"Tough Grader" "Assignments galore" "Get ready to read"

I took stats with Tyne and thought she was wonderful. HOWEVER. Her new version of calc is mostly online with a recitation type class meeting time. ENDLESS clicker questions and weekly quizzes that are a nightmare. She takes the HARDEST POSSIBLE questions and puts them all on a quiz. Very rude in class and took everything personally.

"Assignments galore" "Get ready to read"

Tyne's knowledge of the subject matter is shallow. This is supposed to be a college-level calculus class, but the material is dumbed down to a high school level.

"There for you" "Participation matters" "Would take again"

Tyne is absolutely amazing teacher! She records and posts videos online about the material that you can go back and watch as many times as you please. There are 3 exams, small weekly quizzes, and an online homework assignment. If you ever need help, you can go and talk to her. She is such a sweet, understanding, and caring person!

Best math professor I've had. She is very clear and deliberate in lectures, and makes herself available for office hours if you need it. Also tests are pretty easy considering the subject matter.

If you go to and pay attention to class and recitation, do the homework on time, and watch the videos she posts, you'll do absolutely fine. The best math professor I've ever had.

The class is very easy if you go to class and do the homework. Getting 100's on the tests is not hard at all. She is very straight-forward and organized.

VERY great prof! I like calc anyway and she made the class enjoyable. She is very good about communication with students and prompt about returning grades and answering questions. She posts lecture slides and solutions to labs on first class and all is helpful. She may go to fast for some, but I highly recommend Professor Tyne

MAT126 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I had no trouble understanding the calculus concepts. She gives homework for the students to better understand the material, not for busy work. The labs and the homework were very helpful. The weekly quizzes helped prepare for the exams, which were very reasonable. The lectures were very helpful and absolutely worth attending.A fantastic professor.

MAT232 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She was a great teacher but she made us do all the annoying tasks that she " thought" would help us. To me they were just busy work and to me pointless. It made me dread doing the things she asked. Like the Math den, and EVERYTHING online. Not my favorite class.

Definitely the best professor I had this semester. she made something as hard as calculus easy to learn for most of us. the online coursecompass program is much better than normal textbooks and homework too. If you need to take calc next semester request her!

She is very concerned about each and every student's progress and is willing to help whenever you need it. She is understanding and her tests aren't that hard. The quizzes she gives are really helpful to ace the material though they are completely out of the textbook's content. Overall, I love this class cuz u really know what you are doing.
