Math 180 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is one of the most amazing teachers ever. I took her 180, it's not a super easy A class, but it is not that hard. Quiz every Friday, online homework for every chapter, she is there to help. Her exam is on her practice test and there is a review day for you to ask questions.

"There for you" "Amazing lectures"

Took her for calc1&2 and got both A's. It's very possible to get a good grade, just do the practice exams until you're comfortable with the material. And staying on top of homework will make u less stressed about her weekly quizzes.

math 170 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Half of the homework she assigns, she either doesnt lecture on, or she skips that section in her own hand written notes. Ive always enjoyed math but she makes it so freeking difficult becasue shes not teaching the material, but then somehow expects us to know it. AVOID this teacher.

MATH 185 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A+

Overall, wonderful professor! Because it is calculus, it requires intense study time. However, she breaks down the material for you and tries her best to make the course more bearable. I really enjoy math because of her and I STRUGGLE at math. I recommend her. Quizzes every week tho. lol

MATH 185 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I took Avetisian for Math 180 and 185. She's a great math teacher, helps a lot when you visit her in her office. Quizzes every week based on online homework, 3 exams, 2-part final. Practice exams are very helpful, so make sure to do them and you'll do well in the class. Highly recommended! Ended with an A!!

MATH 180 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She's a good teacher and explains the material smoothly. Quizzes every Friday based on online homework, 5 tests and cumulative final (W/ practice exams). She expects you to be prepared for calculus that's why she keeps saying: "You should know this, you're not in algebra anymore." NO EXTRA CREDIT, so don't bother and do your homework!

She kept me paying attention in lecture, and it turned out that she told us everything we needed to know for her tests. She is very helpful.

When you ask a question, be prepared for the response "You should know that, this isn't math 10." This happened regardless of the complexity of the question at hand.

MATH A170 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She goes on with the class as if everyone in the class was in pcalculus because they were good at it and if you were not good at it you were left behind. Her office hours were small and she usually gave me a quick explanation with the same "this is easy you should get this" attitude. Taking it online was not the best idea ever either.

She's a great professor, Taken her for 170,180 and going to be taking her for 185. Quiz are easy A, but should be used to notice your mistake. There's no reason not to be getting A on the test. If your having problem go to the success center. don't blame her, because she is always there to help you if you need help

Math 170 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She isn't clear on her lessons as she moves fairly fast because she expects everyone to know some of the material already. I basically had to teach myself. Getting an A isn't that hard if you put in a lot of time. I don't recommend this class because of the online portion of it. The workload of this class was the equivalent of 3 of my other classes

Great professor. I took this class with a different professor before and dropped it because I wasn't doing well. Took her and got a high A. Tests are multiple choice and are almost the exact questions as the practice exams she gives you. A lot of homework, but if you do it all as well as the practice exams, you will do well. TAKE HER!

Hybrid online class with a lot of homework, but she's great. Exams are based on study guides, so if you can do the study guides, you'll get an A in the class. Do all the online homework and quizzes, because it's worth like 1/3 of your grade as basically free points. Also gives you free points every day for in-class worksheets. Great class.

Professor Avetisian is a good instructor. She is willing and able to help students with any work and explains material well. This class is half online though and the homework is sometimes difficult to finish on time if you don't keep a good schedule. You'll get an A if you do almost all the homework and practice exams. Key word in math: practice.
