"Participation matters" "Would take again" "Skip class? You won't pass."

This class was easy for me because i have a "do it yourself" mentality also not bad with math. If you struggle in math sit in the front and ask questions, participate. Over all great teacher i am looking forward to taking another one of his classes.

"Get ready to read" "Tests are tough" "Skip class? You won't pass."

I took his class in Fall 2014. Even though he is funny, his tests are hard! His tests reviews were not similar to the tests. His accent is not easy to understand. I would not recommend is class at all.

MATH 1316 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A+

Here’s the deal. Mr. Nwachukwu is a great teacher. Period. His jokes, parables, and life lessons are his way of keeping things light. He is very proud that he is from Nigeria and he will command you to “obey” him. Have fun with it. No HW. Tests are very similar to test reviews. Ask questions if you do not understand something...really! It’s OK!!!

Math 1314 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: C+

Horrible professor, difficult to understand. Doesn't like to do problems in the board. Goes with his own flow and expects you to understand. Likes to yell at his students and I mean yell. As well as ask you to obey him. Thinks he is teaching middle schoolers. Don't take him. You will spend half of the class listening to him talk about himself.

CALC2413 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

If you want to mess your G.P.A up, then do take him, otherwise DONT. One of the worst professors i have ever come across, he is setting you for failure. You will not learn anything from his class, study on your own and you will be fine.

Cal 1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He confuses himself when teaching. mixes up material from one chapter to another. Tests are nothing like review. Self study to pass. does not specify what is on test nor covers all material on the test. no homework and only gives a couple of practice questions from section review during lectures.

Cal 1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Skips from section to section and mixes up chapters. when teaching ch 1 (limits) he was getting at us for not knowing derivatives ch 2. self-study if you want to pass this class. He only gives a couple of examples from sections and tests on things he did not cover. Tests are nothing like review. Very heavy accent and HORRIBLE COMMUNICATION SKILLS.

WORST teacher ever for math. He doesn't do any thing..doesn't even move from his chair. makes class to solve all problems. sometimes he also gets confuse. But, yes one positive outcome, tests are same as review. DO NOT take him, you might get an A or B, but there are many other good math teaches in HCCS.

Math 2413 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Test is not the same as review, only 4-5 review prob. are similar to the test. YEP! he always used the words "This is so sweet, you lived long, watch me, look at me everybody (hysterical laughter)." Meaningful quoted on board everyday. Disorganized, teaching style is bad. What he taught somewhat not related to the test. Self-study if you wanna pass

Took him for Calc mini. Class wasn't hard but you will not learn very much from him. Avoid if u can't teach yourself. He basically practices his jokes on the class during lecture. Reviews are exactly like the exams so that is a plus. Do the reviews over and over again before exams and you'll pass. The book is your only chance to learn anything.

MATH 1314 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: F

I absolutely hated this professors class. He singled people out which was unnecessary. His teaching methods are bad and he's unorganized. The reviews are like the tests but that's it, when you look at your final review it all foreign. You may pass with a good grade but you won't learn anything useful. Don't take this class.

He has an accent, sometimes difficult to understand, but he is a very kind and funny teacher and every class writes quotes on board. His exam reviews are identical to test. I learned more through youtube videos and Khan academy about math problems than through him.

He breaks it down for you to understand. I took him for 5wk summer & 4 exam (dropped lowest) final exam counted twice. Exams are just like the reviews. Work on reviews and ask questions for the ones you don't understand. I recommend him.

He doesn't teach in an organized manner. He is all over the place and does not break the subject down at all. The test are some times like the reviews he gives so that is the ONLY good thing about him. If you need to actually LEARN math than do not take him.
