 Professor Morton is great. He is very cut and dry, easy to understand. He will go out of his way for students helping them to understand problems if they have questions. He is not only very fair in his grading, but he has also re-opened online homework when students have had issues with the site. If you struggle in math or want an easy to understand professor, he is your guy.

 Professor Morton is a really great teacher. His class is easy as long as you attend every class, pay attention, and do the homework! He tries really hard to make you understand what hes teaching you. TAKE HIS CLASS!

 Dr. Morton's class wasn't a breeze and I only received a C, but he might be one of the most helpful professors that I have seen in Ship. His class is tough just for the fact that it is calc unless you're good at that. He gives out an online homework grade. He will have in-class and take home quizzes that help you out. He tells you what is going to be on the final. If you are having trouble in his class go to the student center or go to him. He loves to help and is always available. He is a nice prof and helped me get through class. If you're not a calculus stud take Dr. Morton to learn the material and for a better GPA.

 I'm the worst person in the world at Math. I switched into Dr. Morton's class because I was in Finite for a day and was completely overwhelmed. Dr. Morton met me in his office and took time to explain the class to me. He's patient and will answer any question during class, and he's always in his office. He drops your lowest quiz grade and gives you plenty of help on the test. He'll tell you exactly what to study and go over it 100 times if you need it. Yes, there are a lot of quizzes, but not many tests, and there's alays help. He's going somewhere else next semester, but if he comes back, I definetely recommend him!

 He was a GREAT teacher, very easy to understand the material. I would have gotten a better grade but I skipped too often. If you go to class it is SO easy to get an A. His quizzes are take home, and the quizzes you do have in class he goes over the material heavily before the quiz...Take him hes great!

 I have Professor Morton for Applied Calculus right now. Generally, his class isn't too hard as long as you attend frequently. He regularly assigns and collects homework, which really isn't bad because it's a nice grade booster. He always reviews the homework in class to make sure everyone understands the material and then hands out notes on the new stuff. Frequent quizzes are given every one-two weeks or so, covering roughly 2-3 sections at a time. He doesn't test on more than one chapter at a time, and gives partial credit as long as you show work. Overall, the class isn't too bad if you pay attention and keep up with the homework. I'd recommend him for people that have trouble with math, since he is around should you have questions.

 Prof. Morton is a good guy. He tries to be your friend, answers the questions that you have, gives take home quizzes a lot, and is understanding of excuses. Make sure you go to class, because he generally knows your name even if you don't think he does and he knows whether or not you are there. The tests might require some studying, I didn't think they were that difficult though. They were pretty standard for a basic level math class. Also, if you have a 95 or above, you don't have to take the final... which is awesome!

 Real easy teacher, sometimes it seems hes teaching himself on the board, and then teaches the class. Tests and quizzes are all cake, the class was easy

 Yeah Prof. Morton can get a little edgy at times, but he is the kind of prof that you just have to laugh at. he is such a math nerd, who is willing to help anyone. he tries really hard to be funny, which is hillarious! He may freak out at times, i think he has a really big thing with people talking AT ALL when he is talking. GO TO EVERY CLASS & you will have a great grade. his exams are some take home, some group, there are no set huge exams, and the final is open note.

Subject: RIDICULOUS  (Nov 01 2010, 08:08AM)

 His class is extremely easy but he is ridiculous. He talks to everyone like they are stupid, and when he teaches the class he acts like he doesn't know how to do the problem so you as a student have to help him. Very easy A. The thing he does though is singles people out. Even when you are not doing anything wrong he finds a way to get on you about something. One thing you never want to do is leave the class early. Even if you are done with the in class work for the day, stay seated until he says you can go. If not he will get upset and find some smartalic response to say to you. But if you get get passes his ridiculous ways feel free to class the class because it is very easy.

 If you're looking for a teacher to bore you to death and stand at the front of the room and do 40 problems on the board without really teaching, then Morton is the teacher to take. If you care about your grades stay away from his class.

 Prof. Morton is a good teacher with an easy class. He really tries to explain the content so that you understand it. The only problem is he's like Jekyl & Hyde. One minute he's nice the next he blows up in your face. He told us one day in class he has Schitzophrenia. I believe it, I thought it was obseessive compulsive disorder though... he constantly repeats himself, and writes things on the board only to erase & rewrite it like five times. He takes half an hour to write things on the board because if it's not perfect he erases and rewrites it. He flipped out on quite a few ppl in my class because they laughed, not at him, they just laughed. He told a girl in my class she'll make a terrible teacher & she didn't do anything. He's a crazy man but his class is worth taking, if you can put up ith him.

  As someone posted earlier he is really like jekyl and hyde with everything he does. One day he will grade easy and the next get picky on every single little thing on the homework. He got mad at one of the tables in the class because when they finish they started talking softly so they got half credit on the work....if you can put up with the jekyl and hyde days he is not half bad of a professor for fund math...just never ever get on his bad side.

 He seems like a good guy, but hes a bit of a cornball I think. This class is way easy. Something to beware of. Always do the homework-he collects it and gives a good chunk of points for it. The quizzes are weekly and for the most part easy. Make sure to label the answers. He took off a total of 7 points for not labeling my answers even though they were correct. The hardest part of this class is staying awake through the whole thing.

 I knew I was in trouble on the very first day when he COMMANDED that everyone remove their hats when they were in his classroom. Really, this prof is an ok guy, as long as you don't push his buttons. Two guys were talking really quietly amongst themselves in his class and started laughing softly, and Dr. Morton just blew up at them. Other than these previous examples, he's a pretty nice guy that will fall all over himself to help you understand the math you're working on. You will have to attend each and every class, and he often gives minor quizzes, and if you miss too many of them they really add up. To bottom line it; don't cry if you have to take this prof, but I'd recommend finding a different one who isn't so tempermental and anal-retentive.
