Math 54 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A
"Tests are tough" "Assignments galore"

DO NOT TAKE! Just as everyone else has been saying, he is a chill guy and all; however, he is not a good teacher at all. Always cuts class early (in addition to being late)!!! Cancels class with little-to-no notice. Does not explain concepts thoroughly, you will have to teach yourself. He doesn't take too many questions.

Math 54 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Sure, he is chill and pretty easy, but the worst professor I have encountered by far. He is extremely cocky, puts minimal interest into his class, and gets enjoyment out of making students feel stupid. You will have to teach yourself everything because he rushes through everything so the he can leave. I do NOT recommend him

Math 54 section Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: B

His test are easy, but he is a rude professor and does not like to answer questions. You have to teach yourself and when someone asks a question, he makes them feel dumb. He is cocky and talks about himself that sometimes he doesn't go over the material and then he expects his students to know it.

Math 26 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: B

He is nice and cool professor. He is hot and smart. He makes everything simple for you. The tests are multiple choice with some short answers. His tests are not hard if you work hard. He let you leave early and sometimes absent. The class is very chill. I got a B even i did not work hard. If i do, i'll get a A for sure. Just put effor in your work.

his lack of caring is hard & really affects the class. No structure, he thinks he's helping by preparing us for grad school professors like him but quite the opposite. You'll end up just teaching yourself the material in this class.

Math 84 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Chill dude, a little too chill. as far as teaching goes he's awesome! if it seems one ounce too complicated he'll drill it to the class until everyone understands or goes over it the first time very well! Reviews the homework, actually cares, a little arrogant but i guess you can't have it all in a professor. Id take him every time!

He is the chillest professor ever! Your classwork would mostly be about homework problems that classmates/you didn't understand. Also just go over review problems. Mostly grades on homework and quizzes/test! So do your best on those.

He's active as soon as he walks into class, he sometimes gives the 411, but he goes straight to the front and ask students if they had any questions on the homework; he goes over them on the board. He's not difficult, homework is giving everyday the class meets, but he explains it so easily that makes you fall in love with math.

Super chill and laid back dude and pretty straight forward with you. you will have to teach yourself the subject and he'll just recap it. I liked it this way. MULTIPLE CHOICE TESTS!!! it doesn't get better than that in a math class!! FINAL WAS A breeze as he reused all old questions! overall he wants us all to succeed.

He is as good as it gets for a math professor. There is a lot of work on your own but that is what you should expect from a college class. He does a good job teaching you the material and making it as simple as possible.

MATH54 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He had a great initial impression with me but over the semester, I lost respect. He took forever to grade tests, reused old exams (with questions that didn't apply to what we were learning), came late every day, and often let us out early bc he had things to do. Who uses SCANTRONS for math? Too lazy to grade our exams and give partial credit.

Stats is pretty tricky, but he makes it really easy to understand. Homework is due on day of exams; there are 3 exams and a final, with quizzes assigned randomly. Most of the work is done on the calculator, but you have to understand the idea behind the calculations. Really nice guy & really funny. Also kinda looks like the lead singer of Bon Iver.

He is a really patient really funny comes to class like no other teacher will. He will make learning math really easy for you if you show up to class everyday. Come to class every day and do your homework you will get a easy A.

He is really funny and really hot! As for class purposes he expects you to know what is going on so if you are lost sometimes the way he talks makes you feel dumb but he pretty much sticks to the book and let's you use the calculator for everything he tries to make it an easy class but it is still tough if you are good at math.

Took precalc over the summer with Prof Baskauskas. He did a good job of making the 6 weeks of all day math quite bearable. Was a fun professor and cared about teaching us. Not many A's given though and he never let out early or missed class :(

Precalculus: A disappointment because he looks and acts as though he is a great guy. However, he is actually quite arrogant and condescending, which very much overshadow his teaching and his communication. I would recommend a more seasoned and mature teacher.

Math2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

What to Expect: 3 exams + final. HW assigned every class out of the book- graded. Lectures from the book and Tests are from the book! Explains topics only once- crystal clear & very detailed- and doesn't have patience to repeat himself. So, listen carefully. Grading Style: No drops for exam scores. In the end curves a lot for B's & C's- NOT FOR A'S

We had a M-F 3 hr/day 6 week class, he spent maybe 20 minutes a day actually lecturing, he does deminstrate a great understanding and his lectures are clear but he only covers a small amount of the text and then makes you look up the rest and do tons of hw to make up for his wanting to leave early to get to his other job.
