Comment:
Dr. Boghosian is maybe the best professor to walk this Earth. I signed up for his course not for sure what to expect, but to my surprise, I learned more than I could have imagined in 8 weeks. If you are looking for a class to take this is definitely the one. You will love Dr. Boghosian and the material he teaches.

Comment:
Good lecturer. Tendency to get bogged down in the abstract instead of using concrete examples. Don't take this specific class without prior experience in 100-level math. One day he wore denim on denim to class and it redefined style for me.

Prof. Boghosian is an amazing human being and a great person. He truly wants his students to understand the material and goes out of his way to do this. You can see his passion for wealth inequality (this course), math in general and the history of it. Very knowledgeable and will help you in any means possible for you to understand.

Comment:
He's such a Dad. Once told us about his passion for woodworking. Guy is a genius though and does a pretty job of explaining the material. If you like concrete math like calculus this may not be the best choice because it's econ heavy and can get complex and abstract. Clearly just wants people to understand the material. Great professor.

Absolutely amazing. Best math professor/class in my life so far. Inspirational. Teaching-wise, he's very clear-cut and succinct. Will clarify concepts as much as you need. Accessible by email and office hours. Very helpful

Comment:
He is an amazing lecturer. Things that I learned in his nonlinear PDE class are still useful for my research after years. He is extremely helpful and very nice in interacting with the students. The home works are heavy but that is basically the nature of the course and the only way to learn the material. I rate him as the best professor I've had.

Comment:
(Same as CS22) He is a wonderful teacher that goes over the homework before it's due and is extremely helpful in office hours. He's more interested in you understanding the material than getting everything correct, so the homework is really hard but the tests aren't bad. Lectures / material a bit boring but he makes it a bit more interesting.

Comment:
Not the most interesting class, material wise. Can be VERY dense at times consisting of just proving theorems. Boghosian does his best to make it interesting but it's not great. Homework once a week that can be pretty challenging. Class and office hours are useful for that. Exams are a cake walk compared to HW. 1 midterm and 1 final.

Comment:
Prof. Boghosian is a wonderful professor and a brilliant man but Math 151 is ridiculously difficult. He teaches well, but the subject matter is abstract at times and requires a lot of work to understand. The homework was terribly long, complicated, and difficult. The tests were hard but fair. Great class if you’re willing to put the effort into it.

Good professor. Material is extremely difficult towards the middle and end of the semester. Although the book was marginal, Prof Boghosian made what could have been a nightmare manageable.
