Professor Maloney is great. She is very understanding of situations brought on by the pandemic and is flexible. Homework is not graded but it is important to do it or you may get lost easily. All in all a wonderful teacher and I wish I would've had her in person.

Creative and adaptable teaching style for max effect, not just a "procedural" teacher. Reviews as she's introducing new topics, and relates it to real world examples which helps solidify material at a fundamental level. She doesn't grade homework but she gives worksheets and extra resources for more practice. Grades quizzes and participation.

She is by far one of the most disorganized teachers I have had yet. The class I took was an online synchronous, and her lectures were all over the place, not helpful to learning the material, and feel like a waste of time. She seems very underequipped to do online classes, and I basically had to teach myself. thankfully light on quizzes and tests

She was honestly one of the better professors I've had at the actual teaching of Calculus. She is kind and willing to help you if you ask. However, she only takes into account the 3 tests and final exam with like 4 "projects" for your whole grade. The test are stupidly hard and you basically have to be gifted at math to get an A

She doesn't even know how to use canvas, just imagine how she was dealing with this online situation. first of all, there is no HW for her class and therefore you gotta practice by yourself. her lectures crap and you don't get much out of them. just study from the text

She is a very good lecturer and explains concepts very well in class but her tests and projects are x10 harder that anything she talks about in class. They seem like problem only she can solve most of the time. If that's not an issue then go ahead, she's a nice lady and is very willing to help you. DO YOUR HW, she doesn't check but you need it.

Honestly, I've always been pretty good at Math which is probably why I was even able to pass her class. Her lectures are really basic and cover easy to solve problems. Her tests are long and the difficulty is much higher than what is covered in class. She has poor structure and instructing abilities. I would stay away from her class.

She might a good Prof for MATH 335 or below, but she does NOT have knowledge for Upper math classes such as MATH 400 and 401. Her lectures are so basic and confusing and it won't help you in undrestading the material. But her exams are so detailed and nothing like her lectures. She is also a really tough grader.

She is the best math professor I've ever had. I've always struggled with math and she's taught me to love it. She's truly passionate about math and really wants you to understand it. Her grading criteria is clear, her classes are always so interesting! If you struggle with math; please, take her.

She treats you like an adult. She doesn't grade homework, which means you have to be self-motivated. A little weird but really nice and funny, but some explanations have to be researched when they aren't clear. The hard part is the grading. 3 exams (20% each) the final(20%) and everything else(20%). So you won't get by unless you know the work.

One of the best math classes I have ever taken. She is extremely helpful in and outside of class. Answers back on emails almost right away and is available for office hours. She does give homework for practice but it is never graded and she does give pop quizzes every once in a while for 10pts. The grade is test heavy, so make sure to study.

Great professor! She truly cares about her students and gives extra time on exams and lots of help if you ask. She's funny and silly at times, but serious about her subject. It is a tough class, but she works with students. Wish I'd taken her earlier.

Professor Maloney is ok. I don't like the way that she teaches the class. She gives you very general examples.

7 open note, open book, open neighbor pop quizzes. Doesn't make fun of you if you're very confused. Likes students who learn from mistakes and others peoples questions. Be curious! She works hard to create worksheets that reflect homework and get you ready for tests. She will not hold your hand through the tough stuff- have self-motivation!

Doesn't grade homework, but don't be fooled! If you're skipping homework, classwork is tedious and confusing. The lecture includes working out problems similar to the most recent homework, and then introducing topics in a realistic way. She likes to mix in old problems with new, so your brain is always stretching its capacity for recall. 3 exams.

math is her first language; but gives very general examples of how to work through even the most basic calculus problems in a way that someone that has never seen calculus before. also gets off topic, often- leaving you even more confused by the end of class. does not collect homework, but MUST do if you intend on learning intro calc.

She is by far the best math teacher I have ever had. First week, make friends and study groups, they help so much. Do all the homework although you don't turn it in, it helps. We got notecards for every test and had 4 projects that were turned in for "homework grade." Attendance does affect your grades, she drops after 3 missed classes.

Homework isn't mandatory, but if you don't do it you'll feel like you've missed a day or two of class because she expects you to have done the homework and moves on to the next topic. You have 8 chapters, 4 tests and a midterm and final. You get a notecard on the final but not on the others. Make a good group and this class won't be too bad.
