Really hard class, but Professor Wang provides many opportunities to improve and offers additional office hours. He does a decent job showing the application, but I always had to use additional online lectures to understand what was going on.

Spent 56 hours (documented by my math lab) over 3 weeks doing hmwk and quizzes. The test were nothing like the hmwk and he only took points away from my work shown. When I tried to do my own method that worked for me, he wouldn't count it and gave me 0 credit. DO NOT TAKE HIM. Got a D+.

The problem is the way that he teaches the class. He gives you a few examples of a problem in class, and then your homework on My Math Lab consists of 90% problems you didn't learn in class. His tests are also randomly generated from MML, so you might not have even learned it. Hard grader, but sadly, a kind of nice guy. Don't recommend.

He teaches a concept in class and then when you get to the online homework (MyMathLab), you have to learn everything else that he didn't teach. You will spend about 3 or 4 hours on each of the two homework assignments due each week. He does give some extra credit but not enough to make this a class worth taking. Avoid this professor if you can.

HORRIBLE TEACHER! teaches one type of problem in class which forces you to teach yourself through MML. you will spend over 10 hours a week on 2 HWs and 2 quizzes online due over the WEEKEND. he also DOES NOT give partial credit which is ridiculous in math. and he uses MML to make tests, so extremely hard and problems that you have only seen once.

Clear explanation, but too much work. I dropped the class mid quarter with an 88 because I was doing 10+ hours of MML work a week (not exaggerating, exact numbers from MML). I love calc, had an A last quarter, but this class had so many problems! 2 hw and 2 online quizzes per week usually amount to 60 problems that take 10 mins each. Don't bother!

He uses MyMathLab so much, it felt practically like an online class. During class, Dr.Wang did not touch on many of the types of problems in the homework, which means you have to teach yourself using MyMathLab. He is just so good at math that he seems to forget that he needs to boil down the topics and make them easy to understand.

The professor was horrible. I have taken many math courses and this is by far the worst professor I have ever had. Still managed to do well in the class from teaching myself using mymathlab but the professor did not teach the class anything. He did not believe in partial credit and the tests were extremely difficult.

Absolutely terrible professor. If you try to talk to him, he will just tell you it's your fault for not understanding. Relies on others to teach you the information and doesn't cover anything once it's been said. Forget about asking for a review over anything. His tests are brutal and are focused around things he doesn't even teach. AVOID HIM.

HORRIBLE PROF! His accent is hard to understand, he is stubborn, doesn't always answer questions asked in class, and he just plain doesn't teach well. Don't take this class if you are not highly proficient in algebra. He is by far the worst prof I have ever had. Only plus is that his accent and antics can make him pretty hilarious at times.

Class material is very hard. You have to study every week, but if you attend class and really work hard you can do well. He is a good teacher but you have to know your algebra and attend class.

He's a fairly good professor. If you do well on his weekly quizzes you will do alright in his class.

He teaches well but you also have to do your part and keep up with what he's teaching you. Sometimes he goes a little fast and doesn't slow down but overall if you study you'll do well in his class

The best math teacher I ever had. He moves at the optimum speed. From beginning to the end of class you listen and take notes. If you do this well you won't have to learn from the book. He prepares you well for the exams. If you study what you know what you need to know you will get an A. Take this teacher if you want to learn math.

As long as you do the MyMathLab quizzes, hw, tests... you're golden. He has a strong asian accent, but copy from the board and look over for homework, it helps a lot!

I disagree with all of the bad reviews for Dr. Wang. They can only be due to incompetent or unprepared students who received bad grades. His notes are great and I didn't need the text book. Practice quizzes are exactly like the real quizzes. His summer calculus classes require knowing your precalc and trig because they are accelerated.

I took this with Gang Wang in the Spring and learned NOTHING! This class was a complete waste of time. I had to teach myself everything and got little to no help from Gang Wang. He makes you feel stupid for asking questions. I took this again with Prof. Butterworth in the summer, got a B, and now understand the material. Avoid Gang Wang!

Dr. Wang is a great professor. He does stress that you must know algebra! He cares about his students. One day i missed class and he emailed me and asked if everything was ok and to check with him to let him know in the future. I think people are intimidated by him in. Hey, you gotta know algebra period
