Very passionate professors that writes out his lecture notes instead of using the textbook. Do a way better job at making theoretically messy concepts from the book more comprehensible. Overall his tests are fair, not easy but neither is all the material in the course. Really helpful in office hours, and homework accounts for 50% of the grade, which is nice!

Going from Vese's 151A to Deutsch, I thought things would get harder but I was totally wrong. This was the easiest class I ever took since high school. 50% of your grade is for weekly hws and luckily our TA explained every single question and often solved some of the questions for us. The midterm and final was super easy, similar to hws. If you plan on taking him for 151B just skip the lectures and read the book because it takes less time, you understand more, and you will end up with a better grade at the end.

The class is very good and straightforward! The tests are not too bad, and he grades way too generous. The homework is fun (you should go to discussion sections to learn Matlab!). You don't have to watch lectures to do well in this class since everything is in his notes. Overall, a very chill class during the pandemic, the only thing that I would slightly complain is the slow grading for the finals.

Overall, a pretty good experience. My favorite logistical thing about this class is that homework, midterm and final was graded SUPER fast (about a 24-72 hour return time). The material itself was pretty interesting (if you like numerical methods) but nothing special. We covered ODEs and some linear algebra. This is definitely one of those courses where you just do the homework (instead of really watching lectures) and learn as you go in my opinion. I never talked to the TA before but he seems like a swell dude (graded homework really fast). Same for the prof. If you worked with MATLAB before, this course will be even easier because there was at least one programming assignment on every homework. However, it isn't necessary, i rewrote most of the programs on Python and used those results and it was fine. The grading of this class is really lenient, 49% homework, 1% for teaching eval, 20% midterm and 30% final. Again, for me the homework was essentially a free 100% and the exams were pretty similar to the homework. The final was a bit harder than the midterm because there were True False questions that were hard to find in lecture notes but still doable. The average on the midterm was a 94% and we didn't get to see what mistakes we made on the final, though I got a 90%. Overall, a fairly easy course but definitely a bit harder than 151A
