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.

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

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.

Very difficult, he picks the hard problems for his tests. He barely gives partial credit. Would not take again and would not recommend.

Very technical... Takes the long way to solving problems.. If you like classes that way, go for it. otherwise, do some more shopping

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.

Despite his difficult and long name, he is actually speaks very clear english. Although I passed his class with a C, if it were anyone else, I would have failed. He is very clear and caring. He will not move on until you understand what he is teaching. His test problems are straight from homework and final are the same Qs from all the tests.

Horrible teacher, he's tests are very difficult. Worst math teacher at SPC. He cant explain problems good at all, but he thinks he does. Timing is horrible, He will end up doing half of the next chapter before taking the test on the previous. and he does that every chapter! SAVE YOURSELF AND TAKE WOODRUFF!!!

Professor Rajarama is good. He will give you all formulas and the problems necessary to pass this class. Tests are based in the homework problems no more. If you do all your homework, you will be fine. The final test is based the same problems that he gave on the tests during the semester, so make sure to resolve those problems.

Dr. R is a great teacher. He is old fashioned in the sense that he does everything by hand rather than a calculator, but gives you a formula sheet. He is strict on attendance & gives homework that isn't graded. 4 tests, drops lowest score for final. He is patient but expects you to pay attention also. I think he is fair, but you have to study!
