The way physics is taught at west makes the teacher very redundant - it dosent matter if he is a good teacher or not, he isnt going to teach the class. Other students will. Whiteboarding is a sin.

if you like physics, he's a great teacher. if you don't like physics and show it, he will respond accordingly. very good dry sense of humor. not anywhere as hard as college physics

he isn't a great teacher, he assumes too much is already learned, or that we'll just catch on.

Brilliant man, but not for everyone. Hilarious if you understand his sense of humor. Very helpful if you make a sincere effort.

Funny guy, knows his stuff well. Get on his good side early on and he will be very willing to help you. Great teacher if you make an effort and like physics.

He's a good teacher...*when* he teaches. I suggest coming in and asking for help after class. He's extremely helpful if you make an effort.

Mr. Lyman is very picky about some small, trivial issues, but things are usually OK. Sometimes his lack of explanation can be confusing, but I learned a lot.

Mr. Lyman is condescending and unclear. He is set in his ways and has difficulty admitting when he is wrong. His grading system is arbitrary and subjective.
