Math131 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

By far the best math professor I've had at Loyola. I took calc 1 in high school and it was 10x harder than this class. He explains things very well and the quizzes and exams were a breeze. Take him!

Pretty cool guy who is willing to help. Calc isn't easy so go to class and pay attention. There is a quiz every week but they arent too bad. Probably the best Math teacher I had in college

MATH 132 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Greicius is absolutely brilliant. The class is not easy, but he encourages students to come to office hours. The weekly quizzes help you to stay on track with the material. His exams aren't too hard, but studying is required. When in his class, it truly felt as though I was in the presence of a genius! I highly recommend Aaron Greicius!

MATH 132 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Really good professor, not all that hard. The class can be a lot of work at times, but then it is calc. He posts his powerpoints online, which are helpful for exams. Attendance isn't technically mandatory, but he gets upset when people miss class (a problem on the first exam was about something he mentioned in class and wasn't in any of the PPTs)

Math 132 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

His lectures are clear and organized, but quizzes and exams can be difficult. He doesn't allow calculators on exams yet throws in confusing fractions. He doesn't offer much help if you ask a question about the homework.

Math 131 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: B-

Dr. Greicius is a pretty decent professor overall. If you've taken calculus in high school or at a previous school, you should be fine. If you haven't, it's quite difficult and will take a lot of work to do well. Take the quizzes seriously as a good average will compensate for one poor test grade (all quizzes are weighed the same as one test).

MATH162 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is not a horrible teacher. He really wants you to understand the material and is very helpful. Sometimes his explanations are long and confusing, but it's calculus...

MATH 132 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Lecture is just the easiest of concepts of the homework. Misses a lot of the concepts we need to actually complete the homework. Gets annoyed if you ask a question. Snaps back if you don't know the answer to a question. Lectures are dry. Uses powerpoints. I used the book more than his lectures because he's not good at teaching. Pretty bad teacher.

Math 162 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He is a very smart man and obviously has a passion for the subject. This class is not at all easy and it really requires time with the homework and studying. He is a generous grader on weekly quizzes (every Wednesday) and on exams. he did have an attitude at times and would not be willing to explain a concept because it would not be on the quiz.

MATH 162 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

11 weekly quizzes (takes best 9), 2 exams, and a final. He makes them tough, but he hands out partial credit VERY generously. Not an easy A, but he's a good guy. He's always willing to do classwork when he notices a popular confusion with the material. I would recommend.

Amazing math teacher! I've always needed a good math teacher and this guy was really effective. I had to previously drop calc because I had a bad teacher, but when I had this class, it was so different! I actually enjoyed math! Quizzes once a week (easy), tests aren't bad either. There is also wileyplus homework. He is very helpful-Take him!!

Very reasonable workload and tests/quizzes are accurate reflections of what you learn in class. Really nice guy who seems to care a lot about the students' understanding of the material. He gives examples until the concept is clear and is laid back and approachable if you have questions. Extremely handsome as well, overall take him if you can!

Calc132 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

A very pleasant and fun teacher; explains material clearly and patiently. Very helpful in his office hours, but usually rushes in between his classes. you need to attend his classes, take weekly ok quizzes,participate in group work, ask questions, do practice tests before exams. Wiley + hwk is easy, but annoying.

He's a cool guy. I like him as a person, but not so much as a professor. He's willing to help students who go to his office hours A LOT. Aside from that, he won't be of much help. So if you take him, make sure you can go to his office hours. Also, this class just plain sucks. Take Goebel if you can, but he hardly ever teaches it.

Great teacher, very energetic and involved. Goes to great lengths to break down complicated concepts. Quizzes are a gimme if you attend class, online homework is a bit quirky, but easy enough. Tests are straight forward, no trick questions, no compound logic. Also can speak english properly, which many math professors at loyola cannot!
