STAT 1000 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A
"Assignments galore" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Participation matters"

Constantly repeats herself but I couldn't actually follow her, had to teach myself the material. iClicker participation required, but it's nice that if you get more than 75% of them right, you get 100%. Her slides are neat but when she writes on the projector, very messy. Many online assignments. Do yourself a favor and get the Grant's textbooks.

"Would take again" "Skip class? You won't pass." "There for you"

Dr. Mateo was great! I did find the lectures to be a bit long because she often repeats herself, but she said she does it for the students who have trouble catching on. Only problem I had with the course was that the department messed up my last name and room assignment for exams but Dr. Mateo took care of it herself! Really cares. Office hours!

STATS 1000 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

STATS 1000 is a little more advanced than Applied Math but this prof makes it harder than it needs to be. She is slow, you can't understand her and after a while you have to teach yourself. The exams are worth a huge portion of your grade and by learning nothing all term it results in a poor final grade.

I took STATS 2000 online last year and failed. I took stat 2000 with this prof in summer (3.5 week course) and was really worried because of how fast this course is. This Prof really made everything clear and I actually understood what I was being taught! I am happy with my marks I have received so far thanks to this prof. Recommended!

She makes everything very clear if you actually go to class. Iclicker questions are challenging but not hard. Tells you what kind of questions that you should expect on tests.

Stat 1000 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Probably the worst prof I have had for any subject ended up spending my time in the stat lab instead of her class because she was unable to teach me anything

STAT 1000 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She was nice when you talked to her one on one but her teaching was horrible. I couldn't understand anything she said and she assumed that the majority of course material was already known. I (as well as many of my friends in the class) had to self teach ourselves. We ended up with very low grades.

Good prof. Don't bother getting the actual textbook she doesn't use it at all. Her notes are fantastic. She explains things very well! She does have an accent but she speaks very clearly. iClicker questions weren't too hard she walks you through them beforehand. Funny in class. I would recommend her.

She is always helping a lot students who need help. She is a very professional teacher. She is really very helpful to explain things which are not clear to me. Her clicker questions are really helpful.

She is very helpful to students. She will really give all her time to teach you until you understand. But be sure you need to go to her Office hour. Her class is alive and she is sometimes funny.

She is a decent professor. She wants everyone to be successful after taking her course. She teaches clear and very lively in class. And most of all she is a very approachable prof inside and outside the classroom. I would like to recommend her as as a Prof.

Everyone complains about this professor. Yes, she has an accent, but you can understand everything she says. This class is not an easy credit, you need to work at it. Do not rely on the professors notes, make your own and practice the material! The grades you receive are not to blame on the professor. If you study hard, you will do great!

She is a good professor! Everyone complains about her accent, but you get used to it. She is funny and makes class enjoyable. There are a lot of iclicker questions but they help test your understanding of the knowledge. Her notes aren't the best, so i'd recommend buying grants tutoring. This class is easy if you put the effort into studying! :)

Retoke this course to get a better mark and ended up with a crap teacher. You can't understand her through her accent at all and she assumes you know all of the statistician lingo (but we dont) and continues using them without really explaining anything. Find a different teacher! Dont get stuck with her!

ALTHOUGH SHE IS KIND ALL THE TIME, SHE DOE NOT REALLY SOLVE ANY PROBLEM...ONLY PREVARICATE...WHEN SOMEONE ASKS WHY, SHE ONLY KNOWS SAYING "OH THAT IS A GOOD QUESTION AND YOU SHOULD BE CAREFUL" HER STRONG ACCENT MAKES THE CLASS INCOMPREHENSIBLE...AND USUALLY SPEND 10MIN COMPLAINING ABOUT HER STUPID STUDENTS

She is extremely helpful outside of class and is very, very prompt with emails. She often will go above and beyond if you have questions regarding the assignments. Most of the frustrations I had were due to the department of statistics' lack of organization and had nothing to do with her. Her accent isn't a problem. Overall a good prof.
