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!

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.

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.

Epitome of what a college professor should be. Energetic, fair, passionate about material, explains it crystal-clearly and as fast or slow as the class/material dictates. Despite being up to his head in research he STILL makes office hours available to anyone, anytime.

He teaches very clear, Homework is just about due every class, half of the test comes from exercises in the textbook and he drops at least 2 hw and the lowest test. He is always glad to help in his office

I'm a math major and I had to take this class and am so glad I did. Prof Hammack is hard, at least he expects a lot, you can't slide. He is so clear tho and the class was fun.

He is an excellent teacher who truly loves math. He is always willing to help and is very friendly. A lot of homework helps procrastinators like me to stay on top of things. I highly recommend him. He is definitely fair. He's Mr. Rogers-ish.
