Comment:
Really strict, she will call on you at random, she gets annoyed easily with students asking questions, talking, or even if your phone accidentally rings. She is really difficult to follow sometimes. Her exams could be challenging, if you put the effort, she will notice.

She was either always late or never there. She graded you on homework on the computer so if you don't have access to internet find some. She would make you do problems on the board for a grade. She would yell at you or get mad if you asked a question. Talked more about herself then the class. STAY AWAY FROM HER CLASS!

Comment:
She's a very insightful professor with lots of knowledge and passion for mathematics. If you want to gain an intuitive understanding then she will help you get it, however if you want to slack off and not do the required work then she will make you know that you aren't putting in what is required. Be ready to think and apply yourself.

isn't their some procedure that teachers must go through psychological testing before deemed fit to teach others? if so i think this teacher skipped that procedure #CRAZY.i advise u not to take her if ur not a math wiz who could learn the material on ur own.

She is a nice lady. If you don't your homework or come to class on time, she's bound to be angry. She knows how to go in depth of mathematics.

Comment:
She wastes half the class yelling at the class for either being late or just because she has to many issues and likes to take it out on the class. Although this class isn't the easiest she just makes it worse for you to learn. I would not recommend her to anyone.

Comment:
get a padded room ready. This woman is absolutely INSANE! You dont need to be a shrink to figure that one out. The woman teaches directly from a book that she says is awful, she beats herself up when she gets so frustrated she doesnt know what else to do. Thats NO joke. Ask anyone that had her for calc 1 in spring 2005. PSYCHOPATH is all i have2say

I get all A's and B's and I can tell you now that she's a bad teacher who really just can't teach. She pays too much attention about telling you to pay attention and she has some big issues...however, her tests are pretty easy, but she'll give you things to test that you've paid attention.

Very repetitive and teaches right from the book. Tests are very easy and not tricky. If you're good at math, it's a boring class but helpful for your GPA.

Her policies are strict, but it is easy to pass the class if you read the textbook. Not very clear on making herself available for extra help.

--Teaching: She's barely above average, but doesn't go into details with problems.--Exams: Very challening. If U want to pass her tests, you BETTER study.--Demeanor: She comes off as mean and condescending. If U're nice to her, doesn't seem too bad.

Although she is a nasty professor that is so into herself because she is a quote "Female Mathematician", She is GREAT compared to Professor Pulver. Shaver's tests are straight forward; they are exactly like the Homework problems that she assign

She is tough but knows how to teach. You will get out really knowing your stuff. What you will learn in MAT 117/131 will help you in the rest of your courses. I definitely recommend her.
