Enakoutsa...was not good. he genuinely does not know math. Besides spending his lecture purely reading from the textbook and just rewriting all of the information, he is constantly making basic and fundamental mistakes that students must correct him on, other wise he just assumes his answer is right and rolls along. He writes everything out in literal caligraphy and you can only grasp about 30% of what he's actually saying so you are much better off just skipping lectures and reading the frickin book because it will just give you a headache. His homeworks are also PAINFULLY LONG and he consistently assigns the last. problem. of the chapter. Which we ALL know is the hardest and weirdest problem that ends up taking literally an hour. Sorry, ranting, this class is a pain but it has the redeeming quality of having relatively easy tests and finals, probably because he doesn't really know how to form questions on material other than the basics but no complaints on that part.

Koffi is a genuinely caring professor and he's very easy on students. We have 20-30 homework problems every week, but it's easy to learn the concepts while doing the hw & it's great preparation for his exams.

Koffi is pretty good. He is a very caring and humorous professor who obviously cares a lot about teaching. However, his lectures are sometimes a bit dull and not that helpful. I can't really say much about the lectures since I stopped going to them ever since week 2 (I think). Reading the book is essentially how I learned in this class. There are free versions of this book online, and Koffi's tests are very very easy (24 hrs during COVID-19, but idk will that change or not). The homework is way more difficult than the actual tests themselves, and overall it is not hard to get an A in Koffi's class. To summarize: easy A and read the book.

By far the best professor I ever had. he is great at teaching, brilliant, and very engaging. He holds office hours where he essentially does homework problems that students ask about, and he has dozen of practices problem for each prelim and the final. Definitely take him!

Koffi is the goat. Lectures are great, and you learn what you need to be successful on the assessments. There are quizzes which are substantially harder than the tests, but he will sometimes take the best out of each set. The homework can take a long time, but he does not mind if you turn it in late. The tests are generally very fair, and they do not take 6 hours like my other math classes (this was taken during a virtual quarter). Professor does tend to get behind, and in return, there are makeup recordings (about one each week). However, he does have many review sessions for quizzes and tests to keep you prepared. All in all, I would take again and would highly recommend Koffi to anyone.

Dr. Enakoutsa is fantastic both his lectures and discussions are useful. The pacing of the class could have been a little better though--it was slow at the beginning, then picked up near the end, and then crammed a lot of topics (basically the last two chapters) into the last two weeks. That meant a brutal workload near the end since the topics/problems were not only more involved and took long, but there were more problems as well. There's usually around 20 problems straight from the Rogawski Calculus textbook every week and discussions/lectures are not mandatory attendance. Those 20 problems take around 6-8 hours to do which is extremely fair since that's only about an hour of work a day. The hardest part of the class are the quizzes, but he usually does best out of two so a low quiz grade won't hurt you that much. There are two midterms and a final, all are 24 hours long and open note. I liked the way Dr. Enakoutsa taught this course and I'd definitely take another course with this professor if it were taught like this.

UPDATE: dont take enakoutsa if you have any better option.
I thought enakoutsa was a great prof so i decided to take 33b with him as well.... that was a terrible choice. this quarter was far worse. his teaching is extrememly unclear, and if you don't self study you're screwed. that being said, he does geniunely care about his students-- he has daily office hours the days before the final, holds extra review sessions before midterms/finals, and is willing to explain small concepts to you in the middle of lecture if ur confused (which tbh can be kinda annoying when someone asks a million questions and interrupts someone else).

oh also he assigns a lot of hw- 11 homework assignments (including finals week), with on average 25 questions. His midterms/final are very fair though, quizzes can have challenging questions (they're conceptual), but the questions were fair, its not like it was written to punish you. also quizzes are weighted like 10% of your entire grade so its nbd if you miss a couple questions

original review:

Enakoutsa is a decent prof. Probably not my first choice but not a bad choice regardless.

He is very fair on exams: exam questoins are similar to what he teaches in class and often have easy numbers (no super weird numbers) and are decently quick to solve. You could def do a online midterm in like 90 min, and the final in 3 hrs. There are 2 exams + a final

Quizzes: 30 min timed, questions harder than exams but they are weighted very little (quizzes make up 10% of your exam grade and your exam grade is 25% of your final grade iirc)

He is super tough on HW: he assigns a lot of HW (like 10-15+ hrs a week). He grades some questions for accuracy and the rest for completion. HW grading is super generous though (likewise for exams, but not quizzes- quizzes were MC)

Also he doesn't give A+s which is annoying but not too bad

pros:
He has a thicc french accent (tbh its nice to hear, overall this is a pro)
cons:
painful hw
doesn't upload notes

But HW is super painful he assigns so much ow oof ouch owie :(

(also this is a reminder for u to leave reviews!! for ur classes)

Professor Enakoutsa is a great teacher, and I think his personality made him stand out. He allowed as many questions as needed and held lots of office hours and reviews. He was lenient when he could be and if the entire class did poorly on something, he would adjust its weighting. I felt comfortable asking for help and if I was falling behind, he was willing to accommodate. His homeworks are long but I feel like they helped me understand the material. The calc textbook for this class is really good because it highlights the most important theorems and ideas, which made studying more efficient. Quizzes were sometimes tricky, but they were not worth very much and tests were not meant to take the full 24 hours (as the tests in some other math classes do). Highly recommend taking 32B with this professor because I learned a lot, I learned it efficiently, and I felt like the professor really helped me succeed.

To the trash who called Prof. Kofi a Trash Professor: you are the trash that should not be brought on this earth. I feel sorry for your mother...

That been said, Kofi is incredibly smart professor. Challenges you to think critically about every aspect of the topic he is teaching. Very thoughtful and considerate as well. Multivariable calculcus has been one of my favorite courses, and I suspect Professor Kofi will be one of the most influential professors I have as a student.
