Comment:
Great professor, I learned a lot in her class and she makes sure everyone understands the topic before moving on. She is a tough grader, make sure you take lots of notes and review them before tests. The textbook can help too but isnt really necessary. Keep in mind that she only grades tests and the final exam.

Comment:
Dr. Cheng's lectures are easy to understand, and she is very helpful if you have a question. She is not too fast, and stops occasionally to allow the class to write notes down. She goes through many examples to cover most bases of a topic and really cares about her students and the subject. Her tests are difficult, however, so make sure to study up

Was very good at explaining the material for the class. However, when it came down to tests and quizzes they had hard differentiations and integrals to the point in which other classes use coding software to solve the equation.

her homework assignments are optional but I recommend doing them and never missing a class. The way she grades is kind of harsh but she always more than willing to help you outside of class. Don't expect to get an easy A, she will make you work for it.

Comment:
So I will say that she's a good teacher, I feel like I learned from her teaching methods. However, her grading is ridiculously harsh and she needs to reevaluate how she does her tests. Every single person worked until the last minute to finish the tests. There's not enough time to check your work and you lose many points on arithmetic errors.

Professor Cheng is a great person and teacher. She is very nice and makes lectures fun. There is a lot to learn but she is very available for office hours and presents the material very straight forward. Do the homework and review and you will do great in the class.

Comment:
Professor Cheng is really funny and you can tell that shes very passionate about her class and subject. People say that the class is difficult but truthfully if you do the homework and practice tests you should be able to pass no problem. She goes over a lot in lectures so I wouldnt advise skipping class. All in all she was a great professor!

Comment:
She is a tough grader and it's not an easy class, but she is a sweet person and it is definitely possible to pass and even do well. You have to make sure you do the assigned book work and keep on top of things because there are weekly quizzes based upon the homework, but she isn't nearly as bad as others make her out to be.

She will make sure you know the material and not be able to just go through the motions. I had her for matrix algebra and got a B+ because she has a easier grading system but all the same the class was hard(though she doesn't make you do proofs so that's nice). For Diff Eq though she is the same but expects you to know your basics very well

Prof. Cheng is one of the most difficult professors at Kettering. She will teach more than you need for the course, and she grades quite hard. But you will learn more from her classes than any other professor. Do the assigned homework, use class time wisely, and use her provided cribs to study for exams. The course isn't that hard, just practice.

Comment:
As nice of a lady Ada Cheng is, she's still an awful teacher. I would not recommend her. I absolutely loved the material of the class, but her ability to teach it to her students just isn't really there. If you don't remember something from a previous course, she will not help you with it. It's just a HARD class with her no matter what.

Comment:
She was very nice person, and students seemed to love her for upper level classes. However, I haven't found a single person willing to say a good thing about her teaching lower level classes such as Calc 2. Tests were not similar in difficulty to her questions on assignments or quizzes. She did not have clear, or standard grading systems.

Had Ada for DiffEq and BVP, the next diffeq class after 204. She will push you like nobodies business. I spent countless hours studying but loved every minute of it. She will make you to truly KNOW calculus, not just be capable of doing the motions. I got a D- in 204 and a C in 313 but found the classes incredibly informative. Challenging, period.

Horrible professor. She has a very heavy accent, however this is not much of an issue considering she rarely speaks. She will just write things on the board at such a rapid rate, your hands will be in constant pain. No steps will be explained. If she talks at all, she will just say some of the numbers she is writing down. She also writes messy.

Tests are harder than any homework or anything seen before. Likes to test on theory. Have Matlab assignments that are nearly impossible and she is not much help because she wants you to figure it out on your own, with very little instruction. Avoid if possible.

Ada loves teaching but Calc II for her is very hard. The quizzes are easy if you do the homework. The midterm and final are the only things that matter, and they are very hard you just have to study for those.

RUN! The only reason I passed b/c I didn't have to take the final.(Snow Day) This chick is STUPID HARD! Don't be like me and think you can beat the odds. Our class Avg for tests was ~35/60. 58%!! She has a decent curve, but all it does it helps you pass so she doesn't get audited. Do yourself a favor. Spend $300 & take this class online @ LSU!!
