His lectures were to make us understand the concept and the theory. Examples were presented that made the theory clear. Great guy to speak to, friendly and ready to clarify any question we had. Want to learn how to learn? take him

Mathematics is not an easy subject, but he explained the topics very clearly. Made us work hard, and at the end I learned a lot. Need more teachers like him.

I don't know why everyone is rating him so low. He's actually a really good professor and he cares about his students. He's very helpful and you can tell that he really wants you to understand the material. He's very fair... just don't be lazy.

This guy is a really good professor but his exams and "take home quizzes" are kinda hard. He is very helpful though and you will learn a lot. He also goes into things deeper than most and he is really big on you understanding the concept. I would recommend if you have a light load. Funny and cool guy but he can be hard on you too.

Don't waste your time on the x-tra credit paper-Pointless. Does not explain subject well, he is also not very helpful, doesn't reply to emails, and was not there to tutor(help) like he says he is. Don't take him, drop him early if you're struggling early....Waste of time.....

He teaches well and is willing to help. However, his tests are ridiculously difficult. He did not curve the class when only 6 out 25 students passed (C or better) his test. The class is passable IF this is your only class or your only difficult class

professor Mark gave us a challenge. Was not easy but doable. Math is not my strongest field of study have straggled with it, but professor Mark was very helpful and explain very well. I did not get an A and the grade I got was accordingly to my time spent for the topic. If you want to learn, take him. Pass? Study.

His tests are kind of hard, you have to make sure you study your notes/book ahead of time. Most of the problems come from class lecture and he is always willing to help. Homework is optional, and he gives extra credit on the tests.

Tough professor. Exams are difficult and you have to study very hard. Everything he emphasizes is going to be on the exam so make a note of it and learn it inside and out. He has very high expectations for his students.
