MAT 241 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: WD
"Assignments galore" "There for you" "Tests are tough"

This course is absurdly difficult if you take it online and don't consistently dedicate a good portion of your week to it. Amadou is extremely helpful, but he definitely takes calculus very seriously. You will get destroyed by the slew of assignments and individual projects unless you start them early and work on them each day.

MAT276 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Very difficult course, with an insane amount of course work. 30+ hours of work per week with 6 projects that are unclear and quite difficult. Be prepared to put in the hours and make office visits often to get clarification on assignments. Do not take unless you have a very light course load. I would not recommend taking from this instructor.

MAT150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A

Great teacher, goes at a really slow pace and won't move on until everyone understands it. Only has 5 mandatory homeworks in the semester, the rest are for practice. Does a great job!

He is a great teacher. If you pay attention in his class, it is not too hard for you to understand. He helps you think critically. The final test was easy for students to upgrade the score. He is a nice and talent teacher

MAT 218 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Amadou is the best professor to take 218 at MCC. It's a very hard class, but he is very helpful and will meet you where you're at. He is very generous with grading and really shows diligence in making sure his students understand material. He is always in his office and willing to help. He made a very hard subject much more manageable.

MAT 218 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Amadou is one of the most helpful professors I've ever had. His MAT218 class is by far the hardest class I've ever taken (I already graduated from ASU with two business majors). Nonetheless, it was a class that really made develop great critical thinking skills as well as a strong work ethic that helped throughout college. Greatly recommend him!

Amadou is one the most helpful teachers I have ever had. No need to lie in saying that his class is easy because it's not. However, he will help you always if you ask him. His class was very challenging and required lots of time, but it made me a real critical thinker. Now that I transferred to ASU I'm very thankful for having taken this class!

Excellent professor who will push you. Be wary of the word "spicy" because that means the problem will be hard as hell. Difficult class but incredible professor. He will push you and the ones that complain just couldnt hang and that is life. Highly recommend this professor.

MAT218 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Amadou is a brilliant, funny and exciting professor. Very fair in grading, makes the class fun and interesting. The only prof. whose door is always open and welcomes any lil question. Not an easy A, but hes the only MAT218 prof worth taking. There are 2/3 projects req'd, each worth as much as 1 exam so do them. Also he drops your lowest Exam Score.

A lot of people did not like his class because it was "hard". obviously, it's math. i liked his course, i got a C but that was my own fault because i never did the homework. the tests are easy and the final is a piece of cake. he's a very smart and helpful teacher and his accent is not even bad.

Honestly, he is a very good teacher. Very smart, and doesn't dumb down the material. If you want to be successful in business you need to master the content and he knows that. Some people said that they couldn't understand his accent, but I disagree. Take this class, but work hard!Its college!

MAT218 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Tough class. 20 total quizzes (mathzone), 3-5 per test, 5 green packet homeworks (very hard). Can drop worst test. 2 projects which are grade boosters. Tests are easier than HW, gives practice exams, tests usually 4-6 questions. Final was fairly easy, 10 questions. Office is ALWAYS busy.

DO NOT TAKE HIS CLASS! I would not recommend this class to anyone. The only way you would have a chance at getting all the work done is if this is the only class you took. His homework was so hard, the tutoring centers could not even help you. Unless you plan on going to his office everyday, do not expect to get a good grade!

Excellent teacher! One of the best I've had so far. Definitely a very challenging class with him as an instructor and requires a lot of work. The most difficult homework and the easiest tests. I would highly recommend taking MAT218 with Amadou Gaye if you are willing to work diligently.

Great teacher! His class is very difficult, but he is always willing to help. His homework is an isanely amount of work, but the tests are much easier. He is the best teacher I've ever had. Do the book problems throughout the semester because he uses those for the final. I would've had gotten an A if I did those.

Relatively to some other teachers at MCC Gaye is awesome. The class is not easy and takes a lot of work, but he will help you every step of the way. He actually cares that you learn the concept and makes it easy to get help. Much better than my previous math teacher.

The Homework, which he makes himself, is not related to the course work. He admits the homework is his pet project, it is also over 20% of your grade. Unless you have taken calculus 1 & 2 do not take this class,

MAT242 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Half of the work was straightforward & understandable with practice, the other half [which cropped up at surprising times, like on a timed test] were new applications not previously covered in book/lecture which must be derived from the concepts. Gaye's teaching is a nice challenge for math majors, but uselessly frustrating for anyone else.

i actually liked this class even though it was really difficult and that usually doesn't happen lol. the teacher is cool. only 1 hw assignment per test but the hw is INSANE! only part i didn't like was the difficulty of the assignments but tests are way wayyy easier so don't drop the class after you flip through the first assignment!
