Elementary-level lectures in an advanced math class. The guy really loves math and wants his students to succeed, but he just can't teach. Assignments were much too easy, course came straight from the text, exams assumed things that were never covered. I have no idea what these other raters were thinking. Definitely the worst prof I've had :(

He is super patient and kind with students. He is extremely knowledgeable of the subject. However, his lectures are way to slow and he tends to wander off, spending time on obvious points that everyone gets, yet omitting much harder problems which he would later put on his exams. He gives: grade school lectures, high school hw & grad school exams.

Teaches painfully slow. Only does super easy and trivial examples in class and then wonders why people can't figure out how to do harder stuff on the homework and tests. Final exam was very odd and ignored large parts of the course. Course never really "came together," the progression didn't flow very well at all.

His notes were next to useless. He hardly gave any examples to help you. He was SO SO painfully slow at teaching and he missed chunks of the material. Also we usually hadn't learned the stuff we needed to know for each assignment. Also the grading on midterms was outrageous, you lose points for everything, even if the answer is correct.

He was incredibly clear, but he taught at a painfully slow pace. We could have accomplished far more in 12 weeks than we actually did. Also, his assignments were very, very easy and hardly prepared us for the somewhat challenging midterm and final exams. I don't see the point in giving assignments if they're not going to teach us anything.

Do you want do assn BEFORE you learn the knowledge in class? Do you want to feel good in exam, but lose a lot of mark for detail when you see the mark? Do you want to know how to do a question but prof tells you "you guys all know why"? Ng's class will train your self study ability. Believe me he won't teach you anything useful.

I took two classes with C.T. Ng and enjoyed both of them :) He's perfect for those who can learn independently. His lectures solidify textbook understanding, his assignments don't take long to do, and you can get help anytime (AND proofs are optional)! But if you rely on a prof to teach you everything, then he's probably not for you...

Lectures were just statements of definitions and theorems - only about half the theorems covered had proofs. Exam was brutal as expected of Ng. Covered material not covered by assignments.Overall; Avoid A group of us didn't take this course the first time around because Ng was the teacher - didn't matter he taught it the second time as well :(

Unclear and vague in explanations. I took the course and learnt nothing - he basically ruined pure math for me. Guys like him should stick to research, or teach courses like first year algebra/calculus, which aren't easy to screw up.

Spends 20 minutes describing what "with respect to" means without explaining the actual theorems. Doesn't post assignment solutions. Lecture notes were pretty much useless.

Does not post assignment solutions, does not give final exam information sheet. Very slow teaching style in class (ie takes 10+ mins to write down the statement of one theorem). Very unclear as to what is coverable, making it hard to study for exams.

Very reasonable, and exceptionally helpful outside class; didn't have any interest in topology until his class; takes care of concepts in class and leaves details for assignment; highly recommended; he does not entertain elitists -- but there is no loss -- they can just take a nap;

Very unorganized teacher and poor communicator. Will not help you prepare for your finals/midterms and assignments are nothing like the text. Pretty much teaches his version of lin algebra and stays away from the book. I did however attend every class and would fall asleep from lack of understanding

His lectures are as good as MATH 235 can get. His English could be a lot worse - 2nd year students have heard nothing yet! Shows a good # of examples whereas profs in other sections HATE examples. You must come to class or you will miss on a lot of exam material. Textbook is a supplement, not a replacement for attending class.
