He's usually pretty helpful and fair. He doesn't take attendance but gives out assignments during class, so attendance is practically mandatory if you want to pass. The tests are pretty hard, so be prepared to study a lot of you want to do well on them. Overall, he seems like a cool guy.

Do not take if you dont need too. Unwilling to help, hard grader, very confusing. A lot of homeworker for little amount of points.

Hardest class I've ever taken. Not willing to help. I would ask for help and he would basically walk away. My advisor even said hes not good with one-on-one which is ridiculous since hes a teacher! A lot of homework and only worth 10pts altogether each chapter. Hard grader. Do NOT take if you don't need to!

Good professor, cares about what he teaches you. Good at explaining things in a way that makes sense. Would recommend to anyone planning on taking Statistics.

Dave is by far the best math professor that I have EVER had. He makes math interesting, and he is great at explaining things. He is a professor that actually cares about his students and their success. I had him for pre-algebra and statistics. I actually waited to take statistics until he was teaching it.I highly recommend him as an instructor.

Dave is such a great teacher. Statistics is not exactly an easy class in general and is definitely not an easy A. You have to show up to class so you can understand the material (you can't learn this stuff on your own) and you have to be willing to ask for help if you need it. Dave is extremely willing to help you out if you just ask.

Dave is an excellent teacher! He really knows the material he is teaching and presents it in such a clear manner. He also is very willing to answer any questions that his students may have. Statistics in general can be a bit overwhelming, but if you show up to class and understand the homework you should do well in Dave's class. I recommend him!

AWESOME PROF. Extremely clear, straightforward class. Atwood is very approachable for questions. Although he doesn't incorporate a lot of humor in his lectures which are a bit dry if math itself doesn't interest you, he is fun to talk with. Keep up with the homework.

He is a very clear communicator, a very fair grader, and a very nice person. No complaints here! You shouldn't have any problems, providing you keep up with the homework load, which in Statistics, can get pretty hefty.

He was not a very good teacher. He said we didn't need the book, but then throughout the semester he used it or look on from someone elses (How do you do that if no one bought it???) He moves really quick, cuts a lot of stuff out. He is not very organized, had D2L but didn't use it to post assigments.

Homework is an option but in all reality you need to do it in order to do well on his tests and in-class assignments. He assumes that you know everything from previous math courses taken, so I reccommend not taking him if you're not sure on your calc and trig skills just yet. Other than that he is an okay teacher.

This guy is amazing! Take his class!! He is willing to sit down and talk one on one with you which is very helpful. Just make sure you stay up on your homework! Although he doesnt check it everyday, you need to keep up on it to understand everything!

I'm old enough to be his mother, so I will NOT comment on the Hot/Not! Great teacher, moves along quickly but will stop to answer any questions.

Really good teacher. I hate math, and struggle with it all the time, and he helped to make it clear. Really wants to have his students understand. Very approachable. He talks quickly, but if you stop him and ask him to go over something again, he will (without making you look or feel stupid). An asset to RCTC.

He is a very sweet and kind person, but the class and material is extremely difficult and expect to spend a lot of time out of class working on assignments, homework, and online work. Tests are somewhat tricky. He will work with you though and spend time explaining material over and over. But, I did not get it at all. Glad to get a C!!!!

DAVID ATWOOD IS THE MAN! Seriously a good teacher who uses fun expressions like "slick" to liven up a dry subject. He often makes little technical errors when writing on the board but we love him for it. He also once shut down the super annoying guy in our class (in a nice way). Snaps for Dave!

It was a summer college algebra class so it moves really quickly and if you're rusty on your math skills you better brush up before hand otherwise you really struggle! If you need extra help though he's very willing to spend it with you and is very understanding.
