maths 133 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A
"Tests are tough" "Tough Grader"

He's a good prof but if you come to him for help, he will do the least he can and make you feel uncomfortable for "wasting his time". Make sure you go straight to the point if you have any questions.

Great man, knows his material really well and very helpful during office hours. On the other hand prepare yourself to get crushed if you don't work hard.

MATH 133 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Did not respond to any e-mails with questions I had about the course. Tough to meet in person, and was condescending if you did. Avoid.

The best prof of the semester. Dedicated to teaching which made students concentrate better as well. Clear notes. Fair exams. And with a good sense of humor. He's with a strong accent, but you ll get used to it and start loving it.

math323 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Course itself is not bad, pretty easy material compared to some other math courses I've taken but final and midterm were horrible. The written part is okay but the short answer questions are ridiculous. He won't take into account your reasoning even if it's correct because since we are in McGill he expects us to be some kind of geniuses. AVOID!

He clearly knows his material inside and out. Always supplements each concept with at least one example. Tries his best to clarify the concepts and answer any questions. Beware though, his final exam was very difficult (disproportionate to his midterm). Many people who went into the exam feeling very prepared found it quite difficult.

Kelome is a nice prof, but somehow his exam got a lot harder. Very hard to do well on the final due to the ridiculous multiple choice questions. The writing sections is fairly easy. But average is very low.

He is a good lecturer although he can go a bit fast at times. He gives good examples in class which lead to good notes to study from. My advice is come to class with at least a general idea of what he's lecturing on or else you might be blindly copying notes without understanding.

Math133 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He is no doubt the best Maths Professor of McGill. I used to be so enthusiastic before attending his class at 8.30 in the morning. He have a set pattern and knows his material extremely well. He knows what he is teaching and delivering to the students. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND EVERYONE TO TAKE HIM FOR WHAT EVER COURSE THAT HE IS TEACHING!

excellent teacher. the midterm was kind of tricky but i heard that if you do old midterms it's really easy. the final is completely straight forward. the MC's are mostly from old midterms and the short answers are things he's done in class. never opened the textbook.

He is amazing. So nice, so helpful. Lectures are so clear you dont even need the textbook. He is open to questions, he does tons of examples. If you can take any math course with him do it, you won't regret it. Best math professor I have ever had!!

the man's writing is eligible - people sit across the front of the class with a textbook in hand trying to decypher his writing - if you do not find math easy - avoid this prof.

Kelome is great. He's clear, he does at least two or three examples for each new concept, he gives good instructions for solving problems, and he doesn't waste time. Just be aware that he's smart and he expects you to be too. He encourages the class to follow along with questions, so stay awake.
