His class isn't the easiest. The tests are really hard and his surprise quizzes are a nightmare! He is a little harsh on the partial credit, and takes off points for little procedural things. However, he is pleasant to learn from, and he teaches the material thoroughly. His presentation is enhanced by his dry wit; he is actually pretty funny.

The worst prof. at MU. DO NOT TAKE HIM PERIOD! He does not follow university policy and is very rude. His tests are longer than they should be, even if you know the material better than him you can't finish on time. Makes you come to class on random days. Don't miss class, he won't accept university excused absences. Headed towards a grade appeal.

Great professor! Very fair, just do the work and don't whine. He is super organized too, which no one seems to be at Marshall. Gave us all the hw problems the first day of class!

His quizs are easy. His tests are not difficult if you read the textbooks before. I don't do any homework he gave me but I could get A. Textbooks are important!

Horwitz is awful. I love math, but being in his class made me want to switch majors. His test are hard. Gives little to none partial credit. Smart but he can't teach. Barely passed his class with a C.

Horwitz is a nice guy but he does not explain things very well. He confused me on things that I originally understood. If you're already good at math then you will probably be alright.

He was absolutely the worst professor I've ever had. He was completely rude. He, also, did not let me make things up because I missed and had an excuse. I would NOT recommend anyone take him. Take Cuisick instead. He's much better.

Professor Horwitz is alright, but he could use a little bit more clarity in his lectures.

Worst professor I have ever had. He spent the entire class going over proofs which he rarely finished correctly. We stayed in the classroom 10 minutes late every day. After only seeing proofs in class, the test (which was 10+ pages long) included no proofs. We were expected to apply the theorems which he had incorrectly "proven" with no example

Dr Horwitz is awful. His tests are tough, he gives little to no partial credit. Class always goes over five minutes making other students late for classes. He tries to schedule class outside of official class time and frowns upon those who don't attend. He's putting material on our final that we haven't even gotten to because he moved too slow!

the WORST teacher I have ever had. Its hard for a professor to teach the students when the professor doesn't understand it half the time either.

He's a smart man with odd dry humor, but I enjoyed the class. It's amusing watching him get aggravated when the whiteboard doesn't clean well. He will help you if you need it, and his tests aren't exceptionally hard if you study a decent amount. He won't ask you something that he didn't teach.

Dr. Horwitz is very unique. He knows his stuff, but he sometimes finds it hard to get across. Little things tend to bother him, you can tell, but he is more than willing to help anyone, and his boardwork bonus points are very generous on his part. I would recommend him, but having a math background will let you enjoy his class a little more.

Gotta love Marshall appreciation day when he wore Ohio State gear since they beat MU football and hung out in the bookstore all day eating the food. So typical of him since he does it year after year. I think he needs to focus on who is paying his salary, Marshall, and the reason he is there to teach, not eat all of the free food.

RUN!!!! He is hard to understand and does not explain things very well. His quizs and test are short, but hard. He's weird and if you suck at math don't expect to learn it from him!
