Comment:
This professor was amazing and I loved her teaching style! The pre-class videos were very helpful for introducing new material, and her lecture slides included many examples that she worked through during class. She explains concepts and problem solving methods well. There is a lot of homework, but they are helpful for practicing the material.

She is a professor who cares about her students learning. I 100% recommend her. You will have a lot of work but you WILL learn! You have to do Knewton homework assignments every week, I had 3 zoom calls per week with her and we had 3-5 graded polling questions every class. Pay attention. Watch the videos before class and take notes. Tests are fine.

Professor Pyle was a great teacher and was very accessible outside of class for questions. The tests are very similar to the homework and reviews, there is a lot of homework given, but it helps you to succeed in the class.

Prof Dunlop-Pyle is the best math teacher Ive ever had. While there is lots of HW, its all good practice. Exams and weekly quizzes felt fair, with no trick questions. Panopto videos were provided to watch before class, made concepts a lot clearer. She is also kind, responsive, smart, and genuinely a good teacher. I highly recommend her.

Drop EXCEL since they will make you take this class, the program does nothing for you! I spent 24+ hours a week doing all her pointless online homework. She made it super stressful during the lecture and took multiple choice for grades every 15 min. She did 3 problems in 2 hours and they were the simplest ones. Just torture, I learned the hard way.

This is definitely not an easy class by any means but Mrs. Pyle does her best to make it as seamless as possible. Homework was extremely time consuming but at least she used a free textbook. Be prepared to teach yourself first. She records lectures for you to watch before doing homework and then she covers questions on material during the class

Comment:
Prof Pyle is very knowledgeable in her field, however, her explanations are difficult to understand and make things harder than they have to be. Average 2-3 hours of hw every other day, so I recommend doing half of the assignment each day. If you do the hw before class, you'll do well and understand... if not, good luck. Her TA's are very helpful!

Comment:
She is very knowledgable about calculus and can explain it very well. As a teacher, she is one of the best. However, as a classroom manager, not too great. Quizzes were pretty easy but I found myself losing whole points on a 10 point quiz for forgetting one dx which is ridiculous. On one exam, I missed 4/12 points on a question for notation

If I could give her a negative star rating, I would. Worst teacher I've ever had... arrogant, rigid, and condescending. She overloads homework and makes things much more difficult than they need to be. UCF needs to fire this instructor.

Very organized. Expects a lot of commitment, which means lots of hw & reviewing topics before the lessons to get participation points. If you miss 2 hw, can't get NC. No late work, no extra credit, no curves; only drops a few assignments. If online, she uses Honorlock. Don't recommend if you struggle w/ motivation & procrastination. itsoverwhelming

Comment:
online due to covid. She knows how to teach the material, but expects a lot of work for just a precal class. 5 credit class and had homework every other day. I was forced to take her because of the EXCEL program and did not enjoy it. Only take this class if you have to. it will take up all of your time and energy.

Prof Pyle is very smart and knowledgeable about calculus. That being said, this is the hardest class I've ever taken. I don't know if its compensation for an online course, but man did regret not swapping profs the first week. It just kinda seems like she makes it harder than it needs to be. I end up losing like half credit for notation error.

Professor Lori is a nice, and caring, but she a heavy grader, and she give more homework than necessary. No extra credit, 4 total exams, multiple quizzes, discussion posts, pre-homework, web-assigned homework and yes, she grade poll question on zoom too. If you up for the challenge, take her course; otherwise, take a different course.

She was a very good math teacher but gave lots of homework. It was a 5 credit hour course so it is understandable. As long as you watch the videos she makes and write good notes then it is an easy class.

Okay. This class itself is a ridiculous amount of work. You have to put in your hours. I did almost every homework question, but it's not enough practice to pass the test. Go to tutoring and every resource you have. Don't forget the dx or limit sign. I did poorly on exams which are like 70% of your grade so good luck. practice at least 2hrs/day

Lost of assignments. I need to work on this course's materials almost every day. Assignments really make me feel sad after finish it (don't want to do anything, just want to sit there and empty my mind. Harder than other high-level courses I have ever done (Real Analysis, PDE, etc.).

Grades notation very heavily, but is one of the most clear lecturers I've had at UCF so far. Feedback on quizzes is helpful to do well on tests. Quizzes are very alike tests. Gives good partial credit on tests.
