Evans, Harold
[PHYS C1001] Physics for Poets I and [PHYS C1601] Physics I: Mechanics and Relativity

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Prof. Evans is nice and very clear. He is open to listening to questions during lecture and he cares a lot about students taking an interest in him as a professor which makes him pretty accessible. His lectures are not that exciting and attendance reflected that. Some lectures are better than others. In the poets class he often tried to have demonstrations in class and would end most lectures with a good story or anticdote.

Workload:

1601-1 problem set every two weeks which were not that bad and 2 midterms and a final which if you can do the problem sets were not that bad 1002-no problem sets or required reading. If you read Evans' study guides and solutions to optional problem sets then an A is pretty easy.
