12214 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A
"Lectures are long" "Tests are tough"

he's a horrible teacher. He's nice but ugh his exams are on a whole another level! His homeworks are easier than his exams. and the exams are nothing like the questions from the textbook.

Math 155 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A-

Hes definitely not a bad teacher, but sometimes I feel like he's just reading off the textbook. His exam questions are definitely not easy, but doable, and plus he gives extra points for doing corrections.Even though the class wasn't easy, his challenging selection of questions made me learn more.

Math 155 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A+

His tests are hard, but he prepares his students well for them by doing difficult examples in class and giving practice questions. He explains everything very clearly, and he's patient with questions. His homework is all online and can be time-consuming, but the questions are similar to test problems, so it's worth it to do the homework on time.

Ma 150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A+

He is a really helpful professor even though he gives out challenging questions. His hw was online and must purchase the e textbook in order to do the online hw. Do not buy/rent the physical textbook (unless he change giving online HW). He also givr you extra credit and point on the question you wrong on the test. (You must answer it correctly)

Math100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Most patient Math teacher/professor I have had.Does not make you feel dumb even if you are lol.Oh yeah and he loves Math like a lot.Very serious and professional. And he is adorable.Only thing is that he focused on answering the loud-mouths of the class and did not really give me and others space to ask questions.

MATH100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

THIS IS THE MOST PLEASANT AND MOST PATIENT PROFESSOR I HAVE EVER TAKEN. HE IS SUCH A GEM. THIS CLASS WAS A FAIRLY EASY ONE, BUT HE WAS VERY CLEAR IN EXPLAINING EVERY LITTLE DETAIL, EVEN IF OUR QUESTIONS SEEMED STUPID (BECAUSE THEY PROBABLY WERE). YOU CAN'T GO WRONG. TAKE MATH 100 WITH HIM. HE IS SO AWESOME AND NICE, AND CAPABLE!

Math633 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Getting really frustrated with this instructor... It's nice that he gives you 2 weeks to do his HW, but the problems that he assigned are much more advance than what he covered in class. Searching online for the whole day already, couldn't even finish 1 problem; and HW is 50% of your grade!

MATH633 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He cannot teach at all,even he understands the topics, so he copies or varies little from text!Exams are not hard by memorizing his review sheet;yet since the topics of math633 is not easy,so be ready to spend much more time working on memorizing!You learn nothing and it is totally wasting money and time,even he is very nice!!!
