MATH 1314 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A
"Would take again" "Clear grading criteria" "There for you"

Took his class during the summer (meet 3 days). He is a good teacher. If math is not your strongest subject, definitely DO NOT take it during the summer because it is fast paced. Quizzes were on MyMath Lab and 4 tests including the final. Homework was assigned, but not taken for a grade (it was just for practice). He would ask if we needed help.

MATH 1314 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is a good professor. Always asks if you have any questions on the homework. The homework is not for a grade just for practice. Mainly uses MyMath lab for online quizzes. I took this class during a summer semester, three days a week. It was fast paced because of the limited time, but if you put the work in then you can succeed. NOT AN EASY A.

1314 Math Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Like a previous comment said hes only in it for the paycheck. Had him as a night class and had 30 people by close to the end of the semester only 10 people stayed. He is clear on how to do the work but when test time comes its a lot harder than the homework the book gives.

MATH1314 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is in it for the paycheck & that's it. Im making an A in class only because I took this class before. However, when he assigns the homework from the book, he tell you not to worry about certain problems or sections, yet these problems are on the tests. You have to teach yourself or you won't pass. Awful teacher, but very nice!

math1314 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

DO NOT TAKE!!!He doesn't use the book to teach at all, but all the homework comes out of the book. He doesn't post homework on mymathlab which I find is more helpful. He goes over a few examples in class, we ALWAYS got dismissed early, and the homework was like nothing he taught. Completely taught myself, somehow passed with a B....

MATH1324 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Excellent! Well-paced course. Don't miss 1 class or you'll be behind. Must do hmwk to do well (doesn't check/grade hmwk). Gives Math Lab extra credit. I recommend tutor, Syed, in ML. Gave 1 take-hm exam. Only negative is that his test grade posting is very delayed, but overall great professor. Learned a lot and earned an A! :) Brian Brock rocks!

Math1314 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Before this class, I was horrible in algebra. He was very helpful and answered all questions and concerns that, I had. He allows you to use notes on the test and he gave extra credit to especially if, you attend my math lab in the library. I would recommend anyone to take him but, study consistently. He does teacher fast but, he will repeat himself

Math1314 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Brian is awesome. Have him for summer class. He does go fast especially in summer, but nothing all that crazy. At the beginning of every class he will ask if there are questions. If you speak up he will go through the problem step by step. Remember for math you have to practice and do your homework. Overall he is very fair and I enjoyed his class.

alg1314 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

i took mr brock for college alg. He is very knowlegable, and easy to understand. He goes fast, but will always go back if you don't understand a problem. make sure you have the book and mymath lab he use both. Lets you use notes on your test and grades on a curve. I have taken this class 2x before and passed this time with an A

PreCalc Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Took him for precal during the summer, nice teacher very knowledgeable.He was too easy on us. I do not feel prepared for Calculus. He always ended class early because he said he was too far ahead. But, he could of used that time to make us experts in the sections or start the relation to calc. Instead we sometimes had 30 min class periods.

I have taken College Algebra four times prior to having him. Math is my weakness and Brian made it more manageable to learn. He was clear in explanations and knows his stuff. He always really takes in to account how much you put into the course in grading!

This class is super hard! 1 of my strong subjects is math and I was a 4.0 student until I took Mr. Brock and I got a D in his class. Tests are nothing like the lecture. He gives 1 or 2 examples per section but he misses a lot of test material. If you can take this class with someone else do so!

the worse teacher ever!he only shows you 1 example for each section and we would cover anywhere from 3 to 5 sections in under 2 hours.he says that the test come directly from his notes but most of the time,we didnt have notes for what was on the test.we paid for him to teach us not for the math lab tutors to teach us the math.good luck with this 1

i agree with the last person.If you are thinking about taking this class with him, you might be better off taking it as a hybrid or online because it seems that you will be teaching yourself everything.The math lab will be were you will be spending the rest of your free time and all the math lab kids will be your new best friends.Good luck

If you are interested in taking a class with this teacher think again!He sometimes teaches from the book and will only give one example.The test do not cover the material covered in class.He does not seem dedicated to his students and for those who don't understand the math lab is your teacher not the one you actually paid!Good Luck taking his clas

I agree with the last person, Mr. Brock is a great teacher. You either get it or you don't, so don't cry about it and say it's the teacher's fault. Do the homework, yes put forth effort, and you won't have any problems.
