I love this class!! I really enjoyed Math when I took Professor Dedinsky's class. If you're interested in Math, you should definitely take his class. If you do extra homework that relate to his theorems, you'll be able to solve ALL the problems quickly. You'll learn from him a lot of intelligent shortcuts too. Awesome teacher!!! :)

Took him for math2,3A,3B and got all A's. No book. He gives the problems & solutions and marks them as test questions. The homework is to review the test questions. He marks 50+ q's but picks ~10 for exams. If you take time to understand and learn the material then there is very little need to memorize. I enjoyed his class and loved his approach.

This is a challenging class. However, if you keep reviewing your notes after class and understand how to do all problems that he marked for "test," then you'll do well. I love this class and the way Dr. Dedinsky taught us. After taking his class, I find math interesting and would love to learn further in this subject.

He doesn't give you any "homework". During class. he will present the questions and do them step by step. If you put in time to study those questions and understand the theorems, you don't need to memorize anything for his test. He's very knowledgeable and I enjoyed every secs of his lecture. It is a challenging class nonetheless.

His approach is very different compared to most math teachers I had. He gives out a FAT load of questions prior to the test, around 60-70 and you only see about 14 of them in your final, so you end up wasting a lot of time studying, if you wanna do good in the final then study only the last 25 questions. I failed his final but I passed the class

Not the best teacher if you want to learn. He will only make you memorize proofs. Most of the time he doesnt even know what he is doing. He makes many mistakes while he is doing problems. I took math 3b with him and i regret it. Since I am take 4a now and I'm having a hard time.

He expects everyone to memorize at least 60-70 problems for the test. All proofs. Such a useless class. He tells you ahead of what's going to be on the test. But Chances are that you will do poorly in your next level of math. Take another professor if you want to learn. If you have the ability to memorize math problem and an easy A class, take him!

He wants his students to succeed. You will leave the course as a better student. The class is straight forward and easy. He does problems in class and the exact same problems he does in class are the problems that are going to be on the test. If you spend sometime reviewing your notes every week you should get an A. He is a very lenient grader.

He was okay. Really obsessed with proofs. His final however was so hard that everyone did poorly and he curbed it. I got a B even with the final being so bad.

He is very helpful. I learned from him a lot even though many students said he is not teaching. I don't agree. If you study, you absolutely learn.

He is ok. I got Bs on both of his midterms. He is obsessed with proofs. His exams are not too hard. He pulled one exam on a curve. Not a bad professor.

His lecture is fast, so you need to copy what he writes fast and w/o mistakes. His exams are from the note, so there is no curve ball in exams. But u need to memorize 45-60 problems for 10-12 exam q.s. If u are good at memorizing take his class, if not consider other professor. He is very helpful and patiently will answer everything.

Very reasonable professor. If you just concentrate and study seriously, you should be able to ace his class. He seems to be very obsessed with proofs though!

i never made a rating on rmp however u guys need to know this is hands down the best class to take if you need calculus. i didnt know any algebra (didnt know how to even factor) and i have one of the highest grades, he believes ur grade is reflected by the amount of work you put into the class. you have to put ALOT, ALOT of work but youll get an A.

Dedinsky is a great professor but he tends to skip steps a lot, which makes it hard to follow at times. His exams are EXACTLY similar to homework problems that he goes over in class. Sounds easy, but def. put in work. His lectures are broken into sections; this was how I studied and I thought it really helped me learn patterns and concepts easier.

Dedinsky lectures fast and hard to follow, especially the messy steps of how to solve a problem. When you ask him a question, he will giggle and be kind of rude. In addition, he does not respond to email. His tests are more like homework-based and follow mostly on theorem proofs. Good luck!
