Comment:
Math is a really difficult subject for me, but I would choose him for any math class! He explains things very well, shows you how to do new things on the calculator that previously some students may not have done, and is VERY well organized! We got a notebook with all the semester's slideshows on it to make it easier to do the work without copying

Robert is an excellent and very nice professor! I do feel as though the class was on the more difficult side, but if you do your homework and study you should be able to make it through. Before covid, his office was open and he was more than willing to help with any questions.

Very organized and caring. There was a power outage during my final and he was super understanding and allowed me to continue. No textbook needed, but you have to buy the MyMathLab acess code. His lectures are helpful and the MyMathLab assignments weren't as bad as I thought they would be. His study guide for the final was identical to the exam.

Prof Hessel is an awesome lecturer and is very clear with the information. When we went online, he offered different ways of learning the material. As long as you use the resources you are given in his class, you'll be fine! This is the first math class I've ever taken where I've ended up with an A and it's all thanks to Prof Hessel!

Professor Hessel is a great teacher, makes math more clear and straightforward. As long as you take notes and do the online quizzes for stats, then the class will be pretty easy. He also gives extra credit, so no worries.

I took Hessel in fall 2019, he was the best professor ever. He cared for his students & was always available to help you with any work. Very approachable & made math easy to understand. He always liked to crack jokes & made the class easy for you. I would recommend 100% to take his class!

Professor Hessel was a very straight forward teacher and I enjoyed him. He creates workbooks for each student to follow along with his lectures and they were extremely helpful. His lectures are a little boring but stats is a boring subject.

I struggled with this class just because Im really bad at math! But the professor was accommodating. I would recommend. I skipped class a handful of times but you can easily access the lectures online and all homework is online. You will need your calculator every day and dont lose your workbook!

He gives you study guides for each exam, and all the tests are very similar to the study guides. There's online homework for every chapter but you have 2 chances at the questions. Attendance isn't graded, but recommended. He's super funny and outgoing in class. He kind of looks like Ross from Friends, which brought me a sense of comfort.

Comment:
By far the best professor at RVC. You will not be disappointed with him as a teacher because he is extremely thorough with his lectures, very patient, and all he asks of you is to participate and ask questions, or he will assume you know it all. He also is unintentionally a funny person. On a scale of 5, I'd rate him a 10.

He explains things pretty well and the tests aren't too bad. You get two tries on all the online homework and as long as you show up to class and take notes you'll do fine. He's pretty chill overall.

Dr. Hessel is the best professor you could ever get for math related work. He goes out of his way to print every student their own workbook to follow along with his lecture slides and makes everything super easy to follow and understand.

An amazing professor, if you are planning to take calculus. He doesn't teach 120 as a college algebra but rather as a preparation or pre-calc class. He is so caring and funny, well-liked amount his students. But be prepared to really work for a good grade.

Tests were easy if you pay attention and did the quizzes. I got the textbook that was recommended, but never opened it. He assigned homework that was in the textbook, but was not graded or looked at. Really nice and helps answer all of your questions.
