DISCLAIMER: Took the class online during quarantine, maybe he's a better teacher in-person? Lecture style was very disjointed and confusing--our TA could explain every concept better in half the time. Lecture notes were disjointed and difficult to read, questions weren't answered clearly or well. Would recommend finding a different prof if possible

Comment:
This professor is quite difficult to understand and is disorganized during his lectures. He doesn't respond well to feedback and can be rude when questions are asked. His grading system is ridiculous, he actually went against the normal grading scale and made it harder to get an A or a B in the course(needed over 90 or 80 respectively).

Comment:
He is the kind of professor to give you a lot of homework and make you study all by yourself. The topics of the class are pretty simple, but prepare to learn by yourself. All of that would be enough to make him a bad professor, but he is absolutely unable to take any criticism. Worst math proff I have ever had

The tests feel like a challenge as to what is actually taught in the lecture. Not helpful when asked questions or advice. Much of the new material is just assumed to be known.

Learn material on own time or in conference. Equations will be pulled out of midair and brushed over in less than a second. Teacher doesnt explain steps or even read aloud what hes doing. Erases board fast and inaccurate so reading the board is a front rows thing. Text book is needed for homework.

honestly just take my word for it and don't take his class. he tries to explain things through confusing metaphors and no one has any idea what he's saying, attendance is not mandatory and after the first exam people just stopped showing up. not good at explaining things and will get mad at you for not understanding the material.

Professor has high standards for his students. He doesn't care if you're here to mess around or be rude. Great feedback and approachable outside of class. Recognizes students who seek out help and takes note of it accordingly. Show up, do the work, be respectful and you will do well. Professor is funny at times and is known to roast students.

Funny guy, knows his stuff, allows formula sheet front and back, provides practice tests and actual tests are pretty similar. Gives lots of partial credit if you show work. Pretty easy A as long as you do the work, go to class, and get help if you don't understand something by going to office hours, MASH, tutoring, etc. Overall would recommend.

Dalin Tang is not a bad person. He knows his material, and if you actually pay attention to his lecture, you pick up a decent amount of information. However, participating in his class is a wild ride, even though he really wants you to. When I tried, he roasted me, so I kinda just layed low for the rest of the term. However, he is a good professor.

Pretty confusing and disrespectful. Attendence was not graded, but he got mad when only a few people showed up. He based his cutoff of A, B, and C off of how well the class did, not off how many points were earned on the assignments. With no way to check your grade, final grading was confusing and we had to get like a 94% to actually get an A.

He gets off from failing his students. Class test averages were about 40%, I passed with a 50%. Get ready to teach yourself. Sal Khan was the only way I survived.

basically spend around 2-hour per week watching stock price and write the report. It was a little bit rough on start, since we didn't get on the same idea and had to do a lot of initial research. However, gave good and helpful feedback, knew what he wanted, reasonable and always available to answer questions. Overall, highly recommended for IQP.

He is a really good professor. Gives you the freedom to choose your resources. The IQP gives you a great experience with the investment in stock market. Just follow what he says and you will be fine

Comment:
Professor Tang was very disappointing in terms of clarity. Most of my classmates would agree that the conferences were the only consistent source of help with the class topics. Unfortunately he is also not always respectful of all his students, especially during office hours, AND I suspect one of my exam grades was lowered for non-academic reasons.

Comment:
Some professor tell stories to keep you interested but they only do that once they get their point across. This guy, however, cuts in right in between the lesson and goes off topic which was terrible. he is confusing and you won't survive without a good conference instructor. The comment below mine has exaggerated the matter. he's not that bad.

TERRIBLE PROFESSOR. DID NOT TEACH ONE THING - DO NOT GO TO LECTURES. VERY DEGRADING AND ALWAYS RUDE TO HIS STUDENTS. IF YOU GO TO HIS OFFICE HOURS, HE WILL CALL YOU STUPID AND KICK YOU OUT. LEARNED EVERYTHING FROM CONFERENCE. DO NOT TAKE THIS PROFESSOR - HE IS SO UNBELIEVABLY RUDE AND DOES NOT CARE ABOUT HIS STUDENTS.
