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

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.

If you struggle with math, don't take it with this prof. I know a lot of people complain about Li's accent, but it's really not the problem... He just can't teach. All he does is write problems on the board and expects you to know how it's done. If you can't learn this way please for the love of god, do not take this prof.

He's a nice guy but horrible prof. He is the hardest marker, one mistake will make you lose majority of your marks for that question. He asks complicated questions at times and the class avg was 40% for both midterms(so bad he said the final can be our final mark). Avoid him, switch out.

I attended every class and by the end of the semester started experiencing rage toward him. Never ever ever ever again will I permit myself to take a course with him. He does not TEACH. Throws examples at you with minimal transitional 'explanations' and sends you home. Thank god for an amazing TA! Never, ever, ever, ever again!

Really really nice prof, funny too. All he said in class are very helpful and important. Should have some class notes and examples posted online though.

Love him as a prof, makes some funny jokes and uses really relevant examples in his lectures. Didn't TEACH integration very well though, had to figure it all out on my own for the final.

Horrible prof. He does not know how to teach. I would have really appreciated to have a math TEACHER not a prof who simply copies his own examples on the board.. I recommend that you read the text before attending class--his notes are only a source of examples. If I were you I'd try switch out of this prof's course while I still had the chance!

Good prof, takes his midterm questions from the examples done in class. People like to complain about and blame his accent for their problems in the course but if you just pay attention and get over the fact that english is not his first language he's not hard to understand. show up to class and pay attention and you'll do well.

Going to class is beneficial since he uses his own examples and notes. He often explains the concepts more clearly than the textbook does. His exams are fairly easy if you take the time to learn the material. His accent makes him hard to follow sometimes but you can usually keep up with him.

AMAZING PROF! Everything is straight forward and he has great explanations. As long as you attend his lectures, you'll have no problem.

I don't know why he decided to teach the course in some random order; makes the whole thing messy and impossible to follow properly. Will give you the worst examples possible, skipping steps and simply copying his notes, while making mistakes. Goes so fast copying his notes that you won't catch a thing, and also unreadable. Course is easy tho.
