Quarter: N/A
Grade: N/A
Oct. 16, 2014

Professor Cumming really cares about his students. I took PHILOS 133 with him last spring quarter. Very patient in explaining things. Very accessible during office hours. The course itself is not very hard. He makes it clear what would be tested during the exam. Small class. very easy to get help from fellow classmates.

Overall, highly recommend it if you are interested in logic and math.

PS, he is from Australia, the accent...

Prof. Cumming is a really solid professor. This class was a really small class, and we had great discussions with him over the quarter. He did a good job of explaining his approach to symbolizing and brought up interesting side topics, that although were not part of the course, were relevant. I had him for 127A as well, and the concern he has for his students is clear. Because of a weird scheduling conflict that interfered with some class time he set up an additional class for us all to meet. He is very knowledgeable concerning the fields of linguists, philosophy of language and even some set theory, which makes him quite able to explain things with full understanding. He will only get better with time.
