Course(s) taken: 132

He knows his stuff, and he makes sure you understand the material. As for exams, he doesn't curve, but his tests are relatively easy (except for one crazy 40 mark qn on one of the midterms) however he has an option of taking 100% on the final, which is very useful for all the last-minute workers. Unfortunately he also doesn't give too much partial credit, especially in prove questions, and his exams consist of only a few questions, so when i was taking the final i kinda felt like i was either going to get an A or an F. All in all he's also a great character, with a great sense of humour, and unless u're one of those people who can't understand anyone who doesn't have a californian accent, he's a great professor to have, both for learning and for grades.

He definitely knows what he's talking about and has a passion for analysis. His lectures and proofs sometimes get very convoluted, but he is more than willing to repeat himself and re-explain things if students ask. The grading policy was great: the best of two options. Option 1 was 10% homework, 40% midterm and 50% final, option 2 wa 100% final. Also, he was helpful in office hours.

He's a nice guy. I took his PIC 10a class. Like some other people said, he's not an expert at C++ but he knows enough to teach a beginner. His homework is sometimes difficult but not impossible. If you know the basics of programming(even another programming language) and you want a easy "A" then take his class. Midterms is easy and his final is also fairly easy.

i'm afraid to say that for math 33b his lectures were a little too much out of the book. he was very concerned with student learning and a very funny, guy. the only problem i had with him in the summer was that besides hw, he only had one midterm with three questions and a final with six questions- nowhere to go if you get stuck on one problem.

He plays chess and bughouse very well.

Please don't take the guy for PIC... I assure you... you're better off reading the book if you do, and you better hope you get some credit on the impossible homework problems. On the upside, his PIC midterms are easy!

ACtually, I think he is very good in math. I understood about some type of differential equations when he came to substitute my professor. He knows his material and explains very well. Maybe he is not good for PIC, but I think he is much better for math. I liked him the few times I had the opportunity to have him.

not sure about him for math, but if he ever teaches another pic course,
stay away. he doesn't know what he's talking about, just sitting home and reading the book is more effective.
after all, he lectures straight out of the book, except makes mistakes copying it onto the board. the book, however, won't make mistakes when you copy it to your brain.
his tests are ridiculously easy to the point where you end up with a B if you make a small mistake because the curve is so high, and his projects
are correspondingly unreasonably difficult. take someone else, please.

Don't take him for PIC. He has some knowledge of programming, but it is way limited. More often than not, students would correct his mistakes in lecture. Also, his homework problems are way too complex for what he's teaching.

As a 33B professor Professor Perez-Marco was exceptional. He covered the material well, illustrating everything with good examples. In addition, he's a really nice guy.

As a math teacher, I can't comment. I know him as a student of the PIC 10A course he taught. Straight out of the textbook. No new information. Couldn't help out students with more advanced questions (didn't know the answers or wouldn't during class). He's a nice guy, but people find him so boring and not helpful that they have just walked out of some of his letures.

He was my Math 33A professor, and he taught the course on matrices very well.
