MATH1013 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A
"Clear grading criteria" "Assignments galore" "Lectures are long"

Lectures - copy and paste from the textbook. Doesn't take many questions after the lactures, gallops through material. Tests are easy, but doesn't let use calculator. On the final exam, there were 2 problems worth 10 marks each, that REQUIRED you to use calculator!! I had to calculate square root by trial and error, and divide huge numbers by hand!

1013 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Unlike what everyone says, she's the best math professor i had so far. She's very clear, if you ask her a question, and you are persistent enough, you'll get what she's explaining.So pay attention in class, instead of finding her faults. Though her tests are "hard", it will give you a good for you in the future if you require math courses future.

She is as great as it gets. You have all the opportunity in the world to finish with a good mark. a LOT of people dont do good in this course, not because of her, but because they suck at calculus. She is a REALLY good prof. clear, concise, and pretty chill. I totally recommend her.

She generally gives good notes however she goes over the content of the course too fast. Many students have trouble keeping up with the notes she writes. She needs to slow down a bit because it essentially felt like a robot was teaching in the class. Her exams are quite hard and will include curve ball questions so beware.

She teaches concepts well, but her average class average for tests is always failures! 72% of her class failed the second test (out of 80ish people), and she has the nerve to say "it wasn't hard" and so she wont bump grades. Slighly above 10% got a B- or better. I don't know what she's thinking! Do not take this class!

Good prof, explained the concepts well in lecture and wrote good notes on the board. Tests were fair, just make sure you do the practice questions in the textbook!!
