Comment:
Dr. Hamdan is a wonderful professor who genuinely cares about his students. My class with him was hybrid, it was at times hard to understand him on zoom. But that is def. not what defines him. His in-person lectures were some of the best lectures I've ever had in a math class. He genuinely cares for his students. I cannot recommend his class enough

Comment:
He's a great professor, but a little slow over zoom. It's a pretty easy class if you pay attention. The worst part of the class is that he assigns group projects and, if you end up with a bad group, it'll be a headache to deal with. Overall, he's an amazing teacher who loves what he teaches.

Hassans math 229 class is difficult because of how much work it is. However, he really cares about his students and he will always answer your questions and help you get the homework and quizzes right. He is one of the best professors I have had and I would highly recommend taking him. Just put in the work and you will do great.

Great guy that cant know any less about how to run a class. The class was disorganized, unclear, and full of work that we didnt know how to do; I could go on and on. Its obvious that he is a smart man, but be prepared for constant frustration if you get him. Easily the worst class I have ever taken. Avoid his class like the plague.

He's very kind and understanding. I wish he taught 329. I thank him for his humor because he never fails to put a smile on my face. The class is a lot of work though, but worth the experience.

Prof Hamdan is truly a good person and he's very nice, but he is not the kind of person I want to teach me math of all things. He words things weirdly making it hard to understand, and he isn't very engaging. I basically teach myself from the textbook. He also isn't accessible and never answers emails, and his canvas is unorganized.

Took him online for 220, not bad at all. You have to complete a lot of "certifications" kinda like homework, but easy if you stay on top of the schedule. Discussion questions but only takes 20ish minutes to do. Group SPSS projects as well. Gave study guide for mid term. He is very accommodating with any issues you have. Highly recommend!

Since this class was online, it was most obviously hard to understand the content sometimes. However, professor Hamdam gave so many opportunities for us to succeed. There were only two tests (the midterm and the final) and he let us retake the midterm with notes, and gave us the final ahead of time. Just do the modules and you will pass!

Worst math class I have ever taken. He was the opposite of a help. Formula sheets don't provide all the information needed for the tests. When you ask questions he gives you wrong answers. Lost one of my group projects until I showed him that I submitted it. So unorganized and terrible when you come to him with questions.

Professor Hamdan does not want to assist in learning if you ask him a question he'll just refer you to the learning center. He listed three different locations and times for the midterm. Keep up with the HLS there's a lot before the midterm.

Really great guy who also has funny, different, sense of humor. Has a bit of a thick accent but you will get used to it. However, he speed teaches so if you have taken algebra before you will be fine but otherwise the class itself can be difficult and easy to get lost in. HW online and attendance thru an online code.

Comment:
Dr. Hamdan was a good professor. He only gives out 2 tests with corrections after and the final and you get a list of formulas. He often does not understand what students are asking so he does not answer your questions but the online textbook and practice problems is a huge help so use that. He gives online quizzes but 2 are dropped. Take him!

Hamdan is all over the place in his lectures. He is very caring and he wants his students to succeed. He has only two tests throughout the semester but he does offer test corrections.

I enjoyed Dr. Hamdan's class. He understands that not everyone likes/ is good at math so he tries to make it entertaining. He tries to make sure everyone does well and is very understanding. The online math program that we used for quizzes and test was terrible though, so if you aren't a math person, this class might not be for you

He was funny even when he didn't mean to be. His math jokes are super corny but brake up the math material. The only work sucks but is bearable. He will help you if needed. Really great with making sure everyone understands what is going on.

I had him in an 70 person class and HE WILL learn every name in the class. If you hate being called out in class then he is NOT the professor for you. Takes attendance 95% of the time. Homework and quizzes (at home) are through connectMath. He has a tendency of doing problems in a hard way, the textbook shows easier explanations so read it.

Dr. Hamdan is a great guy, like the kind of guy you'd want as a neighbor. However, I don't want my neighbor teaching me calculus. In addition, he expected us to know more from Calc I than we did. Also, on each test there was at least one problem we had never covered how to do. He's not very calculus minded, but I might take him again for Stats.

Comment:
He is THE WORST professor. He does not know calculus enough to be able to teach it in a way we would understand. The whole class is confused 90% of the time. The tests are very hard, but he will give a small curve. Also he gives very few practice problems to review. I don't know why JMU let him teach this class.
