MTH1220 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." "Lectures are long"

Great teacher, with a very quirky sense of humor. Seems really intimidating at first, but he is really a great guy who just wants his students to do well.

MATH300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I had Michael Potter for Precal II and Cal I, and honestly he's not bad. Yes there is soooo much hw but you need the work to understand how to do it; plus he uses a lot of hw probs on tests. Keep the tests! He reuses questions. Ask if you dont understand. No questions means time to move on to new. Office hours will be best friend too.

MATH100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Show up and do the work. You only get 3 absenses. DON'T WASTE THEM or use them if they are not needed. Teaches everyday all class. Helps outside of class during office hrs. Take good notes. If he says it's important, STAR it. He'll use the question again. Keep all your tests. Some of the same questions appear on final.

MATH100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He's really cool. Kind of random sometimes but he's intelligent. Really good with breaking a problem down. He'll spot your errors pretty quickly. Good at reteaching something if it wasn't clear the first time. Be prepared for A LOT of practice problems for homework. Don't let the math book out of your site, you'll use it a lot for HW.

Math 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Mr. Potter is a wonderful teacher and even more importantly, a great person to be around. He is never afraid to go through all of the steps that are needed in understanding and working a problem. I am thankful that he will give you his own personal time to help you with whatever problem may arrise. I suggest anyone who is taking a class with him, to pay attention. He's a young and wise person, he knows his way around a math problem for sure!!

Excellent teacher. Follow directions always! I got -10 points because I had the right graph drawn on the wrong answer paper. Frustrating at times, but I have much respect for him as he is a good teacher.

Math 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

The tests can be misleading at times. Maybe he should work on rewording some of his questions. Also being more approachable when a student(especially the entire class) has an objection to a question would be desirable. After all, it isn't a personal insult, and some flexibility would be appreciated.
