Panos is the man. He is the most passionate person I've ever met. This class about 'dynamics' was very 'dynamic'. I liked him being very nice to his students and actually cares about what he does. He sends out an announcement email every week (on Sunday). He is a mad genius in applied math, very interactive and accessible outside the class.

Panos is easily the best professor I've ever had. He is extremely passionate about the subject, cares about his students success, and is always available if you need extra help. He has a very effective and dynamic teaching style that makes you interested in the class.

PK is probably the best professor I've had last semester. Always enthusiastic and always having fun teaching. Blames his minor errors on his excitement and he is always trying to crack a laugh during class without getting off topic. Great Professor. Great class. You don't even need a book! Definitely recommended.

Great professor! I haven't had any good experiences with the math department here and he makes up for all the other teachers. He moves fast and is tough in class, but is a very reasonable grader and is always around to give pointers and help on any assignment. I would HIGHLY recommend taking any class you can with him.

Best. Professor. Ever. Explains things so thoroughly there's no need for the book. 80% of grade is decided by tests, 20% by quizzes, homework and participation. He's a great guy, so enthusiastic. He loves teaching and math. Learns everyone's names. I'm looking at what other classes he teaches just to take another one of his classes.

Honestly the most excellent math teacher I have ever had. Unmatched enthusiasm. He wants everyone to understand what he is teaching to the best of their ability. Makes everyone understand math, and actually shows that he is invested in each student's success. I wish I could have him for all of my math classes.

Best math professor ever. Very engaging, enthusiastic, great sense of humor, and inspires interest in the students. Try to take any class you can that he teaches. I know he currently teaches 532 and 534 so for applied math majors out there, find him.

He is the most amazing professor I have ever had. I recommend him to everyone, especially people who are terrible at math. I am a math major, but junior year took a graduate level math class with him, and he was VERY thorough. He is by far the best math professor at Umass. I took classes that I didn't need to have him. Amazing, absolutely amazing.

Calculus II is terrible, but this guy is one of the best math professors I have had. He gets very into his math, and sort of expects everyone else too, but he's still a great professor. Lots of quizzes, but in the end they help you pass a hard class.

I actually took this class with a different professor, but went to quite a few of PK's review sessions, and I wish I had him as my professor. He easily cleared up points of confusion that I was stuck on for weeks with my other professor. He makes the material seem easy and less stressful. A+

Best teacher I have ever had. Explains things so clearly and offers help whenever you need it. Made a difficult class an easy A for me. If you have to take calc try to get him.
