Comment:
The grading scheme was very unforgiving. We were graded by 19 minute weekly quizzes that were worth 70% of our total grade and the rest was by projects. Jarek is an okay lecturer. He held no office hours and only held a live class once a week. The material done in class did not prepare us well for the quizzes. Avoid online classes with him!

Comment:
Not the best lecturer since he rushed a lot. However, he did narrow down a lot of material which made it easier to study. There were 3 tests, and the nice thing about them was that you didn't need to show much work. Test questions came from homework assignments, so do them. Final exam was long but it was all multiple choice. He's alright.

He gives a lot of examples is class, i don't even pay attention to the slides i just pay attention to the examples and if you are able to do the examples from class you can do well on the midterm and the assignments are straight forward and are also grade boosters the final is multiple choice which is kind of difficult.

Comment:
I dont really understand why he has a good rating here. His slides are abstract and confusing. In the midterm he put questions which were pretty much impossible to do with the material he gave us. Also he is lazy af. It feels like he rushes content so he can go home asap. Lastly, he has some attitudes which makes you not wanna ask any questions.

He WAS a great professor. But this term he changed a lot. Giving unclear outdated notes, misleading content, very unprepared lecture. I heard many friends who took his course. They said that he changed.

Professor Gryz is very good. He doesn't screw around in lecture and he gets to the point. He constantly encourages students to ask questions and he spends a lot of time doing problems in class. This really goes a long way to help prepare for the tests, which are generally fair, but you still need to study for them.

Good at taking questions. Explains things clearly. Slight Polish accent. Good sense of humour. Tests are no joke, study. Every week after the test, you're going to hear something like: "The class average was 20%."

Great prof, takes the time to go through multiple examples and explains things as often as needed. Took EECS/MATH 1019 with him, so happy I did. A+ final grade, finished exam with 1-1.5 hours left to review. Just wish he taught more 1st or 2nd year courses.

Fairly knowledgeable. Doesn't like stupid questions, so make sure you do the homework and read the textbook if you are not clear on the pre-lecture material. Exam was entirely multiple choice (very easy) to make up for poor grading on tests (by TAs, mind you).

He's a good prof bec he sees to it that his class understand the course material and would always want us to ask him questions esp. if he feels that the class doesn't understand the concepts. With a good amount of effort you can put into his course, you can easily get an A or A+. I recommend seeing him during his office hrs

I took a discrete math class with him, however, most of the classes were fun, takes care of students (you should go to his office hours). The course were hard, he made it easier and funnier. If it is mandatory for you to take a math class, just take it with him.

Definitely one of the best professors to teach EECS 1019 considering the rest are pretty garbage. I highly recommend taking a course with him. An A is definitely possible if you put a little effort.

Comment:
The best prof u can take this course with! He is very nice and helpful. His explanation is very clear, and you dont have to go through the book cz if u attend class u'll leave with everything in your head. His tests and exams are fair too. HE IS PERFECT! my advice: attend ALL his lectures and do ALL the homework and u'll get an easy A or A+ :)
