Comment:
Professor Feldman is absolutely brilliant and cares a lot about his students. His lectures are fun and he goes through each problem slowly step by step, so it's very easy to follow. He is super approachable and helpful in office hours, welcomes anyone, and after you'd magically understand everything. He prepares his students well for the final!

He is a rockstar. Too bad he is retiring. Assignments were very hard and the exam was not easy either. Such a great teacher - this course was a great challenge.

Amazing lecturer! Goes through material slowly and carefully, I found him to be super clear. His notes are great too. Assignments are very, very intense and exams are pretty difficult. Joel is incredibly helpful in office hours, definitely seek help there. I didn't get a good grade but I learnt a lot, would take again! He made 321 fun.

Very clear and thorough professor but his notes are straight out of the textbook. You should expect that all the examples done in class match the CLP notes exactly.

Hands down the most caring prof I have ever met. Unlimited office hours, as long as he is at UBC, his door will be open, and whenever his door is open, you can feel free to go in and chat.

Great, professor, his exams may be a bit difficult if you don't put enough work into preparing for them. His notes are excellent and very useful, if you work all the way through them. I did better in Integral than I did in Differential just because of how good this class was with him.

Extremely qualified and brilliant mathematician and prof. I cannot sing enough praises for Feldman. His lectures thoroughly cover the material and his notes are extremely useful. Quizzes and exams are reasonable based on material content but not necessarily easy. Always available for office hours and questions.

Brilliant mind. His in class quizzes are really hard. His lectures don't stand out and his online notes are superfluous when you have the textbook. But he is a GOD when you visit him during office hours. He explains questions perfectly with the perfect number of steps that'll give you epiphanies everytime. He just gets your confusions and problems.

Absolute best prof I've had. Explains everything clearly and rarely needs to explain himself twice. If needed, he will help you understand whatever you need during his office hours. Brilliant.

If you don't have a pre-understanding of the material there's a good chance you'd be lost.

I am fron economics background and took two of his courses, Math 320 and 321. He's one of the three best professors I've ever had. I even spent one night to write a letter to norminate him for the Killam teaching award. Later I found out he had already won one. If he's teaching and the course is related to your field, you should definitely take it.

Comment:
The best math professor I've ever had. He is very clear, thorough, and helpful. He expects a lot, but he also teaches extremely well, so I think he's entitled. He definitely knows his stuff, and I think you'd be hard pressed to find math that he doesn't know. I'm pretty sure that if Chuck Norris taught math, he'd be Joel Feldman.
