MATH 1113
Precalculus
4****
Pros: He prints out all the notes for you, and color codes stuff he writes on the board. If you study the notes he gives you, there is no excuse for making lower than a B on any of the tests. He also is really helpful and does all he can to make sure you do well.
Cons: Sometimes he goes a little fast on the notes, but he's always very detailed.
Great guy! I really like him, one of the best teachers I have this semester!

MATH 1113
Precalculus
5*****
Pros: Great teacher!I thought the class would be extremely difficult because I hated pre-calc in high school so I figured it would be even harder at UGA, but that was not the case. I did well in the class even though to I didn't put as much work in as I should have due to stress with other classes. He gives so many examples in class and is so helpful during office hours. If you want to succeed in the class (especially if you're not a math person) do your HW, go to class, and attend office hours if needed. If I did all of those things I would have made an A most likely, but I ended up with a B.
Cons: If you hate math and think it's hard then you may still have trouble with the class. You HAVE to put in the work, if you want to do well.

MATH 1113
Precalculus
5*****
Pros: Phil is the MAN! He is the best math teacher I have ever had! After every test he looks at your work on the problems and gives you points back on most problems. Very helpful and is around for help all day of the test. Does't take attendance.
Cons: He moves quickly in class and has ten quizzes throughout the semester. (he does tell you when and on what the quizzes will be over).
If you have to put yourself through Precalc then TAKE HIM!

4****
Good teacher. He gave lectures but worked problems out on the board and explained everything very well. I am not a math person but in his class I felt like I knew anything. A lot of group work which is a plus and quizzes every other day helps with grading. The test are fair and he has an awesome grading system at the end.

MATH 1113
Precalculus
5*****
Pros: He was the best math teacher I've ever had! Great at explaining things thoroughly. Review the online quizzes before the test and do every version of them and its basically the test. He gives out handouts that are really helpful so you aren't just scribbling word problems the whole time and you can actually do the problems with him. Highly recommend him!
Cons: He can come off like you are inconveniencing him at first when you talk to him or ask questions. Just ignore that because he's actually great.

Prof. Bergonio was a great teacher. Even though I took pre-calc in the summer, it was manageable. Teachers DEFINITELY make the class and he's a good one to have! If you have any questions, he's always ready to answer them and help you understand better (:

MATH 1113
Precalculus
3***
Pros: Seemed to really help students who went to his office hours
Cons: Every grade online

Not a lot of sympathy for students

Math 1113 is hard because it is standardized for all classes and is online. He handed out all of his notes on worksheets which was nice, but you need to pay attention in class to work examples that will be on quizes and tests.

Pros: Very easy to get along with. If you ever need extra help, and do not understand some of the material, his office hours are great adn he will help you.
