Al-Niemi is the man! He is such a great teacher who was always willing to offer help if needed! The tests and quizzes were not too hard, if you understood the lecture and homework problems you will do great on the tests! TAKE HIM, and he is funny which was an added bonus!

Precalculus Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B+

Exactly the professor you need for precalculus. It is far from an easy class, yet Professor Alniemi is very helpful and makes the class very enjoyable. He loves to see students taking their studies seriously and working very hard, a great quality in a professor. He prepared us well for the tests and made me want to go to class. Overall, 10/10.

Calc221 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Al-Niemi was one of the best professors I have ever had. He does have a slight accent but that is a non-factor. Very understanding, very helpful. He will push back assignments if you need extra time and provides more than enough examples. He will also talk you through problems if necessary, punctual grader. I highly recommend this professor.

Professor Naman is one of the best professors I have had at the University of Akron by far. He is very clear in what he expects, always willing to help and genuinely cares about his students. His class went by very quickly because of his outgoing personality and sense of humor. I can't recommend him enough!!!

Calc1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

If you want a good calc1 professor to start off your year, this is the guy to get. I can not recommend him enough. He gives extra credit before every test and you have quizzes every week. The tests and quizzes are simple and are taken straight out of the notes and homework, with maybe a couple numbers changed. He is always willing to help you out.

Cal02 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I took this professor for Cal I, The class was fairly easy, he does not ask much other than quizzes on Fridays and tests every 3 weeks, however I found the class to be very boring, the only thing he does is write on his board from notes he took of the book, it gets pretty dull, Text book isn't really required he does give extra credit before tests

He is very knowledgeable. He's a great teacher, he goes through each concept in great depth through examples and problems. He has a slight accent which takes a few days to get used to. He is very flexible when we plan tests and quizes and homework, I would suggest him

ClAlg145 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I had him for college Algebra and the class was fairly painless. The only issue is we had to do our homework on Connect Math, which really blows and is time consuming. However, this was out of his hands entirely I'm assuming. Also, don't buy the book the university tries to sell you, considering all of the homework is online, I didn't use it once.
