"There for you" "Hilarious"

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Patterson. He is without a doubt the best professor I have ever had. He is extremely helpful, answers pretty much all emails within about 20 minutes. He's also hilarious. The class is not really that hard. Parts of it are challenging, but as a whole it is very doable. You can't pick a better professor.

Math 196V Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. P really cares about his students and goes out of the way to make himself available to help them whenever help is needed. His assignments are difficult but completing them really does help understand the material which ultimately is the point of the class. This class definitely helped me in vector. Recommended.

MATH 196V Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: P

Dr. P is a great professor and an overall friendly guy. It is evident that he wants his students to succeed. He also has the ability to present difficult material in a way that is very accessible and understandable. I can tell just from 196V (1-unit vector SI class) that he is an excellent instructor... I wish I would have had him for vector!

Math 315 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. P is the best teacher I've ever had! He loves math and he cares deeply about the success of all his students. His classes are by no means easy, but you will learn a TON. He's just one of those teachers that make you want to care about school and work really hard. Any class with Dr. P is well worth your time and money :)

MATH223 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Probably the best math teacher I've ever had. He makes class interesting and worth attending daily. I don't think I can say anything negative about him, except that he seemed to make the class harder than other professors; though this only means you'll learn the material better (we scored higher than the honors section on the final as a class).

Definitely take the 196V supplementary vector calculus class if you can. Dr. P is such an amazing teacher. I owe my A to his teaching skills. I aced the final thanks to him. BEST TEACHER OF ALL TIME EVER

Such a great teacher. Vector is a hard class, but Dr. P explains everything really well and gives lots of extra credit opportunities. He definitely makes an intimidating class veyr manageable.

MATH223 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

The exams and assignments are very difficult (not unreasonable), and a significant amount of work is required to get a good grade. However, Dr.P makes sure that anyone who seeks assistance gets it in a timely fashion, and maintains a very light and friendly classroom environment making it easier to ask questions during lecture. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

MATH233 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This is the best professor I have ever had! He expects a lot from all of his students and is hands down the hardest vector calc teacher at UA. That being said math is his passion and he will do everything in his power to help you to succeed in such a difficult course. I attended office hours biweekly and they were highly beneficial.

MATH223 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Best Math teacher I have ever had at UofA. He completely dedicates himself to his job. I got a C in both Calc 1 and 2, and partly because of this man I pulled a high B in Vector Calc. He has a killer method of teaching and managing the class. His exams are reasonable and prepare you very well for the dept final. Final was a joke, got a 93% on it.

Dr. P is the man. He will work you to death, but you will actually learn a lot from him. He is very interested in his students and actually cares about your performance in his class. His explanations are good, and he's always willing to help you with questions.

Dr P is unbelievably good at his job and is the best teacher you'll ever have. That said, vector calc is tough and his section is even harder. Be prepared to work, but expect an enjoyable semester if you put in the effort.

Great professor. Vector is tough but his clear explanations and methods towards approaching math are exceptional. His exams are hard but reasonable and you will no doubt learn and destroy the common exam which is a breeze.

Dr P has to be one of the best math professors at the UA. He makes you work hard, but he is also very willing to help you learn difficult material. If he taught Diff EQ, Id pick him next semester

Dr. P is by far the best professor I have had the fortune to meet! Not only is he one of the clearest, helpful, and funniest teachers on campus, his dedication to the students is absolutely phenomenal. When I took my first exam for the class, they were graded and returned to me the NEXT DAY. 70 exams graded in one day; THAT is pure dedication.

He is very good at teaching the subject, and has a good sense of humor. He also remembers all of his students' names, which is nice. However, expect to study extremely hard for his exams, as they are a KILLER.

Very difficult professor because he expects too much out of his students,especially on the exams, so an A is almost impossible. Great teacher in terms of teaching though.
