KNows the subject well, and teaches it in the most simple way possible.
He gives really good notes and step by step instructions on how to solve each type of problem. He is well organized and there were no surprises as far as deadlines. His main strength is his sense of humor. A little laughter goes a long way in a 7:45 class.
He teaches it where it's easier to understand.
Craig Inouye, has a lot of strength being a teacher. He's a great instructor and I hope he'd teach Math 100. He's got a great personality and humor and knows what he is doing; he makes sure the his students are understanding the course as clear as he does. He's fair when it comes to gradings and exams, good with giving our your average grade after a test and know how well you are doing, and encourages you to study and puts in time for outside class help. As for his outside class communication, he's prompt with it and responds immediately. Makes learning fun.
he knew was he was talking about and could explain and give great examples

He knows the subject very well.
Everything about math 25. He knows the easy way as well, but started the hard way so we'd understand
He's is very humorous and can relate to his students well. He cares about students passing, doing well, and being prepared for whatever is ahead. He doesn't beat around the bush, so his class is very straight forward and to the point.
He is a very funny teacher and his writing is neat and legible. Many students like to come to class where they feel comfortable with the instructor and is more likely to learn.
Mr. Inouye made Math 25 "fun." He explained everything very clearly and I was able to understand the concepts he taught. Mr. Inouye is the BEST Math teacher I have ever had!
He knows the material and willing to help
Clarity during his lessons and knowledge of material along with a funny outlook
Craig Inouye made learning fun. Most of the times class went by smoothly and here and there he would crack up a few jokes or two to keep us focused and not let of mind escape elsewhere.
He was able to make math fun even though math is not a fun subject.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
more questions on quizzes.
Nah, no need change. stay as is!
None, I really liked his class the way it is :)
none
more extra credit if students are having a hard time in class.
Write bigger on the board, if possible. I couldn't see a lot of the numbers because my eyes aren't perfect.
nothing
Maybe have Thursday be the day when there's two homework Assignments do there's more time to complete it.
none
Teach slower. It's hard to remember everything when the subject changes from class to class.
I like how he has everything schedualed and always has everything on time.
None
Perhaps make a more lenient grading method? if not then I think he is perfect as is.
None
N/A
None.
Nothing, good teacher, very organized, and very clear.
Teach Math 100.
dont review new things before one of the quizes
none
none
Be able to retake a quiz
My suggestion is always stay funny because you entertain the class and keep teaching math well. Also, keep your voice down lol....
Slow down course work. It's always at a fast pace and I understand that we only have a short amount of time to cover course work but I think he should slow down a bit when it comes to explaining.
None, stay funny
I would suggest that he maybe announce his office hours to the class a little more. But he already has it posted on the syllabus and is very helpful in class as it is.
Slow down on material and be more thorough with the harder materials.
no changes
None
Perhaps to allow personal time for students that don't understand the material or need a better understanding from the chapter. A lot of us went to math tutoring, but everyone has a different way of teaching something. The way Craig would teach it, would be the way the students knew about. Learning a different method could possibly cause confusion.
Some times his jokes are not funny. He might need to come up with some new ones.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
giving us reality checks for the class and being honest.
Always asking questions, making sure they understand the material before moving on to the next step.
He's really quick at returning homework and tests, if we had a test coming up we could hold on to the homework to help us study if we needed it. Also is very easy to contact to ask for help. Besides his e-mail, he gives out his number to his students so we can ask for help or let him know in advance if we'll be absent that day. All the partial credit he gives helped me a lot too >.<;;;
is prompt in answering emails when we have questions and also does the same in class when we have questions.
He showed concern for his students by encouraging his students to do extra problems if they need it.
He gave us our grades to help us see what we needed to wirk on or do in order to pass the class
Always asked students whether they had trouble or questions on homework. Made announcements and questioned even about work done for math lab which was easier to forget about.
he ask many questions.
He always ask if we need to go over anything and works on assignments in class with us.
Available at any time to help students with homework through email, and responds with answers in a timely manner (an hour or two, as opposed to some who respond in a day or two, when help usually isn't needed because the assignment was already due).
asking questions
He informs his students of test grades and answers their questions clearly and completely.
He warned students of upcomming deadlines.
He gave us a sheet every other week letting us know our grades and how we were doing.
He would walk around class while working on problems and help you. Work on some homework problems in class so it is less work for us to do at home.
He reminds students that he is available and when I needed help he was more than willing to come by and help. He was able to help me over the phone and that itself was awesome of Mr. Inouye. He is felxibale and willing to help the student if the student needed assistance.
He would give us different types of examples regarding the chapter.
Made himself available outside of class.
He made sure to make time in class to answer any questions students had.
yes, lets us know how were doing, telling us what we should or shouldnt do.
Craig Inouye shows a lot of concern for his students; he encourages students to do their best and helps them with questions.
he would go over our grades frequently and ask us if we had any questions
was always there for any one who needed help, always asked if we needed help.
Encourage all students to do their best each and every homework, quiz, and test. Talk to the class before and after the quizzes and tests to help students understand how they are doing and where they stand on the course.
answered and assisted all students in and out of class
he gave us grade sheets that explained what we were missing. and what we can do to improve our grade
Well he show it in a funny way, but i know that he really cares about the students grade by telling the students who are borderline to either withdraw or sign up for no credit, credit, but even though you withdraw he still wants the students to stay in class to learn the rest of the course materials.
He would explain the questions that he thought everyone would have a hard time with and give review sheets to help us better understand the subject.
He gives reviews on our grades at the end of every quiz we have which to me shows concern.
He would help you when you're lost in and outside of class. And would ask if there are any questions in the quiz, test, homework, classwork, etc...
He always gives reminders to his students before, during, and after class, about the subject or things happening amongst KCC. He explains why dropping a course to avoid a W is helpful, and also advises students who dropped out to still attend class so they'll be prepared the next time around.
He printed out progress reports frequently to manage the grading for each student.
yeah
He gave advice and is very honest with his students
By listing his number on the syllabus. We were able to call and ask questions if we needed to. Towards the ending of the semester, he handed out worksheets regarding a specific chapter we were working on and encouraged us to use the worksheets like tests and to first try and work the problems out then to check it. rather then looking at notes, and taking our time to solve each problem. Because on the test, that's not allowed.
I'm sure if he showed much concern for students, but always told us our academic standing in the class, and tell us to come in to get help
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
i would because you learn and enjoy the class.
Yes. Made learning math a whole lot easier by explaining it as simple as possible and helping memorize some of the formulas.
Yes~ He's really funny and likes to joke around. For once, I never wanted to sleep in a math class :D He makes the steps easy and clear to understand and is always willing to help.
yes i would because he is fun and is able to explain things in a way that anyone is able to understand.
I would recommend him to other students because he really wants you to know the material very well for the next class.
Yes. If you are some what good at math and is a test and quiz taker then this class would be good for them. If you learn his style of teaching then he should be easy to pass.
Yes, he made the class interesting and broke things down so that they were very easy to learn. He made it a point to stress important concepts that would be useful for later learning.
yes!
Yes, he is an awesome math teacher, makes it easy to understand.

Yes, I enjoyed going to his class and I felt comfortable.
YES! Because he explains Algebra in understandable terms.
yeah i guess but the student needs to be able to move at a fast speed and have a sense of humor
Yes, i learned a lot in his class and also enjoyed myself most of the time
Sure. He does joke around a lot. His jokes aren't too offensive either. He knows his limit in joking to where it won't harm anyone's feelings to the extreme. It does make the class become familiar what they're professor is like. It gives character. If students are able to see the way their professor is, they might not be so scared to ask questions or to joke around themselves.
Yes I would because he is fair and he is clear about his course
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
good teacher.

He is a good teacher.
I want to thank him for helping me develop a better understanding in math25. It's been great having him as my professor and I'll use all the notes we went over in class for future references.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
very funny, makes math feel less scary then it is makes us feel confident in math
He clearly knows his subject well and knows how to teach it as well. He makes students feel comfortable with him, and in the class. I don't feel stupid to ask questions.
He's organized, clear, and teaches in a way so that we know the exact process.
Craig Inouye knew what to teach us for every chapter section and was well organized. He makes class fun, as well as reminds students for upcoming tests & quizzes.
He made me think that MATH is FUN!!!* I had never liked or did good on math, but Mr. Craig explained all the formula that we have to know and the methods do solve the problems very clearly and with a simple exlanation. also I could feel he really cares his students because he emphasized and introduced what choises we, students have, such as introducing how to culculate our grades, notifying the last day to drop/withdraw, or suggesting to go for non credit. His grading is very fair and kind.
He is very enthusiastic and tends to make jokes as he teaches which kept his class interesting. He also explains the mathematical concepts in such a way that it's easy to understand and easily applicable.
Craig Inouye major strengths are explaining the chapter in every detail so we can understand it easier.
She is nice, patient, and funny.
He knows what he's talking about and explains everything clearly.

thourough
very clear and effective
he knows his material, and knows how to explain the complexities of math.
He is very knowledgable on the subject and had many helpful techniques to solve the problems we were learning. He was very prompt when it came to grading and the next class we had after taking a chapter test we received a sheet that had all of our scores for homework, quizzes, and the test we just took. The sheet also had our current grade. I wish all teachers did this after tests.
his strength is that he breaks down math so as a student i could understand it. another thing is that he knows how to make math really fun. He's a funny teacher.
He is well organized and teaches us in an easy way to understand the concept of what we are doing.
n/a

14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
nothing, fantastic but he should defeinitely make more extra credit, lots of extra credit...
I don't suggest any.
None, I think he does a wonderful job. He goes over anything you have questions about.
no changes.
Make up or extra credit would be helpful ;)
none
Can't think of any to suggest.
N/A
He should be able to make time to meet with his students outside of class when they help with math problems.
It helps doing handouts along with the homework. Homework is sometimes rushed to make sure you turn it in to get points, and by the next class we're working on something new. It's nice to have handouts for practice.
Stop discriminating!
More review practices in class before the exam, and I suggest that more homework can be done online because that way it would be easier for students when it comes to some hard problems that students have questions with since mathlab provide example and help to show students how to show the problems immediately, so students do not need to wait until they get to class to ask for help.
Try not to put down students so much when they say the wrong step/answer. The math itself makes people feel stupid enough.
Nothing really, good teaching style and habits.
Have more ways to earn points to better our grades.
N/A
nothing
it will be good if Mr Craig can slow the speed of his speech, and explain thing carefully and clearly.
None.
I would not suggest any changes
Be nicer maybe
nothing
i would suggest to slow down the pace, and crack less jokes at the students.
Nothing
No.
n/a
None
To not take points off homework assignments for no staples and allow students to utilize space effeciency on homework assignments.
He should teach MATH 103, too!
n/a
i have no changes.
None.
use up all of the time
Dont tease people that much
nothing
None at the time
No changes needed.
N/A

None
when we go over a new chapter i think it would be helpful if he could do some of the harder problems as examples cause those are the ones everyone can't do
No changes
none.
Extra Credit! haha.
Nothing you are a great teacher.
Nothing.
N/A
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?

He always walks around and asks us if we need help. He gives us many ways to communicate with him outside of class if we need help.
He always said we could contact him by email or office hours if we needed help.
He showed concerns for his students by helping us whether it was through email or even his cell phone. he would always remind us about the deadlines for withdrawal and credit no credit.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Easy to talk to, Good at assesing your problems
Craig is very organized and prepares his students well for tests. He has a natural gift of being more than a teacher. All his students love him. He is also very funny, which makes learning enjoyable.
He explains the material thoroughly so that it is easy for the students to understand and comprehend. He goes over the material in detail and explains step by step.
He has good communication skills. He is very friendly and humorous which makes the class less boring.
He's very personable and you can tell he loves what he does.
His caring side for his students.
mr inouye knows what he is doing, he makes class interesting and i like to be in class becuase he tries to make it fun making 1:50 minute fly by, he is effective in teaching the material to the class, making sure we understood the subject. He also takes advantage of technology offering his email, even his personal cell phone to reach him.
He does a very excellent job of engaging the class in math! He teaches math in a very exciting way!
He gives very good notes and is very clear about everything.
He provides a fun atmosphere to work in and also shows that he likes to teach unlike some teachers. Craig also doesn't teach straight from the book. Any person can read the text and figure it out, he teaches us tips and tricks that will help us in future math classes.
He taught us how analytically and logically think.
Concise and personable. Ability to make an almost 2 hour class go by in a flash for a subject that is normally drat is cause for celebration.
He knew his math and communicated very well with me and I hope others.
He knows the material well, he is approachable making it easier to ask questions in class, he goes over new material very detailed making it easier to learn.
Knowledgeable, humorous, caring, patient, motivating, approachable, etc. No computer teaching can ever replace outstanding teacher such as Mr. Inouye.
He knows his subject very well and is willing to help us students out.
Mr. Inouye's strengths as a teacher is he know what he is teaching very well. He has made me understand when I was confused about a subject. His teaching ways were very easy to understand and his class was never boring. I always looked forward to going to his class. He treated everyone very fairly and he is a very easy teacher to talk to and he encourages everyone to ask questions. He has a great sense of humor and shows his students that he cares about us learing the subjects we are covering. He also lets us know how we are progressing in the class so that we are all very aware of what we need to do in order to pass the class.
he seems to know the subject real well
The enthusiasm that he brings to the classroom which made for a comfortable environment. Necessary for us who are slower learners. He was very approachable and concerned that we were grasping the material. One can see that he is concerned about the students well being and educational goals here at KCC.
he kept me awake and was fun and good teacher
He is a very good teacher that is knowledgable in the area that he teaches. He interacts well with students and encourages an atomosphere to make learning fun.
As a teacher, he informs all his students' grades weekly. He knows what he's talking about and teaches it well for his class. Because it's summer school the lessons covered by each chapter he goes fast. But for those who don't understand, he breaks it down for them.
Excellent Teacher!!!
He doesn't make it boring
A good teaching way, and have fun in the class.
Ability to connect with his students to get them interested and participate in class subjects.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Nothing
None, he should keep teaching his students as he has been doing.
None.
none
nothing
Nothing!
none at all.
Although joking around is great, I believe that there is a time and place for everything. On several occasions, I found Gerald to be highly disruptive, and sometimes very disrespectful to both the collective class, and you, the teacher. Frequent outbursts on some days left me feeling distracted at best, slightly annoyed at worst.
None, he's a very good teacher. Makes learning fun.
None.
nothing
Don't change.
I do not recommend any changes for Mr. Inouye. His way of teaching and his personality should remain the same. I enojoy his class just the way it is.
Not a suggestion to him personally, but in my opinion I needed to take this class in a regular school session, Spring or Fall. Even with the MYMath Lab component of the class this was too much material to cover in too little of a time frame. It has been more than 35 years since I took this stuff and I really needed to focus more than the other students.
nothing
none
none
NONE
none
Too much homework in this class.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
By asking if anyone had any questions any time and by going around the class to make sure people got the criteria
Assigning us homework, giving us detailed notes, providing review sheets, having us do homework in class if we have any questions.
He is always willing to help his students. He asks us if we have any problems we don't understand. He always walks around and offers to help his students.
He gave us our average grade every week and suggested us if we needed to drop or how to raise our grades.
we were constantly aware of our grade.
He helped them with problems that they couldn't understand.
great communication tactics using email, cell phone, and 1v1. allowed students to stay in the 2nd session of class if missed original class.
He made himself accessible, even after hours, to help us when we had a problem with an assignment.
If you e-mailed him, he would e-mail you back or do the problem in class.
He constantly told us to email him or call him if we need help or have questions; no matter what time of day. After every test he gives you a sheet of paper of grades for everything you have done for the class.
n/a
He showed concern for the financially challenged student by offering some money saving tips. In addition, a phone call to a hungry student's mother was priceless. Attempting to satisfy the basic physiological need for food so that one may focus on the task at hand (in that particular case, Math homework) was right on! Too bad she didn't bring him food. Now THAT, would have been classic!
Gave us his cell phone number and encouraged us to call him at any time.
Always goes over the homework/quiz/test questions to clear up an misunderstandings or problems. He walks around the class to make sure students are not struggling, and helps them when needed.
He would check and help every single student whether you for assistance or not. When you did need his assistance, he was patient even to find my error. Encouraged us in various ways for improving our learning.
Talk to the person
Mr. Inouye shows concern for his students by taking the time to go over anything anyone in the class needs help on. He always encourages us to ask alot of questions. He goes around the class when we are doing our assignments and checks on each and everyone of us on how we are doing and if he notices anyone of us needs help he will stop and work with you one on one until you understand. He always lets us know that he wants us to do well.
asked us if we needed help on problems from the homework.
I had some personal challenges with my children being left at home unattended and they needed to be looked after until there summer session started on June 1st. Craig allowed me to what was necessary to attend class.
he would help us with what we needed
He always expressed his willingness to help if a student had a problem with the course work or questions.
He tells us to come to class everyday and not to be tardy. He gave extra credit work for those who needs to boost up their grade a little but more.
He let the student call him when they have some problem do not know how to do,etc.
He talked about how we can improve our grades and helps a lot with home works or mathematical equations that we don't understand.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yeah i would because he helped me refine my math 24 and help me learn what i missed previously
Yes, I would have confidence that the student would excel in this class.
Yes! He is one of the best math teachers around. It is not easy to take a math course during the summer session because it is so accelerated however, I was able to handle the work because he taught the material so well, step-by-step.
Yes because I enjoyed the class.
Yes because he's easy to understand
Yes. Cause he knows his math and has a funny personality.
most definiatly recommend, i took a math 24 class as mr inouye as an instructor, i would like his as my math 25 instructor if possible.

Yes. Cause funny, he is a good teacher, atmosphere in class is great.
I recommend Mr. Inouye to students because students will be very comfortable in his class and learing from him is easy. His personality makes the class fun and makes you want to attend his class every day. Homework for his class always pertains to the subject covered in class the notes he gives for students to take is clear and not confusing. I also recommend students to him because he is very knowlegable in what he teaches.
yes, he makes class more interesting
"Yes"He came highly recommended to me by other students, however I should have taken this class in a regular school session and not the summer.Very Good Instructor. Luckily I have the mathlab to fall back on as a review.
yes becuase hes funny and can teach
Yes. He is an excellent teacher.

yes, a very fun teacher. Students will surely feel comfortable around him making it easy to learn and interact with Mr.Inouye.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
I wish i could take him for math 25 and am very happy I took his class for summer.
Craig Inouye is a great teacher. He knows how to explain so that students will catch the idea. I was fortunate to have him as my teacher because I feel that it is important to have a good foundation for math, and now I feel equipped and prepared to move on to the next level of math.
He is very humorous.
he da bomb
Excellent teacher!
I wish he taught higher levels of math, too! Instead of Math 24/25 :((
He has taught me how to look at numbers as part of my life in a different way.
One pretty cool dude. Inouye helped me to re-evaluate and reaffirm some of my own beliefs. Any teacher who has the ability to make students think about issues outside the scope of the particular class, makes relevant points in how Math relates to life outside the classroom, teaches life skills, in my book, deserves much respect and commendation. Kansya wo komete, hontouni arigatou gozaimasu. Otsukaresamadesu.
thank you for having his as a math teacher.
Very good teacher!
I am hoping to have him as a teacher again in his classes do not fill up instantly. He makes me appreciate math and although I only need to take math to 100, learning from him makes me want to learn more beyond math 100.
Great teacher, recommended to those that needs to take math 24.
Mr. Inouye your math class has been fun to attend. This was the first math class that I have enjoyed being in and have wanted to attend everyday. When I was confused you have taken the time to help me. Your classes were never boring. Please don't change the way you teach or your personality with students. You are very good in what you teach.
He was open and upfront about the limited time that we had this summer session toward us completing the course, there were too many personal challenged that I had with my children to allow me to focus, he did mention this on the first day of class that we needed to be attentive, he was right and I could not focus or catch up. I will attempt this call again in the normal school semester.
he cool yo
he loves movies! He likes to be ghetto and pick-up X-L popcorn bags in the trash with the refill tab on it.
RAISE :)
Good teacher!
His methods of teaching are very effective and clear. Straight to the point yet simple and fun.

16. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
He knows how to teach math in a way that no other teacher has been able to ever teach me.
I liked that he was able to explain things clearly in a way that everyone could understand him.
i think the instructor in the class help student
Math :) He is a nice instructor and does a good job teaching math.
He explained everything very well he broke all the information down into tiny pieces so we could understand it....at the same time it felt like i was dumb like a kindergardener but most of the time that was very necessary. And he made the class interesting because he had a good sense of humor he doesnt make the student feel stupid if they dont understand. He is really good about making himself available for his students and show genuine concern for them! :)
Craig was very knowledgeable about Math, He made the class fun to learn.
The instructor is easy to get a long with. He does a lot of examples on the board which are very helpful. The reviews Craig passes out are very helpful.
Good knowlege of subject matter and great personality. Makes class funny and entertaining instead of boring. Good at explaining the work and showing how to solve the problems. Very well organized.
Gets along with the students very well as if we were his friends. Has a good way of teaching the work to the students.
Hes an awesome teacher! He made math simple, going over homework assignments, quizzes and exams.
Jokes a lot which makes the class fun but he knows when to get serious when he needs to which is a plus.

18. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
none
n/a
Slow down to make sure the entire class understands rather than moving on when just one or two understand. Good teacher just needs to make more of an effort to make sure his entire class is on the same level.
N/A
If there was anything that I would like to see him do more of is to have the student come up and solve the homework or review on the broad. I think this help as a teaching aide.We did this in my last class. It made the class help in the learning, help other students who were struggling and overcome areas where we were stuck or didn't understand.
none.....
I dont think the instructor needs to change anything just keep doing what your doing.
Nothing!
19. How did the instructor show concern for students?
he always asked us about problems we had with homework before we turned it in.
He would ask if anyone had questions, and if we needed help on the homework we could call him or e-mail him.
By offering help and make suggestions. After quizzes he stayed after class to explain where we went wrong. Greatly appreciated!
he always would get back to you if you had question. often by email or office time.
Craig is very good about emails and communicating with students and accepting late Homework.
Through social interaction and providing his cell number and email for any questions. Also by giving extra credit papers and assignments.
he gave us his phone number and otehr contacts so whenever we need help we ahd many ways of asking him.
Always willing to do any problems that we have questions on till we understand them.
20. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes he is an exelent math teacher
Yes, i would reccomend this instructor to other students because he was a good teacher that knew what he was talking about and knew how to explain how to do the work clearly.
Yes, I would recommend Craig. Very knowledgeable!
I would definitely recommend this class to other students because of all the reasons above....
Great teacher, knows his stuff. Would recommend him and take his class again.
Yes, I would. The instructor makes it a fun learning atmosphere.
yes, He is good at his job and is enthusiastic. Also he keeps students informed on due dates and test dates in a timely matter.
yes i would recommend this instructor to other students because he speaks clearly and very well at teaching the work.
I totally would and already have. His class is easy to follow. His lectures are simple, his exams are exactly what we studied with no surprises, his bubbly personality keeps you focused and interested in the subject and I especially like that he shows you youre grade after every exam so that you can keep track of how you are doing.
Yes because he has a very big sense of humor and will crack a joke every chance he gets and they are really funny! But he teaches the subject really well and knows his math.
21. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
he does great work and sould get a raise.
n/a
I think I said it all....
Just allow the students do come up and work out the problems that they don't understand and then help them with what area that can't understand.
I'm pretty good at all other subjects except math! It's been years and years since I've done this type of math, I'm trying sooooo hard to perfect my work. This instructor shows concerns towards students in a humorous way which I find hilarious and interesting. I never had a math instructor who seems like they enjoy their job, it appears for the first time I actually got a joyous math instructor! Craig makes learning fun and entertaining, it's easier for me to grasp the subject with that type of atmosphere especially when we students are going through our own personal issues/troubles like most college students are. I would recommend.......
i enjoyed your class and your jokes. thank you and keep doing what your doing.
awesome teacher!!!
I be reppin' that Maui Built all day!

16. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
He really knows his material and he knows heʻs smart in math. What I really like about him is that heʻs not "stuck-up" about it. If someone is struggling, heʻs always there to help. Heʻs super funny so he can keep some what of his students up. Math is not everybodyʻs favorite subject and he knows it so he doesnʻt put so much pressure on to us. He just wants us to actually know what weʻre learning.
he knows the material very well
Knows the subject well and has a great sense of humor which makes class alot more enjoyable!
knbows area well and makes it fun.
being patient and explaining the material thoroughly.
Mr. Inouye has a great way of helping students understand this difficult course. He looks at the majority of the class and if we have a blank stare on our faces, he knows that we don't understand and will take the time to go over it. Another strength is that he has made math a good learning experience where the students can understand the course material.
He literally teaches us the material step by step. and it is much easier to understand the material that way.
I usually didn't bother him during office hours so I put neutral cause I don't know if he was there or not. He knows how to make class interesting, which is good, it keeps everyone awake. Even thought he can seem rough aroung the edges I think he is concerned about the students.
knew the subject very well
His personality and knowledge
100% knows the problem well and answer it correctly
The teach knew his material very well and he made the class fun and interesting
very organized knows subject well shares faster/easier methods grades fairly
The instructor's knowledge of the subject and how he teaches the subject.

18. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
I donʻt think he needs changes because heʻs a really good teacher and he knows what heʻs doing. He does go pretty fast like a section a day but he really explains the stuff well. Maybe if thereʻs more time to learn each section itʻll be easier to understand it.
Math lab, was helpful its just it had to be exactly their way or it would be wrong.
none
Nothing much.
go over the material more than once
none
none, because changes was made then the classes would be boaring.
The instructor does not need to change anything.
19. How did the instructor show concern for students?
He gave us progress reports every so often which I really appreiciated so I know how Iʻm doing and he made sure if we had any questions to see him. He would also help us with what decision to make for registering.
he encourage students that were having trouble in his class to see him for help.
Always willing to help
he would recommend his students to see him during office hours or call him when you needed help with your homework.
The instructor showed concern by taking the time to address the class and pushing us to do our best. He was always available by phone or email if we needed help.
he would sit down and help some of them, outside of class of course.
answered questions if you need help, and went over material somewhat thoroughly
give a lot of examples
He would help us start our helping.
By giving us our grades after each test and telling us what to do to pass the class.
20. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
yes i recommend this teacher to everybody because he is super funny and doesnt make math boring. He explains it really well and always answers questions.
yes, nice teacher and good at explaining.
Yes, Mr. Inouye knows the subject very well and also has a great sense of humor! Also his teaching style helped me learn alot more compared to some other instructors!
yes, fun and you will learn how to do math.
definately! he is hilarious in class, but he also helps the students a lot.
I would highly recommend this teacher to other students because for a person who has a hard time understanding math, he taught the material in a way where it was easier to understand and made learning math a good experience.
Yes, I would recommend him to students who need a hands-on teacher who tries to make everything easier for everyone.
Yes, of course.
i would recommend this instructor if you have time because if you miss a class, you are screwed.
ABSOLUTELY YES
yes, very easy to get along
Yes, He is funny and make the class very interesting and makes the atmospher welcoming.
yes, very helpful. patient. will explain if you don't understand a problem/certain step.
Yes, I would recommend this instructor to students because how the instructor teaches the subject.
21. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
great teacher
Best Math Teacher i have had!!!!
I would like to say to keep up the good work and thank you for a great semester. Thank you for making math a great experience and pushing us to do our best. Take care!
Oh Idk, he's a great guy and teacher, it would be nice to be in his class again, but after taking 25 3 times, once with another instructor I hope to have a Math 100 instructor next semester.
