Listen folks, we're not talking about any average teacher here. We're talking about the linear god here. This guy is literally the god of linear. He knows every single detail. He makes impossible become possible (which is how he describes linear 2 class as well). But be aware of one fact, he is an aged man. So while he knows a lot about what he's teaching, sometime he might be unable to explain properly. Just make sure you copy all the note and ask question if you're not certain.

Denis is a very nice guy but he's not the best teacher. He only gives you maple labs no homework so you have to work on your own from the textbook. Also, his exams are easy which doesnt help at all because the final is gonna be the shock of your life

Nice guy, extremely easy exams in class, but does not prepare you for final exams. Let me repeat, he does not prepare you for that 50% final exam that is going to fail you by surprise at the end of the semester. My suggestion, study another teacher's final review package instead of going along with the misleading review package given by Denis.

Like everyone's said, the guy really knows his stuff. He's a bit awkward but you get used to his lectures. Very clear explanations throughout lectures, though class can get pretty boring. Nice guy, no homework so you'll need to take it upon yourself to study the text book a lot as he only gives review sheets before an exam. Definitely would take him again.

I had him for Cal 1. He's a cute awkward man but the way he teaches the class is pretty boring. He's really clear at explaining but I found myself falling asleep in his class pretty often. Don't expect him to know your name either unless if you visit him during office hours. Also, don't expect any Webworks or Omnivox. He's really old fashioned and will give you occasional assignments that you have to do on paper. Cal 1 is no easy subject, no matter what teacher you have so it all depends on you.

The truly great thing about this teacher is that he explains everything in such a clear way there's no way you'll have questions about his lectures. If you take notes in class maple labs won't be much of a challenge and you will be prepared for the tests and final. I highly recommend him!

linear algebra II - i had never taken him b4 and thats prob y i didnt do very well. lots of maple labs (he assumes u understand how to use it, if u took him b4 ud know how, thats y i didnt do too well). if ur not an honours student, this is a very hard course trust me. also, he write his own book -> skips many steps in examples (confusing) and his "solutions book" (only answers) is almost all blank! lots of theory too! :S 3rd test is easiest by far. i barely passed. ave. is good cuz of the honours students

He's a hard marker too, but meh, it's not an excuse; you gotta study. He's a very nice guy though and has a decent sense of humor. We make him laugh every class.
