Pre-Alg Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She's a good professor although I did not understand anything she taught. She talks too fast & if you aren't good at math, I suggest you take someone else.

ALG 020 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A

Great teacher, do the homework and you'll be fine. Tests questions are exactly like what you do in homework. She gives you a bonus question on each test and gives partial credit if you have the wrong answer. She'll also let you retake one of your online quizzes at the end of the semester if you want to try for a better grade. Great prof!

Do the work and don't procrasinate. Space your work out and don't cram. Prof. Colpo is enthusiastic and encouraging. The work is tough, but she grades fairly; the partial credit on exams was very appreciated. Don't go into tests unprepared - Your 3 proctored exams are worth 75% of grade!!! She's a great professor- highly recommend. Did online class

Math020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Professor Colpo is very helpful and seems to ALWAYS be available. She gives partial credit on her exams (which is a major help for those of us terrible at Math). Her willing to help made the subject bearable. I'd recommend her for anyone who dislikes Math, but has to take it anyway.

Responds to emails within a day, very helpful and understood even through an online class. Posts to the boards a lot and gives us weekly or biweekly introductions. Will be taking her classes again in the future!

I loved having her as my professor! She was SUPER helpful in class and out. She never made you feel stupid for asking questions. She was very quick to reply to emails. She was also very pleasant and energetic. I would highly recommend her!

I absolutely did not want to take a math class but had to. This class has been awesome and the professor very responsive. You can tell just by the tone in her e-mail that she wants you to succeed. She is GREAT

I'm an adult student-been avoiding Math for 9yrs(since HS!). Mrs. C is AMAZING!:responds quickly to questions & truly cares about students being successful. Even when she had unexpected surgery, she had her daugther let the students know! What's best is she really encourages class to interact. Can't praise her enough.She restored faith in myself :)

Took her class online. She is very understanding that the website does not always work and gives some extra time. She also responds to your questions quickly. If you do your homework and quizzes; the tests are self-explanitory.

This online class has been a wonderful experience. She has answered all questions, sometimes more than once. She give us reminders and explains things in laymans terms. I couldn't ask for a better professor.

One of the best Math professors @ HACC. She wants everyone to succeed and will do everything in her power to help you pass her class. I HATED math, and was even worse @ it, but she really strives to help you understand the material. Great professor. If you're scared of the Math classes, TAKE HER! She'll help you and you'll get an A! TAKE HER!

I took her 005,010, and 020 she is a wonderful teacher. She uses the math lab for all homework which is worth an easy 100 points. If you do your homework come to class and pay attention it is easy to get a good grade.. Would take her for my 051 but she is not offering it this summer..

Professor Colpo is an excellent teacher. I'm taking her this summer for my 020 class. If you DO YOUR HOMEWORK, PARTICIPATE IN CLASS, you will surely get an A! If you just complete your work, and act mature, she'll acknowledge that and she'll be very helpful/friendly! I got an A+!

Mrs. Colpo is a very friendly and helpful professor, good at explaining the concepts, uses MyMathLab for homework which counts a lot and will help your grade. Tests are fair and she gives generous partial credit. You will do fine if you come to class, keep up with your homework, do the practice tests and e-mail her if you have any questions.

Professor Colpo is a great teacher overall. She is very informative and very, very helpful. She's a wonderful Math teacher and she really makes you feel confident in whatever Math material that you are learning. 1 tip though, DO YOUR HOMEWORK! If you do your HW & pay attention, you'll get an A guaranteed!
