Not very helpful. He teaches his lectures like everyone already knows the material (goes through topics way too fast). Any notes taken in this class are useless. The only way to do well in this class is to just read the book and teach yourself. Does not grade the homework (which is either good or …more bad, bad for me. I need the practice.) less

you pretty much have to teach yourself through the textbook. When he "teaches" a lesson, its scattered and not clear, he expects you to have somewhat of an understanding already. If you need step by step instructions on how to do a certain problem or concept, he's NOT the teacher for …more you.Very nice, & will help after class one on one though. less

Dr. Shirley is most likely the worst teacher i have had in my entire life. I mean truthfully i have had three different tutors and nothing has helped because as soon as i walk into his class and he opens his mouth nothing i learned on my own makes any sense. I have tried everything to make a better …more grade and this class may be responsible for me n less

His teaching style took a bit getting used to at first. You do need to read the book before you come to class or you will be lost. He does not check the homework and does not take attendance. Overall, I would recommend him to students that already have a good understanding of Calculus and not first …more time Calc students. less

If you have never taken Calculus then DO NOT take this professor. He does not explain things clearly and speeds through topics like you should already know. Notes are useless because they are so scattered. Attendance is not required and homework is not checked. He is a nice guy though, and will …more try to help you after class. less

As everyone else has said do not take him if you do not already understand Calc. When he writes on the board it is near impossible to follow because he goes all over the place.

Shirley is great. He is smart, understands his subjects, and I feel like he presents them well. I did not have much issue grasping the topics presented in class. I somewhat wonder if many of the negative reviews are from people that just don't want to try on their own at all.
