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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

math is a difficult subject for me which is why i recieved the grade i did. sharon did her best to help and really wants her students to learn. she tries to be fair and all her practice tests are basically copies of her exams. she was very nice and excited about life in general. althought i didnt pass i would take her again!

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.

she is a great professor, can be confusing in explaining problems and can go off topic sometimes. She can make math hard to understand

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

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.

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.

She gets confused by the material easily and takes the hardest, most confusing rout to an answer. She goes really slow in the beginning of the semester and spedns way too much time talking about her kids and other BS. At the end of the class she RACES through the mertiel and does not answer questions. Final is 1/3 so if you have a B you can get a C

Honestly, she tries to teach it as clear as possible. I had hard times understanding the material and even the notes were vague. Even reading the book it helped, but still didn't correspond to what was taught.
