From California's Flagship University

The author of this post isn't enamored of a particular calculus course offered at UC Berkeley:
This year, I encountered the world’s worst calculus class, a mutant-frog specimen of undergraduate mathematics: UC Berkeley’s Math 16B. It’s an exercise in cynicism; a master-class in spite; a sordid and cautionary tale of everything that can go wrong in curriculum design.
The author then proceeds to justify those statements, and justify them well.

It's a funny read.
