MAT 231 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She's not very clear about anything, and uses random examples that don't help while rambling on about why those examples aren't really true or aren't really helpful. She only grades some problems on assignments- one wrong wrecks your grade on it. Impossible to focus. Which is a shame, because she's an otherwise very friendly and cheerful person.

She is extremely nice and very helpful. Sometimes her projects are a little over the top, but if you work hard enough, you will do fine.

math114 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She is the worst teacher I have ever had. Impossible to focus. she just talks and talk without ever stopping for questions. she laughs at her own dumb joke and is as old as dust. No help and her class averages for tests is always an F. if you get her transfer out immediately.

MAT114 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This was my least favorite class I had this semester. The homework was usually irrelevant to what were learning and her examples were not nearly as hard as quiz/test questions. I worked hard for the grade I got and I was surprised it ended up being an A. This class is challenging to pay attention because it is extremely boring.

CSC117 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This class is so ridiculously difficult for an intro level course. Her assignments really are impossible unless you've had coding experience prior to this. She gives an assignment and doesn't completely explain how to do it until after it's due. I regret taking this course, although she is a nice woman. She doesn't give much help either.

CSC117 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Had some previous coding experience. Didn't help. Most ridiculous "Intro" course ever. Not only were her assignments impossible to complete using only what she had taught us, but the guidelines for them were ridiculous and they had no real-world application. Even if your program works, if you don't do it how she wants it's wrong in her eyes.

MAT114 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I literally took her for a week and then peaced out before add/drop week was over. She is as old as a fossil. Throughout the class students will just get up and leave because they cannot take it anymore. She seems really nice though and appeared to be better at teaching computer science when she was a substitute for my class one week.
