The material can be challenging, but Kiehl structures the class in such a way that it is very difficult to do poorly. It's also refreshing to have a professor who happens to be a human being and not an academic robot.

She does a great job of explaining things and her test are really straight forward. She bases her test from hw problems in the textbook, so if you do your homework you'll have no problem acing the tests.

Professor Kiehl did a solid job teaching Calc II. Granted, the stuff can get terribly dry, but she teaches it, and won't leave you in the dark on anything. She also clearly explains how you will be tested, which is a +.

She is a good teacher, and she is a nice teacher, but as a person she isn't so nice.

Kiehl is definitely my favorite professor here. Concepts are explained extremely well, there's no homework, and tests are pretty easy (and there's a lot of extra credit). Kiehl often gives very big hints about what is going to be on the test and I always felt very prepared going into them. Kiehl is also very nice and helpful as a person.

Calc 2 has changed its structure. There is in-class material and quizzes, as well as "skills" quizzes that cover material at a different pace (a little confusing). She teaches integration well and the quizzes were easy. Lines and planes were hard to understand. Does a lot of in class examples and is helpful during at office hours. Go to class!
