"Tests are tough" "Tough Grader" "Skip class? You won't pass."

He doesn't tell you when your exams are until a week before. More often than not he will make a mistake in one of the packets he gives you. You have a quiz every time class meets. He often leaves to go get food and will readily call out a student who isn't listening.

MATH 100 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: Rather not say
"Pop quiz master" "Lectures are long" "Clear grading criteria"

This teacher has little to no respect for the students. He won't tell you in advance examtest dates. He will higher your grade if you kiss up. Lectures are poorly set up and he also frequently leaves class to get snacks and lunch from a cafeteria across from the building. I don't know how he's still employed.

"Inspirational" "Would take again" "Clear grading criteria"

All i have to say is that he is the teacher ever! Math seems so easy when he explains! Homework is optional but it helps your grade! Attending is mandatory because he gives little quizzes everyday, he seems to love what he does! Book is necessary for hw! But you're not going to need it if you put attention in class. I TOTALLY RECOMMENDED..

"Gives good feedback" "Clear grading criteria" "There for you"

Jared is by far the best math teacher I have ever come across. He is dedicated and very smart. He made the information very clear and he made even the hardest sections seem simple. I enjoyed his class and wish he taught my next math class.

Jared is a great teacher! Quizzes everyday but you only turn them in if you think they will help your grade, he helps you review for tests and provides tones of worksheets so you can do extra practice. Hw is not mandatory and he has a pretty laid back personality. Highly recommend taking him!

Jared makes math seem extremely simple. As someone who has struggled my whole life with math, I appreciate this! If you go to class and pay attention-you're solid. He has you practice what he is talking about immediately so if you have any questions ask right then and there, he will never make you feel stupid! If you struggle with math, take him!!

Jared is a great teacher. He explains everything thoroughly and helps you out when needed. His attitude is always good and he tries to make the class fun (even with cheesy jokes).

Awesome teacher. Keeps class fun and has good sense of humor. Very available for outside help and doesn't make you feel like your wasting his time. That's huge for me. If you like math, he's your guy.

Best math teacher ever. Coolest guy you'll meet. I've never met a man with such a love for cats, but no ability to draw them. Take his class!

I loved math with Hersh! His lectures are concise and very understandable, and his classwork packet helps to get extra practice on the material. He's a fair grader and will give partial points if you at least try to work out the problem. Math seemed like a breeze when I took him for Calculus! I will definitely retake him if I have the opportunity.

Best math teacher I have ever had- I had to retake this class (different teacher the first time) and was worried about how well I would do in his class- WOW. I ended up with a B+ in the class, coming from a D previously- I certainly credit him.

Math-150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Of all the math teachers I've had, he is by far one of the most helpful and understanding. He uses various methods to keep students interested, and the class really bonded well with each other and the teacher - which says a lot. He does a good job explaining the material and is honest about what you need to know and what is just "interesting."

Pretty good teacher. A couple of short quizzes every week along with a little homework each night on Aleks. If you show you know the material, he wont mark you down for missing assignments online. Overall great teacher. If you want a good grade and to actually learn something, I recommend taking his class.

He assigns homework but it does not count against you if you don't do it. Also on tests and quizzes even if you end up with the wrong answer but understand the concept he still gives most of the points. Overall he is a great teacher and actually made me enjoy calculus

I didnt' like him. He doesn't go step by step in a problem because he expects you to already know the stuff. He also comes off cocking and annoying. The only good thing I can honestly say about him is that he doesn't assign that much homework.

I hated math all my life. Jared provides packets for the lectures which provides clarity. his daily quizzes test you on the hw. Showing him respect and asking for help when you need it are essential. Don't be afraid to ask questions. I got the first A in Math because of him, I strongly recommend Jared Hersh.

Math110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I took Jared for LC 110/120. I hated math and always had but he made my transition to college easier. It is a hard class and requires hard work but if your willing to do homework daily, daily quizzes and study, you will do well. Hard work pays off! Take him. I never missed a class because I wanted to learn( and he covers around 3 sections per day)
