There was a large amount of material to cover, but with work it was possible
Visuals were very helpful to understanding! Enthusiastic about the topic;
Material was good.
Overall interesting material and class!
I really enjoyed this class and would highly recommend it to others
Course was great; learned a lot; well connected and organized
Interesting material, enthusiasm good
Overall this was a great course. I really enjoyed the emphasis on lecture
instead of the textbook
The instructor was very good. He knew what he was talking about and let
us know when he didn't have an answer to our questions. But then found out
and got back to us with that information. He was quite enthusiastic about
Very challenging, but I feel I learned a lot. Overall it was a good course
The material was interesting. He used the overheads well
The grading scale was very fair. The course focused on disorders with humans,
which is what biomedical engineering students will be focusing on in the
I enjoyed the songs that related to the lectures before class.
Stark was one of the best teachers I had this year. I really enjoyed coming
to this class
Dr Stark is one of the most brilliant individuals I have been taught by
in this department. His class was interesting and informative. If it weren't
for the fact that I am a senior I would gladly sign up for another of his
Very interesting class
I thought the book was great. The instructor was great. He is very comical
and made the lecture interesting.
Awesome course! The only complaint I've heard from past years is people
wish some topics were dedicated more to biomedical engineering but I can
see he made awesome efforts to fix this.
I loved this course.
He was fun to have in class and had good experience stories.
Dr. Stark made physiology a very fun and interesting course. I actually
looked forward to class because he was informative in an attention-keeping
Dr Stark was an excellent and engaging teacher who went above and beyond
my expectations for the course. Dr. Stark made human physiology engaging
and fun to learn. Dr. Stark made great use of his web page by posting the
outlines and the podcasts from each class. The outlines and the podcasts
were very helpful for learning the material and for studying for tests
Dr Stark likes teaching
Excellent class and teaching
Dr Stark you are awesome
Your tests are wonderful! Thank you for being a professor who actually has
expectations for his students. The short-answer format requires that we
take the subject seriously and put in our time (cf. multiple choice). This
can only help us.
Very interesting class. Spent hours pouring over the book and outlines to
study for the tests.
Fascinating test materials.
the level of detail taught and expected was much more than in earlier courses,
but I think that is kind of expected in a course of this level
There was a lot of material but the knowledge I gained was massive
Dr. Stark, you did a wonderful job of tying in this physiology class to
other classes that BME students take, such as physics. It was very interesting
to learn about the cell membrane as being a capacitor and resistor.
lecture was awesome-----like having your brain tickled. I have enjoyed Dr.
Stark's humor, refreshing vocabulary (no one uses such great words in typical
speech!), and abundant hand waving gestures.
Thank you for this resource. (outlines)
Very useful, helped immensely when studying
they definitely helped in organizing for the exams
These helped me get a good understanding on what to study for each exam.
yes! that might have been one of the best study tools I had for this course.
Podcasts were useful.
I utilized the podcasts a lot in preparing for the tests.
Well done, very unique style, wished all teachers done this
It was appreciated but I did not use them that often
Thank you for putting the podcasts online. They were very helpful
The many insights that you offered throughout the lectures (relating to
your research, your life, or society in general) allowed us to better put
course content in perspective.
I felt that the class was a comprehensive overview of everything in the
textbook, and much of what I was curious about in physiology.
I think all the topics were covered very well.
Material was covered very effectively throughout the semester.
There was a lot of information presented in the course at a very good pace.
I learned a lot, and all of the information seemed relevant and applicabl
Probably one of the most interesting biology courses I have ever taken.
I learned a lot pertaining to my career goals as a BME, for
example, how all of the systems interact with each other.
Not only was material from the textbook presented, but there were also outside
articles presented. All of this information seemed relevant to BME.
All of the appropriate topics were emphasized.
we covered a lot of material but it was all very relevant
Covered lots of information in lecture at the appropriate pace.
This was incredibly helpful because I could read the outline
as the teacher was talking instead of trying to write down every word
he said: a much more effective way of learning.
it really helped with studying try to suggest future students to get the
online version of the textbook to correspond with the notes
Outlines from website were extremely helpful. I really liked how they
were all posted at the beginning of the semester so that you could access
any of the lectures at any time and prepare for class. The links to
outside websites on the outline were also useful.
The test questions were very useful and helped a lot with studying.
this was my favorite part of the course i actually enjoyed doing them
It is often difficult to study for a test if you don't
understand the format. The test questions gave me a good understanding
of what to expect on test day.
PowerPoint slides were easy to view, and the figures presented
were always helpful.
Probably the most helpful part of the lectures since it was impossible to
write everything down while the lecture was going on.
I wish that I had discovered the value of the podcasts
earlier in the semester. Listening to them for the third exam really
helped me to absorb the information when I heard it for a second time.
You can also pause or rewind in case you didn't hear it clearly the
The PodCasts were extremely helpful. The PodCasts always helped when
I was reviewing my notes from class and realized that I had missed
something in my notes. It was so easy to open the PodCast and listen
to the lecture to study.
These were useful for classes that I had to miss because of traveling!
this course helps me understand the body so i can find cures in the future
to benefit mankind and cure the sick
I felt that the topics covered a sufficient amount of information.
There were not any syllabus additions or deletions I would make, everything
seemed to be placed just right
All of the topics covered were excellent.
I think we cover an appropriate amount of information
