MAT136 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: Not sure yet
"Amazing lectures" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Would take again"

Please disregard bad reviews of him, trust me. I'm also one of those students who are not math gifted, and Zazi made it easy to understand and even fun! Attendance does not count for a grade but you NEED to attend since every lecture teaches you about everything you need to know for the tests, and there is always a small (easy quiz).

"Pop quiz master" "Gives good feedback" "Respected by students"

Zazi is a Great teacher, He made a difficult subject more interesting and receptive. There are quizzes, don't worry if you come to class you will be fine. His accent is a little difficult to understand at times but he does a great job making sure the whole class is on the same page.

MAT 136 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Great teacher. He thoroughly explained each and every problem in class which made the HW and Quizzes easy. The HW is online with mylabsplus. There is a quiz every week. Mid-term and final is multiple choice and some quizzes are too. You would have to be really lazy to not get a B n this class at the least. I would totally recommend to anyone.

OMG! Prof. Zazi rocks!!! If math is not your strength you must take him! He is a first teacher who makes a difficult class easy and breezy. You must work though to achieve a grade you want, but it is an easy A if you are not afraid to spend couple of hours outside the school and practice! No surprises on midterm and final. Take him; won't regret!!!

Coolest math teacher ever. I only wish he allowed us to use a little sheet of notes on tests like some of my past math teachers. Other than that little thing, awesome.

Zazi = the BEST! He's funny too! Never enjoyed math so much! Buy mymathlab. No book. Multiple choice test, so if u don't know something u can use the answers and work backwards. He's not picky either. Exapmle:I answered .014 instead of 1.4% & he gave me 1/2 credit after I spoke with him. He really wants you to pass. Just make sure u go to class!

For once I actually enjoyed a math based class. It wasn't easy but he explains really well and works through problems on the board. He has a good sense of humor and appreciates interaction. Wish he had taught 137

Very easy class. He is clear and concise when teaching and the class always ended early. As long as you take notes and pay attention his class is very easy to pass. His midterm is multiple choice and very easy!

four words "Zazi is the man"! if you value your grade take him, believe me you will understand math after taking this guy. He breaks everything down and gives you exactly what you need to be successful in the course.

The only people who didn't do well in my class were the dumb asses who never did HW, listened in class, and then complained about the teacher. HW problems appear on the quiz. Both HW & quiz problems are on final and midterm. TAKE ZAZI! Just don't expect staying awake in class to get you an A, you need to DO HW AND STUDY! + he is HILARIOUS.

DO your homework that he assigns, this is the BEST and only advice I can give you. Calc. is not my strong suit, so I am not going to say it was easy, but if you take the time to do your homework and actually do it you will do fine. Very similar problems from the homework are on the quizzes. Again if you want to do well in his class do YOUR HW.

Good teacher and all of his classes are very easy. I took him for MAT 135,136, and 137. He's a nice guy and is funny at times. He gives out a weekly quiz with about 5 questions and that is worth 40% of the grade. Midterm and Final are worth 30%. Concentrate on doing well on the quizzes very simple.

All I have to say is take this professor. He is by far the sweetest guy and such a great teacher. I was hesitant to post on here until I was for sure signed up in his 137 class because I wanted to make sure I got my spot! I have had him for 135, 136, and 137. He makes calc fun, class is always let out very early, JUST TAKE HIM. YOU WONT REGRET IT!

Zazi is great and funny. I took a night class w/ him & he always lets us leave an hour early which is nice. Weekly hw, only a few problems, very easy. Weekly quizzes which come directly from hw & drops the lowest grade. Midterm was easy & multiple choice. Final not cummulative since we did good on midterm.

I could slap myself for not taking Zazi for 136 this quarter. He was SUCH a great teacher, his class is literally calc for dummies. Make sure you do the hw because the same problems show up on weekly quizes and exams--which are SO EASY if you do hw. He only teaches you what u need to know for tests, which i LOVED. DEF taking him for Stats SP Qr.
