He is a terrible professor. If you ever meet him, he is a typical arrogant snob from an Ivy League. I've seen him mock students from state universities. Bigtime jerk.

His accent was difficult to understand sometimes but if you just follow his notes on the board, you usually understand what he is trying to convey. Additionally, the material in 33A isn't that hard to understand in the first place. The amount of homework he assigned was reasonable. He also assigned weekly quizzes during discussion sections so you had to go. The first midterm was fair, basically if you review the homework, you're good. The second midterm was harder and more theory based. The final was also pretty hard and it had a 53% average. Overall, he was a fair teacher and it shouldn't be too difficult to pass his class.

Recommend him, seriously. Despite his accent he really makes himself clear, and most importantly he seldom makes calculation mistakes. His grading policy is fair and midterms not hard. I suffered Burke, so I know how well Prof Ma teaches.

I started with the class during the COVID epidemic, so perhaps the lectures are different in real life. However he zoomed through classes, speed-running through his own notes leaving the students in the dust. While an accent shouldn't affect one's judgement of a professor, he does have a heavy accent and by the time I could figure out what he said he was 3 pages ahead in his notes. This class is one that will be useful for a long time and I would rather not take it for an entire quarter than to take it with a professor wherein my concepts would remain broken. He takes doubts happily and maintains a cheery mood, but asking for reiteration of a topic would remain to be useless since he would end up skimming through it again. He is a great person with a passion for math however his teaching as a professor could have some major improvement! Despite knowing the starting of the class decently well, his explanation counterintuitively shattered them!
