Fantastic guy. Teaches the class very well.

dont worry if you did poorly in ieor 3600 - prof sigmans greatest strength is being able to explain complex probability proofs and theorems in ways very easy to understand.

I did horrible in marianna cravioto's ieor 3600 because she could never explain the material unless it was in exact mathematical proofs.

dont worry about that with sigman.

he kind of looks like Splinter from teenage mutant ninja turtles, which for me anyway, is a bonus.

Workload:

2 midterms, final. very fair. weekly problem sets that arent bad at all.

Great guy! Interesting and clear in class, and generally a nice person to talk to, interested not only in your academic success but also in you as a person. I enjoyed taking Stochastic Models with him, and would sign up for more of his classes.

Workload:

PS every week, sometimes challenging but never impossible. 2 midterms and final (very fair)

Even though Sigman is a very good teacher this class is poorly taught. How is this possible? Well, the class is only once a week and it is 2.5 hour lecture. However, neither the students nor Sigman can sit there for 2.5 hours. Therefore, he has to skim over the material and he never has time to solve complicated problems. If this class were twice a week, I am sure that everyone would learn much more. The material is complex but not too hard. His first exam was easy. The second one was mad hard (mean was 40 out of 90) and the final was slightly easier than the second exam. He is a very calm and good teacher. However, he has to put more effort into this class to make it better. I guess he does not really care about undergrads.
