"Tough Grader"

Professor Hammack is very organized and explains things methodically. He is a serious teacher and mathematician, so if you're looking for a fun class, this is probably not it.

MATH307 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: C+

One of the best educators I've had in my college career. Dr. Hammack is extremely clear, well organized, and lays the entire course out for you, including his expectations. Attend his class and you'll pass. I struggled with the material immensely, but he was in his office all the time to answer questions!

MATH 504 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Hammack is very passionate about math and teaching. However, Math 504 is a tough class, especially for math education students who do not intend on taking higher levels of math classes. Hammack grades hw for accuracy, which makes it hard to keep your grade up. And all of the test are challenging with proofs! Tried my hardest & only got a C.

Math 200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

The best math professor I've ever had. He's extremely clear in his explanations of things and is very helpful in answering questions. He's also really nice, don't be afraid to approach him with questions. Calc can be hard, but if you dont do well in his class it's your fault. He may be the best math professor at VCU.

Professor Hammack is amazing. His course was challenging, but he was always willing to offer up his time to help. Working practice problems is essential. There was a weekly quiz and homework problems due twice a week.

Professor Hammack is an amazing instructor. He is passionate and genuinely cares whether you do well or not. His quiz questions are generally fairly similar to the homework and he is a fair grader. If you do the practice problems you will do fine.
