Good at explaining and teaching the material but expects you to know everything before you even enter the class. Participation and effort is necessary if you don't want to be shamed. Hard on students but is passionate about teaching and learning.

He wants students to do well and gets disappointed if you don't show up for class. Doing the homework is important as the tests are strictly homework problems but he answers any questions you have.

Showing up to class and paying attention was ESSENTIAL. Doing the homework is a must- all tests and quizzes are directly from homework but they arent graded. He is rude to people who get answers wrong and will make you feel stupid for asking questions, but ask them anyway. Have to take again for a Calc 3 but not looking forward to it.

If you're not willing to study or do any homework at all, don't bother taking this professor. If you just do the homework and pay attention to him, you'll do fine.

Comment:
He is the most rude, inconsiderate, boring professor I have ever experienced. DO NOT TAKE HIM. He will continuously tell you how you should have learned the previous material in "elementary algebra" if you don't remember how to do something. And if you answer something wrong, he basically calls you stupid. Avoid him at all costs. I had to drop him.

The only grades you get in the class are his tests. He gives out three tests plus the final. His grading is sporadic and unreliable and he cares more about your answer than how you got there. If possible switch professors.

I would not recommend taking his class. He can be rude. The test are exactly like the homework so you actually have to do it even though he doesn't grade it. I should have listened to the other reviews for his class.

I struggled his class but still managed to pull a B. Go to class because at the end of the semester he bumps you up 5%. I felt very uncomfortable answering and asking questions because if did not know the exact answer he was looking for he made you feel so dumb. I learned a lot, but am so glad the class is over. Be sure to do the homework

Comment:
Harshest grader I've ever had. He docked me 16 points on a 50 point test because I forgot two brackets in a formula. That 32% because of two brackets. Don't make a mistake at the beginning of a problem, you'll recieve zero points. I felt like he expected every student to make this class their first priority, despite being a non-math major class

I don't know why he has such low ratings. Like he says, if you do all your homework, you'll do fine. The quizzes and tests are straight from the homework. He even gives you extra credit for attending class everyday. I didn't think he was that bad of a professor, just make sure you pay attention, even if his accent makes it hard to understand him.

I have had this professor for both Calc III and Math 240, And I will be having him this coming semseter for Differential Equations. He is a very strict grader, but only because he pulls the quiz and test questions straight from the homework. I dont care for him as a person, but he is an excellent professor. Forces you to actually learn the subject.

Only grades are the tests and final. Do the homework to do well on the tests. Was always very helpful and explained questions and problems you didn't understand clearly. He always gave me partial credit on the test for at least setting up the problems correctly even if i didn't get the right answer. Was always approachable

The class is easy if you pay attention and go to class. He has no attendance policy but will lecture daily about the importance of going. It's annoying, but he is a good teacher and his tests are easy. And I'm bad at math, so that's saying something.

Absolutely horrible teacher. He never wanted to help people, nor did he ever explain things well enough. I was always good at math, however i barely got an average of a C in his class because he taught everything BACKWARDS from what normal people are taught in his classes.IF you miss class, and you're not on your death bed he doesnt care the excuse

Horrible professor, rude and is horrible at explaining the material. Lectures for the first 15 mins of class about attendance and homework. The only grade is the tests! Avoid at all costs.

Do not take this class. There are only three tests, and then a final. You are allowed to use a note card on the final, but it won't help. He makes you feel like an idiot if you ask a question. I hate going to this class.

There's only 3 test and a comprehensive final so there's little room for error. I don't suggest taking him unless you want your GPA to drop.
