MATH3090 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Absolutely love this guy. He's the kind of Math professor you dream of having. Lucid explanations, straightforward tests, and he's fun. Accent is thick, but you get used to it. Every class is like a stand-up routine. The class was easy, but that's b/c he's talented and breaks the difficult information into bite-sized morsels of mathy goodness.

MATH1210 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Possibly one of the best teachers I've had for any class. I came to Tulane hating calculus; now it is one of my favorite subjects. This man is one of the nicest people I have ever been taught by, and his sense of humor is wonderful. Tests are straightforward and lectures are short and to the point.

He was an AMAZING teacher. Very clear with his lectures, great sense of humor, tests are straightfoward, and he lets you out of class early on Fridays. This man is epic.

So funny. Really cares about his students and wants them to do well. As far as difficulty goes, it is calculus. But he makes it as straightforward as possible. Tells you exactly what type of problems will be on the tests.

CALC121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Best part of the class is this guy's humor. He's absolutely hilarious. While the lab section was horrible, kwasik himself is a fairly good teacher, although he does have a very thick accent. Tests are not overly difficult, although with only 5 problems, one mistake can really hurt you.

I would have never believed that I would enjoy calculus this much. Kwasik makes it fun and easy to understand even though he has a very thick accent. He makes jokes during class and calls his tests an EXTRAVAGANZA! While all my friends were failing calc with the horrible calc teachers tulane has to offer, i was making A's/B's. Def TAKE THIS CLASS!

IF YOU ARE BAD AT MATH TAKE HIS CLASS. He is by far the best long calc teacher here. The homeworks are graded which is annoying, but he is the only teacher who actaully teaches and he is really nice and funny and understanding

Prof. Kwasik is one of the best teachers our dept. has. He is understanding, tries to help the student, and is very efficient in his presentation. He covers all material well, and any student who performs poorly either doesn't have an adequate math background or didn't put in enough time.

CALC 122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Kwasik is by far the coolest calculus teacher i have ever known. he approaches a topic in several ways and encourages his students to ask questions or for clarification. a really nice guy. he gives cheat sheets for the tests but beware the exam does not allow them which made them a crutch in the long run. homework problems assigned in lab (do them)

Took Calc II with him, bombed the first test but ended up with an A in the class. Don't be scared of his accent, he's a great teacher, tells jokes in class, and after visiting other Calc II teachers' study sessions concluded that he is by far the most lenient on grades and cheat sheets. Loved him!

Dude's hysterical- not a math major, but I had fun in the class for sure, and learned stuff to boot. Accent is charming, and if you're honors, he pretty much makes the grades up. Attendance= not important: one day I brought in a newspaper and read during class. Wait for it when he drops or breaks the chalk...

Very nice guy, tries to make everything clear. Gives practice tests out that almost exactly match the exams, lectures clearly. Pronounces some things in interesting ways, but most people seem not to have a problem understanding him - ex: "book" = "boo"+"k". Great teacher.

cal 3 was really easy with kwasik. His practice tests were exactly like the ones he gave, he went over almost everything that ended up on the final, and he was easy to understand...considering Im Russian. There was some language barrier with some people, but definatly the guy to take.

Great guy - he'll help you with questions even if it's ten minutes before the test. Ends class early sometimes if its nice outside, and lectures well. He drops the lowest test grade and some quizzes, which helped me get an A.

Calc II was great with Kwasik. He is clear and concise, has great communication skills, and can explain the material. He doesn't waste any time, but still manages to make it fun. His tests are easy to prepare for and do not promote stress. Great class to take.

He's funny and clear during class. His tests are from problems straight from the book but he doesn't use a lot of book examples during class.
