Math 46 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

If you ever want to understand how math relates to the real world just ask Professor Young. Before he teaches you a new concept he tells short stories to paint an image in your head of what youre about to learn. best math teacher ever.

Math 104 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: C

Great professor. I had gotten very sick in the middle of the semester and was close to passing. He made a deal with me that if I could score an 85% on the final, he would pass me with a C. Promptly responded to e-mails.

MATH46 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Took professor young for math 46 and I have to say, he's by far the best math teacher Ive had. He breaks up class in a timely manner; usually uses the first half of the hour to explain the material then the second half hour he gives a worksheet for you to do. provides review sheets before the tests, definitely planning on taking him for 96

MATH104 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Professor Young was very helpful and understanding throughout the semester. This class online is pretty challenging and has a lot of material to cover for a 3 unit class, with a lot of homework and tests every 2 weeks. This was my hardest class this semester but also the most rewarding. You have to read the whole book and tests are on all chapters.

MATH119 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Stats with Prof Young was fun. Keep up with the homework, and make sure to do the practice tests if you want to do well on the the actual tests. He makes the class interesting by using examples we all relate to. Once you figure out how to make the Ti-84 do most of the work, the class is a breeze. I got an A.

math046 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

he gets a little confusing at times but if you ask him to explai, he will. hes very fun and laid back and will make the practice tests very hard so that the acctual test is easy so if you have that down your solid. he caan be a little strict at times but for the majority of the time hes very laid back.

This guy is the bomb!!! Vector-calculus is so easy with him. He explains every theorem to the minute details and explain how they work. Take him for MATH-252!!! It'd be so easy.

Math96 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Gifted, passionate, and talented teacher. Knows his stuff. Crystal clear while teaching. I loved his style of teaching. Very organized as well. Reviewed alot for tests. Makes practice tests almost identical to the real tests. On the other hand, a bit on the nervous/stressed out side. Always seemed to be in a hurry and annoyed when I asked him for h

math96 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Would take again if I could. Younger guy, so more approachable. Clarifies everything nicely, just the right amount of homework, and reviews like crazy for tests. You have to seriously try not to pass not to pass. He had an online textbook option for this class, but not sure how often that applies.

Anyone who gives Young a bad rating is delusional or did a class online. He's an excellent teacher who goes the extra mile outside of the classroom to help students as much as he can. Genuinely expresses enthusiasm and humor about math, which can make the subject "less scary" for some people. Yes, there is a slight grading curve too.

He will explain everything crystal clear, and if you do have any questions left, he will explain the subject in many different ways. Great professor. Besides he is somewhat of an easy grader.

Math141 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Paul is perhaps the best math teacher ive ever encountered. Hes totally clear. works out plenty of complete and helpful problems in class. Tests on problems that are either from the homework or practice tests.Lets you use a page of notes which alleviates much of the stress that comes with memorizing tons of formulas.friendly and ready to answer ?'s

Not sure what the last person is talking about. The actual tests were practically identical to the practice tests. In fact, sometimes I felt the tests were almost insulting to my intelligence... as if he doesn't expect us to be able to do problems we haven't seen before. This is a prep for calculus, not Drone-in-Training 101. Learn to think!

He is a good teacher but he is tricky and throw curve balls inhis tests. I will ot be taking him again due to the fact that he does not review prior to exams, will give you a sample test to work on and the real tests do not resemble the sample making you waste your time.
