The BEST Math professor I've ever had! Helped me understand a number of important math concepts that I had been struggling w/ for the past 2 years. He's awesome!!! If you pay attention in his class and sit in one of the front rows, there is ABSOLUTELY NO reason why you wouldn't understand what he is trying to teach you. If you do think you his lect

Decent professor. Not great but not terrible. He did a so-so job. In class, he shows lots of proofs and not a lot of examples. Due to a lack of personality, when he does crack a joke the whole class erupts.

ok as far as math teachers go; seemed very indifferent to student requests as far as speaking louder or writing more legibly; didn't seem to care too much about the students

he tells you straight up that the learning is up to you , he's there to show you some examples, not spoon feed you the info. its not high school anymore. grow up, open the book, do some examples, and it shouldnt be to bad.

MAth151 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He didn't address any of my concerns, I felt like I just dealing with the man in the mirror. The curves on his exams were tough, I just couldn't beat it. Very simple, everything was black or white. When it comes to tough grades he was a real smooth criminal. His class is simply not a thriller. Also Billy Jean.

Made stuff harder than it had to be, not good at making math understandable, proved everything, made it hard to pay attention when most of what was taught didnt matter.

MATH 655 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: N/A Grade Received: N/A

He was very clear and precise (he followed Munkres very closely). He included a bit of extra material as well. My only complaint is that his tests were ridiculously easy.

Maybe he should spend more time teaching and less time singing 'Billie Jean'. That's ignorant.

He is a nice guy, but didn't know how to teach the C course. He's willing to help you if you go and see him.

Course is ridiculously hard, and Jackson is about as much help as a monkey teaching math. He simply does the examples out of the book, and thats it....No help at all to attend lectures, just read the book because thats all he does anyway. Terrible

You would spend your time wisely to skip his lecture and read the book. He merely copies whats in the book.
