Africh is a legend! Class is hard, but you learn a lot. Just hope he comes out of retirement and teaches again. Just do your work, then you're good.

By far and away the best math teacher I have ever had in all my years of education. He is hilarious and extremely smart, he clearly explains concepts that people have trouble with and will make sure that you do good in the class if you seek the help. I have never been a good math person and I can't recommend him enough.

Africh is an amazing math professor, better than any of my high school teachers. He explained procedures well and would make sure everyone would understand. He had students come up to the board and try to solve some problems, and he would go in detail each step on how to solve. I wish I could take one of his classes again, one of my favorite profs!

AFRICH!! Absolute best math Prof. ever! He doesn't rush through material and is extremely clear he is willing to explain a problem 5 times if needed, ask questions he loves questions. Just take him and stop reading the reviews ! He's beyond hilarious too :)

Mr. Africh is a great professor. Very knowledgeable. DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT SKIP CLASS! He hates that. Cool thing about Mr. Africh is he tests your understanding of the material. This isn't an AP class. How can you understand the material? Read the textbook, do extra problems, and go to office hours. His homework projects are fun. Funny guy too.

Mr. Africh is extremely approachable, helpful and funny. Just expect TONS of homework and HARD tests and quizzes. Not a good idea to take him if you are not good at math and already have a full schedule.

Great teacher. Without a doubt the best math professor I have ever had. Clearly explains everything and never skips steps in case some students are still a little behind. You have to show up to class every day or you will fall behind. A few tests and quizzes throughout the semester.

This man is one of the best math professors at COD. Crystal-clear lectures, through explanations, always available, hilarious person to around, simply one of the best. Tests are tough, sure, but if you're apt in mathematics this is the person you want to learn from. Definitely would take again without hesitation

I had him for Calculus 3, and even though I am finished with my math, i'm devastated to hear the upcoming Fall 2015 is supposed to be his last at COD and possibly as a professor. Easily the greatest math professor I have ever had, his attention to detail is impeccable. World Class. Exams are the most difficult to date.

Math but there is a group project. He grades his tests like a hawk, but people like him because he goes at the student's pace in class. Won't give you bs stuff on tests, but very do-able if you study. If you are a person that can give at least 1 hour each class day, then take this class.

He makes the class very difficult and we rushed the last chapters because he didn't plan out his lessons well enough. Do not take if you're just okay at math.

He will make you work hard but if you really struggle with mathematics he's the best teacher to take. He explains every single step and makes everything clear. He's funny and class is never boring!

Definitely one of the harder teachers, and I had Cappetta. He'll make you work hard for an A, but he's hilarious. He shows you where a lot of stuff comes from and proves everything, but doesn't care if you can prove it, tests are BRUTAL though. Also gives take home packets which can take a few hours, but they offset the test grades.

Mr. Africh was extremely clear and very smart. He explains everything thoroughly. The only problem are his tests. The biggest chunk of your grade is also the hardest. I was a 4.0 student and I squeaked out with a B- because his tests were impossibly hard. You need to study for hours and hours for his tests so if you work full time, DONT TAKE!!!!

Had him for Calc II and III. He knows how to teach. Because of him, I feel confident with calculus. He made us understand the concepts behind calculus and how to apply it in everyday life. He has many office hours available to help you if needed. Best teacher for engineering students.

Mr. Africh is the best calculus teacher in the math dept. He's extremely helpful and knows what he's doing. His tests are hard but you have many chances to get points from other assignments. I would highly recommend taking him bc he's also extremely funny.
