Thankful for teachers like Kiernan. She does not hand out A's, but will do everything in her power to help you pass. She will stay after class, to assist with questions. Homework is on MYMATHLAB.COM....which is not my fav, but getting the hang of it now. Overall, if I had to take College Alg again I would want to be in her class. She is awesome.

STA2023 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Reads from Power-points every class, Takes attendance dropped if >3 classes missed. Horrible text, she tries to help but it's her 1st time teaching STATS. She skips steps then when we get further & need those steps she says we should have done this or I don't know what happened.

this teacher is the WORST ever. everything is on slide show angle (with are very blury on the projection screen) or my mathlab besides tests that are taken in class. she is not clear with what she isi teaching and she makes lots of mistakes that confuse you. i LOVE math but she has made me think twice. shes so boring its sickening. i hope i pass.

If you wanna pass, take her. If you fail, that's your fault. Gives credits on homework and practice test. She wants u to try before she writes all the answers on the board. Actual questions on exams are 90% close to the pretest. Allows note cards during exam. Ask any question via email or in person. Calculus is not easy. Worked hard on my "A".

You wanna know how you now you havent paid attention, when she "basically" gives you the test b4 the test and you still cant pass. She clearly goes over everything and is always at the board. She starts every class asking if you have questions. Excellent teacher focused and knowledgable you just have to put in the effort as in any class!

Nice lady, but awful at teaching. All her lessons are on powerpoints, all her homework is online, she never writes on the board, and we never used the book.

If you are looking for an excellent math teacher Kiernan is the one you are looking for. She is a far cry from the first comment. She is very helpful even on her time off she is availuable to tutor.Second math class with her and I have yet to miss an answer on the test. She has multiple angles of approach. She is organized and easy to follow.

This was one of the best teachers I have ever had. She had some problems at first because it was the first time teaching the lesson plan. She did everything we asked, and even threw out the power points we said weren't working and manually taught on the white board. She bends over backwards to help. Do homework, ask questions, simple A+ if you do.

You should not have needed the solutions manual to pass. She is a wonderful teacher and will bend over backwards to make sure you pass. Many chances to raise your grade and score extra credit. She even lets you make up a test, and no final if you have an A.

Wonderful lady. She changed her teaching style for the class because we were not understanding the slides. It seems as though she really wants to make sure everyone understands and makes a good grade. Many chances to make your grade better.

Great lady but not an experienced professor. Has difficulties doing the problems. If it wasn't for the solutions manual we would all fail! I do not recommend at all!
