Test problems are made for the student to figure out, that you haven't done before and are honestly too hard and unfair and doesn't cover all material, only the hard topics. His teaching is ok, useless for the most part. Literally have taught myself.

He likes to do problems in class. It's like only having a recitation class... Meaning no lecture... No lecture... And those problems aren't on the tests, quizzes yes, tests no.

Do not take this class if you enjoy receiving good grades. This professor does everything in his power to trip you up while working on a "simple" problem. Tests are absurd compared to the examples covered in class, and the online homework is just as useless. You will be left wondering why you came to class on a daily basis...

Terrible, class is very straightforward at first so you get comfortable, then after the first test he gives you tests with questions you never covered before in class when before everything was. VERY inconsistent and has no respect for students and has an odd complex for blaming students for his mistakes. Otherwise, great guy!

He is a very good teacher. His quizzes are from the book problems and are easy numbers. The online homework is easy as well. Even his tests are easy numbers to work with. He does a very good job at teaching and I loved taking him as a professor. He does have an accent but its not as bad as everyone says. Good teacher. Take him!!!!!

Worst teacher I have had in 4 years at UT. As a fairly smart senior, I can't even believe how badly I struggled through this class. His accent is very hard to understand and does not respond very well to student questions. Never. Ever. take this professor.

He is a worthless teacher who is boring to tears. He unofficially switched our classroom to UHall, which makes it nearly IMPOSSIBLE to hear/pay attention. DO NOT TAKE HIM AS A PROFESSOR. The university changed him to my prof at the last minute. Thanks UT.

Basically just reads the examples from the book and does not explain how or why the book did what it did to solve it. The first test was nothing similar too the homework of quizzes. Everything you would expect one should study was not the right material.

I highly recommend avoiding Schwarz at all costs. The class textbook is more than helpful if you're a self motivated learner, but his quizzes and exams can be complete nightmares. You'll either get a test over material covered by the book and in class, or you won't. It's that simple. It's also a tremendous loss for those of us who enjoy learning.

Great professor. Uses some upper level jargon at the beginning but will clear things up if asked. More than willing to meet outside of class and is very friendly and helpful. The content of the exams and quizzes consists of what he had gone over in class.

I just spent a total of twenty hours in the last week studying for his exam, walked in feeling fully prepared to ace it, and know I failed. He is a horrible professor that is only capable of teaching students who have already learned the subject. The exams and quizzes are much more difficult than what is done in class. DO NOT TAKE HIM FOR CALC I.

He uses computer programming to teach which makes the class very easy. Although he tries to help you when it is not needed and makes things confusing. Thick accent but Hes a funny guy.

Hard professor, but very good. If you go to his office hours, he will help you understand concepts that you might be struggling with in class. 40% is a passing grade, but it doesn't make the class any easier. Weekly quizzes are given. Overall, he's a good instructor if you are willing to put the time in. Accent is not an issue after a week or so.

One of the WORST professors I've ever had...he has a very thick German accent and is fairly difficult to understand. Gives quizzes almost every week which are incredibly hard (I failed the first 3, then I withdrew). Would not recommend him to ANYONE

Horrible, Makes easy things very hard. He is very brilliant , but totally on a different level than students and that makes it hard to understand what hes teaching. Funny guy though, like to joke arround and tries hard to get the class involved. 50% is passing , 60% got me a C.... so that might be worth it to some who have poor math skills like I.
