Comment: Very unorganized. Does not care what happens to the students. No interest in making the students learn. Just wants to get it over with. Assignments were alright.

Comment: Okay, so Dibble is a bit unique and eccentric. He is a super fun lecturer and share tons of stories to illustrate a point (or just because he feels like telling a story...). The class is not that much work. His exams are impossible to finish, but he curves the class. Ask questions if you are confused and he will try to help.

Comment: Professor Dibble was rather eccentric, always friendly, and very enthusiastic. His chalkboard lectures were extremely disorganized but interesting and sometimes provided little gems of insight. Dibble switched to textbook-provided PowerPoint for the last month or so, which was less useful. The material in thermo was admittedly boring at times, with tons of algebra and looking up numbers from tables, I kid you not. But the concepts were generally elegant and graspable. The four quizzes (midterms, really) contained simple questions and were based on speed; almost no one finished completely in the 45-minute time period.

Comment: This guy can't teach. He has nothing to do in lecture except telling his own stories. Lectures are boring and unclear. You can never finish a single exam on time.

Comment: Lectures may be unclear and writing illegible. WE constantly remind him to write bigger on a not well lit blackboard every 15 minutes. Office hours is good.
