Tufts University: Hugh Gallagher - Physics - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Professor Gallagher is an ok teacher. It doesn't help that I don't really like Physics E&M in the first place. The beginning was a little frustrating, when he'd only do derivations on the board. But he always has PowerPoint slides for every lecture, and I'm just starting to realize how useful they are. They're clear and summarize the book well. All in all, he's a good teacher, especially when considering some of the other teachers in the physics department.
Problem set every week, takes a few hours. Sometimes the problems are really hard so I'd recommend going to recitation. Or having a really smart friend.
Just a word of warning - the averages for tests are not that high. It was a 79 for the 1st midterm and a 68 for the 2nd.
