Comment:
I absolutely hated this teacher. He would just read the notes during class. He made the material so boring. The assignments and the midterms were not distributed equally. His midterms and exam question were nothing like the examples in class and he taught us more things than other classes learned. NEVER AGAIN. Don't recommend. Avoid at all matters.

Comment:
You have to teach yourself the whole course. He is hard to understand and just reads off of a word document the whole semester. However, tests and midterms were fair and he provides lots of good homework questions. In that way, if you are very independent then it won't be that bad. Lacks teaching ability.

Comment:
Aside from my understandable lack of understanding of the lectures due to the heavy accent, Professor Weixuan Li has not made an acceptable transition to online learning. Every lecture he read from cramped notes and no practise questions were done in the lecture either. I basically had to teach myself the entire course through youtube.

I really liked Dr. Li! I found his practice tests were so similar the exams, he also gave out helpful notes. Do the practice tests until you understand the material and you'll get a good grade for sure. Calc is tough in general but he is a good, caring prof and willing to help. He also graded our finals really fast for a big class! Woud recommend

Professor Li provided super detailed notes and practice questions that were very similar to the midterms and exams. As long as you do the practice questions and DGD materials you'll do great!

Exams have subjects that are never seen on any assignments/review exercises. The overall teacher does not teach anything, personally, I learned everything from Organic chemistry and not from WeiXuan.

Comment:
Prof Li can be difficult to understand at times but genuinely cares for his students. If you are strong in math, you will have no problem with this course. Do the homework and assignments. If you are a visual learner, do NOT take this course online because he tends to read directly from his notes rather than write out the solutions to the problems.

Prof does lots of examples during class without explaining what we are doing. You have to teach yourself most of the course content. He posts review questions before midterms and the final exam, which reflect test questions.

The guy needs to take ENG 1001 before he can teach a university math. His midterms are confusing and his sample packets do not match to the material on the final exam. Avoid at all costs.

Weixuan is not a very good prof at all. His accent is hard to understand and he explains everything poorly (does not say WHY, only gives the steps). If you try to ask questions, he does a bad job of answering them. Be warned, the midterms were fair, but the final was way harder than any past finals that I had seen.

Show up to class, sit at the front (strong accent) and take advantage of the practice questions he posts. The man will grow on you very quick and you'll see how passionate and talented he is in calculus. He wants you to succeed but only if you work for it - which is the right way. For the Chinese, feel free to spark conversation in your language!

Difficult to understand, doesn't really teach well, just goes through exercises. Mid-terms are out of very few questions. Had a terrible time. Studied very hard and still got a bad mark.

Comment:
He is completely clueless about teaching. He is extremely difficult to understand and does not explain what he is doing or why he is doing it. He just reads what he is writing on the board without explaining anything. Avoid at all costs. You will need to seek out external resources to learn the material on your own. The free PDF textbook is awful.

It's my second time to take his course, his exams are super hard and you have to practice and remember various question types then you can get good grade. Don't take his course, you'd better to try other profs'.

Worst Professor I have ever taken. His accent is hard to understand, but I tried not to judge him for that, however, he still sucks. He can't teach whatsoever. He speeds through questions, doesn't explain anything that he's doing and sometimes even confuses himself. If he's the only prof available you're better off taking the course another time

Accent is hard to understand and can go through Q's too fast in lecture. However he posts all his notes online. Midterms were challenging but the final was fair and similar to previous years. Do all the textbook problems and attend DGD's, I personally skipped most lectures. You'll have to do a fair bit of self teaching but overall it's fine.

Be ready to study on your own. Absolutely useless prof as he speeds through questions without explaining. Good luck.
