Rossa just LOVES math. He is amazed by all things numbers; it's difficult not to love it about him. He is so willing to help and truly wants everyone to understand. I dislike math but still enjoyed him as a prof. He is a picky grader though. Huge on semantics, so choose your phrasing wisely. More written out explanations than in most math courses.

If you want to learn real math take him. He's a great prof. but you have to appreciate his teaching style. Use his office hours and get to know him. Participation is very important to him. There are 3 exams and a final. Very little homework. Not bad at all. He explains and spends time on concepts unlike most prof.s. Take him!

The most friendly and accommodating teacher I have ever had. He is really passionate about what he does. he expects you to work outside of class, however, so if you are lazy don't take him.

Avoid at all costs. His out of the ordinary teaching style was ridiculous and difficult to follow. For example: we spent 2 weeks (4 courses) on the understanding of linear functions, but only 1 class on power, exponential, and logarithmic functions. He was stubborn and refused to answer questions directly. He used participation points to hurt your grade

I did terribly in this class despite Rossa's efforts. He's an excellent (if eccentric) teacher, and if you put in the effort and communicate with him, you will do well with him.

This prof. is to be avoided at all costs. He expects you to live and breath math. The take home exams were ok, except for the one he made super difficult out of revenge. The final was made to not be finished and was different than all other exams. Also, no one recieved above a 90 in participation in the class. This guy picks favorites. Run Away now

Great guy outside the classroom, and prob in higher math. Not for calc though. Very abstract, difficult to follow. this coming from a math major, don't take if you don't have to. Calc is a practical subject and he refuses to teach the method, only the concepts.

Dr. Rossa is a very fascinating character. He loves to teach Calculus, but he sometimes is difficult to understand (not just because of his accent). His exams are very difficult; most were take-home exams, so we couldn't really ask him for help. Do the homework, PARTICIPATE ALL THE TIME, and you'll be fine.

Dr. Rossa has an fascinating and refreshing approach to teaching. He is very conceptual and visual with his teaching. He challenges you to be an independent learner but is always very accommodating and understanding. He is excellent!
