Comment:
This is my second time having Hans Wenzl for a MATH course here at UCSD. This time, however, this class was somewhat disorganized and the material along with the book used was difficult to work with. Although the material did make sense in the end, the class itself could have been better organized overall. The work was not simple so take caution.

Comment:
Professor Wenzl is an excellent person who clearly cares for his students, but often times he's underprepared for the lectures. Occasionally he gets confused himself and that doesn't help the students. Overall if you know vector calculus its easy A but his homework is usually long and repetitive, they don't help you learn much.

Comment:
Hans Wenzl is not a bad professor. At least when I took him for MATH 20E. I agree he does have an accent but he did teach vector calculus which made sense overall and I am glad I finished my final lower division math course with him. Wish I had walked away with an A but I did not study well enough for the Final with his practice exams. DO STUDY.

His lectures are really bad and doesnt explain things thoroughly. He also comes off as confused and very unorganized. Tests are nothing like the homework either.

The class material is not hard but Wenzl is not very good at lecturing. Makes many mistakes and is not organized. Sort of a joke. Definitely taught myself.

Took him for Math 142A and 142B. Even though they're supposed to be easier than Math 140A and 140B, I still found them rather difficult. Professor has a really heavy accent so it can be difficult to understand sometimes. Make sure you do and understand the homework.

Comment:
He is nice, goes into detail on proofs and derivations if the class wants to see it, gives practice exams, allows a cheat sheet, punctual, has an awesome and helpful TA who goes into detail on matters anyone needs more help on. Gives extra office hours that are agreeable to most people in the class to prepare for the midterm and final.

Comment:
He seems to be a very nice person, except he tries to rush through everything in the book which causes him to be unclear. Doesn't explain everything very well due to the rushing through. Beginning material is easy to self teach but as material gets tougher it all goes to hell. You get stuck on problems and exams become troublesome.

Decent professor, his lectures are pretty helpful when it came to the midterms and the final. The exams were not that hard. Overall, I do recommend him for 20E.

He's really easy and allows a cheat sheet for midterms~ so that helps a lot cause you dont have to memorize all the different terms :) he has an accent so it sounds like he's mumbling sometimes. i never refer to my notes that i take in class... i just read over the chapters to do hw.

He is not the greatest math professor, but at least his exams were fair. He gives long homework assignments and allows cheat sheet for the exams. Do not write a giant mess of cheat sheet; instead, write down all tricks, formulas, and theorems that you proved or used in the homework.

Hard to understand because of his accent, but if you can get past that then the class is easy. He's comical at times.

Comment:
First lecture was ehh but it got better. He seems really nice. Lectures are a little boring but that might be cause I knew most of the info going in (easy A). I really dont think hes as bad as everyone else says but 10C is the easier series, but as a person I think hes nice. He doesn't explain math in depth though, like what the concept means.

Worked harder than I did for any other upper div math class and still got a D. Grades obviously don't reflect effort put in. Other classes, I got A's in so must have something to do with the teaching. The textbook is awful too. Difficult class too. All around, not my fave. Nice guy, smart, just not good with students.

Very unorganized and seems clueless in lectures (which are horribly boring). TA forgets to bring assignments to discussion, and doesn't even have them all available during OH. None of the assignments are grouped by TA so you end up looking through this huge unalphabetized pile of homeworks. Do not recommend.

Boring pointless lectures. However the quizzes and midterm/final were VERY doable. I recommend taking this class if you are willing to teach yourself the material instead of relying on the professor.

I really liked him; he gives easy quizzes every week which helped me to catch up on material before it's too late. His midterm/final are easy and he gives a good curve too. He is also very approachable and is eager to listen to students' questions and is eager to admit his mistakes in calculations etc. Overall, I really liked his quiz policy.
