First off, I have met maybe one or two teachers as excited about their subjects as Dr. Odden, and none of them work in the math department. He genuinely loves math, but his excitement makes it sometimes a little difficult to follow - that is, if you miss a bit and don't immediately ask him to go ov

Mr. Odden is my favorite teacher. He makes math seem crazy trippy and really cool. You should check out his phd thesis on solenoids. It's insane. Very clear, but likes to think too much. Sometimes we just want to learn the shortcuts. He's also endearingly awkward.

Mr. Odden is by far the best math teacher at PA (after having 3 others). His tests are straightforward, he clearly knows the subject inside and out, and he is more than happy to discuss deeper maths with you.

Mr. Odden's hilarious. Occasionally, he'll give tricky questions, but never more than two per test. His class is very enjoyable, and his tangents are always very cool.

He is pretty mean to people he doesn't know or people he has a bad impression of.

He is the best math teacher I have ever had at PA or elsewhere. So clear - so straight forward. He doesn't enjoy tricking his students like other math teachers do in the department

The funniest math teacher. He's very energetic. He's good at explaining things, but his test are wicked hard. He gives lots of partial credit though.

Had him as a substitute once; seems like a really smart and clear teacher. I'd love to have him as a regular teacher. And his shortcuts make things much easier.

Seems like a nice man. Very entertaining in class. Gives clear explanations. Not very helpful outside of class if you're not a math genius, though. Likes to give a tough last question on tests.

Awesome guy. Explains stuff so well homework isn't needed. Very very easy. An excellent math teacher. He likes SNL and Monty Python too, which is always a plus.

Boring and unable to be clear. Very unhelpful if you are not a math person- he doesn't know how to explain.

Mr. Odden is the best!!! I've never seen anyone get so excited about math. Just be careful when he tells you that he has a easier way to solve a problem, it will probably be VERY confusing!!!
