Comment:
stats with probability class was not fun... lots of homework that isn't explained in class before you try it. book is not helpful. at times it seemed as though she had no idea if what we were doing was right or wrong until we didn't get the answer she expected, or knew we should have gotten. i would avoid if possible.

Walker is a great professor! Her classes are worth going to, it's definitely stuff you will use in your profession. The work seems to be a lot sometimes, but it's all worth it. Wonderful class, I would definitely recommend it!

Do your ears, brain, sanity, a favor...do not take Professor Walker. So much busy work and her voice is annoyingly harsh. Unnecessarily hard grading too--serious power tripper. She talks about gay lesbian festivals every week, ha. That has nothing to do with math? Hated going to class even though my friends were in it. not cool.

She is very strict about attendance but you learn a lot in class. There is a lot of homework but she does not grade it as long as you try. Exams arent too hard but some projects are annoying.

Comment:
This class was unbearable. I dreaded it every week. The professor is a nice person but not a great teacher she makes you feel like children and the class drags on and on. u spend most of the class doing group work and it still seems like you have been there all day. TONS of busy work homework every class period and tests are actually pretty hard

Comment:
Okay, so she wasn't THAT bad. But honestly, this class was 2 hours and 20 minutes long and each M/W I thought I was in hell. Her voice is so harsh to listen to, she practically yelled at us without even realizing. We also got loads of busy work to do each night. Very sarcastic but treated us like little children. Very annoying course.

Comment:
Although I do go everday, I watch the clock from the moment it begins. She is way too critical and does not tell her students what they can to do to be a better teacher. You basically are treated as middle school students. She does not give good advice with the tutoring and thinks that she knows EVERYTHING when she isn't even tutoring the students!

DO not take this professor. She does not teach you anything, and exepects you to know what she doesnt teach you on exams. Low exam grades, and she doesnt know why. One of the most boring classes that i have taken at GV.

Do not take any math ed courses from Walker. You will not be taught any methods for teaching mathematics, just the 7th and 8th grade mathematics itself. Biased grader. Often seems unprepared and lacking applicable knowledge about teaching mathematics. Take anyone else!

This class may not be the easiest, but it will help you teach elementary math. Prof. is very smart, willing to help, and is very organized. She just wants you to understand what the elementary student is going through and teaches the class so that you can put yourself in their shoes. Go to class, pay attention, think like a teacher you'll be fine!

Prof. Walker is a genius. She teaches the class exactly as it should be taught. The course load is tremendous, but I have never learned more in a college course. Take her you will learn much!

Good professor, but picky with grades, and quizzes can be tricky. Class is two hours but she uses teaching toys and it makes it go by faster.

Her class is a drag to go to! We're in class for 2 hours straight and she does give a break! Quizzes are tricky and she believes in LONG lesson plans for classrooms. She tries to make you feel like you are incapable of teaching. Her assignments don't help as far as teaching a REAL high school cl

Walker is everything I don't want to be as a teacher. She is thinks she knows all, but she doesn't. . . not even close. She loves to hand out C's for some reason. Probably because she doesn't put much energy into teaching and doesn't even read complete

Bias professor. Willing to work with students. Takes time to teach the class when there are questions. Use that time.
