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.

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!

MATH122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Hard. He's willing to go reexplain things you don't understand during class. However, he often gives hw probs that are weird and different from what he teaches in class. Those happen to be the ones to show up on quizzes and tests. Pretty much every time. So, make sure you know how to do EVERY one of the 40 or so hw problems he assigns.

MATH107 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Probably the easiest class this social science major had the entire semester. Just do the homework and make sure you understand it. Unless you are severely math challenged, you should be fine.

linear methods Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

this class is commonly known as the "widow maker" among english majors. don't, repeat, DO NOT take this class expecting it to be a basic intro to math class, or you will be taken apart by dr. gottlieb's evil game theory final. the game theory stuff is just plain brutal and the rest of the class isn't much better... if in 107, brace yourself.

Lin. Methods Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This class just plain sucks if you're not sharp in math. don't bother asking a question in class because he'll take twenty minutes to answer and you still won't know what's going on.

Professor Gottlieb was a great professor. He was always willing to help and wanted his students to understand the material. He even remembered me by name almost 3 years after I had him in class!

Linea Meth Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: N/A Grade Received: N/A

Easy class to do well in if you keep up with the homework and actually go to class. I would not recommend taking it your senior year (esp. 2nd semester). Can be a lot of work for someone who is mathematically challenged.
