Comment:
I can't understand why UW keeps giving us profs that can't teach. Unless you're extremely smart and can keep up with this guy then just avoid him. Even if you put in all your time you might still not do well because he actually isn't a lot of help and his lectures are AWFUL. Seriously retire because students need better profs than this.

His lectures are very unclear. Doesn't seem very helpful and caring about making sure his students get the best grade they can. Exams and assignments are very hard. Explanations are lacking and confusing, disorganized.

Comment:
Terribly disorganized notes. Lots of hand waving. Upon further inspection, some of his algebra is actually wrong and he just gives the correct answer. Generally a poor match for the course. Also, he does not understand that for assignments, there is no time crunch. Therefore lower performance on tests/exams does not equate cheating on assignments.

He loves keeping student overtime, every class. He gets lots of fun being a mean marker, he will give you marks as low as possible. Do not try to argue with him, you won't get a happy ending.

Worst prof ever! Unclear lectures in a very slow speed. Always teach materials for the assignment on the due day. Writing is always disordered, don't know what he is talking about!

Comment:
I'd prefer if he taught a little bit faster. Everything he does seems so slow. I dropped in on a different class where the teacher taught extremely fast and I would say Cheriyan was the better of the two, but if you take in how little he covers in one class, it is kind of off putting. He does seem like he cares a lot for the students however.

Comment:
His note is very clear. He is also very patient and helpful in his office hour. Some ppl states that he has a bad temper but anyone knows why. He loses temper bez some students talk loud in class and influence others. His lectures are well organized and assignments are good. He is a very responsible teacher and exam, even the final is very fair

Comment:
Joseph really cares about his students. He is always willing to help. However, his teaching needs improvement in terms of clarity and organization. Go to his office hours and get help from outside of class. You will like him and the class a lot more if you reach out outside of class.

I thought his teaching was good. He may not give the impression that he cares about his students, but he does want you to do well. He gives very good geometric explanations and made this course pretty clear.
