Very good professor and will keep your interest the whole lecture. Going to lectures will definitely help your grade.

Prof. Mitchell was decent. She kept lectures relaxed, mostly-informative, and non-mandatory, but I found my TA to be much more helpful. Exams were 10 multiple-choice questions, which I wasn't a huge fan of. For Eng. Math II specifically: DON'T BUY THE BOOK; JUST GET THE CD. It costs significantly less and is more up-to-date.

She is an excellent teacher hands down. The book, however, is strife with errors, spotty with wording, unclear in examples, and outrageously overpriced. If you go to lecture and simply write what she does, and think about it you will be fine. Without doubt one of the best engineering math II professors at the University of Iowa.

Tough class but she is a great, helpful teacher. Use her in combination with the Math Lab and you will be fine

Really cared about her students! Earned the name of the "math mom". Really made multivariable calc 2 easy to understand. Answered questions with clarity.

Very helpful. Always willing to work with students outside of class, encourages students to go beyond the course material. Use of Mathematica can be tricky for those not inclined to computers. If you keep up with the work and ask for help when you need it, you'll be fine.

I feel Colleen did an excellent job teaching her first graduate level course. She was cheerful and friendly and always willing to answer questions. She inspires me as a future professor. I hope my future students learn as much from me as I learned from her.

Colleen did an excellent job both in class with clear, concise lectures and outside of class with copious office hours and an abundance of opportunity for pre-arranged meeting times. The only class that I have taken in quite some time where the lecture was more than sufficient for doing the assigned work; she gets an 'A' from me.

Colleen is always very concerned about the progress of her students. She has a great attitude in the classroom and has gone to great lengths to find a proper balance between a challenging grad level course and an understandable one. As an instructor, I am impressed by how well she did teaching her first grad level course.

Very enthusiastic about the material and about the students' performance and well-being. Ample extra credit ops, great communication, clear and detailed lecturing style, and good exam feedback. Extremely accessible and very friendly. She even brought bagels and baked us scones! Although she is a new teacher, she shows promise as an educator.
