Patrick is the best professor I've ever had! I've only got to experience his classes for my 2 online semesters (2020 - 2021), and he's been better than instructors I've had in-person! Very thorough, always open to questions, has very clear and helpful explainations, as well as being hilarious and making the classes fun! Take his class if you can!��

I never enjoyed math classes before Professor Ng. He honestly made it fun though. And of all the classes I took that year, I felt like he did the best with the online components, marking the fastest and giving clear expectations as to what he wanted from us. There's a quiz every Thursday, just 4ish questions, then 3 midterms which are like 20qs.

I took first year calculus with Patrick 17 years ago. After close to a decade in post secondary since then, few profs stand out as much as Patrick Ng to me. I'm not good with names. I met my wife there, and to this day we both still make jokes about solving problems with graphing calculators. He just cared, and made hard things funny.

Patrick is by far one of the best profs. He wants his students to succeed and always is there to help if needed. Made math not so horrible for someone who has never liked or done well with math!

Patrick is both informative and engaging, so he always has your attention. When new material is introduced he makes it memorable with terminology/mnemonics, many examples which show not just how to do it but why + what it means, and funny stories. Despite my C grade, I still think hes a great teacher- proven by retaking 121 w/ a diff professor.

I really enjoyed Patrick's class. there are weekly quizzes, three midterms and a final, but it's not as bad as it sounds. If you come to class and do the homework you will do great! Don't be afraid to ask questions. Patrick is easily the best math prof out there, if you have the chance, go with him!

Great teacher and hilarious. If you are great in math you will fly through but if you dont do well you will have to work for it and might have to get a tutor. Entertaining guy, I even considered talking another course even though I dont do well in math!

Patrick is by far one of the best math teachers i have ever had. He's hilarious which makes the class easy to sit through. His tests are a bit difficult but the questions are fair. Lots of quizzes and exams though, so if you don't do the homework, you might not pass. Would definitely recommend him to anyone.

Patrick has done the impossible by making math lectures hilarious and engaging. He respects the students that show up and make an effort. Always very friendly and welcoming to questions at office hours. Homework and pop quizzes are a part of the criteria so attendance is a must, and warning he is a tough grader to say the least.

Came into calculus very nervous after not having a solid math background but Patrick did a great job making it accessible. He strongly reinforces understanding the material and does a great job of explaining the content. He's engaging and makes funny jokes the entire time and I always feel like he genuinely cares about each student. Tests are fair.

Patrick has been my #1 favourite prof since the first week of my first class with him. He is incredibly caring, and genuinely wants to see his students succeed. He can be found roaming the math building, checking up on all of his students, always available to help in any way possible. He also has a very effective teaching style.
