Math 9 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Very difficult and demanding class. You will have to spend a lot of time solving problems that seem impossible, but he will always help you promptly whenever you email him a question. Don't be discouraged after screwing up a test, the grading at the end (final grade) is very forgiving and fair.

Math22 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Professor Pavitch is the best. He makes the class more like society, in order to survive in this class, you have to put a lot of efforts. He never uses the book, but you have to read every chapters word by word, and understand all of the proofs provided in book or in ur notes. Attention: his warning on the first day of the class is very important.

MA 9 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This was a terrible instructor. As already mentioned, his exams were unreasonably difficult since there were items on the tests he didn't go over in class. He seemed to have the attitude that if you fail, you were never meant to be in the class. DO NOT TAKE HIM.

MATH10 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He was a good professor, and all his stuff is very challenging, similar to what you'd get at MIT. He claims that he doesn't curve, yet I got an A even though I knew I had a solid B after all my exams. Extremely helpful when you approach him for help. The class itself is hard, so if you don't like proofs or thinking logically, change your major.
