Mr. Murphy was the chillest teacher I've had here. Ever. Classes were laid back and his grading was not too difficult.Tests were very similar to the worksheets he gave us in class. Explanations were always clear, and he was always available for extra help after class. Made math interesting and fun, and always made the lectures engaging. Thanks Mr. Murphy!

He is boring, banal, and does not get his students involved. As well, he does not care if you fail. He will give you the impression that you are doing great, while you are actually failing. He is a terrible teacher.

All the negative reviews here have to do with him being dean of students. Regarding him as a teacher, he is fantastic. Best math teacher I've had at PA.

He's a great teacher. He really goes the extra mile to help students out. Love the hand outs, but he's not a fan of giving partial credit.

Mr. Murphy is one of the few teachers who genuinely cares about his students. He is the best cluster dean on campus. He makes sure to knows everyone's names, and sits with everybody on the couches and watches TV during the munches. He's a class act.

Murph has serious mood swings. Catch him on a good day, he's your best friend. Catch him on a bad day, and STAY AWAY. He's a good teacher though, and he isn't too difficult. Watch out with partial credit on tests though. He's not enormously generous.

so he doesn't make the best cluster dean ever... but whatever he's pretty cool... don't let people tell you he's wicked hard either... he's a really good teacher and his tests aren't that bad
