Math 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A+

Best math teacher, hands down. If you do not like the way he teaches than you are probably staring at the wall or not paying attention. He explains the material thoroughly and clearly however, you still have to study outside of class in order to pass with a high grade. If I could, I would take him for every math til I transfer out of CRC.

He is super easy and super straight forward! He prints out notes for you to use and usually has the notes examples on the exams! (Which are only 10-12 questions) take him!

Rajinder LAL is one of the best professors I have had at CRC. He prints out the notes and goes through it step by step in class. He does go at a fast pace HOWEVER if you have a question or need him to slow down he will. In office hours he will not try to rush you out and does what he can to help you achieve the best grade you can. HIGHLYSUGGESTHIM

Math 125 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He's a cool and chill professor. I was intimidated by him at first but he was cool.He is Very Picky when it came to grading our quizzes and exams! That's the only negative thing about him. Explains everything and if you need clarifying he'll help you. All exams and quizzes are open questions, no scantron needed. Study for his exams!!

MATH 310 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: A+

unorganized, not real respectful to others trying to get understanding of the work. Had to teach myself and ask other professors in order to pass with a good grade. Avoid if possible for any class is my advice.

He's very helpful and is always asking if everyone understand before moving on. He gives handouts so that you don't have to use your own paper. He is very easy going and understanding. I would take a class with him again

Had Mr. Lal for math 30, a wonderful math teacher. If you need any extra help he is willing to help. Dropping by his office or emailing him. If you don't understand something he'll go over it until you do. Good @ posting you grade on line so you know where you stand in the class. Great teacher to have!!!!!!!!

MATH300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Good at laying out step by step how to do problems. Doesn't rush or skip steps. If students have questions he goes back, shows again on board & clarifies. Takes time to answer questions & very helpful during office hrs w/ questions on HW. Has a pessimistic perfectionist personality but I still took him twice because he helped me to understand math.

Math102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This class was extra hard. He goes through everything super fast and what we went through in class was not in the hmwk sometimes. The test were extremely hard and there was a pop quiz almost everyday. Not to mention that the final was impossible. I can say that he will try to help you during office hours. Wouldn't recommend taking this class.

Horrible teacher. I'm not a slacking student, I work very hard, but this professor makes everything difficult. Half the time he does not know what he's talking about. I taught myself the whole class. He will take off points for ridiculous things and often grades based on favorites, which was proved when we reported him to the Dean. Don't take him.

Trig335 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He hands out packets to use for notes and his lectures are clear.HOWEVER, he assigns WAY too much homework, his pop Quizzes are difficult and will bring down your grade.Tests are impossible; he teaches with the most basic examples in lecture but the test questions are the hardest possible example. UNLESS YOUR TAKING MINIMAL UNITS, DON'T TAKE HIM!

I hate this guy. He gives quizzes nearly every class period. He marks down your work on the test even if you still get the right answer. He wants to see every little freakin step of the equation. I have never had such an anal teacher about math work. He didnt help learn anything. I actually feel dumber. I hate this class

Professors like this are the reason people bring guns to school. He'll mark you down for the dumbest things, even if you understand the material. I had to teach myself. Don't waste your money like I did. P.S. THERE IS NO EXTRA CREDIT!

Kind of surprise when I saw these comments. This is college. Work & dont complain. You?ll finish your homework early. How would they know if his wrong if they dont either know the subject. He is helpfull if you approach. Lots of extra credit. Eliminate slackers. He is clear. I only ask him once. Recommended to "REAL" students.

He will mark you off points for any and every mistake you make, even when it doesn't affect the answer. He gives pop quizzes when he feels like people do not care about the class. Only take him as a last resort.
