Really fair and changes up grading to be fair to everyone. He gave us options to how much we wanted out final exam and midterm to be worth. Nice guy.

Not good at explaining how he does things initially. But as you get into the semester you get more and more used to things. Sometimes sends out some drama-queen material in emails that are fun to laugh at.

Comment:
Dr. Elsabrouty is a fantastic professor. Many students claim he is unhelpful and his course is impossible but as long as you use his lecture notes and DO THE LABS you will be fine. Most of the exam questions are pulled straight from the labs. His communication takes some getting used to but if you have a sense of humor you will enjoy his emails.

I found the course expectations very unclear at the start. A lot of ways to teach yourself were offered but it was very challenging to get help. His emails were extremely rude. Midterm and especially final were not reflective of the assignments. Stay on top of your work or you will do poorly.

Comment:
Dr. Elsabrouty is a great professor. His notes were very helpful and concise, and made concepts make sense right away. The class in general was a little hard to keep up with, as it was asynchronous, but the difficulty of the class is independent of Dr. Elsabrouty's performance as a professor.

I don't know about the hatred from first year Math 275, I have taken Math 275, 277 and this year's 413 with Dr. Elsabrouty. He is always a gem and as long as you follow his notes and do what he tells you to do to succeed in this course, you can get an A easily. I don't think there is a better alternative who has clearer instruction than him.

This was an awful class to start my first year with, he was awful at responding to emails and when he did it was passive aggressive and not any help whatsoever. He threw his students into the deep end and expected us to know what to do each week (as there was no interactive classes only recordings) and we had to teach ourselves. He did not teach us

He really told us, here's the notes for each week, have fun learning, here are the test dates and the online resources. There was no lectures in the class, I still don't know what he looks like because he doesn't even teach the online resources, they're done by another prof. Every email is so snarky, I'm right you're wrong mentality.

Very aggressive in his emails and would never reply to students. Didnt post any final review for practice, and he never did any review for students but yet he made the tests. Absolute joke of a class

Elsa is an okay prof. I had him for math 275, however he barely gave us any assessments and expected us to be prepared for the final and midterm. In addition to that he is HORRIBLE at answering emails and expects us to be on top of our game. Some advice be self sufficient and expect the unexpected.

I wish we got the Prof that previous year students have gotten. All he did for us this semester was write aggressive emails and make exams that were straight up dumb. The class consisted of prerecorded videos and assignments done on pearson (horrible website). Would have been much better if lectures were live. Thanks to all

Weekly notes and lab solutions are very detailed and clear which makes it easier since it is online. Most of his emails are a little aggressive but everyone should know by now that if you want clarifications, you should email hamilton or post it in the discussion board where hamilton also will nicely reply

The best professor in terms of teaching his notes is just lovely and colour-coding makes it even much better. Helped me a lot outside of classes.
