Glenn is decent at teaching the material and fairly easy overall. He does a nice job of teaching Matlab if you've never seen it before, and you need it to do some of the homework and the project he assigns. Workload is fairly light. Sometimes he gets confused during his own examples, and he likes to go off on weird tangents like talking about advanced gearing systems nobody has heard of or seen before, but he does a pretty good job of pounding the material in your head. He grades easy and the tests are not that hard.

Greg Glenn is the biggest tool god's green earth has ever given us. What have we ever done to deserve Greg Glenn?

The deal with this guy was that he got some lecture notes from another teacher. he hadn't looked at them and just showed up to class. first of all he was breezing through the power points. he went through 4 weeks worth of lecture by the end of first week and then he looked like a baby who just pooped his pants. none of us knew what the hell he was talking about and if anyone had a question he told them to go to his office (his office hours being once a week at late hours in some god forsaken place). on top of this, he couldn't even do his own examples. he was trying to show us how to find instant centers and he couldn't even do it; they weren't even that hard.
he gave us a project and 10 days to do and basically everyone turned in his example and got 100%.
easy midterm and final I think averaged 80. he gave 70% of everyone a B. you had to get >95 to get an A (that's how the curve worked out)

other than that I have no idea who thought it was a good idea to let Greg Glenn teach. i wouldn't even want him to be my TA let alone teach. plus he looks like a retard anyway. when's the last time you had a teacher in skater shorts and flip flops.

I love you Greg Glenn.
