He wasn't so bad through the first 2 exams. Everything was clear, and easy to understand. He teaches matrices like you have already learned them. Didn't do any matrix examples. Straight definitions for 2 weeks.

One of the best profs at Kettering. He shows real world applications for all the topics covered. He didn't collect homework, but it helped prepare for the weekly quizzes. The quizzes are only worth 10% of the grade and it helps you from falling behind. Take him if you can.

Very clear with his lectures and notes. However he is an extremly unfair grader. On maple hw all of my answers were correct, but I still got a C on the assignment because of name and staple placement. Ridiculous. Also he is very into students being independent so whenever I asked4help he told me to"look at the book again and try2find it on my own"

Tebeest is the man. He teaches clearly, repeats the information multiple times (so it's impossible to miss), and writes on the board neatly, so that you can take good notes. He prepares you well for his tests, but it takes a 95% to get an A. He also loves his 20 digit precision in Maple...

He goes over everything very very slowly and then on the test throws in several trick questions. He teaches toward the math majors so if you are not stay away for this class! He grades very hard and made an easy Nums class hard!!

Awesome guy. I've always struggled with Calculus, and I learned a lot from this guy. If you have a good background, you'll do great. If you have a very weak background like me, you'll learn a lot, but the class will be difficult. Does an excellent job with notes. Not the easiest Calc 3 teacher, and unfortunately, cribs are in short supply.

Extremely effective at conveying the material - you learn a lot! Three maple assignments, two exams and a final. The final was killer and was really long. But definitely the best prof for the class - really knows his stuff, and you will too.

Great professor. Somewhat quirky at times, but does an excellent job of teaching and then reinforcing the material. Very knowledgeable about nearly everything math, science and engineering related. Highly recommended!

TeBeest is the only prof at KU who's class I never fell asleep in. Makes the subject super easy, tests are cribable. THE FINAL INCLUDES EVERYTHING AFTER WEEK 4! Take GOOD notes, and try not to miss class because notes aren't available except from other people, he covers a lot of material, but does it very well. Best math prof at KU.

TeBeest is the best math professor at K.U. I learned so much in this class, takes bits from calc 1-3 and diff eq. He actually has an applied background in engineering, unlike most math people. I use nooms in all my other classes! Tough but fair grader.

Repeats himself about 6 times before moving on, covers overheads so you can't read ahead on them, talks about his family and grad school a lot. Maple projects were really easy to complete. He also asks questions about Maple commands on the tests. Caters to the slowest in the class by going at a snail's pace. Very irksome. Come on people!

i think tebeest is the best prof at kettering. he takes up the whole class time, to the second, and he lectures the whole time, but he makes it interesting and he explains things extremely well. his tests are marginally difficult, but if you pay attention in class you will do very well. take him if you want to actually learn something.
