I pulled an all nighter(never again) and decided to take an hour power nap, then my alarm doesn't go off and I run into the exam 30 minutes late. Professor Ebrahimian then allowed me extra time to complete the exam. I don't think any of my previous professors would have allowed this. On top of that he is an amazing teacher 10 stars |

Clear, informative, knowledgeable, posts notes. Weekly quizzes and exams are straightforward and similar to homework/practice problems. Pay attention and do the homework and you will succeed. |

Dr. Ebrahimian is an excellent teacher. He's not particularly easy, but he's there for you if you ask for help. He cares a lot about teaching well and about students learning the material properly. This means his courses tend to be harder, but he also gives you plenty of resources to help them to be manageable. His lectures are quite good. He also makes his own notes, which may follow the text closely but with additional material and examples. He gives additional practice problems in addition to the (fairly sizeable) weekly homework. He pulls from {homework, practice problems} for his weekly quizzes. Attending lectures is important. He holds extensive office hours, holds review sessions before exams, and is available via email. He often gives the answers to the homework, quiz, and even exam questions (modulo some slight modification) between his lectures, review sessions, and rigid study guides. The course grades are typically not curved (or only lightly), so you have a good idea of where you stand throughout the course, but he does drop your lowest few quizzes and homeworks, and your final can supplant a midterm if you did poorly on one. |

Before I start this review, this will be a review of both the course of MATH340 and professor Roohollah Ebrahimian and how he teaches the course. I love this class. BUT understand, if you are debating on taking this course, understand this: This course is HARD. I have basically never studied for math tests in high school and I feel this class pushed me harder than I ever have before, and I have likely spent more time on these 4 credits than the other 13 credits I am taking this semester. You may think you are good at math, this course will humble you real quick. Also a little background of what knowledge I knew going into the course so you can compare against me. I know the equivalent of CALC BC in high school with very little background in linear algebra, proofs, analysis. I knew a SLIGHT bit of multivariable calculus but still very little. Needless to say, almost everything we learned in the course I was learning from scratch. Also note I put the expected grade as A+ (which is my goal) but it is very possible I will end up with an A as well depending on how I do on the final (which I will be happy with). Favorite class I have taken so far at UMD. Easily. I love this course and it has flat out changed the way I have looked at math and I am now likely going to pick up math as a double major because of it (before I was just planning to be CS). The Class: As I have said before, this class is HARD. Do not take this for an easy A. Take this if you want to learn. Likely one of the hardest classes in the math department in terms of "skill jump" per say, but the effort I have put into the class is well worth it. Something I feel the math department (not the class) fails at is describing the course properly through testudo and any other websites. This course if PROOF BASED (at least mostly). For majority of the year you will be doing proofs and looking at theory, not just computation. This changes in the multivariable section of the course (because the proofs will become so complicated and long that its just not doable to do them in this course), but understand you will not be doing basic computation like, "solve this integral" or "take this derivative" like what you are normally used to. Another thing that testudo does not properly cover, is that the course mostly takes place in R^n (n-dimensional space). NOTE: I am happy the course is taught this way, I am just saying that it needs to be explained better when signing up for classes. For the structure of the class, I would split up the course sections like this 1. Proofs and set theory (really just first week but all these concepts will be used heavily for the rest of the semester) 2. Linear Algebra 3. Some analysis and a little topology 4. Multivariable calc There is a lot of work. Every week we get a bunch of generally difficult problems to complete. These HWs are HARD. I have spent hours on hours doing these homework's. Some of the problems are very very fun, some not so much, but I can say with certainty they have helped me understand and absorb the material significantly better. Work in groups on these HWs, help each other. I cannot overstate this. Make sure you communicate and talk with classmates while doing these problems. If there is one tip I could give you going into the course its this one. TLDR: Hard class do not underestimate it, worth the effort, and very rewarding. The Professor: TREE(3)/5 stars. Seriously I cannot recommend him enough. Amazing professor who explains things very well, and very clearly genuinely cares about math and teaching. Something that stuck with me is on the first day of class, he told us the reason why he teaches the course is because of the students and their passion to learn (paraphrased). He is very accommodative and would highly recommend you take him if you have the opportunity (this goes for all classes not just 340!). He types of notes of EVERYTHING we do in class, which are amazing. I cannot tell you how many times I have pulled up that document and read through it while doing the homework. These notes are amazing. Seriously, take advantage of them if you take Dr. Ebrahimian. He also has a YT channel where he posted explanations of lectures (https://www.youtube.com/@DrEbrahimianMathCourses/). Although he had to slow down and not post as many at the end which is completely understandable. 340 related content: For 340 he gave weekly quizzes. Although stressful at times, I actually am pretty gratefully for the quizzes. Studying for them forced me to make sure I completely understood the topic before moving on, making sure that I have a clear understanding for future content. Throughout the semester he drops the 2 lowest HWs and the 2 or 3 lowest quizzes, so if you mess up 1 or 2 weeks it is not to bad (seriously thank goodness for these quiz drops). On top of this, if you do better on the final over 1 of your midterms, the final grade will replace the midterm. Example if your confused (M->midterm, F->final): Say you get M1: 80% M2: 90% and F:98%. Then your final grades would become M1: 98%, M2: 90%, F:98%. This guarantees even if you messed up 1 midterm, you still have a shot to do well in the class which is much appreciated. I cannot recommend this professor enough. Take him if you have the opportunity. |

Ebrahimian posts pdf notes and occasionally YouTube videos about what he goes over in class which is super helpful. He takes his lectures seriously and tries to answer questions as well as he can. We take quizzes every Friday at the beginning of class, and homework is also due at the beginning of class on Fridays. Exams align well with what we're taught, and he posts study guides for them. Would recommend. |

The ideal math teacher in every aspect. Clear lecturing, clean handwriting. Expanded office hours based on student feedback. Detailed and comprehensive typed notes cover *everything* in lecture. Quizzes are taken from HWs. Exams closely follow the study guide. Dr. Ebrahimian is committed to teaching well. The class itself is a hard 400-level math class (part of the heavily theoretical 403-405 sequence). Spent 10hrs/wk on average. If you are a good math student you will love his style of teaching. |

Amazing professor. Dr. Ebrahimian answers all questions, even ones about algebra, he has many opportunities for office hours every week, is available for questions after class, grades easy, and makes what one would expect to be an extremely difficult class not stressful yet still comprehensive. I don't mean he teaches less and has low expectations; the course is more rigorous than 240 and 241. What makes the class incredibly manageable is that he posts around 20 examples and exercises for each week that you can do before working on the problem sets to practice less difficult problems. The problem sets are due on Fridays but assess you on the previous week's material, so you have 1 week to reflect, process, and practice the material. The TAs also grade a few questions on each problem set for completion in the first half of the semester. |

A very qualified professor, holistically. Dr. Ebrahimian is an IMO (International Mathematics Olympiad) silver medalist, so clearly he is knowledgeable, which he reflects in his lectures. Speaking of which, his lectures were informative and helpful, albeit they took a lot of energy to follow. I think it would have been helpful if Ebrahimian provided recordings for his lectures so that we could've gone back and checked some topics we didn't fully grasp (especially for a class like 340). Please do not miss his classes, unless you're godsent. The homework for our class was challenging; some problems could take you hours even if you were or weren't familiar with the lecture material. Fortunately, Ebrahimian was very helpful in his office hours and gave good guidance on how to solve homework problems. My least favorite part of the class would have definitely been the weekly quizzes we had, which were based on the homework problems and exercises he assigned us to review. Keep this into consideration if you're planning to take him. I think a lot of stress would have been mitigated if it weren't for the quizzes, and honestly I don't think they helped us prepare for his exams. The class also highly weighted exams and quizzes: HW 15%, Quizzes 20%, 2 Midterms 40%, Final 25%. Fortunately, the lowest midterm grade did get replaced by half of our final exam grade if it were good, but there was still an 85% weight on exams. If you are up for a challenge, Ebrahimian could be a great fit for you. Even though his class for me was stressful, he is kind and reserved, and passionate about math. You'll surely learn a lot from him. |

If you go to every class, take notes, and do all the homework, all of which was fair and doable, you'll receive the grade you want. He provides study guides before midterms and final, and if you can do those and the problems from previous year exams, you'll most likely ace the exams. If you need help, his office hours are insanely helpful. |

Dr. Ebrahimian is a great professor. He is very nice, and even cracks a clever joke once in a while. He puts a lot of emphasis on doing examples in class, and of course always had office hours available. We did a week of preliminary stuff (set theory, notation, and intro to proofs), 4 weeks of linear algebra, and then spent the remaining 9 weeks on multivariable calculus. This is a proof-based course, so if you're planning on taking it, don't expect the homework and tests to be as simple as writing the correct answer. The weekly quizzes are usually not too difficult if you did the homework. That being said, the homework can take quite a long time, so start early! Overall, I really did love this class, and it's one of the reasons I'm adding a second major in math. If you have a strong interest in math or are a math major, I would highly recommend this sequence. |

This course was legit one of the most challenging math classes I’ve ever taken in my life. However, having Ebrahimian teach it made it significantly more understandable. I would say Ebrahimian went above and beyond in terms of listening to his students’ requests and working his hardest to make sure we had what we needed to succeed. An incredibly knowledgeable lecturer, as well as a fast grader, Ebrahimian graded all of our assignments in a prompt, timely manner and even went as far as grading our second midterm within a day to give us time to decide whether or not we wanted to withdraw before the withdraw deadline. Never have I seen a man be asked a question and simply go to town on the blackboard and answer it concisely and understandably within a few minutes. He even dropped an extra quiz and homework for us at the end of the semester! 10/10 would recommend. |

One of the best math professor. He has weekly quiz, even sometimes stressful, but do force you to learn.

challenging, but a great professor. had him for 341 last semester, but didn't get around to reviewing until now. his weekly quizzes are mostly reiterations of the homework, and so are free points. but you're going to need those points, as exams are quite hard (but fair), along with homeworks and study guides. if you do well on the homework and study guide, the exams are just like those. you'll walk out of the class really understanding the material he teaches you. if you just wanted an easy a...find someone else. also, his class is very well-organized. notes are posted online, and his "drop one exam for the final" is merciful, since the final has an extra credit question. |

Professor Ebrahimian is genuinely the best math professor I could have asked for. He has incredibly well-structured lectures and is always very well prepared for the class. He is concise and clear when explaining topics and has a very good teaching style. His exams aren't too difficult either. He makes sure to review practically all the different kinds of questions he's gonna ask on the exam so if you go to class and just pay attention, you'll get an easy A. For my class, he took a lot of quizzes but they only helped me out more cause they made me actually learn the section he was gonna quiz us on. If you can take him, TAKE HIM. I highly doubt there's a single math professor at UMD that is as good as and cares as much as Professor Ebrahimian. |

Dr. Ebrahimian is a very good professor. His lectures are very informative and it's very useful if you go to them, however he does post some summarized lecture notes that are useful to know what you missed. You can also use this lecture note PDF to know what topics may fall in the quiz (as the weekly quizzes cover material from the previous Wednesday to the Monday preceding the quiz). As for his exams, they're overall fair. He provides a very generous amount of review material for every exam (even the final!) which you should ABSOLUTELY study. If you know every topic on those practice exams, you're near guaranteed to do well on his exams. He does teach fast, but he has to due to the sheer amount of material there is. Lowest exam is dropped for your final if it helps your grade, and your lowest 2 quizzes are dropped as well. One thing to note, the MATLAB assignments start off really easy, but the last couple can be challenging, so don't start those too late. If I'm recommending a good time to start and do these assignments, do it while you review for your exam! They're normally due shortly after an exam, but the content on these assignments are really helpful when it comes to understanding how to set up your integrals and the topics you should know. I found myself doing them AFTER the exams then being upset I didn't do them earlier! |

The course is definitely difficult and requires you to pay attention, but Professor Ebrahimian made the class so much better. He knows literally everything there is to know about all the subjects and is always willing and able to help any student when they are struggling with a problem or grasping a concept. I absolutely loved learning with Professor Ebrahimian and would recommend him to anyone who needs to take Calc 3. The course was set up very well, and I liked that the hw was not required. It created a system that encouraged you to be responsible for your own learning without affecting your grade. The entire course was planned out in the syllabus, and there were no surprise assignments or unexpected changes to the schedule. His exams were super fair and his grading was very fast. We often would receive quizzes and tests back within a week of taking them, during the following class or two. This course was probably my favorite math course that I have taken in my academic career, and would love to have Dr. Ebrahimian as an instructor again in the future. |

Fantastic lecturer. Very knowledgeable and encourages participation. Keeps a document of all of the notes (theorems, definitions, example problems, etc.) from class, although you should still take notes because that document doesn't show the solutions to in-class examples. Doesn't grade on participation or attendance but those are still imperative to your understanding of the material if it's your first time seeing it. The weekly quizzes and 3 exams over the course of the semester are not very difficult if you're caught up and have properly reviewed the notes and homework. The homework can be very difficult and time-consuming (especially the first few assignments) but it is generally necessary and helps with understanding. |

Dr. Ebrahimian finds a good balance between being accommodating and helpful while still making sure you actually get a good understanding of the material. Tests and quizzes, which make up the vast majority of grades for the class, are pretty similar to the examples covered in class, so take good notes and study them and you'll be fine. My only criticism is that the MATLAB textbook was sometimes pretty unhelpful for the projects, so be sure to find some resources (like Justin's notes) to get those done. Overall, definitely recommend taking this class with Ebrahimian though. |

Dr. Ebrahimian is one of the best math teachers I have had. His lecture notes are clear and easy to follow. If a student has a question, he took the time to answer it even if it was already asked. Dr. E never got annoyed by "too many questions," and encouraged more questions. If we did not get to all the lecture material he wanted, he adjusted the following lectures accordingly. Although this was over virtual learning, I am certain the way he teaches in-person lectures is just the same. Quizzes and exams were very representative of what was learned in lectures and discussions. There were never any curveball questions, so if you attend lectures, discussions, and GSS occasionally, you should have all the resources needed to be successful. There were suggested textbook problems, but I found they were more complex than what was asked. However, they are good for more practice since the textbook is online and has solutions underneath each problem statement. |

Dr. Ebrahimian is a good, organized lecturer. He also very much enjoys the process of problem-solving, and he is willing to field any questions. He posts all the lecture notes, and he has a nice summary note collection in pdf format with further examples and problems. He has been pretty reasonable, although a bit of a traditionalist in ways. His class is more engaging than most 403 courses in a few ways: 1.) It covers somewhat more material (e.g., Sylow theorems, solvability, group presentations, which are not generally covered); 2.) To that end, he sometimes left material out of lectures to notes; 3.) He has weekly quizzes. Beyond the usual benefits of attending class, he also tends to draw exam and quiz problems from examples seen in class once, or in the extra examples/problems in his notes, or from the homework. In some cases, this has a slight problem insofar as it can mean two students might have equal overall understanding of the material tested by a particular question, but one of them, say, looked to the examples in the notes and say nearly the same question worked out, so they can do it basically immediately, whereas the other has to struggle through it and so spend less time on other problems. Of course, this is always a factor, but it seems somewhat distinguished here, so being studious is especially good in this class! Overall, a great professor and an important, interesting class for mathematics majors. The difficulty is probably 5/5 for most students, but it is also rewarding. The structure is essentially traditional with lecture, weekly p-sets, weekly quizzes, two midterms, and one final. I believe two quizzes and p-sets are dropped, and your lowest exam grade can be supplanted by your final, but otherwise, little or no curving. |

Very good lecturer. He does a lot of examples and every week he provides written notes that include even more written out examples. His homework does take a lot of time but that may just be due to the nature of Math 340/341. However, he is very helpful during office hours and does a really good job helping students out when they need it.

If you take this class with any other remotely difficult or time-consuming classes, you are doomed. He has homework due every class and weekly quizzes. As well, he will go very quickly through the material and if you take time to ask questions, he will just skip some material and say he will go back to it later (which he won’t). However, I believe I would have had a much better time in this class had it not been for the rest of my schedule also being rigorous. He is very friendly and tries his best to help everyone succeed, but only if you approach him. His grading is unforgiving but some of his policies help mitigate that (only if you do well enough in most of the course). Overall, a rough class that I wish I was more prepared for, but Ebrahimian is a good professor if you have too much time on your hands. |

I don't think MATH341 is that hard. But take that with a grain of salt. if you put in the same amount of work that you did in MATH340 then expect to get a higher grade in MATH341. As taught, the content is definitely conceptually easier for many people to grasp and the computational nature of the course suits many of the "honors" kids who are very good at doing that type of stuff. Conceptually nothing in this course is very difficult if you bother to remember some of the concepts that you absorbed in MATH340. There are a lot of theorems which will have to be black boxed (some of the existence-uniqueness theorems require difficult real analysis). As a lecturer I think Ebrahimian is okay. He covers the content with plenty of examples and if you have questions he will usually have a good explanation. There are plenty of professors in the department who are just awful lecturers, and Ebahimian is NOT one of them. He is a little more demanding than the average professor, however. Do make sure you keep up with the material. Doing homeworks last minute does not count. If you do that the weekly quizzes he gives will probably tank your grade hard. |

He seems like a nice guy, but meh as a teacher. He writes everything down really fast and flies through examples making it hard to follow lecture sometimes. That said, lecture is pretty much him explaining concepts followed by doing examples all class. On the bright side he doesn't grade homework for 241 (at least when I took it in fall 2018). |

A great sense of humor and extremely knowledgeable. If he doesn't know the answer to question, he'll tell you and may come back with answer next class. Entertains students' questions and concerns, going so far as to sending out a survey on his performance halfway through the semester. |

Ebrahimian is the man. Extremely knowledgeable on whatever subject he may be teaching, always willing to help students and is passionate about math overall. I think his courses are a bit on the hard side compared to other professors, but he teaches the content so well you probably won't even notice. |

Ebrahimian is a very effective teacher. The best thing about his class is that he engages students and lets students finish proofs. If you want to learn material well, take his class. However, he makes the grading a bit harder than is really necessary, and has HW due every single class. |
