Comment: Kieth is brilliant...but insane. Totally disorganized class, kept changing assignments throughout the semester, and he was never there. He only talked to you if he found you interesting. The GSIs and Kieth never really seemed to agree on what the assignment was, but I think even Kieth didn't agree with Kieth. Thank god for Jon Kershner.

Comment: The assignments are just okay; it isn't clear what we're supposed to learn from them. I'm not quite sure what i learned in this class. The professor seems brilliant and is helpful during pin-ups, but other than that he probably won't talk to you unless he really likes your work.

Comment: If you do not talk to him, he won't talk to you unless your work stands out. He seems brilliant with ideas though the way he talks to students is sometimes very philosophical and hard to interpret. The assignments he gives does help students to learn more about Rhino and spacial construction.

Comment: He's an enthusiastic professor and an interesting guy. However, his assignments are too broad and grades are more based on what your GSI thinks.

Comment: Tainted, weeded, and disgusted. Changed majors because of this course. Stay strong, one over arching project without previous notice, uninspired and absolutely confusing. 4 years here at CAL, Plymale is like the material itself, dull and a tool. That's my point of view, you can always suck and keep sucking him until he makes you his bezzy and a FAVORITE.
