Information About Teacher
Professor Moy is, overall, a very good teacher.
Moy is pretty funny and enjoys making the class laugh (although sometimes his humor is a bit "off-color").
Moy is a practical teacher. He teaches the course using simple principals and strategies which are easy to memorize and apply in the real world.
Moy assigns, but does not collect, homework. All those who do the homework usually pass with A's.
Moy's exams are taken (almost directly) from the home work. His exams are also very similar to his notes (see Downloads section below).
The Mechanics of Materials book is required and is used often in class. However, Moy does not care whether you use the old or new edition.
