"Lectures are long" "Tests are tough"

Dupre is probably THE worst professor I have ever had. He rambles in his lectures, and makes his tests impossible to understand. DO NOT TAKE HIS CLASSES

1150 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B

I've always been okay at math, but he just made it impossible. Never knew what was going on or what he was saying and his emails about assignments didn't make sense ever???? Eventually had to hire a tutor and learned a whole semester of material in two hours, and I think that says a lot about his teaching or lack of.

By far the worst math professor I''ve ever had. He doesn''t even tell the class what chapters or sections were in and his quizzes have nothing to do with what he very poorly tries to explain to us. Also he stared in a soft-core in the ''90''s

TERRIBLE. I took his calc class to complete a requirement. Makes it seem like the material will be easy and then will randomly put stuff on the tests that you have never seen before. The first 2 tests and quizzes were very easy (I got a 99 average in calc in high school) and then the last test and final were things he never showed us! Rude man!

MATH-1140 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

I attended every class and Dupre taught me nothing. I took AP Stat in High School and his lectures literally had nothing to do with statistics. Had a good TA who taught me 100x more than Dupre ever did. Tests were fairly easy - similar to old practice tests. Final is very difficult - studied very hard and wound up with an A in the class. Pointless

One of the worst teachers I've ever had. Does not teach you anything. I learned all I know about statistics from my terrific TA in the lab. Dupre does not know how to teach. I don't really understand how he even has a job at this school. Practically impossible to comprehend. Very unclear.

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.
