Math A172 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B
"There for you" "Would take again" "Skip class? You won't pass."

Don't let her name fool you! I am awful at math, but did fairly well in her course. She is very helpful and REALLY good at ensuring you understand the mathematical processes. She also is very willing to help you outside of class if needed. I took her for two courses because I liked her so much. Definitely recommend her for those bad at math!

A200 Calc Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B+
"Amazing lectures" "Would take again" "There for you"

She is a really great professor. She is very knowledgeable, and teaches the material at a level that everyone can understand. She gives out various extra-credit problems throughout the semester. She is very accommodating, and willing to help her students. I am looking forward to taking Calc. 2 with her next semester. I would recommend taking her.

MATH 172 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Intimidation factor. Grades aren't posted (of course), homework isn't returned. On the tests, if you get a problem incorrect, she chocks it wrong without providing feedback. I certainly don't see what others apparently see. If I could just get my work returned to me (before the test which it involves) and see my grade, I would be much happier.

Math A200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Prof. Harder is the best professor ever. She explains things step by step and relates it to all of your math prior to calculus for a full understanding. Don't hold her accountable, but for my class she held a review study session where she answered tons of questions and recovered all of the material the night before the test which helped me a ton.

Harder is a very good professor. She will explain the content in such a way that you can see the connection between what she is teaching and everything you have learned before which makes it very easy to understand and remember everything. Best math teacher I've had yet.

MATH 201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr Harder is a great professor and she presents the material in a very clear manner. Quizzes are concept based, for example on a quiz she might ask you to set up but not evaluate an integral. Exams are fairly difficult but she gives very a detailed study guide before each test and there is almost always 1 question from the guide on the test

I thought though that she was an amazing teacher. She relates the information to the pre-requisite classes and wraps it together great. She was glad to answer questions outside of class through email or office hours.

VERY nice woman, hands down. Easy class but one thing that bummed me out was the no calculator policy on some parts of her exam. That was honestly the end of the world for me. I would take her again. Very helpful lady.

MATH201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Tons of handouts (use/study) them, test guides are similar to tests. She gives you all the tools to pass, you just have to do your part. Don't hesitate if you have questions, she will go out of her way and explain a theory or finishes the problem you asked about from the book or handout.

Math201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Great professor!! Took Calc 2 from another professor and didn't understand anything and ended up withdrawing from the class. Took Calc 2 from Harder and got an A and understood everything! She teaches you as if you are a child and realizes that you don't remember every math formula ever given to you, great professor I highly recommend her class!!!

I learned trig for the first time in only six weeks over the summer, all thanks to Dr. Harder. Guided you through the material and helped push you along.

MATH272 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Sweet old lady that gives handouts of similar questions to expect on quizzes and tests. However, she was slow at grading & returning work. Would have helped more to see my mistakes before the next test, than after.

Foster would be the only other Calc professor I would even consider here at university of average achievers. There's a reason why I've taken her for math 105, 108 & now 200-201.

Harder is clear, concise, and has straightforward tests. She can sometimes dwell too long on easier material. I took both Calc 1 and 2 with her, and would highly recommend her for higher level math.

Im not a fan. Lots of work to keep up with throughout the semester, quizzes, homework... she grades pretty tough, and makes you feel silly to ask questions sometimes. She talks slow, and explains well, but the study guides are cover everything so its necessary to memorize everything, and they are not all that helpful
