MAC2313 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

His lectures were very fast and sometimes too fast but he spoke perfect English and actually knew his math (sometimes professor do not know what they are talking about, you don't have to worry about that with this guy). Gives homework that is helpful and curves his test a bit.

MAC 2313 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B

His lectures would not make sense at times. I taught myself for the second half of the class and did better . However, he can give really great curves. No extra credit. Doing the homework and reviews help for midterms and final.

Great Professor! Unlike other math classes I have taken, the review is just like the test. If you have a hard time understanding math he makes it very easy. Highly recommended.

MAC 2311 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A+

He is literally the greatest math professor I have ever had the supreme pleasure of getting in my lifetime as a student. So many examples. The curve is so overpowered, (there was literally one with about a 12 point boost) not that I needed it tho since, thanks to his clarity and endless examples I aced just about every exam. You have to take him

Good professor! he's an American born so you don't have to worry about accents! he explains things really well and always does lots of examples! Test are standard, but the reviews he gives are REALLY helpful.. Do all hw and study the review and you'll pass... Always curves the exams!

MAP 2302 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Teaches way too fast!!! You have too choose between writing down whats on the board or listening. Be prepared to do most of the teaching yourself outside the classroom. Very fair test and quiz giver. Concepts straight out of the homework. I could not keep up with the work, due to the time required to learn everything myself and manage other class.

MAC 2311 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Quite a difficult subject to begin with but Leness doesnt make it any easier Snarky attitude, not helpful and tests are ridiculous. Hardly any curve. Avoid if possible.

MAC 2312 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

If you dislike having professors with accents, than take him, he is american born so his english is crystal, go to class and take notes, his reviews are helpful and he uses wily plus as well as book problems that he doesn't collect but will go over in the beginning of class if you have questions. His exams are similar to his review. Hes good.

It's easier to understand him if you have some background on Calculus, because he explains a lot with theory, although he provides some examples. He's very smart, and wants you to know the "why" behind math. His curves are awesome! It made the difference between a B and an A- . If you took Calculus in high school, you'll be fine taking him.
