Mth60 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

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.

MTH 111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

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.

MTH 112 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

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.
