Mechanical Behavior of Materials
Winter 2017 - Its actually hard to write this review because of how frustrating this class was. Here are a list of weaknesses that Professor Marian needs to fix. He made the class extremely frustrating for me and many classmates and the experience was embarrassing for the undergraduate education in the material science department. - Worst lecture slides. Did not relate lecture slides to homework AT ALL! Always did a top level review of subjects in class and did not explain quantitative equations. NO EXAMPLE PROBLEMS in an application based class... - Very clearly did not care about students. Never established office hours. Had an attitude like he had something more important to do. Did not fix obvious mistakes in lecture slides. -Homework was a joke. -Midterm was a joke. Midterm point distribution was out of whack. Small mistakes meant half the problem was wrong. - I could go on and on, but to sum up - Marian obviously cared little about his class, his lectures only ever skim the surface and do not connect with his homework or tests, and overall he just made me disinterested in the subject matter.
