    Andrew's lessons cover the material you need to know and adds a little historical background as well. He is a hard marker, with killer midterms, but scaling will get you to about the same regardless of the class you're in. He's sarcastic and snarky, but in a way that shames you into doing the work. Put effort in the class and you'll be fine. ...Continue reading

    Dr. Ghioca has very engaging lectures, is hilarious, and provides very comprehensive examples. It is also clear he is a mathematical genius, and he has fantastic office hours. He is committed to his students, and will stay after his posted office hours in order to explain exam questions to confused students. His energy will make everyone love math! ...Continue reading

    Overall, he is your decent prof. I mean, I hated physics, so it was really hard for me to get into it. His explanations are clear if you can listen in class. Since my lecture was held in the Hebb 100, there was a lot of noise and distractions. I suggest you taking notes if you struggle with physics because the midterm and final are open book. ...Continue reading
