The best math teacher I have ever had. I'm not great at math but she made it so simple. She is extremely helpful during office hours and I wish I could have her every quarter.

MATH 8A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: B-

Best professor ever to start off my freshman year of college! Although I got a B- in the class, she was still extremely helpful in her office hours. She really cares about her students passing the class, moreover getting through college. She's one of the best professors I have had. I love Professor Fay!

MATH004 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She's a great professor. Show up to class everyday and discussion section and you should be good. No need to buy text book just get math XL code. I never opened the text book once. If you have any questions she always holds office hours after class which is very helpful. All material on test and quizzes are come from the homework; so do it!

I highly recommend taking her class. You have try really hard not to fail her class. She is extremely helpful in office hours as well as her lectures. Her goal is to make sure you pass so do your work and ask questions when you fall behind.

MATH1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

The class is a bit tough only on the first week. It can easily become from the worst class, to the best/easiest class if you attend regularly to her lectures and the discussions. Also, she is very approachable once you start attending your office hours and she is friendly. Getting an A is easy by doing so, possibly even an A+ if you're consistent.

No need for a textbook, but you need to go to lectures and discussion. Material gets harder. Speed of class is very fast, so don't fall behind on the hw assignments. Expect to be doing math every day. Make use of office hrs and Ta's!

Math5 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

The professor was nice but the class seemed to just get harder and harder.Out of everyone that took this class she was the only professor who assigned both written and online homework.That was kind of annoying so try to keep up with it all.Tests were hard, she always kind of downplayed how difficult it would be. She also hosted weekend study groups

Fay is seriously a TERRIBLE professor. I rarely attended lecture because she was so awful. The midterms aren't hard as long as you understand the math. Make sure you study everything for the final though :/ . She has an annoying laugh, and seems super fake. Suggestions: skip lecture and just do the homework!

Sandi Fay is a very helpful teacher. If you go to class and additional lecture, you will understand the material. In addition, she also offers a tremendous number of office hours you can attend to get help from her if you don't understand the material. She's very passionate about teaching her students!

I dislike this professor because of the way she makes her tests. What she stresses on the homework is not stressed on the test, but the 1 or 2 homework questions that we do out of 300 are stressed on the test. IT MAKES ME MAD AHHHHHHHH

Math8A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Her lectures are understandable and if you're lost, she's always willing to help during her office hours. She has a genuine interest in student's success in that she provides some second chances and advice to her students. Midterms are straightfoward and are based off the study guide/lectures. I highly recommend her.

She's a great professor! I really enjoyed her class because she shows she cares a lot about how we do and stuff. She sets up reviews before a midterm or final which is very helpful. Visit her in office hours or sit in the front and she will definitely remember you. She's also really nice and you will like her class.
