Linear Algebra Student​

I enjoyed the fact that we did quiz together as a class. It really helped see from other people’s points of view on how to solve the problems. Mr. Smith is tough but I’ve had him for several classes and always enjoyed him as a teacher.

I think this teacher is great. Prof. Smith reminds you of previous topics and connects them to new ones when starting new material. Explains topics in depth in a fast paced way. His lectures are very prepared and planned out. He does a good job leaving theorems and definitions on the board to refer back to during an example problem. Quizzes and tests were fair; nothing that wasn’t covered in homework or notes.
