Comment:
I first met Prof. Ganong back in 1990. I had him for Calculus and Algebra. Math is a language period!... Grammar/spelling so important ... He taught me how to appreciate mathematics... Some day you will understand... He's freaking awesome. Maybe a little rough around the edges but teaches more than just the math... Thank you Professor.

HORRIBLE. Had him twice, and it only got worse! He tests us on grammar and proofs...learned absolutely NO calculus in the two classes I had with him. I beg you...please try to avoid him at all costs!

Comment:
Worst professor i've had in my 2 years at York. He doesn't teach, he rants. His teaching style is horrid and isn't clear at all. All he wants is people to memorize stuff to the tee. And yet the course has the word APPLICATIONS in it... not a math course that should be taught by him.

Worst professor ever! We need to get this guy fired. Worst sc*m there is. I cannot believe York is supporting this guy. The math department needs an overhaul as they are incompetent for letting this guy teach.

Comment:
This is by far the worst prof I've ever had. He makes fun of the entire York community and simply has no passion for teaching. He's also a stickler about grammar even though he's a math professor, and you have to jump through hoops of grammar corrections if you need a question answered via email. Stay away.

More of a grammar class than an actual math class, doesn't explain concepts really well instead focuses on complicated and (usually) useless proofs. Very last minute. Thank goodness he bell curves.

Worst prof i've ever met. 'His' versions of definitions really sucks. Expecting you to learn english (his style) rather than math. Avoid him is the best solution

Its hard to believe this is a math class because it seems like all your marks come from grammar. Not correct grammar, but punctuated grammar. And you're good at memorizing his exact sentences if you want marks!

Avoid him if you can! I was scared to take his class because of everything I read here, but I did anyways because other options didn't fit into my schedule. I absolutely regret it. I should have taken it in the next semester.

Memorize HIS definitions not the book's or anybody else's. Word for word, and grammar. Do this and you will get free marks on his tests. I had him for 1019 and did fairly well but 1090 is no walk in the park. He will curve his tests based on the class average.

Well he's a really nice guy and tries a lot to be funny. He really knows his stuff but also expects you to know it all too. He only asks for proofs and definitions and if you think that's easy, it isn't. he deducts marks for punctuation and grammar. Tests are hard but he skews marks after; thats how i passed

Very confusing prof! Jumps around topics and spends too much time on simple concepts. Tests are very hard and he deducts marks for spelling, grammar, and not dotting your i's. Nice guy, quite funny, but as a prof not very good at all. Was so confused the entire time I was in his class and ended up dropping out of it.

Fact:Very useless book,Very Hard Prof,A bad teacher.He is a good person and will help you but does not explains the concepts.Looks confused all the time and is not assertive.I would not suggest you to take this course with him but if you are stuck read the text ,solve all the problems in text and class and seek TA's help. Stick to HIS rules.

Comment:
Worst prof I have ever dealt it. Will make you HATE math. Almost all his students fail his tests and he is somehow proud of that. He has already got in trouble with the department for his horrendous teaching style. Doesn't use the book at all and thinks everyone in the class is stupid. Expects his students to have PHDs in order to do well. AVOID!!!
