MTH 230 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

His class isn't the easiest. The tests are really hard and his surprise quizzes are a nightmare! He is a little harsh on the partial credit, and takes off points for little procedural things. However, he is pleasant to learn from, and he teaches the material thoroughly. His presentation is enhanced by his dry wit; he is actually pretty funny.

MTH230 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

The worst prof. at MU. DO NOT TAKE HIM PERIOD! He does not follow university policy and is very rude. His tests are longer than they should be, even if you know the material better than him you can't finish on time. Makes you come to class on random days. Don't miss class, he won't accept university excused absences. Headed towards a grade appeal.

MTH 230 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Great professor! Very fair, just do the work and don't whine. He is super organized too, which no one seems to be at Marshall. Gave us all the hw problems the first day of class!

MTH130-108 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

His quizs are easy. His tests are not difficult if you read the textbooks before. I don't do any homework he gave me but I could get A. Textbooks are important!

MTH 130 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Horwitz is awful. I love math, but being in his class made me want to switch majors. His test are hard. Gives little to none partial credit. Smart but he can't teach. Barely passed his class with a C.

MTH 130 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Horwitz is a nice guy but he does not explain things very well. He confused me on things that I originally understood. If you're already good at math then you will probably be alright.

MTH230 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He was absolutely the worst professor I've ever had. He was completely rude. He, also, did not let me make things up because I missed and had an excuse. I would NOT recommend anyone take him. Take Cuisick instead. He's much better.

Professor Horwitz is alright, but he could use a little bit more clarity in his lectures.

MTH 331 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Worst professor I have ever had. He spent the entire class going over proofs which he rarely finished correctly. We stayed in the classroom 10 minutes late every day. After only seeing proofs in class, the test (which was 10+ pages long) included no proofs. We were expected to apply the theorems which he had incorrectly "proven" with no example

Dr Horwitz is awful. His tests are tough, he gives little to no partial credit. Class always goes over five minutes making other students late for classes. He tries to schedule class outside of official class time and frowns upon those who don't attend. He's putting material on our final that we haven't even gotten to because he moved too slow!
