Also, i want to add that the class isn't necessarily an easy class but if you do all of her problems, pay attention in class, and understand it all, the class becomes significantly easier. she is just amazing in every aspect. she puts in a lot of work on her part and expects you to do the same. but you end up wanting to put in the effort because you see her working so hard. take her class!!!!!!!

Aliki was one of the best professors I've ever had. She's part of some professional tutoring group, so I think that's part of the reason she's so good at making the material easy to understand. Her lectures are crystal clear with plenty of examples, and they are incredibly organized. She also doesn't use the textbook at all, so there's no need for it. However, she uploads detailed lecture notes online which has pretty much what she does in lecture, minus the examples, so it's still worth it to show up.

Her grading scheme was 10% homework, 25% midterms and a 50% final, but she has an alternate one that takes the higher midterm score and makes it 35% and the final worth 55%.

The first midterm was fairly easy, with mostly computational problems. The average was pretty high, at about 86%. However, the second midterm was pretty hard, as she put some conceptual problems in there, not to mention the grading was kind of skewed with the conceptual problems being worth more than half of the midterm. The average was about a 63%.

However, one of the things that makes Aliki such a good professor is that she genuinely wants you to learn the material. She goes out of her way to make it alot easier for you. Aside from uploading detailed lecture notes, she also uploads practice examples for each topic she covers, practice problems for the exams, and homework solutions (after they're due of course). Some might view it as catering to her students, which I admit it kinda is, but it's still nice and it does help you immensely.

Also, since the second midterm average was low and alot of people complained apparently, she offered a replacement midterm where you can get up to 80% and have it replace the second one. If you score lower, then nothing will happen. However, this was right before finals week so it was up to you whether to take it or not.

Her final was pretty hard, almost everyone took the whole 3 hours, but it was manageable. She throws in some long computational problems and very conceptual problems where you have to think and do some tricks to get the right answer.

Although you should definitely take Aliki if she teaches again (although I heard she might be leaving after this year), you do have to put in the effort in the class to get a good grade. So regardless of what course she's teaching, you should take her class.

Professor Aliki is probably the best math professor I've ever had! She is fun, has a solid understanding of math, grades very fairly, and cares about her students. She uploads notes, practice problems, and homework solutions to CCLE every week, and has many office hours. I personally did not do well in her class, but I still strongly recommend her. Take Aliki's classes!
