Doc is one of the best professors I've ever had. He is easy because he teaches everything in such an interesting and simple way that learning comes naturally instead of forcefully. I pity the sorry souls that don't get to have this man as a math professor.

Dr. Franks not only teaches extraordinarily well, he treats students like people. He jokes with us, laughs, and treats class like a positive opportunity. It is obvious he cares deeply about education. He is old-fashioned and doesn't utilize the technology in the classroom. But he doesn't need it. Dr. Franks is one of the best professors I've had.

Had him a couple years back and there is nothing left to be said that hasn't been said 100 times over. TAKE HIM AND DON'T LOOK BACK. It'll be one of the more enjoyable experiences of your academic career.

Dr. Franks is the BEST professor I've ever had. He is so good at explaining the topics clearly and there is never a dull moment during the class period. When the semester was over, I went back to him for tutoring in analytic methods and he was great help (got an A)! He is a great man who cares about his students. We need more professors like him!

DR. Franks was hands down my favorite professor. He was hilarious andgave this one girl silly bands and always had someing funny to say. he got "all fired up" when trains would go by and he always talked about standing on a corner in winslo arizona. I never have a hard time waking up for his class. His car has math formulas all over it. haha

This man is the best professor I've ever had. He's funny, makes boring math interesting, generally cares about you, and will talk to students he's never even had just to make them feel comfortable and welcome. I love this man.

He is my favorite teacher hands down. He made my freshman year so enjoyable. Even after the semester is over, he offers help and he really cares about his students. So easy to talk to and he wants to see you succeed. Loved him.

This guy is great. At 8 am you WILL NOT fall asleep. He is crazy but it makes you remember what he is talking about. He teaches for a bit and gives you a breather to take it all in. If you suck at Math in general, you won't after you have had Dr. Franks. Oh and he has math probs painted on his car...lol
