math 3 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She goes very fast. You really have to updated with math 131. She expects you to know the material she's going over, She makes the class seem easy but once you lose focus or a day you feel like you missed the whole semester. She's a great teacher, i just couldn't keep up with her.

Her teaching is so clear and thorough you feel like a genius taking her exams! I took her class 2 years ago and so much has stuck with me that I had to come here and recommend her 100%. She is awesome!

Math 5A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Her class is very easy. Her notes/lectures are online. She goes over some of the notes and do the homework with you. She is very anal when it comes to the notebook for her class. She gives you hints on what to expect for her tests. Her tests are straight forward. She even tells you what is going to be on the test and final. Wish she taught 5B.

Math 5A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Felt like I was taking an online class. She made videos of each example and put them on canvas, which is fine, but she only uses the videos. No hand written in class stuff, except every once in a while. Her tests are straight forward, but if you don't do work the way she wants it you lose a lot of points. Also makes it seem you have to grind math.

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

Sharon's class was not the best. I think she has a good heart but I didn't appreciate her philosophy on math, which to me seemed was founded in her stories about taking math in college. She continuously repeated that she grinded her way through school and I feel that she expects her students to follow the same philosophy.

Math 3 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Very thankful for this teacher she is extremely helpful answers questions online, if you don't get it she will post videos on YouTube. I admire her hard work and dedication, she absolutely loves what she teaches. Goes over practice test, 1% cotta xtra credit, xtra credit on quizzes. She can be a little tough on grading her exams.

Math5A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Her class is simple and straightforward. She bases her quizzes and exams off of her notes (her quizzes are only one question). Her video notes are really helpful! 2% extra credit if you've written all her notes the way she wants em. EASY A if you do the work.

MATH131 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Would definitely recommend to take her. Trust me, she's extremely helpful esp. her notes. She's even willing to give 1% if you do table of contents. It's still something. She's so sweet and caring. Willing to answer any questions. Very patient. Easy A in her class. Exams exactly like her practice exams. Get her!

Math5B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Very fair professor with a great personality. Test are extremely simple and if your this far in math classes you know what to expect from this type of class. Homework is clearly assigned with her website posting them and their due dates. Over all great professor that could get a little edgy yet deliver a great lecture for any math student.

mth15 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

MATH5AB Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Took her 5A when she had her open note test policy. But now she has changed it to closed note and no calculator. (Still drops lowest test score & final is now worth 30% and not 50%) This is quite a fair change since her tests are now much easier and she gives you hints prior to the test date. She has improved in her lectures then I took her for 5A.

MATH9 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She's horrible at teaching the material, but genuinely wants you to learn. She has a very nice attitude and does tell a lot of life stories. Though, I couldn't stand her teaching, she was bearable. HORRIBLE final though, she realized herself that it was even hard for her to complete it. Does get lost in her lectures.

Math5A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Easy teacher. 5 tests, lowest dropped. Open note tests. bunch of quizzes. Do the practice tests, check the online message boards. However, final is worth 50% of grade and is closed notes. but if you haven't been relying on your notes during the test, the final is a piece of cake. Not an automatic A, but just study. Easy teacher, for me anyways.

Math5A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Drops lowest test score. Tests are open notes and she wants why the answer is true or correct. Few quiz problems before class starts. Final is worth 50% of overall grade. The teacher is pretty bad at teaching. Even though, she has "prepared" for her lectures, she often messes up and confuses herself while lecturing.

Math3 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

very organize teacher.She has plenty of office hours and responds email quickly. Overall I enjoyed this class and the structure of it. Open notes/homework exams (except for final which is 33% of your grade) and she drops the lowest exam score!!! No Calculators, but exams' questions are not hard to calculate...take her!!

Math131 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She's a good honest teacher and has a website with helpful notes and links. She does not use Math XL so don't pay for the code, just get the book cheap. She checks homework weekly. Tests are open note except for the final. Like any math class, you'll have to put the time into learning. I took her for Math 125 as well and would take her again.

Calcu5B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Does not know how to teach calculus. There are so many mistakes on the lecture, and she just talks to the board during the lecture. If you are planning to take CALCULUS, plz plz do not take her cuz you have to learn by yourself. And we waste too much time on writing the useless notes every time. It looks like an English class not a Calculus course.

calc5b Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

like prior comment useless to take calc 5b with her. Couldn't get answers during class and she made many mistakes during lecture. Copied all homework from solutions manual because of poor lecture and had to teach myself. 50% final ruined my overall grade. Should have taken another teacher.
