Prof. David Mount‘s class is full of fun. He is a responsible professor and designs all of interesting exams and homework by himself. He draws very nice picture and neat lecture notes on the whiteboard! Enjoy it! Reviews from OurUMD.com:
Really enjoyed his lectures. He knows this stuff really well and can explain ANYTHING.
Dave Mount is a really good professor simply because of two things: he knows graphics well, and he is exceptional at teaching.
Great lectures and lecture notes. Comprehensive, lucid, and insightful best described the class. Homework was challenging but quite interesting. Exams were likewise challenging but definitely not impossible if you understood the material. There’s a lot of non-linear thinking involved which is not too uncommon for proof-based mathematics courses but may surprise those coming from a traditional CS background.
This is NOT the official class website. Here is the official one: http://www.cs.umd.edu/class/fall2014/cmsc754/ Prof. Mount shared all lecture notes and homework without solution kindly 🙂
There are 5 very challenging homework in this class. Due to the confidential reason, I cannot share my homework nor the solution here. However, they are available upon request.
