Professor Reviews in Mat 109


  • Class rating 5/5
    Michael is a great professor! I was so afraid of him at the beginning of the semester but he's just weirdly funny and sarcastic. He explains everything clearly and it's pretty easy if you use your note sheet on the daily quizzes and attend the reviews he has before every test. I hate math but he made it my favorite class. Take him!! ...Continue reading

    I love Michael! I went into this semester dreading that my math class was 2 hrs long, and even though it is, Penkava's class usually flew by! There are quizzes every class reviewing what you did in the last class, which are easy, and you even get a note sheet. Exams also are easy if you use your note sheet and use reviews! Highly recommend!! I ACTUALLY look forward to going to class. He makes class fly by with interesting life stories and entertaining teaching styles. Aside from his comedic stories he is a fantastic teacher and truely cares about his students success. Highly recommend him! ...Continue reading

    He wants you to succeed and helps you however he can. Respect him and try to enjoy his class and you will do well. He wants his students to do well, and he will take the time to help you if you want it. Take him if you can ...Continue reading

    She is very off topic. The tests are easy, but you will NOT be prepared for the cumulative exam at all. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 1/5
    She is so scattered and completely confusing. Most of the teaching doesn't happen in the class room. Make sure you look at examples in the book because they are more helpful then lectures. She gets off topics very very easily and makes many mistakes during her examples and gets lost. The book is hard to read but will help out much more than her. ...Continue reading

    He is somewhat funny and random in a weird, non-funny way. Clickers questions are counted for points and homework is turned in via D2L in quizzes with 2 attempts. ...Continue reading

    Math 109 Online. Seriously, just take Lewis' online class. literally almost impossible to get less than an A. Kind of dumb that we have to pay full price for it, since she uses a Pearson teaching website instead of doing any of the teaching, grading, or helping herself. Do you have something better to do during the summer? ...Continue reading

    This is basically a high school math class. Smith may not be the greatest teacher but he doesn't need to be. The material isn't hard or complicated. He is however, not a people person. ...Continue reading

    Prof Otto is awesome! She has a great sense of humor so math class isn't terribly boring. Her note sheets are extremely helpful but I still found her tests slightly difficult. I have always struggled with math but Prof Otto helped me get a better understanding. I would definitely recommend her! She really tries to help you get the best grade possible. ...Continue reading

    Dr. Otto was great, she printed off notes for the class. Gives out sheets of notes with examples. Always willing to help after class. Tests can be hard if you don't prepare for them. SHOW UP TO CLASS!! ...Continue reading

    Tests are not difficult. No word problems on tests, and they are normally pretty basic problems on the major topics, no trickey which i liked. He's an older man, and teaches a little fuzzy at times, but has the best intentions and will sit down with you for hours if need be! ...Continue reading

    He's a nice guy overall. No required book homework which is great for me because the class has been mostly review. There is a few online questions to do each night but they are usually easy and you can ask questions the next day. He grades fairly and there are no surprises. The class is pretty boring, but its math so thats expected. I Recommend him ...Continue reading

    Weekly quizzes, daily practice problems & online graded homework. He grades the tests very hard, even if you get the question right, if you didn't do it like he wanted it then its still wrong. He is the only professor that I don't think is teaching correct material. Horrible prof. Begins class everyday with time for questions. Do the practice problems because he uses them on testsquizzes. Went to him for help once and he told me the class didn't matter, and in 20 years I wouldn't remember anything anyway so I didn't need to stress about the class. ...Continue reading

    Honestly I would never recommend him to anyone, he will not show you how to do problems, he refuses to give you actual examples. ...Continue reading

    Serros is one of my favorite professors and men of all time. He takes a difficult class and makes it easy and fun. Serros is also hilarious sometimes and all around a great person. He is very good at his job, easy to listen too, and teaches insanely well. ...Continue reading
