HE IS TERRIBLE. DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS. BY FAR WORST TEACHER AT TULANE. He is so unclear in all that he teaches in class and isn't even clear what are on his tests. He also doesn't make the final and doesn't care about his students.

He is without a doubt the worst professor at Tulane. Doesn't teach a useful thing in the lectures, therefore all the learning is done out of the book. Unorganized and just a general stain on society and the education profession.

Be prepared to teach yourself the lesson online. Very difficult class even when you look back at his old tests. No need to show up to class, but I've never missed. Good luck with Dupre.

I got very lucky and had all multiple choice tests with Dupre. If you are looking for a class where you don't have to show up, this is definitely it. Be prepared to teach yourself the lesson regardless of whether or not you show up to class. Look at his old tests online, they are pretty much the exact same just with number changes in the problems.

You don't learn anything because he can't teach. My high school teachers made the subject much more engaging and understandable to all. An embarrasment to Tulane. Not to mention this year's final was not written by him (but a higher calc teacher), and was absolutely impossible for everyone and had material that wasn't covered.

Worst teacher ever. He has no life. If you email him you'll never get a response. Has no idea what he's talking about. I learned absolutely nothing from his class. I hope he sees this comment and leaves Tulane.

Dupre is awful. I took calculus in high school and barely got a B in long calc. Very hard to learn the material.

I knew nothing about calculus when I entered his classes and know the same amount leaving it. I still got a B because the tests are easy but learned absolutely nothing from him.

Best teacher at tulane. Very clear with his lectures and tests are easy. Fun Fact: He starred in a very popular film called 11 days 11 nights part 2.

He was one of the instructors on mymathlab for my course in MAT 221 from Rio Salado online class. He was by far the most comprehensible teacher there. I wish they have more lectures from him online.

Don't take him if you have no stat experience. claims the grade is 3 tests and a final. everyone will fail the tests. he then has us take herbert's final and that final is your entire grade. i knew a bit of statistics and got an a on this final. better hope you have a good lab TA. she was the only saving grace. he's also rude and rambles on.

Test material completely different from what he teaches. I asked him a 'why' question and he responded with "that's just how it is". Misses class randomly, doesn't answer questions helpfully AT ALL. Class avg consistently below 50 but he never curves. Boring lectures. I only passed because of my amazing TA. If you have a good TA go to EVERY LAB!!!

Class is very confusing, but you do not need to attend. His tests are exactly like the practice tests he gives you in advance or he tells you exactly what will be on the test. Honestly, his course is extremely easy if you are smart about it - just do the practice tests and you will get an A.

Worst teacher, OF ALL TIME. If you're not a math genius and you need any sort of guidance outside the book, do not take this teacher.

Don't have to go to class. He gives 3 tests which aren't that bad; however, they don't matter much because you cannot get a final grade that was lower than your final test grade. So overall his grading system is pretty easy.

Be on the exam. The material is pretty straight-forward, so you could probably manage by taking your tests to the tutoring center -I didn't try- but it really isn't necessary. Dupre is helpful if you don't understand something, and he repeats himself a lot -a mark of a good math teacher, in my book. He's disorganized, but he knows his stuff.

Scores. Second, lab attendance is mandatory -because you have a quiz which factors into that 15%- but class attendance is not. However, if you go to class every day, you will eventually understand the material on the test better -tests come from the lecture, not the lab. He posts a practice exam which gives you an almost perfect idea of what will

He is very confusing in lectures and it is not uncommon for students to do poorly on tests. He uses a complicated system to scale grades (it involves dropping some test/quiz grades, replacing grades with a higher final grade. I think it might change from semester).He is nice enough.

Easily the worst teacher I have ever had. Do anything you can not to take him. I am really confused as to why someone like this is teaching at Tulane. His lectures have nothing to do with the tests and he makes no effort to be clear, it is as if he enjoys confusing his students. This is the most useless class, especially for business majors.
