Professor Reviews in MATH 1310


  • Class rating 4/5
    Very straightforward and easy to understand. if you do all your homework, quizes and show up for poppers and at least make a 70 on all your test you should get a b and be exempt from the final. she drops grades at the end too which is good! If you pay attention to the work and keep up with the assignments you'll be fine. The quizzes have 20 attempts so there's good chances of you getting 100. However if you accidentally miss a test or quiz it can be hard, but not impossible, to make up for it. ...Continue reading

    she's awesome!! took her for finite and currently taking her for business calc! i suck at math and she has made it a breeze!! take her for all your math classes if you can you won't regret it. she's organized, really helpful and is easy to follow. attendance is taken by poppers and part of your grade so show up to get an easy part of your grade. Put it all in your google calendar and set reminders up and you'll be just fine. ...Continue reading

    I had Professor Constante for college algebra and it was an overall pleasant semester. the class is not that hard if you just do the work. it really isnt as crucial as other folk make it out to be I forgot a couple of these lessons from high school and she taught me an easier way than I had learned to figure out the problems. She puts notes up on her website and you have to buy a code to do anything with the class. ...Continue reading

    Honestly math is an easy subject for me and this class was a breeze. If you're not bad at math, this course should be relatively easy (it was a breeze for me). If math's not your thing, she makes herself very available for office hours help. ...Continue reading

    If you are not good with Algebra, you need to take another instructor. She is a nice lady BUT she is VERY FAST when explaining the problems. She does not give enough explanation and with so many students there is no time for individual questions. She skips over some of the steps (assuming you already know them). This is very frustrating!!!!!!!!!!! ...Continue reading

    Best profesor i ever had. He teaches the process step-by-step and willing to answer questions. As long as you pay attention and do the assignments, it's very easy to pass the class. Most of the assignments are on Courseware so he really doesn't do direct grading but if something is wrong you can ask about it. ...Continue reading

    His lectures are helpful, he has poppers for every class. I would definitly take this class again! I intend on taking a course with Sosa again. I would recommend this class to anyone needed a math credit and a good gpa bump! Attendance is not mandatory but there are poppers. I would just suggest getting a group of friends and giving each other your ID numbers and then one person only has to show up and you can do each others poppers. ...Continue reading

    I believe Moses Sosa is the best Mathematics teacher at UH. The reviews for the tests are extremely helpful, and definitely recommend him.

Very nice guy and always in a great mood. ...Continue reading

    He is always in a good mood . You must go to class, with the mandatory poppers. Try not to study the test materials a day or two before the actual test, you'll regret it. He'll let you use your phone as long as your discrete about it. Took for 1310, proffesors don't really teach. How can they, they have over a 1000 students. Be independent, do the homework and quizzes, use all the attempts if u have to. Go to tutoring if u have to. You will pass! ...Continue reading

Overall good guy. ...Continue reading
