math122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is a great professor, he knows his math well. Quizzes are really important and essential to your grade. Sometimes it may seem it's easy, but it really isn't. Study old tests and quizzes for the final. The final was very similar to the practice final and that saved me. I could have gotten a B if I did a little better on a few tests.

math 252 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He knows his math very well. He will make you feel dumb if you ask a question in class. He also takes off points for the insignificant reasons so make sure your homework/quiz/tests are PERFECT. The only reason I did get a good grade in this class was because of my peers. We met before every class period to go over our homework.

Math255, DiffEQ Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I learned so much in this class. He knows his stuff. He's not good at seeing where a student is coming from, that's not his style. He wrinkles his forehead when you make a mistake, like you're insane. But he shows you the streamline way to do things.

Math 122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I won't lie, he's pretty difficult and hard to adjust to, at first. A lot of your peers will drop out, but if you stick with him, he'll teach you all you need to know. He's also very helpful before class time.

He goes through everything very quick. And for some it may be hard to follow. He has test reviews sheets that are very helpful. drops one test grade and two quizes.

Math 122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He is an extremely difficult professor. He is inconsistent, unclear, and not very helpful. He teaches Math 122 as he teaches his upper-division classes. I recommend that you do NOT take him.
