Started out as an online study but transitioned to in-class student. Instruction delves too much in areas that do not facilitate learning about Calc, which makes it difficult to score well on exams. Exams created are not in sync with class work. Class is so hard, he grades on curve. If possible take class somewhere else.

I hope Dr. Skidmore is very well paid because he's too good for this MSMC. I didn't care for math when I took his class and my major at the time at had little to do with it. After transferring out of MSMC, I ended up earning a bachelor's in economics. Thanks Dr. Skidmore, because what I learned in your one class helped my in many Econ ones.

Don't think you will pass this course will only small amount of effort. This class takes full dedication for learning and practicing exercises. The grade is reflected on exams. STUDY STUDY! If you have a question, do not hesitate to ask him in class or office. Show him you care!!!

This class is intense if you are re-learning or just first learning calculus. Attendance is mandatory!!! If he doesn't call names, but just looks around... make sure he sees you! HW is a requirement for points and there is a quiz every Wednesday. The large % of grade is the exams, there is about 4 in semester. Be ready to study and pay attention!

Dr. Skidmore's explanations are clear and and thorough. He will explain the material as many times as you need. He made even the most challenging concepts understandable.

Homework is due twice a week and there is a quiz every Friday. Exams are hard but are not impossible if you take the time to study and understand the material. Dr. Skidmore is very helpful and approachable.

Class was very challenging. I'm not really a math person in the first place but I usually still get an A in the class. But not this one. Dr. Skidmore is a good teacher, but the subject material is very difficult.

Dr. Skidmore's class was very helpful. I never had good math teachers in high school and I never understood the material, so I started at a low math level in college. I thought it was going to be high school all over again, but Dr. Skidmore knows how to teach! If you need help, he will repeat things as many times as you need. He's awesome!

He's a good teacher b/c he loves what he does; sandals with pants every day, best to pay attention and not be distracted by his way of dress.

Actually made the subject interesting. Take the notes, and study them. Tests typically follow the notes with few if any exceptions. Love the parrot. Great Prof.

His classes are hard because the subject material is difficult. He is generally helpful and a nice guy, but sometimes he chews gum in your ear while looking over your shoulder at your work and its not fun...
