Comment:
Calc II is a very hard class, but Dr. Brady gives 110% in trying to make sure everyone understands the concepts. He really pushes students to explore math - to not just rely on a calculator for everything. Each homework assignment was 2 extra credit points. The homework does take a long time to complete though. I wish I could have him for Calc III.

Probably my favorite professor ever. Dr. Brady is hilarious and has a wealth of great personal stories. He constantly encouraged us to focus on learning as much as we could, and he explains everything thoroughly. A gifted teacher and a joy to learn from! His class is very challenging, but if you're willing to work hard, it's worth it.

Highly recommended! Dr. Brady is amazing! He really cares about the students and is passionate about math. Cares more about students' grades than they do, but emphasizes knowledge and understanding over grades. His lectures are really interesting, and he gives helpful feedback on tests! He gives generous partial credit for work and offers retakes.

He puts a lot of effort into making sure his students understand math. He really stresses knowledge over getting an A. Because of COVID, the tests were take home, open anything but no calculator. He allows retakes on every test. You can get 2 ec points for each week you come to class. Homework isn't for a grade, but doing it really helps you learn.

Comment:
This is one of the better instructors I have had so far at WSU. His tests are difficult, and he does expect you to learn most of the material from the book. He will help you during office hours, but don't just rely on the lectures. The only bad point about him is how we spent the first month or two on chapters 1&2, then rushed in the end.

I am an alum. I had Dr. Brady for Calc 1, Calc 2 and Honors Calc 3 (he let me in the class even though my grades didnt reflect the honor) back in the late 1980s. I have forgotten the names of 95% of the teachers I had. But I will never forget Stephen Brady. He is a gem. WSU is lucky to have him.

If you want easy math classes, Dr. Brady's might now be for you. If you're wanting to learn and better yourself as a student and person, take Dr. Brady's classes. He's the kind of guy I go and see now and I don't even have class with him. He's the kind of guy that will give you his phone number if you need help with a problem at 1am. 10/10recommend

Very passionate about math but not the best when managing time. Spent half the semester on chapter 1 and 2. Be ready to teach yourself from the book. Took 6 tests in the last week bc we were so behind. Go over each chapter and make sure to know how to do most type of problems.

Dr. Brady is a really nice person and will work with you. The problem is that you must essentially learn all the material in class by yourself. He tends to procrastinate on tests until the very end of the semester and it is hard to do well when you have 4 tests in 2 weeks.

Dr. Brady is a great professor! I took him for Honors Calculus 1, 2, & 3. Also Honors Diff-Eq. He always wants his students to understand the material and pass the class. He will stay up very late with students just so they can either take more tests or ask him questions. I would recommend Dr. Brady to anyone needing to take Calculus or Diff-Eq!

Dr. Brady is a brilliant man, no doubt about it. He understands his content and is passionate about it. Although, sometimes he just has trouble conveying it to students. Although he may have trouble, he makes up for it in his effort to help students. There have been many nights where I've stayed until midnight or later with him helping me!

Dr. Brady is brilliant. If you have questions you've got to ask him, he won't know unless you speak up. He is dedicated to his students and will stay very late on campus to provide help and test retakes. His lectures can be long but if he notices he's losing the crowd he'll draw you back in with a joke or a story from his super interesting life!

Dr. Brady is very passionate about math. I took him for Calc II as my first math course at WSU. I was a little overwhelmed with the work load to begin with, but he told the class that he puts more on webassign than he would expect you do. Do enough for you to understand and get at least a 70 on his tests, and he will like you.

Dr. Brady's classes aren't easy. But he's very helpful and he really wants you to learn the material. He's not trying to fail you. He's not trying to get by and collect his paycheck and be done with the class. He will LITERALLY stay on campus till 1 AM and help students with math. He really wants you to understand and learn the subject.

Dr. Brady really knows what he is talking about, there's a reason he is the head of the math department here at WSU. However, it sometimes seems that he forgets that his students have not all been researching mathetmatics for +50 years like he has which can make the class very difficult. He also likes epsilon-delta proofs and theory.. Also TANGENTS

Comment:
Honors Calc 3, pretty tough overall. He definitely takes a lot of time to go over everything in depth, plus a lot more. His own notes were very theory oriented, probably at the graduate level. Tests were hard, but 80% got you an A. Would recommend if you really love Math.

Dr. Brady is an amazing teacher. THEY PROCRASTINATE! Even I, of all people procrastinates on his tests. :( He is willing to help you no matter what. Believe me. He offers you chances to retake tests, but it is always best to pass it the first time. Don't ever procrastinate! Take tests early and seek help immediately. Brady is there!
