Okay, I am going to be quite frank. He is a great person as an individual, he is very respectful, mannerly and helpful person. However, as ironic as it may seem, his greatest strength is not teaching. This is how i managed to pass this class. If you go to itunes>library>type Florida international university>diff Eq like by Prof Rosenthal.

MAC 2313 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Not the worst professor ever, but very far from the best. While I'm sure he knows his math well, he has such a poor command of the English language that it becomes tedious to try to 1. Understand what he's trying to say and 2. The math he's trying to convey. If you do get stuck with this guy, be prepared to do most of your learning out of class.

mac2311 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

If you took pre-calculus in eleventh grade and took statistics in 12th, DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS for freshman year! Take something easier to refresh your mind on pre-calculus and trigonometry to get you ready for Calculus. I made the mistake of taking this class and i'm currently failing. I need outside help and tutoring with this.

mac2312 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor Tachim is a vary nice person, he is very willing to help students who come to him, although he isn't always very easy to understand. He has a thick accent but you get accustomed after a while. He is brilliant and spends a lot of time on the theory and not enough time on examples . He isn't the best but he isn't that bad either.

Math (calculus especially) is hard, but he does not teach it very well. He goes very fast, but he can be okay on a good day. He gives hard homework, but even if you understand how to do it, you will probably still have a hard time on the tests, which are very complicated for such a short amount of time. Good luck if you plan on taking him...

MAD3401 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Let me warm you guys. The material here is easier than calc.2, but the book is nowhere near as useful as the calc. book, so don't come at this thinking that this will be the "easy" class. The good news is that tests are similar to the HW, but that also means you must be able to do that HW in 1 hour. My advice is to study all his in-class examples.

I got an A in his class. His accent is strong, but the test was similar (not very though) to the assignments. It just takes a lot practice with the homework. Outside help was involved, so that could have helped for this class. :/

I have never met a prof. like him. He speeds through material like you have taken the class already. His test are not based on the material you covered in class or the textbooks. when you ask him a question he makes remarks like " we went over last class". And his accent is strong, the strongest i have met in a long time. Like most people say, STAY
