The class is very difficult. The professor, however, is very helpful. He is willing to meet with students after class and gives helpful study tips. Also, he is really good about grading tests quickly and putting them up on OnCourse. I got most grades the night I took the test or quiz.

I found that he wasn't easy to get along with. He only had 90 minutes a week of office hours. He also would move so fast and always compared us to 4th graders.

While this class is not an easy one and there is surely much material to be covered in 153 I found it surprisingly easy. Took in 6 week summer session and found his style of instruction to be one of the best for any math class I've ever taken.

Farris is pretty funny. Kind of strict, but very fair. He knows his material better than most math teachers could hope to. Overall I would say he is a pretty good teacher.

Moves very quickly through the material and makes way too many mistakes during lecture. The only plus side to having him is that he helps explain the homework problems, and that helps since they're confusing sometimes. Be prepared to have your head spinning when class is over!

I dropped this class 3 times before coming across Farris. The guy is sort of rude, but not to any single person in general. His comments are sometimes harsh but are reality. VERY HELPFUL. Hands down the best math teacher i have ever had. Def. take him if you can.

He is fast paced, but it was a great class to take. I took it in the summer and still learned a lot from him. Taking it in the fall or spring would be a piece of cake from him.

moved VERY fast, talked VERY fast, didn't do a good job at explaining anything. I loved math before I took this class and always got good grades..but now I know that I should have switched professors the after the first lecture. DON'T TAKE THIS PROFESSOR!!!!!! makes pre-calculus MUCH harder then it …more should be! WORST MATH teacher i've ever had. less
