this lady is an awful teacher. you learn little to nothing during lecture and are expected to gain the knowledge on your own. i do not recommend her unless you enjoy hours on hours on hours of work in this one class after each lecture.

MATH131 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Rumore is the true definition of a teacher. You will certainly learn in her class, but you have to work! She will push you and challenge you. If your looking for an easy grade, don't take her. If you want to actually get your money's worth of education, DEFINITELY take her.

The first week she does her best to scare off everyone who is not going to take the class seriously, but she gets easier. She takes a little bit to get used to, but by the end of the semester she is like a grandmother. Although she is tough, she is definitely worthwhile.

1312 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She knows her Calculus. If you want to actually learn and have a good foundation for calc 2 and 3 take her class. It's a tough class but doing all the work, taking steady notes, reading the textbook, and asking questions are will allow you to pass this class. If you want future math classes to be easier take her and get the hard work done now. * Don't take it personally, she doesn't really hate her students... I think

MATH115 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Although Dr. Rumore is a generally nice lady, she can come across as gruff and rude. She won't tolerate any bad behavior, so as long as you stay on her good side you'll be fine. Also, she doesn't like to answer questions during the lecture. Class is pretty easy, online hw and she'll drop your lowest 3 quizzes.

Rumore is a really brilliant lady. However, she isnt very good at relaying that knowledge to her students. I wouldnt recommend her as a teacher.

To say that Prof Rumore is a horrible teacher is an understatement. She is not only one of the worst math teachers I have ever had, she is the worst professor I have EVER had PERIOD. Whether your good at math or not she is terrible.

Math131 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I went to her towards the end of the semester and told her that i was really trying in her class to do well but i was having a really hard time understaying some of the material. Her response..."Well i don't know what to tell ya." I mean come on...you're the teacher. Wasn't very nice unless you were getting straight A's in her class...favoritism.

If you pass her class, you will know what you need to excel in second semester calculus. If you want an easy grade, find someone else.

Math133 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Extremely rude. Not easy, even for the labs. Will make you feel stupid when asking for help. Doesn't have a passion to help with understanding. She doesn't care if you fail her class or not.

It's calculus what do you expect? Just work hard on the HW and you'll be fine. Her tests are tricky so study hard.

This is a tough class and teacher. You will struggle if you do not have a background in calc and an even stronger background in algebra. You will learn a lot and probably spend 10 to 20 hours on homework a week...no joke. Good Luck.

Extremely difficult, impossible to understand. Unless you're a math wiz, you're not going to do well in her class. She's also very mean. Whatever you do, pick a different professor.

My reccomendation: only take this class if you have taken calculus in high school, and/or familiar with calc already. Rumore will tell you what she expects and you will be expected to do it. It will be difficult at first, but stick with her and she will warm up to you. She cares about you as a person, too, i promise.
