Volkmer is a bit difficult to understand, but he's more than willing to help out in office hours. He sometimes skips steps on the board, but if you look back at it later, you'll understand. He is truly brilliant. Volkmer teaches you many applications and little tricks, which is always nice. Exams are easy - you get to use your notes!

Dr. Volkmer lives and breathes mathematics. If you want to do well in this course, study groups are a must, as Dr. Volkmer can be difficult to understand due to having such a soft spoken nature. He is always kind and willing to help out. He answers questions very well when a student is brave enough to ask, and the exams are very straightforward.

Professor Volkmer was great! He's really good with giving help if you don't understand things. Make sure to attend every class, though, as he lets you use your notes on the exams. I would also reccomend sitting up front - it's easier to read everything he writes and says.

Great Professor. He knows the material very well. If you need help, he is glad to help. Make sure you take notes and write down everything you write down on the board. You CAN USE THEM on the exam.

Excellent professor and easily one of the smartest men I've ever met. He knows the subject material inside and out and teaches it exceptionally well. Keep up with the homework and you're golden.

I think he was a great professor. After his class I really felt like I had learned "math" instead of just a grab bag of calculus tools. He is a very respectful, helpful professor

Some of the students here apparently didn't like Dr. Volkmer too much. I disagree whole-heartedly. He's a very thorough instructor. I learned a lot. Lower-level students likely complain because they're not used to a math teacher that expects his or her students to read the material ahead of time. (This is college, folks.)

wow, he's not a good teacher at all. don't take this class if you have never had calculus before! He doesn't ever look at the class, but constantly talks to the board. Is sometimes hard to hear; make sure to always write things down, he allows notes on exams. Very boring..if you don't like proofs, AVOID this class at all costs!

wow. i took honors calc for a challenge but this was beyond what i expected. i couldn't even follow what he wrote down. he makes alot of mistakes in his work so on exams he allowed for some error. the key to his class is study groups for homework and OPEN NOTE TESTS. make sure you have examples from the book in your notes, that is how i passed

Very difficult to understand... was NOT engaging. Take his class if you want to learn everything on your own. Did allow notes for exams.
