Purna is a show to see (very entertaining). He isn't the most clear teacher and often focuses on proofs which students aren't used to. The homeworks can be long and often contain a proof, but it's only due once a week. Overall a pretty easy class, plus the tests and final were a joke and he can easily be talked into postponing them.

Purnaprajna (called Purna) is a pretty good teacher. He's a very, very funny guy, and enjoys getting to know his students. His homework is difficult, though, and is often very long. He is the only math teacher that I have ever encountered (as an engineering major) that puts proofs on his homework and tests. Tests were difficult, final was easy.

Not helpful. Hard to understand. Gives tons of homework problems and grade 2 or 3, so if you struggle on one you can fail the whole assignment. Leaves lectures frequently to make personal calls and expects you to stay through them

very difficult to understand therefore very easy to get lost, a math teacher that doesnt know english as a first language is pointless

Overall, he's a great professor. He's willing to work with his students and to answer questions. He does believe in meditation ("go home and meditate" on the theorem of the day) and class participation. He's also crazy in a fun way. Whenever the class kind of dozed off, he'd always wish for swings in class so that we could grab them and swing.

He did not teach very well. Going to class was not necessary. I did not like him overall, I learned absolutely nothing from this class but still got an A.

He looks kinda like an ewok... but he's a great teacher. Very challenging course, but I learned very much.
