Mastering Physics sign now

This petition is for those who are fed up with Dr. Whittaker's laziness. The man does little or no teaching during the two lectures each week, and seems to have spent literally no time in preparation before the class. He leaves the teaching to be done by a website, http://www.masteringphysics.com , which offers little to no help. When it is possible for a student, and an institute of learning such as we are attending, to spend over thirty minutes on detailed algebra describing a concept he already fully understands, there is a problem. But then, when the only feedback given on that thirty minutes of hard work is, "Sorry; your answer is wrong! You have 5 more attempts to get the right answer," it is easy to become mightily frustrated, especially when, after another thirty minutes of algebra, you get the same answer with a '+' changed to a '-'.

Dr. Whittaker, your experiment with Mastering Physics is more of a failure than you could possibly have imagined. Please remove this evil service from your curriculum and teach in a way that helps the learning process. Explain concepts during the lectures instead of reviewing the near-impossible, overly complicated, and quite useless Mastering Physics problems. The key to learning is understanding, and understanding is not possible with the amount of frustration generated by Mastering Physics.
