Comment:
Easy class, all you have to do is the mymathlab homework over and over prior to test and get an easy 100+ on it. She gives 5 extra credit points on every test if you do the hw. She basically gives you the exam, some were different numbers, but just practice and its am easy A. Also just buy my math lab, never used book. Plus it's online with MML.

Comment:
The professor went over every bit of material that was covered on the tests and exams. HW and quizzes were all on MyMathLab, but she monitored that closely and added 5 points per test if you got 90% or above on that test's HW. She encourages questions and participation, and if you're struggling, will suggest an outside tutor. Great teacher!

Comment:
She explains concepts simply and always asks for questions. Copy down the examples she does in class and you should be fine doing the HW and quizzes. If you do all HW in MathXL with a 90+ you get 5 bonus pts on each test. One of the best math teachers I've had. If you come to class and do the work you'll be fine.

Comment:
I had her for PreCalc, the class was very boring. Whatever she taught was from MathXL. For tests, I would prepare questions from MathXL and you will walk out with an A. But her final was tough, I barely passed with a B. Overall, her class is easy.

Comment:
She will not go over the questions that will be on the test, in fact she purposely avoids them. 90% of this class is you learning from experience on Math XL, beyond that she picks favorites, Ive seen two different kids walk up in the middle of a test for help. If you dont understand she wont help you, but she will mock you.BORING! Grades too harsh.

Comment:
Horrible teacher! She refused to work with me on several occasions and also wouldn't answer emails. If all teachers where like this one then the education system would be in shambles. She teaches in a very boring monotone, and if you don't get it then it is your problem. She also seems to play favorites.

Comment:
I truly despise taking precalculus with this woman! My first college math class, and it is very discouraging. There is NO ATTENDANCE POLICY...but she will practically fail you if you dont come to her class and listen to her, not to mention she's completely boring! Maybe shes a better teacher for older people.

She teaches Algebra in an orderly way. Just go to class, take notes, do the homework & online quizzes. She will answer any questions you have. She explains mathematical definitions in plain English for us non-math types.

How can you not make a good grade with Professor Burleson? She offers extra credit prior to every test (you just have to be in class when she hands them out!) and she gave us TEN POINTS of extra credit on the final! That's a letter grade!!! I <3 Professor Burleson!

I pesonally had no problem with this teacher, but if you are a student that needs extra help to catch the concepts of math then she wouldn't be good for you. She didnt seem to be very helpful to students that had a hard time with math.

her notes are very clear...just do homeworks, study guides, you'll pass her class with at least a B...strictly on grading...you have to earn it...she doesn't give out passing grade easily...you'll appreciate her once you take MIKE ALBANESE

Works a lot of problems in class, works homework problems - best way to learn - working the problems. Doesn't waste time writing theorems on the board, they are already in the book (you can read it). Very hard working teacher you can learn a lot from.

I think she is a good teacher. She makes hard material easy. Gives you a review sheet b4 test and the test is exactly almost the same. She is strict on grading though.
