She is clumsy sometime during the lecture and may confuse you well enough. She consistently makes mistakes on the board every lecture. If somebody points out, good for you, if nobody spots it or if nobody wants to spot it, you would have a good time figuring out by yourself. Also, she does not curve. The people who said her tests are not hard, they were lucky in that very quarter. She is not that bad, but a lot of time, you would have to study by yourself and make sure you're not just study the lecture because she doesn't cover everything you need to know. She is also the kind of professor that would "encourage" your learning by answering your questions with questions, she does not give you a yes or no answer. It just doesn't work for me. I need to know something is right or wrong so I can learn and apply it in the future.

This is for MATH142. Don't be fool when you look at the grade distribution. She does NOT curve, so the class that has this grade distribution was a strong class itself (no + or -, or at least that's what she said), and based on my first midterm her test is not easy either. More than half of the class got a C, 1/4 got B, the rest are A, D, F. What I don't like about this class is that I found her lecture is not well organized sometime. She tries to build her lecture up step by step to make her points. That sounds like a good plan, but she doesn't know how to do that. Instead of giving an idea, then show the point of that idea within one lecture, she threw out a bunch of different things and only made her points after 2,3 lectures. Most of the time her lectures left me confused and not know what she was doing, then when she finally made her point, I was "Ahhh! so that's what all of this was for". I really don't like this because some of her ideas before the actually concepts were just "reference" and never be used again after. She makes lots of mistakes during lectures, too. She is also kind of hard to approach, at least that is how I feel when she replied to other students' questions. Overall, I don't think she is a good lecture nor does she care about student's success. She is not a really bad choice, but just don't think she will give out bunch of As just because of this grade distribution.
