MATH 131 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Very good professor. Prbly the best math professor Ive ever had. Lectures are very clear. Homework is done through my math lab. His tests are basic, roughly 10-15 questions. HW counts as 10% of your test. So HW does help! Reviews before test. If you do hw, and study for tests you'll pass no problem. Really great person, funny and helpful!

MATH131 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Honestly, he is a very nice man. And adorable at that! BUT, he seems to be in his own little world when teaching. His homework is online and you only have to do 1 problem to take the test. His tests are most of the grade(homework is 10% of the test grade). YOU MUST DO THE MATH HIS WAY OR IT IS MARKED WRONG. That was very irritating.

One of my favorite teachers to take. He bases all his test according to his notes so you don't even need to buy one unless you need extra hw problems to work on. Hw is not ever due is suggested hw so is up to you to study. His test are not that hard as long as you study your notes. Over all he's a great person and an amazing teacher.

MATH 131 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I am absolutely TERRIBLE at math, and even I got a C in this class. If you don't test well, do all the hw, pretty sure that's how I passed. He's super sweet & helpful, really cares about the students. If the class still uses mathXL online, DONT BUY THE BOOK. The online code is pricey enough, and it comes with an online book.

He is a great professor.You have no pop quizzes & don't need to use textbook in his class. If you show up every single day, pay attention, and do hw, it's easy to pass his class.A test score is compose of your written work score+ your hw you've done online. He's willing to help you if you got stuck. I recommend this teacher for everyone.

Amazing math professor. Does go a bit too fast so you need to keep up and don't miss any day of lecture or you'll be lost. Hard grader but curves everything including final! Was failing the class but got 100% on final which brought my D to a B in class. Take him, pay attention, take notes (tests are on notes) we don't use book at all. Amazing!

Prof Weydahl is not the best choice if you're weak in math. He skips steps frequently and often uses methods different from the book. His methods can make problems easier, but most times it just confuses the class. He is a hard grader and since the majority of the class frequently scores below 75% on tests, he does indeed give out a generous curve.

He is a very good teacher because he is willing to answer and explain questions. Grade is based on 5 tests only (including the final). His notes are the BEST!

HE IS ONE COOL PROFESSOR. Dont need the book, can get away with library usage. Answers questions until we understood. Grades on generous curve. Gives a review of whats going to be on each test. Highly Recommended!!! He is smart enough to create his own math properties!!!

Awesome math teacher. Very funny and interesting. He teaches well and grades on a curve. Important to go for lectures as he does not use to textbook. you should take notes and use them to study for the tests. He has an awesome personality and you'll love learning from him.

Math135 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

In the beginning I thought he was very unorganized, but later on, it's actually pretty interesting for me and i HATE math. he didn't use the textbook, but hw is online. Notes are written on board. He'll help if you ask. Tests can be a bit okay, because its only like 10-15 questions, but if you study your notes and hw, it'll be easy. overall, like!

I loved this professor. He's great with students. Relaxed class. Lectures are straight forward - goes step by step. Answers all questions. Minimal hwk (online), which is added to the test. Sorta hard grader, but curves a lot. Tests are 99.9% from notes. Attend to learn and you'll pass. He makes it an easy class, I just suck at math.

Math1896 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This Prof is very clear during lecture, however he skips a lot of steps. You better be fast at catching on! One thing that really bothered me about him was that he does not use the book and does not teach the way the book sets its demonstrations. He is very ezy going but lazy about really wanting to answer questions after class.
