I took this course on-line and felt as though her Powerpoints/notes section did not introduce chapters well. She is very harsh on grading exams. I received a 91% with the online quiz, but a 50% on the exam...I thought I understood the material. She doesn't allow extra credit.

I like to think of Wendy Fresh as more of a cheerleader for my online Math class vs a teacher of it. I've had her class twice and she is very encouraging emailing with questions, but if you are having more of a concept issue with a section there is really no help- she can only help you solve a specific problem. Her tests and grading are harsh.

LOVE HER! She goes out of her way to help and her notes saved me. MyMathLab is really helpful too. It's a hard class, but her tests are doable if you've gone to class and done the homework. No tricks on them. Take her class! You'll be happy you did.

Attendance is required, but missing a class will not horribly affect your grade. Fast paced, but takes time for questions. Very nit-picky but it is needed for the material. If you struggle in math, take someone else because the class moves very fast.

Mrs. Fresh, is an absolute great teacher. I'll admit, in the weeks before attending her class, I looked at what some students were saying about her and I was a little intimidated. The class is easy so long you pay attention and do the work. One of the greatest teachers ever. She offers a lot of help and there are many resources given for success.

Wendy is a great teacher. She comes prepared to class each day and uses all class time to teach and let students do examples. Besides this, she is funny and approachable. Always willing to help. Tests are only hard if you don't do your homework. No surprises.

One of the single worst math teachers I have ever had. The woman attempted to redefine "solve" versus "simplify" and she frequently berates her students as though they were children. She reduced one woman to tears because she had the audacity to try discussing test anxiety with her. I wouldn't recommend this instructor to anyone for any reason.

Best teacher I've had so far at PCC. Her guided notes are incredibly helpful. Tests are difficult, but fair. Put in the work & ask if you need help before each quiz/test. She is available to help if you're struggling. A tough class for many and not an easy A, but a great opportunity to learn.

I have mixed emotions regarding this teacher. I think she does a great job explaining the concepts very well, however with that said, her tests are extremely hard. Her tendency of picking the most trickiest problems is common place on tests. Doing the massive amounts of required homework will not guarantee you will pass her tests.

Unless you have 10 hours a week to dedicate for her class (lectures, classwork, notes, hw, etc.), do not take it. It's a work overload and I'm not exaggerating. However, if you do happen to have those 10 hours a week, go ahead and take her. She's very helpful and explains concepts very clear, it's just a lot of work.

She is a great teacher and makes the concepts very clear and easy to understand. Even better if you are planning on continuing to calculus because she knows a lot about that and will make pointers on what concepts will be carried on into calculus.

Wendy is great! Her tests and quizzes are hard, but if you've done your homework and reviews you should be fine. Quizzes are just like homework problems. I wish she was teaching calculus this term:( She's funny too! Recommend!

quizzes, a midterm and a final were really hard. a very nice teacher and willing to help . She explained the materials really fast, and there are often times when she loves to go over the last 3 or 4 pages in the last 30 mins of the class. NOT RECOMMENDED her !!

Very good teacher, will find a way to explain concepts so that you can understand them. Her guided notes are awesome. Always willing to help if your willing to ask for it. Only frustration I had was the final, best thing I can say is just because the mid terms were easy doesn't mean the final will be... Study hard!

GPA killer. Uses vocabulary that was not taugh in class or in HW on tests. Quizzes hurt your grade more than help. Quizzes set up in a way that if you miss one answer a C is the best result that can be obtained. All three test including the final are almost impossible to complete in the alotted time. Would never take her class again.

Great!!! Very clear, exams are what you would expect, very helpful. Linear, logical lectures, easy to follow. I have no clue how anyone could give her a poor rating. My advice: don't take math as an online course.

The tests were very confusing and difficult. when there are multiple "formulas" that you can use to solve a problem, she wants you to use a specific one, but she will not tell you which one to use, and if you don't use the one she wants you to, she marks it as being wrong.

Wendy is very nice and will explain math problems different ways. IF YOU ASK! There is a lot to cover so she does have to go fast sometimes. but you can go to her office or she does work in the tutoring center. This class is not easy, but Wendy does all she can to help.
