Ratings for Peterka, M A
Based on 5 ratings for this instructor.
Comment: The exams were very fair (quizzes were more difficult than tests, but don't really matter since they don't count for much of your grade) and he teaches pretty well though he gets flustered at times. If you can focus on his lecture and not his out of control hair, it's definitely best to take this over summer with him.

Comment: Extremely easy class if you took calculus in high school. Exams are fair, homework is easy though he assigns a lot of it. Very helpful, though tends to go off on tangents when you ask him a simple question. Take it over summer with him if you can.

Comment: The course is run differently over the summer because it's just one GSI teaching it and giving out exams throughout the entire course. He tended to get confused a lot because he had a slight stutter. The quizzes weren't too bad and if you did the homework, you would do pretty well overall on his exams.
