Comment:
Worst Prof. I've ever had in all my experience at Waterloo. Extremely unorganized and over-complicates everything. His applications were irrelevant to our field of study, and he often could not answer student's questions about his own assignments. 0/10.

Comment:
His lectures are extremely fast-paced, and he just states what he's writing down instead of summarizing or saying things that can help us understand the content. His notations are not consistent most of the time, and his examinations are quite knowledge based and require more memory, which I did not expect in an AMATH course.

Comment:
He writes very fast without any explanation during the lecture. So, I end up just spending all my time simply writing down the notes without any understanding of what's going on. Also, some of the questions on the assignment wasn't even touched on during the lecture. Course itself is an interesting and rich subject. I wish I had a better prof.

Comment:
Lectures were very disorganized and disconnected. The prof rushed things a lot, and by the time he was moving onto a new topic, people would still be copying from 2 boards back. His notation is also very inconsistent. His assignments have very little in common with the notes, and studying for the exam involves just memorizing the solutions.

Comment:
Kevin Lamb and I have a had a dynamic relationship. When the semester started, being the bright eyed 1B CS student as I was, I was excited to continue where I left off in 147. I was very wrong. What did ensue was perhaps the most riveting and turbulent period in my young life. I also saw him at a KW Chamber Music concert which was cool.

Honestly one of the best profs you can have at this university, made this course really enjoyable. All the tones in the voice made the class a truly enjoyable experience, would love to have this prof for a future course. Absolutely incredibly ability to articulate. Not to mention he dropped the sickest curve since Fermat's Spiral.

Comment:
Very understanding & sincere of a person. Knows that peoples lives arent just school & that they may have personal issues to attend to. One of the few profs ive had that understands/acknowledges mental illness as something serious. While his lectures may be overly detailed, you will use those notes later on 100%. Take advantage of office hours!

He's a tough prof. who knows his stuff. If you go to him for office hours/ask for help outside of class he's very helpful! (Even offered to come in when he was off). His exams are tough, but the course was meant to be tough in general. You'll learn a lot.

He is not as bad as other people are saying. Most of his lectures are ok, clear most of the time, but his examples are overly detailed. He give relatively hard tests and long assignments.

Very smart professor, but very challenging. His exams are very tough, but that is the point. He is very well-read in applied mathematics and can be a big help if you ask the right questions. Be prepared or you may feel foolish.

He is an awesome professor for graduate level courses. He knows exactly what he is doing and never pretend to know the answer when he actually does not...

Conspired with his cohort Tenti to teach the worst Calculus course on earth. Came in every day, heaved a huge sigh, and just wrote and wrote and wrote. Pointless examples. Berated us when we all wanted our midterms remarked. Part of it was a bad course, part of it was a bad prof.
