MATH0122 with Mike Olinick8 days ago

Run while you can. Olinick is a nice old man, but he is not an effective educator. For most of the class, he is just lecturing to himself. He does not involve us, aside from the very occasional question posed to the class. There is NO group work at all during class. You very likely won't even learn the names of your peers. Which is very unfortunate because solving problems together is very useful for everyone. There is daily homework, but it doesn't count towards your grade. 90% of your grade is based on exams, with 10% on group projects. But, if you are tempted to not do your homework -- you aren't going to pass this class. And homework is such a drag. It has to be done on pen and paper, and cannot be submitted online. You have to read Olinick's textbook to do it -- which I strongly dislike. Stewart Calculus is a far better textbook. His exams are untimed (except for the final), and you can bring a cheat sheet. But, he is a tough grader. Do the study sheet beforehand, because the tests are very similar. Don't take this class unless you have to.

This is a tough class, mike is a little bit tricky to understandd. lectures are not always clear and concise. explanations in class might be tricky, the class moves fast and homework is intense so you might have to frequent office hours.

MATH0116 with Alex Lyford10 days ago

Alex had a different level of enthusiasm for teaching this course that made the semester very enjoyable. He made himself available to his students as much as possible and always offered time outside of class to go over problem sets. The workload was consistently manageable and I strongly recommend this course for anybody who has potential interest early on in the field of statistics.
