Mary Glaser is the best math teacher I've ever had. That might not be saying much, since I've had some rotten math teachers in the past, but she was smart, funny, and incredibly energetic. She knows the material so well, that she was totally comfortable having students correct her if she made any mistakes on the board. She made a real effort to encourage participation and sincerely cares about students' understanding of the material. From her Sponge Bob socks to her stories about playing in a band to her extensive knowledge of methods of integration, Glaser really made the 50 minute periods fly by.

There is homework every night, but it's certainly manageable if you keep up. Tests are tricky but if you go through the old tests posted online, it's much easier to do well.

Math 12 is cumulative and more difficult than Math 11, so you have to put steady, consistent effort into this. Cramming not recommended. Do the homework, but get your questions answered early because they can pile up. Use Blackboard's practice problems, they help tons.

Prof. Glaser is an amazing math teacher. She explains things very clearly in class, and will explain them in multiple ways so that everyone understands. She also gives very clear handouts summarizing important information so you can concentrate on understanding the material rather than taking notes. She even brings props to class to help with difficult concepts! She has extra office hours before tests, which are very helpful. All in all, I found this class enjoyable, because of Prof. Glaser's fun attitude and straightforward teaching style.
Workload:
Same as any math class  homework due every class, but it only counts for extra credit in your final grade. Do the homework, though, because it's the only chance you get to practice the problems before the test. Study for the tests and go to office hours and you'll be fine.

Prof. Kilmer was quite a good teacher  straight, and to the point. She didn?t dillydally around in class, and in most cases this was helpful because she dealt directly with the course material. However, a few times this resulted in some of the material going over my head, since she went a little too fast in certain sections. However, careful reading of the text were enough to understand what she meant....as long as you paid attention in class.
Workload:
The workload varied, since it was mainly homework assignments. Sometimes you would have 10 problems due in for the next morning, sometimes fewer. However, it?s easily manageable even if you try to do it an hour before class starts. Only 23 out of 33 HW assignments were required, but each extra HW assignment adds 0.2% to your final grade, which can make or break a grade barrier.

Probably the least enjoyable experience of my life. Professor Hahn is nice enough, but she's not very clear. And as others have said, she makes a lot of mistakes.

Let me be honest with you. I went to every class through the first two tests and only learned one thing. I became a master at sodoku. Essentially, this is the kind of material that you must teach yourself unless you have an organized teacher that doesn't spend half the class explaining proofs that "are necessary" and subsequently not completing the lesson. Through all the courses I attended I do not think Professor McNinch finished one lecture in its entirety. Don't take this class with him because like Borat says, "You will be sorry."
Workload:
It's all the same crap for math 12 but even harder when you have a teacher that can't teach. whoever evaluates these people needs to be replaced because he or she is inept.

Although the exams are sometimes considered annoying, Quinto makes up for them (they're department exams, so all MATH12 students take them, not just his class which is why its not graded) by his avid and active presentation of the material. This is not just another boring, monotone math teacher. He may not get every problem he solves right on the board (which is funny in class, because we have to correct him) but his spunky nature and enthusiasm about the material makes his class an incredibly entertaining experience. However, if you are into "Perfect" teachers who get nothing wrong and never make mistakes, and you do not care about how engaging they are (ie. they are dry and boring and that doesn't bother you), then Quinto is not for you. Other then the occasional wrong variable or coefficient, his class is BY FAR the best math class I have ever been in to date (or at least the most entertaining). Its a shame that not all teachers are as enthusiastic as him.

Professor McNinch is a very kind and caring professor but his teaching ability is weak. He often mumbles and babbles and spends too much time on the simple and unimportant things while not dedicating enough time to the more difficult concepts. If you take McNinch you should read ahead before the lectures and spend plenty of time studying. Aside from McNinch's shortcomings as a teacher he is an almost godlike man who deserves to be revered. As far as I know he has committed no felonies or serious infractions of the law. In my expert opinion professor McNinch is more of a spiritual guide, a guru of sorts, and should be put on the fast track to sainthood in the Catholic church.

Nice guy but HORRIBLE teacher. Talks too fast, has trouble articulating the application of theorems. He spends more time showing you the proofs of the theorems  how they originated..etc.  so he never has time to teach you how to apply the theorems to the homework.
In the end, you learn by yourself by reading the textbook.
I'm not particularly good or bad at math but this professor just totally killed any interest in it. If you take this class, definitely get MARY GLAZER instead because there is so much material and so many similar theorems that it gets a confusing (the textbook uses a lot of flowery, circumspecting ways of solving the problems also) so it is beneficial to have a good professor who teaches CLEARLY and gives out organized handouts.
Workload:
Pretty standard. Class meets three times a week and homework is due at class each time. Most people spend about an hour to two hours of homework for each assignment.

McNinch cares about student progress, is enthusiastic about math, and has sufficient office hours. But when it comes down to his teaching skills, he is really quite bad. Although he 'knows his math', his disorganization, strange mannerisms, and bad handwriting make it impossible to understand him. You'll end up learning the material from the textbook if you take this class. I would not take another class with this Professor McNinch.

The workload is typical of any other math class. Daily optional homework, three tests, and a final. It just becomes hard if your professor doesn't teach properly!

Out of all the classes I have taken at Tufts, Math 12 was by far the hardest. However, Professor Schnapps is EXCELLENT and has a real gift for teaching. She is not only intelligent, but is also able to clearly explain what she is talking about through theory and examples. Also, compared to other professors, she seems to be one of the best in the Math Department from what I've heard.

I would never take another class with Professor Hahn. I pity her as a person, because she seems nice and is not an awful teacher on purpose, but in my opinion  she can not teach.
Aside from the fact that her explanations are generally unclear, she has made more mistakes on the board than any teacher I?ve ever met. When people point them out, she laughs nervously and says "oh, you should have told me." What is we didn?t catch her errors?
Math 12 is a difficult course to begin with, but if at all possible, avoid taking her class. Other professors teach the material in a much more professional and useful manner.

Professor Benes is by far the best professor I have had so far at Tufts. He genuinely cares about his students' progress and understanding of the material. He also does an excellent job presenting the material, explaining his reasoning every step of the way. He is always available for extra help outside of class, and he will even create additional time to meet with you if his office hours do not work. I found going for oneonone help was the best way to understand the material.
Calculus II contains a lot of very difficult material and the lessons move very fast. Each exam tests you on an enormous amount of information. To do well you must not only do all the homework and pay attention in class, but also do a lot of heavyduty cramming before the exam. However, if you have to take Calculus II, definitely try to take it with Professor Benes.

A problem set, which usually takes an hour or so, is due at the end of each class. There are three midterm exams and one final, which goes down as two exams. Your lowest exam grade (or half the final) is dropped at the end of the semester. Same as every math class.

Jon is a very easygoing guy and a pretty laid back professor. His explanations are always very clear and very helpful. He doesn't care much if you don't do the assignments, but don't throw away extra points because they do make a difference. IF you choose to not do the homework, still try to go to every single class. Going to class every time, you can easily get a good grade. It's hard for a lot of people to show up, since the subject itself is very very awfully boring and tedious. But he is a funny guy. He's fine with people being a little late too. He's a little too laid back sometimes... you find it hard to go to class every time since he's so lenient.
Workload:
Assignments for every class, there are 3 midterms and 1 final. Workload is not too bad... just show up in class and take good notes and you're all set. Assignments are more for your own chance of doing practice problems than anything. You hand them in, but they don't even have to be complete to get a "check".

He presents topics relatively clearly through examples and notes (although his handwriting is horrible!) and will ALWAYS be sure to answer a question or clarify information at any point.

The work is the same for all Calc II classes  about an hour (sometimes more, sometimes less) worth of problems a night. You get all of the assignments the first day of class, and you have to turn one in each class, although you're always allowed to turn stuff in a day (sometimes 2) late and still get credit.

Calc II is a tough course, irregardless of what professor you have. Know this before enrolling or it will eat you alive. As for Guiterrez, be prepared to do a lot of independent learning/studying because he rushes through the material in lecture without thoroughly explaining a thing. When teaching a new concept (most are hard), he simply rushes through an example or two using his internalized rationale and leaves students bewildered and confused. Having a different professor will do you well in this course, because I sat in another calc II class once and the prof. explained what she was teaching amazingly. Too bad I don't know her name...
Workload:
Homework is assigned for each lecture. It provides good practice for what you (supposedly) learned during that day's lecture. However, with Guitierrez I couldn't understand a thing he was "teaching" so I was unable to do most of the homework. This turned out ok for me because I crammed like mad before the exams and did alright, and the homework only counts as extra bonus points in the end so not doing it didn't hurt my grade. But I don't advise skipping out on homework and then cramming to learn it all, I only did this because I never learned anything from Guitierrez.
