085681 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A
"Skip class? You won't pass." "Tough Grader" "Lectures are long"

This professor has an inconsistent grading technique. He not only talks in a monotoned voice the whole class but also is completely unclear as to what his expectations are. If you want to pass do not take any class with him.

He has high expectations and treats us like adults. You need to do the work but it is interesting and for a math class it is easy.

MAth 141 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Countless hours of homework. You have to do every example out of the textbook. One of the worst teachers in my entire academic career. Grades each homework and take points of for wrong answers. Talks in monotone for 2 hours and does not explain a thing. Expects very much out of everyone. Grades like an english profesdsor.

Math 141 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Difficult grader, lots of homework, 8 hours a week! Unclear lessons. You will not learn in this class unless you teach yourself and use tutors. DO NOT take classes with this professor. One of the worst teachers I've had. Grades every homework for individual answers. Takes points off for everything wrong. Will not explain anything. Too much work!

Math 141-03 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

If you are good at teaching yourself math and learning completely out of the textbook than his classes are for you. Expect at least 8 hours of homework a week and don't expect for him to do much in class.

Math 141 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Grades like he is an English professor (very tough). Is often unclear, and indirect about directions. HOURS of homework that most people don't even understand how to approach. During class, all he does is stand in front of the board and talks in his monotone voice for 2 hrs.

Yeh, like math is supposed to be easy. Professor Degenkolb has high expectations and if you do what he asks you will learn a lot and get a good grade. But if you are looking for an EASY A, look elsewhere.

Great professor. Really wants his students to do well. Fair grader. Attend study sessions, he gives 5 extra participation points for each one you go to. Lecture can be a bit dry but it was a great class.

MATH 141 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Prof. Degenkolb is a very nice guy. The textbook is used a LOT,(reading quizzes, homework problems). Exams are straightforward as are the short projects. Overall, I thought that he was fair in regards to the easiness/hardness of the course. He didn't let the slackers slide (which was refreshing). If you want to learn sbout Stats, take his class.

Great math class. Requires work to learn which not every one appreciates but he does his part and you got to do yours if you want to get a good grade.

Marh 141 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Very good instructor. He always talks in a calm and reasoned tone (some people call it monotonous) but his passion for for teaching and math and science is obvious. He always takes the time to answer questions and help anyone who asks. True he almost never gives 100's but 99 is still an A and almost half the class got A's its that easy.

Honestly the worst instructor I've ever had in my life. Not very clear, gives a ton of work for a 100 level stats class and "nobodys perfect so you cannot get a 100 on anything" I wish I would have gone on here before enrolling. Overall horrible oh yeah and hes severely monotoned.

Charles is a hillarious guy. He is very friendly and is willing to help all of his students. He expects a lot from his students but it is for your own good. If you do the work you will definitely learn some math and get a good grade.

Charles is a great teacher. He covers exactly is on the syllabus so you know what to expect from day 1. If you ask him he slows down and he always takes time to answer questions. This is a math class and it requires work to learn the material and get a good grade, so slackers hate him.

MATH141 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is a rather hippie looking older professor who loses his train of thought often, whips through the slides in his lectures and often his work on the board is corrected by students in the class. He is hard to follow and grades harshly and takes off severe points for grammar errors.

Professor Degenkolb isn't easy to follow. He goes to the slides way to fast and doesn't answer questions. I have taught myself out of the book for the entire semester and have only managed to get a high C, low B grade. If you take Intro to Stats with him and have no prior statistics knowledge, plan to be at the Math Center A LOT.
