MAT 56 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A
"Would take again" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Amazing lectures"

She was very helpful and explained everything perfectly. Theres alot of people who are going to take this class that do not care and start problems, but just ignore them, stay focused & u will pass. The professor was always fair with grading and all the tests reflected what she taught in class. Alot of homework but it really does help. Recommend!!

"Hilarious" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Clear grading criteria"

I love her! She is strict, but very funny at the same time. Be respectful, go to class every day, do ALL your homework, and you WILL pass! The homework she gives is always either from the textbook, or a practice exam. Expect to WORK for your grade. It's not easy, but if you want to LEARN, this is it! She will prepare you for MAT 206 PERFECTLY!

"Clear grading criteria"

Not a positive person. All previous comments about her attitude are accurate. When it comes to teaching she has the perfect title lecturer. Does not give positive feedback or address your weaknesses. She can be friendly and brings food for her students but insults you at the same time. Take class if you have strong math not if you need to learn.

MAT 56 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She helped me in such a major way. She understood what I needed to succeed in the class and she told me just what was required of me to get there. Her class isn't easy, but she's patient. She has a great down to earth personality. She knows her math. She did her best. I initially considered dropping the class. I'm so glad I stayed.

She's strict, but funny at the same time. Homework and quizzes every day. She's fast paced, but that could be because this is a 22 day class (Summer Immersion). And brings the class treats! :D All in all, awesome teacher if you plan out taking this class seriously!

Professor Inkelis is a really good teacher and very funny. She is very clear and makes you understand everything and from where it is coming from. She develop all the concepts so you won't get lost. Test are pretty straight forward. Best teacher ever.

Her class was enjoyable at times. But if you asked her a question she would make you feel like you asked a dumb question. ALWAYS LATE to class, How I passed the finals but failed the class. SO UNFAIR!!!!! "I didn't meet the criteria"

If you're good with math it will be a breeze. If not, then you better go to the math lab. Like someone previously said, it's her way or no way and she only does it once and after that it's on us. I know professors who wouldn't stop until we fully understand it. Prof Inkelis needs to slow it down a bit. She does know her math though I give her that.

Mat056 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is a good teacher if you pay attention & ask ?s in her class. Her flaw is that sometimes she doesn't answer your ? instead she asks someone in the class to answer it. A lot of h.w online that you must do. Her quizzes and test are hard and her grading isn't so good. She takes off points for not showing your work, while having the right answer.

Tests are way harder than anything else. Homework is all online, but fairly easy. The class is easy to follow and she shows you every way to solve a problem. Just study hard for her tests and you will pass.

This professor knows math but have no skill to teach math. If you ask question, she probably make you more confuse. Math is like logic to me but i had nightmare in her class. Now I regret took her because I could not get into Baruch's Zicklin yet because I lack math requirement before I came to Baruch.

worst professor ever, she won't help you to understand anything.It's no worth it your money and your nerves either! Very sarcastic, very mean. She doesn't care if you have questions or not. She is very much into mathematical English (like anyone cares??). I def. won't recommend her! only for those who are 100 % fit in Math!!

Course material wasn't at all hard; really a review of HS math + a bit extra. Problem is this prof turned a simple review into a nightmare! One of those ppl who understands the material but can't teach it + short fuse + always moody up/down + do the math her way or loose pts + becomes confused by your Q's + can't keep to her schedule or word!

This professor seems to know the math in her head and gets frustrated when trying to teach it to her students. She gets upset if you get the wrong answer while doing the steps on the board. She looks like she is high on caffeine or something. she is too of a nervous person for me. i really would not recommend her. She does want to help but just don
