    George is really nice and is always ready to help you. He let us redo homework that we missed or got wrong which was really helpful. He's also very approachable. The only thing I didn't like was that he didn't explain the topics, but apparently he's not supposed to. ...Continue reading

    took him for math 70 and I honestly learned more from him than I did in my high school. He didn't lecture much but I know that's part of the curriculum. He made me feel like I can do well if I wanted to work and he's easy to talk to. Never made me feel dumb. Offers extra credit, lets you make up homework and has test corrections. I recommend. ...Continue reading

    She actually makes learning math fun and entertaining. She likes to teach the basics before she goes too in depth which is helpful for those who struggle with math. You get used to her teaching style. Most people taking math 70 already know most of the material from high school. Therefore, the class is mostly review. She goes very slow and it was easy to skip. The final was take home. There are only two other tests. ...Continue reading

    Sam has a very thick accent that was very hard to understand at first. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 1/5
    Very confusing. Not good at explaining things writes things on the board and expects you to figure it out on your own. Has a pretty thick accent. Would not recommend. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 2/5
    He doesn't very much at all, more so just hands out group activities and leaves us alone for 20 minutes. He would get upset if we didn't understand the work, even though he barely taught us. Class felt like a joke, because we basically sat through nothing for 50 minutes. No notes, barely a lecture, and online homework that didn't match group work. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 3/5
    Gina's alright, the class is a remedial course so it's not that hard. Don't buy the textbook, just buy the code from Wileyplus since your homework is weekly on the website. She doesn't give super good notes but she'll help you through the work if you ask for help. You only have to participate 7 times to get the participation credit for her class. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 3/5
    Eh, He's not the worst. He does give everyone an opportunity to get at least a B on every single test with test corrections @ his office hours. No point in showing up to class. . you'll learn absolutely nothing. If you already have a solid background in math, this class is an easy A. But if you really do need help, I don't recommend this professor. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 3/5
    She wasnt rude to us at all. She was a very sweet teacher and was really laid back. the class was extremely easy, even though her teaching was sometimes not too clear. Very willing to work with you, gave me an extension on my test b/c i was stressed. very sweet. but shes moved on :( id recommend her ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 1/5
    He does not know how to explain any of the math problems he assigns his students to do on their own for homework. He is hard to understand b/c of his accent and will feel frustrated if he has to explain a math problem. He will make you feel stupid when you don't understand what he is trying to say and will say, unbelievable. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    Nice, and Very helpful at office hours. cool teacher. explains well in the lecture and he is fair. grades u pretty easily because as long as u try in the test, u get some sort of points even though the asnwer is wrong.

    Seth...is an alright teacher. He's pretty new at the whole teaching thing so I don't blame him for being unclear sometimes. He does try to teach the material. He just doesn't explain it very clearly. He is a Great one on one teacher so make sure you go to his office hours if you need help. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 1/5
    Honestly this retarded stupid of a teacher ruined my school career. DOESN'T POST GRADES EITHER! He doesn't explain anything to you and thinks that you can do the work so he just gives you work out of the book. DON'T EVER TAKE HIM!!! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 1/5
    He just throws you in to the work without giving you any help or examples first, doesn't listen when students ask him (very nicely I might add) to postpone the test because literally NO ONE understood any of the material, and he tells you WAY more than you need to know and makes it a lot harder than it has to be. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    Greatest Math teacher ever, when he teaches you really get it, also he makes class interesting, kind of sarcastic when he makes comments, but there funny, I highly recommend to take his class. He should be more strict especially on attendance. I know I could've gotten a better grade if I went to class more often, but alas, I will accept my B. Great guy, very thorough. ...Continue reading

    Although I do give him high marks for being very willing to help, i feel as though he is too lenient. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 3/5
    easy class. i suck at math but this is one EASY class. gives you more than enough time to do the hw. tests are easy. lectures are kinda pointless and can be confusing. he tries, you can tell. but it just doesnt work. Not much personality, just very technical. Some days he'll be on a roll, others he'll be slow going. But the good stuff is that he gives extensions for the homework if enough people in class ask for one, he gives very easy, one-question, 3 part quizzes and if you feel you get everything, you can leave early if nothing's due. ...Continue reading

    Worst Professor I ever had...He confuses everybody in the class and himself. But it is an easy A+ as long as you have a basic knowledge in math and don't listen to what he says.... It will confuse you! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 3/5
    This teacher helped a lot if you went to him. Sometimes his lectures were a bit confusing or dull but if you went to see him he really went out of his way to help you. It's easy to pass if you try a little, and it's never too late to bring your grade up with this teacher. ...Continue reading

    Glenn Scott is one of the most horrible teachers I have ever had. His way of teaching was very confusing. He wasn't clear when he explained things and I tried to hang on for 3 weeks but I couldn't take it anymore and dropped the class. Stay away from his classes. I warned you. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    The best math teacher i have ever had period. I've never had a teacher who explains the material as much as he does. He's open to questions, he's very easy to understand and the homework is helpful but SO EASY! if you've got him, you're lucky! if not, try to get him. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    Amazing teacher because he does not give up until you understand the material. Unlike other Math 70 professors I took earlier in the semester, he actually explained everything. He is very funny and interactive. He gives 2 quizzes (3 questions each) for every 5 lessons based on the problems already done in class. No test, except for final. Great! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    She was a good teacher, but the class was harder then it appeared to be. She was very understanding about the other students. If you attend all of the classes then there is no way she will fail you. She is an exellent teacher , and know's her material. Plus: Don't fall asleep in class , or she will throw chalk at you =) For example class would be easy, but when it came to the quizes and tests you were like oh sh*%. .the hw was hard too and sometimes not relevant to the quizes. however if u go to her office hours she is EXTREMELY helpful. . plus shes super young and always happy and overal COOL ...Continue reading

If you're like me + can't handle math, TAKE THIS CLASS! ...Continue reading
