|Test and homework were relevant and reasonable yet challenging. Feel i have a good understanding on the basics of statics. Give the teacher and the class an A!|
|Having the homework given to us after our exam, as we did in Exam 1, was very detrimental to my
grade because I did not understand the concept fully. I reviewed the concepts that were covered in
class, and did similar problems, but the problems presented on the exam were more in depth than I
think we covered in class. I think it is most beneficial to have the homework graded and returned
to us so that we may review our mistakes and fully grasp the concepts (and our mistakes) better.
As for the homework assignments, I believe it would be best if we were given multiple examples
(ones that would not take very long to complete) as a warm up to brush up on the concept, then a
few more difficult ones to expose certain concepts in more detail. I realize this could be done on
our own, and I have tried my best to employ this strategy, but a little direction in what types of
problems are a welcome addition to my study habits. These "warm up" questions do not even need
to be graded, but rather just given as information to the student. Sometimes the text book can
focus on concepts or situations that have nothing to do with what the teacher intends to cover, and
as a student learning the concept, it can be difficult to determine the best areas/concepts to
explore in depth.
Overall, I did like the setup of the class, and the manner in which things were taught. Time
permitting, examples done in class were by far the most meaningful part of the lecture.|
|Great instructor, Knows how to communicate with his students, good pace he doesn't overwhelm you with too many details. Present the problem clearly and shows the best solution and is consistent with the solution process throughout the semester.|
|I really like his teaching style keep it up.
He goes over many problems during class and it would be really great if he had suggested problems from the book.|
|He is a very good professor, with great knowledge of concepts and theory. He is able to present the
material in a way that makes it very easy for new students to understand the basic concepts. He
always preaches that these skills are/will be the building blocks for higher level ENG courses.
The only gripe I have is that the homework is a little too easy compared to exams. Make no mistake
the exams themselves are not entirely difficult, however they do require a little bit more thinking
than the homework assignments themselves.
Overall great professor and a great class.|
|Wonderful teacher. He really takes the time out of his schedule (nights/weekends) to respond back to emails and help students. He is always offering additional help and will take out extra time for students to succeed. He explains examples that are relevant to the book's problems as well as tests. He starts from the basics to make sure each student is on the same page. I dont necessarily need this class to graduate but am learning so much from him. I hope to take him for 271.|
|He is really a great professor, he cares for his students and how he designed his class is solely for the importance of learning the material. He knows that it is hard to completely comprehend the materials in statics and with his teachings, I have learned a lot. I would definitely take his other classes in the future.|
|I really enjoyed the structure of his class. His grading was fair and he
worked out plenty of problems/examples together with the students during
class. His tests were still difficult but very fair and allowed us to have
a more relaxing environment which helped us focus on truly understanding
the concepts and analyzing the problems rather than simply "trying to get a
grade." His homework was challenging and way harder than the tests but I
oddly felt that it truly prepared me better and put me in the right mindset
when taking the tests. It ironically helped reduce my testing anxiety and
made me feel more confident in class. Unlike some teachers, they make their
test far harder and we leave the class feeling defeated and not motivated
to excel further in class. Namekar's class structure encouraged me to want
to succeed and try harder with each new assignment and test given. This
must be one of the only few good reviews I have EVER given a teacher.
|Dr. Shailesh Namekar is a good teacher. He is very helpful to his students. He makes sure
that everyone understands the class material. He sometimes mispronounce some english
words during lecture but it is ok. It is understandable. I hope that he will teach higher level CEE courses so that I can take his class again.|
|The Class structure consisted of many examples and i liked that. The homework
challenge me beyond the lecture and forced me to become comfortable with the
material in the most basic form in order to understand the applications of
the course concepts|
|He is a great instructor! He really appreciates all questions (even if they are long overdue). He
knows the subjects he teaches very well. He is excellent at adaptive teaching, meaning that
he can answer any question in a way that the asker will understand.|
|Taught the material effectively. Homework was useful and relevant to the tests. Tests were
straightforward which is good.|
|Honestly, he is a really caring professor. He takes his time to listen to
you. The content was high, and the class itself is hard, but he is awesome.
I really, really, really liked his office hours this semester and it helped
me grasp the content more.
Homework is definitely hard, but he doesn't overwhelm you with it. In fact,
he encourages you to seek help and genuinely listen to you.
I would recommend him as a professor for CEE 270.|
