Teacher is very sarcastic. I think he could of been more helpful in class. He did not give enough quizzes or test. By the time we had a quiz or test several chapters had gone by and he did not do a good job reviewing. The second part of the class lecture was done and we were on our own, while he played with iphone or ipad.

math110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

As long as you read the material in the book, his lecture will be easy to understand. He's always at the T-marc ready to help. If you take some time to do the homework and understand it, you'll do well in the class.

Man where does this guy come from? His reviews for quizzes and exams are useless. Every quiz and exam I took were nothing but Ds and Fs.

Oh my gosh. He doesn't explain anything! he doesn't show you how to do the problems. He doesn't go over the homework/tests. He doesn't answer questions effectively. I do NOT recommend him

He's okay and pretty cool as a person. But the class itself, Eh. Just something about his teaching style didn't work for me. I understood the lectures and all, but it's like the info just does NOT stick. He won't coddle you, as he shouldn't have to, but he could try to be more approachable. Not recommended unless you're a math person.

I am currrently taking him for math 50 and this guy is just not as clear as I expected him to be. He tends to rush when lecturing and I sometimes get confused. Overall, he is full of lots of crazy humor, lol.

Hes a decent teacher, alot of dry humor, you would need to study to get a good grade. He tries to help but it is ultimately up to you to commit to the class. He wont give you any slack if you don't make the points. I could have gotten a higher grade if I studied more but i was too lazy. YOU need to study to get a good grade for sure!!!

He's a great professor, dry sense of humor, and his lectures are real simple and easy to understand if you attend class at all times. If you study all his quizes, you'll pass his exams.
