He's nice and makes lame jokes, gives you half the class to do the exercises which you should probably do because they help a lot but he won't stress out if you start talking. 4 tests 25% each, he explained very well every aspect for the first test so it was super easy but for the other ones he only explained how to do it in a basic way and then pulled out trick questions (one for every thing we learned) for the other tests. It was really unfair because you couldn't prepare yourself for it.

Tells jokes that no one laughs to and wastes a lot of class time doing so. He gives way to many examples without going through how to actually solve the problem and assumes the class knows how to do it. Exams are short, but beware, no calculators. I'll just mention Khan academy is very useful.

He gives a lot of concrete examples, but he doesn't go through theories. And he doesn't care about notations which I think a very important part because it's like your reasoning, but formed into numbe

You do not need to show up for class. Just show up to his review class then do the test, his tests are like his reviews. Easily get 90 if you try.

Does not take attendance, explains well enough, although sometimes too fast for me. Doesn't matter either way, you can easily study on your own and pass his Calculus 1 class. Also tells jokes.

Tries to be cool which is funny. Expects you to understand with one explanation but first 2 tests are easy. Must study hard for other 2 tests, but only becuz the material is hard. In all, ok teacher.

Best teacher I've ever had. I barely ever went to class, never studied and never did homework. I got 75% in both math classes I took with him. He can calculate rediculous numbers in his head

Good teacher. Knows his stuff and calculates a lot without using a calculator. Unfortunetely sometimes doesn't give enough examples. Always ask questions though and can explain anything you don't understand.

I'm not impressed. Com Linear: not clear, few examples, slight mock in his voice when he answers you. You're doing a test practically every second week.
