Math 211 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Bob is the best. He plays guitar and sings in class, is a super lenient grader, and is chill - what more could you ask for in a calculus professor? Having some background in calculus will really help you in his class. He does cover quite a bit of material during the semester, but he has a few days per unit put aside for practice and questions.

Math211 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

Bob is seriously the best math teacher I have ever had at COC! He really loves what he does and his class is so laid back. I love that he welcomes questions and will take as much time as the class needs to understand the material. Bob's test aren't too difficult but studying is suggested. Homework quizzes are a bit tougher though.

Math070 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Bob Tolar is, by far, the best math professor at COC. He makes learning algebra fun and as easy as it can be. He hasa reat way of explaining the subject and his tests are far and are directly related to what he taught. I would recommend him for any math class you have to take!

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

Bob is a great teacher he goes over material really well, but constantly jumps around. He is a good instructer but makes his tests a tad bit difficult. He doesn't grade your homework, but gives out homework. If you didn't do one problem your basically going to get a bad grade on homework. Tests are difficult

He is the best math prof. at COC his tests are hard but he grades easy as long as you have shown your work. Ask for practice exams from him they will help, and always do your homework, he has a homework quiz and calculator quiz. He even sings on occasion.
