Comment: He is an interesting Professor-- philosophical, calm, helpful, understanding. I feel like he could be a monk. He makes sure to explain the content well and keep the pase moderate. Exams could sometimes be challenging if you don't fully understand the concepts rather than just memorize the equations.

Comment: Hwang is a great physics professor. If you go to class, do your assignments, and participate in discussion, you should do great in this class. Mastering physics, however, is not a good tool for studying for midterms or finals. The homework problems are much simpler than exam problems.

Comment: A good teacher overall (I don't care what everybody else says, I still liked Speliotopoulos better). He teaches off of Power Point, which drastically slows down the pace of lecture and the exam questions could be strange at times (the first exam had an essay type question [seriously], and the second had questions that he gave us the formulas for, and we just had to plug in numbers). Besides these minor complaints, however, overall a decent, friendly teacher.

Comment: It seems like a lot of people rave about Huang, but I really don't see all the hype. He's a certainly a clear lecturer, but I found his lectures to be so focused on fundamental derivations that they proved less than helpful when it came to application of concepts [homework, exams]. My GSI wasn't great either, so that might have contributed to my negative impression of this course overall.

Comment: Great professor! I would say that he's a better Thermodynamics teacher than an E&M teacher. I always left lecture with a deeper understanding of the material while we covered Thermodynamics. I can't say the same for E&M, though I can tell he does try. If you're struggling to understand something, he's willing to take any questions thrown at him, which is really nice. Exams are fair; they definitely check to see if you have understood the material. I would highly recommend taking a class with him!

Comment: Professor Huang is the reason I got out of bed every day for an 8am lecture! He is so passionate about teaching, and has great demos and lectures that clearly convey the information needed for the exam. He encourages students to come after lecture to play with the demos, loves answering questions after class, and really likes going outside of the scope of the course to talk about a neat phenomenon or theory. I had already taken physics AP C so this class was 100% review, but I still felt like I learned a lot from this course. Exams were really hard, but fair. If you can get Huang as a lecturer, get him! On a side note: Mastering Physics is literally the worst thing on this planet, worse possibly than the College Board. It forces you to copy from the solutions manual and ruined my Friday every week. However, it's not like Huang wants to use it...

Comment: Huang was a pretty thorough lecturer from what I could tell from the first two months. I stopped going because the pacing of the class was a bit slow - my GSI was consistently ahead of the class and it didn't make sense to double up on the same material. MasteringPhysics was pretty simple - the problems were pretty straight forward and at reasonably solvable (if you were having trouble, you could colloborate on/google a lot of the problems). The exams were pretty fair - it was consistent with what was taught in lecture/section - he even sometimes repeats questions from previous midterms finals.

Comment: Huang has a unique teaching style (powerpoints) that works very well. By putting equations and figures on the slides, he saves valuable time and reduces errors he could potentially make on the board. Lecture was a little heavy on theory and derivations. The first midterm and final were fair, but the 2nd midterm was very difficult. Mastering physics sucked because we were docked for wrong responses, but you'll get that for most physics classes. Take 7B with him if he's teaching.

Comment: For most of the semester, lecture was behind both lab and the homework, so assignments were hard to complete. His exams were fair, but I felt they neglected to test the most important concepts. He is a good lecturer, though he teaches off PowerPoint, but he doesn't do example problems in class, so it's hard to know what to expect from his exams.

Comment: Great professor. Class was very poorly organized. Exam questions were either way too easy or required a "special trick." Discussions were rarely in sync with lecture and homework was frequently due too early (i.e. he finished lecturing on it at 9am, Homework due at 5pm). Mastering Physics is terrible software. Huang is cool though.

Comment: Professor Huang is one of the best professors/teachers I've come across. He's really enthusiastic about the topic, and he teaches and explains concepts well. He covers the material quite thoroughly, and during lectures he stops to take questions and such. The homework load is reasonable, as are exams. The demos are quite interesting too. He cares about his students (what really surprised me was that he asked for students' names if they go up and ask questions after class), and overall a really great professor.

Comment: Overall, a really great class and awesome professor. Workload was reasonable, 8-10 Masteringphysics problems a week. One problem on each of the tests (two midterms and final) were taken directly from the homework, so definitely take the time to do it thoroughly and understand the math/concepts. The tests were very reasonable though slightly tricky. If I remember correctly, the averages for the three tests were 78, 60, and 58, with standard deviations of roughly 15. The average is set to a B, with one standard deviation above being a certain A. Section/lab is not mandatory, but definitely useful. It leads lecture during thermodynamics then lags during electricity and magnetism. Teachingwise, Huang does a great job of maintaining a pace that everybody can follow by asking people if they understand and whatnot. As a testament to how useful his teaching was, the room was generally packed and attendance was generally >80%. I feel he emphasizes a conceptual understanding for the topics more so than how to mathematically attack problems (because that's what section is for). He does a great job connecting the topics to the "real world" and also, in the last lecture, expanding on everything covered in the entire course.

His demos are fun, and he is one of those professors willing to re-explain things. Exams, 1 or 2 problems of ~5 on test, from homework. Sections were rushed, as is usual, but do-able.

Comment: Probably the best professor I've had so far. He is quite a good lecturer and manages to insert humor at the right moments so class is never boring. Obviously cares a lot about students' understanding, and will frequently check to see how the class is doing with the concepts. Exams are fairly challenging though at least one of the problems is predictable (straight from HW). Huang knows this stuff like the back of his hand, and he's happy to venture outside the curriculum if you're curious. The only downside is the powerpoint format of this course, which can be very fast-paced.

Comment: Assignments - the usual mastering physics. If you took 8A or 7A, you know the deal. Can be a headache, but is still useful for test preparation. Huang gave interesting, but sometimes monotonous lectures. If you read the book before going to lecture, they would make sense. On bad days, could be dull and dreary as a foggy June morning because he presents using powerpoint. On good days, powerpoint means cool videos (Helium superconductivity, for example, or Tom Hanks making fire in Cast Away). In terms of tests, Huang makes great tests: straight forward questions. Sometimes some weirdo questions, but for the most part you can study the homework (*SUGGESTED PROBLEMS APPEAR ON THE MIDTERMS*) and his past exams and expect to understand the problems on the test. In office hours, Huang lets you work stuff out on the board. Helpful, time-consuming.
