Math 150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A

I hated calculus before this course because my previous teachers didn't teach. Churchill actually explains everything properly and thoroughly. You can tell he has a strong passion for math because occasionally he gets excited about the topics and rambles but those moments only help clarify the problems you're doing. Highly recommend him.

Professor Churchill is the best mathematics professor i have ever had. You will be doing yourself a favor if you take his course and are interested in understanding mathematics on a deeper, theoretical level.

MATH 260 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Churchill connects with the students and constantly engages with his students. He always gives an opperunity for student to ask question, so take advantage of it, if you are lost. He is also much easier to understand if you go to his office hours. You need a strong will and not be scared off before the midterm. Everything is easier afterward.

Ok so churchill is a great professor. Although his book for linear algebra is TERRIBLE. The text is not for first semester linear algebra students. For some reason he likes it.Do your homework. and to do well on tests study his notes, homework, and the textbook. You can get a C alone on tests just by memorizing proofs and definitions.

this linear algebra class was very hard. the most difficult in my entire college career but was worth it. Churchill is very knowledgeable and a great professor. he grades his tests in a way that it is hard to fail. just memorize the proofs and the definitions and you are guaranteed a 70 on the test. test based on do not hand in and homeworks

He's a great professor who knows what he is talking about. Just do the "do not hand in problems" and the hand in problems and you will do great on the exams which are curved. Some of the problems on exams come straight from the homework.

He is the best math teacher I've had so far. He uses the first half of the class to answer questions and actually go over homework problems, unlike most professors, then uses the other half to lecture. Homework and tests are always graded and handed back the next class, and tests are always curved; he's really fair.

You should be so lucky to have a teacher like Churchill in the math department of a college like Hunter. This man is the real deal. People that think his classes are tough do *not* enjoy mathematics. Churchill FTW.

This class was easy if you were familiar with the basic premise of calculus. And a great review if you already took calculus 2. He also brings in many interesting topics. HW counts and he takes many of the problems straight out of the HW. He is also very helpful durring class and in the office. He goes through material quickly.

Interesting guy. He's pretty nice, but I personally had a difficult time trying to understand the way he approached the material. Had an off-handed way of teaching. Gave a lot of problems to work on, but unless you understand whats going on, you can easily fall behind. Especially in a class such as Calc 2.
