Math 2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Average teacher. very nice, helpful in answering questions. grades on attendance, weekly quizzes, 4 tests. tests based on quizzes, and very easy final based on prefinal. Online homework due every week, completely irrelevant to course. Easy B, not difficult to get an A if you keep up in the class. Generous with partial credit.

Not a hard professor. truly cares for her students. Take if you care about learning and receiving an A at the same time. Her number one priority is her students

MTH8 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Nice teacher. Attendance is mandatory and there's online assignments due every week. She is strict on her rules but fair at the same time. The online work portion is what helped me study and do well. Exams are easy, all based off the HW. Easy A if you dedicate some time for the HW not skip classes.

She is a GOOD professor. I am not good at Math but still had a lot of fun in her class. Her lecture was straight forward and tests were easy based on all homework. She gave some extra credits and attendence was mandatory. Take her and easy A!

Math2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

She is a horrible teacher. i love math and i came into the class with pre calc knowledge, but if you have never taken pre calc, you have to study by yourself in order to get a B. It is very difficult to understand her and her notes. she makes the material more complicated than it needs to be. its her way or no way.

Don't take her class. You might not understand her explanation because it is unclear. I NEVER have seen professor like her. Horrible teaching!!! If you have to take or can't avoid this class, You really need to study yourself additionally. But test is not that hard.

She was a great professor! She's SUPER nice and keeps the class interesting by joking around. Her lessons/notes are hard to understand sometimes but overall it was fine. She really cares about her students and takes the time to help them. Easy B. Work hard for an A.

MATH 2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

While she tries to help, her lessons are downright aggravatingly confusing. She requires attendance, as well as staying until the very end. This causes her to cram things at the end of the day, and the students suffer for it. Test questions are often among the more difficult for their types. Very difficult to understand, very poor structure. Avoid.

Good teacher. She explains things well and her tests are straight forward. Didn't like her at first but she grew on me. She says there's no extra credit, but it is possible to get over 100% on tests/quizzes. She cares for her students and wants them to learn. Easy enough if you take a little time to do the online homework before exams.

Don't know what are the people below talking about, she's super easy. She often throw some bonus points on the tests, and she gave 30 points of extra credit. Got more than 100% for my final grade.

MATH8 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

And her lectures are very clear; she definitely knows what she's talking about. I struggled through Algebra 2 in high school and I've always been scared of math since then. But I understood all the materials well after taking this class. All her tests are very straight forward and easy, no tricky questions. I aced all of my tests.

MATH253 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Only a few weeks into the 12-13 semester and I already don't like her as a teacher. She is unclear and if you try to ask questions, she barely explains how to do the problems. And when she does explain how to do the problem, she explains it in the way only she can understand. The only thing I like is that her tests and quizzes are fair.

No she's not an easy A, but you will learn if you put forth the minimal effort. she is helpful and her tests are fair. do your part and this class won't be bad at all.

Alg351 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I agree with what alot of people said on here. This teacher was hard to understand. One other thing that was hard to do, was keeping up. It just seemed she blew through the lessons. If you already get Algebra it might work for you. If you are learning still, try for a different teacher.

MATH351 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Her english is okay, but her accent is what makes it hard to understand at times. I do notice that she tends to make people feel stupid when they ask question(s), which is why I never bothered to. I pretty much did most of the learning myself in this class. She sucks at teaching. But hey, at least I did well. THANKS TO MYSELF >:(

If you miss one class she hates you forever and gives you dirty looks the next time you show up. Her lectures are very confusing and she is very condescending when answering questions. If math comes easily to you and you love spending two hours sitting in a class room then take this class. If not, find another teacher!!!
