Mr. Shew is AMAZING!! He's funny, intelligent AND he knows his stuff. He knows how to connect with you and teaches EXACTLY what is on his exams. He's an amazing teacher. I would take his classes all the way through calc if I could!

Though I hate math with a passion I loved his class. He is one of my favorite teachers of all time. For the first time a math class made complete sense. Definitely recommend his for those of you who are not math people because his class really helps!

Love this professor. But going on to calculus, it feels if i'm unprepared due to how easy he made trig.

MAT 150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I love this professor! I took him for MAT 150. No homework, no book. If you attend class and take notes its an easy A. I wish he was teaching higher math classes :( If you dont like math this professor goes in details. There is now way anyone would fail his class. Take his and you will not regret it!

MAT150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

While this guy is one of the better math professors around, he is not astounding. On tests, he will ALWAYS throw in several problems NOT covered in the review, and if you have a scholarship that requires an A average then you'd better get A+'s in other classes, because getting an A on Shew's tests can be really difficult and there is no homework.

He uses no book and knows his math inside and out - theoretical and applied. He is engaging and always willing to explain questions. The bad? He gets diverted easily and some use this to eat up time. In three months of class, only right/oblique triangles have been covered. No graphing of trig functions or higher order applications. I feel cheated.

TAKE HIS CLASS. I promise you won't regret it. He will go over problems multiple times so you know exactly how to do them when you take the tests. He makes everything crystal clear and is willing to go over anything you don't understand. I only wish he'd teach calculus!!!

He was alright. All I did was sleep in his class, and I passed with an A. I guess the class was easy because I knew most of the material that he was teaching.

Nice guy and the class is pretty easy considering his test are exactly like the study guides. He's kinda annoying though, with him asking every five seconds if what he's writing is correct. I guess it helps some people though. I recommend for someone who struggles with math.

I always struggled with math, but Mr. Shew changed that. His way of explaining things and the way he gives plenty of examples helps you remember how to solve different problems. He is also very funny and will keep you entertained with his old-school sense of humor. Tests aren't too difficult either, and you don't need to turn in HW.

Dr. Shew is a great Trig teacher. Teaches everything without the book so you don't have to buy a hundred dollar book and takes the time to show you exactly what hes doing.

Greatest math teacher ever. It was so easy. We took three tests, final is not cumulative. Tests are exactly like the study guide, around ten questions. Collected only about three of the homework worksheets. Take him if you want an A.
