Awesome

Professor Orchard was great. He went too slowly through the material. A lot of students fell asleep in class. He doesn't choose what is in the homework. So it generally does not follow from what he teaches. He will give you tons of examples. He spends too much time during lecture.

Good

Patrick is really nice! His tests are exactly like Week in Review. You have super easy math in this course. He tries to explain everything and make sure everyone understands. There are 4 tests, lots of on-line homework. talk a lot though.

Great teacher who has straightforward lectures and always answers questions to the best of his ability. Also really funny and good at keeping the class interested. Go to the office hours, they're helpful. Having a strong background in math will get you through this class easy. A very strong recommendation!

You will be good in this class if you are naturally good at math. He is really awkward and there is a lot of homework that takes a long time to do. However, you'll for sure get an A if you actually try.

Professor Orchard was a suitable teacher for me. If you're naturally good at math, I think you should be fine. If you're struggling, find someone else instead of him. Reason is, he can be confusing sometimes while explaining, even to me. Homework is 15% of your grade, three exams is 20% each and finals is 25%. The finals would replace any lower exam scores.

Poor

I can say that, 140 itself is an easy class. I made one little form error on first scantron and the grade I got was ten points lower than I earned. I went to ask Professor Orchard and told me to leave and set up an appointment. I came back just to have him sit me down, to tell me he has the right to deduct, if the scantron isn't perfect. Just a little petty and hard to work with, but easy.

Funny and engaging class. Pretty easy, but he goes over everything a bit too quickly. Class combines algebra II material, statistics, and precalc. The homework was both easy and helpful.
