"Get ready to read" "Tough Grader" "Papers? More like novels"

You will not understand a single world he is saying after the first lecture. Get ready to use online learning and use the text book is you are not sure about something. Don't bother asking him question during lecture or any other time, he will not give you a clear answer. Just to be clear the class second midterm's average was 18% out of 100%.

"Skip class? You won't pass."

Many people don't understand him, but if you keep showing up in his lectures, you'll learn a lot! He likes giving examples in the lectures.

"Skip class? You won't pass." "Lectures are long"

His lectures are horrible. Overall, he is such a nice guy even though it is sometimes hard to understand him. The course is easy, so I basically just taught myself everything. Also his tests are easy and fair.

mat1320C Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Relies heavily on vocal lessons but has a thick accent. His notes on the chalkboard are disorganized, inconsistent and bears no consideration to students taking notes. Ultimately you can't understand what he's saying and you're left with his confusing notes. At least, write better notes so students can self-study, right? But his exams are easy.

Please don't make the mistake of taking him as your prof if you don't have a good background in Calculus..!!

"Skip class? You won't pass." "Tests are tough"

A lot of people complain about his heavy accent - I'll admit it's at times hard to understand him. However, if you pay attention, do homework and study, you'll do fine.

MAT1322 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He was a funny guy who kept class interesting but wasn't very clear with his teaching. Go over class examples more so than the textbook questions as the textbook questions he assigned weren't very relevant to the exams.

Go to class, do your assignments, review your notes and assignments and you'll do well in your midterms and finals :)

Once you get past his thick accent, he's easy to understand and tells you everything that will be on the midterms and exams, doesn't really teach you though just kind of gives examples, so I wouldn't recommend him if you haven't taken calculus before

For a 75 year old I found that he had a lot of energy which I liked but other than that he wasn't a good teacher, his lectures would mostly consist of copying examples.

Professor Li is clearly an excellent mathematician; he is not a very good teacher. I was able to do reasonably well in his class by doing all the textbook homework and by attending DGDs. Lectures are an exercise in futility - they are really not necessary.

He is hard to understand at first but after awhile you get used to it He doesnt understand questions very well and take him awhile to understand what youre asking he makes a lot of mistakes in his examples He writes really fast and you basically have to scribble it down as fast as possible which makes it hard to listen and comprehend whats going on

MAT1300 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is a very nice person, but he isnt very good with explaining the material. Hard to understand. His exams are short and not so hard but confusing. If you miss class u will miss a lot because he covers a lot in each lecture. He gives many examples in class and exams are very similar to those examples. dont miss the DGD's because they help a lot.
