Quarter Taken: Winter 2015 Submitted June 20, 2017 Grade Received: A

Professor Brown was a very nice and caring professor. Her tests were very straightforward and based off the textbook. She took a more geometric approach to teaching linear algebra, which I thought was pretty cool. Overall, I would recommend taking her.

Overall, nice and approachable professor.

The exams were fair; I would say they were more based on the lectures than the textbook. If your grade on the final is better than your grade according to her scale, she'll make your grade 90% final and 10% homework. (As opposed to 25% each midterm, 10% homework, and 40% final).

In lecture she really emphasizes on visuals (she draws lots of pictures of planes and vectors and such). This emphasis tends to translate to the exams.

Homeworks are straight-forward, straight from the textbook.

Overall nice professor, one of the better ones I've had for a lower division math class.

This one probably the most dysfunctional class I have ever taken. No one paid attention and random students were calling out in class, disrupting class, and acting like idiots for most of the lectures.

Every single day the entire class would just talk to their friends and she just kept right on teaching. Whenever she tried to get everyone to pay attention they would just ignore her.

If you want an easy A then go ahead and take her. At the beginning of the class she said, "If you guys all deserve an A then I will give you all an A and I will just deal with the department myself." Then she made the average on her tests like 80%+ so we all ended up "deserving it". She was a very easy professor.

If you want to learn the material then maybe don't. She has a great graphical insight to the math she is teaching but can't get her point across if no one is listening anyway.
