Comment:
he was a good professor and his exam was very easy. The tests were hard for me because of the swiftness of the course, and it was my first semester in university, so my studying skills were poor. So don't be a slacker if you want a good mark. I could have done better. Extremely fair and kind, and approchable. Never be afraid to knowk on the door.

A very approachable professor. He is clear and helpful. Seems to enjoy teaching the subject. Will always help you out if you go to see him outside of class.

Comment:
While certainly qualified to teach the class he was at times rather obtuse in his teaching method - could have made the material a lot clearer. First-year calculus isn't easy, I don't think he made it any easier for anyone.

I liked this proffessor because it wasn't a crap class. If you did the work, you got the marks you deserved. There was no BS involved. He is very clear, organized, and he is very receptive to students who want to learn. Don't take the class if you expect to take the easy way out. This class is hard core homework!

Very hard tests! He likes to skip steps when doing examples, he doesn't bother to say goodmorning, he assumes you know more than you actually do! Very hard class!

Comment:
Terrible tests. If you don't use his method, he'll give you zero for a problem regardless if you got it right. Posts sample tests to try and help but they have little relevance to the ones you actually write. I like calculus as a general rule, but this guy just makes it a pain.

Very smart guy. Assumes everyone remembers everything they learnt in high school. Tests are brutal. Kinda makes you feel dumb by saying "its obvious that..." and "using simple algebra..." ITS NOT OBVIOUS AND ITS NOT SIMPLE! AND SAY GOO

You can tell from the get-go that this guy knows what he's doing 100%. Good in class. My only gripe is that when he assigns numbers, he'll just assign a certain section and in the tutorial he'll go over whatever numbers he wants.You never know which ones.

Only did examples from the text book, skipped steps that the text book skipped...did not explain clearly. Better off just reading the text book for explanations or going to tutorials

Can seem a bit intimidating because he knows his stuff inside-out. He is very thorough, organized, and clear. He assigns good selections of problems, and tests and exams reflect the assigned homework very well.

Great Prof: his are some of the few classes worth attending. You can't quite shake the feeling that he knows what he's talking about.
