"Tough Grader" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Tests are tough"

Van is a good guy but his test were VERY hard for me and he moves VERY fast. If you want a good grade be good at math and do your homework though it''s not for a grade. Your grade is determined by tests and quizzes. Also don''t even THINK about having a cell phone out in his class.

Thinks you should already know everything before you get there. If you ask questions, he wont help you work through them. Makes you use perfect mathematical grammar. Puts you down if you have to ask a question. Too fast pace. Not a good teacher in general.

Awesome teacher and awesome guy. Took him for two math classes and had such a great time. He makes the class so fun and is the best prof I have ever had. He is so fair, wants everyone to succeed, makes you work but if you put the time into you will do great. Very hard to find another prof like him! And the people who don't like him are the lazy one

Professor V is a very intelligent and always willing to help if you need him. Also, a funny guy. My only advice is to try your very best. Go see tutors and ask him questions. People rate him low because he is a tough teacher, but if you work hard it will pay off. Do all the homework given over and over until you understand.

MTH182 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Worst teacher I've had yet. I haven't had a problem in any math class I've taken so far until now. He has to make everything harder than it needs to be, and assumes you know everything about what he's talking about. I'll probably end up withdrawing and taking it over the summer. I'll never take him again for anything.

Very knowledgeable in math, but NOT good at teaching. He does an entire lesson in 15 minutes.He may show you an example of a problem and he doesn't take the time to explain anything.I can almost guarantee over half the class will drop/fail out before the class is even half over. Bottom line: IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND MATH WELL, DON'T TAKE HIS CLASS!

Van is a very fair teacher. Do the homeowrk. Rougly 17 quizzes best 10 count. Best test grade counts twice. Quizzes come from homework.

Professor Van is the man. Do the homework, and you will do well in the class. He is very entertaining, and has tons of cool stories. This is the first time I have ever enjoyed math! He is defiantly one of the best teachers at Penn Tech.

Great teacher. Best I had so far. If you don't take the class seriously, you may struggle. If you ask questions, and do the problems he assigns, you should do well. Go to office hours if you need help. He is very helpful. If you dislike his teaching, take a course at PSU main campus, and it only gets worse. I recommend him highly. Good times.
