MATH 327 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Professor Warner doesn't bother with a course website, syllabus, email, office hours, or -- oh ya -- even attending his own exams. As a result, cheating is rampant. This is as bad as it gets.

Math 328 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Warner is a bit of a legend to any and all of those he's taught. While he is notorious for his post-lecture disappearing act and his no-nonsense approach to teaching, his passion for mathematics is clearly evident. He's tough but fair. Go to class and write down EVERYTHING this guy says, because lecture examples do show up on exams.

Warner is okay. You can tell that he really knows his stuff and is really smart. Make sure to go to lecture. There are a ton of notes each day and he basically makes the exams (3 total, 100 pts each) based from the lectures. He doesn't give that much partial. There are weekly hw's that are graded, but I don't think it's counted towards your grade.

Horrible instructor. Don't make any small mistakes on the exams as he doesn't give partial credit. Also he doesn't allow notes on exams. Best to avoid his class if you can.

MATH 328 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Terrible. Get out while you still can. His tests are just a measure of whether you have an eidetic memory or not. There is no competency, it's merely memorization. (And obscure memorization of scattered facts) Tests are your grade. Take the class another term if he's teaching. Just avoid at all costs. His lectures are TERRIBLE AND USELESS.

MATH324 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Prof. Warner is the most straightforward professor I've ever had, a real no-nonsense kind of guy. He shows up, goes to town on the chalkboard, and leaves after 50 min, make sure to take notes. Also, he has really funny sayings that he uses during his lectures. All and all, one of the best professors I've had at UW!

Math328 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

No syllabus, no email, no course website, no office hours (or probably 30 mins per week), so get prepared if you have to take his class!!!

Professor Warner is something of a rarity nowadays, he doesn't have a syllabus, no office hours, doesn't answer emails and his exams are typed on a typewriter. If you have a hard time understanding math and need some help from the teacher, stay away, if not, you might find his style of teaching refreshingly old school

MATH327 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I would like to emphasize that this is NOT A CLASS YOU WANT TO TAKE IF YOU LIKE GETTING HELP FROM THE TEACHER!! Dr. Warner does not have a syllabus, email, office hours, or website. What he does have is tenure. Nobel Prize to anyone who can get letter of recommendation from him. This guy is like a legend to me, but not a good one.

Once you get past the fact that he is pretty unfriendly and doesn't provide help outside of class, you will realize that he's a good professor. While it may not seem like it at first, he really has a passion for mathematical theory. Lectures are hard to follow, tests are easy. My grade was much higher than I thought it would be.
