Comment: Pretty straight forward. Reasonable tests and presents information like all math classes with chalk and writing on the board. Section is most important because you actually practice. Weekly quizzes keep you on your game and are worth a good amount. Studying for them is important. For sections I recommend Jason F cool dude and really helpful. Not like the other GSI's who just hand out worksheets and you work in groups. He re-presents the info and asks any questions does things as a group going over questions about homework, quizzes or anything in general.

Comment: Evans was a great teacher! He was funny, nice and explained math concepts well. Definitely made the Math 10 series better, esp. after taking 10A with Sturmfels. He went over a lot of sample problems in class and the assignments and tests were reasonable. I would recommend studying for tests by doing a lot of practice problems over and over.

Comment: Very enthusiastic about his lecture material. A great class to take as well as a great professor to take it with! Although final was a bit hard, it was curved appropriately (and generously I'd say) so the grades were good in the end :)

Comment: Evans is an enthusiastic lecturer and he kept me engaged during class for the most part. The midterms were fair but the final exam was difficult. He really takes student feedback into account so talk to him in office hours! Good Math 10B professor overall

Comment: I thought the material was difficult, as it was mostly new to me. The midterms were quite easy, and the homework was doable, but the final was incredibly hard, as were quizzes in section with many tricky problems. Evans is a great teacher, funny, helpful, and approachable in office hours, though he can go off topic and gets really sweaty/out of breath. I was very glad this was my last math class at Cal, and I ended up with a B+ after failing a few quizzes and probably the final as well.

Comment: Was a great professor and very enthusiastic until the final exam when he had something extremely hard that he did not prepare us well for or give us forewarning.
