I had Mr. Kreider for Differential Equations. He was the best math teacher I have had. I am now graduated and a working engineer. Go to every class and study. Your amount of effort will equal your grade as their are no suprises and you will learn. Hands down made my experience in classes better.

MATH222 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Probably one of the nicest professors I've ever met or had for a class. He's extremely helpful if you need the help. Also, he is willing to work with you if a situation arises in that you have to miss class (i.e. missing a week of class in an 8-week summer session). I wish all professors were like him.

Awesome teacher. Easy to talk to and very good at explaining in class/one on one. Highly recommend. Practice tests are very similar to actual tests, takes homework for a grade, and bonus opportunities. Wants you to succeed.

Prof Kreider is a fantastic instructor! His lectures were crystal clear, and so were his expectations of the class. Summer Calc II is not the easiest in terms of workload, but he certainly softened the blow. Highly recommended!

He is very good in explaining tough things in a very easy way. He was very helpful and funny throughout the class "Advanced Numerical Solution of Partial Differential Equation" which seemed a very difficult course to me at the beginning of the semester.

HCalc2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I currently have Dr. Kreider for Honors Calc II, and he has done a fantastic job! He is able to explain things in a way that is easy to understand, and he is always willing to answer questions. He always has a positive attitude, and he always says "Good morning" right as he walks into the classroom. I highly recommend him to anyone.

Two words: must take! His passion for teaching shows in the quality of his lectures and he's really helpful when you see him at his office hours. He's well liked amongst the students because he actually cares about your success. I wish every professor was like this guy. Dr. K is the man!

Dr. Kreider is really cool. His teaching style engages your attention. I have had professors who just wrote notes on the board and bored you to death. Dr. Kreider made math interesting. Ask around campus who the best math professors are and you'll hear his name come up often. One of the nicest professors I've ever met.

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

Whenever students talk amongst themselves on campus regarding math professors, Dr. Kreider's name comes up often along with Susan and Gerald Young and a few (very few) others. Simply put, he's just a great professor and a great person, period. From firsthand experience, the ratings on this website are accurate. Best math teacher in my opinion.

CALC1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I witnessed a classmate who came in 30 minutes late to an exam looking flustered, worried, and sweating profusely. Dr. Kreider asked him if everything was ok. Obviously the guy overslept. Dr. Kreider offered for him to complete his exam at his office. Other professors probably would have never done that. Dr. Kreider really cares about his students.

MATH221 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Kreider is probably the best math professor that the University of Akron and quite possibly the state of Ohio has to offer. He communicates the material very well and will take the time in class to go over the material again if someone doesn't understand. Very accessible with his office hours. Very nice guy. Has my highest recommendation.

Dr. Kreider is the man! He really wants you to do well and is very accessible after class and at his office hours. He makes a difficult subject like Calculus understandable. A lot of professors these days are more interested in research and less on teaching. Dr. Kreider really enjoys teaching and it shows!

Dr. Kreider cares for the success of his students and wants you to learn. He's personable, always willing to help and never condescending like some of his other peers at the University. He's actually pretty funny as well. Best math teacher, bar none.
