He is a good professor. He does have an accent, so some might have trouble understanding him sometimes, but he's usually very clear. Funny and all around good professor.

Dr. Calin is a sweetheart and I cannot recommend him highly enough. I was studying for the LSAT while in his class and he would help me with logic questions during his office hours. I never did homework and still earned an A in the class by attending and taking notes on the problems we did in class.

Required class, took it last because I'm horrible at math and I earned an A. Must have a knowledge of excel to do well, also a laptop is required. Did not use the textbook once. Homework consisted of coloring the spreadsheet and printed for next class. Take this prof!

This class is simply an easy A. If you hate math and really don't want to learn a bunch of equations, this is the class for you. Excel is used the entire semester and the assignments are easy. No homework.

Love this professor! One of the best I have ever had at EMU. Knows his stuff and is always willing to help. He wants you to learn.

Stochastic Calculus is a very useful class. His version of the class was all proofs. You will not know how to use Stochastic Calculus in your work. It will not help with the actuarial exams either. Take Stochastic Processes, you'll learn something useful and practical.

Great professor, as long as you don't have him for honors. He goes very in depth to proofs of theorems rather than teaching you how to do calculus. No homework, he does practice problems before each quiz, funny teacher and he's great at explaining stuff, as long as you have prior knowledge of materials you will need to prove the theorems.

The notes we took in class we not helpful in completing the homework, quizzes, or tests because the examples in class we a lot easier than what was assigned. I do not recommend this professor.

Very good teacher. Quizzes everyday but it's on the homework so it's basically a homework check. Gives practice exams prior to real exams to help you study. The real exams are harder though but definitely not that hard. He is very funny and you will laugh in his class.

Fun teacher, made jokes. Gave a quiz every week and 3 tests. The tests were quite hard but they were take home and he was an easy grader. Little hard to understand with his accent but definitely worth taking.

First, he is very funny! He always gives jokes, and one time he even brought a harmonica and sang to the class before the finals! I think he composed the song. Anyways, he is very direct with teaching, he explains the material well. He gives homework every day, but you don't have to turn it in. I suggest take him!

Sweetest man you ever met.Never raised his voice even when his voice was drowned out by other Prof. from neighboring rooms. He played his harmonica for the class to reduce stress levels before a test.

Lightning fast. Gives thorough notes, but avoids the idiosyncrasies that students often get hung up on. Dumbs the material down. Note: you must furnish your own questions if you expect to learn.

Pretty good all around. Seems to be learning as he goes but overall a good professor. You won't have to work hard to earn a good grade.

I took him in the spring. He's a genius and has an awesome accent. He is very easy to talk to and willing to help if you ask. Material was harder than I thought and we moved faster than I could learn most of the time but all in all he is a good teacher. He's really scary smart, take him if you can keep up! 1 test was super easy, 1 was super hard!

Very, very good professor. I never went to class and nearly got a perfect on the first three exams.And its not because im a genius, because im not. but its because he teaches really well and he makes sure you understand the material. Watch out for his final, its a harder than the rest, maybe because it was all proofs. def take him again
