Math 100 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A
"There for you" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Inspirational"

Math 100 at UBC is no joke. Its immensely more difficult than AP calculus. But having Maxim as a prof definately helped. Office hours are the key to success. He does a really good job of explaining things. And if he takes a liking to you he tries even harder to make sure you are in a position to succeed

"Inspirational" "Amazing lectures" "There for you"

Maxim started the semester with a bang; he was super motivational and made the class love math. He was always helpful and had open office hours during midterm and final exam time. This class started off my undergraduate career well and will probably remain my favorite class.

Professor Maxim is by far one of the best profs I've had! It's only been 2 weeks I've been in his classes but I must say that he is AMAZING!!! He knows what he's talking about, he solves many problems with his students in class, makes sure everyone has understood perfectly if not he is very open to questions which encourages everyone to participate
