EASY. Class was extremely boring and I rarely went because he repeats everything in the textbook (which he wrote). I read the book and did a ton of practice problems before each test and got A's. There are only 2 tests and a final, along with homeworks due every few weeks. If you want to learn, do not take this class. If you want an A, take it.

He's got an odd sense of humor and only reads examples from the book during class but it was SO easy. You don't have to come to class but he does check who showed up on fridays by having everyone sign a paper. Everything is open book/notes. TAKE!

Extremely boring class. lectures were completely useless.I would have to teach myself the material after class. His final had a lot of things we never covered on it! very disappointed in the class. He made a relatively easy class seem impossible. So many awkward silences in class when he would wait for an answer nobody knew, DO NOT TAKE HIM!

Professor Flage is an extremely nice man. Attendance is not mandatory since all power points are online, but going to class does help with papers. Professor Flage is very willing to help with understanding of all readings as well as helping with paper topics. Good course

Easy class, can get super boring though especially if you take it in the afternoon. Everything is open book/open note. HOWEVER, the final was completely out of the blue and didn't cover anything we talked about all semester. Dr. Flage is funny though, so take his class.

Dan is hilarious. He drools and farts through out the class. Normally lets us out early and doesn't care whether you show up or not. The material is super easy. I'd take him if I were you.

Today I was sitting in the front of this class and paying attention for once. Prof Flage is rambling on about the exercise like always and slobber drips out of his mouth and onto his stomach. Literally 2 minutes later he finally chokes on his saliva and wipes his face of the slobber. Needless to say, take this class.

This class is so boring. He wrote the text book so everything he lectures about is straight from the book. Every test is open note/open book and he drops your lowest quiz/homework grade so that is a plus. Class isn't interesting but an easy Gened course.

Flage's class is a breeze. He doesn't take attendance, so you never have to show. You can just read the textbook and take the tests and get a B easily. A little bit more effort gets an A. He seems boring but is quite a funny character and has these really random asides that make class interesting. Take him.

Easy A. Professor Flage has an interesting sense of humor. First impression of class is boring and pointless. Sit near the front and actually listen to him, and you'll find yourself laughing. Read the textbook, then you wont have to pay attention in class. He wrote his own textbook, chapters and short and to the point. Slept all semester, got an A

DO NOT TAKE. I HATED EVERY MINUTE OF MY LIFE BEING IN THIS CLASS. I felt like ripping out my hair while taking this class because the material is so confusing. I took it online and the teacher is very cool but the material is so hard.

This class is so boring that I can sit there and not hear anything for the full hour. Attending lectures is mournfully unnecessary; there are 3 assignments for the whole semester, so all you need is the due dates. I couldn't imagine more dull of a class. Not an exaggeration to say it's not unusual for 5 students out of 25 attend a particular class.

Flage is a character. He reads right from the book, which he wrote. He cracks jokes and sometimes can be very entertaining. Everything is open book and open notes but test are HARD. If you pay attention and do a little studying you'll do fine.

Dr. Flage is a nice guy and grows on you. His class is easy because he goes over most of the answers on the homework and tests are open note, open book. The material isn't easy and lectures can be boring. If you visit him he will be sitting outside of his office building smoking on his pipe. He is helpful, not to hard, take him for gen ed req.

Flage is the man. Most people probably think hes boring but hes interesting. He likes to recite poems. He can be hard to understand at times. but he goes over the homework in class right before you turn it in so its impossible to get them wrong. You dont need to go to class but id advise it later in the semester as it gets hard in the end

I took this class online and it was NOT what I expected. This was the HARDEST online class I've ever taken and it's a GenEd class. His test were difficult and frustrating to understand due to his tricky wording and I read the chapters twice and still didn't do well. Would recommend you NOT to take this class with him online if all possible.

The best professor I have had through out my college experience. He helped me so much when I was struggling. If he knows that you are trying in the class he will do anything to help you. It is not the easiest class, however I would take him to get through the gen eds. TAKE HIM!!!

Just took his online class. Materials were not extremely hard but wording can be a little difficult. I finished the 8week summer course in just (the last) 5 days and got an 85%. Two tests per module and you keep the highest grade, not that hard. A good grasp of logical thinking a must though

I just took his online class. Hardest class I have EVER taken. He only emailed us twice throughout the semester. The way he words his question makes absolutely no sense. I read the text VERY carefully and still got 60's on my tests. I hate this class and would highly recommend that no one take his class.
