Math 337 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is a great teacher, knows a lot about math. She is always willing to help and wants you to come in and get help. This class was very hard, not because of her but because the material is hard.

Math119 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Not an easy class. Maybe it could be if she could teach well. She teaches kinda backwards. Ex. she will teach all class period, then will tell u the theorem that it all relates to. Theorem should be first so you can see how it connects to the problems she is doing. I'd look elsewhere...

Math114 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Kris is such an interesting human being! Although she doesn't quite understand people who don't quite "enjoy" mathematics - and goes over your head with the homework, but like with any class - ask questions, get help - you will do great! Kris is such a cool person. It is so worth the challenge just to get to know her. She is a prodigy of math.

MATH124 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Kris is one of those highly intelligent people that aren't always the easiest for others to learn from. Would not have passed this class w/o help from the Skills Center. Only take her if you love math and are potentially a math major.

Math124 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Stats in itself is a very hard class, and she helpled to simplify it - somewhat. She worked best with 'one-on-ones' with her students, than with the entire class. But she still is a good professor. If you are having problems learning the material in the class, go for the 'one on ones'!

Professor Nairn is an excellent teacher. If you're looking for an approachable and respectful math teacher, you need to enroll in her class. If you are not a strong test taker, go work with her during her office hours. She'll help you create a study guide that will help you prepare for her exams.

She was hard when I was taking the class, but looking back I learned more in her class than anything other I've taken.She is way laid back. In class she is hard to follow, but in the end you'll learn alot.

Love her! The best prof of a class that wasn't my major. She made math fun. Super laid back, easy to approach. Tests were few and pretty easy. Take her if you hate math!

Calc120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Kris is pretty intense. You'll cover a lot of stuff in class and you need to study it outside class for it to make sense. There is always a question on her tests that goes way beyond what you learned in class, but overall they're not bad if you study. Very nice and helpful.

Math 305, 337 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Kris is probably the smartest person I have ever met. She is a great prof. She can be tough at times and hard to keep up with. She writes really fast on the board but you can learn a lot from her. If you are having trouble she is always willing to help outside of class. Stop by her office and talk to her about anything. She is a very nice person.

She is a very nice lady, one of the nicest professors i have in fact, but she simply sucks at teaching. Each day in class is a nightmare, and the tests should be reserved for the 7th circle of hell. Not much Hw though. DON'T TAKE HER!
