Dr Fall is an excellent mathematician and a great teacher. Take him if you want to learn. Thank you for a great class and congratulations on the new baby.

IM nice, The reason why his class sucks is that he is so LAZY. I went from having A in Calc 1 to having D in Calc 2. IT is impossible to understand him and he do a good job of explaining the overall meaning of his topics. Lecture is him literally just selecting few problems and doing it. He does not tell u the trick or the method he is using.

Basically teaching myself calc two. I've discovered that I do better in the class if I don't attend lecture and study on my own. If you choose to take him, you should set aside a lot of time for math, just saying.

He is NOT as bad as others claim he is. Honestly, people complain because they expect to get an A without trying in the class. Sorry people, this is college, not high school. He is a very good mathematician and he has a deep understanding of the subject. He makes mistakes once in a while, but hey, who doesn't. Overall very pleased.

Absolutely unprofessional. I'm not math oriented and need to have extra help from tutors etc to fully understand the material and Fall never replied to my emails, and never addressed a major issue with the course homework website not working properly after students emailed him multiple times. Another example of the terrible professors at mason.

Fall was a terrible teacher. His accent is pretty thick and hard to understand. He could barely solve his own example problems. The youtube videos of other math teachers on xyz was more helpful than him. He was late to most classes. If you can teach yourself then you could be okay. Go to class bc he uses variations of his in-class examples.

Completely apathetic and disrespectful; goes over problems incorrectly, doesn't show up to class without notifying students, makes tests harder than hw, doesn't always give study guides, hard grader, very defensive, thick accent, unknown grading scale, taught myself by the book. DON'T TAKE HIM!

He IS as bad as everyone makes him out to be. Class average was a 66%. He doesn't provide clear instruction on how to do problems which makes independent studying morr of trying to figure out the process of how to solve the problems rather than problem solving itself. He often reviews things that are not on the test during test reviews.

Terrible teacher. Average for each test given this semester was below 70 with the first test having an average of 30. He has skipped office hours on me several times and has been caught being unable to solve the answers on the tests he gives. Avoid if possible.

He really isn't as bad as everyone says he is. He explains things clearly and is straight forward. You just have to study hard. Get used to it.

Probably one of the worst, most unprepared professors I have taken at mason. He doesn't help when asked (beats around the bush) and is incapable of solving his own problems. I would avoid this professor at all costs

Absolutely horrible! I never write a review about a professor, but I felt I had to for Professor Fall. He is impossible to understand and heeasily gets confused with what he teaches. The class has barely have enough time to even complete the tests! Avoid at all costs!

Worst professor I think I've ever had. Can't actually do a problem on the board without having to think about it for a good 10 minutes then gets an answer and goes back to make the parameters fit his answer. I've never seen a teacher more unprepared for a class than he is. Has no idea what he's talking about.

If u can teach urself math and dont want to go to class. it is the class for u. if not well DONT TAKE fall. He don't know how to teach and communicate effectively. Personally, I think he needs to go back to teaching school to learn how to teach. However, his tests are not hard if you know your stuff. The homeworks are fairly hard.

Very average professor. You need to study because there are only 15 questions on each exam except the final. Study his notes but also review graphs from the textbook and you should be ok for the exams. The final was difficult. His study guides aren't that helpful. homework was a lot harder than tests. Will curve at end of sem if class avg is low.

Difficult to understand b/c of his accent, & he isn't very good at explaining things, either. I took Calc 1 in high school & aced it (I'm also a mathematically oriented person), but I ended up with a C in his class because he doesn't curve and is bad at explaining. He certainly isn't the worst teacher out there, but I would avoid him if possible.

You are better off staying in your dorm and reading the textbook. He consistently messes up and gets stuck in his own problems and lectures. He is a harsh grader and gives only 4 tests and 5 hws. Overall, avoid him at all costs.

Fall was a terrible teacher. I previously had calc and he managed to confuse me more about the subject. Simply a terrible professor. If you end up in his class I wish you luck

If I could give this professor a 0% on every aspect, I would. Djiby Fall is the worst professor I have ever had. He does not answer ANY questions, you can not understand a word he says he goes fast the homework is ridiculously hard the tests are short so if you miss two questions you virtually fail. If you want to pass Calc DO NOT TAKE HIM!!!!!!!!!

First-off Calc is different than all other math courses. I suggest you watch some youtube videos and patrickjmt.com before and during the course. Prof Fall does a great-ob going through problems, but ask questions if you want explanations. Take time to do the hw, and study your notes. I got an A and focused on examples from his notes. go to review
