Math 1148 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Professor Nedel is the most amazing, smart and very helpful instructor I have ever met.Trust me or not, I NEVER practice any of the homework assignments or read the book.His lecture notes and examples were enough for me to pass his class with 93%. All you need to do is ignore all these bad reviews and STUDY HARD. I would definitely recommend him!!!

Calc 1151 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: WD

His class was really hard. I kept on getting fs till the very middle of the semester so i decided to drop it. He teaches on and on and doesnt care if students understand what he is teaching or not. You can only pass his class if u have all the time in the world to solve all the calculus questions in your textbooks.u have to know formulas for tetsts

MATH-1148 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Do NOT take his course over the summer. He crams multiple sections into each class and waits a week or better before giving a quiz on that material. He also teaches multiple sections the day of the quiz. You must have a proficiency in math in order to follow his lecture. Quizzes are outrageously difficult and you rarely have enough time to finish.

MATH1150 1172 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Had Nedel twice, once for 1150 (Precalc) and again for 1172 (Engineering Calc); and I can tell you he's wayyyy better in higher level mathematics than in lower level ones. Avoid if you can if you're a lower level Math student, but don't worry if you're taking 1151 or higher.

Math1148 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He is an extremely hard grader, he reads the stuff directly out of the book and doesn't go more in depth on it. The homework is nothing like the actual tests/quizzes, the problems are like nothing you've ever seen and there is no half credit and if you don't write your answer his way: yeah, you fail. Never take a class with him as the professor

I found this class very difficult but not because of the professor. Prof Nedel was very clear in his lectures and was very helpful when asked questions. Downsides-only points are: 6 quizzes and 3 tests+final and he doesn't give out practice quizzes or practice exams. The class is tough so you need a lot of study time!!

Math 1131 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Only prof that taught Business Calc so I was forced to take him. Passed but wasn't easy. Grades tough, quizzes aren't worth much overall. Final worth 30% and exams fill the rest. Fail an exam and you're likely done for. Make sure you attend and don't miss anything, he has a zero tolerance makeup policy. Only about 7 students by the end of semester!

If you want to learn a lot from a math class, this is definitely one to take. This teacher is very informative, sometimes too much so. Every lecture is packed with new information. If you have a question don't hesitate to ask because sometimes he blazes right through all the material. If you study and ask questions, you are guaranteed at least a B.

Lectures are packed with material which is good in a way but it's usually a challenge to follow the whole 2 hours.

Math153 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

HORRIBLE! Lectures are recited verbatim from the text, homework is all even # problems, quizzes and exams are rough, very hard grader! He spends so much time reciting the theorems verbatim that there is little time for questions or explanation. more worried about you using the proper stanix than teaching the material!

His calculus class is fast paced and difficult so you have to pay attention and ask questions if you don't understand. Never had any problems outside of the course work. Needs to work on not standing in front of the things he writes on the board since they are the notes we need.

hard grader, if the answer is wrong, then all the points taken away, no half marks. very fast paced lectures, hard to keep up. out of order, gives quizes to something we learned a week ago. never reviews. study guides are very vague. makes u feel dumb for asking questions, no one really raised their hand. if you want a good grade, dont take him.

He's a math guy and he'll make you work hard. If you do, you will do well. He will challenge you on his tests. Be ready to practice the homework and prepare for quizes/tests properly. I can integrate and analyze geometry like a champ now!
