MAC 2311 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: Rather not say
"Tests are tough" "Tough Grader" "Pop quiz master"

If you take Professor Torres, then you will not pass Calculus. Her test are nothing like the material she gives you in class, homework, or quizzes. Her accent is very thick and she is very confusing. SHE TEACHES OFF A POWER POINT and gives very little examples! Rethink taking her class.

Think twice before taking this class. I wish I would listen to to the reviews. I had to spend several hours on the learning center, because her test are very hard and she only teaches you 2 problems per subject.

MAC 1140 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

DO NOT RECOMMEND! She is tough, unclear, and her tests are HARD. The homework and problems she does in class are NOTHING like her test questions. She has a very thick accent so it's hard to understand her. She talks/explains everything at a fast pace and its very difficult to keep up.

MAC 1114 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I think the comments below say it all, this person should not be teaching. Truly do not understand the positive reviews, as the majority of students leave her class with the basically the same knowledge as when they started the class.

Apparently this teacher was great in last year (from the good reviews) because let me tell you she is the worst goes soo fast never goes back to your questions, messes up all the time, and gives the easiest examples and for the test it's so damn hard, DO NOT TAKE HER.

She talks incredibly fast and is hard to understand. I asked her a question once she told me to "intelligently look at the problem". Everyone in my class fails her tests. There are NOT test reviews,she gives test immediately after finishing a section, oh and she spends ONE DAY on each section. If you still decided to take the class, I WARNED YOU!!

Don't understand the positive reviews. I have a near perfect GPA and never struggled like this class. Spent dozens of hours studying only to fail the tests. She bases the class around memorization rather than knowing how to work out the problems. Good if you can memorize tons of variants of pi. Talks a mile a minute with no explanation.

Professor Torres is amazing. Clear examples in class and if you need help with the homework she will give you as many examples as you need so long as you ask for help. Anyone who can't pass her trig class isn't doing their part. Has given a make up for every test, and tries hard to ensure students understand the material and pass the class.

She goes very fast in the class and the test immediately follow the finished chapters she has selected without a review day. Get a tutor IMMEDIATELY if you take this class because if you don't understand going to her does nothing because she explains it the same way over an over again and basically calls you stupid

SHE ROCKS!!! Best math teacher I have ever taken. I took Ching Chang Lo at the Tarpon Springs campus and received an F in his class. I took Ms. Torres this past summer and received an A! 100% Recommend!!!

Professor Torres is a very nice lady. I enjoyed her as a person, but not her exams. Homework and take home tests are great, but the exams are a lot harder than the homework. If you are struggling with the homework, you will definitely flunk the exam. It's a good class if you want a challenge.

I took this class online and wouldn't recommend it. She is slow at getting back to you and doesn't keep up with logging in your grades. It sounds like she's a great teacher on campus however, when you take an online course communication is everything!

She was a great teacher once you got past her accent. Her class is A LOT of work though. Like it's more a writing class than anything else.

Professor Torres is an awesome teacher! Her accent takes a bit to get used to, but she is incredibly helpful, very interactive with her classes, and she genuinely wants you to do well and enjoy math as much as she does. Definitely recommend taking Prof. Torres!

She is a very nice teacher. She tries to do everything to help you. homework is not required but if you do it, it helps you and you also get extra points towards your test. She has a nice accent! But overall she's amazing!
