Comment:
Was often completely incorrect in his lectures about basic physics, and would proceed to get whiny when students would not pay attention. If you want the respect of your students, you should actually have an understanding of the material you are teaching.

Comment:
In smaller classes like this one, Whittaker isn't all that bad. His instructions are unclear sometimes, but he's certainly knowledgeable. Since this class is exclusively for physics majors, I feel that maybe he teaches more fluidly among his own kind.

Comment:
When I wasn't sure if I could pass the class and asked what he thought I should do, he literally told me that he can't predict the future, and to figure it out myself. I've never been more furious for something school related in my life. Completely unhelpful; he didn't even try

Whittaker's a great guy! He's improved a lot over the years, apparently, because I think he's a good teacher.

I learned know little physics and passed this class. It was very easy. Just show up for clickers, do ok on quizzes and get 100 percent of mastering physics and the class is a breeze.

Comment:
He does nothing. The only day you need to go in is a clicker day. Then, he assigns master physics. If you do all you master physics then you pass and you don't need to take the final. It's a joke class and a joke teacher.

Comment:
Ok so he's a little lame with all of his lectures and sometimes they can get kind of boring but give the guy a break. He just really enjoys Physics. He is nice and very clear if you pay attention. Plus the class is very easy and most people get exempted from the final.

Comment:
PEP 111. Mechanics. Typical Stevens professor with a superiority complex. Class is a bit of a joke though. Only need to show up on "Clicker" days and only need to show up to about half of them to get full credit. Same goes for recitations. Also, he has a habit of changing the grading system or not giving you a rubric until the last week of class.

Comment:
Whittaker is the man. He is not the best teacher I have had, but he makes up for it in his personality and willingness to help. His demonstrations, while seemingly pointless at the time, have actually helped me get through the course. I so have an old man crush on him.

Honestly, terrible. Not informative, not helpful, very dry. I asked him a question on some homework i had worked ahead on, his reply was "why did you work ahead? are you cheating?"

Homework and quizzes in this class are super easy. All of the subject material can be learned without his help, but his lectures are always informative. He's also a really nice guy, and funny...sometimes.

Maybe a little bit dry at points, but a very fair and thorough guy. The class is pretty easy as far as homework and quizzes go. His lectures seem a bit redundant sometimes.
