Comment:
Terrible. Too focused on cracking insulting jokes than teaching. His notes are horrible, you dont fill up a word document in 12 font, line after line after line and expect them to be good math notes. Pop quizzes just to make sure your grades dont get too high. And all he does is complain about the text book we use and how its bad. waste of my money

Comment:
He wasn't very clear in class, and he focused more on algebra than calculus, he would go on side topics occasionally, and would go on and on about his accident. His exams are not that hard, but he's the only professor that will assign you maple labs for calc I

easily the worst teacher i have ever had. He doesnt know how to teach. He randomly starts speaking different languages. I did not learn one thing in his class, i had to teach myself everything. Do not take any of his classes!!!

Comment:
He is terrible, he sees colors that arent there. Tries to be funny instead of explaining the topic. Most of the time I feel more confused and know less about the topic after attending the class than when I walked in. Generally a out of touch teacher. will often make fun of other cultures. DO NOT TAKE!

He is a smart person but maybe out of touch with how it is to learn for the first time. This is why people have suhc a hard time but we are in college this should have been expected.

Comment:
Often disorganized and his notes are atrocious in that they're incomprehensible. Adds some humor into his lectures and is willing to clarify any questions that might be asked. Also, he is not at all prompt in e-mailing homework assignments and sometimes sends them the night before they should be done.

Gregor will do everything to help you succeed in this class. He is always willing to help during his office hours as well. He assigns very little homework, and spends more time explaining in the classroom instead of you having to learn it on your own outside. I would recommend that you take this professor, eh!

He's gotten on my nerves. The class has a project due in 3 hours and NO ONE knows how to do it. Not because it's hard, but because he does NOT return emails and he didn't give us any kind of outline or grade sheet. Maybe he should worry less about trying to satirize the English language and MORE time actually teaching. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

Comment:
Makes everything harder than it needs to be. Uses odd notations for no apparent reason other than to be odd. Is apparently teaching from a different text which means if you don't understand lecture you have to read the text to figure out what's going on and then use the notes to translate between his presentation and the text for the test.

Comment:
Definitely one of the best teachers i've had. Teaches you through proofs to explain WHY the stuff works so you don't just regurgitate problems back on the tests without knowing WHY they work. Keeps class interesting with some pretty funny jokes and makes you want to pay attention rather than be forced to, A+.

Comment:
He is awesome. He makes a lot of jokes. He actually made me laugh. If you need help, he's generally very helpful. He explains why we do everything in Calculus...a lot of proofs, none of which we need to memorize. He really helped me understand Calc. I'd certainly take his class again!

If you want a good grade and don't care about retaining what you learn in this class, choose him. However, if you want to understand what's going on and really know it and remember it, do not, I repeat, do not take any courses with him. If you are a math or physics major and you need this stuff, he is not the person to take.

Comment:
He's definitely the eccentric one, but he's easy enough to understand. He gives you notes in roman num. format and plenty of Ex.'s. He grades only through tests, pop quizzes, and the occasisonal MAPLE assignment. The only problem is that he uses different symbols than all other teachers. This can be confusing. 230, he's okay. 251, not.

Comment:
Well, I've had him for three classes, and soon a fourth. He gives simple pop-quizes; as long as you are going in the right direction on a quiz, you get 10/15. He doesn't check HW. He also loves MAPLE, so know some or get help from him. He tells MANY jokes, which helps it seem less boring. He especially loves making fun of Canada and English.
