13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I think that Mr. Sugikawa was one of the most effective teachers that I've ever had. He was always well prepared and was very helpful in helping me to achieve my goal as math has always been my weakest subject.
It was well instructed and easy to learn. you could call him anytime to ask questions and he would answer them or refer you to this page. in class he would make it easy to understand and answer any question presented.
to be making me remeber how to do the work
Mr. Sugikawa taught me what no other teacher could in years in a matter of months. He is by far one of the most outstanding teachers out there. He was very understanding and did not make me feel stupid in any way and was very understanding...
excellent instructor, understanding assignments/lectures, etc.
It was difficult to keep up. If you fell behind he (Wane) just left you to catch up on your own. Due to the inability of working with students ( they all had to be on the same level ) I just refused to turn in my home work, although I did complete the task. When I was frustrated with a problem, I was not able to communicate with the instructor. I felt lost at times!
Well i really liked the way he taught us and put all his effort and time to his students. He was the only teacher i think i could ever call and ask what i missed 4 class and he would explain well on the phone to us. HE was a great committed teacher.
I like this course because Wane Sugikawa instructed very well and how he taught me i understood what i was doing.
I like that Mr. Sugikawa made it easy for me to understand. He was always willing to help me and walk me through whatever problems I had.
i like his way of teaching, he made sure that we knew what we was doing. and he made sure that we was doing it correctly.
Everything just going to his class was motivating .I was.ready and eager to learn He makes math class fun
He made sure we got it.
Math1ABCD was a challenging yet fun course. The lectures and assignments were very useful ways of teaching us how to solve math problems during exams. Professor Wane Sugikawa's methods of teaching were very effective and he was very helpful when I needed help during and after class. I am looking forward to taking another math class with Professor Wane Sugikawa because he is a Professor who understands what he is teaching and he also makes sure that we understand what we are learning.
He helped me tramendously
The teacher Mr.Sugikawa explained the instructions well.
Mr. Sugikawa took the time to explain our homework and ALWAYS asked the next day if we had any problems with homework. i would recommend him to new college students :)
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
None.
No need improve.
no
none...
offer more subs and/or Teachers Assistances.
NO because just the way that he teaching is perfectly fine.
no its already improved.
I feel that it is perfect just the way Mr. Sugikawa runs it.
Not really there is nothing to improve
Have students who need one on one to work with someone who can be with the students for one on one .
This course does not need any improvements.
15. Other comments:

going to miss mr Sugikawa
please keep teaching
Homework and Lecture was very helpful.
can he help me next semester
He needs a rise because he had faith in me and pushed me and our entire class I was late every morning but that didn't matter lol he still made sure I knew my Math before I left!
none
I am disappointed that he only has 1 Math 22 class in the afternoon. I need a morning class so I wont be able to take Math 22 from Mr. Sugikawa. My only hope is that my next math professor is just as good as Mr. Sugikawa.
Mr. Sugikawa is an excellent teacher.
