MTH 163 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Jamie Foo is a difficult teacher. She has a heavy accent, so don't take her if you need things explained clearly. She also relies too heavily on MyMathLab to teach concepts. I would advise against taking her if you have difficulties in math.

MTH 166 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A+

She is a great professor, very helpful, the class consists of 5 tests and one retake exam. She also replaces the final with one of the tests. Highly recommend. It's not recommended for lazy people.

MATH 152 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: C

OH MY GOODNESS! Great teacher! BUT you will get a low grade if you don’t take the work seriously. She cares about the student and is always glad to help. BUT do the homework, repeat the work again if you’re unsure and do your part to get a good grade. She does give you tips for the exams BUT STUDY DAYS BEFORE the exam. I enjoyed the class.

MTH 152 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

If you are not strong in math, I would not recommend you take her. I have a hard time with math myself, even though I passed all 9 units of the placement test. In the beginning, she was an excellent teacher, but after the midterms she chose to resort to opening the textbook and telling us what was there, instead of teaching us. Funny professor.

MTH 166 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: C

Prof. Foo surprised me with her dry sense of humor! Listen to her, though. When she tells you that the class is difficult and fast-paced, she's not kidding! She bent over backwards to give us all better grades, but it's still pretty easy to fall behind. She's very nice and knew all out names after a week. We were like 40.

mth166 is not easy but she made it understandable, very helpful if you need extra help! previews each question on each exam before you take them, should be an easy 'A' as long as you do HW. easy extra credit points for 'trying' questions on board. funny and good at teaching. she knows what she is teaching. prepares you for MTH173.

MATH 166 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I'm pretty bad at math but she did a good job teaching. was very visual with many many examples. She is super fair when grading, she'll replace a bad test with a quiz if you did well on the quiz and will replace another bad test with the final exam if you did well on that too. extra credit is available and useful for people terrible at math.

Easy class, five tests, she gives study guide that shows exactly what will be on the test. Let you re-do one of the test. Don't really need to buy book, cause you can use the online book when you buy the account for mymathlab.

Attendance mandatory if in the end you want extra 10 points. Thorough on what she is looking for and very nit picky on how you put your answers. She engages well with students if anyone needs help. I was struggling in class but managed to pull of with a C! Loved her class and how she made it fun. Definitely recommend her :)

mth163 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I'm not very good in math at all but Prof.Foo made it so much easier. She gives her student alot of chances to make up for bad grades. If you try hard enough and go to her office hours if you need help you will for sure pass her class.

mth152 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She is a very nice person but if math isn't your strength I don't advise you to take her class. She has a very thick accent, she works extremely fast, and has trouble explaining certain areas of the course.

MTH163 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

If you are someone good at math, this is the perfect teacher to have. I enrolled in this class and did not use a textbook and got an A. Homework is mandatory and if not done you cant take the chapter test. Overall I learned a lot as a refresher from my high school class. She's a really good teacher, and you will learn if you attend and listen.

She knows what she's talking about, but unfortunately she's a terrible teacher. She has a really hard time conveying ideas in math, and honestly seems lost in translation. It's a shame, she seems really nice though.

This is a very fast paced course. She will warn you at the beginning of the semester. She basically very sticked on her syllabus. Just go to the class, do the homework, and ask questions during the class or her office hours; you will be fine.

She is the best pro. She seems hard but at the end you will get A or B. 4 exams and 1 final, but you have a chance to retake any lowest exam at the end of semester. I failed all 4 exams but get B. My advice, come to class everyday (55pts), do all HW 40pts so u get lots point bonus at the end. she always give sample Q b4 exam. Take with her for A.

Her tests are just like the homework. She will give you a study guide that is exactly what is on the test. If you are not good at math and you need extra help, I would not take her. If you are good at math a you can keep up well, then it is an easy A

She is a great lady but can't explain anything if you ask her a question..Avoid her if you can.
