MATH 120 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A 
A word to describe Prof. Carter? "Demoralizing." Far too much of her grades are focused on tests, but equal time is expected to be devoted to sections that are only worth 19 of the total score tests are worth. Doesn't show for her own tests, and only shows concern for struggling students when it's too late to do something. Find another teacher.

I don't get all these comments about her being unhelpful. Dr. is very helpful, she just doesn't want to hear the same question about the same problem OVER AND OVER. You wouldn't, either. Just go during office hours and she will definitely help you with what you are struggling with, and if she won't answer every problem, that is what a tutor is for.

She's really great, friendly and clear in the problems. It's just a matter of asking her to explain it or to talk to her in the office hours. Her final was a bit ridiculous, however, she ends up dropping the lowest test score anyway so it's easy to get a passing grade as long as you do the homework online.

Absolutely fabulous teacher. She explains all concepts in extreme detail and answers every question thoroughly. She's always willing to help and makes herself available to students whenever they need assistance. She uses MyMathLab, so all the material is available online. If you do the homework, its almost impossible not to pass her class.

DO NOT TAKE HER CLASS. I had no choice because she was the only one that fit into my schedule but you learn nothing from her. Math is my favorite subject, except with her I stopped caring a while ago and just try to get a good grade now. She doesn't know how to do some of the problems she assigns in the hw!!! And tests are kinda ridiculous.

Ms. Carter is great teacher, the mymathlab is very helpful as well because i am one of those people that forgets how to do something by the time i get home. she explains everything really well and is very helpful and has a lot of office hours. i totally recommend her if you struggle with math.

Although the homework load and tests are pretty bearable, do not take Carter if you actually want to learn something! Class is a waste. You have to go home and teach yourself. She is not helpful in class or outside (office hours are a joke) and she takes over two weeks to get tests back! Avoid avoid avoid!

She is fully aware that students struggle with math which is why she is not a robot. She went to Harvard so you can expect her to put the same effort on her students to learn better. She will slowly guide you through each and every course materials. Just give your attention. She is one of the best teachers I have had for Math.

Don't take Carter if you're not looking for an online class. The lengthy amount of online homework doesn't correspond with the lectures, which are based off of theorems. You need to dedicate a lot of time to the class because projects, test, & quizzes are all due on the day of an exam. Opt for a proffessor who teaches, not a computer!!!

The class is heavily online based, where homework is not mandatory, but the quizzes and tests act in lieu of it. In class, the work is easy but the exams are heavily based off the book and online quizzes. She gives suggested review problems for each exam. as long as you study those and understand how to do them, you are guaranteed a good grade.

shes an easy A teacher but after the semester you learnt nothing. It is because her exams are all based on the online works, so if you practice enough online, you will be fine on the exam and final. DO NOT EXPECT to learn from her

Nice person, but totally disorganized, never uses the text, shows her frustration when a student asks a question that might require her to repeat herself. I was in the hospital for a week, missed an Exam, she wouldn't let me make it up, I offered to take half credit and she refused. Does not work with students to help them understand the concept.

One of the best math teachers I have ever had. All online homework,quizzes, and tests. Exams use problems straight from the online problems. Lecture is based off of explaining concepts behind examples. Liked her so much I took 193 with her too.

As one review said, she seems to lack the fundamentals. Easily goes into 'confused mode' when student asks a tougher question. Cannot really explain/teach concepts. Tests not impossible, but throws ppl off b/c it only contains 1 ques. / section in text covered. (<10 Qs per test) I'm sure there are better profs out there to choose.

Pretty bad teacher. She doesn't have a comfortable grasp of the concepts. She spends almost half the lecture trying to explain ONE proof that she often stumbles on. The final is worth 30% and was ridiculously difficult nobody left the final thinking they passed. She canceled almost all of her office hours during the last 2 months of class. Avoid.

You might as well not go to class and read the book instead. She makes the final worth 30% of your grade, and makes it very hard, so what small chance you have of a good grade is sabotaged.Takes her forever to get back tests and frequently cancels office hours. Seems very unsure of herself as a teacher. Overall annoying class format. Avoid.

Horrible Teacher. She doesnt understand the concepts shes teaching. Her lectures are fragmented, full of skipped concepts, slow and boring. Be prepared to teach yourself the material. There is little to no feedback on tests and if you ask a question in class be prepared to be belittled. If you want to make Math hell be sure to take her.

Horrible Horrible Teacher. I have no idea how this woman got a job teaching math. She doesnt have an adequate grasp of the Mathematical concepts to be teaching it to students. Her lectures are fragmented, full of skipped concepts, slow and boring. She takes ages to explain easy concepts to the T and skips quickly over difficult concepts. Basi
