Sturr is very clear, helpful, and makes it possible to pass Statistics. I took this class previously with other instructors, Sturr is your best bet if you struggle with math/stats. Online homework, page of notes for tests! In class work on the computers and in class quizzes enforce that you learn the material.

Great, sometimes a bit dull, but VERY helpful and moves slow enough to be understood easily. Not persay an easy A, but if you put in the time and do the homework you'll definitely get one- notes allowed on all tests, etc! Definitely take him.

George is humorous, quirky, and playful with his students and may go off on random subjects sometimes, but he is a really good teacher and he WANTS his students to do well. We even got a page of notes for each test. He is also lenient with tests if something immediate comes up. I'd definitely take him again if I had to take another math class!

Lectures cover all material on tests, covers material thoroughly, gives pre-tests to prepare, fair on grading if you show your work. Explains statistics in an easy way to follow. All homework online.

Stats is a very dry subject for me and I love math. Besides the lectures being a bit boring, Sturr was pretty good at making sure everyone understood the subject before moving on. He has a good pace and is a pretty laid back teacher.

Easy going teacher, often makes silly mistakes in class, but it makes him relate-able! He's not the type of teacher to completely knock off points if you make little mistakes of your own on tests- which is great. Partial credit is fair on tests. Tough class.

Wow, very hard class, I don't know if I could have got through it with anyone else. I have never seen a prof. so prepared for class. Great lectures, great examples, hard tests. He looks like a better looking George Lucas. Always calm. Great teacher....don't miss class it's hard to catch up.

Stuff is an awesome teacher! Clear, concise, and adheres to the syllabus. No fluff in this class, here is the equation and this is how you use it. Statistics is a dry subject but he makes it kind of fun.

Sturr is not a good teacher regardless if you are good at math or not. That being said; about the chili pepper, this guy looks like Ted Danson, make it a Habenero!

Professor loves to lecture, not necessarily on the correct text grades are based mostly on work but Professor rarely explains how to solve the work

I took this class two semesters ago and failed it. He was more interested in his new math program he was creating then actually teaching. I learned more in the first two weeks taking math 15 with Herring, then the whole semester with Sturr. Take Herring if you can get into her class, she is amazing, makes you feel like a math genius.

Good teacher, but can be monotone. I had him for a night class and it made it challenging. Once he gets comfortable with the class he has a sense of humor and will joke around. Chill teacher, moderate tests, fair grading. I would recommend him

Math geeks! Don't take Stat at the JC if you can help it. It's terribly, terribly dull and basic for anyone with a good grasp of math. That said, Sturr was the most methodical and organized teacher I've ever had. He doesn't get distracted, and his lectures are excellent (if devoid of interesting off-topic tidbits).

Mr. Sturr was all over the place. We were the first class to use mymathlab with him and he didn't know how to use it. The practice tests had so many errors and everything was last minute. If your not strong in math...I would suggest taking someone else. I personally don't like mymathlab.

do not take this if yo are ok in math. I took algebra 1 as a freshman in high school, I love math and this guy knows how to talk in circles. He is nice, but will go off subject and talk in detail about other math only to tell you that you do not need to know any of what he spent the hour talking about, its just fun to know.

If you hate math and simply aren't very good at it, then this class will be hard for you. But sturr is a very good teacher and his lectures are very clear.

Sturr is a great stats teacher. He makes the subject matter conceptually and practically approachable by walking you through the "classic" methods of doing things before showing you how the technology that HE made can do the job with the click of a button. He lets you take notes with you to the tests, and makes technology available during tests.

I am one of those people who are horrible at math. I dreaded it and put off taking math until my sixth semester in college. I was so relieved when i found out how helpful and crystal clear Sturr is. The homeworks are straight out of the book. The tests are easy if you do the homeworks. Overall the best math class i have ever had!!

Excellent Teacher. Hard to miss something as he repeats himself a lot, but in a non-boring way. Very available for questions and explanations. Also very personable. So glad I dropped out of P. Vetrano's class - after 2 times, and waited for the next semester to take G. Sturr's instead. I highly recommend this teacher, first Math class I enjoye
