 Dr. Long is one of my favorite profs at Ship. I am terrible at math, but I understood everything that he taught. He is willing to help if you get behind, but that is difficult to do. He does all kinds of little in class projects, which really helps. And if you do the study guides that he gives, you should be able to get an A on all of his tests. You do need to go to class and do homework because he gives random quizzes that come straight from the assignments. He is just an all around awesome guy, and I would recommend him to anybody.

 This professor was awesome! Long made everything easy. He could make any student comprehend this material no matter how confusing calculus is to you, you will be able to get it after him. Back in high school I had a D in calculus. Taking long...a college professor who teaches calculus, my grade was good. And its not even my major. His exams are easy. he tells you the type of problems that will be on the exam. And gives you a handout.

 Dr. Long is the best teacher I have ever had in my life in college or grade school. If you respect him and show up for class you are guaranteed a B at worst. He will help you through any problems you are having in his class. And his door is always open. By far the best teacher in ship. Definitely take him if you need to get through stats. Even if you're bad at math you can still do well. He saved my ass.

 I hate math and was extremely bad at it, but with Dr. Long, he made it so easy and fun to actually learn. The homework was online and we had weekly vocab quizzes and could use our notes! If you don't pass this class, you're lazy. He is very good at what he does and makes the class fun. You do a lot of partner work and before the day of the test, at night he has a review session and the test is the same but diff. numbers. He really cared about his students and knew everyone. I highly recommend him!

 I was terrified to take college math, and I had to take Statistics but it was surprisingly easy thanks to him. I never thought I would say math was easy. As long as you show up to class and pay attention you are guaranteed a B. Do your homework and take good notes and you are guaranteed an A.

 Dr. Long is awesome! Math Liberal Studies didn't even feel like a real class. We spent a unit on The Price is Right, one on Deal or No deal, and even built a 3-D model of a house that we designed. The funny thing is that by the end of the semester, you'll actually have learned a lot.

 There's not a whole lot to say. I hate math, I suck at math, and I needed a lot of help. Luckily for me, Dr. Long is the greatest professor Shippensburg has. Hes at his office whenever you need him and hes always going to help you in anyway he can. He wants you to understand his material, so work with him. I still hate Math, but I'm very glad I took this class.

  He is a very cool professor, he makes class fun and you learn a lot and its easy to learn. He explains it that you understand. I actually enjoy math now because of him. I am going to take him later, he lets you retake the exam as many times as you want given in a certain time period to raise your grade..which really helps! Take him if you can!

 Dr. Mike is such a great person and he will always answer your questions. You probably will want to come into his office just to say hi b/c Dr. Mike is so personable. He hardly lectures, b/c you are too busy doing hands on activities. All of our hw was online and really easy, so theres no doubt that you can get 100s on all the hw. He bases his tests right off the homework as well, so you can't possibly fail his tests. Dr. Mike is probably one of the best teachers at Ship.

 Seriously... Dr. Mike is thee coolest professor I've ever had and will have here at Shippensburg University. This is my second time taking him for math because I loved him so much when I had him for Stats. He makes the material so easy to understand and if you're ever confused he's always there to help you out. His office hours are great and he's always easy to get a hold of. He makes his classes soo upbeat and fun! And before every test he holds a review session the night before which is pretty much the test straight forward. He's super funny and you will definitely not be disappointed you took him for math. You're nuts if you don't!!! He is thee best and you'll come out learning so much and actually understand it! Take him!!!

 Here is why dr. mike is the man and anyone who can should take him: first, he is a really chill prof. 2. he still tries to teach students, unlike some other sh*tbag prof's. 3. he will go out of his way to help you learn the material. 4. his tests are VERY SIMILAR to his review 'sessions' in which you learn all you need. 5. he tries to be funny, and usually is 6. most of all, class is easy, I mean if you try half assed you get a B.

 Dr. Mike is an awesome prof. His class is extremely easy if you do the homework. His hw checks are easy provided you do the work, all you have to do is transfer the problem to his sheet. He is always around if you would have a question or need help. Dr. Mike loves roller coasters so that is all you hear about with examples. I would take his class over again if I could since it was so much fun. When he gives review problems for the upcoming exam, those problems will show up on the exam...So take this prof is you can

 I have never been a "math person", but Dr Long changed that. He's so goofy, but it helps keep the class interesting--which for math, is saying a lot. He goes through the information thoroughly and is available for help 24/7, it seems. He has review sessions before exams that basically give you the answers. I would highly recommend him for anyone that needs this class.

 I really enjoyed Longs class...I usually dont like math but he made the class fun and showed how important it is to do that with kids that we will teach. His class isnt too hard as long as you do the work. Sometimes it seems confusing at first but then he explains everything and it makes sense and he is always around to answer questions.

 His is a very good teacher. Yes he does give a good amount of notes and homework problems which if done will help you get easy points on homework checks(he allows u to have the hw in front of you). And the night before an exam he has a session where he goes over the whole review packet which the test is basically the same with different numbers. I highly recommend taking him if you can!

 Dr. Mike is the most awesome professor I have had here at Ship... I withdrew from stats when I had it with Professor Cooper my first semester here (do not take Cooper... I was failing with like a 30), and then I took it with Dr. Mike and got an A.. sure it was a lot of work, but its college people, don't be so freaking lazy. It was totally worth all the work and the application that Dr. Mike explained in class... I'm in my social work research class now and am getting an A in it cause I understand what it means in context... so take Dr. Mike if you can!!! He's awesome, and funny!

 I hate math but Dr. Mike makes it enjoyable. He makes learning fun by relating math to interesting topics. He teaches the subject so clearly, and at points when I got confused, he was always there to help. His tests are cake, show up at the Review session and he practically hands you the answers. Granted, he does give you lots of homework but when you don't understand, attend his SI session once a week and he will go over any problems you have. Take him if you want to recieve an A in math. There is NO way you can fail his class!!

 First of all, I HATE MATH. I am not a math person, but this class seemed to be designed for people like me, so I was in luck. Failing a test did not mean you could fail the class. Homework checks really helped, and the quizzes were a breeze. If you are ever confused, dr. mike will take a lot of time to go over whatever you need help with. I would definitely recommend dr. mike to everyone.

 You should definitely consider taking Dr. Mike. Yes, his classes can be boring and he doesn't explain everything perfect the first time, but there are so many tests and quizzes to do well on and if you go to the review sessions before the test you are pretty much guaranteed to do well. He will help as much as he can and will re explain the information until you understand it.

 if you are looking for a good teacher take Dr. Mike. he has been the most helpful teacher ever. he has office hours but he is willing to help you whenever it is convienient for you. if you are willing to give an EFFORT then he will put in the time with you. im not the strongest math student but he makes you understand it. he actually teaches you, in class, so that is why you are writing so many notes, so you can understand it better. and the notes arent even that long. my class was 75 min and we took on ave. 2-3 pages. i mean that is reasonable. another reason is he has study sessions. how many teachers would do that for their students, this guys obviously wants you to learn. his classes arent boring too. that is probibly why i can stay awake for it. he'll get you involved with some silly but useful activities. so much to say about this wonderful teacher. and another thing i listened in class and learned, so the homework was a breeze. anyone who disagrees with me, shouldnt be in college.

 Dr. Mike is one of the best teachers I have ever had. I knew nothing of statistics and completely hated any type of math. He was new to Ship and was not on Shipunderground, so I took a huge chance when I scheduled for his class. I am so happy that I did!! This guy is excellent!! He keeps the class very entertaining, and explains everything very well. I mean I hated math, but with him as my professor it seemed so easy. The only thing you have to do to pass his class is go to it, do a little homework once a week, and go to the exam reviews! The reviews are key because they are almost exactly like the exam and he goes over all of the problems one by one. Another great thing about him is that he never makes you feel stupid. You can ask him anything you want and he will never give you the "Are you retarded?" look. He truely wants his students to do well and keeps them interested even when the material starts to suck. Excellent Professor! Take him if you can!!

 Professor Long was a very degrading teacher. Before class he had a talk with us about why we should switch majors. He constantly makes comments about how he can't believe that the education majors in the class are going to teach the youth of America. He is constantly putting students down and saying how they shouldn't be teachers. I came out of class feeling degraded, insulted, and disappointed that a TEACHER would be telling us to RUN from teaching. I am extremely passionate about teaching and I think if a student wants to teach they should be motivated by their professors to do so. Especially for teaching an Education Math course he should be trying to help us in our future teaching placements; however, he is trying to stop us. If you are an education major I would NOT advise you to take him for a teacher. There are several other teachers that are effective and motivating. Do not take this professor.

 Dr. Long is a nice guy, []but when it comes to teaching you better be the kind of kid that can listen attentively and take great notes from the beginning of class to the very end. He teaches things very fast and will give you TONS of homework, probably the most homework youve ever gotten in ur life. And then if you get too lazy to do the homework youre screwed because he gives out homework checks and asks you to do random numbers on your homework. Its just like a big game. And every class he goes past by like 5 or more minutes, he just straight lectures the whole time. Granted hes not monitone or boring, but its just straight notes the whole class, then 3 hours worth of homework. Its just frustrating. If youre kind of lazy like me and do not like doing a lot of homework, u better get someone else.
