Math 125 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: D

Gotchev has a bit of an accent but he's not hard to follow at all. Even though I didn't do well in the class. I must say if you go to him for help he will try his hardest to make you understand the material. Don't be afraid to ask for help in his class.

If you want to learn the material well, take it with Gotchev. He has a little bit of an accent, but it really isn't that bad. The take home tests are harder/longer than the actual test. So if you understand the take homes you'll be fine. Wish I could have him for more classes honestly.

MATH 221 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Professor Gotchev knows the material very well. He does have a Bulgarian accent but he is easy to understand. This class is very challenging but if you utilize the book, online math lab, and his office hours you can pass. Make sure to ask questions in class, he will clarify anything you have trouble understanding.

MATH 152 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A+

Oh my goodness. His lectures are very hard for me to follow. Maybe if you've taken calculus before, he'd be easier to understand. I never took calc in high school, so I have such a hard time following along. Tests and take-home exams are pretty hard. Just so many analogies about hot air balloons and fathers and driving from Hartford to Boston.

MATH 221 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Inspirational quote from Gotchev: “Math is like driving a car. It’s hard at first, but with practice it gets easy.” If his class were a car, most people would never make it out of their driveway. Lectures are hard to follow unless you study before every class and most people who understand what he attempts to teach in class still do poorly on tests
