Math 203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B+

Nice lady. If you are a non engineering major looking for an A. Just do her homework exactly how she does examples in class and you can get an A. For majors that require a higher level of math after Math 203 run and look for another. Took this class and was honestly babied and did not get a full understanding. Now I have to take Math 304.

Dr. Arroyo is honestly one of the sweetest people I have had the pleasure to meet. She knows her stuff and as long as you pay attention you will do well. I had her for Trig and Algebra 3 and I made an A in both. If I can do it, you can do it

Worst teacher at FMU! She is not helpful at all and quite rude when you ask questions. Class is not very hard, but she's very hard to understand!!!!

MATH111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I got out of this class with an A and it was easy. However, if I could go back and do it again, I would have taken it with a different professor. I'm sure Dr. Arroyo is a perfectly nice person but the fact that it took me a week to begin to understand her drove me absolutely postal. Math 111 is easy enough, jhust try to avoid Arroyo.

Math111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Many people do not like her because of her accent, but she is a pretty good teacher. If you go to her office hours it will help you. I went to her office hours the day before the exams and would get 98s because of the extra points and what not. She also have a sense of humor ad is sort of funny. Overall she is an above average teacher.

STAT134 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Everyone said she was a great teacher but not in this class I couldn't really understand her. At first I was going to drop the class but then someone said she was really good so I decided to stay in but she doesn't explain much and she gets mad if you ask her any questions about the material.

I have had Arroyo for multiple classes now, and she is wonderful. Her notes are posted online, and she only counts about half of the hw towards your grade, the rest usually ends up as extra credit. She is always available for help, and will work with you until you understand the material.

STATS134 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This lady is the worst of the worst. You can't understand a word she is saying. She doen't give you extra credit and when you ask a question she doesn't want to answer it. She sometimes says she doesn't have to work. She doesn't help you at all. If you had to take STATS I prefer you take a professor that speaks english and explains the material.

Mat134 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She is a nice person but English is not her first language which makes it hard to understand most of what she says. She gives out power points and reads them instead of teaching. She expects you to memorize several formulas and doesn't give partial credit on anything. If you are bad at math or haven't taken a math class in awhile-steer clear.

Math111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

The class is EASY(currently have a 83).... but she takes points off for almost every thing; like equal signs and also if your ANSWER IS RIGHT but you skip a step. She pass the attendance sheet around everyday before class even starts. NEVER lets us out early and SHE IS ALSO VERY BORING!!!

If you enjoy being babied through a course, this is the woman for you. But first make sure you can understand her accent.

Math140 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She is the easiest math teacher I've ever had. She posts her notes on blackboard, gives you homework that she basically goes over in class, and her tests come straight from the homework. People who do not at least make a B in this class should not major in business!

Overall, this course wasn't very difficult. I'm not going to lie, the class was boring, but not that hard. She offers a lot of extra credit and her grading is fair. She gives excellent notes. All you have to do to get a A or B is do a good job on the homework. All you have to do to get a A is study the hw and quiz problems.

The teacher was great - the students in the class were retarded. They made fun of the instructors accent - I felt like I was back in grade school.
