Math124 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Parsons is a great professor! I HATE math but because of his help I was able to pass this class with an A! Class can get a bit long and a little confusing, but he is ALWAYS willing to meet outside of class (which I recommend) and he helps A LOT in a 1:1 situation! He's very kind, very helpful, and my favorite teacher I've ever had! TAKE HIM!!!!

Parsons is a horrible teacher. If you show any sort of creativity and do math a different way than him, it doesn't matter if you get the correct answer, he'll mark you wrong. Best thing I can say about him is he's so slow at teaching that you'll have no problem following him. Don't take a class from Parsons.

I decided to take a chance and take his 130 class.I dont regret it.He's got an extremely dry sense of sarcastic humor,which makes things entertaining. He commits a ton of time to office hours,it was essential for me to attend. If you get a question wrong on a quiz and you think it was correct,go talk to him,he is not totally unreasonable.

Dr. Parsons is a great man, but seems to have been teaching the material for so long that it becomes hard to explain. He will take a full class day going over one problem and his final was nothing like his other tests, and it landed me a C in the class when I had a B before. If you can, take this class from a different professor.

I have NEVER been so frustrated with a professor/class!!! I studied very hard and did the problems for the homework (which is not graded)... You CAN'T SHOW your arithmetic or else you don't get credit... he is just so picky in the way he grades and it was so hard to follow him at times as well as his handwriting I couldn't even read on the board.

He doesn't explain anything. When you go in for help he just hands you a paper and tells you to do the problem and there is usually others asking for help at the same time. Don't read the book, he doesn't even follow it.

Math124 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Parsons is available during his office hours and if you go he is very helpful and really does care about your math retention. He gives you the option on how to distribute you final grade. That's awesome! I was having a very hard time at first but by going to his office hours and asking questions I passed. This class is what YOU make of it.

Terrible teacher. I don't think he cares as much as he should about students. He has open office hours after class, but the few times I attended I got nothing from them. He's very particular in how the answers are written. And a good portion of your grade will be based on a written paper and presentation, which he grades as poorly as he teaches.
