MATH 1112 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He was pretty clear when teaching so I recommend him if you need college algebra. I passed with a C, but if you try just a bit more than i did, you could easily get a B.

I took dr Reisen for number theory it was pretty hard for someone who has never seen proofs but dr Reisen is helpful and always there when you need him although he does go fast if you don't understand something you can always ask him afterwords and he's a good guy real nice person heart of gold

Dr. Riesen is a very excellent teacher. He goes a little fast sometimes but all you have to do is ask him to breath =) He gives great examples and and will always take time out of the class to help you understand the material. Ive taken him twice now and loved it both times.

Calc3315 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Riesen is by far onof the best teachers on campus. He teaches so everyone can understand it, not just the smart kids. Calculus is not the easiest subject to learn, but Dr. Riesen seems to take complex ideas and break them down into pieces, so we can put the pieces together and understand concepts. I definitely reccommend him over another pro

Calc3315 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Great teacher. Super helpful. Really knows the material and makes it interesting. Probably my favorite teacher in college so far. I definitely recommend taking him. He's not super easy, but not extremely hard either. And the quizzes every week help you keep up with the material. Just pay attention and take notes and you should do fine. :)

GREAT! Very helpful; very fast - let him know when he should take a breath if he goes too fast for you, seems like sometimes he just gets carried away teaching. Quiz every week, which is good, it will keep you up to date on the studies. Always teaching barefoot, funny guy...

calc1101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

reisen is a very brilliant man but goes too fast in class for me. I had a very hard time keeping up, being a non-traditional student Calculas was like greek to me and still is. My only comment is he just needs to breath more. i think maybe fewer examples and make sure that the students get them down, quality over quantity maybe. Overall though

Math 1101,1102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Good person, teacher, and very helpful. Only thing is that he gives quizes once every week. There are at least three test in those classes but there are very simple. So in other words, pay attention and you will pass. One more thing. If you need any help, he's always there.
