I had this teacher for QM and he was the best teacher i have ever had at Dawson. If you get the chance to have him for any class, do not hesitate to take him. His exams and quizzes are basically everything he covered in the powerpoints which are all online. His classes always ended super early and he makes sure that every student understands the course material. He makes the class easy and super understandable. I am going to miss this guy i wish every teacher could be like him!!

I had him for qm and he doesn't let you use a calculator which I found a little tough if you're not good at mental math! But overall he's a great teacher, super nice and fun and he does everything to help you understand and pass

I wish every teacher in Dawson was like him, man is straight to the point. Had him for QM. No textbook, he teaches you in such a simple way and is so respectful. All the slides are posted too, but dont skip class because you get marks for doing in class exercises and labs (no stress). He will teach a topic every class and the next class you will be quizzed on it, which really helps because you hardly have to study for the exams. I got 96% in this course

His class can be boring at times since he literally says what's on the screen for his powerpoint. But he's super nice and awkward in a funny way. Make sure you show up for class though because he gives random quizzes that count for quite a bit once it adds up.

Nixon seems to know nothing as he cites Wikipedia on his many power points but the class is easy enough if you study. He gives you all the questions on the test in advance plus a lot more. If you know the answers for all of them then you good. Showing up is only necessary because he gives little in class assignments that he gives u the answers to in class. If you don't hand it in then its marks off for u. Puts all his power points on the Shared drives though

He reads his powerpoints in class, and they are posted online so you don't have to take notes. Doesnt take attendance, but has (easy) in class exercises every class that you get marks for completing. He tells you exactly what questions will be on the test. Lots of material, but if you study it you will do well.

Had him for Quantitative Methods.... If you have a calculator, burn it or destroy it or he'll do it for you! You are not allowed a calculator for ANYTHING! On tests, especially on the Second QM test, he expects you to do crazy math problems without a calculator. Mind you if you study everyday for a few days then you might be able to do it. If your not good in math without a calculator and if your not good at memorizing word for word what he wants then DO NOT TAKE HIM! ATTENDANCE MANDATORY!!

If you are a parrot or a sheep that doesn't indulge in critical thinking, then go ahead and take his class. He basically gives you anything you need to learn by heart. Useless class for me. It was way too boring. If you want a real religion class, take S.Zylberberg !

I actually freak out when people complain about how hard QM is. Seriously if you're taking QM this is your guy !!! His class seems like it is designed for elementary students! Only downside is there quiz and exercise every single class (exercises count towards participation grade so basically if you go to every class you get 100% in that category). Also not allowed using calculators but gives really simple equations. Makes you redo your worst test at the end of the semester. Need I say more..
