Comment:
The worst prof/teacher I've ever encountered. Every interaction was either dismissive or snarky. Puts more effort into criticizing students and blaming all of them for "cheating" rather than stepping up to actually give useful assignment feedback. I regret not switching sections earlier. Only reason I have the mark I do is because 3Blue1Brown

Comment:
The entire MATH136 online experience is awful. Maybe it's better in person but online, the professors are rude and unhelpful, TA's rarely respond and the profs do nothing about it. They would rather spend time looking for cheaters on chegg than make proper useful learning tools.

Comment:
I cannot believe how RUDE this professor was. You cannot ask a simple question without getting sassed and a half-assed answer. There were 33 assignments (3/week) and 3 major tests. It was harder to manage than any class ive taken before.

Comment:
Very clear in explaining concepts. Responds to questions with a bit of sass, and may seem intimidating at first, but cares alot about his students and is always open for questions/office hours. Assignments prepare you well for the midterm/final (which were very fair). Very kind man, passionate about what he does, and most hilarious prof I've had!

One of the best profs I've had by far - hands down. He is super enthusiastic about the material and clearly explains stuff during the lectures, and is very easily accessible outside class as well. Make sure to attend all his lectures, and do the assignments.

When he says the Exams cover it all, he truly means all of it, even the little extras that aren't in the text.

Absolute legend. He is very intimidating but will always be glad to answer your question (with sass of course, get used to it in his lectures). The course will be the hardest thing you ever did, but you will know your goddamn calculus when you're done.

Conrad's pretty good. He really, really cares about his students, and does his best to prepare them for the course. He appears a bit scary at first, but if you go to office hours he's really one of the nicest profs you'll ever meet. Conrad definitely saw me through the mess that was the 137 redesign this year.

I found him hard to understand at first, but later I began to love his lectures. He is a great professor, passionate and humorous. If you go to his lecture every time, the assignments and the tests will be easy for you. But make sure you get the middle front seat since sometimes his handwriting is unclear.

Honestly, Con has been the best teacher I have ever had in my entire life. Every single one of his lectures is a blessing, he is simply THE most intellectual and caring person that has ever graced my ears and eyes, and I would love to have him in every single one of my classes. If you think what he teaches is confusing, you are just dumb.

His lectures and office hours are great. You'll get roasted while trying to ask questions but it's worth it. He does care about his students learning the material and puts a lot of effort into teaching. Overall, one of the best profs I've had. For us the assignments were tough but the exams were straightforward.

He was very engaging in lectures and super helpful during office hours (though somewhat intimidating at first because he speaks very loudly). He's really dedicated to helping students understand the course. His lectures were a bit confusing though because he has a strong English accent and jumped around the blackboards a lot.

I love Conrad. He's so enthusiastic about the material, you can't help but get into it as well. He moves really fast though. Don't even think about daydreaming for even a minute or he's two chalkboards ahead already.

Comment:
His notes are fairly difficult to understand and follow because he jumps from board to board. He also doesn't wait for people to understand what he's teaching so write everything down and then review the notes / try to understand them after class. I did not enjoy his classes because his scattered method of teaching stressed me out.
