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!

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.

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!

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!

Seriously the best math professor I've ever had. His tests are the absolute basic forms of the problems and if you attend class you will have no problem getting an A. Homework is in the textbook and if you fall asleep in class... he will catch you.

Lectures are basically necessary for acing the class, unless you're a genius. The class is pretty easy if you pay attention and stay awake during class. Always available for extra help, and he gives good examples for the concepts.
