STAT 1020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

A great teacher who is very eager about his job. He takes his time to explain the course work and sometimes runs out of time but he is awesome. He lets students interact and learn from each other. He does not make exams difficult. As a matter of fact this is one of the easiest classes I ever had. TAKE HIM. You wont regret it

STA1020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B-

Very Nice guy. Absolutely Horrible teacher. He makes no sense when he talks, he backtracks constantly which makes him hard to follow. Shows up 10 minutes late regularly.He does not use his time in class well. He uses up the whole time & asks if the class can stay over time b/c he didn't get through everything.Horrible, horrible teacher.DO NOT TAKE!

STA1020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

A very nice, smart guy, but he was a bad teacher. He tries to be helpful, though. Taking notes in his class is impossible since he'll drift from one place to another place, backtrack, then on to a random tangent. Unorganized, postpones tests unexpectedly, has games at inopportune times (cutting into final exam time, for instance).

STA1020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Stay away from learning stats with Rosen if you did not do well with it in high school. He's nice and postpones tests, but does activities at the worst times! He showed up 15 mins late to the final and still did one. He doesn't teach clearly, but will go the extra mile to help. He says words like "oopsy" and "boo boo." I feel like I'm in preschool.

stat 1020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Most disorganized teacher i have ever had. he is a nice guy but I didn't learn anything in the class. I had to read the book b/c he was hard to follow as he jumps from one topic to another. attendance was required and told us he would add 1or2% to our grade if we attended regularly, well that didn't happen. doesn't keep his words! avoid if you can.

he's a really good guy. hes very nice in person and his class is not bad. just gives a lot of hw thats the only thing I didnt like. he's really sweet and to everyone complaining about postponing exams, he only suggests that and confirms that its okay with all the students which is awesome. he's just being flexible and giving more time to study.

STAT101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Had us proofread the textbook he was writing and read his thesis, unprofessional. Insisted on taking attendance at the end of class, but was so disorganized it took him 15 minutes to do it. I was constantly late to the class I had after and as a normally prompt person this infuriated me. Do not take a class within 20 minutes of the end of this one!

STA1010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Mr. Rosen is a wonderfully kind and energetic man. He says hello to every student in the class room individually every morning. Unfortunately, he's also horribly disorganized which prevents his teaching from being effective. Book is useless and for hwk only. As much as I enjoy him as a person I would not recommend taking this class.

Stats1020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I really enjoyed this professor. I took this class as a repeat. The last prof I had never did any examples or took questions, all he did wa lecture from the book. Prof Rosen gives plenty of examples, workshops and practice exams. If you review these you will ace his class. Yes he does go off on tangents but overall he knows what he's talking about.

STA1020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This man is all over the place. He has no lesson plans and teaches subject matter off the top of his head. Sometimes he teaches and sometimes he doesn't. HE DOESN'T TEACH WITH THE BOOK ~_~ He will teach you something completely different from your homework! I would strongly advise you not to take this class!

Consistently unorganized, unprofessional. Changes exam dates and grading on a whim. Don't expect feedback in a timely manner. What should be relatively easy concepts are complicated with convoluted examples.
