Professor Szeto is a nice, caring professor, but his lectures will not be helpful. He refers to textbook use, and skims very quickly through textbook sections, talking more about "why this matters" than "how this works." Make your own notes from the textbook, and do as many practices as possible, and you should be okay. Don't rely on the lectures.

He is good in making complicated math much simpler and explaining it, but he is a hard marker. He is a also a pretty nice and smart guy. Plus, the greatest thing about him is he tries really hard to teach and convey the message to you.

Hard class, Szeto will remind you regularly to drop if you can't do well. But it's not so bad. He drops your worst test score and curved a bit at the end. The class is almost directly out of the textbook so its a matter of preference how you like learning the material from him or the book. If you get a chance to speak to him hes pretty cool.

Math 1013 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: C

He has to be the worst math prof at york. Makes the online assignments so hard and the tests even harder. He'll teach you stuff that he'll never test you on. Lectures are waste, just does examples from the textbook that have already been explained in the book. If possible, avoid taking the class with this prof COMPLETELY. ~easy material, hard prof.

Professor Szeto's lectures aren't helpful; they're good for clarifying things. This means if you want to do good in the class, you have to read, take note of, and do as many practice problems pertaining to each section that is going to be examinable. His lectures are more about "why should you care" instead of "what this means." Tests are tricky.

He's a nice guy. Very approachable. You only get 45 minutes on tests, which includes some stuff you've never seen before. Allocating 10% of the test to a proof isn't a smart idea for an applied calculus test. Lectures are useless, he just reads the textbook. Take advantage of pass sessions - you'll need them!

EATS 3020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I wasn't thrilled. He was not very clear, and his notes were not that great at all. I found Google a lot more helpful. He is very helpful though, if you go and see him during office hours. Please avoid this class or take a substitute unless it is absolutely necessary.
