Comment:
Ernie is amazing at conveying processes and concepts that people often find difficult to comprehend. If high-school physics teachers were as great as him less people would be frightened by Physics. If Ernie is teaching physics 1000 and you are supposed to be taking 1080, take 1000, you won't regret it.

After all my years at Guelph, Ernie still stands out as one of the best profs I've had. Very dedicated, interesting and kind to his students- a great speaker, too. If only more profs were like this...

Awesome prof. We had him come back to substitute for 1010, and he recieved applause. Demos are awesome and his jokes are great. Makes stuff like relativity manageable. Made 50 minute lectures feel like 20. Ernie is the man.

Easily my favourite professor. He makes first year physics very understandable and fun. His demonstrations are informative and often quite hilarious, and he's always extremely helpful.

Ernie rocked my socks in first year baby physics. He was so funny but made explaining important concepts (that might have been otherwise boring) interesting and understandable! Take a class with him and you'll be sure it enjoy it!
