one of the nicest professors on campus! she's always pleasant to talk to and will try to help you any way she can. i had dreaded taking calculus before but she was able to make the class fun and the material understandable & digestible. couldn't have asked for a better calculus professor. my advice?

"There for you" "Would take again"

Ms. Sherry is super nice! She tries really hard to make sure you can get a satisfactory grade. Pay extra attention to the class before the exam, since she will go through all the similar questions you will encounter during the exam. If you are willing to put in a little amount of your time and energy, it is not possible that you can't get an A.

MTH-271 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

If you are not a math person, just take her courses. She knows how to teach hard subjects easily. there are 5 exams and the final, but if you get great scores, you can drop two exams (one exam and the final). If you come to the lectures, there are variosu extra credit opportunities. if you attend the lectures regularly, you can get A or B.

"Clear grading criteria" "Gives good feedback"

Great professor. Definitely recommend to anyone who hasn't taken Calculus before. If you do the homework and in-class work, you should be prepared for the tests. She's very helpful in case you don't understand something.

"Big time extra credit" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Would take again"

Ms. Sherry is a fantastic professor. She is great at teaching the material. She does tend to move fast in her lectures but she is willing to help anyone. Usually there is group work at the end of class in which she gives 3 or 4 points of extra credit for the next test. Do the homework and practice problems and you should be set for her tests.

"Skip class? You won't pass." "Big time extra credit" "Participation matters"

Prof. Sherry was able to make Calc more fun and less pain-incuding than i originally expected. does group reviews before tests and then gives you a bunch of extra credit pts just for participating. she may move fast but is good at simplifying it down to bite-sized pieces so the concepts are easier to digest. also a genuinely nice lady!!

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

Great Professor. Her lectures are fast, but she keeps going over the material each class so by the test you understand it. If you pay attention in class, do the hw and the review, you can definitely do well on the tests. 5 tests, one will be dropped and a final. She does give partial credit which really helps . Definitely recommend her!

"Skip class? You won't pass." "Clear grading criteria" "Big time extra credit"

hands down best calc teacher at nova. I failed calc twice and I have currently an average of 100% on the exams we've taken so far. I barley study too. She gives extra credit and homework is online on MyMathLab. She's very sweet and does move fast but if you ask she'll explain and is very sweet about it.

MTH 271 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: A

Amazing professor. Really explains everything with powerpoints and always answers questions. You can drop the lowest test grade and if you get a 90% or higher you don't have to take the final. Always promptly answered emails. An A is definitely possible. Calculus is hard but she makes it as easy as it can be.

Nice teacher but cannot teach. She goes really fast and does not explain anything. Half the class was lost. Hand writing and slides are hard to read.

I was scared of Calculus but the class was decently easy. Tests are short and similar to homework, she drops the lowest test grade and not an excessive amount of homework! I would take her again.

I love professor Sherry! She gets her notes from my math lab but she explains everything in depth. She is very easy and makes sure that everyone understands what she's teaching. Homework is due the day of the test, her test are also easy. After she teaches she makes you work in groups and makes everyone introduce themselves. TAKE HER!

She's a really nice lady and she gives lots of extra credit. Plenty of time to do homework. But she teaches kind of fast, so make sure you get help if you feel lost. I personally didn't use the textbook at all.

She is a great teacher. Would recommend her for someone that has never taken Calculus. She goes kind of fast during her lectures gives study guides and is very helpful. Know the study guides and you will be okay for her tests (her tests aren't that bad) Textbook is used for homework and homework is due on day of tests. Take her!
