MAT138 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

David Kellar is a cool teacher who cares about his students success. I would give him an A+ in every area but 2. 1) he regularly uses 4 resources for studying which is hard to juggle. 2) The study guides are helpful but not exactly like the test like he says they are. But still a teacher and class that I Recommend.

MAT210 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

David is good at describing what's going on and giving a thorough explanation of the material. He's pretty good. Kind of a tough grader though... no mercy for a lost negative or unclosed parenthesis.

ColAlWlim Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Great instructor. Always helps outside of class. He wants and sets his students up to succeed if you put forth the effort. The class can be fast paced. He expects you to show up and do your part outside of class. I beleive the previous disparaging comments are from people that werent prepared for college level algebra. I cant recommend him enough.

Very tough when it comes to grading. Good guy but class is ridiculous. I am also good at math that's the sad part.

MAT138 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dave is a nice guy but expects you to figure some things out on your own. Only a selected amount of homework problems, reading assignments, ect are graded so if you get one problem wrong and it's one out of three that were selected, you get a bad grade one the assignment.

MAT152 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Keller is willing to look at your work not just the answer and will give partial or full credit if the answer is wrong b/c of something stupid like you multiplied wrong for tests and homework. He is tough but fair. He will show you how to do the work but expects you to practice at home on your own. good teacher. worth taking his class i have 2x's

Calc1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He is the worst math teacher ive ever had. Doesnt cover much in class because he wants you to teach yourself from the book. He grades very harsh on an AP calculus scale with each problem being out of 3 points so if you mess up a sign your at 66% on that problem much less make a real mistake. makes you feel stupid if you ask for help at office hours

MAT138 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Unclean, not willing to help much. Review days are pointless b/c he doesn't answer questions or go over anything. One of the worst instructors I have ever had.

MAT138 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

One of the worst math instructors I have ever had. If you don't grasp math easily this is not the teacher you want. Only answers about half of your question and skips steps when explaining problems. Goes way too fast and is not willing to work with students much outside office hours. If you have to take him get a tutor right away. You will need it.
