MTH170 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A
"Tests are tough" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Tough Grader"

I'd advice any future student of his to visit him if they don't understand, or see the math tutors. They're extremely helpful in explaining whatever you're confused about

"Tough Grader" "Tests are tough" "Hilarious"

He is a tough grader but can help when asked for. He teaches through powerpoint so the class becomes quite boring. Take his class if you are ready to see bad grades on your test!

College algebra Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A
"Participation matters" "Hilarious" "Skip class? You won't pass."

I took this class over summer and it was hard but if you pay attention and take notes and do homework you will likely pass. He is funny and spastic but paying attention is very important he went fast very fast since it was 8 weeks but he is still very clear. He was a great teacher but not if you arent interested or not paying attention.

MTH160 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Frost is eh. If I didn't take this class in high school before taking his class I would have failed. The way he teaches is horrible, and I even enjoy math. He is a hard test grader you have to show your work the way he taught you, which is the hard way.

Math 030 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B

Not a good teacher! Goes very quickly and expects the class to know stuff we didn't go over. He has a very odd grading system with some questions being worth as much a 7 points and some as low as 2. He gives partial credit which helped out. He is sarcastic and is extremely strict about his cell phone policy. I would not recommend him at all!

Mth130 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: F

Taking Jim Frost for college algebra over the summer was both a waste of my time and money. He barely knows what he's doing and has to be corrected 2-3 times each class. You better hope someone in your class knows college algebra better than he does, or you will find that Mr. frost is all over the place and teaches incorrectly. "Any questions?Good"

Do not take this teachers class! He is very rude and does not want to help students. I have never had a teacher of this poor quality. I'm sure the school has received many complaints about this guy, but has not done anything about it. Consider yourself warned.

If you want to be respected by Mr. Frost, then you should also respect him. He doesn't like your phone out and he will take points off your next test if he catches you more than once. He is not as bad as everyone here makes him sound however I do think that he teaches pretty fast. A good thing about him is that he does give lots of partial credit.

MATH140 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He was not very approachable and I didn't feel like he really wanted to help. People would ask questions on how to do something and he would say I'll get to it later and never would

MTH160C Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Worst teacher I've had at Meramec. He is very funny and I have a good time in class, but he can't teach. He moves very fast, does not fully explain how to do problems, and is very unclear. He asks for questions but never actually answers them. You can do well but you're going to have to learn on your own.

Math160C Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

While unclear at times, Mr. Frost gives test that are tailored to what he taught and he grades very easily (tons of partial credit). If you do the homework, you will do well in this class. Mr. Frost can really help if you listen to him.

MTH140 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

You know, the class isn't that difficult, it's just you're going to have to learn everything on your own. Mr. Frost knows the material but he cannot relate any of it to the students. I do not recommend taking the class if you're looking to pursue math and especially not if you struggle with math

honestly have nothing negative to say about him. he is a fantastic instructor who constantly pushes his students to think critically about what they read. guys dont listen to other students because they are suck on math and they expect to find it easy. in general math classes dont depend on instructors,thus if you are stupid then dont blame others

MTH141 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He skips steps when writing out the notes and goes to fast. We had Mymathlab online homework and I constantly had to email him about assigning h.w. or quizzes.. Very disorganized! One positive note is that he is a flexible grader typically on tests. Usually each question is worth 7 pts and he will give you partial credit. Final big part of your gra

MTH060 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I kind of liked Mr. Frost personally. He is a character, a funny and interesting guy. But he talks way too fast, his homework assignments are worth practically nothing, and he doesn't exert any control over his class. The kids run roughshod over him and it can be very distracting. Not a good prof to have if Math is not a strong point.

No doubt Mr. Frost is a hard teacher. In order to be successful in his class you have to come prepared. He likes it when student come during office hours for questions. With Meramec's math tutoring, Frost's office hours, and the Precalc SI Leader there is no excuse no to do well.

The worst possible math teacher!!! He doesn't really teach, he tells you how to do the work without showing you how to do the work. If there is anyone who needs this math class make sure you don't take HIS class. He is absolutly the worst teacher I have ever had.

Tough Teacher. I find myself laughing a lot in his class, he is hilarious, but he is not the greatest teacher. Follows the guidelines of the committee and doesn't bother making his own. I would say take this class if you have very good math skills and need to polish them up a little before calc, and you want to have a good time. He is VERY Funny...
