Math 142 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B+

The class in general is really hard so I would highly recommend to take time to sit and take notes during lectures. You will get lost if you skip a class, so don't skip!. She's weird at times but then again that depends on the student.

Zimmerman is really helpful and you can tell she cares for her students. If you ever need help she'll sit with you ad go over things but you also have to put in the work. Visit her during her office hours if you need extra help she'll put things down to give you the attention you need.

She is not a bad teacher just teaches differently. She is very helpful though and wants to help you. She is also understanding she has cut us a lot of slack if we needed extension periods for assignments and quizzes and even the exams. use the tutoring center but overall hse is not a bad teacher. If you need things broken down she is good at that.

Attending class is strongly suggested. Be prepared to spend time at the tutoring center due to the short lecture time (50min). Disorganized at times but will help if you ask. Labs sometimes help but depends on your TA. Prepare to work hard not an easy A or B.

Sat at the front of a huge class (highly recommend) and was impressed by her ability to explain complicated differences between derivatives, second derivatives, differential eq. etc... Her attitude was always good, clear, to the point, encouraging. Fave math teacher so far

Dr. Z would be very helpful sometimes and then totally incomprehensible at others. She was very demeaning to the students in my class, but I think part of it is she just doesn't do well in large classrooms. Very disorganized. I was so glad when I finished this class. Wouldn't recommend her

CALC142 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She is a caring and competent instructor. She took calculus and made it un-scary for a total math dweeb. She took her own time to meet with us in two study sessions prior to every test. Brought cookies for each class (over 140 students).

I have taken two math classes with her and if I learned anything it was because the tutors at the tutoring center showed me or I taught myself. She offers make-up tests if you did horribly the first time but in my opinion shouldn't be a math teacher.

Probably the easiest math professor at NMSU. Take her any chance you can. While the class is not easy, she trys as hard as she can to make it easy. Hw is done in class usually so no need to spend hours every night. She acts like she should be teaching elementary school but its a nice change from the usual hard a**. Even brings cookies time to time

She helps if you show that you care. Sticks her neck out to change grades she knows were product of beaurocratic grading, classic mlc stuff. She puts up well with math Nihilists so if you hate math get this prof.
