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

Great teacher. His style of teaching was entertaining enough to break up the monotony of a 2:30 minute math class. Types of questions on the tests were emphasized in his lectures. Tests graded fairly. Homework was every other odd for all sections. Overall great teacher and very fair

MATH 095 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I loved him as a teacher! Dorky and loves math, and good at teaching it. He answers all questions until there are none left, very patient. He makes it very obvious what kinds of questions will be on the tests, and there are no quizzes! Tests are nice and short and simple. Laid back and helpful!

MATH103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

VERY unhelpful... does not give much assistance, works way to quickly, horrible and describing how he works through a problem and is all over the place in a lecture. Doing the homework helps but he is of no use. The only useful lecture days are when he covers test material the day before. Do not take this teacher if you have a choice.

MATH 090 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This instructor bounces around through the chapters and its very hard to comprehend because of this. Even an honor student had to withdraw. He is a bit eccentric and sarcastic but really its just how he sets up this class, he bounces around and its very confusing. I will not take another class with him.

MATH103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Jim's lectures are good and his tests are fairly short (8-10 questions) and easy. Do the assigned homework problems and go to every lecture and you'll pass.

Math 093 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Taking a class with him was waster of my time and money. He was unclear in lecture and hasty. Horrible at responding to questions . Do not take classes with him at all. He never follow the book, he is so random in his lecture jumping from one lecture to other. lecture in class never reflect the book and homework.

MATH 095 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I went from an A in Math 090 to withdrawing from this class since I would inevitably fail. He is a VERY harsh grader. A minor error WILL get you an F on the question, regardless of how well you display your understanding of the process. What is even better is he didn't allow calculators, so I would fail my tests due to minor arithmetic errors.

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

Taking a class with him was dissatisfying and unfortunately a waster of my time. He was unclear in lecture and hasty. Horrible at responding to questions and often unavailable during office hours. he is unresponsive to emails and family emergencies, frankly he is rude. He is a student as well which affects his teaching performance and quality.

Math 095 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Such a great teacher! I would take him again and again! He's so easy going. Does not take attendance. He lets you know what will be on the test. He's very patient and answers questions until nobody has anymore. Tests always seem slightly more complex than what we did i class but he gives partial credit on wrong answers if you we're partially right.
