own lame jokes and everyone starts laughing at him not with him.

Not too hard of a class. Sometimes strict, but always helpful. Lame jokes, I'll admit, but overall good teacher. No game in class, though :) Don't fudge around and you'll be fine.
