"Clear grading criteria" "There for you" "Participation matters"

I have him for remedial Math (2nd semester term). It's online and in a program. However, he has the syllabus clear. Do the work & you get an A. He gives practice exams, graded before the midterm and final. I haven't had math questions but anything else I've sent him he responded immediately. I'm taking him for Inter. Alg. next term!

"Clear grading criteria" "There for you" "Hilarious"

At first I thought this would be a really difficult class, especially since it's Trig and Pre-Calc combined, but if you're a fast learner and you like Math, take this class. It would help you a lot if you had a little Trig and Pre-Calc knowledge beforehand. Mr. Woodruff teaches fast at times, but he would gladly explain everything in great details.

"Respected by students" "Hilarious" "Inspirational"

He is a good professor. I recommend him to any students who struggle in math or students who are excited to learn more about the subject. The subject taught was pre-calculus and trigonometry... two difficult subjects combined. I do not recommend taking this unless you excel highly in math. He does a good job explaining but may not click for many.

"Big time extra credit" "There for you" "Tests are tough"

very good professor, very smart, and kind, but the class is very hard, lots of material to cover in one semester. he is very helpful with questions, and will stop to answer any questions, but the class pace is very fast, lots of homework but lots of extra credits too. Need to read ahead to understand the class.

MAt 1033 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Woodruff is a nice man, however he is too smart to teach intermediate alg. He rushes thru in class expects every1 to already know the material. Too difficult, knew id fail all my other classes if I stayed in his from the stress, so had to drop. Dont recommend if ur looking for a teacher to teach. Lots of homework. Minimal examples in class..

MAC1105 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: B+

Assignments are very clear, not a heavy work load, and you have the option to work ahead. He is very understanding, easy going, and laid back. He is firm. I love math, but math courses at other institutions wasn't working for me. I should have been transferred, and took his class. Great online class. AWESOME PROFF HANDS DOWN!

Really laid back and nice guy. Instruction wise, he moved a little too fast for me. Quizzes and tests were rather difficult.

MAT1033 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He knows the material very well but I think he is too smart to teach Intermediate Algebra. There are 5 quizzes (5 multiple choice), 5 tests (you have to show the work, but will give partial credit just for trying) and the Final(said it is 30 multiple choice questions). You wont be able to skate by in his class. But if you try, you can get an A.

STA 2023 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He seems like a nice guy . Doesn't understand how difficult math is to others who hate math. Starts off with multiple choice then leaves you with all blank questions by the third test. If you're looking for someone a little more 'easy' hes not the guy to take unless this is your only class and you can devote all your time. I guess hes ok to look at

I was very disappointed with this teacher. I felt like I learned nothing from him. He's nice sure, but he speeds through the topics. Although I went to class every time, I couldn't follow him. He expects you to teach yourself! Highest grades were 60's and I am a 4.0 student! If math isn't your strong point skip this teacher! I don't recommend.

The workload wasn't too bad but he never responds to emails! I would have to email several times before getting a response. This was annoying because I took the class online and I needed answers. I would recommend taking someone else if you have the option.

Woodruff is a great professor. Don't listen to (lazy) naysayer comments. He doesn't just teach you to memorize the formulas/equations; he wants you to understand why and how they work. Expect to do work outside of class (duh). He's lenient with partial credit. Take detailed notes and study them along with the homework problems and you will get an A

Guy is a complete joke, tries to be relate to college students more than he tries to teach. His main objective is obviously to look cool and act hip. He uses profanity in uneccessary situations and spends the whole class rambling on and it seems as if there's no teaching method. I don't recommend this class one bit. Terrible.

this class was completely on mymathlab except for the midterm and final (both had to be proctored). i thought each week was a fairly light workload, not too bad. i never had to email him about any questions so i have nothing bad to say about my experience with him. great online math teacher. only needed an access code, no textbook

This instructor is the worst I've ever had. He always make mistakes and doesn't realize them till the students tell him. He says the tests are gonna be from the notes and he keeps saying that but he never take anything from the notes. Really doesn't know what he's doing, he's a nice guy to have beer with but not teaching math.

Very nice. This is my first time taking an online college class and if I have any issues he will e-mail me back within the hour with a helpful answer. With homeworks you can resubmit an unlimited amount of times which is great! Thanks Professor Woodruff!
