Math 104 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: WD
"Tests are tough" "Tough Grader" "Skip class? You won't pass."

I took math 104 with him and it was the worst experience ever! He is extremely confusing when he is trying to explain the material. He makes it way more confusing and complicated than it had to be. I ended up withdrawing from the class because he made it so hard and when I re-took it over the summer I ended up with a 100.8 average.

MTH 165 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

HORRIBLE. Went way too fast. Practice test exams did not match actual tests. Don't take the class unless you are able to do "mental gymnastics". Gives 1 or 2 example problems and expects you to already know how to do them. Did all of the bookwork, mymathlab, attended every class, office hours and still got a bad grade. Learned more with tutors!!!!

MR Mahar is a very quirky and fun teacher. He does not realize that he is going TOO FAST and you are better off studying and doing the homework on your own with little to no help from him. i felt like i should have taken this class online instead of try and learn anything in the classroom.

DRY as the Sahara desert. you might as well take an online class because the teacher is no help and has no passion left. Were have all the passionate teachers gone?

mr. mahar is a very nice and funny guy but not a great teacher. i didn't learn from the class i basically taught myself using my math lab. he goes too fast and only uses like one example and doesn't show how he got to the answer. i don't think i'll be taking another class with him..

overall good professor. very clear and easy to learn from. works through every problem with you and makes sure you understand it. if you do the homework almost guaranteed to pass all hw is online and assigns like 15 questions per week and you can keep trying until you get it right shouldnt be anything less than 100on hw would take him again!!!

MTH210 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

I loved prof. Mahar. He had a silly sense of humor and knew how to teach calculus. My only gripes with the class was the Tests. They were very involved and very difficult. If you knew what you were doing, it was a breeze. To compensate, he curved the tests so that your best test is weighted MORE THAN YOUR FINAL, and your worst test 1/3 of the final

Teacher is VERY fast paced. His tests are 8 questions long and contains 14-16 parts per each. If you get the CORRECT answer but do not show HIS WAY, you get it wrong. Teacher talks above the class. Class started with 27 down to 8 as of the final withdrawal date. GOOD LUCK!!!

If you are a better learner on your own Mr. Mahar is the teacher for you. Didnt teach everything in class and went over a topic with one example.

MTH024 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He is NOT dependable! Does NOT keep his appointments with students! Goes at an extremely fast pace-will not slow down- so we can ACTUALLY LEARN THE MATERIAL! Had to learn on my own w/math lab tutors. Does not explain things clearly- Has NO personality! HUGE waste of money and time! Very disappointed! Would DEFINITELY NOT recommend him to anyone!!

This professor is VERY difficult. I had to drop his class. The tests are only 8 questions and they are extremly hard. The practice exams he gives out have nothing to do with the tests. He is very hard to learn from if you struggle in math.

Not very helpful.Doesn't hand out worksheets,all the homework is online.Takes off points for not checking your answer on tests,isn't that his job.The way he explains is different from the book and online.Review sheets don't help,different from tests.You basically have to teach yourself.A big waste of time and money,have to take the class over.

MTH165 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Tests were very hard, review sheets were totally off, never helped. Very harsh grader, took a ton of points off the very small mistakes! Don't take this class if you aren't willing to read the book, because his class notes didn't help, I basically had to teach my self the material..Spent all class telling horrible jokes rather than teaching.

GREAT professor!! He is organized and easy to understand. Tests are very fair. If you do suggested problems and mymath lab, tests are no problem. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!

He goes way too fast and often doesn't explain concepts fully. He expects that you already know most of the material and doesn't have much sympathy for those who aren't sure. I mastered everything on the USELESS review sheet only to see completely different things on the test..which was LONG. I dropped the class.. I was not pleased with him at all.
