I don't know... I really like Mr. Farley as a person, and I like how he's there very, very early in the morning. But the lectures can be boring, but maybe I just don't enjoy math as much as I used to (especially not that I'm in multivariable calc like??? ew)...

Such a great teacher. First impression of him was some grumpy old math teacher but he cracks the funniest jokes and is so smart, he just makes for one of the greatest teachers. Favorite teacher of junior year, easily!

I switched my teacher from gesk to farley for precalc. Farley had his lessons all planned out and really uses every bit of time wisely. He calls on random people to answer problems and answers really nicely until you get it. P.S he wakes up really ea

Calc was harder than Stat-must pay attention in class or be innately good at math. Teaches hard subjects is clear and always helpful - but grading is hard. (85% test) Cool teacher.
