Best prof I've had at UW (in addition to an awesome course!). He's an amazing story teller, so lectures were fun and interesting to go to, and he's easy to approach. Learned a lot from my assignments and the big essay I wrote. The math on assignments can be tough, but overall Steve was AWESOME and would definitely take another course with him!

Comment:
He is amazing. He does a history of math portion to his lectures and tries to get you to connect with your mathematical ancestors. He also has a world view and talks about things that are not math specific. His classes force you to think and question what you know of math and the world. I would take a course just to have him as a professor.

Comment:
One of the few professors I actually remember and I still consider a mentor. He shaped my view of mathematics and it is a shame that I got to know his approach closer to the end of my time at UW. He went out of his way to help me out and I am grateful for his assistance. I ended up graduating from a MMath because of his help in CO 350.

Fantastic lecturer and incredibly helpful. He's crystal clear, rigorous, and knows the material forwards and backwards. My fortunes changed when I retook this course with Furino.

Absolutely awesome! The only reason why the people think of his course as hard is because there's a lot of new, interesting stuff most people haven't seen before. He wants the best for his students and that's shown when he is not sympathetic about people's marks but wants them to earn their marks.

Amazing Prof! Extremely cooperative, very knowledgeable, dead honest. Has a memory only a computer can compete with. University of Waterloo needs many more like him. Was very helpful in giving me an academic reference letter for my graduate studies. Go to his lectures and you can't help but fall in love with him and his teaching style.

The things he teaches in class are not very clear sometimes. He just ask you to memorize the fact.
