Fluids are hard, but Eldredge does an excellent job. There were 3 midterms, lowest one got dropped. The first test was super easy, the next two were much more difficult, but they were graded leniently. The final was cake. Eldredge is very helpful if you go to OH or email him. He actually made an effort to teach us despite the circumstances. I would absolutely take him for another class again. I highly doubt you can do better than Eldredge.

Lectures: does a good job going over the key concepts and making connections between different ideas; although you should still prepare to read or at least browse the textbook.

Discussions: fairly good summary of the conceptual materials and good practice problems

Office hours: very friendly and willing to help

Homework: can take a while but really good practice and does a good job preparing for the exams

Exams: can range in difficulty level, but overall really fair as he really wants the students to be successful

Overall: really good professor who also can take a bit of fun comments. He cares about student learning and is very supportive. Definitely recommend

Professor Eldredge did an excellent job breaking down confusing material and making it understandable for his students. He explains concepts very thoroughly. I found the class to be of reasonable difficulty, which, in my opinion, shows how great he is at teaching since fluids is known to be challenging. I was probably the only CS major to take this class, and I don't regret taking it. Extra credit problems are offered on some homework assignments and each one adds .5% to your overall grade. The midterm and final are weighted evenly (30%) and the final is not cumulative, which is pretty nice.

Excellent professor. His lectures are quite clear and straightforward, and he cares about the students in the class. While the homework and exam may be challenging, it frankly does not detract from the course, and I always felt like I learned something worthwhile and important. Highly recommend.

Fantastic professor. Eldredge knows what he is talking about and he makes his lectures very straightforward. He is a very understanding teacher and wants to make sure that everyone understands what is going on. Office hours are great if you have any minor questions. If you ask about homework he will discuss how to approach the problem but never directly tell you how to solve the problem which I think is good for purposes of making sure that you yourself know the material. He also encourages to go to office hours to discuss how you personally did on the midterm which I think is very generous of him considering the number of students in the class. Ended up with an A in the class. Take him for 103, I highly encourage it.
