Math1314 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This teacher at one time probably taught well. Our class he did nothing but talk about the same thing for 3 weeks and the rest of the time about his grandkids. Not focused at all. No help teaching the material, it became a teach yourself class

MATH 1332 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Terrible, terrible teacher. Very unclear with what he is teaching and takes forever to get to a point. Constantly gets sidetracked, and avoids answering questions. He is not helpful at all in your learning and makes the material harder than it should be. Avoid this professor.

If you need college mathematics what ever you do do nit pick this professor. He barely knew what he was teaching, very hard to understand anything my entire class failed.

Why this individual is teaching is beyond me. In all honesty I would not let this guy run a hotdog cart. DO NOT take this professor.

MATH 1324 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

HORRIBLE. The only reason I took him is because the other prof offered was rated even worse. This prof doesn't stay on topic, if you try to get him back on topic he's really rude about it. He goes into great detail about things that don't matter like how to change decimal into percent. He takes up a lot of class time avoiding the actual coursework.

MTH 1314 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He draws off-topic almost daily and spends way too much time going over a single question, I highly suggest you take another professor.

DROP THIS CLASS!!!! you WILL fail. He is a good guy, but just cannot teach to save his life. If you ask him a question he will laugh and avoid it. He is an expert at avoiding questions.

math1314 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Not very good at keeping your attention and if you want to learn it's gonna have to be from the book on your own time. Just stick with it and you will pass if you attend class regularly and are respectful towards him and try to stay involved. He is a nice guy and does what he can to help you out when final grades are due. Just stick with it.

Math1314 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Okay so it's november 9 and we have had one test, which my entire class failed. He has been teaching us the same thing for 6 weeks and im still clueless! I asked for help after class and it turned out in argument. Seriously he is miserable, I leave class mad every single day.

AVOID!! This professor is horrible. I would not advise anyone to take him. He does not teach anything and when he tries he even gets his own problem wrong. His test are impossible and he is very boring. He's always late to class and is rude to students who ask questions.

He tries his hardest to teach, but he's one of those teachers who knows too much information so he just rambles on and on and so never makes any sense! Can't really say whether the tests were easy are hard because I dropped him. If you aren't good at math it is highly recommended that you not get him.

MATH1316 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This professor is HORRIBLE!!!! He only gave three tests for the whole semester and they each had only 15 questions on them, so if you miss one question then pretty much fail. He doesnt answer questions and pretty much makes you teach yourself from the textbook. Also every class he shows up about 15 min late, even on the final. DONT take him!

terrible professor. i haven't learned anything from him because he can't teach! he constantly rambles on about nothing relevant to the class with his boring monotone voice and just about everyone in my class is failing. If you make the mistake of taking him make sure to read the textbook regularly because you surely will fail without it.

Horrible teacher! I'm not sure I learned anything from his class; he rambles on about completely unrelated topics for most of the class, and doesn't answer any questions.

Well he is old and spends most of the class rambling about a steam powered saw mill he worked at, airplanes, calculators, and stuff that has nothing to do with math. He shows up 5-12 minutes late.

Horrible attitude. He cannot stand having a student correct him even when he knows he is wrong. Does not know anything about business and is constantly trying to figure out the material during class. He rambles on for a hour when trying to explain one example problem. Stay away at all cost.
