MATH 211 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A
"Tests are tough"

She teaches very simple examples in class that don't prepare you well enough for tests or homework. Sometimes she doesn't even cover a topic before it's assigned for homework. She gave feedback on the first couple homeworks, but not after that. She really doesn't like it when people are late and was a bit rude at times. Exams were hard.

MATH 220 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A
"Gives good feedback" "Would take again" "Respected by students"

I honestly love Dr. Kalder. I took her for MATH 120 too because she's just that amazing. Be prepared for a lot of constructive criticism, but don't take it to heart. Everything she tells you is only to make you into a better math teacher. Love her, and so excited to take her again!

MATH 120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This class is challenging for sure. And Dr. Kalder does offer a lot of criticism. However, I really feel like I came out of that class and learned how to approach difficult problems. She is willing to look over portfolios before you hand them in. She is very honest, but I feel like it made me better at math. Definitely taking her again.

math 120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

The hardest class i have ever taken. she plays favorites a lot. what she wants in portfolios are not clear at all, and when you go to see her she acts like your portfolio is fine but then you fail it. she is not afraid to speak her mind or let you know that you are making a mistake. if possible take the other professor who teaches math 120.

MATH544 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

If you want to be challenged and want to end the class feeling you really learned something, then you want her as a professor. If you are just paying your money for credits, look elsewhere...

ive seen a wide range of hern personality... one moment she wants to help you succeed and the next she is too busy to talk to you... if she likes you you'll be fine otherwise watch out she picks favorites

One of the best math teachers I know. She really knows math, and knows how to share it with others.

math ed Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

There have been times when I've seen her WRONG on a specific mathematical issue but she wouldn't let a student debate it. She picks her favorites in a way that is just shameless. Has mocked students in front of the class. You can pick up a lot of good teaching advice from her, though.

several Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Robin does play favorites. She promised a sub-group within the class that she would provide differentiation for us which she did not follow through with. When she disliked a student their life was hard in her class.

very biased. If you dont get on her good side immediately she will make things very difficult. She will grade you harsher and also nitpick, she can also get verbally abusive. Try to get on her good side for your sake.
