"Would take again" "Respected by students" "Amazing lectures"

Clearest math teacher I've had. He's able to explain topics and concepts very clearly. Go to lectures and pay attention in class and you'll leave with a much more in-depth understanding of calculus. He's very visual in explaining things and totally willing to help if you talk to him and show dedication to the class.

"Clear grading criteria" "Would take again" "Amazing lectures"

Prof Salathe is a really great calc 2 professor. He's clear, and he really helps you learn the material. What's nice is he shows you where all equations come from, but you don't ever need to prove them. All his quizzes are very straightforward and are very similar to his practice tests. He's really funny in lecture; just don't text or sleep!

Professor Salathe is the man. He provides a lot of helpful examples while also being very funny and personable. Exams were very fair and easy if you studied the material and went to class. Overall, great professor.

Professor Salathe was easily the best professor I had first semester. His accent is a little hard to understand at first but you get used to it easily. He gave good examples of all the problems and he was very helpful at office hours. He actually teaches you why you use certain methods to solve problems so that you don't memorize the formula!

MATH 023 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor Salathe is a very nice guy who is extremely approachable. His exams are not difficult, but rather test what you need to know rather than giving pointlessly difficult questions. He can be really funny, too. The only downside is that his explanations and lectures can be a bit confusing and fast if you don't already know the material.

Salathe is the man! His lectures are clear, his exams are easy, and he loves teaching the class. He is very passionate about calculus and likes to tell bad (but funny) jokes which makes lecture enjoyable! I recommend him to everyone!

Salathe really does a good job of making sure not only that you know how to do problems, but that you know why the formulas you use work. He is a great prof and has a great sense of humor. If you get the chance, definitely take his class.

MATH 022 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He is hands-down the best professor I've had so far. He went through three weeks of class only using one simple integral to derive 14 different equations that nobody had to study because he went into such detail! Who else would make a related rate problem out of diluting the beer in a keg? I would love to have him for all my math classes!

MATH 22 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Hands down best teacher in my entire life. He really teaches you how to derive every formula so much that I never had to study at all. Exams were basically the same exact problems as the review sheets but different numbers. He set up an online textbook on getcalculus. com for only ten bucks. Get that or else you'll buy a 200 some dollar textbook.

Great math professor, definitely take him if you have the option for calc 2. Tests are really easy. A lot of people in the class are retaking from failing in the spring

He does a great job of explaining WHY you do what you do for each problem. Explaining the reasoning behind the steps of the problems made the material much easier to follow and understand. Homework could be very time consuming but was worth it because it was good practice for the exams. Exams consisted of the easier type problems from homeworks.

Best mathematics professor of any kind I've run across. His explanations are simpler than most and yet clarify the material in five minutes better than some professors do in an hour. He is not easy per se, but he is fair, and his tests reflect that -- certainly compared to other professor's tests, they expect only moderate mastery of the material.

Salathe is hilarious. He keeps class fun and interesting. He teaches to the homework and test. He gives good study guides. He teaches little tricks to help, so if you don't have a strong background in algebra/trig/geometry don't worry, he will help!
