Comment:
George was a pretty bad professor. He obviously doesn't take in any feedback from the previous semester or improve his teaching; we had the same issues as the semester before during exams. Uses the same lectures from previous terms even if there are mistakes. Slides disorganized and really dull. The curve is high so watch out. TAs are terrible too

Comment:
The class was very disorganized. Assignments would take me 10 hours to finish because there were so many questions to do. Both midterm and final were poorly run and all multiple choice. Professor was not accessible and TAs were not very helpful either. I would not recommend this prof.

Comment:
I did not enjoy prof Zhang. He taught the class asynchronously which was great because I could watch the lectures at 1.5x speed. Stats is already a bland, uninteresting topic for me and his lecture style did not help

Comment:
The TAs were rude and unhelpful. The (online) exams were run poorly. The exam questions had mistakes making the questions logically impossible. All of the lectures were prerecorded YouTube videos, so I'm not sure what George was doing all semester. Would avoid if possible, but if not it's just one course.

Comment:
His midterm was terrible - had 17 unanswerable questions cause the graphs were missing so he took them all out which made all the other questions worth so much more. The final was also a mess - prof and TAs were disorganized and unprofessional and refused to answer questions. The material itself is okay but the profs and TAs were just a mess

DO NOT TAKE HIM - he does not reply to emails at all - both his midterm and final had extreme technical difficulties - reuses notes and instructions from the previous semester resulting in lots of confusion about the logistics fo assignments and exams - he has sent out the wrong notes on multiple occasions - unlearned material on some assignments

Comment:
The course itself was OK, but the real problem was the prof. He made 4 mistakes in his mid MC questions, decided to give one extra mark for everyone, but when the TA and I discovered 3 more mistakes, he refused to address the issue and did not want to discuss it with me, and I lost three valuable. He was also very rude to me because of it

Comment:
DO NOT TAKE THIS PROF! I basically just self study the whole semester while trying to figure out how to do question from other ppl's youtube videos. He just read off the slides on his ppt and didnt even explain the concept. His assignment are difficult and I have to spent like 10+ hours on it every week because he cant teach.

If you are good at teaching yourself off of youtube videos with no professor interaction this professor is for you. I had troubles understanding the concepts but clearly youtube does not reply to you when you ask a question. Professor was absent all semester long and refused to reply to emails over the term. I cant believe SFU allows such behaviour

I taught myself this course from his youtube videos that were recorded in May. Half the time I didn't know where the answers were coming from as he was not there to answer my questions. This course definitely requires more interaction but the way this prof does it he is never present on email or canvas or lectures. Go a different route.

This class is basically teaching yourself off of youtube videos. The professor is absent all semester long and refuses to reply to your emails. The TA Ben is also very arrogant and is useless as he does not make any sense. There is clear evidence the class cheats and has academic honesty issues. Choose a different Prof, this is not worth it!

Comment:
He doesn't teach. All the lectures are pre recorded from a few semesters ago. He literally just reads off the slides. It's so obvious that people cheat in the class. In-person 336 average was 63%, and and online the midterm average was 82%. How is this remotely fair? Embarrassed to be paying this much money for such poor quality of education.

Can you believe that for a math course, all assignments are required to be typed in Word instead of handwriting? This is ridiculous.

Liking him :) He is not tough and he is super patient to answer students' comments. He explains the lecture so detailed but you might find his teaching is kinda slow. Assignments are due every week .

He goes over everything really slowly and gives lots of examples in class. The exams aren't that hard but you have to watch out for the curve.

Overall pretty good. Bad things that were really annoying: - no criteria for assignments - never got the assignments back or grades (week 11 right now and nothing) - the TAs he has don't respond to emails - doesn't use Canvas

Very thick accent, and given that some of the content was complicated I found it pretty frustrating some days when it was difficult to fully understand him. Other than that, he's a nice guy. A few assignments, midterm was easy but the final was significantly more difficult and was worth most of your grade. So, study well in advance for that!

Great GPA boost! Hi weight on easy homework. Exams super easy because he always uses the same exams. Lectures unnecessary if you know his exam. I wish he taught more courses.
