Dr. Boats is a fantastic prof. He is a genius; he can do freakishly good drawings freehand on the board and do square roots to something like 4 decimal places... His quizzes are very fair, Maple assignments easy, grading fair. Plus he dressed up as a wizard and brought everyone candy on Halloween. In short, he actually made me ENJOY math class.

Awesome prof! Can show you several ways to do everything, makes incredible 3-D drawings freehand, and he does ridiculous calculations in his head. The projects are pretty hard, but you learn a lot and you always know whats expected. Grades fairly and lets you drop a couple quiz scores.

(previous comment cont.)The homework is very representative of the quizzes. They're often the same question with different numbers. One of the few teachers that is not a pain. Best class this term. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

The class is very well structured. Turn in homework on Monday, Quiz Wednesday, project dates in syllabus. He is very understanding of students who show up late for quizzes (class is at 9am). Postponed the dates of the projects twice because one was too confusing, and for the other he wasn't available in his office for questioning the daybefore

He's a great teacher and really knows wat he's talking about.Pay attention in class and take notes and you won't have to do homework at home. He's really smart and helpful.
