Review #3 / Course: MATH 1100 / Instructor: PERLIS R
I really did enjoy MATH 1100 with Dr. Perlis. Somedays he reviews homework just as much as he teaches, which isn't bad for some people. Tolerable material and really cool teacher.

Review #4 / Course: MATH 1100 / Instructor: PERLIS R
Dr. Perlis was very nice but didn't teach efficiently. His lectures are on powerpoint and are on moodle so its almost easier to teach yourself. His tests were extremely difficult and were cumulative. He takes clicker tests daily so be in class.

This is the most pointless class EVER! You think it's easy but it's really not. I am not sure why LSU makes us take this class because it is absolutely pointless. And this teacher is HORRIBLE. DO NOT TAKE HIM!!!

strange guy but is very kind and cares about students doing well. must go to every class for clicker tests but VERYYY boring class. he puts the notes online...so it is much to easier to just teach the material to yourself.

There is a lot of material. Perlis tries to make it painless and to help you do well. He takes up one assignment a week, but he has a bad habit of "just finishing this one thing that takes 5-7 minutes" when it's time to end class.

The content of the course is so boring, but Dr. Perlis made it easy and pleasant. He really knows to teach. Take him if you don't have problems with memorizing definitions and methods of solving problems. Previous exams are repeted in the next ones.

I hate math, but this guy is awesome! I failed math twice before taking Dr. Perlis. This time I passed with a B. He is the nicest teacher ever. He knows his stuff.

This class is so easy. He puts the slides online, which saved me b/c I got to teach myself--I didn't learn anything in the lectures. You have to go to class to get the quiz points. Daily homeworks on Blackboard. Quirky guy but easy A.

Review #15 / Course: MATH 1551 / Instructor: PERLIS R
Perlis cares about his students, but you should only take his class if you're a math major, because it is full of background and miscellanous information that isn't necessary to other science or engineering majors

Amazingly good teacher. Takes an active interest in all of his students. However, has a bad habit of going over time by a bit (2-3 min).

Dr. Perlis is kinda Clumsey at times, but he's Really Nice and Really Caring. He really tries to get students Involved, even in a class with over 500 students. Dr. Perlis explains the math material in an understandable way. Test are pretty easy too!

Review #20 / Course: MATH 1551 / Instructor: PERLIS R
Perlis is a great teacher. Explained everything well, gave plenty of quizzes to prepare you for tests (but only kept the top 10 quizzes for your grade), tested on the material he taught, and always kept his office door open if you needed help.

Perlis is a great teacher and wants all his students to learn. But beware, you're going to have to know way too many definitions and theorems. Take normal Calc, this Calc is not at all like AP High school Calculus be ready to learn everything again.

Review #22 / Course: MATH 1551 / Instructor: PERLIS R
He gives at least 25 quizes and only counts the top 10, but he grades them rediculolusly hard. This class should be titled "calculus definitions and concepts." He takes off points for missed commas. It's absolutely rediculous.

Perlis gave ~40 quizes- only kept 10. 40 quizes helped us prepare for the test and gave us room to screw up.
