130 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: INC
"Lectures are long" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Get ready to read"

Many students dropped after first exam. Must come to class Everyday ! There is 5 exams they all consist of 2 chapters, must do a review & practice test of both chapters and also an overall sample test in order to take an exam(ALOT OF WORK). Self taught class if math isn't your subject & you cant teach yourself , this class isn't for you.

Math 130 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He is an amazing teacher! He is very nice and is willing to work with anyone who needs help! I took his hybrid class and I love it! Although it is a lot of work you can pass his class if you just do the work. Best math teacher I have ever taken.

Math 130 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I loved this class, he makes you think about why you are using math instead of just applying it to the problems. He really cares about his students and it shows, you will do well if you apply yourself and show up to class. Math is not my favorite and I loved this class! Take him =)

Math130 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

A very difficult teacher, irritable, grumpy, puts you down. He goes off topic constantly....he hates stupid questions. Whatever you do, do not take this teacher!!! He is horrible. Some teachers love there job and you can just tell by how they teach...He hates his job. I re took this math class with a better teacher and got an A.

MATH130 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This class is half lecture & a program called aleks. So, no need of textbook, only the $50 program .Plus, sample tests are exactly like the test he gives once a week. His lectures are based on students questions, so pay attention. If you dont, your doing no good to yourself. This class is easy, if you do all your work on time & ask questions.

Math 130 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This class can be a very easy class or a hard class. Depending on the knowledge you have. Most of the work you do is on a program called Aleks that you have to pay ($50). The textbook isnt needed. Overall, he is rude and expects you to know your stuff. You pretty much teach yourself the content. I do not recommend him.

Stat 1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He's a very wise cracking professor with a sense,of humor. Enough about his personality, his sample test are a replica of the actual exam, thus, if you don't thoroughly do the sample, it's unlikely you'll pass the exam. His accent is strong yet not difficult to grasp; however I relied more on the book than lectures. I got a B in the overall course.

STAT1E Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I am so glad to take Prof. Ara's Stat 1 hybrid class. The tools we use online are very helpful. Just do all your homework on time (pref before class meeting). Assignments and tests are good guides and he helps so much in clarifying the material. The class is VERY convenient with my schedule. Be diligent and organized and you'll get an easy A.

STAT1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Prof. Araeipour was a great instructor! I took his hybrid class where the brunt of the material must be self learned by the student. But,he always maximized class time and clarified any material. Also, during class he would specify how he wanted the answers written on tests to maximize points. Even being a procrastinator I managed to pull an A!

Stats1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I have great interest in this subject. Stats class wasn't very difficult. He doesnâ??t takes the time to explain and assumes everyone is smart. He makes you feel stupid. His accent is a little hard to understand. He never call his student by name. I hate it when he called out "CLASS!" when he want response.

Stat1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Mr. Araeipour is a pretty good teacher. statistics itself is a difficult topic so no matter what, you do need to take the time to study, read the book, and practice. Yes he had a short temper but he did a good job teaching the class. He didnt take much time to review certain things, but he was pretty good at explaining most things.

Stats1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I took his statistics class as a hybrid class. Attendance is definitely mandatory. The videos and sample tests were pretty much my teachers. He just went over the answers to the sample test and the exams. Gave help if you asked but very condescending tone. You'll pretty much have to teach yourself. Exams are similar to sample tests.

MAth45 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Horrible! Barely explains his work and expects too much out of his students. Babbles on about useless and irrelevant stuff, like when he starts talking on and on about what you'll learn in Calculus. Talks a lot about how important education is instead of trying to teach us the material. Has a really thick accent and is hard to understand sometimes.

MATH130 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Makes math fun. Encouraging, but lets you know you have to do the work to pass. Wants you to succeed. Fast paced. Pay attention. Don't miss class. Flexible on textbook. Can use older versions or international edition. Don't waste your money on MyMathLab. He doesn't require it. Most important, do all homework immediately to not get behind.

Math45 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This class is quite difficult. I struggled the entire semester. He expects students at this level to really understand all math concepts prior to this level. Nevertheless, as long as you do your best and complete all the assignments it's possible to pass. I should have failed and passed with a C.

I actually enjoy math and have had great instructors in the past. Unfortunately, this man is not one of them. He lacks the communication skills needed to interact with his students. He taught us nothing. The videos and books were my teacher. He also has a tendency to incorrectly post the wrong answer. Do NOT take his class.
