Tufts University: Fulton Gonzalez - Mathematics - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Fulton Gonzalez | MATH013 - Calculus III| Mathematics2005-01-15

I was very pleased with Prof. Gonzalez, and I am very glad I had him for Math 13.

Gonzalez gives clear, concise lectures that are worth their weight in gold. He doesn't waste your time. The entire 50 minutes is used to its fullest extent. This is not a class you can sleep through, as you will be busy writing things down the entire time.

Gonzalez also goes into detail about the "how" and the "why" of each concept. If you pay attention, you can truly learn the material and why it is the way it is, as opposed to a purely mechanical understanding of it (i.e. pulling levers and cranks to get an answer). This is important because you are sometimes confronted with a problem that doesn't exactly conform to ones you've seen before, and knowing the "why" helps you to solve such a problem.

Gonzalez is generally pretty helpful when it comes to questions, though he goes a bit too fast when he answers them, but as long as you don't mind asking him to repeat the answer or wait after class, things should work out.

Gonzalez is VERY enthusiastic about the material and he often gives a wider perspective about the applications of the material that is being covered. I learned a lot in this class, and I am very glad I took it from him. I would definitely take other classes from him.

Math 13 starts off easy, with vectors and simple stuff, but progressively gets rather hard towards November and December. The first test is pretty easy, so do well on it. The second is harder, and the third test is very hard. The final is hard, but manageable in the time provided. I always had plenty of time to work through the problems. The final exam counts as two regular exams, so there are five exam grades total. One of them is dropped, so if you screw up big-time, all is not lost.

The notes he gives do a good job of preparing you for the homework and the tests. At every class, depending on the difficulty of the homework, 1-4 homework problems will be reviewed.

The homeworks, done properly take between 1-1.5 hours each, on average. A lot of times problems that you will have no clue how to solve will appear, however, Gonzalez is really helpful the next day in showing you how to solve them.
