He was an okay professor, though as the person said above, it's hard to catch up if you miss his class. I've had very engaging math professors before him, so he seemed a bit dry compared to them. However, homework wasn't too bad though the tests were challenging. I felt rushed getting the final and midterms done (he timed himself at around 20 minutes or so and then expected us to do it in 50). He uses the regular math department scheme for grades (i.e. you can drop one midterm score and weigh the final heavier).

Overall, if you need to take this class, he's not a bad choice (though not my first).

Well Bateman was actually a pretty good teacher. The main problem with this course is that if you miss a class or dont understand something the book really does not help that much at all. I had to ask the T.A. a lot for help. Also the homeworks are pretty hard but short, I needed to visit the T.A. a lot about those. The tests are actually really hard, except wasn't too bad but the average on all of them was around 50 so he curves them nicely. I would focus on getting as many questions fully right as possible instead of bullshitting as many answers as possible. So quality over volume kind of deal, not too much partial credit.
