Super nice guy. The seminar has minimal work and is mostly just about showing up to class. Definitely take for 3 credits not 1, because the workload is basically the same either way.

Comment:
Dr. Brown's class was a simple way for even those not going into physics to expand upon their physics knowledge and learn about some very interesting topics that are useful even in other classes, however there is paperwork to deal with as he has checkpoints during every lecture, homework after every lecture and after week 3 a weekly group project.

Dr. Brown is an amazing physics professor. He's very passionate about what he does and loves teaching physics. His lectures can lose people at times but he gives tons of materials that will help you understand. Daily lecture checkpoints, homework, and exam reviews are all very useful. The chaos theory part of the class is very interesting as well.

123 is great if you've already taken a physics class and willing to spend time on some extra content. His lectures are sometimes a bit difficult to follow, but homework, review, and printed lecture notes definitely help. Tests can be difficult but are graded generously. He is super passionate and tries to know all students by name. Good class.

Professor Brown was an amazing professor to have for intro physics. His lectures were usually clear and fun and the daily homework assignments definitely helped with understanding. Before exams he hosts his own review session the evening before, almost all other professors used TA.

Brown really cares for his students and gets excited about the course content. He is one of the most dedicated professors because he will treat give everyone special attention if needed and he watches the progress of each student even though the class is rather large. The tests and homework are fair, and Brown really prepares you for exams.

This was my first in major class. At the time I found it hard but looking back this was my easiest physics class. Brown was energetic, interesting and really sweet. He genuinely loves all his students and wants them to succeed. He lets you turn in late work with no penalty and reschedule exams that are on the same day as other class's exams.

His lectures are great! At the end of every class he had a demo to see the concepts we just learned in real life. The only problem is that his voice sometimes was pretty low. He prints all the lecture notes and small classwork activities and hands them out at the beginning of class so if you miss a class, makes sure you get them from him.

Dr. Brown is by far the best professor I've had at Case. He has very clear expectations and does everything he can do help his students achieve that. He's very generous with partial credit and his tests won't surprise you in anyway. He really cares about his students and will send out video hints for homework and hold review sessions before exams.

One of the best professors I've had. Makes the class very interesting. Home work is easy and tests aren't impossible. Love the demos in class and he is always there to help you. Take a class with him if possible.

Robert Brown is a god amongst men. I'm a CS major, and rwb single-handedly convinced me to also pursue a physics minor. While the exams and homeworks are by no means easy, his class is worth it. He really cares about students - he even holds Saturday exam reviews in person, which few Case professors would do. His lectures are works of art.

Dr. Robert Brown is a wonderful professor and a lovely person. He goes out of his way to connect with students and he is genuinely interested in their successes. Doc Brown gives engaging lectures and his printed notes (no textbook!) are great. If you can take a class with him, you should! He is an asset to CWRU.

Dr. Brown was my favorite professor this past semester. He's very easy to talk to and very considerate with grades. He references Big Bang Theory pretty often and made the lectures very interesting. He also printed out lecture notes for every class, so you did not have to take them.

Comment:
He is one of the hardest and best teachers I have ever had. His emails are personable and helpful, and will do anything to help pass knowledge from his expansive brain to his kids. I would take his class over and over if I could. I'll probably stop in a couple times next year. His tests and homework are very difficult; you're going to have to work.

Professor Brown is a wonderful man with a heart of gold. Although his lectures can seem a bit scattered and rushed (he rarely fully finishes), I felt as though I had mastered the concepts at the end of the semester. He lectured from a typed handout he gives you each class and the text was optional. Always willing to help.

Comment:
I am not a physics student. never had physics in high school and did not know what to expect since I heard horror stories about it. Professor Brown is probably the best physics teacher you will have at Case. Class was lectured by Diessler, a great guy also. He will work with you if you are stuggling, a rare occurence with Case professors. Take Him!
