Comment:
First time AMath231 is offered online due to COVID-19 I guess. The recorded lectures are pretty clear and concise (although the written notes sometimes could be hard to read) and very logical explanation by Prof Miskovic. The assignments are pretty easy if you understand the lectures content well.

Comment:
Not sure what happened with him and our class but he was very passive aggressive - openly mentioned a few times how he was surprised our class didn't know how to graph hyperbolas. Also has a particular aggressive tone when asking for his help after class. Our class had a mutual dislike with him. Don't know what happened.

Comment:
He is one of the worst professors the university of waterloo has to offer. Very disorganized, lectures are essentially useless as you learn nothing from attending. Accent very thick. Midterm and final were brutal. Assignments do not reflect lectures whatsoever. Horrible teacher, but a pretty nice guy

Comment:
Dr. Miskovic is a really good professor. He does have a strong accent, but it is not bad at all. I enjoyed my classes with him. He is a nice guy, he cares about his students and he provides them with help for the project. With a physics background, I enjoyed his stochastic class.

Comment:
Zoran is a really nice guy, but his lectures jump all over the place. One minute, it's stochastic processes. The next, it's physics, physics, engineering, physics, more stochastic processes, stuff about dust particles... There's no cohesiveness. Engineering students might like it because of his penchant for physical motivation, but I didn't.

I don't know why but I do not follow his lectures at all, even if I try to review every lecture after I got home. I am always so lost and have no idea what he's talking about. :(

Difficult assignments, very easy midterm, pretty hard final. Lectures were hard to follow (went to maybe a fifth of them though). Nice guy. Learned a lot from the course, though.

Comment:
Zoran's lectures are generally very difficult to follow, with no clear outline as to the topic or point. Our assignments were stupidly long and much too difficult. His exams were definitely challenging but not impossible. Would reccomend getting a solid textbook if you have him. Incredibly nice guy, though, so office hours were useful too.

A nice and reasonable man. But his teaching was so confusing. He usually starts his lecture from nowhere without explaining what is going to do and why.

Comment:
Zoran has many qualities of a great professor, but there are areas in which he needs improvement. He doesn't motivate material, nor does he make the problems feel physical/real. To me, this course is simply applied calculus and linear algebra. Despite getting high assignment and midterm marks, I have little understanding of quantum mechanics.

Good initially, then when the hard stuff hit everything became somewhat incomprehensible. He is very good at giving applied examples, which is fantastic coz you see a use for what you are learning.

Zoran is a great prof for Quantum. He knows the material like the back of his hand. His lectures are well organized and motivated. He was really helpful outside of class, too. Overall a great experience. I would absolutely recommend this prof.

Comment:
absolutely useless lectures. this person has no idea how to taech engineers - but the nerds from math might love him though. i assume he is a great scientist but an awful teacher. his answer to the question makes the question even more confusing. he focuses on useless theory which you never apply on exam. midterm reflects assignments closely.
