Comment:
She went out of her way to embarrass students for dumb things like being late on the first day & going to the bathroom, myself included. Class atmosphere was uncomfortable. She is slow to post grades. I've never met such a two-faced professor. Glad she's retiring so I don't have to see her. I haven't disliked a teacher so much since middle school.

Comment:
When you aren't particularly gifted at math, a good teacher can make all the difference. Professor Fackler is not that teacher. Her tests were hard for a gen ed math credit & her personality is akin to professor Umbridge from Harry Potter. If you are great at math you'll be okay but don't take her if not. You will be belittled for asking questions.

I loved Professor Fackler! Although she is retiring and will no longer be at Grand Valley she was still an amazing professor. Professor Fackler was incredibly clear and had answers for all questions. She really understood her students thinking process.

Tish was awesome. I had her for 110 and 122. I hated math before her classes, but now I don't mind it at all. She is a tough grader, but that helps you in the long run. She's super funny and nice, and I am sad this is her last semester. Overall, I would recommend her to everyone if she was going to be here another semester. Thanks Tish! :)

I saw her go out of her way a couple times to humiliate students. It seemed sort of weird and immature. Other than that, she's just okay--not great. I wouldn't take her again.

ALWAYS show every bit of your work on quizzes or you won't get full credit. She's great if she likes you, but don't get on her bad side. Do the assigned homework and you will pass with ease.

Prof Fackler was great! She would stop and clarify anything that you may have a question on and her office hours were always open to anyone who needed a little more help! I would recommend her to anyone who doesn't really understand Math!

I hate math, but this class was honestly great. She's a great professor and truly cares how her students are doing. She makes the classroom atmosphere very comfortable and is super outgoing. Learning the material is super easy because of the way she teaches. Great professor.

literally i only went to class for the tests. she treats everyone like they're in middle school and uses the book heavily. easiest class I've ever taken, so regardless of the prof you'll be fine. she drops your 4 lowest quiz grades and the final grade takes the place of your lowest test. nice lady.

She offer's a lot of extra credit, but she does collect homework randomly and gives out pop quizzes. The test are pretty straight forward, but make sure you pay attention to her lecture because she moves fast!

Prof Fackler has been my best math teacher at Grand Valley. She is very helpful especially if you go to office hours! I would have not done good in this class if it wasn't for going to her office. Drops 2-3 lowest quizzes and replaces lowest test grade w your exam grade if you do better on the final. Very nice lady, highly recommend.

I thought Professor Fackler was a very nice lady, but a horrendous teacher. I never missed class and I studied hard with even a tutor and didn't do well. Tests are extremely hard and she's a VERY hard grader. Wouldn't recommend her as a professor if you want strong grades.

I found to her be a very good mathematics teacher. I am weak in mathematics and she made it easy to understand. Gives bonus points on exams and a decent amount of extra credit. She's a strict grader though. If she asks for the equation remember to include f(x)= cause she's a stickler for that. She gives 12 quizzes and drops 2. Most are group based.

Not the worst professor ever, but not necessarily the greatest. Personality-wise, she's sweet and tries her best to connect to students. Her lectures are thorough and explained well. However, she's a VERY strict grader. She'll randomly hand out quizzes or collect homework, so try not to miss class. Take good notes and seek help when needed.

I hate math, so I took the foremost entry level class to the subject. Professor Fackler was very kind the first week of class. Slowly I started to notice that she was very rude and pretty much called all of us stupid without actually saying the words. Very disrespectful. Don't miss class. Always do your homework, never ask questions.

Prof Fackler is a very nice person and loves to teach math. She expects some level of mathematic skills before taking her class but I thought she was a great teacher. She's very nice and understanding and willing to spend her office time helping students. She gets to know everyone and wants them to do well. I loved her class! Do the homework though

She is an alright prof, but she can be very sassy to the students she does't like. Make sure to take good notes because she makes you feel stupid when you ask questions

Great professor. I highly recommend her for math 110. I was terrible at math in high school and she completely changed that for me.

Extremely easy class, makes things ridiculously easy. Just do the homework and you should be fine. Easy tests and quizzes. Only negative is that she can be condescending to students who ask questions when it's obvious they didn't pay attention to the original lecture.

Eh, not the best teacher in my opinion. I don't recommend her. She doesn't treat you with much respect and is not very good at answering questions. She also collects homework sometimes for a quiz grade. So you better not have any questions on that and get everything right!.....bad method
