Do not take if youre trying to get As. Really not a bad professor, but he sets his A cutoff at 95% even though learning suite will indicate a 93% besides that not bad, but getting a 95% is very hard.

Professor Forcade is super sweet and very accessible outside of class but his lectures are extremely hard to follow. Class isn't mandatory and there are opportunities for extra credit which is nice.

I LOVE Dr. Forcade as a person. I took him for Math 290 over Spring term. HOWEVER, and this may have been a mistake on my part, taking a STEM class during a single sprummer term, it was very difficult course. I also wasn't particularly motivated to care at this time in school. BUT, Forcade is a very caring person and knows math very well. thumbs up

I really love Dr. Forcade. Some people might find his lectures hard to follow, but they were usually really interesting. He tests very fairly. His homework can be difficult, but he is EXTREMELY helpful if you ask him for help via email or in his office. He cares about his students and wants them to do well. Highly recommended.

I've never had a teacher care more than this one. If you are worried about passing, go talk to him. He is so willing to help. He doesn't want to fail you if he can help it and will really work with you. One on one he is WAY easier to understand. Funny guy.

Comment:
He's got a really quiet, mumbling voice that can be hard to follow. Even if you get a question right on a test, he'll take off lots of points if you didn't do it just the right way. Not terribly hard. He often hands out homework problems he doesn't even know how to do, which makes getting help difficult.

Excellent teacher. On the first day his tone of voice may throw you off, but he is a very experienced and clear teacher. He has received distinguished teaching awards and is good at understanding what you don't understand so that he can help you understand. I definitely recommend him for Math 113.

I loved this class! Dr. Forcade is really good at explaining difficult concepts and ideas. He teaches how/why things work, not just how to do them. He has a great sense of humor and always catches students off guard with his jokes. I would definitely recommend Dr Forcade to anyone.

He's very much a spunky old man, full of character and quite a bit of energy for his age. He explains things well and he's very helpful with the homework, but he's not so easy that you don't learn anything. He definitely knows his stuff. I highly recommend him.

Prof. Forcade is quite an odd man. Definitely not your normal 75 year-old. He knows the material well though. he always was willing to help with assignments over email. His tests were pretty easy really. I got high scores on all of them. I would recommend him for sure.

He was okay, but he never went over difficult problems until after we did the homework assignment, and he mumbles. He's got a pretty good sense of humor, though, and he's pretty honest about his grading system.

Professor Forcade is both a good and a bad professor. Let me explain. He knows his stuff, and if he doesn't get sidetracked (it doesn't happen too often) he will teach it to you, and everything will be great. However, he can be frightfully boring. Unless you are planning on getting some sleep, bring some caffeine with you.

Fairly easy, will work the problems if you ask him. Homework daily but necessary. Only two midterms plus final. Grade on final is grade in class (if its high). He knows his stuff but can go on tangents at times. Overall pretty good, really nice and receptive to the students.

Comment:
Dr. Forcade was very flexible, and when the class as a whole was not understanding something, he'd postpone moving on, and go into the misunderstood concepts until we all understood it. He was more concerned with getting us to understand the material than getting through all of it. The assignments are short and pretty easy, and we go over them.

Comment:
Professor Forcade really cared about how well we were doing in his class. He had us go on a field trip to his office, as a hint for us to come during office hours. There is homework, and I felt the tests were harder, but it was a very enjoyable class. Professor Forcade always did something random to wake us up and get us to pay attention.

Dr. Forcade is a great math professor, especially if you really want to understand the concepts in the mathematics. He made things fun by bringing puzzles and rubix cubes to class. He has a fun sense of humor, also, and isn't too harsh on grading.

Intelligent, Witty Instructor. Made class enjoyable. He made himself extremely available, and was always willing to help students understand concepts they were struggling with. Never had the slightest problem understanding him, nor had confusion regarding his expectations for the students.

Forcade is an interesting teacher. Has been teaching many years, and he knows quite a bit. He mumbles a lot so if you want to understand him, sit towards the front. Otherwise you will have trouble with the material. The final is a dept final and it is HARD. Do the homework, COME TO CLASS, make sure he knows you, and you'll do fine.

Prof. Forcade is quirky; he has a sense of humor and garnishes his class with it. calculus is a hard class regardless of who you take it from, but he makes it fun and is very approachable and easy to get help from. I was afraid of math because I hadn't taken any in 6 years but he helped me get over that fear.
