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 is a really nice guy and funny. The class itself sucks, but he does his best to help you understand it. GO TO CLASS! Attendance is not required but with it being such a small class, he notices who is there & who isn't. He will reward you in the end. He will make sure to pass you if you do all of the required work & show up to class. There is a curve at the END of the semester. You have weekly homeworks to turn in. There are many HARD proofs on the homework, but the proofs on the tests are easier. You have about 14 homeworks (15% of your grade) throughout the semester, but he ended up dropping our 4 worst grades, which was really nice!!! There are 2 tests (25% each) & then the final(35%). |
||

M 341 Linear Algebra And Matrix Thry
He is great at using metaphors to explain the material, has an awesome personality, and there should be more teachers like him. |
||

M 341 Linear Algebra And Matrix Thry
Heitmann is an excellent M341 Linear Algebra teacher. I can't imagine the class getting easier than it already is. The class starts off very easy but quickly jumps to asking you to write rigorous proofs. If you have never done this, it can be difficult to learn, but whenever I had problems with a proof I always got help during office hours. I recommend going to class and offic hours because he will definitely recognize you and reward you for your effort and interest in the class. Dr. Heitmann has even been helpful in helping me with math problems unrelated to the class and has gone out of his way to help me with things like choosing classes. All in all he is a great guy.rnrnTL;DR: Go to class and if you have trouble go to office hours. The tests are very straightforward, and he doesn't ask you to prove anything difficult on the tests or anything you haven't seen before. Some of the proofs encountered in the class are long and tedious, but he never asks you to do those on the test. |

M 341 Linear Algebra And Matrix Thry
Dr. Bormashenko is an amazingly dedicated professor! Her teaching style incorporates both lecture and in-class, self work that greatly helps solidify new and mind-boggling concepts. Her homework load is very manageable and useful in ensuring a good grasp of the concepts learned. If one takes the time to ask questions and/or attend Office Hours, Dr. Bormashenko truly does a magnificent job in making difficult and intimidating concepts seem a lot less intimidating and can greatly help untangle most of one's confusion. Dr. Bormanshenko is by far the best professor I have ever had! She has never failed to go above and beyond to help me attain a much better grasp in confusing/unique concepts. I strongly recommend Dr. Bormanshenko to those who are enthusiastic and keen to learn. |
||

M 341 Linear Algebra And Matrix Thry
Great professor! She very thoroughly explained the material, and let us do a lot of the work on our own, which helped solidify the concepts, by us using applications immediately. Great introdction to Linear Algebra |

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. |

M 341 Linear Algebra And Matrix Thry
Dr. Blumberg is a great professor. He has horrible handwriting, but if you ask him what he wrote, he'll tell you or write it neater. He seems very knowledgeable about linear algebra, and you can tell he is genuinely interested in the subject. There were two exams, homework, and a final. Neither exam was dropped, but he gives a curve. The exams are 5 or 6 free response problems with some proofs and some computational stuff. His tests are relatively easy if you study and take the time to understand the material, and he is always available for help through email, office hours, and appointments. I was dreading linear algebra because everyone says how hard it is, but this is my favorite class! |

M 341 Linear Algebra And Matrix Thry
Ronny Hadani is a fantastic professor. He is extremely enthusiastic about his lessons and always comes prepared with a complete lecture full of theorems, proofs, and examples demonstrating those theorems. Furthermore, he is always mindful of whether the class understands certain concepts. In terms of grading, it's quite obvious that he's fair, and even somewhat liberal, with point allocation. |

He put in a huge amount of time helping me understand proof-writing techniques and how to think logically and write proofs concisely. He was attentive and thorough about answering all of the questions/concerns I brought to him. In my experience as a student, he is at the top of the list in terms of professors I've encountered who are willing to invest time in their students. He's also very approachable in general and easy to talk to. |

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. |

This is the kind of class where if you go to class, and do the homework, you will do fine. Dr. Meth is always willing to help, and if you just go to class you will easily learn the material. Hands down one of the best professors I've had |

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
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. |
