Average grades given in the course:

Designed for the P-5 teacher. The development of the students ability to understand and communicate fundamental concepts of mathematics through reading, writing and discussing ideas will be strongly emphasized, along with the cultural, historical and scientific applications of mathematics. Topics will include the study of sets; the development of the set of whole numbers and the set of integers; operations with whole numbers and integers; mathematical systems and number theory. Emphasis is placed on building concepts through the use of models, manipulatives and the appropriate use of technology. Not for math majors.MATH 3315 Course Description

Professor Sims is an awsome teacher. He explains the material and does not test you on anything he has not explained. He cares about his students and will help any time you need him to. |

After reading these reviews I was terrified that he was my only choice for MATH3315, I went in just knowing I was going to fail this class. I actually found him to be kind of funny, and it's obvious he enjoys math which helped me to understand better. Even though I still don't know how an elementary student will use Clock 7, I did manage to finish with a B...wow! |

OK so once you get to understand how this guy teaches you will be fine. I started his class off with a 63 on the first test and was in tears....BUT worked really hard to understand his way and got an A in the class. So from tears of frustrations to tears of happiness. Math doesn't come easy for me but I learned to ask him how he would present it on the test and he would show us and 9 out of 10 times the question was just like it! |

MATH 3315 Critical Content Of Ece Math I
I have never learned so much useful information in 1 class. I walked away from this class with a new understanding and appreciation for math. This is not a class for those who are lazy and try to get by with little or no effort, but it is one for those who want to truly understand math. We had 2 test and a final.Her tests are not multiple choice (except part of the final) and just knowing the answer is not enough. You must be able to explain why. There were a couple of quizzes but notice was given. We had to write 1 math lesson plan and 1 paper. There were also in class group worksheets and you pick 6 weeks to write a reflection on what you have learned and what you do not understand. If you want to learn and you are willing to work then you should take Dr. Banker. |

I liked Dr. Banker's demeanor. She is very knowledgable about what she teaches. She did a lot of hands-on activities to help to explain the thought process of young learners. We had a few surprise quizzes which we had to take the next class period, 2 tests, one final that consisted of a 60 point take home and a 140 point in class multiple choice exam. She also required 6 reflection assignments for 30 point total (this consists of answering three online questions and email them to her), 3 page paper and lesson plan worth 40 points each, attendance worth 30 points, and she gave several extra credit assignments that we could take home to help boost our grade. Dr. Banker expects you to act like the adults that you are, and she loves what she does. If you are looking for an easy A, this is not the class for you. You do have to do your part as a student (show up, do your work, and study) and a teacher to be. Dr. Banker can be a bit moody at times (but show me a woman who isn't). I would take another one of her classes. |

At first I was really scared to take this class after seeing bad reviews about Dr Banker, however the class was great. I learned so much and she is pretty nice. She doesn't make the class too easy and yes you have to think and stay on your toes. She asks questions to see if we understood ( I could tell that bothered some people but I really liked that). Some of the questions seemed so hard but the answers were obvious, so that took a little getting use to. Overall she is a really good teacher, I have learned how to think more from a childs perspective when teaching. I would take Dr. Banker again. |

Professor Womack is a really great teacher that cares about whether or not his students learn. If the class doesn't understand, he'll explain it until they do. If they still don't understand, he finds another way to explain it. If you do your homework, ask questions, and come to the lectures there is no reason for not getting an A. I took him for Math 3315 in the summer. There was homework (optional) and a quiz for every section covered in the book. There were 3 tests. And he replaced the lowest test grade with the grade from the Final. I was sick and had to miss a test, but I was able to just replaced the grade. Professor Womack is a very down to earth, nice teacher who loves math and wants to pass that on to his students. I completely recommend him and hope that I will get to take him again. |

I took 3315 with Mr. Womack during the summer. He is fair and clearly knows what he is doing. We had quizzes every night that there wasn't a test, but you have ample opportunity to ask questions to gain understanding. Everything you need for class is on his website, up to and including practice problems and helpful websites. He will drop the lowest quiz and replace the lowest test score with your final if you do better. Class attendance is not required, but is helpful as there is a quiz each night. I think that he is great. His teaching style hasn't changed much since I took him years ago. He is clearly interested in students doing well and getting the information they need. |

She is GREAT!!! She teaches math excellently. If you don't like math, take her and you will leave absolutely loving it (and knowing how to teach it). She is for sure the best teacher I have EVER had in my life! I would definately recomend her. |

Dr. Fox is the BOMB!!nI wish every math class was like this one. For ECE, the material and presentations for the class were spot on. Manipulatives were used and relevance tied into them, quizzes/tests were discussed and gone over, your success was always first in her mind, and her use of past experiences and teaching of "adversity" is very important! Have fun in there! do home work thought it will make your life easier! |

She is extremely helpful. Her teaching methods are difficult at first but once you get the hang of it, its not too bad. This was a very hard class but if you really put effort into it an A is possible. Her exams are awful, however she does give partial credit. My test grades were, A, a C, and an F. I ended up with an A in her class and exempted the final. She gives so many extra assignments that the exams do not make or break your grade. |
