Quarter Taken: N/A Submitted March 31, 2002 Grade Received: N/A

Professor Brown is an awesome teacher for those students who don't mind thinking on a test. Granted, it's not plug and chug nor do you get cheat sheets but it's kept on such a simple level and he tells you what will be on the test before hand. The reason not everyone gets an A is because the tests he makes actually assess whether or not you can apply the material to situations that aren't exactly like HW problems. Overall, I think most people will retain what is learned in his class longer than material learned in other courses due to the fundamental but thorough presentation. Definitely recommend him to those students who want to do minimal work (i.e. no busy work) and can think well (recall + algebraic manipulation) on exams. If you don't like that style look for someone else.
Oh, he's also a really nice guy and cares about learning. Just don't ask him to do an example with numbers because he doesn't believe plug and chug teaches anything that an understanding of the material can't provide.

Professor Brown is a really nice guy and he is extremely concerned with the students learing. The problem with him is that he thinks he is teaching an engineering or calculus class. Everything is proofs, derivatives, etc... Unlike all other Physics 6 series teachers, in his class, we are not allowed any cheat sheets or formulas, everthing must be memorized or derived. If you can take another teacher, I would highly recommend it!!!
