"Tough Grader" "Amazing lectures" "Tests are tough"

absolutely no help given by hunter if you ask for it. very weird and awkward, wouldnt even acknowledge me if i saw him on campus, though he knew exactly who i was. Worked my ass off and should have gotten an A, clearly no leniency for final grades. avoid this to take calc with a teacher who doesnt have autism and can be available for help.

"Would take again" "Pop quiz master" "Gives good feedback"

Overall a good professor. Teaches in a comparatively slow pace, which makes his lectures more elaborate and easy to understand. I would highly recommend if you are a slow gainer at math.

"There for you" "Would take again" "Amazing lectures"

Makes a challenging course easier and understandable with his intuitive style of teaching and his desire to help students out. Prepares you for the infamous math common exams better than most math professors here. He was an absolute pleasure to have.

"Amazing lectures" "Clear grading criteria" "Would take again"

Took him for Math112, best prof for Math at NJIT. Gives practice papers before the commons and final, which will be 80% similar to the one in commons or final. Teaches the student exactly what is required in the exams as a result students normally do well in his class . I would take him again, If I had a chance.

Great professor that takes his time in teaching all lessons. We are never behind schedule and his lessons are paced slowly enough that even the most complicated of concepts are learned with ease.

Overall one of the best math professors NJIT has. If you are looking to understand calc 2 and go over examples instead of just pure theory, take Hunter. Calc 2 is a very challenging course, but Hunter will do all he can to make sure each one of his students can reach their full potential.

MATH 222 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

BEST MATH PROF AT NJIT BY FAR! Seriously, he made Diff Eq SIMPLE. EASY even. I know way more DE than healthy because of him. The book is terrible; follow his lecs closely & you'll only use it for hw. Super amazing office hrs. There's a "open group" quiz almost every class. He tries to counter the abysmal Math Dept. & all their games as best he can.

My failing grade was really caused by my pure laziness, this teacher deserved better from me, anyway, he a gret prof for people struggling in calculus, though a bit weird. His method is more focused on practice problems rather than the theory.

extremely good teacher, made every section easy to understand. He works at a slower pace than most, but covers everything in dept. Hes very laid back as well and is a nice guy. He made calc 2 easy in my opinion, i do not see how anyone could not like him.

MATH111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He expects students to know certain things that they may not know if they're taking calc 1 for the first time, and his methods aren't for everyone. However, I found the way he explains certain things to be very helpful. He does give quizzes on material covered that day, but he lets you work with others, which helps to reinforce what you learned.

Great Professor. He does problems right out of the book and goes makes sure that everyone understands the material. If you are looking to do well, take him as a professor

By far one of the worst professors I have had. His teaching methods are not valid and he writes too slow. He expects people to know too much and does not teach well. He has weekly quizzes that have material on it from the day of the quiz. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!

I'm pretty sure I'm failing. I don't think Hunter's teaching methods are for me. He's not a bad professor. He just expects you to know certain things and a lot of times will skip certain necessary steps. If you want samples without really understanding the process, take him. You'll either end up in 24 hr. tutoring or buying lots of dummy books.
