Comment:
She's a good professor but has very strict grading guidelines, gives a ton of h.w, and is pretty straight forward on tests. She gives extra credit which is a great exchange for all the points she takes off for petty insignificant crap. If you do take her just make sure you ask a lot of questions and really pay attention to her comments on the h.w

Very helpful with questions after class or in the Hard math cafe. Hard to follow at times but is a decent choice and is not the worst teacher for sure.

Very nice and helpful lady, but the best math teacher she is not. She is unclear when she teaches and her quizzes and tests are set up weird. I wouldn't really recommend her as a teacher but she's definitely not the worst choice, either.

Comment:
She is so helpful and genuinely cares about her students. If you don't understand something in class she will keep going over it tell you get it and if you still don't understand something she will go over it with you during her office hours. She even stays longer than her office hours in order to help you.

She's very helpful and it's obvious that she cares for her students. She's willing to stay beyond her normal office hours to help a student in need. She's a demanding instructor, but the topics she covers will stick with you.

At first I had to get used to her teaching style but after I did it was pretty good in her class. All you have to do is attend class and do your homework and you'll most likely pass her class.

Comment:
Hated her. She is an absolute scatter brain and does not know how to teach. She would always "throw things out" when solving a problem on the board and wouldn't explain herself. Quizzes are given once a week on the book material. Tests are really hard. Final is a killer. Don't expect to pass. I got a C, and excelled before her.

Comment:
Mrs. Syda is a class act. She could teach Andy Warhol how to integrate, and he'd love her for it. If you don't quite get something, just ask her. If you're too nervous to speak up in class, her office door is always open.

Comment:
Mrs. Syda was great. I found her to be very helpful. This is not high school, if you need help and ask she will do all she can for you. If you sit in the back, you don't ask for help and you don't come to class well dah you are going to flunk. I found her to be interesting. I could not have passed the class had I not asked for help.

She explains why we do the things we were told to do in grade school. She shows you different ways of doing the problem so you can find the way that fits you but also lets you know what you have to look forward to in the next math class.

A good teacher if you are either good in math or kept all of your notes. Seemed to have little grip on the reality that most of students work while attending school.

If you work for it, you can get an A or B. She explains things in different ways until you understand. She is always willing to help if you are confused. If you get a bad grade it is on you, because she will give you all the extra help you need in the Hard Math Cafe.

Ms. Syda surpasses the standards of a teacher. She give 150% of herself to her students. If you want to succeed in Math you will if you put in the work and with Ms. Syda's help.
