  • 25. “At first, it was very difficult to adjust to Dr. Bates’ teaching style after having a <<>> prof that taught through taking notes together. ! After a few weeks, however, I came to understood that this approach was extremely effective. In contrast to my other conventional stern and dull lectures, physics class was a very lively, interactive and inspiring environment; a class that I looked most forward to. ! Dr. Bates lead an interactive environment in which students were stimulated to think amongst themselves and learn from each other.”
