Comment:
THE WORST MATH PROFESSOR I HAVE EVER HAD. gives 1 or 2 easy examples on each concept he tries to explain but then expects you to be able to solve hard ones afterwards. he has this annoying monotone that will drive you insane in 20 mins and won't be able to focus anymore. rarely asks students if they have any question after explaining a concept

Comment:
Lectures were mostly useless and focused on the proof of theories which is not important to this course. He was a very nice person though. Studied with the book and youtube. Barely passed both midterms but the final was exactly like the practice final and so I ended up with an A+.

Comment:
People cry too much about this dude in calc 3. He basically dropped the first midterm, the second one and then gave an exam that was ESSENTIALLY the practice exam. To add, his midterms were basically the practice midterms too. There wasn't anything low blow and there wasn't anything you haven't seen before.

Comment:
He takes boredom to a whole new level with his lectures. His notes are not the greatest. If he ever post a sample midterm, study everything that is not on it! Also, he assigns textbook problems but never bothers to post the solutions or explain any of it. If you get stuck, good luck. Buy the textbook or you will fail.

His lectures are so theory based and dry. Not many examples. If I had to do it again I would take it some other prof

His little jokes in class were funny and entertaining. He is a really nice prof who is there if you have questions, and he explains everything fairly clearly. The midterm and final were fair!

He's goes into TOO much unecessary details. I had to either Youtube everything or use my highschool knowledge to understand anything. He was of no help! Not recommended!

Comment:
Prof. Jason Levy was probably one of my favorite professors this term. Although I did not enjoy the class (I struggle with calculus) he was very clear in his lectures; he addressed topics and concepts thoroughly. He wrote the notes on the board, so missing information was not an issue. I would definitely recommend taking one of his courses.

Fantastic professor. Had him for both 1st year math courses. Always willing to help. All midterms and finals are very fair and reflect the material on the assignments. A really nice guy, his little jokes and examples in class keep things interesting. Highly recommend taking his courses!

Dr. Levy is an amazing prof! His notes are clear and he explains really well. If you do well on the assignments you'll do well on the midterms and exams. I did better in this class than in MAT1330 thanks to Levy!

I don't understand all the bad comments below. He doesn't make the exams. It is the department that decides what is on. He explains things well and is very helpful. Take him!!!!
