Very unclear, disorganize and he falls of subject all the time, he goes from math to physics. Not a good professor, i feel like sometimes he doesnt know what hes doing. DO NOT pick this professor.

Okay so heres the DL. It doesn't MATTER which math professor you take, if you don't put forth the time and effort you will receive a bad grade. Most of the reviews I see here are probably lazy students who only put like 2 hours of work per week or less. You need to make peace with all the material if you want to succeed or else GOOSE!!!!!

Very funny guy =) We had fun during his class that's why it was interesting to attend the class. I got an A just doing HW, i went over HWs before exams and got A's. Very SIMPLE - do your HW you will get A for sure!!!! He explains material in easier way than the book. Gives you tricks how to solve faster! 4 exams and a final. No calculators.

Although his exams are challenging, they are not impossible. Of course, if you want an A, you have to earn it. It's college, after all- at this level, children leave themselves behind.

Not a great teacher but you shouldn't fail. He tries to help but he's so bad at clarity.

Still taking this prof for business calc. absolutely terrible. no organization skills, lectures make no sense. he offers extra credit for tests but he doesn't explain how it works. if you ask him a question, he won't answer it directly. he doesn't know what he's doing. do not take him.

The Truth: This professor is disorganized, unable to clearly relay his thoughts and teaching skill properly to his students, and is all over the place. Very boring lecture and wast of time. You wont learn anything at all,JUST an easy class to pass. SO, to pass all you have to do is reveiw his pass exams from the semester before, exactly similiar!

Good physics professor. Unorganized but if you keep your eyes on the board, you will understand. Very fair too! 4 exams (drops lowest one) and a final. His tests are better than you would expect. Very possible to get a passing grade on each. The final was cumulative and very similar questions of previous exams. Drive to biscayne bay, is worth it.

The guy is brilliant and knows his stuff. He is just on a much faster pace than most can endure. Otherwise he truly cares about his students and enjoys what he does. I have tons of fun in his class. Just make sure you get the right answer or GOOSE!! haha funny guy. Just make sure you study, its not an easy subject by any means. He gets my vote!

Once you really try to pay attention you'd get used to the way he presents things and also realize he's orderly disorganized (if that makes sense). Curves a bit n gives extra credit so no real way to fail once you commit to do some studying on ur own. physics test are mult. choice n for both trig and physics the same questions show up on the final

I HAVE NEVER RATED ANY PROFESSOR UNTIL NOW AND I MUST SAY HES THE WORST MATH TEACHER THERE IS AT FIU. I WISHED I DROPPED HIS CLASS FROM THE FIRST DAY, BUT I THOUGHT THERE WAS STILL HOPE IN PASSING HIS CLASS. I DONT USUALLY LISTEN TO THE RATINGS FROM OTHER STUDENTS, BUT SINCE THIS IS THE FIRST TIME IM ACTUALLY WRITING I HOPE SOMEONE LISTENS TO ME.

Do not take this professor for any class... I still can not believe he is still allowed to teach, FIU should do something about this guy. Very disorganized, he is definitely a mess and lets not talk about his notes. If you are a med student and you are thinking about taking the mcat do not take him, you wont learn anything.

this teacher is professional when it comes showing what he knows about physics but he wont do everything for you. if you are a person that wont study dont take him because the test are easy if you go home and study but it will be hard if you dont. trust listen him but try to understand the concepts on your own and it will be an easy grade. and he c

I don't know what to say without insulting this guy. He is an unorganized train wreck. Handwriting is horrible and his notes are impossible to follow. The only good thing is that half of his test is take home and he gives points for homework and masteringphysics online. Super nice guy and probably a trip to hang out with, but not a good teacher.

I took him for college alegbra. He was ALWAYS at least 45 mins late and rusehd everyone out. He told us to read before but he didnt use the book to teach. He made up his own forumlas and terms. So, when you go to get help no one can help you because they cant figure out his formulas or what youre doing because his notes are so bad.

He's a very nice man but he sucks at teaching trig. You basically have to teach yourself. lets just say i didnt pass. RUN!

I guess he is a nice guy but he is a terrible teacher. He is very difficult to understand and what he writes on the board is incomprehensible. His tests are made by him so the questions are nothing like you have done in the book. It is as if he expects you to know trig already. Don't take this class with this professor, seriously.
