Professor Shin is one of the best math professors in terms of how he teaches. He's chill and is very welcoming so you shouldn't be afraid to ask questions in class. Homework is hard, but thankfully he is very responsive to any questions (the TA Chuyin was also very helpful and if you need to pick a specific TA for a class choose her). If you can go to any of the office hours for Professor Shin or the TA, I would recommend going since they help break down ideas and tricks for solving problems that are more glossed over in lectures. Finally, DON'T FORGET QUANTIFIERS. You will lose easy points on homework and tests.

This class for many is the first you will have to take for an upper div math course. If there is anyone you would want to take it with it SHOULD be Shin. Lectures and HW are based off the book, and for many you could afford skipping lecture and reading his notes. The great thing about this class and Shin in general is that he is very down to earth and always willing to help. You never feel intimidated about reaching out to him during office hours. His exams are fair and homework based. The one drawback is that the grading is a bit on the stricter side, but it will force you to write better proofs. If you are able to get a spot in his lecture I would recommend 100%. He is for sure one of the chillest profs you will have.
