Instead of forcing you to memorize tables and textbooks, he teaches you the formula and how to solve it. I got A's in all my exams because there literally didn't exist a problem i couldn't match to a formula. no book. all note taking, lets you use notes during exams and final and ANY TECHNOLOGY YOU WANT (pc, tablet, etc) he is A-OK with Wolfram.

Math is my worst subject and at first I was nervous because of his thick accent, but he puts everything on the board, you don't need the text book, as long as you take great notes, you will pass! He allows you to use your notes for exams, he is seriously outstanding! When he says don't worry, he means it! I am trying to take him for 1105 also!

I took him for Intermediate Algebra. Easiest math teacher I've ever had, he let us use open notes on all the exams and allowed us to retake each exam at least once if we weren't happy with the grade. He does have a thick accent but he writes all the notes down, also he's always willing to answer questions, you just have to ask. I'd recommend him.

Do not take this class unless you're great at math and have a great understanding of math already!!!

He has a very thick accent, and he is crazy about making sure that you graph things correctly. He makes up for his accent by writting everything on the board. His exams are just like his study guides and you dont have to take the final if you have an A. He is a great teacher!! but he is bad at answering questions.

Don't buy the book, you won't need it. Put together a binder the way he wants it and he'll give you 10 points to each exam you will take. Workshops are in groups so you can work w/ someone. Tests are open notes unless he says otherwise. Pay attention take notes and you'll be alright with an A or B :)
