"Tough Grader" "Tests are tough"

Terrible lectures could never hear or understand what she wrote. Unable to explain answers to simple questions without making it overly confusing.

Math 1A03 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This prof is brilliant, she's smart as hell and makes you understand the basic concepts before really getting into the hard stuff. One problem is that the practise midterms are way easier than the actual ones so watch out with your confidence levels

1D06 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

When I went to her office hours to ask for clarification on a topic and she insisted that I go to ANY other TA because she didn't feel like talking to me. Isn't providing assistance what office hours are for? Not just being brushed off and asked to go somewhere else?

She just went over examples and proofs, all of which you can find in the textbook. Midterms and exam were EXTREMELY fair though.

She is the best teacher for MATH 1A03. VERY helpful and sympathetic, she is the sort of prof. that cares about her students. Not to mention that the lady is smart as hell! Try to get her for 1st year... you won't regret it!

Overall, she was okay. Brilliant lady, lectures a little boring at times, test and exam were fair, assignments crazy hard - only doable when working in groups. Overall she really pushed for working with others and getting help. Do that and you're fine

Math2R03 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I really enjoyed Professor Haskell as a teacher. I think especially for 2R03, you need to use your resources effectively to do well, and you need to study hard. She is extrememely helpful and knowledgable and I think people should see this side in her. It's easy to blame a challenging course on the prof. It's most likely the students fault

Math1b2r Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I was in her 1b03 class in my first year, she did great and the projects were interesting. But in 2R03, you gotta watch out and think again, very low average in 2r03 and projects were hard

I dont know where the negative comments are coming from. She is really nice lady, she sits down with students and spends so much time helping them with course selection and advice. I found her flexible and accomodating and she was never ever rude or sarcastic or arrogant. She is more fair than most other profs teaching math 2R03

MATH2R03 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Assignments were, in general, terrible. She asked us about things we'd never heard about in our lives, and expected us to use them. Tests were straightforward, fairly graded. I found it hard to learn from Dr. Haskell, just because it doesn't seem like her heart is in the material. Sadly, she has effectively killed my interest in Linear Algebra.
