Comment:
Professor Scholz has very little ability to convey the material in an effective way. His slides are just paragraphs with maybe one example per chapter in the course. Professor Scholz also sends countless unprofessional emails to his students with no regard for them at all. If a student asks for help in a lecture, he just says its in the slides.

Comment:
Unprofessional emails and does not seem to care about student mental health. Online exam breaks down for 10 minutes and students who were not able to submit in time (due to the site breakdown mind you) will fail the course. Scholz then proceeds to send extremely unprofessional emails to all students in the class.

Comment:
Scholz is utterly unhelpful and incredibly rude. He teaches in a way that is unintuitive and is very passive aggressive towards students, reminding us how stupid he thinks we are. His slides are pathetic and he has zero computer literacy, and then complains about his students when online things don't get done properly, using his faulty format.

Comment:
He doesn't seem to understand that people can have different ways of understanding concepts than himself, often having 5+ min arguments with students who dont understand something, while he just keeps saying that the answer is obvious from the slides. He doesn't care about the students at all, and I cannot believe that he is still a professor here.

I can't believe that Prof. Scholz has such a low rating. If you show up and pay attention, you'll realize that he's an exceptional prof. and physicist. Infinite Kindness. Slides are useful for reference too!

Comment:
He doesn't help students when they need him. His lectures missed a lot of things in the curriculum. Scholz would not give you any practice exams, remove access to lecture and Mastering Physics in the last days and his test is somewhat unfair and irrelevant to what we learnt in class.

Scholz gets a lot of flak but I thought he was a nice, jolly guy who really did help out in terms of preparing you for exams. His lecture notes are a bit iffy but since you have the textbook/webassign, you should be fine...

Comment:
Deliberately makes his midterm hard to maintain a low class average with the intention of curving the final... and then doesn't curve the final. Rude when you try and speak to him outside of class. Frankly one of the most out of touch profs I have encountered.

His lectures were not clear sometimes, and nor were the due dates for assignments. It made the class very confusing as he was not properly organized, which leaves you scrambling to figure out what he is talking about.

Once you get used to him he is a pretty good prof. His lectures can be quite funny. Before you get used to his style it's impossible to understand anything that's going on.

Great prof :D He's an easy marker and is super helpful if you go to him in his office hours. literally walks students through all the examples that is gonna appear in midterm and final. yes the course is never easy but if you study every questions on his slide you'll have no problem getting a decent mark. I just don't get all those whining.

He is a really nice person since he is always there to help you. He gives bonus marks in the exam since he does consider for students.

Comment:
He is horrible. Talks to himself in class and doesnt clarify his steps. When approached for help, he gets mad. Cant remember when he gives his appointment, and then blames you for missing the appointment when he was waiting on the wrong day.
