MATH 1107 Elementary Statistics
Professor Hoover is a wonderful math instructor! He teaches the material like you've never even seen it before (even the things that are really simple). He is always smiling and warm. I was very comfortable walking up to him to ask a question. He never makes anyone feel dumb. One guy in my class asked the same question over and over b/c he never understood it, and Professor Hoover never got frustrated answering it every day. I loved getting my quizzes and homework back the next class!!!! 

MATH 1190 Calculus I
Mr. Hoover makes learning math extremely easy. He jokes around and always has a good since of humor. He tries to help his students as much as he can. If you don't understand something he doesn't mind it at all for you to pop in his office. I really recommend taking Mr. Hoover for this class! 

MATH 1107 Elementary Statistics
Mr. Hoover has been the best math teacher I have EVER had! He is very organized and teaches concepts very clearly. It is evident that he lookes over the material before teaching it and he really strives for excellency. Mr. Hoover gave me the impression that he really LIKES and CARES about teaching and his students. Do all the homework, ask for extra help if need, pay attention, and you will do great in his class.  He often tells jokes which are sometimes funny : ) 

MATH 1113 Precalculus
He is a wonderful professor. He is a really swell guy. He goes over everything in depth and really wants his students to understand everything. Do all of your work and you will have a good outcome. He is always willing to help and even tells his students to come see him anytime in his office. 

MATH 1111 College Algebra
He is a great guy. Always upbeat and joking around. Mr. Hoover made algebra class fun. I didn't know algebra could be fun but he made it enjoyable and it helped me learn it because I enjoyed it. Mr. Hoover goes over homework problems at the beginning of every class. He is also easy to approach and will help you with any math problem even off class hours. There is not a great deal of homework in this class maybe two homework assignments every week. I'd recommend him if you need to take algebra. 

Ronald Hoover
Fabulous.Enjoys teaching, very interested in the student, consistent. Door is always open. 

Ronald Hoover
He's very organized, and explains everything thouroughly. Also he's available for extra help. And sometimes he tells stories. It's a fun class.Study for the tests and quizzes a little bit, and do as much of the homework as you can, because he'll use homework problems on the tests and/or quizzes. 

Ronald Hoover
I loved Dr. Hoover. He explained thing very well and urged peope to come by his office for help or even just to talk. He mad math very fun! He tells some stories sometimes that are very fun. If you do your homework almost every time and study for your tests and quizzes you should easily make a B. Also, if you're one that always wants your tests back the next day, he's the man. He always had the test s graded for the next class meeting. 

Ronald Hoover
Professor Hoover is one of those teachers who really loves their job. He was extremely nice, helpful, and always (ALWAYS) had a smile on his face. Like other people said, he's an amazing teacher...The highlights for me was  The tests were always graded and returned by the next class period He gave practice Quizzes on WebCT for additional help The test was not too hard or easy, but required the student to understand the materialAfter all this I would never take Math 1190 (Calculus) again though.I ended up with an A in the class, after working hard for it *So don't think its an easy A*, but my problem is with the course itself.1190 is a 4 hour class, meaning instead of 1 hour 15 minutes, you are there 1 hour 40 minutes. I understand math extremely well, most of the calculus concepts I picked up in a matter of minutes.The class will run down with about 30 minutes of previous homework questions, then the rest of class is a lecture on the new assignment. The class goes the full time period, rarely any breaks. My problem with this course is that if you actually have a good grasp on math concepts already, you will be extremely bored *Regardless of teacher*. The length was killer for me, as I thought the pace was way too slow. I was one of the few it seemed who actually understood the concepts right off the bat, so you might not have this problemSo I give the Mr. Hoover a 5/5 for being a great teacher, but the course is an extreme bore for anyone good with math. If you are good with math, prepare to sit... 

Ronald Hoover
Mr. Hoover is a great teacher and very kind person. I want to take Calculus with him too! He makes math easy. He's never intimidating, you can always ask questions. He's always available in his office for questions. He's just an all around great guy. 

Ronald Hoover
He is one of those teachers who comes up with a new perspective on a hard concept. He's always laughing and always answers questions, even if its the same question day after day. He made math to where it is enjoyable. I suggest his class if you have lots of questions or just need a different perspective to understand it better. 

Ronald Hoover
Dr. Hoover was the best math professor I've ever had. He is really funny in all his classes. He tries to make sure everyone understands the material by offering help. Do the homework and you should be just fine. Its a fun class and a nice learning environment. I'd recommend him to anyone. Especially those who have trouble with math. I should know, I was one. 

Ronald Hoover
Mr Hoover was a great precalc teacher. He explained the material very well and was extra helpful with Friday classes if you needed it. His tests were straight forward, no tricks. I was scared of precalc but ended up breezing through it. I plan on taking him for calc also. 

MATH 1101 Intro Mathematical Modeling
Mr. Hoover is one of the best teachers I have ever had. Math is never an easy subject. However, Mr. Hoover makes this class so much fun. He makes math interesting through his teaching style, and his extreme wisdom. If I could take every Math course in the entire Math major requirement list, I would!!! Don't slack off. If you slack off and don't do the homework, it will build up on you and then you will be really lost. His homework is just enough to fully understand how to approach each problem. The homework is not too overwhelming and does not take an extreme amount of time. It was the perfect balance. 

MATH 1111 College Algebra
Mr. Hoover was AMAZING!! He made class so interesting with stories about his family. He is also a very caring teacher who actually seemed to care about his students. He would always walk in with a smile and that smile would never leave his face. I would HIGHLY recommend taking any math from this teacher. He explains the material very thoroughly and would always answer questions no matter how stupid it was. TAKE PROFESSOR HOOVER!!! 

Ronald Hoover
Dr. Hoover is the best math teacher I have ever had. I went into this class not knowing a thing about calculus, and he explains things so simply that you can pick up on the concepts right away. His tests are fair and he has no trick questions. He's always smiling and always willing to help. He is not trying to weed people out of the math department. He actually, truly cares about his students and loves his job. I recommend him to anyone! You wont be disappointed. 

Ronald Hoover
Prof. Hoover is an excellent teacher. I love the way he teaches math. He is one of the teacher who actually takes it to a level of a college student, not a teacher level if you know what i mean. I strongly recommend him for your next math teacher. The thing is you can go ahead, but you can't fall behind. Pay attention to all his lectures and do your homework. If you have questions on your homework, ask him the next day, he would gladly do that for you. He is alway up for a challenge and try any way possible to help you out and explain things in the simplest way. His test are not that hard, but the answers has to be very DETAILED!!! He is beyond excellent, he is brilliant. 

Ronald Hoover
Mr. Hoover is as good a math teacher as you will ever have. He truly cares about your success and wants this to be a positive experience. His lectures are well organized and do not go unreasonably fast considering how much material the course has to cover. His assignments and projects are very relevant and helpful. It is not a heavy load, even though I am a person who has to do a large amount of math every day or I don't learn it. Best of all, he writes his tests with your success in mind. He does exercise your ability on the subject but he is not out to trick you, or to make you jump the highest mountain he can create every time. If you have done the homework, you will have done all of the test questions at some time or another. HINT, HINT... 

MATH 1190 Calculus I
EXCELLENT professor!! He is very precise in his teaching and is willing to help in any way possible. There is homework due every class (it is usually two problems)that takes some people 10 minutes to complete, or in my case a trip to his office or the math lab (these grades help boost up your grade). There is 5 quizzes and 3 tests. If you bomb one of them, the final grade will replace it. He takes attendance and will replace one of your quiz grades with it. If you think you will struggle in calculus, take Mr. Hoover. He makes everyone feel appreciated and he is always in a great mood. I waited to get in his class and I am glad I did. 

Ronald Hoover
Dr. Hoover is by far the best math teacher that I have ever had. He is very organized and you always get your tests and quizes back on the very next day. He really cares about the students and you can tell that he looks forward to coming to school and teaching every morning. He is always smiling and is very understanding. If you do your homework (which a lot of it is on the test) then you will make an A in the class no problem. 

Ronald Hoover
He is simply the BEST. I hated maths before i had him, but he gave me hope and showed me math is not difficult. He was patient with me and took time eo explain concepts to me every time i asked. 

Ronald Hoover
He is a very good teacher. He makes sure everybody knows the material before he moves on. He gives quizes and graded homework along with 4 tests. He does not provide any extra credit though. 

Ronald Hoover
Mr. Hoover is a great teacher, he keeps the lectures interesting and is very observant in class. If he thinks some one is confused he will ask, he encourages questions and will never make you feel stupid, even if the question or for that matter answer is.The homework load depends on the course material, he doesn't give busy work, if it is listed it is because it covers a different aspect or concept or reinforces a concept or skill that is tougher to grasp. Do all the homework assigned and you will get do well on the tests.He generally available and accessable to the students, timely responses to email questions, returns phone messages and gave extra tutoring when needed and possible. 

MATH 1107 Elementary Statistics
Prof Hoover is EXTREMELY organized. Some may call him anal, but I call him detailed. He teaches like he cares. Also, very VERY important do the homework... Every single question on the exams (including the final's) are from the textbook. 

Ronald Hoover
Mr. Hoover is such a wonderful man and professor! Calculus is NOT MY THING at all, but he makes it understandable and works with anyone who needs help. He is ALWAYS smiling and puts me in a better mood when I see him so excited about what he is teaching. I've really enjoyed his class and I know I couldn't have survived Calc with anyone else. 

MATH 1111 College Algebra
I struggle in math normally so Mr. Hoover was awsome because i made great grades in his class. Their was around 5 test and the exam could be used to replace a lower grade. He is very sweet and has a great sense of humor. He teaches math wonderfully and is always there to help. 

MATH 1190 Calculus I
Mr. Hoover is an EXCELLENT professor! I went in to Calc I with having gotten a B in High School PreCalc and ended up with an A in his class. If you pay attention and do some of the homework then you will do very well. He creates a comfortable atmosphere that is easy to learn in. Absolutely great! 

MATH 1111 College Algebra
He was such a good teacher. He had analogies to help people remember things. He wrote on the board and spoke. Very good teacher and he made the course easy and fun! 

Ronald Hoover
You will need to do the homework and really study for the tests in order to do well in this course but that is likely the case for any math course. Professor Hoover does three things that set him apart from most math instructors I have previously had. He is so amazingly enthusiastic about math; even if you hate math, you just can't help but be positively affected by his enthusiasm. His delight with math even made me smile during this subject I personally find pretty frustrating. Professor Hoover is very accessible; he offers several slots during the week where he will tutor you in his office. He also takes questions over email and responds very quickly, no matter when during the week you email him. Professor Hoover is also very fair in his grading system. He analyzes the grade spread and curves is appropriate. He is very reasonable about making up a test if you contact him prior that you are going to miss the test. Ultimately, the final exam could substitute for our lowest test score, having a positive effect on the final average. I recommend Professor Hoover and especially as a math professor who is safe if you struggle in this area. 

MATH 2202 Calculus II
Mr. Hoover was a great teacher. He was wellprepared and organized. Mr. Hoover was always available for help in his office or via email. He really wants his students to understand the material and to succeed in his class. His main concern on tests and quizzes is to demonstrate that you understand what you are doing in solving the problems, so he gives partial credit even if you make arithmetical errors and come up with the wrong answer. His tests and quizzes are challenging, but if you do the homework and go to class you should do well. 

Ronald Hoover
I don't think I've ever seen a happier teacher. He clearly loves what he does, and understands everyone's level of understanding. No one is ever discouraged from asking questions. He doesn't treat an A student any differently from a D student. He always encourages students to come by his office for help. Getting tests and quizzes and HW back the next day is also a plus. 

MATH 1107 Elementary Statistics
if he could teach all the courses required to grad, i would have no problem with it. very good prof!!looks at things from the point of view of the student. do not pass a chance by to take him 

Ronald Hoover
Professor Hoover is the BEST math teacher I have ever had! I have never been good at math, never enjoyed it, never wanted to understand it beyond what I needed to know for the tests, but he made me interested. He is incredibly warm and upbeat and tells little stories about his life as examples. I would feel comfortable asking him anything, even a dozen times, because he never loses his patience. Take him if you can get in! 

MATH 1190 Calculus I
Amazing personality! Very helpful. 4 exams and a final which are tough but not impossible. The class did bad on one so he let us makeup problems to earn a few pts back. 

Ronald Hoover
Fabulous teacher! He explains the material throughly and loves to add humor into the mix. He has no problem answering questions and going over problems. Do your work and pay attention in class and you'll do fine! 

Ronald Hoover
Mr. Hoover wasa wonderful Professor. He doesn't let you get away with anythign, what he says in the begining of class goes and that is that.He helps in every way possible and he is always willing to help outside of class 

Ronald Hoover
He's a good proferssor, but I didn't enjoy the course. 

Ronald Hoover
Best Teacher Ever. Very well informed and actually makes you understand why the math works, not just how it works. I loved his class and if you do your work making a good grade is very possible. 

MATH 1111 College Algebra
He really takes the time to explain each step of the problem. If you don't understand it just ask him and he is more than willing to help you!! He gives you daily quizes with like 2 or 4 problems that help you review the last lesson and they really help. 

MATH 1101 Intro Mathematical Modeling
I would give Mr. Hoover more than 5 stars if I could. I would definately take him again. He is hilarious and he explains the material in lots of detail. He is always available for help outside of class. 

MATH 1111 College Algebra
Really loves teaching. Explains everything very well! 

MATH 1190 Calculus I
Awesome professor, very personable and makes a Calculus lecture about as interesting and engaging as is possible. Makes sure students are prepared for tests & quizzes with practice tests, practice quizzes, recommended problems from text and review sessions. Also give homework and easier projects to act as a grade buffer. Does not drop lowest test score but does do a weighted replacement with the final.
