math 34 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A
"Would take again" "Clear grading criteria" "There for you"

I don't understand why there are bad reviews about this teacher. I'm glad I didn't listen to any of you because he turned about to be great. He never collects homework but I suggest do it so you can do well on tests. He's an easy grader and will help if you need it. Do your work and pay attention and you will do great!

"Skip class? You won't pass."

Don't take this professor. He's horrible at explaining & doesn't like answering questions. Almost all the students are failing the class. Choose a better professor. Pretty sad.

For one 120 He's not such a great teacher, he skates through material and hardly ever went back when students were struggling . Recommend taking a different teacher if you are not a fast paced learner

The teacher moves to fast, and expects the students to teach them self. He has a cleaver way of avoiding work. He doesn't assess where his students are at and what they need to pass. He doesn't understand why he is employed and sadly only 6 out of about 40+ students got through to the final. I am not sure if the remanding passed? CAUTION

MATH 342 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This is a hard class made harder by having a poor professor. The tests are set up in a very confusing way. He lectures in a hard to follow way. Terrible.

Got an F in the first exam but my grade picked up to an A on the next test. Mr. Martinez is very patient and teaches at a very high level. If you don't study hard, you will fail

MATH 342 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Very difficult to understand the subject with his teaching style. Fast paced, expects you to understand the material after one example. Seems to talk down to students when they ask questions. He's starting to get nicer as the semester goes on, but I still have to go home and re-teach myself the material when class is over.

The only way to get points is from one of the 3 exams. That is it. So if you aren't able to teach yourself from the text don't expect to pass this class.

MATH 342 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Confusing lecture style. All over the place. Doesn't like questions. He is hard to follow because he jumbles everything around. This is a hard class to begin with but especially with a poor professor "teaching"

This prof has a pretty motivating and engaging teaching style. If you spend enough time studying his class lecture notes and prectice his pretest exercises you will do well. He can be gently rude if you ask stupid questions.

I was very dissapointed in this teachers performance. I found him to be rude and ineffective at this lower level class. He failed me as a teacher. You will learn more from tutors or the math lab than from him. He would not activate the computer portion of the math book that allows you to trac your work.

If you are a working student and are looking for a class that will work with your schedule. He dropped me (without notice or warning) for missing a couple assignments. I had paid almost $200 (the class itself and an online program). Does not understand working students. Also the tests do not reflect the homework at all. Horrible professor.

Great teacher. This guy gets down to business and does not tolerate non-sense from students. You have to be dedicated and serious student to pass his class with flying colors!

Would not recommend for someone who isn't fresh up on their math or isn't mathematically inclined. He expects you to know majority of material as if you had just taken the subject the prior semester. Nice guy, not the best teacher.

MATH 100 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

he is ok as a person, but academically he does not know how to teach. he'll write a problem and when you're halfway done he says he made a mistake and change the entire problem. his work is nothing like the book and online work you're only given a certain amount of time or else he'll count it late or be locked. he can take 20min solving one problem

Math100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

First off, I have always been very good at math, and I usually put away at least 30 hours per week for studying. However, the notes that I copied do not match anything in the book or on the homework. I also received and email from him, saying that I had missed a quiz that was not on any schedule or the syllabus. Avoid him like the plague!

When I think I get it and go home to do the homework. I have no clue at what I am doing. Then when I do get the homework the text is something completely different. Then when you want him to explain you really don't know where to begin for an explination.

If you need any extra help in math do not take this class. He gives homework but does not collect. grade based completely on test. fail test. fail class. No chance for any extra and he does not like answering questions

So if you want to be completely confused, not understand, and basically teaching yourself, this is the professor for you. His explanations are not clear, he doesn't really answer a direct question when asked, and he does short-cuts without explaining how he did it. Basically, avoid taking this class.
