Tufts University: Christian Benes - Mathematics - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Christian Benes | MATH013 - Calculus III | Mathematics2006-05-15

Review:
Prof. Benes is one of the best teachers I've encountered at Tufts. He is a very clear teacher (and thats important with such a conceptual and visual subject matter) who cares alot about each of his students. He gets to know everyones name and even their strengths and weaknesses. I would take another course with him in an instant. Calculus III is much harder than Calculus II because of envisioning things in 3D space.

Workload:
Typical math class

Christian Benes | MATH013 - Calculus III | Mathematics2006-05-11

Review:
Professor Benes is an incredible teacher. His lectures are very clear and he is good at giving real world examples of the concepts covered in the course. He is a friendly and kind professor and he makes the class truly enjoyable. Along with being a knowledgeable professor he is also extremely concerned with every students progress and his office hours are very helpful.

Workload:
The workload is the same as the other math 13 sections.

Christian Benes | MATH013 - Calculus III | Mathematics2006-01-04

Review:
Benes was extremely helpful and enthusiastic about his material. All sections are the same so the course work was no different in his section. A really good guy who will spare no expense to get you to understand the material if you seek him out.

Workload:
Just a regular math class.

Christian Benes | MATH013 - Calculus III | Mathematics2005-04-11

Review:
Christian Benes is probably my favorite teacher so far at Tufts. He's incredibly concerned with students' progress and has enthusiasm for what he's teaching. At the beginning of the year, he learns everyone's names, which makes it more personal, even in a bigger class. His lectures are very clear, although the material is hard, and he's very open to answering questions. He always stresses his availability in office hours and they are VERY helpful.

Workload:
Same as any math class - assignments due every class, 3 exams and a final. The class is challenging, but personally I think it's easier to grasp than Calc II.

Christian Benes | MATH012 - Calculus II | Mathematics2005-03-09

Review:
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 one-on-one 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 heavy-duty cramming before the exam. However, if you have to take Calculus II, definitely try to take it with Professor Benes.

Workload:
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.

Christian Benes | MATH013 - Calculus III | Mathematics2004-11-17

Review:
This class was mostly review for me, but I really enjoyed it. Christian is a very engaging professor; much better than the other Profs who filled in for him once or twice during the semester. Christian was very concerned with students' progress and every other class reminded us of his office hours. He always asked for questions in class and likes it if you spot a mistake in his work on the board and point it out in the middle of class. He also made an effort to memorize all of our names within the first few weeks. I'd say if you're going to take Math 13, take it with Christian Benes.

Workload:
Standard math, homework due every class, 3 exams, and a final. None of the homeworks were too long, although sometimes a few of the problems are pretty hard. The tests are generally on the easy to medium side though; no trick questions or ridiculous problems there.
