James Ryan's Recommendations
MATH 45 What Is Mathematics?
This was the 2nd time I took Math 45. Professor Ryan made it very easy to understand. All his lectures covered what was on the exams. He gave 5 exams and you are able to drop your lowest (so you may not have to take the final). Attendance is a must in order to fully understand, but if you miss class he does put his lecture on power point on blackboard. I got an A and I didn't even need my text book, that's how well he goes over the material. I highly recommend professor Ryan. 

MATH 10B Structure And Concepts In Mathematics II
Very funny personality, and great over all personality, with hardly any homework. He also drops one quiz, and one test...you may not even have to take the final! 

MATH 10A Structure And Concepts In Mathematics I
Subject matter was clearly presented, and all powerpoint presentations were online. Feedback on homework was given quickly so that you could use to study before tests. Awesome teacher, extremely fair. You should pass this class no problem if you study and do the homework. And, if you do all the homework and tests, you may not even have to take the final:) 

MATH 10B Structure And Concepts In Mathematics II
Mr. Ryan knows how to teach math so that you can really learn. He lets you work with others after the first five minutes of a quiz and even lets you bring a page of notes for the exams. He is a great teacher and knows how to make learing math a fun subject. His homework that he gives is easy and you can get all the answers from the book or he will go over them in class. 

MATH 45 What Is Mathematics?
He drops one test and two homework assignments. There is homework but it is based on things directly from the notes. He really doesn't use the book because he writes his own homework and test questions. His teaching style is great and he makes the material easy to understand. He is much better than the other Math 45 professors because he has a fun perosnality and tries to make the class fun (as fun as math can be!) 

MATH 45 What Is Mathematics?
He is a great teacher. You would love to have his class he. It is incredible how with a big class he can make all the students understand him. You would get a good grade if you go to his class everyday. He would make the final optional. HE IS GREAT. 

MATH 10B Structure And Concepts In Mathematics II
A Great teacher. He really understands the material. What he lecture is what will be on the test. He helps u understand the concept and how to teach it to a child. He allow you to work with other classmate on some quiz and some test.

Posts power points from which he lectures off of on blackboard for the class to print before class If you have an A in the class before the final you don't have to take it Gives credit for attendance Don't need the book at all Exams are multiple choice Homework load is pretty light He almost always lets out early 

MATH 45 What Is Mathematics?
His lectures are very clear and he reviews with you before the test. He'll do HW problems in class sometimes and he lets you take one page of notes for all of the tests! Go to class, bring your iclicker, do your HW and quizzes, do your page of notes for the test and you will get an A 

MATH 45 What Is Mathematics?
BEST MATH TEACHER EVER. Would definitely take him again and I always recommend him. Im definitely not a math person and I got an 88% very easily. His tests aren't super easy but if you pay attention you should do well. Even if you HATE math. Great lecturer and a nice fair guy. Definitely recommended :)
