Math 121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I only took this class for an F-credit. By the end of the class I was genuinely enjoying the work I was being taught. I have never in my past three years ever worked with a more helpful, genuine and passionate professor. PHENOMENAL at what he does. His positivity and love for the class is forcibly contagious!

Calc 1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: C+

Dr. Gottlieb is a great teacher who loves his subject, but expects a lot out of his students. If you take his class, don't just prepare for tests using the easy problems in the book, because he loves to challenge students on his tests.

Math121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A-

Professor Gottlieb really cares about his students. He is clearly passionate about what he teaches, and tries to instill that same passion in his students. While he is not an easy teacher, he will definitely make sure you understand what he teaches and cares that you retain the information, not just spit it out on the exam. I highly recommend him!

CALC3 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Very helpful, willing to help you whenever. I frequently went to his office hours, and he was more than happy to help. He does go into tangents about other topics in math that aren't necessarily important in math. Sometimes can be nit-picky on his grading, but the tests are not impossible. Some questions on the test are quite difficult though.

MATH201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Gottlieb is a highly intelligent guy. This becomes tricky because he'll go off on tangents about higher level math, but don't worry, it won't be on the test! The tests are similar to the homework. He's a great guy!

MATH122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

His class was the hardest I've ever, same for his tests and exams. Do not take this class if you aren't a math person. Be careful even if you do like math. This class is hard.

Math122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Do not listen to these other comments with smiley yellow faces...I'm telling you straight up that Gottlieb is a horrible professor for social science majors...if you are like me (sociology major) and can't stand math/science things then Gottlieb's class will be your worst nightmare...

MATH251 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Gottlieb is fantastic. He genuinely cares about his students and is incredibly accommodating. He is a pretty hard grader, but he does curve a little bit at the end.

If you don't mind him emailing assignments way later than he says he will, or getting 3 assignments two nights before a test, go for it. Otherwise, steer clear.

Cal2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Gottlieb was great! He made me love Cal 2 and if I'd taken it earlier I would have done more in math -- GREAT PROF!
