Took the honors abstract algebra sequence: On the first day he told us, in regards to the homework, something along the lines of "Only through suffering will we learn" Dear God he was right. If you survive he is nice. Tests are often impossible, but he assigns grades on a curve he sees fit, very fair.

He writes on the board faster than you can write on your paper. He asks "do you understand" but you can't answer because you can't think because you are still trying to copy his work on the board. This guy is super smart and he literally owns the subject. He's a pretty good lecturer, but unfortunately teaching is not his strength.

If you take this professor you will learn a lot. He grades hard but fair. Very smart...comes up with his own numbers on the spot for examples. Make sure you make yourself known. If he sees you are trying he will help you out.

Very nice, but difficult class. A bit of an accent but you can understand everything he says. Sometimes can't find easier to explain examples, probably because the material is nowhere near easy to comprehend. Will help you with whatever you need. Homework isn't mandatory, but if you want a good grade, make it mandatory for yourself.

This was the best math class I ever had! It was hard, but I learned so much. I really prepared me for Math 457!

Not a bad teacher per se, but my god he is difficult. It is like he is doing math on a totally different planet... Watch out for those tests, there will be things on there you will NEVER have seen before... Lowest grade of my college career...

He is brilliant and a joy to watch, unfortunately he is so smart that he can't comprehend that anyone might not understand everything perfectly. This class was very hard, and you pretty much have to teach yourself because he goes so fast in class (usually 6-8 pages of notes per lecture) that you have no time to absorb anything.

Gives a lot of notes, never cancels class, and hardly ever lets class out early. That being said, he's a pretty good teacher who seems to care whether or not the students learn. The tests are difficult but he curves. The homework can actually hurt you so make sure you do it correctly.

This guy is absolutely brilliant. His class is EXTREMELY challenging, though, so plan to spend many hours studying and doing homework for his class. If you ask for help, he will assist you, although you'll probably have to think on your own very often.
