DO NOT TAKE HER if you have never taken stats.. her quizzes are impossible if you have never taken stats. If you have taken stats the class will be a breeze if not, your screwed!

She is so nice and tries to make the class as easy as possible. I had her for Whole Truth and am so happy I had her. I highly recomend taking her for math if you can.

Forman is actually a pretty great instructor. When she explains stuff on the bored, she does it at a pace that is understandable to everyone. Seems pretty nice. Just don't be an idiot and you'll be fine. Oh and go to SI for extra help because she doesn't really do much outside of class.

Nice in class but extremely unapproachable outside of it. Math 111 is an easy class to begin with so its hard to grade how well she explains things bc u dont really need it, but for the dumb kids in the class who were a little slower she seemed to b very helpful towards. ask q's in class bc out of it she wont b very kind to talk to. good professor

Horribly boring, she has no personality. She does nothing to get the students interested in the material. Does not explain things clearly. Grades homework based on neatness.

Dr. Forman is one of the nicest professors I have ever met. If you don't understand something go to her office hours and she is very willing to help you until you understand. If you miss a quiz she will count that material twice on the next test so you don't even have to make it up. Does not check homework. Take her, she's awesome.

Easy if you go to class, she explains things well. Got a C+ because we had a replacement teacher at the end of the semester who didn't explain well. Take her if you're not good at math, she'll go over things as much as you need her to.

Shes gotten a lil stricter w/ quiz retakes but still fair. Just tell her ahead of time. The class can be hard depending on how easy stats comes to you. Shes nice, grades fair, and is organized. Even gave a bunch of extra credit.

Awesome teacher! she is the sweetest lady, she is so understanding and if you miss a quiz she will count the same material from that chapter from the text twice. organized and doesnt check homework. not HUGE on attendance so you can miss a couple times and she is so easy to understand, she explains stuff like you are in high school. TAKE HER.

Class is easy. Do the homework, read over your notes a little, and ask questions and you'll be fine. I don't understand why some people don't like her - I thought her class was decent.

She's a nice person, if you get on her good side. Moves VERY fast and is hard to keep up with you take about 4-5 pages of notes every class. If you go to her on office hours she'll help but not very well. LOADS of homework every night & doesnt really go over it the next day. quiz every friday & her tests are impossible. very hard grader

She is nice to some people and mean to others. Sometimes says the wrong thing in class and doesn't correct herself. Then if you ask her about it she makes you feel stupid. I saw her in her office and she treated me very poorly. Don't take her.

for me, this class was horrible. i felt like every time i had a question, she took it as a personal attack. she seemed angry every time i didn't understand something...like it was my fault, or something. and there are just waaay too many grades to keep on top of.

She's a fair teacher. If you're good with Math, you'll be fine. However, if you're having trouble with a topic, you'll be lost as she moves very fast through examples. Homework everynight. Tests are somewhat hard. But she does care about how you do. It's a toss up.
