I took MATH 3B in Fall 08

I’m not a fan of this guy. I’ve tried to go to office hours one time, and he was very cocky with his approach to explaining a problem. He subtly implies that you are stupid if you don’t understand him.

I’ve taken AP Calculus BC and got a 5 on the exam. However, with this professor’s lecturing style I had no clue on how to do problems. At some point I went to the math tutoring room, but it didn’t really help for his exams. His first two midterms were pretty okay. But when I took the final, I tried my best in the logarithm problems he gave us. Trying my best to finish but wasn’t able to solve it. So even with my extra page of work, he gave me a 0 and gave me a B+ in the class. That I believed to be quite unfair, not even to give me partial credit for attempting it. But even though he’s a cocky professor, his class is not that bad. The TA’s know what he’s going to test on, and help you out. But the professor sure doesn’t.

David is an excellent instructor. He presents information in a way that is maximally useful to the student. Instead of repeatedly pulling examples from the book as many math professors do, David presents the most general forms of a problem, and then outlines the core tools you have at your disposal to solve specific instances of the general form. He happily answers questions that students have during class, and is consistent in connecting concepts to how they might be applied in the field.

Great professor. Really loves what he does and simplifies things in a way that makes the material really easy to understand. He understands what its like to be a student to the point that he drops a midterm if you didn't do well cause everyone has crappy midterm days. He's also really funny. I would definitely say he's the best professor I've had since I've been here.

He gives weekly quizzes in section based off the homework, which means if you already understand the material then you don't really need to do the homework, and he also dropped the two lowest quizzes.
