Comment:
He is very unorganized but he focuses on the grammar and making sure you understand how to use each word and conjugation properly. You do get graded on your attendance but if you still turn in your work and show an understanding of the material he will cut you some slack. He gives you until the end of the semester to make up any written or online.

Comment:
Professor Bellamy is not a good professor at all. His grading system consists of a homework grade and a test grade, and whichever is lower is your average. 2 of the tests are kind of easy, but one is very hard and it will ruin your average. He is also not good at explaining anything.

Comment:
Professor Bellamy is not as bad as he seems the first week of class. He doesn't have a Sakai or Canvas page so you must keep track of your grades yourself, but he is a great professor. Homework is hard, but you do not have to complete all of them to get an A. Exams are the easiest part of the class, which is a nice change of pace for a math class.

Comment:
This class is really dumb and easy. The grading system seems hard but he is very generous with points. Half the class didn't take the final because he said it couldn't hurt your grade and we already had A's.

Comment:
At first, Bellamy seems awful. Discrete is a pretty tough subject and he is unorganized as can be. He writes out long boring proofs that you can pretty much space out and ignore a lot of the time. However, even though his grading scales seem super weird, if you put in a decent amount of effort in it is actually fairly easy to get an A.

Comment:
His lectures are so frustrating: he just stands at the board and rambles on without actually checking if you understand it or not. He gives a normal amount of homework which are pretty hard, but the test questions are always easier than the homework. You have to put in a lot of individual effort in order to do well.

150 points is an A and you get points for asking questions, going to class, and doing proofs. If you put the work in you'll get an A.

Comment:
He uses a point-based grading system for all of his classes, so if you put the work in early, you don't have to take the final or show up for the last few weeks of class. Get up to the board to do some proofs as soon as possible.

The class is not tough like people talked about, but this professor is not good one to take. In the class, he just follow his thoughts to talk in spite of whether students can follow or not. handwriting is confusing.

Comment:
I took him when i had no other options. He's the easiest of the professors, just the class material is somewhat confusing. His grading system is weird but makes it easy. His Exams are easier than homeworks by far, and you can study with friends for the homework. Would recommend him.

Comment:
I think Bellamy is great. You don't have a textbook in this class. I love the way he grades his students. Basically if you work hard enough you will get an A in the class, and it doesn't matter how you do on exams. He's a nice guy, terrible with names. Still doesn't know mine. Taking him again next semester.

Comment:
I'm taking this class now, and it's most likely the most difficult class I have ever taken. Don't expect to learn too much from the lectures as the notation can be quite confusing. If you don't understand one little detail, it's unlikely you'll be able to fully comprehend the proof or theorem he's writing on the board. READ the text and do the HW.

Bellamy is one of the worst professors I've ever had. He really doesnt care if you understand the material or if you pass the class. He tells you to ask questions but then makes you feel stupid for asking that question. Seriously, dont take him unless you want to fail

He isn't always the most clear and doesn't necessarily get up to teach this course. He makes you learn proofs by presenting them. Its pretty easy to rack up points and he has a unique grading scale that pretty much gaurentees you to pass if you come to class

You should avoid Bellamy..Not a good professor at all. Tests are very hard, and he doesn't care about his students' grades at all. AVOID

he's not exactly a good professor. If you have to take him, don't sweat it but I wouldn't choose to have him. Nobody really knows what he's talking about, but he usually gives an overall feeling of what the exams look like. Grade is based on the lower of your test grade and hw grade, so it's important that you do your hw. Not impossible to get A/B

Easy class if you've already taken calculus. If you haven't, you're going to have to study a lot. He teaches through sample problems, then assigns very similar ones for homework. Tests are pretty easy, he gives 5 questions on each test where each problem is worth 25 points but the test is graded out of 100 points. Overall, easy class.

The teacher is nice. Grading system is great. It is easy to get a good grade if you work hard. Calculus teacher can not teach you every single algebra. This teacher can give students a good start. You need to work on them after class. He does not care about the antecedence and texting during class. Just a little homework will be provided.

He is a very good professor. I can get a pretty good grade on his exam. He just give a little homework a week and no on-line homework.
