(taken a year ago) Very helpful, no surprises on tests, lenient grading. If you get a poor grade in any of his classes you probably weren't even trying.

Probably one of the best professors I've ever had. Excellent explanations and fair assignments/tests. Sure, it's a difficult class, but he makes it so easy to understand.

This guy must have turned a leaf. In 2008, he was the worst instructor and now that I have graduated from the Math Department, he is still the worst. 1 of 2 instructor's that I was completely unsatisfied with. Explanations of questions sound about like, "Well... that is just how it is." He had a …more PhD student sub and the student blew him away. less

Class is fun, he talks about things not on the textbook. But slides are not good quality, copy from wiki. You have to read the book because sometimes he put the wrong stuff on the slide.

The GOOD: Can give pts back on exams if he's in a good mood. The BAD: An entirely unreasonable prof. Changed the grades/grading scale multiple times after the final to screw the class over. HW is a USELESS study tool for exams. Very diff. class already, & the prof made it impossible. OVERALL GRADE: …more N/A To give this prof an F- would be a compliment. less

The prof. feels egocentrism & he doesn't care much of the students' feeling. He like to show he is the smartest and enjoy to boast his experience in some famous labs, and he claims the students are not working-hard enough or not smart enough if they can't get passed. Actually it's partly due to …more his preparation is unserious and poor teaching skill. less

Dr. Xie is a good one. He cares about what the students actually learn and try his best to clarify and simplify this hard topic: Heat and Mass Transfer. There will be a lot of homework, tough quiz, but the tests are not that difficult. In all, it's definitely not an easy course, but you can learn …more a lot from him. less

In his lectures, all he does is solve problems in class without giving much theoretical explanations, and after class he gives closed book quizzes that are theoretical. He talks to the computer rather than talking to the entire class. He also doesn't seem to understand that his students also have …more other classes that they need to study for. less

One of the worst professors in the entire department. His lectures are pointless. I'd highly recommend using youtube to find better lectures and do as many problems as you can. He doesn't care about students learning and will inaudibly write scribbles on the board every single lecture.
