Great professor. Funny, easygoing and full of energy. He explains the material very well and makes the class engaging. The exams are very fair and he always discusses what will be on them. You've still got to know your stuff but he makes it a lot easier to.

He makes the course very manageable and tells the content as it is without unnecessary proofs and such. He is also personable and a very unique, laid back personality. Sometimes the lectures can get a little boring, but they cover the content needed to succeed on the exam well.

Terence was not my favorite professor, which is unfortunate because he has such high reviews so I had high expectations. My biggest gripe with him is that he lectures so slow, painfully slow. I understand that for some it's nice to have a slower paced professor so no one gets left behind, and Terence definitely does that. However, if you did understand the material the first or second time around, the third and fourth explanations aren't needed. The slow pace of his lectures got to the point where we wound up 2-3 weeks behind Kendall Williams' 246 lectures (I know because my roommate took Kendall's section the same semester). The benefit of this is that the final exam covers much less material because you don't get to cover as much in the class. The downside of this is that I feel like I didn't actually learn anything. Terence teaches in a way where he gives you the exact steps to solve any problem so you always get the right answer. But gives zero explanation as to why those are the steps we take. So you can mindlessly solve a problem but only because you've memorized steps and in reality have no idea what you're doing (reminiscent of high school for me). Overall the class with him is an easy A but you don't actually learn. So take him if you don't care for math and just need to pass to graduate or if you want to boost your gpa. Otherwise I wouldn't recommend.

It is enough to say that Dr. Long is one of the best professors in the Math Department.

Not a bad professor, but he can be very skimpy at times and go over difficult material very quickly. MATH241 is also heavily reliant on TAs so if you get a bad one you kinda get screwed, but he's a good teacher overall.

Great Lecturer. I was in FC though so he had no TAs so took a long while to grade exams. Didn't respond to emails, and when I ask . him if he recieved something of mine he sounded like someone pretending to know what an email was. You will probably have a 5 star experience if he has a TA for your section so your exam can be graded while TLong plays Quake.

Terence is the trifecta for a great math teacher: he's enthusiastic about the material, he can explain the content in an easily digestible way, and is an overall friendly person. I highly recommend taking a class with him if you can.

Terence was an awesome teacher. He is very passionate about math and it shows while he is teaching because he always goes out of his way to show you why something works or why a formula is the way it is. His class can get a little boring at times but overall he is a pretty good math teacher who wants you to get a good grade. He is awesome about giving you opportunities to bump up low exam grades with his grading system.
