Subject are bad and so is his method of teaching. Somehow he says the same thing for hours on end and still manages to miss the point.

Comment:
His lecture style is of a science teacher, straight from the powerpoint rarely with examples, which is the detriment of an engineering course. It becomes a chore to go to class and pay attention, and his homeworks are usually confusing and hard. That being said, with some preparation with 3rd party sources, and etc, his tests aren't that hard.

Comment:
Terrible Professor. Lectures are horrifically boring with endless slides of useless derivations and formulas. Gives no examples, no test review and extremely difficult homework. The man is a condescending professor not a teacher, he shows no care for his students learning experience.

Comment:
He is the most unorganized lecturer I have ever seen. By unorganized I mean his notes are completely out of order; has unnecessary information that will definitely make you cry the night before your exam. His notes are just powerpoint slides full of EXTREMELY confusing formulas and notations that you DO NOT need at all. He is demeaning and annoying

He clarify everything in the class, he is really smart and by the way good speaker as well. HW are a little tough and grading is good, they need a little knowledge in MATLAB programming

Comment:
Not a bad professor. A bit arrogant at times, but explains material well enough, and tests are easy enough. Homeworks are lengthy but not difficult. Only complaint is he missed about 10 lectures while at conferences...not easy for the students when it's a constant rotation between him, a non-English speaking TA, and another professor.

Comment:
Does not follow syllabus, changes his grading policies as he goes without informing students. Intentionally tries to trick students makes you feel stupid and does not help students even when they ask after class or go to office hours. You are apparently supposed to be proficient in Linear algebra and MATlab although they are not prerequisites.

If you're going to take Math Meth in Robotics, be sure to know linear algebra and MATLAB, and take 412 beforehand. Only explained concepts. Hardly ever gave examples. Regularly overran class dismissal time. Small class size and no TA limits help available.
