He's great! Its not hard to get an A if you don't slack off. Yeah sometimes it gets boring or what not but if you really pay attention and put in the effort he'll give you an A. He also has these quizzes after every test to raise test scores because tests are a good portion of the grade. If math isnt you forte he's ur man.

Even though his teaching style is somewhat "old school", Professor Burke will go out of his way to help each student do well; he makes review sheets, homework reviews, test reviews etc. you name it. He is extremely generous with grading. It does get a little boring but it's definitely doable.

The grading is very fair and professor Burke is very nice! Material is not new at all,so if you have kept up the math knowledge in college level, you will not have a problem in getting a A.

He is a great professor, you just have to listen in class and do the hw. He gives mastery quizzes (optional) after a test so that you can improve your grade. He gives you review examples before he test. Group assignments are given after every test and he assigns group moderators. They are the ones with the highest grades in the group.

Great Teacher! He explains everything really clearly and actually spends time to learning all of his students' names. He assigns a lot of homework problems, but some appear exactly the same on the test. No surprises on his tests!!! I definatly recommend taking his class

This class in no easy A for sure, but he makes something as annoying as calculus very very approachable. He explains everything as clearly as possible, and he really wants you to understand the concepts. Always has so much patience and is extremely respectful of everyone. He's great!

Well, he is one of my fave math teachers. He is my only fave male math teacher. Wears glasses, is organized, fair, kind. Mature in that he does not gossip, tell jokes, make fun, etc. Everyone treated with respect, even notices when some people have been absent for awhile, like he really cares. Fits in a lot of people, and makes groups for easiness.

Prof Burke's got a knack for making difficult problems seem easy, he's organized and fair. Tests are JUST like the study problems assigned, except w/ different numbers. So if you do the hw and study a little, you'll do fine. Although he does assign a lot of hw, you get a MUCH better understanding of the problems. Take his class!

Not a very hard class if you do all the homeworks he assigns and study from that. His exams are exactly like the homework. Fair in grading. Easy to understand. Uses visual aids to help clarify difficult topics.

He is a godsend for math deficient people like me! He explains well, helps you tremendously. He expects you to work HARD - I recommend NOT missing class, as he sticks to the syllabus. Tests are fair. He talked ME out of withdrawing, and I actually passed.

The class I am taking now is Calculus, but since he's been teaching for so many years and at a high-school level, I would recommend you select him. He explains well and calls on your name for participation. Knows how to get to the bottom of problems, and since this is math, his skill fits perfectly.

Now this guy is a really good professor! He is strict. He wants you to learn. But... he will teach you properly. Very helpful. This is the type of teacher who really knows how to teach and does what he does very well. Don't think he is a push-over though. He is not. If you do not work hard... Fair!
