Best math professor I've had so far, not that that's saying a lot, but he teaches everything in a clear manner and gives fair assignments and tests. Enjoys the material and makes the classes go by much faster than I expected them to.

Overall good prof. He knows his material and seems to enjoy teaching it. Always on time and gives reasonable assignments and midterms. He often goes over time which bothers people in the class who don't want to be there. Don't piss him off and you'll be fine.

Goes fast so pay attention. Makes a lot of mistakes so don't take his solutions as gospel. Incredibly smart but overall a pretty good teacher.

Comment:
He explains things well, but he talks fast so pay attention. He has a habit of throwing in one last example at the end of class at talking at light speed to squeeze it in. Then he's very hard to follow. Also, check his work for mistakes, particularly in examples. He is fairly approachable though and doesn't mind you pointing them out.

Excellent at explaining....write a bit too much though...kinda hard to keep up and pay attention at the same time. NEVER sticks around after class for questions. Kind of intimidating to talk to as well.....not bad over all though.

Weird guy...tough class. He's too smart for his own good and he has been teaching 2513 too long I think. Knows the previous years assignments and solution manual are out there but doesn't care because if you just copy the assignments you will fail. He's prob right on that one.

Comment:
Mr. Gegenberg is a very straight forward professor who does not put up with any clowning around. He expects people to be quite and listen. He can be intimidating at times, but is available for help if you have the guts to go see him. Good teacher, but I believe that 1st and 2ed year calculus does not interest him much anymore.

He would be better for 2nd or 3rd year courses. But you've gotta love his random sayings. "We are going to look at intergals as an african tribe and study them very closely" or "the derivative of the log cabin is the log cabin" or "now, if you put a pig into the sausage machine to get sausages, you cannot put it back through and get a pig again"

Great guy, was very clear on the topics and had useful examples, didn't flood us with examples, just enough. Best math teacher in the department, and I loved the beard and the crazy sweaters and shirts. Okay, so he's a little psycho when the chalk breaks, but who isn't??? He made the course interesting, and he was very fair in the marking.

The textbook helped me more than he did for this class. Final was really tough and since math is 65 percent final it screws you over if you dont do good on it. Its worth far too much.

I found this class extremely difficult. I felt like he would go through things very quickly even if his examples were very thorough.

Weird combination of mellow hippy and freak-out psycho. He definately knows his stuff but has a scary temper. He got mad and threw chalk at someone in my class and once threw his Birkenstock at the wall in a rage.

I was surprised - I had him for 1003 and he scared the crap out of me. This time he seemed pretty easygoing. I've had better profs, but I've had a lot worse. Sometimes seemed to have a bit of difficulty teaching down to this level.
