MAC2233 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Although she is a sweet lady and is very positive to people that are interested in the class her teaching sucks ! because it doesn't match my learning style make sure before you take her you ask her questions on her gradings and rate for survey of calculus or else you are in straight boooboo . BEST OF LUCK

MAC2233 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

DON'T TAKE HER!GUYS!Although is the last class left or you think you might study by yourself,DON'T TAKE HER!Speak from my own experience,and this mad lady was the worst professor I've ever taken. She hates questions and has difficulty to explain the examples clearly.She is rude and irritable. She may can teach prep-math,but definitely not calculus!

Mat0028 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I always used to be bad at math getting Cs or lower. But taking her class I receive As and Bs on quizzes (except one which was because i did not study :( ) She explains everything and as long as you have questions and take the class seriously she tries to help as much as possible. If you screw around it would be hard for you to be on her good side.

MAT0028 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She is a very good professor. As long as you show her that you are trying snd doing your homework, there is nothing to worry about. If you see something negative about her, mostly is it because many students are frustrated with math; however its not HER fold, so do not get confused and do not blame it on her.

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

She's not a horrible teacher. Students are in college so in order to pass you have to follow her rules just like any other class. There's alot of homework but if you do it you will pass the test, hence the fact she assigns all the homework. She's very nie and the class is not boring. If you put in the effort you will get the grade you deserve.

She's incredibly nice, but very hard. if you're not supre good at math DO NOT TAKE THIS COURSE!!! Over half of my class failed. She's sweet, but it makes you wonder why she's still a professor.

This lady was ridiculous. She was a very bad teacher and does not make any sense. I dropped the class and tested out of it. I would not recommend any one to take her. She makes you do stupid group exercises that don't help and her test are crap. Save your time and money

MAT1033 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Prof. Porro is, by far, THE WORST math teacher I have ever had. Save your money! I took her thinking that she would be helpful, considering it was a prep class but I was so wrong. She doesn't like to answer questions or explain things twice. She calls her students (me) slow and is rude to everyone who isn't good at math. I withdrew from her class.

MAT1033 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This professor can be hard, but as long as you go to class and actually do your hw she is the best teacher ever! If you don't want to be in school- don't go. many in the class were lazy and complained but all she was doing was her job.

msc1105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She teaches right from the text. If your comfortable with one way, F.O.I.L for example, she makes you use another method. You MUST do homeowrk on time and keep it in a binder that she grades. I took her combo class and she treated it like it was highschool. I do NOT reccomened this professor if you have a job,children or other classes.

mac2233 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I'm not one to talk badly about anyone but just a heads up. She teaches everything from the book, hates questions, talk low to students. You are better off with a math lab honestly. If you can teach yourself you can pass.

MAC1105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I took prof. Porro as a combo class as MAT 1033 and MAC 1105. Both classes I passed with an A. But seriously she is no joke when it comes to doing homework on time. I had math everyday and it was very stressful. With Prof Porro you have to DO ALL THE WORK SHE PROVIDES! Practice Tests on MathXL helped ALOT! If you do all your work you can pass! =)
