Comment:
I found it really hard to learn anything from him and most of the time I would learn it on my own. His lectures were very boring and although it seems like he knows what he's doing he does a really bad job at explaining anything. I ended up doing well only because I previously took this class. And even still, I struggled.

I honestly don't know how this guy is a professor. Extremely unprofessional. He won't even answer your questions and will bomb you on every and any assignment. He only teaches Math 337 but it's ridiculously hard or impossible. Do not take under any circumstance.

Comment:
A lot of people gave him a bad rating but I think he's actually a really good teacher. Yes he has an accent, but it's not bad at all, just make sure to sit in the front. He makes his section harder to get an A but it's still manageable if you like/know math and know your content well. He gives curves and his tests aren't that hard.

Comment:
He is the worst professor I've ever experienced. I wouldn't with this on my worst enemy. Have a question about homework? He's going to ghost you until after the hw is due and then say its too late. The feedback is going to be "0/10 WRONG" without any explanation as to what was incorrect and how to fix it. He's collecting a paycheck, not teaching.

Comment:
Hardest and least productive class I have ever taken as a STEM professional. Only posted 15 minutes of lecture a week w/ limited examples, the rest was self taught from books/notes. Tests contained odd case proofs, and he wouldn't answer questions on homework until after due. Condescending & inflexible. Goal seemed to be to cut grades not educate

Comment:
For me, this was round two for calc 2 ,and I thought the AP Calc BC class I took in high school had more depth than this professor's class. Even with prior knowledge, this class was still difficult. He has a heavy accent, and it can be difficult to understand him sometimes. He doesn't explain concepts well and talks to the board.

Just take out tons of your points with minor errors. None of his example showed the way how the HW should be done.

He gives the Class notes that are almost a decade old. He doesn't explain the material well at all. His tests are ridiculously hard and the whole class nearly failed it. He just goes over minitab and doesn't explain it at all.

He gives the class notes, but his tests are HARD. However, if the final 3 Tests are better than the first, he will drop the first and count the average of the final 3.

The class is doable if you teach yourself. Unfortunately, Professor Aminzadeh is hard to understand, and the language barrier prevents him from explaining things in other ways.

He gives notes that are really helpful. He also gives out step by step answers to homework and quizzes.But the class is TOUGH! He gives out 2 tests and 1 final. The first test is really HARD. The 2nd test is easy because the content is easy. But the final will blow your mind! Prepare to spend a lot of time studying.

I've always been great at math and I had to withdraw from his class! This semester I have Goodson and practically have a 100%. That said Aminzadeh is a really really bad teacher. I think the only way you could pass this class is if you've already learned calc somewhere else because you're not going to learn it from him...

Comment:
I am a math major, and this professor is terrible. he doesn't take attendance, but says it's required to pass the class. The notes he uses he wrote in 2009. Notes are not clear at all. Tests are very hard even if you do study. Ended up teaching myself the material from the textbook and crossing my fingers I passed the class.

Does not take attendence, does not require homework to be completed. Tests are 75% of grade. He will put things on there that he says to not bother remembering in the lecture because it is not required for the class. Never opened textbook once. Easy to pass, hard to do well.

Stats, very easy teacher, he gives you an equation sheet for all of the tests. Go to stats labs because if you miss 25% of the assignments you cannot pass with a C. His tests are very easy as long as you went to class and have your equation sheet.

Never had to drop a class until him. He is really helpful but his tests are really hard;they include a lot of proofs. Gives a lot of homework but it's helpful. Only take him if probability is your strength.
