Comment:
I wouldn't recommend taking this professor. The class was boring and the concepts were not always explained well. The majority of the class never shows up except for the 2 tests and final. The class wasn't hard but the majority of people who didn't show up never did well on the tests. It's hard to gather up the motivation to go to his class.

Comment:
A nice man but to be honest he is way too old to be teaching and very unhelpful when it comes to teaching material. I ended up having to reteach myself everything and then I did not even do well in the class. He also refuses to give extra credit.

Comment:
Hes super old and just doing the bare minimum of his job but its cool bc all he does is go over whats on the tests he gives. You dont have to attend class or buy the book. His voice is super low since hes 100 y/o and can go over three problems in a span of two hours but if you dont understand something and ask questions he explains well.

Old professor who is difficult to understand. Super nice guy, but when it comes to your education, there are some better options out there despite the school's lacking math department.

Comment:
He is 100% asocial; monotones soliloquoy; disconnects and ignores others-not even aware they're there. very slow, plodding and fails to keeps promises because he talks to himself and forgets what he said. he is painstakingly detailed picky so if you make any error you will lose big points. students are auxiliary-irrelevant. Avoid; picky and petty

professor ducasse is a very nice man but his class is absolutely dreadful. the material isnt made clear and he continuously drones on about things that arent relevant at all. no one in my class ever had any idea what was going on. the material isnt difficult but the way that he teaches it is absolutely awful.

Comment:
Professor Ducasse is a very nice man, but his class is sooooooo boring. He talks to himself the entire class but he goes though the test questions one by one. Your entire grade is based on only 3 test grades. Attendance is not mandatory. You do not need to buy the textbook. No homework. I would probably take him again

Comment:
He is a sweet man, but a pretty awful prof! He counts for participation, but it is not really about your attendance. The only reason he counts for participation is because he is incredibly strict about how people are in his class. If you yawn too loudly, or open a wrapper, he will stop and threaten your participation points.

He is a slow and rather silent professor but the sweetest! He makes small jokes all the time and his test are very easy if you follow his lectures. He asks exactly what he teaches in class. No need to buy textbook.

DO NOT BUY TEXTBOOK ! If you have a hard time with math, I suggest you drop it cause hes a great professor but his teaching style is not clear. Attendance isnt mandatory but he does pass around a sign-in sheet. You could sign it and then leave to be honest.

Comment:
Professor DuCasse was a pretty good professor. 75% of my class didn't even show up because sometimes his lectures can get boring, but if you show up to class it is heavily reflected in your grade. If you go to class, he basically goes through the entire test, question by question. If you have questions, he will help you and cares about his students

I agree he is quite soft spoken but on the other hand he goes over the relevant stuff (questions that will exactly be on the tests,midterm and the final) and if you ever need help he will be more than willing to help out.

He is very soft spoken, he is a nice guy just old and doesn't know how to engage the class. If you ask for help outside of class he is more than willing to help. The text books are optional and there is never homework. If you are willing to write down notes and go to the tutoring center, it is an easy A.

Comment:
He is very slow and sometimes hard to understand unless you sit in the front. But the final is pretty much gone over in class, so if you listen and take notes and DEFINITELY study his study guide, you will pass. He is so kind and cares about everyone even if you sit on your phone the entire time.

No very helpful. Your grade is tests and a final, so it's pretty much a pass/fail class. He does easy problems in class, but will put more complex problems on the test which he never showed how to do. He has good intentions, but unless you're a math genius and can teach yourself you're most likely gonna struggle.

Comment:
He is a terrible professor, he is too old to be teaching & doesn't teach the material correctly. He just does the problems on the board and does not explain what he is doing. All he does is pass around an attendance sheet, you sign your name and he doesn't care if you stay. 1 midterm, 1 final (both 20 multiple choice) no HW. no calculators
