MTH 152 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A
"Skip class? You won't pass." "Pop quiz master" "Better Like Group Projects"

She is a decent professor, but does not necessarily "teach" her students. She introduces the material, then leaves it up to you and your table group to figure it out from there. When you ask a question, she makes you feel stupid that you needed to ask it. After tests and quizzes, she has said things such as "I don't know how you guys got that."

MTH 152 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She is awesome. Exactly like an elementary school teacher. Obsessed with cats and makes not so funny jokes but they do make you giggle. Don't need to buy the textbook. As long as you show up and take the quizzes and make a "cheat sheet" for the exam you'll do fine. The course pack is used every single day.

Martha is great! She is just like a elementary math teacher. So sweet, clear, and helpful. She even emails you what you missed when you miss class! Her class is very helpful and I can see myself using all this information in my future.

Martha is an interesting lady! She doesnt really teach the material that much and just has you do a lot of worksheets to learn. The material isnt hard so this isnt too big of a deal. We didnt use the textbook but used a course pack you had to get at the Kopy Korner.

Love Martha! She is hilarious and makes math as fun as it can be. I wish I could take more classes with her because she always makes me smile and puts me in a better mood. Great lady :)

Such a cute little lady and makes funny quotes, but she's a little bit critical at times. I brought in a drink once and she criticized the color of it; she also sticks to her rules and that's it, she won't be flexible for you as an individual and isn't very understanding. But overall, she is a very good teacher.

mth151 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Frank is awesome! She has you sit in groups and try to teach each other - which is what the teaching mathematics class is about. She tells the most funny stories and is real enjoyable. And notes can be used on the quizzes and formula sheets for exams.

One of my favorite classes! She does make you teach yourself some concepts, but that helps you remember it better and she is always willing to help. She gives unannounced quizzes which are not hard, but you have to be in class to take them. I would definately take a class with her again.

MTH553 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is nice and does try. She is kind of out there but class is easy. She doesn't sit and lecture at you, you do work in class. TONS of in class quizzes but she drops the lowest 2 so not too bad. I like her, the class could be worse.

MTH151 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She drives me nuts but her class is REALLY easy. Homework never gets turned in and I never did it. I got an A on every test no problem. You basically teach yourself but it's concepts we've known since elementary school. I've heard she's the easiest of all the 151 classes. There's no reason you can't get an A with her.

MTH152 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

One of the worst math professors I have ever had! She is only there to teach the subject of math...not to teach her students. Actually...she doesn't even teach...she makes you get into groups and teach yourself...you know what that does for students with math anxiety?? She is not helpful and will not give you extra time to complete a math test that

so there is A LOT of busy work in this class, but homework isnt necessary to do and you dont have to turn it in..i never did any of it and still got an A in the class. all quizzes are pretty much open book/notes and for tests you can use a sheet of notes front and back. overall pretty easy class but it wasnt my favorite

doesnt really explain anything in class, just gives you work to do. in class quizzes, homework isnt required, and several group projects. Makes a big deal about the midterm and it really isn't that bad. If you aren't good at probability/statistics, be prepared to teach yourself.

Her class is easy if you do all the work, and the manipulatives and the way she teaches them, (CATS) are very interesting. Tests are long, but not hard, and overall it is a good class!

MTH 151 and 152 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She is by far the best teacher for either of these classes, however she is much better in 151. She is pretty anal in 152 and tends to be much more strict and moody! All in all she helps as much as she can, and makes it pretty easy for you to get a good grade!

She is a very helpful professor. Her class is SO easy, as long as you attend. She hands out a study guide before each exam, which is very helpful.

MTH 152 is a lot harder than 151. She is a lot pickier in 152. She still gives projects to do out of class. Her tests are kinda tricky, but she is very nice and helpful if you ask questions.

She is by far the best teacher to take for either 151 or 152. Get to use a sheet with formulas on it for the test. Final was open book and note. Very nice lady.

Amazing class! She makes it fun to learn different ways to teach basic math. Even if you don't like math you will like her..and if you don't like the class then you shouldn't be going for elem education. You do need the book, plus you have to buy an extra course pack..but you do use the manipulatives almost everyday.
