Personally, I think this course could have been better if the homework was not as extraneous. I found myself taking over a few hours just to complete the homework assignments. I had to look at the question and write down my work to turn in for homework check. I think the amount of homework could either be reduced, or not make it mandatory to show your work. Time that had to go into other courses and priorities went into completing the homework assignments.
Use more traditional style learning, so students can process new information before jumping into foreign math.
I liked Professor Furuto's teaching method because the lecture and on the board style lets students know exactly what they should learn.
None, great teaching styles and the course was fair.
17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
He is a very good teacher and he teaches in a way that is very easy to understand.
Good, got involved with my work and helped when I needed it.
Michael Furuto is a man who is passionate about his career and is more than willing to spend the extra time to help his students with any questions.
Excellent.
Furuto is a great professor. I enjoy learning from instructors like him. He has a passion for the subject and teaches the material in a way where I find myself being passionate about math as well. I would like to take future courses with him again.
Nice and easy to understand in class.
He is an amazing teacher. He puts use to all the time of the lecture and gives a thorough lecture for each section.
Great!
Professor Furuto kept the class engaged and made it easy to understand math. I enjoyed taking the class from professor Furuto

20. My overall evaluation of this course is...
This course was a good review for me but also challenged me with new material I did not learn yet.
Challenging.
I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who is looking to expand their knowledge of math and have always wondered how to apply what we learn to everyday life.
Excellent.
This is a great course to take, I feel I now know the material I need to continue to strive in math.
If you put in the hours, you will do well in class.
This course is challenging but fun at the same time. The amount of work in the class could be tedious but it's all worth it in the end.
Was an intimidating course for me, and worried about it a lot in the beginning of the semester. But the course was fun to take, and the professor allowed the class to be interesting and easy to understand the course content.
that it helped me understand math better and feel more confident when solving mathematical problems
The course had a fair amount of information to be learned.

I didn't see any relationship in the content of this course with my major (CENTS). However, this class was a great opportunity for me to test my self. Math 135 with Furuto has enhanced my critical thinking skills immensely. I was taught how to think outside the box and become a responsible worker.
Hopefully I'll be able to move on to a higher math class next semester and have the tools from math 135 to successfully complete the next math course.
Helped me re-learn things, and taught me important new methods
this course brought back a lot of joy i once had for math.
-- snipped --
It really helped me understand math a bit more, like previous math topics that I've had a hard time with, I have a bit more understanding of them.
Iʻve learned more within MATH 135 than I have in any other math class Iʻve ever taken. I feel like Iʻve gained so much knowledge during this semester and that feels great!

Honestly, the class is good and Professor Furuto is very helpful. Although the lectures are good, I feel like there should be more resources posted. For instance, Mymathlab can be bit vague. I would suggest offering youtube videos to assist or any other websites as a guide. Mymathlab is a way for students to independently learn on their own, but along the way we may need help doing the homework as we are by ourselves. I used several youtube videos for help as sometimes the examples online weren't enough.

I would suggest supplying students with more resources with the homework just in case. (youtube videos, websites, etc.) The notes and videos/examples online may not be enough. Secondly, the class is great but i feel it would greatly benefit if it incorporated group learning. Furuto is a nice teacher, and I can see a lot more successful students if furuto can implement a way for students to interact with each other more and establish relationships. Moreover, I understand that students must showcase their knowledge and familiarity with all the content, but I feel as if the final shouldn't be based on everything learned in class. Several students may have other finals and work to deal with. Covering past material is a lot. Lastly, for the study guides they are a bit helpful but I feel as if you should post how you solved it and what homework assignment it is from.I believe it will help students identify what areas they need to work on.
Explain some of the harder homework problems!

The only thing I would suggest is that maybe he could work on his time management? It's not too bad but sometimes I would be a little late to my next class but my other professors are alright with it because it's only a minute or two.
Michael Furuto is great. I love that he mixes independent study with group work in order to stress the new material.
The homework on mymathlab became a little outrageous. 40 questions having 4-7 separate questions inside is too much, not many students have that much time to complete that much work.
Professor Furuto's teaching style and methods are very effective and I really appreciated this about him. I am not usually very strong at math, but Professor Furuto understood this and explained every topic in the simplest way. He definitely made me feel more confident about my math skills.

I feel that there should be more extra credit opportunities, and that there should be more in class reviews before exams.

He is a very nice professor. Easy to talk to. When I didn't have my homework because I forgot my binder, he was okay with me showing him next week.
He is awesome! Probably my most favorite math teacher
great professor, very helpful
He is an excellent professor! I would recommend him to any future student. He took care of any questions that the class had and made anything that was unclear very understandable. He is also very relatable, which was important for me, because I tend to have a greater sense of respect for teachers who are down to earth and have no problem showing their true colors.

More practice problems during class
Utilizes Power points, self-solving, and lecturing very well.
More group work and class involvement with problems being done on the board; rather than doing the problem and having the students just follow along and copy, the students should maybe tell the instructor what we should do next for the problem to ensure understanding/see what we donʻt understand.
Maybe a different approach when doing review days to get ready for an exam.
Try to incorporate fun ways to learn the material if the lesson is too difficult to teach.
more review
Maybe create a PowerPoint that highlights the key points of the chapter that way more class time will be spent on practicing problems. For math I think that learning by doing problems is more effective than just learning by taking notes on what the book says. Since the exams are challenging, doing examples in class that gradually reaches the same difficulty level as problems students may come across on a test, may improve the class average and help students know what to expect. I find that when students know what to expect on an exam they study a lot better and do a lot better. The study guides are helpful, however most of the time students don't know where to begin with those problems. That's why I think if we spent more time on just doing problems during class the students would be more prepared by the time the exam comes around.
Examples during lecture pertaining to the material in the homework should be added. Current examples are too simple to be applied to what was encountered in the homework.

not to use power-points too much. I feel more comfortable you writing material on the board
Utilizes Power points, self-solving, and lecturing very well.
He does a great job at doing examples.
less material in one test
-Less writing, More practice problems during class -Give students the study guide before review day, that way students can come to the review with questions about the problems that were difficult or confusing. -To get the main points of the chapter/section across have a PowerPoint that breaks it down into simpler terms so that it would be easier to understand and remember. And posting this PowerPoint up on laulima for future reference would be nice.
As previously stated, examples that are more similar to what is given in homework.
17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
He is an excellent math teacher and will do all that he can to keep the classroom in an uplifting mood, while making sure his students are understanding chapter content
I think Professor Furuto is a great teacher that really cares about the students succeeding. He always leaves his doors open. He explains math in the most uncomplicated way possible and answers questions whenever we have any. He creates a great work and learning environment.
He is an excellent teacher, and both in the classroom and out, heʻs there for his students and wants nothing more than for them to succeed and live on to their full potential. Heʻs very knowledgable, and despite the complexity of calculus II, he teaches in a way we can understand.
Great teacher!
Dr. Furuto is overall a good teacher who knows his material well. I can tell that he really enjoys what he teaches. While his tests are hard, he is always available to students.
great teacher
Great instructor, he really wants his students to do well in his class and cares enough to always be there whenever we need help. Does not intimidate the students, instead he makes the students feel comfortable so that we would want to keep trying to do our best and not give up. Just need to work on briefly explaining the concepts of the chapter/section and get to doing more problems so that we can be more prepared for the challenging exams.
He is an effective professor that nurtured a friendly classroom and helped us grasp difficult concepts in Calculus.

This course was one of my most difficult course I've ever taken, however I still enjoyed it and i was able to understand more in calculus
Great course! I will continue to Math 243
Wonderful! Iʻm glad to have taken this course, and with him as the professor, Iʻd gladly take it again. The content is very complex, but itʻs also a very fun class.
A good class, but difficult to keep up in.
This course was difficult, but I really enjoyed the intimate atmosphere and how the pace of the class is just right.
good
This is a difficult course that requires a lot of practice in addition to understanding the concepts. But it is not an impossible course to do well in just as long as you do as much problems as you can before it's time for the exam. And doing the study guide problems help prepare you for the types of questions that may be on the exam, since they're worded the same way and has the same difficulty level as the actual exam questions.
It was difficult but I actually enjoyed being in class.
