I had to teach myself the whole book. He didn't lecture at all and gave no incentive to do homework since your final could replace your homework AND midterm grade. It's your responsibility to learn everything and get everything done since he gives no deadlines. If you don't know trig and want to be taught, don't take the class.

I would not take this class unless you are pretty good with math overall. I dont think this professor is the best teacher for those that don't really consider math one of your best subjects. The class I had pretty much consit of do the homework and take the midterm and final, you had to take the test on campus.

Took him for College Alg and Trig. Its not a bad class... but whenever I asked a question he just seemed very bored with what he was doing and didnt seem very interested to help. Its good to do the homework, pretty much self taught class, have midterm and final that you can take whenever.

Took him for Calculus I online. I'm good at math (math major). The class was kinda hard. BUT--- I learned A LOT even though he didn't teach me anything. The fact that it is not multiple choice really helped me learn. If you are not a math major, though, please don't take him for upper level math classes. Midterm and final were both at the school.

meh, its an okay class. He was my instructor for Calc 3. Don't get me wrong, he knows his stuff. There are somethings I really dislike about his teaching methods: 1)only teaches by the calculator so if you don't have a Ti89, better get one cause thats what he teaches with. 2)All hw and test on Course Compass, it is the worst thing to do.

I had Dr. Murdock for Calc 1 and 3 and DiffyQ and wished I had had him for calc 2! He knows his subject inside and out and asks question that test your knowledge of the material. He lets you know what will be on the test and gives you old tests to practice. If you don't do well in his class, its because you didn't want to.

I would not recommend him to any students who are not too good with bad, but not too bad either. His lectures are monotone and soft, plus, his topics are not consistent. He knows his thing; he can't teach it! He would be great if you are a math genius, and you are just need a math credit fast!

This guy knows how to teach. Tests were hard, but it was possible to prepare for them. I could tell that he sometimes got a little frustrated when students didn't understand a topic, but he always had other ways of explaining such topics that were effective.

I took this class a couple semesters ago, and I was not very pleased with Prof. Murdock. His lectures were hard to follow. He did a poor job of explaining how to do the problems. When you asked him a question he just looked at you like were stupid. If you don't have any problems with math then fell free to take this class, but don't expect any help

Dr. Murdock is great! I just finished his Calc 3 class and loved it. His class is not incredibly easy, but he's always willing to help. He's one of the most knowledgable people I've ever met. TCC's best math prof, in my opinion!

Murdock is a really great professor. I have learned a lot this semester although with a lot of hard work and lots of OVERTIME! If you want a challenge, this is your guy!

If you are the perfect student and know it all and never have to ask any questions. This is a teacher for you. However, if you are the 99.9 percent of all other students in the world; this is not the teacher for you. If you are not lost by the first day, you will be by the second. RUN!!!!!Or just don't ask questions!

I don't think he is a good teacher. There is some prof.s that know their stuff like Murdock but he can't teach. He gives you problems but doesn't show you how to work them out and isn't very helpful. If you do ask questions he answers with a question and that gets very annoying. I personally don't think he should be teaching.

He looks like Richard Dreyfuss but talks like Sean Connery. He's a smart and fun prof. Easy A but you learn a lot in the process.
