MTH131 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

One of the worst experiences of my life was taking this class. I know that sounds extreme, but i did not learn anything during lecture and had to learn calculus on my own. Very unorganized class. Teacher doesn't explain things well. Just an overall nightmare.

if you are contemplating taking this teacher, just look at all of these comments and your mind should be made up of whether or not to take the class

MTH131 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Class is three times a week plus one session of recitation. I learn more in one recitation, than I do in three lectures. No point to showing up for class. Expect to learn most of the material on your own and from visiting the TA during office hours. If math isn't your strongest area then do not take this class!

Absolutely horrible. Could not hear him during lectures because he mumbles to the blackboard. Bad at explaining topics. Scribbles on the blackboard making hard to take notes. Gives out review sheets but the tests are much harder. Great curves though. HW is not bad at all and it's due biweekly and the TA is way much helpful and very nice.

He is something else. Talks to the board and mumbles. Tests are iffy and hw is required bi weekly. His TA is the only reason why I'm passing the class. Not a good teacher at all.

Absolutely horrible professor. Very hard to follow during lecture, often times not fully explaining topics or expecting students to know material not taught. Poor at explaining things. Unorganized. Bad.
