"Tough Grader" "Skip class? You won't pass."

This professor is great at teaching calculus and helping you understand. His downfalls are that he can be rude (depends what day you catch him) and sometimes just shows no concern for students' well-being. I personally encountered much self-righteousness and disrespect but it's worth a good chance for an A in calculus.

"There for you" "Amazing lectures" "Participation matters"

Great professor. If you do the homework, you are going yo be prepared for the tests. DO NOT be late for class, it is better not to go and watch the lecture online (yes! he has all his lectures online) if you are running late. He is great and very clear

"Would take again" "There for you" "Amazing lectures"

Excellent professor!! Took him for the fall semester not knowing what to expect, especially because I'm a freshman and it was an online class. So far, I've gotten As on all my tests, and assignments. The lecture is clear, and he is always willing to answer questions by email! Loved the online class!! Take him!

"There for you" "Would take again" "Gives good feedback"

Awesome professor that makes math super easy. Constantly updates his website with class info, has online videos in case you miss class (or don't go),tells you what will be on the exam, has extra office hours (even on weekends!) and will gladly take the time to give you all the help you could possibly need, even after you've taken his class. Awesome

"Would take again" "Respected by students" "Amazing lectures"

This guy was born to teach. Try to take calc w Rosenthal. If you can't, or are absent, his lectures are all free on itunes which you should definitely watch. He's super clear and anticipates any questions we'll have. Just don't be late to class. Seriously.

One of the best math professor I've had at FIU. I failed this class when I first took it and I came into this class with a lot of reservations. However, Professor Rosenthal made the material so easy to learn & nearly impossible to fail. Do the homework because the test is composed of problems very similar to it and don't be afraid to ask questions.

I don't understand why anyone would have an issue with him unless they are rude themselves. I am easily distracted and love that he's strict with the class. He responds to emails quickly and practically has endless office hours, INCLUDING WEEKENDS!!! He will do everything he can to help you pass. HIGHLY recommend.

Took this online and he is a great teacher. bus calc was very hard for me but i was able to pass. His lectures were online and very helpful. 3 Tests in class worth 20% each, 21 mcgrawhill connect quizzes worth 50% in total and a final exam in class worth 25%. The class was hard for me but he is extremely helpful

I hated math prior to him. Failed MAC1105 twice and moved on to other things. His online class was AMAZING. He is so clear in his lectures that I rarely had questions and when I did he answered within minutes every time. Very fair grader and you can tell he isn't out to get you on his tests. TAKE HIM!!!!! for MGF1106 too!

He is awesome, Rosenthal is my favorite professor. He makes you learn math, not just rote memorization like some teachers. Explains everything clearly and does reviews of obscure topics from algebra/trig/etc. that are relevant to the class. Plus he is funny, which keeps things interesting, reduces boredom with the occasional joke. Awesome prof!

Bad teacher, I tried my hardest and took all his advise (Extra book work) and even went to his office hours. But he had no sympathy for how hard I tried for his class. He did not want to help me at all.

Great professor, very willing to help and make sure you pass the class. The exams are all based on the HW questions, and he posts the grades up a few days after the exam. If you're not the best at math but need the credit, TAKE THIS PROFESSOR.

He is the best teacher as far as clarity goes in the math department. But, the amount of homework is insane, expect to employ 20 hours a week on doing it. Exams are easy but his grading style is unfair. Expect to lose points for not putting parentheses and other silly things; he wants things done HIS way. Plus, he is arrogant and condescending.

Mr. Rosenthal is an excellent teacher. Math has never been my best subject, but with the help of his videos and office hours, I understood the majority of the concepts. 3 exams, and one final cumulative exam..if you do all four kinds of homework he assigns (only one kind is graded), you'll ace the class, even online.
