Teacher is difficult if you haven't taken math in a while. He moves fast (on exam 3 when other classes are on exam 2). Will skip things he beleives is "stright forward" so you have to find the missing steps yourself (math lab). Exam class average is 69%-72%. Gives pop quizes while he passes back old papers.

Mr. Simpson is a great professor, but not an easy one. Although he is very fair and clear in teaching. I would recommend him to anyone, you will learn a lot with him and he really tries to clear things out if you have a hard time. Ways to Pass: Show up everyday, STUDY, and ask questions. Good luck. His tests are hard.

Nice guy in class but he really seems to enjoy compiling the most difficult test possible. Enjoys teaching the conceptual stuff so that you know how to do to take the knowledge and expand it into tackling more difficult problems which is good in theory but not very nice to people like me who suck at math. Stuck it out and got a C in class.

Very good! Simpson is very clear and concise. He knows his stuff when it comes down to math and definitely clarifies any issues. His exams are hard (but it's math so this is a no brainer) but if you attend at all times and do the homework and ask if you need help, you will without doubt pass this class! Highly recommend Simpson.

Professor Simpson is by far the best math teacher I have ever had. I used to be horrible at math and it would take me forever to understand concepts. But now with him, he has changed my view of math and the way he explains things are very simple and to the point. Even if you don't understand he's more than willing to help you in a nice way.

He's pretty good teacher and is really helpful if you go ask him for help during his office hours. His tests are a little hard but otherwise, I think he's a pretty good teacher. I recommend him over other math teachers.

Professor Simpson is a great. He is always open to answering questions and he takes time to make sure everyone understands the topics. If you do bad in his class its because you don't do the homework and don't ask for help. I highly recommend taking his class.

Very good teacher. He is very straightforward and challenges his students. Always do your work and show up or you will not pass. His exams are not that difficult just READ THE PROBLEM and you'll do fine. Always do homework they will prepare you for the exam(s). I recommend this professor highly.

He gives out a quiz everyday and doing the assigned homework won't prepare you for it. In order to get good grades on his quizzes you must do the recommended homework. His exams are at least 3 times harder than the homework. His exams will test your mastery of the topic. You must work your butt off in his class.

Simpson has charisma when it comes to teaching mathematics. He makes learning enjoyable and attending class feel less like a chore. He covers the material thoroughly and he is more than willing to stay after class to help with any problems. Homework is done online. His exams are a bit difficult, but with a good amount of studying, you'll be fine.

Professor Simpson is a great teacher and you can tell that he loves what he does. If you have any questions he will answer them and explain things with clarity. As long as you pay attention, attend class, ask questions when you dont understand and study you should do very well in his class

I've taken Professor Simpson for my precalc and now taking him for CALC I. You won't get an A in his courses if you don't do your work. I assigns some hw, but I wouldn't say it takes too much time, ~30-45 mins/day. He loves math and has a good sense of humor, so that makes his subject fun. Recommend him for all who want 2 learn math!!!

Professor Simpson is very easy to follow in lecture, is accessible via email, and is really nice during office hours. It is true that his exams are hard but they are also very fair. He tells you what you need to know and then expects you to know it. This is my professor of choice for Calculus.

He tries to be helpful but he is not. He tries to help the class with homework yet the class is still confused. He also sort of comes off rude. I think his lectures are great but homework and exams are hard to understand and to recieve points. Dont Take His Course!

Good lectures, but EXTREMELY tough tests. Most hw has to be completed on web assign which takes hours and hours. I failed this class, but math has never been nor will be my strength. He is more of a university style proffesor.

His lectures are very easy to understand. Now the homework is another story. Webassign is very hard to follow and since it is homework it should be practice to help you to succeed in the class but it does not. The Exams are so far left of what you discuss in class. When a class average is 60% you would think he would notice a problem.

Prof Simpson is a good teacher in general but his exams are very hard and totally different from the homework and practce.Besides, webassign system is not fair because homework is corrected by computer that may consider something wrong even when it is correct and you lose points.Failing this class delayed my plans of transfer & made me lose time.

Simpson is the best math professor I've ever had. He is easy to fallow and fun to listen to. Don't get me wrong, the tests/exams are dificult and require you to have a good grasp of the subject. Anyone willing to work at it can get an A in this class.

I have always struggled and never got higher than a C in ANY math class. However, Professor Simpson is a great instructor. He will ALWAYS address questions, even during his breaks. This class is tough, but so is math! His exams were VERY fair and hint: he asks a lot of conceptual questions! I am proud to say he helped me get my first A in math!
