"Hilarious" "There for you" "Respected by students"

He is an amazing professor that makes the lectures more interesting and always looks for participation. He also always asks around class to make sure everyone is understand the lecture and if you are confused he quickly helps you clear that confusion. He treats everyone as equals and makes everyone in his class smile.

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.

MAT 181 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

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.

MAT 181 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

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
