Sta2023 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Do not take! Finals are different than any of the MyStat Lab. Very unclear on reviews. Does not respond to emails. Worst professor I have had in 4 years.

I have taken this professor for several classes. His test reviews are way different than the MyMathLab. Not all of the answers are correct. Very unfair midterm and final. I would not recommend.

Very straight forward and direct kinda teacher, he knows his stuff and will not let you shortcut through the class, he is always available if any questions are needed and even does a few hours in the LSC, not a easy class but you learn.

MAC2233 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: C+

Uses MyMathLab for the class, completely independent. I did not use the textbook at all. The website uses great examples to complete each question. You generally get 3 attempts on homework, but one on the quizzes. Midterm and Final are hard. Fair grading, but hard class unless you invest several hours a week on assignments.

MAT 1033 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I received an A. I took him despite bad reviews and regret my decision. He is knowledgable but makes the class feel dumb and as if he is above you. Spends lots of time going over homework and little time for the new material. Would not recommend if you are not good with math.

Talk about boring. I thought math was boring as it was but this instructor made it even more boring. All we did was sit there and watch him do problems from the chapter for an hour and fifteen minutes. Also, he never posts your grades online and your grade relies on your tests and the exam.

I took Applied Calc with him. Uses MyMathLab for everything besides midterm and final. Midterm was very easy (94%) but the final was extremely hard (74%). Midterm and final are totaled 60% of your grade, so you must do good! MyMathLab isn't bad honestly. I would take it again for a higher calc class.

He is the best math professor I have ever had. Do not be fooled by these bad reviews, those who posted them must have slacked off in the course! He offers free tutoring on Wednesdays and his tests are multiple choice. I failed this class with another professor, but with him I did great! DEFF RECOMMEND!

Dr. Rajaram is an excellent instructor when it comes to math. However, he teaches at a certain standard so if you are not already efficient in math you will struggle to pass. I would highly recommend him to anyone who has an interest in a math related major as he will push you. Also very respectful and expects the same.

STA2023 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Professor does not answer back any emails. Makes the midterm and final worth three hundred points so there is no way to pass the class if you get a bad grade. Class is made up from four one hundred point tests and four twenty-five point assignments. Five extra credit posts worth ten points..you do the math. Save yourself an F, take someone else

MAC2233 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Clear teaching method but I had to drop the class after the 2 of 3 exams. (Also a cumulative final). Pulls probs from HW for the exam, sometimes exactly the same ones but throws in others that are not. Usually around 18 questions per test and he'll curve slightly because the averages are often low. I'm retaking next sem with a diff prof.

He is very clear and easy to understand. Always respect him dont text of he will call you out on it. Only grades are tests (mult. choice) and questions are pulled from HW probs (not graded). Tests have some small tricks so be prepared. If you study you can get an A

He is concise & knows the subject. He is strict with attendance. He gives good lectures & homework every class. Doesn't check it. 4 tests, thats it. I would recommend him. Accent is easy to understand.

Best math teacher I've ever had. Don't be intimidated by his long name, he is very understandable and thoroughly teaches the content. He works through example questions step by step and asks if anyone has any questions after every step. Come to class and study a few hours a week and this is an easy A but also you leave with an understanding of math

He is really good professor. All of his tests questions are from the homework. Make sure you do the homework even though he is not going to collect it. I'm planing to take him for the rest of my math class as long as I see his name. Trust me.
