MATH 1013 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He may not be the best at explaining concepts but his tests (at least for this course) were very very fair. This course is mostly gr12 review so no complains from me.

Math 2030 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

It's one of those classes where you sit, watch the prof, and wonder how on earth he got his position. WORST PROF EVER. He cannot teach and he is VERY difficult to understand! He's just as disorganized as the textbook. Just another self-teaching course, like any other math course at York. Please try to avoid!

Very sweet guy; always helpful and cooperative. His tests are pretty reasonable but his messy writing and disorganized notes are kind of hard to follow. Overall, not too bad.

Math 2030 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Possibly the worst prof ever! Recommended the book which is equally useless! His explanation is terrible and expects that u know this already! Save your money, avoid this guy!

MATH1013 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He's a really nice guy and very cooperative when you request something or ask questions. However, his accent and unclear writing make it hard to follow the lesson.

The guy is very nice as he bellcurves as needed. However, he can't teach for his life. If you rely only on the textbook, you can get an A in this course like me :)

On the upside, he's nice and tries to answer questions that you ask. However, his lecture notes jump from concept to concept, and aren't indicative of the material that you need to know. I relied EXCLUSIVELY on the textbook for this course; I did not learn any new concepts from his class alone. But if you work hard, you can do well in any course.

MATH1013 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He's a nice guy, but very difficult to understand, notes are hard to read. Doesn't use technology at all, writes all his notes in incomprehensible script on chalkboard. Tests are reasonable, but you're better off just reading the textbook and teaching yourself.

He's really nice, and his tests are reasonable. His accent is awful but it can be understood if you pay attention. Though we find it easier to read the textbook directly and attend classes as practice.

MATH3090 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Please listen to everyone else who posted. This prof is the WORST prof ever. He's like Alip+Purzitsky but WORSE. He acts nice on the outside, but he's just pretending to get his promotion. Don't waste your time and money with him. He gives ORAL exams! Comes late to class, ends classes late and he's in the biology department but teaches math >=(

Good teacher but hard to understand because of his accent. Exams are relatively easy if you don't miss the classes, take notes and do the exercises.

MATH2030 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

worst professor ever! very monotone, very unexpected exam worth 55%, very hard and full of industrial statistics. Other group in the same exam class had an exam that had inclusion-exclusion question, while we had calculus questions! only solves his handout questions, no instuctions or a learning process provided! GARBAGE!

This is bad professor. Dont risk your money or mark with him. Messy, non-sequential, presentation of course material during lectures. Impossible final exam. Does not answer questions, just repeats your question and continues on. Does not answer emails at all. Not a pleasant experience.

MATH1505 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Train of thought is very difficult to follow, he jumps all over the place, notes on the board are very scattered. Does not answer questions asked, just explains something else. Sometimes stops partway through an explanation. Seems like a nice guy, but just does not know how to teach at all. THIS WAS MY WORST EXPERIENCE AT YORK UNIVERSITY.
