Quarter Taken: Winter 2017 Submitted March 22, 2017 Grade Received: B+

Very knowledgable professor, always gives concrete and real life examples of the material he teaches in class. The class was from 8-10a so lots of lazy students never showed up to class, only about half of attendance, yet the professor understood that and never used attendance against anyone. The homework was exceptionally difficult and a bit disconnected from what is given in class, but the TA Moupi was very helpful and accommodating. The midterm and final were okay though, and his grading is fair. Overall, I learnt quite a bit but was always behind on homework to really enjoy the class.

The previous review is accurate, and honestly an understatement regarding some parts.

Its actually hard to write this review because of how frustrating this class was. Here are a list of weaknesses that Professor Marian needs to fix. He made the class extremely frustrating for me and many classmates and the experience was embarrassing for the undergraduate education in the material science department.

- Worst lecture slides. Did not relate lecture slides to homework AT ALL! Always did a top level review of subjects in class and did not explain quantitative equations. NO EXAMPLE PROBLEMS in an application based class...

- Very clearly did not care about students. Never established office hours. Had an attitude like he had something more important to do. Did not fix obvious mistakes in lecture slides.

-Homework was a joke.

-Midterm was a joke. Midterm point distribution was out of whack. Small mistakes meant half the problem was wrong.

- I could go on and on, but to sum up - Marian obviously cared little about his class, his lectures only ever skim the surface and do not connect with his homework or tests, and overall he just made me disinterested in the subject matter.
