"Clear grading criteria" "Gives good feedback" "Skip class? You won't pass."

Igo was very helpful and always willing to answer questions after class, or during office hours. His notes are vey clear and precise. Practice problems are extremely beneficial, seeing as he sometimes pulls quiz questions from practice problems in the book. I strongly recommend him to anyone in need of a math course.

"Skip class? You won't pass." "There for you" "Would take again"

To get a good grade, come to class each day, sit in the front, pay attention, take good notes (he gives you everything you need to know, copy everything down!), do the optional book problems for practice, and do the webassign assignments! Takes some effort and dedication but it's definitely possible to get an A! Take him if you get the chance!

"Skip class? You won't pass." "Clear grading criteria" "Would take again"

Igo is amazing! He encourages questions and answers them well. His explanations are clear and straightforward. Anyone that is criticizing him probably didn't do the optional practice problems he assigns. You need to understand that this is college, you still have to study on your own outside of class and put in effort to get a good grade.

"Tough Grader"

professor Igo is a very harsh grader when it comes to his exams. And he goes all out with the material he puts on there, even if you study your butt off his exams will look like new material that you have never seen.

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

I suck at math but he made it easy for me. Good at explaining things in simple terms. Make sure to copy down everything he writes on the board. He assigns a ton of problems from the book that are optional, try to do at least some of them if you want to get a good grade cause practice is essential. Always gives quizzes a few days before the test.

"Tough Grader" "Tests are tough" "Clear grading criteria"

Professor Igo is a helpful professor. He's straightforward, the six quizzes are taken from homework and he'll drop your lowest quiz score. There are also four tests and a cumulative final. I would recommend Professor Igo.

MATH 090 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Igo = best math professor, very monotone and you might zone out here and there but his notes on the board are so clear that you wont fall behind in class. He doesnt use the book, only for reference and you need to buy the MathLAB. His tests are hard but he teaches you what you need to know. drops a quiz and gives a ton of extra credit. TAKE HIM!

Math 105 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I had him for precalc he's one of the best math professor in UM-D. He is very helpful and clear. He gives you 4 tests and 6 quizzes that are straight out of the hw. You don't have to turn in the hw but you should do it since the tests and quizzes are taken from it. I dont understand why he does not have good reviews but he really makes precalc easy

Math 080 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Probably one of the best math teachers I've had since high school. His class is very easy and gets to the point. I took it at night, and the setting was very mellow. He follows the textbook and he gives homework online - DO THE ONLINE HW! He doesn't grade the textbook homework. Quzzies and exams are straight to the point - but he's a picky grader.

He explains the material very well in class. He doesn't have a relationship with students, though. He is a nerd who is very precise, especially when grading. VERY TOUGH GRADER! Any little mistake is marked down. Lots of homework every night 4 exams 6 quizzes, 1 cumulative final. NO DROPS OR CURVES. Do every single homework assignment you might pass

Great guy terrible professor He just walks through the examples in the book without asking the class if they have questions then gives the homework He gives tons of problems for homework none of which are graded but if you dont do the homework you will not understand the material because he sucks at teaching.

Really nice guy and very helpful. The only thing i didnt like was that your grade is entirely based on the 4 tests and 6 quizzes. no homework is ever graded. so if you mess up on a test youre pretty much screwed. Also the questions are very straight forward and are just like the homework questions. i would recommend him to anyone!!

Took in summer so this might sound biased. No review before lecture on pervious material. Lectures on quiz and exam days. Not for the faint of heart!

Math 115 - Calc Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Terrible prof. Only works out chapter examples. WILL NOT answer student's questions or go over HW problems! Try to learn from the book, show up for face time, and take his notes to the MLC or a tutor. Using a method to solve not directly from notes results in 0 pts on test. Only open for 15 min after class, if there's a line - too bad he's leaving.

Nice guy, not that great of a professor. Basically you will learn from the book, and get a monotone preplanned lesson on the board during class. No Questions allowed, if you begin asking he will become frustrated because 'there is no time'. Only available 10 minutes before and after class - no flexibility. If you have questions, go to the MLC

Best math teacher I have ever had. Quizzes are fair, and he gives partial credit on most problems. Lots of extra credit can be earned. He actually knows how to TEACH!
