Math 1118 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Very hard prof. Tests were super hard. There was no way to prepare for the quizzes or exams because all the problems were harder and different than the homework and he does not curve. Would not take another course from him.

Math 840 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He gives good information during his lectures, but if you ask for clarification on a test he is vague and normally grades against you on it. Attendance is something he does not budge on if you have family issues. He also has a bad attitude. I would advise against taking his classes.

His lectures are great, he is brilliant and witty. His tests are very challenging -they are conceptually based, but the curve is generous enough that if you put the work in and have some math ability, you will do well. It is not an easy class by any means, but you will understand calculus when you get thru with it.

math2222 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I took him for diff eq, multivariable and algebra 2. Me and all of my friends agree that J-Gow is the best teacher ever. Guy's a genius. He gives great lectures and is always cool at office hours. His tests are crazy hard though. But he's always been fair about grading in the end. If you want to slack off don't go to inver to begin with.

MATH1133 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

The bottomline in his class is that you understand the fundamental concepts very well. If you are the student who thinks math is all about mastering the problem solving techniques/rules, you will be in for a rude shock. He is very helpful and genuinely cares, but is not a math nanny or a math baby sitter.

Math1128 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Took his calculus class, and the class took a lot of work. The homework was not part of the tests. There was no way to prepare for tests. He doesn't care if you fail. My class started with 25 people and finished with 8 people. I took the class again with a different teacher and aced the same course. Don't take his class, you'll save time and money.

Math1133 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I don't know why my last comment that I posted last week is disappeared. I just said the truth about this mean teacher. Do I make a mistake or I cannot say the right thing about teacher here. I just want to say, he is really mean to students and don't want his student succeed. Do not take his class, otherwise you will regret to do that.

MATH940 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Did not like him at all! hes extremely bad at explaining things, which, last time i checked, is basically what teaching is! Cannot relate to his students at all when they are asking questions. Very boring class. hes very arrogant and does not want to help anyone out.
