Comment:
Very harsh grader if you do not have the exact way he does it then it is wrong. Anything that goes against how he is feeling that day he is grading is marked off would not recommend. Is extremely passive aggressive and give lectures and speaks in a condescending tone. Avoid if possible. Avoid the whole math department at OU if you can.

Comment:
Professor Cheng is a pretty nice guy. Discrete Math is a rough subject, and I had a hard time with it. Eddies teaching style was certainly not my favorite, but when I approached him for help, he was there. If you take Eddie, youre going to struggle at least a little bit, but ask for help and it WILL be there.

Comment:
Professor Cheng was very passive aggressive when students would do bad on tests. Myself and many other students found it hard to do well on tests, and he would then send out an email telling us that we were the problem and not him. If you don't study every lecture video covered on the test you won't pass. He has a heavy accent and goes very quickly

Great professor for online classes, he somehow managed to make lectures about mathematical proofs interesting. Highly recommended for APM 2663. Its a tough class but he really cares about the students and wants them to pass.

Overall a fine class. Lectures were for 2 hours and very fast pace. Only things graded were two exams, two quizzes and a final. If you're not a good test taker fine a different class because tests are graded strict. Has a heavy accent and can be hard to understand.

Dr. Cheng is amazing! I appreciate his way of lecturing by doing a ton of examples and book work together. He really wants you to understand the material, so speak up if you are struggling. He does a good job preparing students for tests/quizzes & even specifically mentions questions that will be on assessments. Study the lecture notes!! :)

This class was the most difficult I have taken but certainly not because of Eddie. The material is super hard and he goes over it fast but bc there is so much to cover. Very funny and helps students until they understand. Answers Qs thoroughly. Final exam featured material students performed better on. Almost no HW, its on you to practice yourself

Comment:
The subject was brutal for me, but fortunately, Prof Cheng wasn't the reason it was difficult. He is incredibly passionate about teaching and the subject and will always be willing to answer questions. He is incredibly strict during quizzes and exams (at least online), but that easily dismissed. He keeps lectures engaging which was helps you focus.

GREAT human and GREAT professor. He is a math wizard and a comedian. He made Discrete Math, a very hard class, enjoyable. I wish I had the opportunity to meet him in person. Take this professor, he literally tells you what will be on the exam. He even went out of his way to congratulate me on my grade. May take him for Linear Algebra. I RECOMMEND

Definitely not an easy class, but he is a good professor. Pay attention to all lectures or you will fall behind. Grade is based on 2 quizzes, 2 exams, and a final. Bonus points given for participation. Gives many chances to redeem yourself and your grade. Gives homework problems, not mandatory nor graded, but impossible to do well without practice

Take this class with this professor if you have the chance, he explains and does many exercises and examples comparable to the exam. I really feel I didn't waste my time taking this class. A balanced professor from whom I learned a lot.

This professor truly makes learning fun and is one of the best math profs. He is very knowledgable and works with the class to ensure that we are following along and understanding. He makes class fun and will let you know what type of problems he may include in exams so that you can study appropriately. I would 100% take him again.

Professor Cheng is an amazing person. He made a class that I failed at another institution bearable, while also doing everything in his power to help us students. He is one of the good ones. He regularly will go out of his way to help his students succeed, even personally explaining concepts to you at 8 PM. Future students, DO THE PRACTICE EXAMS!!!

Really funny guy, keeps class interesting but if math isn't your thing then you will not enjoy this class. The quizzes and tests were not easy and he did not curve. He gave bonus check marks throughout the semester but I did not see them in my final grade so I don't know how those helped.

I have never witnessed better lectures; he has the ability to make the most difficult material make sense. He keeps lectures upbeat and interesting with his humor. He is very accessible outside of class too. Participate! He doesn't make you feel bad for not understanding something and you will only learn.

He was a nice guy and is willing to work with you and wants you to succeed. I personally struggled with his teaching style. He had us do a lot of examples in class, but I prefer a more solid outline of notes to be given. He does offer office hours, emails, etc. And is willing to help!

Oh what can I say, Mr. Cheng is a trouble maker. He knows his subject, will make you work for it but does not make it complicated. It's mostly about memorization, so if you practice well you will be fine.

Eddie is one of the best professors I have had. There are countless things he does that show he has put a lot of thought into teaching. He can also explain anything in at least 3 different ways. I have had him twice now and would take him again if given the opportunity.

Probably one of my favorite professors ever. It's amazing witnessing his lectures - you can clearly see his passion for the subject. Discrete Math is a hard class but he makes it easy with his clear lectures and formulaic tests. Seriously. He tells you what problems will be on the test in some form or another. Inspirational.
