MA 244 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

His grading is very harsh! He does not give partial credit. This is most frustrating because he will mark your answer wrong if it is not in the form he wants it. His instructions for this form are often vague or not mentioned at all. His lectures are very unorganized. He will destroy your GPA.

MA244 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B

This guy is really all about respect. He will be rude if you are. He will be nice if you are. He is super retentive about attendance. He genuinely cares about his students, and wants to see you succeed.

MA 271 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

I hate the way he teaches. He goes off on random tangents (excuse the pun) and he take forever to grade. He tries, but he almost never answers the question actually asked. I dont recomend him at all.

MA 244 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B

Had him for Intro Linear Algebra. Lectures focused on method, then theory (wearisome but complete). Quizzes everyday, but plenty of notice/ review before. Instruction sometimes confusing, but very open to feedback. Strongly prefers students show early and stay till the end. Shortcomings aside, he bears Golden Teaching Attribute: he cares about you.

MA 201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Nizar is a good teacher. He is really helpful and understanding if you forget to turn in a homework (he gives a lot of homework). He gives a quiz pretty much every class, but he lets you drop a lot of them. The quizzes and all the exams are easy, except the final. The final was terrible. The book is also very helpful

MA171 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Nizar is a great teacher. I found his tests to be extremely difficult. He also assigns a great deal of homework, but I came out of his class knowing Cal A very well. He made a few mistakes grading my exams, but when asked to explain the problems he graded wrong, he would catch his mistake and correct it. Great professor for really learning calc.

Great professor. He gives clear guidelines on what tests will cover and grades fairly. Also, he was pretty laid back; being in his class was almost relaxing!

MA172 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He does try to help, but is disorganized. Homework was assigned/collected at random. He would call out homework problems or bonus problems then forget which ones he assigned. The examples in class tended to be much easier than the test questions. Would have dropped if I didn't have a great PASS leader. Great teacher if you are good at calculus.

MA171 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Best professor ever. Understood his lectures perfectly, even w/accent. made sure students understood. gave study sheets for exams, often exams recovered sections from prior exam. hw pulls up grade, thought he was too lenient on extending the deadline to those who were irresponsible. willing to answer any questions. funny and intelligent man

Took him for cal 1 and couldn't follow him after we got into the integration and summation material. The PASS tutor did a better job at explaining things than he did.
