MAT1033 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A+
"Would take again" "Respected by students" "Hilarious"

She is great at what she does. You wont really need your book but it will help you with certain steps if you want more of an understanding on the chapter. If I could I would take her class again. Love her

MAC1140 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I immediately mistrust any professor who refuses to write on the board, and expressly uses a projector. This is Nydia Nelson. I enjoy mathematics, but Nydia's tired "do this to pass the test" attitude is killing my joy. So is her haphazard lecture style. No context for anything is given. I'm a Physics major--this stuff really matters to me.

MAT 1105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She is pretty funny and will help you, but you have to ask for it. She will also come to class early if you need her help. A lot of note taking, you use my math lab so there is no book, and you have a review day before the test. She doesn't like excuses and will not take late work. Overall great teacher, you just can't slack.

MAT1033 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

VERY JEALOUS AND UNPROFESSIONAL PROFESSIONAL PROFESSOR. SEEMS TO BE NICE BUT HAS BEEN CAUGHT IN PLENTY OF LIES THROUGHOUT THE SEMESTER. ONLY WORKS FOR MONEY AND DOESN'T HAVE ANY PASSION TO TEACH THERE FOR BE PREPARED TO SPEND A LOT OF TIME IN THE TUTORING LAB.

MAT 018 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A+

She cares about her students and makes sure that everyone understands so they can succeed in other classes. She is tough but ends up giving you extra credit. I'm taking 028 and 1033 with her in the Spring.Just keep in mind that she's a very busy professor so responding emails, office hours, and uploading grades is not her strongest subject.

AAP0033 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Attendance wasn't required. Book provided on first day due to cost of class. Homework you can do as many times as you want until you're satisfied with your grade, quizzes and exams 3 times max. No reason you shouldn't pass! She's as multiple campuses too! I have a 96% and I failed MAT1033 twice! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

MAC 1033 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor Nelson is great! Anybody that has something negative to say about her are either lazy, want someone that will give them the answers, or they are/didn't put forth enough effort. She explains in great detail, tutors her own students, goes over the review which is basically the test, and offers lots of extra credit. Plus, she is fine :)

MAT 1033 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is very knowledgeable about math. She makes it pretty clear on how to do things. The reviews are just like the tests so if you do those youll pass.

Ms.Nelson is good at what she does but she is tough. But its tough love, because she wants you to learn. Some may say shes mean, but she not shes just FIRM.. There lots of extra credit and perks in the class with MML. Passing her class is very possible. Just do your best and you will be fine. Im awful at math but I managed to pass, you can too =)

MAC1105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I'm not a fan of math, period. However, Ms. Nelson, while fast and sometimes annoyed with the same questions over and over, she sets her classes up to succeed. If you show up, study her reviews, do your homework and the insane amount of extra credit, there is no way you won't exempt the final. :)

If anyone don't pass Miss Nelson class it's because you didn't come to class and take notes. Homework and quizzes online,you'll pass all her test if you study her study guide. easy A or B

STA2023 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Quizzes are online (My Stats Lab)and reflective more of book chapters than her incomplete class notes which fall very short on material. Class content is too watered down -- helps her but not students grasp important concepts. Attitude: Very sassy. Too anecdotal about her personal life. Thumbs down.

07She's always on your back, making everyone nervous watching what if your doing it right. She does care about her students but she doesnt give you enough room to breath sometimes. you will have quizes every week and 5 big tests in class.

math is not my favorite subject, but she is very easy to understand and she offers tutoring right after class. She is also very lenient, she will extend homework dates if you're having a hard time. The only way you can fail that class is if you do not show up.

I had her my first semester back in 2010 and she was a wonderful teacher! Very patient. Firm but fair. If you show you're willing to do your best, she does everything in her power to make you pass. She's so good, I'm going to try and get in her class again
