"Amazing lectures" "Hilarious"

He's late to every class, and he doesn't prepare you for your exams. Instead, he cancels class and sends you home with a mock exam that is HAND WRITTEN by him and it's just barely legible (and the exam is hand written as well). He also makes you buy a book that you're never going to use and he never refers to it. Save your money.

MAT206 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A
"Hilarious" "Tests? Not many"

He's the nicest professor out there but he lacks when it comes to teaching the class. He may know some of his math but he's too overly confident in his ability to teach. He makes very obvious mistakes. He's constantly late absent. I spent most of my semester home when it came to his class because he barely showed up. Attendance can cost you an A

MAT206 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

His class is not easy in a summer 5-week course, but I sure learned a lot from him! He makes sure you leave the class understanding the topic. He gives mock exams that resemble the actual tests! Like everyone, he makes mistakes, just point them out! He goes the extra mile for his students, just be patient and talk to him.

MAT 206 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Oh myyy...He is a nice, funny dude and, probably, he is good at math. But he is a bad teacher.He makes mistakes, he does not give homework, his grades are ridiculous and his tests are extremely stupid, useless, and hard. He does not check on the test results, nor he helps you to prepare for it. If you wanna be good in math - find another professor

MATH 206 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Took calc & pre-calc. Very unorganized. Doesn't appreciate the hard work, since he doesn't even know who you are. Misses classes. If you want to learn math, don't take him!

MAT 150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Professor Reese is the BEST MATH Professor in the ENTIRE City. But many people get annoyed with him because he is very unorganized and can be very forgetful. I just wished we would have covered a lot more in my class because with him, statistics was so easy. If you do not have patience, Reese is not for you. But i love him. Such a good heart.

MAT301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He is very limited ability to teach Calculus. I was at least serious to study Calculus , but this guy is only focusing on very small part of calculation which is not the subject of Calculus. If you are serious about learning Calculus, you should find other teachers. He uses strange signs or method I have never seen on any authentic math books.

Great professor! He is very passionate on what he teaches and has a great sense of humor. He explains everything step by step and will not move on until everyone gets the material. I recommend everyone to take his class!

MAT303 Calc 3 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Twice this prof hasn't had his act together in major way and screwed up the final. In my class, on exam day, he said, "Let's just use your last HW grade as your final." Some people needed that test grade! This time, students have to come in for an extra class because he didn't make final yet. Really unprofessional & disorganized.

MAT303 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

No syllabus, planning, or standards. Professor arrives exactly 14.5 minutes late to every class and usually leaves 15 minutes early. His lecturing style is very clear and personable, but unfortunately, due to the lack of a clear focus, I feel I am unprepared coursework in classes after this one. Easy A but does not teach necessary material.
