Comment: A professor who knows his material, although he was not very enthusiastic which is a pain for an 8 a.m. lecture, but for the times I did pay attention, he was very thorough and precise. Assignments i took off because MasteringPhysics sucks. His exams are fair and equitable though (generous curve and actually tests you on the material w/ plenty of chance for partial credit)

Comment: A very hard lecturer to pay attention to for an entire lecture and of course masteringphysics is a an annoyance for homework. He does pretty well at explaining and answering questions with reasonable exams

Comment: Pretty boring lecturer, but easy to talk to during office hours. Mastering physics is tricky, but the GSIs generally help you with it during discussion. Study challenge problems for the midterms because they are similar.

Comment: Masteringphysics is pretty poor, as always. McKee was very enthusiastic during lecture, answered questions well, was always organized and clear in his notes, and provided helpful review sheets before exams. The exams often featured a few unclear questions, which, although they usually turned out to be some of the easier questions on the test, were difficult to interpret correctly.

Comment: Professor McKee deserves a lot more credit than his rating shows. He is always extremely organized with his lectures and willing to answer any questions that are brought up. I personally thought it was worth waking up every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for his 8am lectures. Homework was Mastering Physics each week, which is nicer than in 7A because you are no longer penalized for incorrect answers. Exams were okay, pretty straightforward with maybe a question or two that can throw you off.

Comment: He's definitely not the most upbeat professor, but he does take the time to go through derivations of equations, which can be good or bad. He hardly has examples though and I ended up not going to alot of the lectures. I learned the most from my GSI during section.

Comment: A very dull lecturer, yet a very informative one. It's hard to find the enthusiasm behind his lectures. However, if students listen into his lectures, they will learn a lot. Exams are fair, but the homework uses the dreaded MasteringPhysics Software...

Comment: Quite a decent professor. Knows his physics and tries to go over concepts relatively clearly. Not spectacular in any way, but will get the job done and teach you what you should learn in the course. Exams are completely reasonable and he has gotten more consistent with exams teaching this course the second time around.

Comment: Good lecturer who knows his stuff. But he speaks too softly most of the time. He is a bit monotone, but other than that, he's an interesting lecturer.

Comment: An okay professor. He has a bit of humor, but often teaches way too much theory, even for physics. Physics majors might like it (if you're into theory), but otherwise, meh. The exams were okay, I think he's still getting the hang of it, but they were fairly tough. He clearly loves physics though.

Comment: McKee was a really nice guy who tried to answer every student's questions as politely as possible. Unfortunately he lectures in a complete monotone. This was his first time teaching the class, so exams were inconsistent. Midterm 1 was ridiculously easy, midterm 2 was pretty hard, and the final was reasonable. MasteringPhysics is always a pain. The lab is pretty pointless.
