Despite this class being precalculus, this is one of the most challenging math courses I have ever taken. Although I took precalculus in high school and did extremely well, it did not prepare me for this class. Adam mair has a unique style of teaching. He speaks in riddles and a lot of the class is definition heavy. The tests are about 9 questions each and consist of at least 4 definitions that you pretty much have to memorize word for word. What makes the tests extremely hard is the combined concepts. The combined concepts would not be hard, yet there is no practice of them in or out of class. The homework is only straight forward questions right out of the book, so even if you do well on the homework it does not prepare you for the tests. My suggestion is switching out of this class, even if that means waiting a quarter to take it.

I thought Adam Mair was a great Calculus II professor. The grading was reasonable as well as the workload. The lectures could be slightly boring at times, but overall they were informative and worth my time. I would recommend Adam Mair.

Adam is an effective and energetic professor. He presents the material very clearly and at a good pace. It's clear that he cares about his students' success and makes himself accessible for them. He personality also adds to the class and makes the class more lively and engaging. His lectures made sense and he's clear about what will be on the exams and quizzes. If you put in the work and go to office hours if you need to, you can definitely succeed in his class.

The first positive thing you will notice about Adam is his communication skills. He is so articulate and not in an intimidating way either. He's really kind and smart and gives very fair tests. His quizzes, however, are sometimes designed to screw you over for the first few weeks. There will be one easy question and one hard question.
