Mr. Lee is probably the worst instructor I have ever had. He is hard to understand, when asking questions about the material he is teaching he gets aggravated, and he will not work with you if you need a little extra help on a certain section.

Worst instructor to take Math with. You will not learn anything in his class. If he is on the schedule, DO NOT TAKE HIM. RUN RUN RUN FAST AWAY FROM HIM.

Math 60 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

STAY THE H AWAY FROM THIS GUY. HE DOES NOT TEACH YOU ANYTHING. YOU CANNOT UNDERSTAND HIM. HE OVERLOADS YOU WITH WAY TOO MUCH HOMEWORK. HE DOES NOT EXPLAIN ANYTHING IN THE CLASSES AND YOU HAVE TO READ AND UNDERSTAND THE BOOK YOURSELF. DO NOT TAKE THIS GUY. THE WORST INSTRUCTOR EVER, EVER EVER.

He's hard to understand at first. You get used to it, it gets easier. Mr. Lee teaches Fast Track courses, so the workload being huge in a short amount of time is to be expected. Every question I've asked has been answered clearly. He doesn't like to dwell on what you should already know this far into math because it's such a fast course.

Very hard teacher. Not easy to understand. Homework is self paced with assignments due at the end of class. Tests and quizzes are extremely hard.

If math is easy for you to understand then you should take him. But, if math is not an easy subject for you then I don't recommend taking him. He talks fast, he doesn't explain well, and his tests are difficult. And he only gives 5 points for all the homework you do at the end of the semester.

Hard to understand verbally, but he oommunicated mathematiclly well. Tests reflected HW, and he was fair in grading. You will learn and earn your grade.

Math was my favorite subject, he made me hate it!! >:[ He gives soooo much HW(about 30-40 problems PER SECTION!!) and its only worth 5% of grade!! No test reviews. He doesnt give enough time to complete tests and they are HARD! Take him only IF YOU DONT WORK or IF YOU DONT HAVE A LIFE! You will need to spend many hours teaching yourself! BEWARE

Professor Lee was very helpful! He would go above and beyond to help you if you needed it. Emails were addressed promptly. The courses he was teaching were Fast-Tract and therefore a lot of content in a short period of time. He is a good Professor!

Very difficult to follow and comprehend; Does not give good instruction. This was more of a student self taught class; STRONGLY advise taking another teacher before taking him.

There are not works to describe how awful he is. I couldn't understand a word he was saying, and he expects you to automatically get everything. If you struggle in math he will only confuse you more. Seriously don't bother taking his class! Plus he is a jerk. Tip Lee: Learn proper english if you want to teach in America!!!

I have to disagree with the negative comments, for one thing you have to remember it is a fast track class, but i think he is extremely helpful. My suggestion would be to use blackboard i think its helping out alot. There is a ton of homework, but the extra practice cant hurt any.I plan on enrolling in his Math 60 class.

Mr. Lee is by far the worst professor I've ever had at Palomar. He's almost impossible to understand, and when you ask questions in class he's like, "We've already gone over this!" He doesn't teach math, he does problems and expects you to understand. I will NEVER take a class with him again.

Math135 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I hated every minutes i attend the lecture, fast pace. He give you partial credit for attendance, and 10% for complete all of the hw. I love Math, Math is my life, he make me second that thought. Hit ur self in the wall if u even think of taking him.Bottom lines is do not take this teacher for this subject. And this is coming from a Math major.

Very hard to understand. Tons of homework must do every problem to get full credit. Tests are very hard and not much like the homework or classwork. not impressed. good luck if you are enrolled.

Math135 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Lecture consists almost entirely of number-for-number textbook examples. The language barrier makes it hard for him to explain things in different terms. Makes many algabraic/arthmetic mistakes on board. Grading is fair: gives partial credit, drops lowest exam for grade on final, homework is 5% of entire grade, attendance gives you +5% on final.
