MA 118 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

His class was easy, anybody who says otherwise was just bad at math. He is a extremely nice person. His teaching isn't great, but he will help you if you ask. His quiztest are really simple and are the base questions. You may have to learn more on your own, but you should be fine. It is a boring class, but its math. All math classes are boring.

MA141 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Calculus is hard enough. I would not recommend this professor unless you are a math whiz. We completed lots of problems from the textbook and the lectures were boring and unclear.

Serious angel. He is old but very sweet. Reads from the textbook so you will fall asleep but the topics arent hard and the quizzes are almost the same examples from the book. if you open your book before a quiz youll do fine. take him!

MA118 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Class is extremly boring, but it is important to go. Calc is a class where you can't fall behind. However, Barone doesn't help that much. He doesn't teach...he 'teaches' by putting everything up from the online textbook onto a screen and rambles on. Key to the class: do all of your homework that he suggests and go to Learning Center if necess.

his class is like watching the weather, all he does is project the textbook onto the overhead and then mumble. nice guy, but you will end up sleeping in class and then teaching yourself topics out of the textbook before test. HARD GRADER.

sweet guy but is not a good teacher. if u havent taken calc in class do not take the class. if you have youll be fine. precal students from highschool dont take it. all he does is put the textbook on thr projector and reads from it; does not teach at all, he just rereads. DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO TEACH

He is a very sweet old man, but as a teacher he is one of the worst I've ever had. He literally reads the textbook and shows you how to do the example problems (which are already explained in the tb). He is not clear and makes things more confusing than they are. If you are stuck in his class, make a friend and study together - you will need it!

MA 118 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

If you have not taken calculus before and already received a good grade in it in high school then you are going to have the hardest and worst time of your life in this class. He is not clear at all and if you have a question he really won't answer it you can have your hand up all class. Having the laptop and using the software really does not make any difference. Out of all my teahcers in my lifetime I can honsetly say he has been the worst teacher I have ever had and ever seen teach.

He tries to make calculus easy and relevent. If you get math, this class will be a breeze. Half our class had As.

This teacher has to be one of the worst teachers i have ever had in my life...ended up dropping the class. No mid-term...supposedly a good final. Hard to follow..if you get behind you wont catch up!
