MATH 114 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I am warning you: DO NOT TAKE HIM. He makes this course very difficult and is very intimidating. He purposely writes the wrong answer on the board for you to figure it out yourself that it is wrong. I have taken calculus before and I have a tutor and I am still at a C average. Worst course I have ever taken.

MATH 114 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Do not take him for Calculus! I was great at math until I had his as a professor because he speeds through everything with no clarity. He expects you to know everything there is and there is no homework, which ends up hurting you. Avoid if you can

MATH114 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

The class is passible. However, it is very difficult to get above a B unless math is your passion. If you don't do the work his way, points are taken off. I recommend taking another professor if at all possible.

Father Levko wants a tough reputation at the school. Overall, the class is not as hard as people say IF you are willing to actually do the work. Calc is a hard class but if he sees you're trying and putting in the effort, you'll get the grade you deserve. The tests are hard but some questions come right from the homework so do all the problems.

If you are math major and/or love math, take his class. Although it is very hard, you will learn more than you would with any other teacher. Tests really were not that bad if you kept up with the work and really "learned" the calculus. If you're not a person, take xiong or carroll. overall, a pretty good teacher

MATH114 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

His calc is very hard. Tests are difficult but managable. He does give maximum partial credit, but it is very challenging. He knows anything and everything about calculus and can solve any derivative in less that 5 minutes.

MATH107 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

A very challenging calc class, I would not recommend it unless you have a strong background in math. The class average was usually in the low-mid 70s. You must do all the homework problems and look at the examples, they usually appear on the exams. Try to participate as much as possible it might help at the end of the semester with your final grade

Unless you have a strong math background, the class will be very difficult. dry humor, tries to lighten things up. he is a genius though and will answer any question you ever have. study alot!

MATH107 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

THis class was absolutely impossible. He kept using the same threat all year. "You should consider going back to 16", as if he didn't want us to do well. He spook so fast and really wouldn't slow down. The only time that I actually found him in his office was during the day I dropped the class. He was never around. Not recommended. Do not take.
