Cal 1 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A-

Easy class if you take advantage of it. Lets you use graphing calculator. Goes somewhat fast and is not very interactive with his class. If you have taken calc before and have somewhat of a grasp, take him, easy A.

MAT 1214 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A
"Hilarious"

The class can be an easy A if you use your resources correctly. He only gave us 10 quizzes and 10 assignments over the semester, in addition to 3 exams and the final. As long as you don't screw up those few grades (because he will NOT let you make it up), you should be fine.

MAT3613 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A
"Hilarious" "Would take again" "Clear grading criteria"

This is a tough class and he lectures very quickly but you get used to it. Not much time for questions or interaction. HW due weekly, take home weekly quizzes also, but its not hard if you keep up. Very specific on what he wants and the tests are easy. I like this prof a lot, makes it seem easy. Must have the book. Don't get behind & you'll do fine

His class wasn't difficult if you went. If you missed a couple of days you could get the notes on blackboard and catch up. Funny guy, loves cracking jokes and makes class interesting. Exams were about 6 questions open ended. Very lenient on grading, as long as you got the concept you were fine. Have an A. Recommend him if you want a relaxed teacher

Attendance not mandatory but I highly suggest attending class. Quizzes are take home along. Test are easy if you study the notes and the test also have a take home portion. Recommend taking Arciniega for this course, he is also funny!

MAT 0213 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This developmental course was really easy for me to understand, although the professor has a strong accent and writes really unclear. The homework was easy to complete because it was all submitted through My Math Lab, and he made up reviews for our exams after we completed the first one.

1214 cal Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Most everything is online and pretty easy. Funny guy (if you even decide to attend. You can probably pass with minimal attendance) however, barely helps you individually. Emails to him will go unanswered for days at a time and when he does finally respond it's likely he'll just have you meet him in his office. Easy class, but not very helpful guy.

precal Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I loath that I had to pay to take this course AND for mymathlab. No point in going to class. Hes super nice but super lazy. Use mymathlab for everything, hw,tests,even the final. Basically taking an online course. Encourages cheating. Bad teacher, easy class

pre calc Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He doesn't know how to explain math! His accent cannot be understand. in the syllabus he told us everything online expect the final (25%) He gave you two attempts for each test and unlimited time and you can save your answers and complete later. Finally he said the final will be online so you can get A while you are at home but without knowing Math

MAT1214 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Funny guy, very easy going, and willing to help. Everything is online (awesome) but the final is not. Do not take him if math doesn't come easy to you. This is the first time I've taken Calc. and i will be retaking it next semester. However if you have been through the material I'd say go for it! super easy A if you know what you're doing.

MAT3613 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Basically teaches directly from the book, but usually modifies examples slightly to promote a better understanding of the material. Grades VERY leniently. As long as you do all the homework, (take-home) quizzes, and know what you're doing on the exams, it would be very difficult to receive any grade other than an A.

Math1 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Took Real Analysis I, took all the tests early, did the homework and the take-home quizzes, get an A. Simple as that. I read the earlier reviews and was surprised by what was said. Either he is another Armando Arciniega or a completely changed man. Subject is hard, not him

CAL3 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

My class was mostly online and extremely easy. No limits on HW and that made the tests extra easy if you feel my drift... found a loophole in mymethlab ;)but he's a cool and funny teacher. most likely easiest calc 3 teacher at UTSA. I got an easy A with little effort... hopefully it doesnt f me in the a.

Cal2214 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

There are very few upper division math professors that are this good at teaching, but he is definately one of them. He goes through problems and tests are written (instead of multiple choice). He is great at explaining and should you be confused about something he will go into further explanation. Definately one of my favorite professors.

This professor is very easy going. He will let you make up work and his tests all have a take home part. If you take the time to understand the homework the quizzes are easy. He gives credit for at least trying the problem. He teaches like you would expect a math professor to teach, all chalk and little chat.

MAT3613 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He is a very nice guy, but he is not a great teacher, and I think he's know it. His lectures are extremely fast paced and often confusing. To compensate, he grades his tests and quizzes very easily and will give you extra points on homework if you ask. It's not hard to make a good grade, but don't expect to learn much in his classes.

This guy is truely amazing... It was a really hard subject for me until I signed up for Arciniega's class and made a B. He's very understanding and allows makeup work as long as your not BSing. Work load is high so you cant stop going to class or not do the homework. Every part of his class is important!!! But its definitely worth the effort. =)

He's a great teacher! You do have to do your share of work but its a math class what do you expect? He does have quizzes every week but they're only 2 questions, Homework is every week. Tests aren't bad as long as you do homework. examples done in class help a lot also. Plus, easy grader on tests.
