Professor Reviews in Mat 132


  • Class rating 4/5
    Lectures are a bit boring but also useful. All the quiz questions come from the suggested problem sets and 17-1820 questions on the exams and final come directly from past exams, which are all posted online. Just work through the problems and you'll be fine ...Continue reading

    SLU student took 132 over summer. I don't understand the bashing. He is one of the best math teachers I have had and made Calc II easier. He does tell lots of weird stories that are sometimes boring he seems to know TONS of random information. ...Continue reading

    I don't know why he gets bashed so much. He does talk about a lot of unrelated stuff but I'm not much of a math person so I find that more interesting than most of the actual course material. It's easy too his grading scale is a joke. ...Continue reading

    probably the worst professor ever- not only was he horrible at teaching, but he was it was impossible to contact him outside of class...do not take any class with him His exams are impossibly difficult, not representative of the homework, and no partial credit is given the first time around. Last exam, avg score was 47%! ...Continue reading

    Rambles a lot during lectures, almost no real information is conveyed. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 2/5
    Kept trying to make a calc class more about physics applications than the pure mathematics of it all You can't understand what he's doing and he just talks to the chalkboard the whole time. He was the only Calc 2 prof available for spring '04, but if there were any others I would have switched to another section. ...Continue reading

    Wickerhauser teaches in a very proof style that takes some time getting used to and the test means are very low (expect 50's). However, all the below reviews were prior to his curve adjustment. Originally the cut off for A- was a solid 90. However, he ended up adjusting it so that a 75 would give you an A-. Most people ended up pretty satisfied. ...Continue reading

    I don't want to be misleading so let me say this straight off the bat: I would rather amputate one of my big toes with a butter knife, then sew it back on using a crude, un-sanitized, rusty sewing needle, all without any form of anesthetic, as opposed to taking this class ever again. horrible,at least for calc 2 ...Continue reading
