Comment:
If you have another choice, choose to take this with another professor. He tries to help but isn't very clear with how he teaches. His class is very hard even for students who do pretty well in math. If you struggle with math, take another professor. Don't sacrifice your GPA.

Comment:
If you struggle in math you may want to look into another professor. I am strong in math and struggled at first. You do have to know his definitions word for word. He deducts points for every little thing which adds up. It gets easier and he does try to make up for it with grading in the end.

Comment:
Math is not my best subject so taking this course was very difficult for me because the material is just not that easy to grasp to begin with. I'm not going to bash Sims but I will say that if you aren't that good in math and you have a choice, you may want to take this with another professor. He isn't always very clear with teaching this material

Comment:
Worst teacher ever. He was nice and enthusiastic, but he does nothing to help his students. I had the flu and he wouldn't let me take the exam the following week during one of his other classes or something like that. I went to class EVERY day and took VERY EXTENSIVE notes. I have never done so poor in a math class, I got a C.

Comment:
I was excited at first to take him because he was super enthusiastic. However, if you don't have his definitions memorized WORD FOR WORD, he counts off. I have always made A's and B's in math, but I think I might actually get a C. His tests are hard and you don't have enough time for the amount of problems he puts on the quizzes. He is helpful tho.

I don't understand why Coach Sims doesn't have a higher rating because he is a great professor!He makes math very easy to understand and gives you plenty of opportunities to make a good grade in his class!

I've never gotten anything below an A in math since I started college 3 years ago. Nice guy, but not a good math teacher at all. Retook this class with a different professor this semester and I got an A.

Come to class, take notes, you will do fine. I am in his class for about another 3 weeks and currently have an A. He doesn't use the text so do not buy the book!! He's a nice guy and is funny.

Sims is a really nice guy and he likes to make jokes throughout the class to make the material a little more interesting, however he doesn't use a book and goes by his own notes. I don't really understand what this class has to do with education and being a teacher but some of the concepts were interesting.

Comment:
The material covered has no relevance to education. Campus Tutors unable to explain his material. Students told that "his" method was the "only" way and that all other math instructors were teaching material wrong. Concerned for students wasting money on poor instruction and becoming frustrated.

Great teacher, I enjoyed his class. He won't tell you this until right before the final, but if you are happy with your average from the first 3 test than you can exempt the final!!!! He is also really nice.

This is definitely a crazy class, but I ended up understanding concepts and learning alot about math! I like Coach Sims and am taking him again for 3317.

Comment:
All these comments about what a great teacher he is - NOT! He is not the moon and the stars when it comes to knowledge. Purpose of 3315 - learn how to teach. I can't say that he modeled anything useful and there isn't much I can take and use in my classroom. I've had better teachers that know as much as he knows. Don't take this guy!

Comment:
This was the weirdest math class I have ever taken. He teaches his own little "sim's method" throughout, so be careful. I had D's throughout on tests, I went to talk to him and took the final, and somehow got an A. I wouldn't take a chance with another one of his classes, but at least he's really nice.

If you study what he gives in notes, you will do fine. I have never made an A in a math class in my life, but I did in his class.

It is possible to get a good grade in this class if you study like 5 hours a day. Hes makes things more complicated then they need to be and he makes really bad jokes.

Comment:
He has been the most amazing professor I have had at KSU. He forces you to think outside the box. If you are a conceptual learner, take this class! He teaches you the basics of math and hows and whys. You really realize how much you didn't learn when you were in elementary school. He has a cooky sense of humor but he is awesome!

If your not good at math then dont take him. Find someone that can explain the math to you. he also makes these really stupid jokes.
