Comment:
Dr. Berk is a professor who truly wants all of her students to succeed. She is super accessible outside of class and has many assignments to help boost your grade. WebAssign homework is very time-consuming and worth a decent chunk of your grade, but it is helpful. She's super funny and makes math fun. Would definitely take her course again!

Had her for Math 231. She is a very good professor. As long as you pay attention in class and do the Web Assign homework then you will do fine. The exams were the hardest part of this class. Strongly suggest going to her office hours if you need help. She is very accessible outside of class. Definitely recommend this class and this professor.

Comment:
I had taken Calculus in my senior year (so it was fresh in my mind). Dr. Berk is an awesome professor. Even if you never took calculus before, she takes it slowly so you will understand the calculus concepts even if you have never taken it before. This class relies heavily on WebAssign, as that is where we did our homework and tests.

Dr. Berk is a must if you are taking 231. She is very funny, and really cares about if the students are learning the material. The class environment is very relaxed, and she always finds out how to make a lesson interesting. The only problem would be the WebAssign homework, which she changes the due dates based on how the classes are progressing.

Dr. Berk is a remarkable professor. To teach a difficult course so well and make it sound so simple is her way of teaching. Meet with her anytime you need, she will always make time for you, even if its last minute. Every person needs to take Dr. Berk for Calc 1, the class average was so much higher than all of the other calc 1 courses here.

Professor Berk is a great teacher who wants you to succeed. Obviously you have to put in the work to receive the grade to want for the class. Moreover, make sure to pay attention in class, and review your exams on webassign before doing a retake.

Dr. Berk is a great teacher. She cares about the students and wants everyone to do well. There is been weekly homework, four quizzes, two exams and one final. If you ask questions she will answer them and will try her best to get you to understand. Do the work assigned and ask her questions when you don't understand something and you will pass.

Dr. Berk's lectures are some of the best. She knows the material is tough but she wants everyone in class focused and ready to learn. She presents lots of examples and provides plenty of handouts for students to follow along in class and she also encourages group work.

Sooo nice! She really wants you to do well and will help you as much as she can as long as you make the effort to see her. She has weekly reviews at her office hours and holds extra reviews before tests. Weekly homework and a lot of quizzes but they honestly help your grade in the end. Tests aren't too bad if you look at the green book. UD Capture

Dr. Berk is extremely nice and does what she can with a difficult course. 2 tests and final which are all multiple choice but kinda hard. 9 quizzes and lowest grade is dropped, attendance is optional but if you want to pass this class you should go.

She is a great professor who truly cares strongly about her student's success. Although this class is pretty difficult, she does a truly amazing job at teaching it. At the beginning of each class, she reminds everyone of what is due next. She makes it easier on students to remember to complete their assignments and motivates them to do so.

Professor Berk is one of the sweetest teachers I've had while being at Delaware. She explains all concepts step-by-step, as if you were learning it for the very first time, which makes it very easy to learn. Her enthusiasm and small jokes keep class fun and focused. She answered emails quickly and with a lot of detail. She made this class so easy.

Loved her! Clearest notes ive ever taken in my life, answers questions so well and is personable. The material is of course difficult for someone who isn't a math wiz (like myself) but she does a great job at making it as clear as possible. Don't buy the textbook, just the axis codes if possible. I didn't even open my books and couldnt sell back

Doctor Berk was an incredible professor! She is so sweet and cares about her students! This class was not very hard, but the 3 tests, which everyone in MATH114 has to take (not just her section) can be tricky. There is online HW which isn't hard and 4 quizzes but the lowest gets dropped. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

One of the best math professors for precalc. Prof Berk wants to see you do well and holds review sessions before each exam. Do the online HW and make sure you understand it. Questions from practice exams are very similar if not the same questions that appear on the actual exams. Got a B.
