M 341 Linear Algebra And Matrix Thry
Dr. Sofer is a wonderful expositor of Mathematics. Attendance is never required, yet our class was always near full in attendance. Her lectures are very helpful. Some previous posters have complained about her accent but I never had any trouble understanding her. She has 3 hours of office hours per week, and gives an additional set of hours the week of each test. Her tests are fair. She drops 2 homeworks and 1 test. |

M 341 Linear Algebra And Matrix Thry
I really enjoyed Sofer's class. She is very friendly and personable and she is well prepared when teaching. She has her notes written up beforehand and uses them to teach. She does a very good job of explaining so if you don't understand something while she is teaching she will go over it again. She grades as follows 20% for homework, 25% midterm 1, 25% midterm 2, and 30% final. I think that if you don't miss class and see the TA over the homework you will be able to get an A. Our TA would do all the homework problems for you if you asked so that is a good way to get a 100 on your homework assignment. I don't think that you have to be a math wiz to make an A in her class. You just need to go to all the classes and go to the TA's office hours when you need help or to check over the homework. It's real simple |

M 341 Linear Algebra And Matrix Thry
She does examples for every type of problem in the homework, which makes that a lot easier. She's always available to her students, even if you can't make office hours. |
||

M 341 Linear Algebra And Matrix Thry
She explained M 341 really thoroughly and made it pretty simple. Gave homework once a week, and graded everything promptly. always answers questions thoroughly so no one is confused. |

M 341 Linear Algebra And Matrix Thry
Great teacher; she is very friendly, approachable and explains things very well. Although it can sometimes be a bit slow, she often goes through examples and repeats a lot of things, which is great for learning the material in the class. In our semester, we did not have a TA or grader, so we had to have a lot of online and in-class quizes, which was a good way to have the students keep up with the material, as well as make the test and final weigh less in our grade. She seems very enthusiastic about what she teaches and knows a lot on the subject. Her quizes and tests are very easy. |

M 341 Linear Algebra And Matrix Thry
She's the nicest prof ever. She taught the material really well and wanted her students to learn. She'll help you with anything during office hours and if you can't make those, then she'll find a way to meet you when you can. I enjoyed Linear Algebra and especially her. If you have a chance to take Dr. Gonzalez, do it! She's young but very smart and you can tell she enjoys teaching. The class had homework every week, 2 midterms and a final. If you understand the homework then you'll do fine, if you don't, go talk to her and she'll explain it so that you do. She gives partial credit on homework and exams so that every one does well. |
||

M 341 Linear Algebra And Matrix Thry
A very well structured class. Dr Gonzalez does a great job presenting the material in a comprehensible fashion. Everything is straight from the book, but she does not just repeat the rule and not explain what it means. Easy homeworks and very straightforward tests. |
||

M 341 Linear Algebra And Matrix Thry
Mar explaines everything very well. She is concerned with the progress of her students and gives many hints before an exam of what is to be expected on an exam. Her notes in class are very clear and will sometimes do the homework problems on the board if everyone seems to be having issues with it. She is a really nice professor and i would recommend anyone to take her for anything that she teaches! |

M 341 Linear Algebra And Matrix Thry
Funny and made you want to be in class. She explains everything pretty well. |

M 341 Linear Algebra And Matrix Thry
He's the most inspiring professor I've had. (I'm only a sophomore, but still...) He really knows what he's talking about, and the best part is he LOVES the subject! He sometimes goes off into more detail than necessary, but I enjoyed it. But overall, I really enjoyed his class and look forward to pursuing a career similar to his. |

M 341 Linear Algebra And Matrix Thry
He was organized and tried to follow the book and use the same notation. He explained stuff well in class. Attending class wasn't required BUT it was good if you did show up since he would say stuff during lecture and clarify misconceptions in class. Tests consisted of homework problems that had already been assigned but there was one problem that you had never seen but it wasn't too bad. Graded and returned tests the next day. At the end of the semester he let students correct 1 problem and get up to half the number of points they had missed on a test. |

M 341 Linear Algebra And Matrix Thry
Lectures were usually very clear and concise. The proofs presented were neither trivial nor obscure; he struck a pretty good balance. Tests were usually pretty fair and could have been much more difficult if he emphasized proof more.The homework was usually pretty helpful and relevant to the tests. He was always willing to go over homework problems at the beginning of each class. |

M 341 Linear Algebra And Matrix Thry
I don't understand where all the reviews that accuse him of being arrogant/snide are coming from. He was pretty solicitous and patient when he lectured in our class, and paused after every other line pretty much to turn around and ask if we understood it, even if it was a relatively simple concept. Most professors I've had in harder courses don't do that for topics that AREN'T obvious. If no one spoke up, then whose fault is that if you still don't understand it?If you go to office hours, he will address any question you can think of and is willing to extend office hours for absurdly long durations (usually because he loses track of the time- the last office hour before the final exam ended up lasting until 8:30 PM, when his normal office hours are 4-5 PM). Knows his stuff, and is very approachable. His tests, straying from the homework, are pretty straightforward and cover the most basic aspects of the major topics. Our class's mean for the first exam was like a 85%. The second was in the high 70's. Homework is hard, but if you come into office hours, he'll go through the homework with you. He also drops two homeworks. Unlike most people who were in my class, I had never taken discrete math (which teaches you the structure of proof-writing, which is important for this class), nor had I retaken this class before and I ended up with an A. There's a pretty strong correlation between how much effort you but in this class and how well you do. |
