He is super understanding when it comes to technical difficulties, is a fair grader, is always willing to help, and is very receptive to student suggestions in terms of extra credit, study sessions, how he should teach and more. There are no cumulative tests and no final. He can talk really fast …more sometimes but all his ppt are on oncourse. less

Rod has is students best interested at heart. He will go out of his way to make sure you understand the material and help to ensure you will pass his class. Even planned extra study help sessions outside of class. He did not explain the information to very well to me and had to teach myself through …more the online Connect Math system. less

Rod was a great professor in terms of fairness; though his lectures were boring at times (given the subject matter, I would expect this). The semester consisted of 3 exams, 1 short paper, and 1 long paper. He really does care about his students, and wants the best for them.

Great teacher and class! The tests are cake if you study for them. There isn't a single question that he doesn't go over in review or his study notes. He even gives you the opportunity to argue with him for points on confusing questions. The class also consists of a large group project but you have …more plenty of time to prepare. less

Had him for a minor course. Tends to get off subject & talk about his personal experiences vs the material. Very caring but a little extra for a level-100 course. I struggled more with this class than I did with my level-400 classes. Only his tests, 1 group project, & 1 term paper make up …more your grade. Disorganized in giving us what we need to do. less

This class is a boat load of work for a 100 level class. Rod is an OK guy, but all he does is read off of his slides and talk about his past lackluster career with the government. There are 3 exams, a huge group project/presentation, and a term report. It's a ton of work. I will not retain anything …more I learned from this class. Would not recommend. less
