Homework from the book is not graded but i recommend you do it. ASK QUESTIONS! He is very helpful and patient if you ask. Keep an eye out for his minor math errors. (Keeps you on your toes.) Don't give up because the end curve will probably save you. He wants you to pass. Get familiar with maple, he uses it a lot.

I went with the flow and got nearly 80%. A kind and helpful professor. He curves. Seemed very clear to me that Prof Treiman had only one objective and that was to get us to be really good at math.

No wonder WMU orientation stressed on asking a lot of questions. Because some professors, like Treiman, assume you know the material by heart if you don't ask questions. He makes you feel stupid when you ask questions. Note that the average of the class was around 60%, and that was even after a massive curve.

This is a hard class, but Treiman was very thorough when explaining the topic and used lots of examples in class. He really wanted students to learn and apply math skills to real world problems. I went to his office hours several times, and each time he was very nice, patient and helpful. I came to every class and learned so much from this course.

Avoid taking classes with this guy. He gives you homework practice problems that he doesn't grade and expects you to know how to do them without having the answers to them. He also tries to make topics more difficult than they really are. Not to mention he has a super high ego. I mean he knows the material well, but is really bad at teaching it.

Dr. Treiman is a great teacher and definitely knows his subject. He is a very nice guy and is very helpful both in and outside of class. I thought his quizes, tests and final were very fair. Engineering calculus is a hard subject, but put in the effort and you are to do well.

Jay Treiman is easily one of the worst people I have ever met. He will laugh at you if you answer wrong in class. His tests are brutal. He never explains why things work and in general is a terrible teacher. I can only assume he has no friends because he is such a rude and mean person. If you need to take a class he teaches, take any one BUT him.

There is a major problem with Jay Treiman. He will kill your grade if you do not do the problems exactly the way he wants. Even if he skips the step while doing the problem on the board, he will mark you down for it. One good thing is the amount of partial credit he gives. I got two problems completely correct all semester and managed a B-.

Had JT last year for 1710, which is engineering Calculus(II). He is one tough grader but apart from that I would not fault him for anything.

Uses correct mathematical terminology even for simple concepts, so his students develop good habits and don't fall into traps in logic. Only gives full marks if you get everything correct - rightly penalizes you for what you might think are small, notational inexactitudes. Will not suffer a fool gladly - rudeness will be dealt with firmly. SUPERB!
