Comment: Had Cody for Math 54 in Summer 2012. On the bright side, he's pretty funny and good about addressing questions. I really did like him as a person. BUT, I would definitely not recommend taking a class over again with him in the summer. We were given 90+ problems sets to do in a week sometimes (whereas other sections only had 40-60 problems). He focused way WAY too much on theory in lectures that at least half the class stopped showing up since we often left more confused than we were before coming. He screwed up in terms of time management. We had to learn partial differential equations literally THE WEEK OF THE EXAM/ last week. Good luck attempting to learn PDE's in a few days. The midterm was really fair. Final was a complete disaster however- nobody that I know of managed to finish it and the questions were much, much harder than anything I've seen on homework's, quizzes, or past exams online that I used for practice.

Comment: Really liked this GSI. Homework grades are mostly based on completion. Quizzes are fair and manageable as long as you go to the sections and understand the material.
