By far Ronda Lively is the best college professor I've had so far. I struggle with math and the way she teaches her class makes it possible for everyone to learn it and do well. She structures her class perfectly and doesn't overwhelm you with a bunch of chapters to read and homework to do. She's also very nice and smart!

Ronda is such a sweetheart! Just take her! She's so nice and fashionable lol. I learned a lot in her class but the few times I didn't show up to class definitely showed on my quizzes. Do the homework, which she doesn't grade til the end, and you'll be fine. She will work with you and answer any questions you have. Also, snacks ;)

One of the most helpful teachers I've had. Attendance wasn't required, homework assigned but for a grade, sometimes used textbook, very clear on what needs to be done.

Ronda is an amazing teacher. Plain and simple. She knows how to teach and she knows what works. I absolutely loved spending time in her class as she is a fun, charismatic, genuine individual that cares about her students. Learning all math concepts was easy when she answers all questions and provides the student with every opportunity to succeed.

She is very helpful and there for you when you need it. Very understanding, and friendly. I wish the homework was graded to help show me what I did wrong. She goes through material quickly, so be ready to keep up. Don't fall behind or it can mess you up (at least for me it did). I would take her class again.

One of the most organized and helpful professors I have EVER had! She has so many resources available to students (practice tests, notes), and the grading system is very clear. I've never liked math before, but her class quickly became my favorite. She gives very good feedback, and as long as you pay attention in class, tests will be a breeze.

She lets you know what is going to be on the tests. She assigns homework but with any math class, especially in college, you can expect that. With school and work both full time I didn't feel exceptionally burdened by her class. I started 112 with another prof but switched into her class even though it was 5 dayswk because she was so helpful.

Ronda is the best math teacher I've had at PCC. She is extremely clear and posts a practice test online before every test. It's extremely easy to study for her class! She doesn't give you excess math assignments to submit (like most math teachers) so you don't waste your time. I never needed the book because she has very organized notes. THE BEST!

Mrs. Lively was truly a blessing when it came to the last math course I needed to take. I asked myself... why have I not known about this instructor before? She made it super easy for me to understand, and I am terrible with mathematics! Wonderful teacher! Make sure you go to class, esp. if you need help and want extremely clear lectures! :)

So Ronda is perfect. I am two math classes ahead of mth111 but I couldn't take the placement test so i got placed with Ronda, and I am so happy I did. Ronda is the best math teacher i have ever had and would have her teach me every level of math if I could. She taught me things in this trig class that would have made calc a million times easier.

Ronda Kingstad- now known Ronda Lively- is the Math dept chair at PCC. I feel very fortunate to have her as my teacher this term, and hope to have her in future classes; though I live closer to a different PCC campus. She is able to simply & logically answer any question. My first math class in 14 years had me quite nervous but has been enjoyable.

Comment:
While the teacher seems to be very knowledgeable and nice, the class was taught very poorly. The tests consisted of only a few difficult problems that were worth large amounts of points and were graded way too harshly. Even if you solved the problem correctly, she would still deduct points for not strenuous detail. Do not take math from her.

Ronda gives clear lecture and happily answers any questions. Very friendly and approachable. Drops lowest test(of 3) and lowest take home quiz(of 5). Gives partial credit and grades less harshly than other professors. Very happy that I took her. Bonus: total MILF. ;-)

Comment:
Rhonda is friendly and very approachable, with a solid understanding of calculus. Homework was not checked, but five take-home quizzes made up a large portion of the grade. Unlike past math teachers, her tests were shorter but still hard enough. I usually understand math well, but have a problem finishing long tests.

I thought Rhonda was a very fair profesor. I got an A on every test except for the Logs test. Ended up with a B but i should have studied harder. Her tests are not overly hard and I personally like her teaching style. She may not be for everyone but I didnt mind her =)
