Math 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A+

She is condescending, rude, bored, and she speaks to us as if trying to shame us about being college students in an algebra class. Maybe its a form of motivation but I don't209 dig it..

Math 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Spends so much time on a topic for days, she speaks slowly and drawls it out that made it hard to concentrate. At times polite, though will loudly point out flaws in mandatory practice problems (which she wants everyone to finish, complete, & hand it in, even if you don't understand the material). I don't recommend taking her class.

MATH101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

I honestly found her to be a really great professor. She explains the material very well and was always willing to help me when I needed help. Review before every test which is extremely helpful!

MATH 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A+

Professor Roos is a very knowledgeable,organized,and intelligent.I'm really surprised people are saying she is not helping,she helps as much as she can. Review sheet before each exam.No surprises on a test. In my view classwork was harder than exams.Class is not easy.But if you study, you will be fine. Highly recommend her.

MATH 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B-

Not helpful at all, constantly would reply to questions with vague answers as "i didn't write that, that formula is wrong. no" and no further explanation other than to ask classmates for help. Teach yourself from the homework and you'll be fine, otherwise find another professor

MATH 10100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She doesn't help, when asked a question on wrong work her responses are vague such as "you didn't set it up correctly. Thats not what i wrote. ask your classmates" . if my work was sloppy, she would say "I don't know what your background is, but we do things a very certain way here" and as a minority, i was offended. Teach yourself from the hw.

Math 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She isn't really helpful, a lot of time when students asked questions she said she didn't have time to review it. Provides review sheets for exams which are helpful. If you struggle with math, don't take her. Class work every class which isn't part of the grade (it should be since you put so much time into it). No partial credit or extra credit.

this professor is amazing and very intelligent. all you have to do is study all of the problems you did at the end of the class for classwork and keep them. also do the test review sheet. easy way to get a god grade. when final time comes, review all your classwork that you did and dont be afraid to ask questions. great professor but you must try.

One of the best professors I've ever had. Very helpful and she makes you challenge yourself at the same time. She is very clear on the way she explains things. Excellent professor.

makes things easy to understand. She's very structured. In the beginning she gives you a do now and teaches new concepts. Then she'll put problems on the board to test you understanding. The you have to complete a classwork sheet that you hand in at the end of class. If you pay attention, you'll do fine. She also gives review sheets! HW is online

If you don't understand something ask her,99.9% of the time her personal attention to your mathematical wows will shed light on them. If you sit there overwhelmed by her pace and precision and allow yourself to be overwhelmed,then your gonna have a hard time.

Prof. Roos is GREAT! Her method of teaching is straightforward and crystal clear, she gives lots of homework and classwork, so by the time you take the tests, you're 100%. She gives review sheets before the each test, which is very helpful. I took this class in the summer session, so it was not easy, but I got an A :)

MATH 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

It's math 101, so you should be fine. Do all of the work, and homework, don't cheat yourself out of it and you'll be okay. She's not the best teacher and she doesn't explain well, but all in all she's understanding and will help you as much as possible. Just do your online homework and make sure you get every question right on every quiz.

She's a great teacher. I took her in the Summer, hoever, so maybe my review is a bit biased. She's a simple teacher and the tests aren't bad. I liked her. :)

She is a nice lady however she is not very helpful every time someone asked a question because they genuinely didn't know something she would just say "I'm not helping you, you should know this."

AMAZING professor. Extremely helpful in and out of class. She is in the Math lab very often and replies to emails very quickly. She genuinely cares about her students and their success. It is important to be punctual and neat and organized, because that's how she is. Loved spending two semesters in her classroom!

She's good.. she started off better though. Lots of hw, projects, and activities... just put in some time and it'll all be good. Can't find the purpose for reading Alice in Wonderland though...nothing to do with math. If you need to take 105, take it with Roos. Not the best, but still good.

EXCELLENT Professor! I recommend taking her class. Don't buy the textbook! Go to the Math Lab center and do it there! Plus Roos supervises there. You have a lot of homework, but go to lab and you will get it done! Exams are fair, and just practice the problems by doing the homework she assigns and you will get an A. Taking her for 105 for sure:)
