2. If this course was taken to fulfill course requirements for your concentration/major, how did this course enhance your personal and/or professional development in your concentration/major?
Dr. Gottlieb is a great professor
I had to take this class in order to qualify to take another class. The Stats class that I signed up in the Spring needs Math 103 as a prerequisite to get into that class.
Helping me move on to more math classes.
This was helpful for me to know to move on.
No at all

5. Please comment on the activities or resources that could be added to this course to improve your learning.
The class could have a TA to help him explain things to the class while working in class. I also think that math is one of those classes that should be more in class (lecturing) and book work. This is in contrast to the constant reliability of mymathlab. Don't get me wrong, I do think that it can help but not all of the students want their work done online. It is easier to see where the mistake is when we have to write it all out, online we do not have this luxury. It is either all or nothing.
Don't stop the mock exams
It was good.
There should be more problems added to the online homework

N/A
Don't do babysteps.
He can briefly cover concepts that everyone already knows instead of taking the entire class period to explain it. He can also simplify what he explains.
Good enough
The day of the homework due, we should have a "question and answer" session that goes over homework problems or the ones that students had questions and problems while doing it.
More hands on activities.

17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
GREAT
He was a good teacher. He not only taught me how to solve difficult problems but also put the problems into words. This helped me understand what the equation was asking.
Good at teaching math, and makes math easier to learn.
He is very into his field of study. His passion shows through all the time he is teaching or presenting material.
He was a good professor. A little tough here and there.
He knows what he is doing and he is very intelligent. Keep up the good work!
Great teacher.

20. My overall evaluation of this course is...
This course taught me how to solve long and difficult problems in steps.
This class was done a lot better than what they do at LCC.
learned the basics and review what I forgot.
I enjoyed the course I just hope to pass.
A little slow but a perfect paste for students who need a refresher
