MAC1105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: WD

The worst teacher I've had at SPC. This was the first class I've had to drop. He doesn't explain the problems, he expects you to already know what your doing. He rambles on and on about unimportant topics other than Math. Do not take this class.

Take this professor if you are good in math. He knows his stuff, he's just not that good at explaining some of it at times. He is a very laid back and easy professor.

He is awesome, I had him twice in highschool and I just had him in college. I wish I could take all math through him. He breaks down the material. I wish more professor were more like him. I recommend big time.

Mac1140 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I used to be in love with math but after having him I hated going to his class. We will do 15 minutes of notes and the rest he expect us todo our home works!!! If you ask a question he gets mad and frustrated, I would have filedbhis class if he didn't give us the pretest ahead of time. I'm glad I'm done with his class. It was awfullllll

MAT1033 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Mr. Perry puts out a pre-test one week prior to the test that is extremely helpful in taking the test. Mr. Perry is an extremely nice person, unfortunately he allows students to lay around his class, be mouthy , put there feet on the desk. It was extremely frustrating for an adult student who is there to learn. Mr. Perry also goes to quickly and does not explain each step. I passed with a better grade then I expected just a high frustration level in the class.

Besides the fact he goes off in to story time, hes EASY! If you do all of his homework and copy all of the notes on the board you'll understand it. Plus he's always help you after or before class. IF YOU come to all of his classes and have an A average through out the semester YOU DONT HAVE TO take his final.

MAC1114 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

High school teacher in real life and teaches like a combination of that and grandpa at Christmas. Notes are direct copies from the text and he does not expound on them. He veers during his lecture from material to stories about the Bucs and his life's challanges in a very disruptive manner.

Very nice guy, I would drink a beer with him and shoot the**** about the Bucs and whatnot, but I dont care for his teaching style one bit. I actually feel a bit dumber every time I go to class.

I didn't really like his teaching style BUT he did make this class very easy. For each test he gave us a practice test the week before & allowed us to use a 3x5 cheat sheet. Then with perfect attendance & an A average, you can exempt his final exam. Definitely recommend him for an easy A. He's a pleasant fellow too.

MAT1117 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

The only thing I wanted to have done was for him to spend more time on application and alot less on the theory. I didn't really care much for the 3 pages of notes that didn't help me solve my homework. after which we had barely 10-15 minutes to apply a few examples. It wasn't enough, class needs more sample notes, not 3pages of trigonometric theory

He doesn't know how to explain the material and he expects you to know it before hand. Basically, I had to teach myself the material.

Trig1234 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

If you pay attention, quit texting on your phone, and do the work (it is college) you will do great. Took him for trig and he did a great job. If you have trouble with learning from this guy you have a long road ahead.

Gets sidetracked too easily. He doesnt explain the work too well, I had to go back and teach myself from the book. He makes the class interesting only because he talks about nascar and everything BUT algebra. He's a funny guy though

If you want to talk about the Bucs and the Rays for the 1st half of class take him. If you want to learn the material and pass your state exam (i took elem. algebra) pick a different teacher.

Mr. Perry is a great instructor. He assumes that students know the Pythagorean Theorom, but that should be expected out of a COLLEGE TRIGONOMETRY CLASS. If you are going into this class not knowing how to simplify or rationalize fractions, maybe you should be in a lower-level course. It's not his fault that some students don't know basic math.
