Comment:
Her expectations are higher than most profs. Most quiz/test/exam questions are minor variations on material from the slides/homework. Expect the tests/exam to be comprehensive and the marking to be mostly unforgiving; she cares about getting all the details right. Don't try to fake test questions you don't know (you won't get any marks doing that).

Comment:
Keep in mind: written during COVID-19, online and proctored. Kathie is the first prof through this entire COVID process to make proctoring feel gross. The way she gets giddy as she explains the impossible restrictions that are entirely invasions of privacy and unreasonable to ask of a student. Suggested using tinfoil as a mirror for env scans.

Comment:
This class was honestly my favorite math class at Laurier. Super cool topics and Dr. Cameron did a good job explaining all of them. Her class was laid out well and she always responded to my emails really quickly (even at 11 pm the night before the midterm). It's a tough class so make sure you do the homework, she gave an old midterm to study from.

One of the worst online professors I've had at laurier. Her methods are stuck in the past and she shows no adaption to the future of online learning.

Lectures were unclear and when students had questions, she was visibly annoyed. The two midterms were rough, while the final and tutorials werent that bad, but everything was harshly marked. With marks docked for grammar or 0s for small mistakes.

Comment:
Stupid tough grader. Hardly ANY part marks given even when some calculations are shown correctly. Had an incredibly difficult time adjusting to an online form and it reflected on EVERYONES grades. Little to no remorse for poor midterm grades, and blamed students constantly for not doing enough practice or showing up to lectures. Would give 0.

Comment:
She really struggled with this whole online teaching. Her lectures were incoherent and difficult to follow. Both midterms were pretty brutal, but the tutorials and final were pretty fair. But I recommend studying the assigned questions thoroughly as midterm/final questions are pulled from there. Proof questions were taken from the notes.

She's been teaching for a long time yet she will make you doubt she has. She's unable to effectively adapt to online teaching. Her lecture material are filled with mistakes, leading to mass confusion. To top it all off, she's unsympathetic towards students, and stubborn. She literally antagonized the entire class this term. God, never again.

The entirety of the blame for low performance is being put on the students. She actually knows that what happened isn't right which is why she REFUSED to tell us the midterm average even when asked point-blank and will not admit any issues on her end and when asked for a bell curve simply said no because she doesn't believe it helps students.

The course was definitely a lot harder than I had expected, expecially the tutorials and both the midterms, they were marked harshly and the average of the class was not good at all on those two components.

One of the rudest professors I have had in my university career. She is organized with her notes, however she is very condescending and intentionally goes out of her way to make you feel bad about yourself for not understanding the material. Do not ask her questions during lecture as there were many instances where she would berate a student.

I found the material interesting and enjoyed the course. A lot of people worried about proofs on the exams, but there weren't many and they were all ones we had already done in class. If you attend class and do the practice problems you should get a good mark.

Imo she's not as concise as a math prof should be. A lot of times in quizzes/tests when you don't write word-to-word exact as the answer, it's likely that you get marks off even when you get the point across. Maybe non math major would appreciate her teaching style more.

Comment:
She tries to explain concepts in a straightforward way that is easy to grasp but between miscalculations, misformatting equations, and over-elaborating on small topics it is easy to quickly get lost in her explanations. This site is a godsend post-midterm: google search "discretetextoscarlevin" and then choose "browse interactive online version"
