Excellent lecturer, with great explication of proofs. Weekly assignments deepened knowledge of various analysis topics (a lot of summation and series) in addition to Fourier series. Challenging exams but generous curve allowed us to prioritize learning over competition.

Comment:
The way he explains the material is amazing. I never missed a day from his lectures. You will understand most of it from being in class (which of course you should be). Exams were fair, but his style of throwing in a tricky one for the ones that are looking for A or A+. Bottom line he is the best professor at York.

Comment:
Smart, knowledgeable and interesting but 30% of tests/assignments are deliberately poorly worded ambiguous homemade questions(good luck getting a B). Uses cobbled together notation from places other than the text. Answering a question takes him 5 mins by re-explaining what you didn't ask or answering it in the first sentence and then same as above

Comment:
this prof may like teaching MATH1300, but he's easily the worst math teacher ive ever had. his lectures are absolutely useless, you can pay attention but nothing ever sinks in. he can't teach. ur better off taking the easier 1500 calc course.

He is a very good boy.He is a gypsy of probability and financial mathematics. Takes interest in teaching the material but is a bit disorganized. Although if you ask him he answers the questions.

Comment:
He's by no means a bad professor, and he certainly seems to care enough to answer students' questions if they have them. I find that the notes he writes on the board are not very well thought out, and he doesn't seem to have a lesson plan prior to class. His marking scheme to be a on the easy side, which is probably why he's rated highly.

Dr. Salisbury was a great prof this term. He's very fair in terms of grading and crystal clear when he lectures. He's willing to provide extra help if you take it upon yourself to seek it. 5/5!

Very clear prof. that explains topics fairly well. The last month of the course gets tough resulting in a tough exam but the other tests and quizzes aren't so bad. Study hard and ask for help if needed. The textbook by Kochman isn't the best so if you can, refer to other texts for help.
