calc2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He is a genius but his class is sooooo hard. He likes to make mistakes in purpose, goes very fast over material, and gives really hard exams. He give lots of definition in his exams as well. He is nice and helpful though, especially when you ask.

Calc 2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B+

Dr Gaur is one of the nicest teachers, he really cares about his students. However, his lectures were hard to follow. I had to rely on my background in calculus heavily. Make sure you study the definitions- if you get those right on tests he will grade the rest of the test easily. He also bumps grades for students who don't skip, and ask questions.

Calc 2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Nice man, but bad teacher. He is terrible with explanations. He would make mistakes in hope we'd catch them and not tell us he did until after he was done. Made examples too confusing to keep up with. Tests and quizzes were fine, you just have to be careful when he lectures. Advise against him, but not terrible if you have to have him.

MATH 111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He's a good professor who seems to have problems explaining some concepts. Very nice and helpful. He cares a lot about his students. I would say to take him if you have a decent background in Calculus.

MATH116 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is not an easy prof. and his accent is very thick but he is more than willing to help if you are willing to ask for it. Homework and class aren't manditory but HIGHLY recomended. Go to the class,go to his office hours, so the homework and maybe get a tutor and you will easily pass the class. Also, laugh at his jokes. It never hurts.

MATH115 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This guy really means well, but wasn't a suitable calc 1 prof. Took a college calc class in high school & still had couldnt follow him. Textbook was awful & his lectures were only helpful if you had a firm grasp on the concepts prior to class. Even tho hes hard to understand, he is very willing to help you & will give you the grade you deserve.

MTH225 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I took AP calc in highschool and without it I would definitely be lost in his class. I thought the class was really easy and if you try to do well and show up to every class he will at least give you a C. If you havent taken Calc before, it could be a struggle because he doesnt explain very well
