Absolutely terrible. Doesn't care about his students at all, I learned everything from attempting to watch YouTube videos. Switch out if you can, I wish I did.

1. did not make sense when lecturing 2. gave the girl who sat next to me a higher grade than me even though we did the same work and got the same answer 3. called me out in class and took away my points for phone usage when I was on my calculator 4. added a curve to all the assignments at the end because no one in the class was passing at the time

Comment:
Along with all of the math department, Professor Al-Halees is one of the worst math professors here. When he assigns homework he hardly goes over the problems the next class period. He doesnt care for his students. If you have him you better run. Furthermore, half the time when were learning a topic he doesnt know what hes writing!

Bring a pillow to this class because you will not understand anything that comes out of his mouth. If you are on your phone, oh boy, he will spend 20 mins insulting you in front of everyone but you will still not understand anything that comes out of his mouth. I learned only one thing in the class that is there were 29 chairs in his class.

He is the worst professor I have had at SVSU. He is hard to understand. If you try to go to him for help, he will make you even more confused and act like you are stupid for not knowing the answer.

WORST Professor. Avoid at all costs. Waste your time, literally. Says you'll have a quiz next class, next class comes and you studied for nothing bc he forgets he even said there was a quiz! Assigns Hw at 8pm the night b4 it's due! Doesnt show all work on board but EXPECTS you to show all work on quizzes/tests. Spend money on a better professor!

Comment:
Hasan is hands down the worst professor I have had at SVSU. Lectures consist of copying word-for-word statements from the book, rude comments, and confusing examples. Most examples are from an outdated version of the book. Hasan is a prime example of why I regret coming to SVSU for a Math degree. Avoid if possible.

This is the worst experience I have ever had with a teacher. This man is not only ridiculously tough on the way he grades the examshe marked several problems wrong that were not in fact wrong -double checked that with other instructors-, and he refuses to admit error on his part. Please save yourself the trouble of having to drop a class

Comment:
Guy is the worst; he springs homework on you the night before it's due and demands it be done for credit, he is extremely unclear on his expectations, he calls out students for using the restroom during lecture (which is a straight hour+ of him belaboring simple points), and he tells us to do certain things but then might hold it against our grade.

Took calculus in high school received a B- . Good Luck Passing if he's your professor lol. Odds are you won't be able to understand him, and the quizzes are completely a hoax.

Very funny, but not a very good teacher. Quizes seem to be rigged, and while this professor is very smart and knows the material, you will most likely not learn anything and fail.

Comment:
This guy is not rude and truly does care if you do good or not. He does make a lot of mistakes during lecture. He does not hear well also, but he does everything you can think of but give you the exact questions on the exams. You will take a lot of quizzes, but only the best 8 count. Plus you get 1 extra credit point for showing up to each lecture.

WORST TEACHER I HAVE HAD HERE. Doesn't understand when you ask him questions. the only way you'll get points backs if you cry. he is very rude and is very tough with grading. Quizzes are nothing like exams. Attendance is extra credit but if you miss class you'll fail.

At first he is hard to understand, but eventually you will get used to it. Unfortunately, he has a very hard time understanding students' questions and often times does not answer them correctly because he didn't understand the question. The tests/quizzes are quite hard. He is not reliable for help outside of class. Attendance extra credit :)

Don't use your phone in class, he WILL catch you if you are. Do the homework because most of the quizzes have questions that come directly out of the homework. Overall, he's an okay teacher. I'm learning from him, but I also do a lot of self-teaching if I want to go in-depth on a topic he barely brushed over in the lecture.

Comment:
Although Hasan is extremely passionate about math, he is often rude to students, and his thick accent can make it difficult to learn effectively. Furthermore, he is an EXTREMELY tough grader, often docking points for nit-picky details. One positive, however, is that he offers a good deal of extra credit, given you show up to class every session.

This prof is the WORST I've ever had. final exam was NOTHING like the review sheet! half the time he doesn't even write notes on the board, instead he has worked out problems on a sheet of paper that he just shows under the projector but its impossible to copy down in your notes because he goes over them so fast. tough grader, no partial credit.

Comment:
Hasan is the worst math professor Ive ever had. The material in the course wasnt horribly difficult, but if it had been it would have been difficult to pass. He grades tests very hard and if you dont do it exactly how he wants it, expect several points taken off. Lectures were either very slow (barely covering a section in a day) or too fast.
