His class is the hardest class I ever had. Well, at least at the beginning. In my second semester in his em2 class I've been getting A's. He's tough, but if you go over with him in OH and in class then you'll be alright. Always study the topics that he barely covered because those tend to be the tricky ones on assessments. Overall, he's a tough class that prepares you for high-level situations. Definitely wouldn't have been good in math or other critical thinking stuff without mr.shulman.

Mr shuoman's class made me think. I love his teaching style. Oh, and for those of you who think hs tests are hard..joule not studying enough. He teaches everyone on his tests, unlike ms Chang..I learned the most in his precalc class out o ant uni math class !

Ahh Mr. Eric Shulman. Good Guy. Ok, but seriously, Mr. Shulman was a great teacher. Students say that he's difficult and unfair. However, I disagree. Mr. Shulman is more than fair, he's a very caring person. Also, as long as you ask questions and go see him during OH on lessons you didn't completely understand, you'll do well in his class. Additionally, people criticize how he makes fun of people, but he's only joking around. Overall, great math teacher, thanks for teaching me. From Mastah L!

I had Mr. Shulman for Calc AB. He is very knowledgeable and gives clear and straightforward lessons. He is fairly strict, but his teaching style is organized and it works very well. He expects a lot from students, which is a good thing. The tests and quizzes are only hard because they require you to actually understand the concepts (just doing hw problems is not enough). If you pay attention and work hard, math will become a piece of cake to you by the end of the year.

Mr. Shulman is definitely one of the best teachers at University High School. I'm in multivariable calculus at UCI and he taught me such a great base of calculus I set the curve for my midterm, and I'm not some super smart asian.

Meh
Easy class until you get to the tests and quizzes, and he throws a random curveball at you and you forget to multiply two matrices by each other to prove that they're inverses so you get one point off the test.
Oh well. He lets us eat in class but not if we make a mess. oh and you can usually talk after the lesson. sometimes he gives free time for homework
he explains really clearly, and if you're stupid, he makes fun of you. but not that much. he loves basketball but he's just ok at it.

mr. shulman's class is a good class. he's a good teacher, but sometimes gives quite a bit of homework. his quizzes and tests can be difficult. go in during OH and he'll help you, but sometimes he makes you feel a bit stupid. other than that, his class is enjoyable.

HARDEST MATH TEACHER EVER.
his tests and quizzes are NOTHING like his homework or class lessons.
No matter how much you know the chapters in the book, his tests and quizzes are way harder than them, and are YEARS ahead of the level they should be.

You guys who are rating him down have to understand that he doesn't want to spoon-feed you all the material. He knows you will remember it better if you find things out yourself. His personality suits high school students very well. He'll make jokes and talk about basketball.

He can be quite witty with his students. His lessons are pretty good and he kindly answers questions, but ultimately, he expects a lot from his Honors/AP students. When we collectively fail a quiz or test, he gets really disappointed. I study out of fear!

I understand why people doesn't like Mr. Shulman. They say he doesn't teach, or he's too hard. But Mr. Shulman really doesn't teach the normal & easy Precalc. skills. Instead, he wants us to read the book and he'll teach us skills and concepts that is not on the book. He is nice, try talk to him.
