Math511 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He is most definitely the worst professor I have ever had. This class should have been straight-forward, but he made it so much more difficult that it had to be. Obviously inexperienced.

Calc306 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

klagsbrun is a young and inexperienced lecturer who makes it far more difficult than needed. Without the curve, most of the class would not have received passing grades. He likes to introduce important material very close to midterm/final exams. He said he feels he needs to winnow the chaff, even tho 211 is not a mathematics track class.

Calc211 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Zev has no idea what he is doing. Despite getting an A in his class, his tests are completely challenging and cause you to believe you have failed as you walk out. However, Dimou was a great t.a. and really made a difference.

The professor speaks clear english which is nice. The only problem is he is not clear on any material. I have had to go on Youtube to watch material on what he taught in class. I would recommend taking this class with a different professor.

calc211 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Extremely confusing... Made finding the slope sound like the most complex task in the world. Makes lots of mistakes in class. Talks more about the concepts than actually showing us how to apply them. Homework is terribly long every time and only grades a few problems. Would suggest not taking his class until he gets much more experience.

Math541 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor went through the material very quickly in class and had high expectations for the midterms. His grading was initially harsh but the final was substantially easier and he was more helpful in class towards the end of the semester. I agree that he obviously has never taught before. He assumes his students are as smart as him.

Extremely difficult grader, to the point where I'd recommend not taking one of his courses. When a course is offered all the time and the average grade in the other sections are a B or higher, it's very annoying having my GPA trashed because he feels like being a tough grader. Ruined my interest in algebra.

As an honors student who loves learning, Zev's class ruined all of that. He will make you feel inadequate for asking questions. He hardly hands out any partial credit, even for almost right answers and grades only 2 or 3 HW problems, so if you spend hours doing it and get 1 wrong, you're already in trouble. You can tell he has never taught before.
