MTH211 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're good at math, it's tolerable. If not, good luck! She flies through the material expecting you to know the toughest problems with a snap of a finger. Gives out quizzes religiously; even if she just taught the new material a class before and given a test the class before that. Don't expect any gimmick problems on quizzes and tests either.

She has a thick accent and hard to understand. Well give you attitude if your late and will not hesitate to show it. Very talkative and will keep going unless someone stops her.

Math211 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This professor is very good. She has an accent but is easily understood. She lectures using a projector making it easy to see her notes. Her quizzes & exams match the homework & online exercises. She posts online review exercises that simplify exam prep. She is a nice person & does a great job of making a difficult subject almost pleasant.

Math211 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Her accent is pretty funny. She is a great teacher though. She will write out the notes for you and slows down if you ask. Our class did really bad on a quiz and she let us have them back and redo them so we all go 100%! Has labs to prepare for the test which are almost exactly like the test. Don't even need to do the homework just go to class.

MATH211 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Panayotova knows the material and will give it to you at 120 words per minute so have a pencil handy and extra paper, preferably unlined.

CalcMATH Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She is clear and straight to the point. I have had much difficulty with mathematics in my previous years, but now I can comprehend complex concepts with simple solutions. She makes the material easy to understand while also requiring us to think outside of the box and extremely helpful if you still don't understand.

MATH307 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

An excellent teacher! Take her for any class you can, her teaching is crystal clear and she is always happy to help you out. I took Diff Eq with her and used the book a lot for hw (she teaches straight out of the book), so you have to do some work on your own too. Final = cake, tests and quizzes = cake. attendance not mandatory but beneficial

She is very helpful if you ask her for it and the labs she assigns are very similar to tests, do the homework and you should have no problem in this class

Math211 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Very difficult to understand with her thick accent, but over time you begin to understand what she is saying. Gives a lot of homework which if you have time to do it will help you on the test.

I definitely recommend this professor. Even though she had an accent, her lectures were easy to understand. She is a fair, but sometimes easy grader. Doing the assigned hw will help your test performance.

MTH307 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

A good professor. Helpful and flexible. Quizzes are straight off of homework problems. Tests are fair, not brutal (unlike a previous calc teacher). She teaches directly out of the book, so bring it to save some writing, she writes fast!

Math307 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She is a pretty good professor. She is extremely clear,even though she has an accent. 10 quizzes and drops lowest two, quizzes are homework problems, sample tests. If you did well in calculus she should be no problem. She writes very quickly if you ever miss a class just read the book.
