Math 109 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He is a good professor, but he teaches too fast. His midterms and final are also difficult. Yes,whenever he uses symbols on the exams that were not used in class, he explains what they mean on the exam days. However, it's quite unfair to do that because that could throw the students off. Compared to the homework & midterms, the final was tough.

He is the best professor I took this quarter. Take him if you could. Test materials are all on the lecture notes. Very straight forward. I like his teaching style a lot.

MATH 109 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

The concepts are very difficult to grasp. He is very good at explaining the concepts, but the class is still very hard.

MATH102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Fantastic professor. You can learn everything just by listening to whatever he says in lectures, so reading the book is totally optional. Exams are hard but representative to the lecture materials.

Math103B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

At first, I thought he was the most stuck-up, strict egotist in the entire department. Nine weeks with him and I've never had a better math prof. The passion with which he teaches is hard to ignore, and it compels students to want to work harder for themselves. Even though I may not get an A in the course, still liked it a lot.

MATH20C Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

AMAZING PROFESSOR, he wasn't even my offical professor, I had a horrible professor, so i would wake up at 8am just to show up to his lectures, so I can't speak for his midterms and final. But I will say after EACH lecture I NEVER had to look at the book to clarify anything. He is a model for math teachers.

Math20C Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Fantastic lecturer, you really walk away knowing more than you did going in. Engaging and incredibly clear. Displays mastery of the information. Difficult tests.You have to rely on the curve. Weekly homework is graded, turned-in in dropbox, discussions not mandatory. ta's not allowed to do hw problems during disc. He is arrogant but backs it up.

He's very clear and understandable in his lectures, even though he does have a slight accent. He truly cares about his students and what he is teaching. His tests are hard, but manageable. Take him! He's really good at what he does.

math20c Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

very great lecturer! you will probably understand the concepts during lecture.however, his midterms are really hard! online practice midterms, review sessions, and homework problems are not the same as his tests. he expects you to use your creativity and work really really really really hard for an A.
