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.

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.

He is a very good teacher. the class itself is hard. Calc 2 is no walk in the park yet he makes it so doable due to his teaching style. take him. but you have to try

Professor Rosenthal is awesome! I've watched all of his calc 1, calc 2, and differential equations lectures online and his lectures are the best that I've ever seen. He also has a good sense of humor so his lecture videos are not only informative but are fun to listen to as well.

This was not my first time taking this class and with this guy I fully understood him. My only advice is to keep up to date with everything he posts on blackboard. other than that he was really great and this class become like common knowledge to me.

If I could get an A in this class, anyone can. Great class and professor. The exams are exactly like the homework, so do the homework and you WILL pass. I took it online during Summer B and it is very manageable. Take this class with Rosenthal and you will pass and LEARN.

By far the best teacher I have ever had at FIU. His clarity and teaching style made me actually WANT to take more math classes with him, even though I'm done with the requirements.

Went everyday to class &did everything he told us to study. The problem isn't understandin the material, its not havin enough time to study everything he teaches us.Math majors should take this teacher. But if your not planin on majorin into Math or going into depth with math avoid his class. Unnecessary information is expected for you to memorize.
