MAT 012
Precalculus
5*****
Pros: homework doesnt count as credit
Cons: homework doesnt count as credit makes you become lazier. so you dont do as well as you should on midterms.
great teaching methods and style. if u havent taken pre calculus before, no worries, you wont get anything lower than a C. otherwise, if u want higher score, start with workload math or pre-12.

This teachers know a lot about precalculus, but dont expect him to make it easy. He ties a lot of it to calculus. But he really is a great teacher.

MAT 016A
Short Calculus
5*****
Pros: -Straightforward, clear, well-paced lectures

-Example based teaching

-Writes out every step of problem

-Gives many good examples

-Very fair tests

-Neat handwriting/boardwriting

-Pleasant and has a sense of dry/deadpan humor
Cons: -Can be a bit quiet

-At the time that I took the class, would give a midterm a week before the final

-For some, he could be a bit dull and slightly intimidating due to his straightforward nature
THIS IS FOR HIS MAT17A CLASS HE TAUGHT ONE QUARTER:



I really liked Professor Chuchel. He is easily the best math professor I've had so far. He is what a professor should be: clear in what he expects out of his students, instructs well, gives lots of examples, provides practice midterm problems, and accommodates students during office hours and with review sessions. Have a class with him if you are able! His experience shines through his lecture ability. Put in the work, ask questions/go to office hours, and you will do well.

MAT 016A
Short Calculus
5*****
Pros: Good lecturer

Teaches key points

Good Curve
Cons: Some hard problems on the test.
I've taken AP calculus in high school and I found calculus hard, but when I took it with Professor Chuchel, everything was easy. I barely passed AP calculus in high school, but got an A with Chuchel. He's really good at explaining the key points that we need to know.
