MTH 141 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: B

He was...alright. Going to class was not necessary except for exams. Just use Khan Academy. Professor Kraus is a fair grader and is a very smart person, however, he isn't a very good teacher.

mth 141 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

You do not need to go to class except for the 4 exams. Homework is time consuming. He is a very fair grader. Lectures can be useful but only if you have a grasp of the material before, because he does not teach the basics.

MTH 141 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

The BEST professor. His expectations of the students' abilities are much higher than class expectations, assigns too much work, explains things so well that only a rock could get it, never stops to ask for questions & isn't sensitive to students' reactions to the class or material. Plus, Krauschwitz' class feels like sitting through a prison camp.

If you look for a math teacher, pick this one because his explanations are awesome and the exams are very reasonable. NO complains

MTH 311 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

His homeworks were very similar to the tests and the examples done in class. His proofs (the point of the class) were straight forward and if you caught a mistake, he would admit it. Very fair grader, just write everything down. He doesn't look at students until you make noise so if you have a question, just start talking. I never used the book.

TERRIBLE teacher. Textbook does not help either. All you need to do is study the webassigns for all your quizzes and exams and you should do well.

MTH141 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Take him only if you're a math genius cause that's what he expects everyone in his class to be. He doesn't answer any questions in class cause he assumes you know everything and writes really fast on the board which you won't be able to copy down (I have at least 7 pages of notes). He also mumbles lots of numbers and etc making you want fall asleep

MTH141 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

i rarely attend his class but i like this professor because we have quiz in every recitation and we must do homework online, which force me to study math. I like this way. the attendance is not mandatory and what i need to do is just read the textbook and learn myself. He's not a good professor but he's course is awesome

Definitely a proffessor one should try and avoid. His hand moves at a mile a minute and he writes faster than he speaks! Overcomplicates everything! If you are an engineering major, apply early for small groups, cause you will need it. I stopped going to the classes and watched online videos to explain the concepts to me. Find what'll work for you.
