Comment:
Bev is a wonderful professor who is extremely talented in visual aid during lectures. She can go a bit slow or fast sometimes depending on the topic but is always willing to clarify if you ask her. Her exams and evaluations are fairly difficult so prepare hard for them and try not to fall behind! Especially for vector calculus near the end.

Essentially, if you fall behind on the material the chances of you doing poorly is very likely.

Comment:
Great teacher. She conveys information clearly and seems to really want people to understand the material. She is obviously excited about math. She is available after class and during tutorials for questions. It is a hard class, but it is fair. If you work hard (ie. do the practice questions) and go to class, you will do decently.

Assignments were incredibly long and moderately difficult. Midterm was long but somewhat fair. Final was really long and pretty difficult. Her proofs are hand-wavy but her explanations are pretty clear. Also, her drawings are incredible.

She's a good prof but expects a LOT out of her students. If you like the subject she's teaching then rush to the class but if you don't then avoid her like the devil.

Overall, she is a great professor. Her lectures are extremely clearly and helpiful. Her voice makes people feel very comfortable. However, there are certain points that I don't like. First, she is completely unavailable outside the lectures, i.e. she has no office hours. Also, if you sit in her classes as a visitor, she does not like you.

She is not a very nice professor when it comes to people asking questions - doesn't like when people have laptops in tutorials, and goes slowly at times. Always makes tutorials stay late, but she's good at what she does.

Comment:
Poor professor for tutorials--would often come in late and keep people late and snap (or speak condescendingly) to students who asked questions. Catered mostly to students in her section of the course. Others said she was a good prof.. I never saw it. Didn't even show up for the pre-exam review she scheduled.

I did pretty well on 2 midterms. And also well on the assignments. Before the final my mark was 75% around. I felt that the final was not so hard. But the final mark of mine was 65%. I thought is because I missed 2 assignments. But I personally think you should follow the course outline to give student their marks. Unfair prof!

Comment:
Took 136 and 138 with her, and got A+ for both. However, I see that she is not as good as she look or people says. Definitely she is better than average, but I would not take her if there was a real good professor on the term I took these courses
