Honestly, taking Justin has brought up my semester GPA by several tenths of a point. I don't mean I would have gotten that much worse of a grade in calc 3 without him; I mean that the sheer time that he saved me by actually teaching in lecture so that I didn't have to teach myself directly translated into time I could invest in other classes.

I love Justin!! He is a great teacher and he doesn't try and trick you on exams. If I could take another class with him I would. He is funny and adorable and he walked on his hands during class. notes are very helpful and his teaching style is crystal clear. He writes everything out clearly on the board and is just fantastic

I believe the "4.9" given, at the moment, for this professor is very accurate. He is as good as people say he is. He is so energetic, kind, smart, funny, charismatic - its almost unreal how good he is.

Very popular guy with a great teaching style: everything is written on the board and he slows down if you ask for more explanations. Lots of curving because this course it very hard!

A rare combination: REALLY good teacher AND a really easy grader. That actually never happens. Plus, he's really awesome.

This guy has the gift. He is the best teacher I've ever had. His energy and clarity make subject matter easy to follow and he explains the reasoning behind the material so it's not just plug and chug. If you ever have an opportunity to take a class with this guy, do NOT pass it up. It is an experience worth having.

Prof. Justin teaches the material by going step-by-step through each example and he even does ex. of harder problems(which other profs rarely do). He is very down to earth for a person who holds a PhD. Assignments: 4 exams (none dropped), 4 matlabs, 12 quizzes (2 dropped), and the final. Doesn't really curve grades since the average is usually high

Very good professor. Neat and organized lectures. Seems to really want his students to understand the material. His homework for this course (Combinatorics) was pretty difficult, but he is extremely helpful, and responds usually within minutes to emails. Highly recommend.

Obviously you can read all of the previous comments and know that Justin is the best math teacher at UMD. But, just to re-enforce it, he really is the BEST math teacher at the school. Personally, I HATE math, but after having Justin I really dont mind it anymore. I took the class spring 2011, and received an A. Take math with JUSTIN!

Justin is absolutely amazing. He is by far the best math teacher I have had in my entire school career. If you have to take Calculus 1 or 2 make sure you do it with him. He is an amazing teacher.

Best professor in the entire university. I made sure to take him for Calc 2, 3 and Diff-EQ. Extremely Clear and thorough in his lectures. Study your notes and you will understand most, if not all the material. If you try hard in his class, you should get an A.

Fantastic professor. His teaching style is so effective that you won't need the book. Great sense of humor. Clear handwriting. Actually has an understandable accent. ONE drawback: he often makes mistakes while working out examples, though they really interfere with the answer.

He is the only teacher I've experienced through out my entire academic life who taught Math and made it easy to understand and interesting. One of the best professors I've had the pleasure of taking a course with. I strongly recommend his class if you plan on taking a Math course at UMD.

Excellent teacher. Made all the information really clear. Definitely go to lecture because he teaches much better technique then the book uses. I only paid minimal attention during lecture because he writes everything on the board. Highly recommend.

Justin is an excellent professor, easily that best that I've ever had. His class is easy, but not because he dumbs the material down. No, it's because he's an extraordinarily gifted teacher who manages to convey the information in an engaging manner. Highly recommended.

Best college professor ever. Knows how to teach with clarity and actually cares about students and tries to teach everyone unlike many other lazy professors who just weed out weak students. Many students get A's and B's because of his aptitude for teaching and he has no inane grade quota/curve based on failing grades like other professors do.

Justin made the class easy and fun, and makes himself very available for help. He also has a great sense of humor (and a cute accent) so its hard not to pay attention in his class. Best math professor ever.
