MATH105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

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.

MATH 105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

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.

Math 110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

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!

MATH 110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

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.

Math592 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

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.

MATH120H Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

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.

MATH120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

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.
