MATH241 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A+

Honestly, taking Justin has brought up my semester GPA by several tenths of a point. I don't mean I would have gotten that much worse of a grade in calc 3 without him; I mean that the sheer time that he saved me by actually teaching in lecture so that I didn't have to teach myself directly translated into time I could invest in other classes.

I love Justin!! He is a great teacher and he doesn't try and trick you on exams. If I could take another class with him I would. He is funny and adorable and he walked on his hands during class. notes are very helpful and his teaching style is crystal clear. He writes everything out clearly on the board and is just fantastic

I believe the "4.9" given, at the moment, for this professor is very accurate. He is as good as people say he is. He is so energetic, kind, smart, funny, charismatic - its almost unreal how good he is.

MATH410 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Very popular guy with a great teaching style: everything is written on the board and he slows down if you ask for more explanations. Lots of curving because this course it very hard!

A rare combination: REALLY good teacher AND a really easy grader. That actually never happens. Plus, he's really awesome.

This guy has the gift. He is the best teacher I've ever had. His energy and clarity make subject matter easy to follow and he explains the reasoning behind the material so it's not just plug and chug. If you ever have an opportunity to take a class with this guy, do NOT pass it up. It is an experience worth having.

Prof. Justin teaches the material by going step-by-step through each example and he even does ex. of harder problems(which other profs rarely do). He is very down to earth for a person who holds a PhD. Assignments: 4 exams (none dropped), 4 matlabs, 12 quizzes (2 dropped), and the final. Doesn't really curve grades since the average is usually high

Math475 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Very good professor. Neat and organized lectures. Seems to really want his students to understand the material. His homework for this course (Combinatorics) was pretty difficult, but he is extremely helpful, and responds usually within minutes to emails. Highly recommend.
