Comment:
Dr. Leonhardi gives hard homework, but if you are in this class you are a math related major and I hope you would enjoy some of the challenge. When you begin to struggle, Dr. L is very open to help. Lectures come from the book, but the book is pretty straightforward. I think he is better and more helpful than other reviews suggest.

Professor Leonhardi is a nice guy. He's pretty nice and tries to get to know you a little. However, his lectures and lessons are awful. I never learn anything in his class and struggle to teach myself. The textbook he chooses is even worse, which makes the class more challenging.

Comment:
This class is impossible. You can spend hours writing a proof and think it's perfect and get 5/12 because he is very picky about how exactly you write it. The homework takes hours to complete with little to no help. The quizzes really affect your grade and are basically texts. DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS IF YOU CAN AVOID IT.

Comment:
Leonhardi is nice and easy to talk to, but his lectures are boring and sometimes don't follow a clear path. There are in class exercises that are graded, so going to class is a good idea to get easy points. Might not be the best professor for someone taking their first calc class but seems to be better than other options at Winona.

Comment:
Don't get me wrong, super super nice guy. Has a good heart but his way of teaching is horrible. His lecture notes were hand written definitions and problems on a loose leaf piece of paper before class and he would just read off of his notes word for word. That was lecture. So have fun!

Will have to purchase an online book, all the homework is on there. There is a decent amount of homework. If you do the homework you will learn the material. Lectures are alright. He has practice exams that are almost exactly like the exams. Do the homework and practice exams you will be good.

Something comparable to his teaching would be a dumpster fire. I already don't know the material yet he'll cram useless math history lessons down my throat that have nothing to do with the current topic. AVOID, AVOID, AVOID.

Comment:
Does the least amount of teaching in class that you can think of. Expects you to teach yourself outside the class and do the examples with a partner in class. At the very end of class he'll breeze over the answers to the examples. In other words, avoid this professor at all costs.

Comment:
Professor Leonhardi is a solid teacher. Lectures can be difficult if you don't put time in outside of class. He uses an online website to give homework usually 2-3 assignments per week that take at least an hour each. The homework is often more complex and deeper than the tests. Even though calculus is a hard class he gives you ample room to suceed

It is not a good class at all. He is a smart guy, and he think everyone is smart as him. Therefore if you are not smart enough, just do not take this class, because this class is not fun, and it is really hard for everyone to even finish it.

Comment:
He's generally a nice Professor but he is very confusing during lectures. He gets lost in his own words and starts solving examples which takes up the whole class period. He has high expectation from his students thus you have to keep up with him to get a good grade. He gives extra credit so that helps a lot.

The blackboard is solid text. He's confused by his own notes. He does examples not related to the homework.

Nice and funny. I really liked his teaching methods. Tests could be hard sometimes, but the homework he assigned helped a lot with learning it. If you don't understand a topic, he usually has all the "Watch It" and "Master It" on webassign to help you. Overall, great experience with class. :)

I'm a math major and have always understood and love math but this class challenged me way too much. Leonhardi explains things as if everyone in the class has a PhD and is a super genius. AVOID HIM!

Dr.Leonhardi can be a picky grader even on homework. Webassign wasnt bad because the problems have solutions with them. Tests were very basic and you can use notes. Just make sure the take home work is in prestige condition and effort otherwise you'll lose easy points. I thought he taught pretty well, I just wished there were more application probs

Math 210 is a heavy proof class and is a lot of work. The class is hard but if you are going to take it I would recommend taking it with him. Do the homework because it is worth about a third of the grade.

He is really nice and has good intentions, but he really isn't that good at teaching. He has a lot of HW (which helps with points), but you basically have to be smarter than WebAssign on many questions, since he wastes time writing theorems out word for word instead of showing you how to actually do problems. He isn't the best, but you'll survive.

Comment:
Leonhardi was a decent professor. In the beginning of the semester, he wasnt very clear, but as time moved on, he got better. One thing I didnt like was that about 95% of the homework was given on WebAssign, an online program, and some of the questions/content wasnt covered in class. However, he was more than willing to help you during office hrs
