System Dynamics
5*****
Really awesome teacher. His main philosophy was that he doesn't want students to stress about exams, therefore, if you understand the material and study a decent amount you can usually get an A on his exams. He gives practice tests that are very similar to the real test, sometimes with identical questions. The homework was pretty short and about once every 2 weeks. He randomly collects one of the problems. He often gave advice about the professional world and even offered some research positions for people who submitted resumes.

Pros: Really nice professor, very passionate about teaching.
Cons: Can be stubborn and get frustrated with the class sometimes; he's a bit moody.
I got screwed at the end of the class. We showed up to the final and he told us on the spot that it was now optional. He said he would show us our grade before the final, and we could take that grade in the class, or try to improve it by taking the final (the final could possibly hurt you as well). I was certain that I had an A in the class, after calculating everything myself. He showed that I had a B, so I talked to him about it. He had recorded two zeroes for homework grades, even though I assured him I turned in every one. Then he told me it was not up for discussion, and because I was so upset, I just took the B and walked away. Very upsetting considering how much work I put into the class.



He lets you do a project that has anything to do with the subject of the course, but beware, it has to be very detailed research; he will know if you waited until the last week to do it. Homework was extremely easy and we graded them ourselves, but like I warned, make sure he records the grades correctly.

Pros: Wants you to learn, tells you to leave with an A on the first day if you are just there for the grade. Very knowelegeble from real world experience, interested in student welfare
Cons: some of the stuff can be mildly boring, but most of it is very informative
Ahmadian is one of the best professors I had at tech, if more professors were like him I think i would have come away from tech knowing alot more (and with better grades to boot). He's willing to put in the extra effort to help students, and he does some pretty legit research too, all around an awesome professor. P.S. if he teaches system dynamics, he's good at that one too!

5*****
Pros: Very fun, makes the class simply, very knowledgeable
Cons: nothing
Dr. Ahmadian is by far the best System Dynamics professor you can get. He makes the class extremely simple by assigning only about 4 hw problems a week and grades one. Each exam has a practice exam that has 'very similar' problems to what you will see on the actual exam. Plus, he does know what he's doing and you can tell he loves it.
