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

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!!

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.

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

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.

Quiz every Friday and hmk everyday so hope you have no other classes cuz this one eats up time. Does easy examples in class and then tests hard ones. Doesn't drop test score but drop lowest quiz score which is useless as a single quiz is only 10 points out of 800 total points for the class.

Do the practice tests. Know how to do every single problem then seriously easy A on the tests. I didn't study for the first test and got an F. The rest I got A's. So I'm probably getting a B in the class. Do the hwk, don't just do to receive points, but know how to do it too. It will be on the weekly quizzes. Don't be scared to ask her anything.

This class was extremely challenging, and the only class in my 3 years that I was unable to complete with an A. I went to her office hours, asked questions, and was in the tutoring center almost every day. She gives no review of pre-calc material, and I pretty much had to teach myself in this class. It's hard to keep up with the quizzes also.

So sweet and helpful! The math010 hybrid class is the way to go. You can repeat the homework assignments over and over until you get 100%. Just do the online assignments and study for exams. she gets mad when people are late.

I took her Maths A180 in fall 2011. I topped the class and needed roughly 30% in final to get an A. every friday is a quiz day, u will get stressed lol. the class is no easy ride, but it is possible to get A bcos she gives u exactly the same question with dif numbers! oh ye, she definitely knows her stuff. incredible at times.
