MATH 141 Business Math I
She is awsome. I am not that good at math, but she helped me to understand. Bottom Line: TAKE POAGE!!!!! |

MATH 141 Business Math I
Dr. Poage is amazing! She is upfront on what she expects but helps you out if you make the effort for her. Class consisted of lecture, make some funny jokes, lecture some more. It sounds boring but she makes sure to get you into it as much as possible, but it's math so that's difficult. There were a few quizes but you usually knew about them or so she reviewed right before class. We would usually have one or two daily grades (one or two page print out about a lesson) every other week. The tests aren't so bad as long as you went to class and did the daily grades. She is very organized so you never have to wonder when things are due. This year she ran the NYC marathon so we had internet class which consisted of watching a video of her doing problems. She is a master at explaining things to you in a way that we can understand and is always willing to answer questions. She posts her notes on her website but you have to come to class to fill them in. She doesn't care about attendance but if you miss a quiz because you skipped she won't help you out. Dr. Poage usually sits in the classroom before class and talks to us, asking us how our week has gone, if we have any tests, just stuff that make you feel comfortable talking to her. She really wants to know you and has a fun assignment at the beginning of the semester to learn your name and face. She's just a really cool person. :) (she has facebook too) |

MATH 141 Business Math I
dr poage was a super super teacher. her notes are printed out with spaces to fill in the problem work. she breaks things down so it is easy to understand! wonderful prof!!! A++++++ |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She was the best prof I have ever had. She was very easy to talk to and even though she gave frequent homework assignments they didn't take much time and they helped to raise your grade. If you were willing to study her tests were very simple. She gives plenty of practice exams that are very similiar to the real ones and makes it very clear exactly what will be on the test. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Dr. Poage was a wonderful professor. She really got me interested in math again. She makes it fun and easy. I took her during the summer and the class moved very quickly, which I preffered. The notes were printed off the internet and she followed them very closely during class. The homework problems assigned were good enough to help you learn the basics of the mathematical concepts illustrated during class, but the daily grades and practice tests were the most help. She doesn't vary much in the type or difficulty of question she asks and this was helpful when studying. The tests were easy and there were no trick questions - it was straight from the homework, daily grades, and practice exams. She was extremely helpful during office hours (especially if you are going to miss a day and request the notes in advance) and once I came late to class and she still let me see the notes. I can't wait to take STAT in the fall she made math so much fun. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Very good teacher, must take for math 141. Very helpful and definately knows her stuff. Explains everything well and gives lots of outside help. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Dr. Poage is very nice and friendly. She has numerous old tests online as well as answer keys and they are always there. She made class interesting and there was plenty of outside help available. Attendance was not mandatory but there were pop quizzes. Grades come from homework, quizzes, and exams. Homeworks were not difficult and consisted of 10 or less problems. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
interested in subject matter and the learning of her students. considerate of those who are falling back in class. web site A+++ |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
I took MATH 141 with Dr. Poage in the fall of 2006. I am absolutely horrible at Math but Dr. Poage makes things a lot easier. She is friendly and funny, and memorizes the names of almost every single student. The advisors even say she is the best professor choice for the business math classes. If you have to take math, she is the only choice! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Mrs. Poage is an awesome prof! Math was never my strong suit but she explained everything thoroughly and helped to make the class interesting; I ended up doing very well in her class. She is caring and willing to help outside of class at any time you need her. She gives easy optional quizzes towards the end of the course that really help to boost your grade. If you are going to take Math 141, definitely take it from her! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Dr. Poage is super awesome! She will do her best to help you if you do not understand. She takes her time to explain what is going on and she does not mind going over things again if you are having trouble. She encourages you to print out lecture notes ahead of time so you do not have to write a ridiculous amount of explanations. She makes worksheets due at certain times but they are not too difficult especially if you get together with a few people to work it out. She also gives a few quizzes during the semester. Some of them she will tell you about and others are 'pop' quizzes but she really emphasizes you need to know the material when she wants to give a 'pop' quiz. Her tests are somewhat difficult but reviews in and out of class give examples that are close, if not the same, as test questions. She also posts all of her old tests online so you can get an idea of how she works her tests. There are 3 exams and a comprehensive final. Each test during the semester has multiple choice and workout problems but the number of each varies on each test. The final is strictly multiple choice. I know it seems horrible that the final is comprehensive but she tells you what parts of each chapter to look over and how many questions from each old test will be on the final. Attendance is not mandatory but it definately helps you. I STRONGLY recommend her if you can get her! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Doctor P is an amazing professor! She's the best prof here when it comes to Math 141/142, and you'll have a great time taking it with here. She interesting, makes the course fun, and is always willing to help. The course consists of three exams (20% of grade each), and a cumlative final (20% of grade), daily grades (10%), and online quizes (10%). If you keep up in class, and even do half of the suggest homework, you should have no problem with an A. She's always available and willing to help. Great person outside the classroom as well. Highly recommend her! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
This is an awesome teacher!! Definitely one of the best, if not THE best I've ever had. She's very fair, makes the class interesting, and has a great teaching style that makes it easy to understand. I wish more teachers could be like her. You're very lucky if you get to have her as your prof! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She teaches only what you really need to know. She is easy to understand because she speaks in plain english and explains everything. She is open to questions and teaches things slowly enough to understand. She also has everything online, from lecture notes to homework to test grades. She is young and sometimes tells stories about her life. You can look at her website at http://www.math.tamu.edu/~poage/ |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Mrs. Poage is a great teacher. She is energetic (begins each day with a Howdy) and very approachable. She often sits with students before class(she knows every students name and face) and talks about anything and everything. Homework is not turned in although it helps during tests. 11 fairly easy quizes throughout the semester bring up your grade. Tests are not too bad. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She actually teaches MATH, not how to memorize formulas. It's not that it's an easy class, because it isn't. But you will come out understanding the material. I had her for an 8 o'clock, and i never missed it. That's how good she is. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She is definitely the best math teacher I have ever had. There are 3 tests, a comprehensive final, and about 15 daily grades. There's suggested homework that I always did. It definitely helped me make an A in the class. Her notes are online. You print them off and fill them out in class. Attendance isn't mandatory but it definitely helps to go. She learned the names of every one of her students within the 1st few weeks of class. She has good office hours and is willing to help you if you need it. I would definitely take Poage again. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Great teacher. She's young but extremely smart. If you don't understand what she's talking about, she'll always explain it another way too. The class can get confusing but she is definately a good professor. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
BEST TEACHER AT A&M! I can't believe there are actually people who fail this class. She tells you straight-forward that the questions come from homework, worksheets, and old tests (which are posted on her webpage). And sure enough...every question on the test I had seen before...NO SURPRISES! I wish she taught other subjects as well as math. There need to be more teachers like her at A&M. AMAZING!!!! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Kickass Prof. if you have to take 141 take her. You have to go to class but it is easy and she makes it as least boring as possible. She knows her stuff and she teaches you how to do the math, she doesn't want you to memorize a bunch of formulas. Also she is VERY MUCH IN LOVE WITH THE CALCULATOR, so you need one a TI-83. Take Poage. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She is an excellent prof! She is very intelligent, but teaches the math at a level that I could understand. She is also funny. I actually looked forward to going to her class. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Poage is such a good prof. She's so personable. She even learns the names of all of her students. She lets you go to her office and work on your homework to get help. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She has to be the best prof A&M has. She could teach 142 to a person without a brain. I got a B in the class, but only because I made a bad grade on my first test. All you need to study for the test are her notes, which you print off the web, and homework probs. The test is VERY similar to these probs. About 13 quizes, but she will drop the lowest grades after 10. I dont know what else to say about her but TAKE HER!!!!!!!!! Again, SHE IS THE BEST PROF AT A&M. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She is an awsome teacher and was always ready to help. I didn't go to any of the reviews and I still got an A in the class. I do recommend doing the suggested homework though because it helps. Her tests and quizes are not to bad as long as you do the homework. She goes slow and makes sure everyone understands before continuing. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Patrice is the BEST PROF here at A&M she teaches the material so well that you can help but learn it. I have her for 141 and 142 at the same time! And b/c she is so awesome it is easier to make taking 2 math classes at the same time easier. SHE IS A MUST TAKE, if you can't take her wait till you can. It will be well worth it. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
This is the best teacher I think I've had at A&M. She was awesome! She knows it all and she's willing to admit and change an answer if you find something wrong. She was always there to help during her office hours and welcomed your questions. I had no pre-cal or math the year before i took this class and I failed her final because I didn't study and I still made a B in her class. She is happy to answer any questions you might have and to explain your tests if you don't understand something. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
OMG! She is SUCH a great teacher. Going in as a freshman i was kinda worried on how hard the classes were but this one definetly calmed my nerves. Go to class and listen to what she says and u will have no problem |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She's an awesome 141 prof, it's not an easy class but if you put the work into it you'll do fine. She'll always try to work around your schedule to help you. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
OK, Poage rocks! She is a real awesome teacher, she is fair, friendly, and tries to make jokes and relate with the class. She has some funny stories every now and then. Poage doesn't give out lots of homework, she explains all her steps very well, and her tests do not try to trick students on purpose. This is the best math teacher I've ever had...if I could, I'd give her a 6. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Mrs. Poage is AWESOME! I had another prof for 141 my first semester here and dropped it b/c I was going to fail, but I tried 141 again and now I have an A and its all b/c of Mrs. Poage. She actually speaks English, which is rare and she is so fun! Take her Take her Take her. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
explains the material very well, is readily available for help if needed, keepse your attention in class, grades fairly, tells you what you need to know...good prof. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Dr. Poage was an awesome professor! She makes class entertaining and explains everything well. Studying for her tests are easy because her website has her past tests. If you can do those you know you'll be fine. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Poage is an excellent prof. She does relate to the students quite well and heaven forbide, know your name. That impressed me. It is hard to do poorly in her class and she helps if you are. So if you want to take her, do. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Poage is a good prof. She really knows math, and makes her class fun! The only thing i disliked about her class was the Multiple Choice questions on the tests, because you get no partial credit on them. But, she does give extra quizzes and lets you drop a few of the lowest grades! I got a B. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
I swore that if I had to take 142 here I would only take it from poage. She makes everything easy to understand and will go out of her way to help you. Her tests are not easy, but she really prepares you for them. She won't put anything on the tests that she didn't cover in class or in the homework. I had this class at 8 am and always loved going to it. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Very nice professor and very willing to help her students. The material isn't too bad.. there are takehome assignments weekly to help boost test grades, and prof. Poage is a very nice woman. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
she is so nice, easy to talk to and always willing to help you! take her! she posts old test online with the anwsers so studying is easy! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
I think the key to a good grade in math is part student related and part teacher related. Mrs. Poage held up her end of the bargain. She is a wonderful teacher. She is funny and down to earth and very helpful if you ever need her. If you attend class and work hard and do you job I assure you she will do hers. Her tests were pretty normal for math 141 test and quizzes are weekly, but that is pretty much in every class. I am telling you if you get her you wont regret it. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
The best math instructer I've ever had. She is fun and wants you to learn. Plenty of help is available and the tests and quizzes are fair. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
great prof so long as you go to class! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
If you have to take Math, take Poage. You won't regret it. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
If you can get into her class, take her. She is the best Prof I have ever had. Extremely smart, motivated and simple. |

MATH 141 Business Math I
The actual class was pretty hard, however Kilmer really tries to help you. She sends out emails frequently to keep you updated about exams, reviews, or anything that might be of importance. She has everything on the web, there are notes that you print out and take to class. There are computer homeworks and quizzes which are usually due a week after they're assigned. They can actually get pretty tough. There are suggested homework as well, which she then uses for her in class POP quizzes, and those are hard if you don't do the suggested homeworks. The exams are half multiple choice and half work out. She goes slow and tries to make sure that everyones understand. She's happy to answer any questions, and is very willing to help. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
I loved her! I love math and am picky about the way I like it taught, and she did a great job. She has print outs that you can bring to class and she works slowly over them and answers any questions you need. She has practice exams, reviews, and lots of other supplemental help. She gives a quiz every now and then on random fridays, so be prepared. The suggested homework problems are not a lot, and help tremendously with your grade!! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Mrs. Kilmer is very organized, and pleasant. She is always willing to help, never discredits a question and works with students if the class is having a hardtime. I took Math 141 honors with her and she knew my name by the end of the first week. Each week you have a quiz or a handout for homework. Together, this makes your daily grades. DO NOT IGNORE OR PUT OFF THESE ASSIGNMENTS.Bad grades are easy to make on these assignments, and even with a good test average you could get lower than you want in the class just because you didn't pay attention to your quizzes and homeworks! Attendance is not taken, but was greatly encouraged. I accidently missed one class and I scored significantly lower on that test than the others when I had been present for all the material. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Kilmer was a really good math teacher. Sadly for me, math is my least favorite and least strong subject. She gives you lots of resources to do well in her class with different sets of practice problems. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
she is such a wonderful prof!!! she explains things clearly and calmly for you. she is also very willing to help you before and after class, and will make sure you understand it before you leave. i took it during the summer so it went a lot quicker then in the fall and spring classes. we had quizzes almost every day that was over what we learned the day before. the tests have problems from the quizzes, suggested hmwk and online hmwk, so you must do them. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Mrs. Kilmer is who you want to have for math 141. I took her over the summer. Since the entire course was covered in 4 and a half weeks I spent a lot of time studying. I spent close to 30 hours a week studying for her class and made an A in her class. Mrs. Kilmer will work with you if you dont have the grade you want, as long as she knows you care about her course. I honestly think that the main reason people dont do good in this class is because of bad study habbits, not because the class is too hard. Just make sure do the homework immediately after class while it is fresh in your mind, or at least look over the notes before your next class starts. I am not super smart by any means, but Mrs. Kilmer is very patient and understanding. You will do good if you take all her advice! Do all the suggested homework, and make sure you know how to get the right answers! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
she is very nice and compassionate, she sends out many emails to her students to keep them updated on what is happening and how they can get help. you have to go to class but she makes it worthwhile to go. she doesn't move too fast and makes sure everybody understands what is going on. she is a good teacher to have for a tough class |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Loved this prof! DETAILED notes. You know what's going on. Doesn't take attendence but has assigned seating. drops lowest daily grade. online homework (attempted as many times as needed and gives you a week to do it). quizes to help grade. 3 exams plus the final. GREAT TEACHER! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
she is very sweet and does not hesitate to answer any questions you may have. she gives points on quizzes for putting class/name/seat number. she lets you borrow a calc if u forget yours. she is more than willing to go out of her way to help you with anything. |

MATH 141 Business Math I
Excellent professor! She's very organized and I love the way she teaches. I just did the online homework and had no problem getting an A in the class. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Mrs. Kilmer is a wonderful professor. She really cares for her students and offers alot of help if necessary. The material is well covered and if you go to the week in reviews and go over the material, the tests are relatively easy. I would definately take another class from her. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She is really nice and explains things clearly. She is willing to help outside of class. Her exams are very similar to the quizes, problems worked in class and problems in the book. She has suggested homework from the book, which is nice because you can work the problems you want when you want to work them. She announces quizes a few days in advance but does not post the dates on her website, so you need to go to class to know when they are. Going to class was helpful: I didn't feel like I was wasting my time. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She is a good teacher. She was always willing to answer your questions either face to face after class or through email. If you did the practice problems she gave you they were very helpful in preparing for her exams. I made an A in this class and it should be fairly easy to make an A if you have a good math background. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Math can be used in real life |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
I loved this class. She works at a slow pace when she notices her students are having problems grasping the material. She respects her students, she hosts week in review sessions. She goes above and beyond to see her students succeed. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She is a very good professor. She explains everything so clearly and is very open to answering questions in the middle of class if you get confused. For her notes she uses a packet that has all the concepts written out and multiple practice problems, they are available on her website to print out and fill out along with her in class. You have homework due once a week on WebAssign and she generally has either a quiz/in class assignment or a take home assignment every week (although she does skip those for some weeks too). She's a very good prof and if you have the opportunity to take her class you definitely should! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
This was the best prof I have had ever! She was an amazing teacher, really taught the material well. And everything that was taught in class was pretty much exactly what was to be expected on the test. Online homework was at times annoying but really helped to better understand the material. She prepared notes for the class to print out for each section with practice problems and everything you need to know for the test and quizzes. The homework, daily grades, and quizzes were a great opportunity to bring up poor test grades. There was always extra help available via online problems and streaming solution videos, week-in-review sessions, office hours, and other help. I would strongly recommend this course to a friend and am currently trying to get into her 131 class for the spring. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Everyone I talked to during this semester that took math 141 wished they had Kilmer as a prof. Kilmer definitely taught the material very well in class and held week-in-review sessions weekly in order to go over the material once more. She assigns a fair amount of homework in the form of weekly webassigns and a weekly workshet, but in my opinion, it is just enough homework to help you learn the material well for the test. She took attendance twice I believe over the semester and entered it as a daily grade, which is a good thing in my opinion since almost everyone attended class on a regular basis anyways. She is a great prof, but she is still pretty strict on her grading, so just make sure you do a lot of practice problems before the tests. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Professor Kilmer is a great professor for those that honestly don't find Math as their strongest course. She has notes that you print out from her website and you add what she goes over in class. Her lectures are easy to understand, and always she's helpful when you ask. She gives weekly computer homework and "daily grades", which are assignments you print from her website, and those are good because they boost your grade up. Tests are very straightforward, study the notes she provides and MUST do the highly suggested homework problems for every chapter, it works like a charm. There are 3 tests and a final at the end. She offers week-in review help sessions every tuesday night, so she provides many opportunities. It looks like my grade might be borderline A/B but that's because i didn't do all the homework! I highly recommend you take her for 141 if she's available. She really wants all her students to succeed, depends on if you want that A or not. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
You can easily get an A if you really follow her(computer homework, reviews, suggested homework.etc) |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
This is my second time to take math 141. The first time, my professor was horrible and I ended up failing. Prof Kilmer, on the other hand, is absolutely delightful. She thoroughly explained everything and readily took questions. She also provides notes that you are required to print off and bring to class. This is extremely helpful in organization. I am not a math person so the format of her class was very helpful. She also provides weekly daily grade assignments. If you do well on these, it helps your grade a lot if you do poorly on tests. Her test problems are similar in format to the problems she covers in class. She never puts trick problems...or problems nothing like what was covered in class on her tests. She was very nice and friendly. I liked her as a person and a professor. However, don't even thing about using a phone, computer, ipod, ipad, or any other device in her class other than a calculator unless given permission from the university to do so. She hates devices being used in her class and is not afraid to call someone out or kick them out for being rude. I've seen it happen, it's embarrassing and awkward for the perpetrator....don't do it. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Kendra Kilmer is an excellent professor, by far the greatest math instructor I have ever had. She presents the material very clearly and it's easy to understand. She has office hours that you are welcome to come to and she will help you no matter what. She provides a week-in review every week that is extremely helpful and has problems similar to what will be on the quizzes and tests. We have online homework every week, a practice one and a real one that are identical problems so it's really difficult not to get a 100% if you do the practice. I would recommend taking her to anyone. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Professor Kilmer knows what she's doing when it comes to teaching this course. Not only does she have a complete understanding of the material, but she also is able to convey it and teach it to a class. Her tests can be tricky, but she has a plethora of resources you can use to figure out any problems you may have. All of the work she assigned was there to help, and it was never busy work. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She teaches everything thoroughly. Always is available outside of class if you're having trouble. Hardly ever gives anything random.. alot of take home work. Alot of opportunities to bring up grades as well... not extra stuff, but theres easy homework, alot of quizzes that aren't too difficult, and good test reviews. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Kilmer is a GREAT teacher. She thoroughly explains everything and is very good at explaining things when people answer questions. Her tests are very basic, and if you do the online homework, the homework she gives in class, and the practice problems in the book, this class will be an easy A. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
I thought she was a really good professor, especially for a Math class at A&M. She explains things really well in class and her notes are just like the homework and the test questions so if you go to class and pay attention you should be fine. There's a decent amount of homework and it can be kind of a pain but it really does help to get the practice before the test. I liked that she was really patient in her office hours and she would explain things until you understand. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Professor Kilmer is a wonderful professor. She is always there to give outside help, and gives you plenty of resources to succeed. Although class is not mandatory, there are days where you are required to turn in assignments. Most of your work is online through webassign which is nice because you have three tries for every problem. Just attend class and get 100s on the webassign and you will do well! Regardless of what people say, taking a math course at A&M is completely DOABLE. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She is probably the most organized person I've ever seen. The class is difficult regardless of the prof, but I assure you that she's the best one to get you through it! Your grade is made up of three exams (each made up of multiple choice and true/false questions), a final, take home assignments, online homework, and group quizzes done with the people around you the class before each exam (the seats are assigned throughout the entire semester so MAKE SURE you try to find smart people to sit by the day she takes the seat order because the quizzes are pretty tricky and you want good partners!) She is very helpful and great at explaining things and her website is always updated! GO TO WEEK-IN-REVIEWS!!! TA and office hours are a huge help as well; they will help you solve some of the tricky web assign problems if you just take your laptop or print off the page of problems. Kilmer is a strict teacher when it comes down to things that bother her - she will make you stay after class to talk to her if she catches you asleep or on your phone, and you're not allowed to use your laptop in class. This class takes a LOT of outside work to succeed in, but I made an A in it so it is possible! Don't let the super easy first exam fool you... they will get a LOT harder (not because of her, but simply because of harder content). But like I said, officer hours and Week-in-Reviews are your new best friend. She's amazing. TAKE HER! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She is a good teacher and will help you outside of class. The tests and "quizes" (they are in a group setting) are easy. I didnt study at all and made an A. |

She's easily one of my favorite professors (and I'm disappointed I can't take another class with her). She's pretty strict on grading as well as electronics in the class room (which I'm okay with) but is very prompt about getting graded exams back to the students. She's very clear when teaching and for the most part answers the questions I had thought of before I was even able to raise my hand. Instead of just -saying- something works a certain way because "she says so", she does her best to show us why that certain situation works. Personally, this was awesome. She also does weekly reviews and is willing to answer any questions before and after class. |

MATH 141 Business Math I
Ms. Reeder is a great professor. I don't have enough space to write about how awesome she truly is. She explains things clearly and several times if needed. She understands that the subject material is not the easiest but offers plenty of opportunities to excel. It's not an easy class, but if you put in the effort she will be more than willing to help you out. She's an angel when it comes to office hours and answering emails, you will NEVER get the impression that she's impatient or frustrated with you if you have the same questions or need extra help; believe it or not profs have lives too but she often started her office hours early if she had students waiting. Her exams are tough, she really wants her students to understand the concepts and not just memorize particular problems. Her notes are all online so you just need to print them out and bring them to class to fill out the examples. The examples on the notes are very similiar to a few on quizzes and exams. She doesn't take roll but I wouldn't recommend not going, your grade will reflect the effort you put in. Put in little effort expect a mediocre grade. Lots of in class quizzes, online quizzes and homeworks that really help your grade. The online assignments are not very long but some can be tricky, definitely work the suggested homework problems to do well on the online assignments. |

MATH 141 Business Math I
Explains very clearly. Very helpful outside of class. Offers A LOT of outside problems to help. Offers stream videos of her working out the suggested math problems, which helps a lot. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She is an unbelievable professor!!! By far the best prof at A&M. She is young, sweet, approachable, very willing to answer all your questions, and explains formulas in way that you (personally) can understand. If you have the chance take her!!!!! She gives plenty of opportunities to help your overall grade if you fail the tests. It's hard to fail her class. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Ms. Reeder is a pretty good teacher. She is fairly young and knows that you have more classes than just math. She is available for help in her office hours and is always willing to answer any questions. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
great lecture, knows how to teach you math you havent ever seen |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Ms. Reeder is a nice person and as long as you do the suggested homework and go to class, you should be fine. A lot of people think that this class is really hard, but if you put in the effort, it's really not. She gives three tests and a final. About a third of your grade is made up of quizzes and homework that you have online and pop quizzes in class. You have five chances to take each thing online to try to get a 100, and you can ask her about ones that you don't know how to do. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She explains things really well, almost too much. She's very thorough and class is not hard to keep up with or understand. She's nice, young and cute, so she's pretty much on your side. I would definitely recommend her for 141. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Overall she is a good teacher and I would take her class again. Online quizzes and homework are the only outside of class work graded and there are multiple attempts to get the correct answer. Doing the suggested homework helps. She is easy to approach with questions and usually avaiable and knows what she is doing. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She explains information well and takes questions in class. Computer assignments and in class quizzes make up a third of your grade and she drops the lowest one of each. Do the suggested homework and you will do good on all the quizzes and go to class because missing a couple of quizzes can really hurt your grade. Her tests aren't too difficult if you study. Study for the first test because you need it help your grade. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Mrs. Reeder is awesome!!! I took a lot of math courses in high school and she made everything so much more clear!! She is a really good teacher. I think that the bad reviews she has are based on her early years of teaching because nothing said in the other reviews sounded like what I experienced. Each class is lecture and she takes time on each area. She allows plenty of time for questions and is always willing to help students. The outline of the notes is online and then she fills in the blanks during class. If you can get the notes from a partner, it's really easy to interpret and not go to class. BUT she gives 10 pop quiz's throughout the semester. They are really easy and the lowest is dropped. She will usually hint the class before that a quiz is coming up. The grades consist of 3 non cumulative tests and a cumulative final. There is also a lot of online quiz's and homework but you get 5 chances to try and it's really easy to get 100's on. She is very helpful during office hours and is always willing to stay late to help students. The tests are about 8 m/c and 6 workout problems which she is very lenient on. If you have to take this course, take Prof. Reeder!!!! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She is willing to help her students and very easy to talk to. I would highly recommend taking her for Math 141. I heard so many bad things about 141, and was kind of nervous about taking the course. But if you go into the class with an open mind and good attitude and are willing to do all the suggested hw and study it all, you will definately be okay. I have a B right now..and I went to a+ tutoring the whole semester it really made it a ton easier. There are 3 exams plus cumulative final, 11 in class quizzes (she drops lowest one), and online quizzes you do everyweek! Take Reeder!!! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Ms. Reeder is a great teacher! She just graduated recently and is already a professor here. Her tests are challenging, but she is more then willing to help you in any way you need it. She is very good at explaining the material, and she will go over it as much as is necessary. She gives 3 tests and a final, but you have to be ready for the tests, because they have the potential to bring your grade way down! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
GREAT TEACHER!!! Explains how to do things wonderful! Her notes are sooo helpful! Truly cares about her students and how well they do in the class and understand the material! Def go to her office hours...they are the best help you can get!!! If you struggle in math...take HER!!! I am horrible in math, but with her teaching i made a B!!! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Sometimes confuses herself on lectures. Very good for how young she is. She is the nicest prof ever. She is open to any questions. Attendance is a must. There are pop quizzes and you never know when they are. Homework is much harder than the lecture. Exams are half work out half multiple choice and are tough. Make sure you know everything on her old test and suggested homework. The final is easy. It is just the easiest problems from each section. If you work semi hard you can get an A. I worked but not my hardest and made a B almost an A |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Notes are all online as well as old exams and answer keys. She dropped the lowester quiz grades and homework grade. Do the online quizzes as soon as they are assigned and if you still dont understand do the suggested homework. The quiz questions were all straight from the book so as long as you do the work the class is simple. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Professor Reeder is extremely organized, she types up her notes so all you have to do is print them out and follow along during class. She's really nice and is willing to help her students, if you'll ask. She drops your lowest in class quiz grade, online homework grade and online quiz grade at the end of the semester. You usually have one online homework assignment and one online quiz assignment a week, the homework from the book is only suggested. I would do it because it helps you understand it better and she will answer questions over it if you come to her office hours. Everyone once in awhile if there was extra time at the end of class she worked out problems from the suggested homework, online homework or online quizzes that anyone had a question over. I would definitely take her class again! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She is AWESOME. She covers the material VERY well. You have to go to class. The first 2 tests are easy but be sure and STUDY for the 3rd! I highly recommend her. She is very energetic and loves math. She is very easy to get a hold of outside of class. Take her class!! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She is the best teacher for 141. She does a very good job of going slow and making sure that everyone understands the lesson. She gives out suggested homework to do and if you do that then you will do well on the exams. Come to class, her lectures are fun and if you go to class you wont have to really do any outside studying (besides the homework) and you will make an A in the class. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She explains everything very well and is very clear with what she is saying. She tries to answer all questions and is careful to go slowly enough so that everyone understands. Her tests can be hard, but she grades fairly. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Great prof! Take her if you can. She really takes her time in teaching and makes sure everyone understands. You have 3 tests and a final. Tests aren't too bad. Weekly computer HW and quizes. If you get the chance take Reeder. |

MATH 141 Business Math I
Zarestky is a great prof! She puts all of her notes online and explains the material well so that everyone can understand. She is very knowledgeable about Math 141 and can answer any questions students have. She grades fairly and will correct any grading mistakes and help out her students in any way she can. She also runs the week-in-review sessions and writes the reviews herself, so that can come in handy when studying. All of the tests had built in curves of about 4 or 5 points, which helped alot. The final was cumulative, required, and all multiple choice. It wasn't too bad though, because I ended up making an A even though I didn't work nearly as hard as I should have. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Homework is online which after getting used to, I found was WONDERFUL! There are always 15 questions, and you get five tries to make the highest grade you can. The next day after homework was due, we always had a quiz with a simpler problem based on what we had learned in the class. We had four exams total, three through the semester then a cumulative final. She was a good professor, I thought. She'd post the notes online, so you could print them out, bring them to class and follow along as she worked out problems. She'd allow questions, and try to help us understand the material if anyone got caught up on something. She's wonderful about learning names! If you ever went to her after class or emailed her or met with her, she'd make sure to memorize your name, which was comforting in such a big class! I'd go to week-in-reviews each week, too which helped. She actually taught these, too for this semester, and people around me ALWAYS would comment on how they wished she were their prof. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
she's good if you aren't good at math, she explains things slowly and is more than willing to help you is you go to her office hours...i am terrible at math but i'll make a b, of course i went to a+ also.. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She is probably the best math 141 teacher you can get...in my opinion. She is a great teacher and makes sure you know math very well. The quizes and online homework are very easy and really help boost your grade. She gives some bonus opportunities which are nice too! The best asset is she teaches the week-in-review which I STRONGLY suggest if you want to pass and do well in this class. Her test greatly resemble the week-in-review and I can honestly say I wouldn't have gotten an A or probably a B had I not gone to those. Over all a great teacher who is willing to help. |

She is a nice lady and has very clear notes and goes through each process step by step and will stop for questions. She remembers your name if you go to office hours or ask questions after class. So far, she has given a very easy extra credit opportunity. Her tests are not too difficult. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Everything is well-organized and defined and she makes sure everything has been covered. Personally, she is very nice and always willing to help; she addresses everyone's questions and even knows some students' names. The tests could be difficult, but the best way to prepare is to do the required and suggested homework. The quizzes every week are not hard, and really help you make sure you really know what has been covered. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She was VERY good at teaching the material. Lots of people had told me to not take a math class at A&M, but she was awesome at explaining everything. She also taught the Week in Reviews, which are held for all the other classes. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Zarestky is an excellent prof. She is very nice and friendly. She is willing to help, you just have to ask! Go to office hours when you can/need to. Her tests consist of 12 or so multiple choice questions and 8-12 free response questions. They're not very difficult if you know what you're doing. They're very similar to the Week-in-Reviews, so find out when and where those are and GO! Or print them off the website and do them as practice for the test. The book problems are helpful too. Her lectures are very straightforward and she gives you the powerpoints to print (PRINT THEM! It makes note taking easier). She gives a LOT of examples! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She was a very great teacher. I am not the greatest at math but she made it to where it was understandable. She gives a quiz every thursday and she has a week in review every tuesday that goes over everything you learned in the past week.

Excellent prof and nice lady. She reminded me of a high school teacher because if someone would ask a question she wouldn't mind doing the problem again and making sure everyone understood before moving on. She teaches so clearly, and her notes really helped. You can use the calculator for most problems so you don't have to remember a bunch of pesky formulas. She gives some extra credit if the class doesn't do so well on tests, and there is optional homework for every section we learn. Go to class so you can hear her explain different methods of working out the problems. She explains it better than the book does. Also, go to the Week In Reviews - they are very helpful and actually boosted my grade. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Her method of having printed-out skeleton notes that the class filled in was amazingly helpful in note-taking and learning the material. She was also very helpful outside of class when asking questions one-on-one and was very fair in how she graded the class, and would even smudge grades a little if you were consistant in attending and participating in class. She also gave partial credit on the workout section of the exams, which was a life-saver at times. Likewise, her in-class pop quizzes (often open-note or even group quizzes) were a grade boost. I received an A in the course. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She is one of the best math teachers I have ever had at any level. She explains material clearly and in a precise manner. She does not act as if she is way smarter than you, and is not afraid to make a fool of herself to get her point across about the material. She is passionate about her math and an Aggie herself, so she is very approachable. She has fair office hours, and offers help sessions and week-in-reviews. She holds extra office hours before tests. In this class we had online homework, which you got 5 chances to get a 100, in-class quizzes once a week, about half of which were take home, and four tests that were challenging but hit on the important concepts. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She is one of the first math teachers I have ever had who knows what she is talking about. She is very good in math and it shows in her teaching. Anytime you have trouble she is willing to help during office hours and she always up on the board when the next help sessions outside of class are. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Ramsey is a really great prof. her lectures are very organized- you print them at home and fill them in as she goes over it in class. The homework load isn't bad, I think all 141 classes give pretty much the same amount of homework. And her exam grades were always better than the other classes, so I don't know if she gives easier tests, or the class is just better prepared for them. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Mrs. Ramsey is a great teacher. She has her own schedule but she goes slow enough for you to get the material. She does Ilrn, so alot of assignments are online. During her officer hours, you can get one on one attention and she tries to get to know you. In class, if you ask questions or let her know you don't understand, she will stop and go back until questions are answered. You just have to ask. She has all suggested homework and quizzes once a week. If a test didn't go as well as she expected it to, she'll give a make-up quiz to get extra points. If you don't plan on coming to class, you'll be left in the dust because she doesn't give breaks very often. She doesn't give walks by math department rules and even if she's sick, she'll be there and keep you for the 50 minutes. She gets angry when people leave class early and always threatens quizzes. If something happens to where there's not enough time to complete the quiz in class, she'll give it to you as a take home quiz. She's very practical and tries to relate things to everyday life. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Great lecturer for math! She really does a very thorough job of explaining the material, and she is very nice and relates to college students well. She's young, a recent grad school graduate, and will help anyone. Her notes are the best. She emails everyone in her class when she posts notes on her website, you print them off, and bring the outlines to class. As she explains the math, you simply fill in the outlines and take additional notes as you personally need. It's great because you can take the time to focus in lecture and not scribble down notes feverishly the whole time. Well worth taking this lecturer if you have to take MATH 141. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Her quizzes were really easy and she explains the material really well. She also cares if we know the material or not. |

All of Ramsey's notes are put online and you print them off and fill them in during class. She does lots of examples and is always willing to help you. ALWAYS GO TO CLASS ON FRIDAY. She doesn't take attendance, but more often than not, we would have a pop quiz on Fridays. She gives three tests and a comprehensive final. Do the suggested problems. Her quizzes online and in-class are often taken from problems similar to the ones in the book. You won't do well in the class unless you do the suggested problems. Trust me. |

Mrs. Ramsey was by far the best math teacher I have ever had. I absolutely loved her and if you are taking Math 141, GET HER you will not regret it! She explains everything very well and gives you links to print out her notes before you come to class. She gives a quiz once a week and it is always easy. Her tests are very fair and she gave extra credit for 2 of out the 3 tests we took (not including the final). Attendance isn't mandatory, but it helped me out a lot. She is very willing to help and wants you to do well. |

She is a WONDERFUL teacher!! She explains everything and is always willing to go the extra mile for her students. There are 3 tests part multiple choice and part work out and the final is accumulative and all multiple choice. There is online homework every week, 15 questions, (all math 141 sections have these). There is also suggested homework that really helps from the text book. There is almost always a quiz on Fridays either in class or take home if there is not enough time. All in all Mrs. Ramsey is just like a high school tescher who is very helpful and explains everything very well!!! |

MATH 141 Business Math I
She is a great teacher. She teaches the course material very well and she is usually in an a good mood. I know that there were a lot of people who had other teachers for 141 that didn't understand a single thing. Mrs. Ramsey assigned work that would actually help in understanding the material. Go to class for potential pop quizzes. |

Ramsey is SOOOO good at explaining the material and the tests are very fair. Her week in reviews are definately worth going to and make sure you do all the homeworks.

MATH 141 Business Math I
This prof is a difficult one. He goes extremely fast, but he does stop when someone does not understand something. He has a great love for Math and really wants his students to understand. If you don't want to have to work and put in some time, then don't take this class with Marvit. If you are willing to try and ask for help when you need it, you should be fine. He's a nice man who teaches well. I took notes and went to weekly and exam reviews, and I ended up with an A. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
I really enjoyed Marvit's class. Yes, it's work, but you will learn so much. I got an A in it and I did not go to the weekly reviews (I thought they would waste my time since he didn't give them). He was always available for help. He really wants you to understand. He is INCREDIBLY smart mathematically, and you will do yourself a favor by taking him. My high school math classes never really made sense, but Marvit explained everything really well. My advice: do all the homework problems, buy the exam guide (and acually work it!), buy the class notes, go ask for help if you need it, study with someone else in the class, and don't blow it off. You will really learn a lot and won't waste your time and money by Q-dropping. Overall, Marvit is a great prof. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Although this class was not extremely difficult, there was a lot of work involved. We had to complete assignments (modules) on the computer once a week, plus a normal written assignment. There were also 3 tests and a culmulative final which counted 30%. This prof. does seem to really care about his students. He does drop the lowest assignment and module. I would probably take another class from him. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Marvit is overall an excellent teacher. He is more than happy to help you fully understand the material so you do well in your next math class instead of just Math 141. One of the best things about the class is that he tries to tie what you learn into a real-life situation, making the abstract concepts easier to grasp. The homework load is marginal, so plan on spending a few hours a week on this. He gives very generous partial credit on tests, but expect your grade on the third test to be much lower than the best. Probability is really hard. Overall I highly reccomend Marvit for Math 141. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Marvit's teaching style is a little different. He talks in a really intelligent fashion. He is always available for extra help and wants his students to do well in his class. He's a friendly guy. I am probably going to make an A in this class. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Professor Marvit is a good professor, but be ready to work if you want an A, or even a B. My advice is to do all the homework assignments and computer modules he gives you, and make A's on those because it will help your grade a lot.He gives three tests, and a final, all workout, and they are all pretty difficult. The first one is the easiest, so be ready because you'll wish you could take it again. I got extra help for this class by going to 4.0 and Go. It really helps and it is a big reason I made an A. They give special tutoring sessions just for Marvit. He gives a comprehensive final, so make sure you do the two review packets he gives you, and look over old tests and you should get a good grade. Also take advantage of his office hours if you get stuck on anything. The third test is the hardest, so make sure you study hard for that one. Marvit is not the most approachable person in the world, but he is there to help. The good thing about this class is he assigns no homework from the book, and attendance can only help your grade, not hurt it. Another good thing is you can print his notes from his website, but be ready because he goes very fast. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
I think he's great! His tests sometimes have crazy questions, but they are just like his week-in-reviews and night-before-drills, which you can get off his web page. So, if you understand those you will do fine. I think he is pretty amusing really, entertaining actually b/c he's soo into math and get's so excited about it. I don't mind sitting throught his classes.. they go by quickly. Right now I have a low A in there and I do very little studying. Some ppl just don't like him, but with a little effort his class isn't bad at all. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
I don't know why everybody complains so damn much about this class. Marvit is a very intelligent man and he knows ALOT about math. He is very helpful if you have any questions and I rather enjoy talking to him after class. He's a very good professor, but I recommend him to someone who is fairly intelligent to begin with because otherwise you might not follow him so well. He does tend to go through the material a little fast. I never do homework, just the required assignments and modules and i've managed to make an A so far. His tests are exactly like the week in review and night before exam drill. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
This class is not difficult if you do the homework and go to his study sessions. All of the problems on the test are similar to those in the homeword or the problems from his Week In Review. I had a high A in his class. He is very caring, and willing to help you if you have questions. It is very time consuming, so if you are lazy, take Math 141 from someone else. |

Very tough prof, as far as the work is concerned. Really fun, interesting guy though. I wouldn't recommend him if you don't like keeping up with or having a lot of homework. I loved the class... |

math really is NOT my subject, but Mr. ruvane Marvitt did make it easier. His class is challenging, but compared to the other profs, I think he is a much better choice. He has good web notes that basically outline the lecture, and if you keep up it helps alot. also, he gives lots of one-on-one attention during his office hours. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
PEOPLE really, Ruvane is not that bad of a guy. He's nothing like Bin Laden, personality wise, he's a caring and understanding guy. He goes fast, but there's SO much on his website to help you, you can't help but do well. You just have to TRY and not be a big wuss who's scared of bearded men. |

MATH 141 Business Math I
I WENT INTO THIS CLASS PRETTY NERVOUS ABOUT MARVIT, BUT I ENDED UP GETTING AN A. HIS TESTS ARE MUCH HARDER THAN ANY OTHER PROF, AND THEY ARE WORK OUT, NOT MULTIPLE CHOICE. BUT IF YOU GO TO HIS WEEK IN REVIEWS EVERY WEEK, IT'LL HELP ALOT. I ALSO WENT TO 4.0&GO WHICH HAD A SPECIFIC REVIEW JUST FOR MARVIT. IT'S AT LIKE 1AM MOST OF THE TIME THE NIGHT BEFORE THE TEST, BUT IT HELPED SOO MUCH! IF YOU LIKE MATH AND ARE WILLING TO PUT TIME INTO THIS CLASS, MARVIT ISN'T SO BAD. BUT IF YOU AREN'T WILLING TO STUDY, DO NOT TAKE THIS PROF. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Mr. Marvit is a true students instructor. Take him only if you want to learn the material. He is NOT for those wishing to make it by the skin of their teeth. He has mastered the material that he teaches and passes that passion on through his instruction. He provides many opportunities for the student to gain the grade that they desire to work for. Do all of the modules, homework assignments, and take home assignments. There is alot of work entailed in this class. I spent, on average, three to five hours studying for every one hour of lecture. If you follow the above suggestion you will have no problem with his exam. He does not try to trick you, only to make sure that you inderstand the material you are being tested over. I would take him for any class that he offers. He has truly been my best instructor at A&M! |

math 141 is not a fun class... no matter who you take. but i personally liked marvit. he was willing to work with you and help outside of class. the tests were similar but much easier than the graded assignments, so i felt prepared. i printed out and did the test reviews on my own (didnt go to his review) and made a's or high b's on all of the exams. a lot of people are hard on him, but i felt like he explained everything well. i have an extreme attendance problem, but got an A in the class. |

First of all, I do not give Greg a 5 because I think he is EASY. Greg is a tough prof, but he is by far the best math teacher I have ever had. He keeps the lecture going at a pretty good pace, if you aren't slow you can keep up. He gives quizzes, BUT as long as you have been paying attention they are pretty easy most people I knew get an A or B on them. I sat in on other profs with friends, and Greg was the best. HERE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART! His tests are very tricky. Remember, this for the first test. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Greg is my favorite prof so far. He is great! I even think he is smarter than the book itself. The class demands a lot of concentration but he makes it kind of fun. If you ever start to struggle he will help you tremendously in his office hours. He gives three exams, a final, a quize about once a week, and homework every two weeks. His homework and quizzes are only three questions at the most. He is great, take him if you are lucky enough!!! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Greg is an awesome instructor. He makes math fun and interesting, and if you ever have any questions, you can stop him and tell him to do the problem again. He makes himself available whenever possible, and takes time for his students when they come to office hours. I would definately take another math course from him. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
I really liked this math class. He give you homework each time, and he give you 2-3 specific problems that you turn into him once a week. (you know exactly what to turn in each time so you have a chance to really work them out). He usually gives a quiz on the day the homework is due. His tests are pretty hard. But if you get the basics down anyone can figure them out. He is fun in class, and will make you laugh. He is awesome in the fact that he loves the calculator. He teaches the shortest method possible for each problem, usually a calculator method. Willing to work with you at office hours. I had a really hard exam scheduled the same day as one of his and he let me take it during office hours to make it up so I could study for the other exam. I definately think he is a good prof to take. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Greg Klein is a great teacher. I am not very good in math at all, but he taught me the information so well that I feel like I can do math now anytime. He teaches at very fast pace though, that is the only problem with Greg Klein. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
If you are not really a math person, this class probably won't be easy for you, but if you have to take it, get Klein. He is an excellent professor. he teaches well and is nice if you have questions or don't understand something. I recommend him. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Greg is an awesome teacher. He makes learning hard things fun and easy. I recommend him to anyone who is going to take a class that he offers. Math at A&M is difficult and Greg is the best one to help you learn and understand. He is more than willing to help you do your homework or understand problems. I am getting a B in his class and I would probably get a C if i had any other teacher. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Klein spends time answering homework questions every class. Sometimes he does for a long time, sometimes it is not for that long. Class is not required to attend. He does give take home quizzes that you have to bring to class though to turn in. I would turn them in then leave. This was good because I did not have to stay if I did not want to. The homework is online and you have multiple attempts at each question. Problems on the test resemble the homework. He posts notes online after each class. The tests are multiple choice. The final exam takes problems that have been on the other tests with just the numbers changed. The final counts as 20% of your final grade. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Attendance is not mandatory! He starts every class period by asking if anyone has questions about the homework and usually spend 20-25 minutes just answering questions. He likes to be dry/sarcastic which makes for funny moments in the class at times. He seems to genuinely care about whether or not you understand the material, especially if you pursue help outside of class. There were 3 exams, each 20 questions and entirely multiple choice. The best way to study for those is to go back over the web assign homework and practice alternate versions of the problems since most of them are word-problem related. This class really isn't that hard if you stay up on the homework and read the ebook if you don't understand how to do the homework just from the lecture. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
His lectures are always to the point, no nonsense. He answers questions at the beginning of classes over the homework on WebAssign and will answer questions at the end of class. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I

||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Very straightforward, teaches the material well. If you're "forced" to take this class, don't worry at all. He teaches effectively in class and puts his notes online. Tests are 20 questions, multiple choice and are easy enough if you do all of the homework. He can also be funny at times, but a bit err...quirky...at other times. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Though some may say that Dr. Klein is difficult to understand and hard to pay attention to, he is a very nice professor that's willing to help during his office hours and explains mistakes in a very simple way. There are only three exams, so one must do well on all of them, lest they want anything else besides an A. |

MATH 141 Business Math I
Very fun class. Doesn't move to fast and explains very well, plus she puts her notes on the interest so you only have to fill them in. She goes over the notes on the overhead so you can copy as you go along. Homework usually once a week that is easy and ranges from 5 to 15 problems. I went to SI for help and made hundreds on all of them. We had quizzes every thursday over stuff we just went over, just 4 or 5 question, relatively easy. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She is the sweetest person ever and the best professor! all my friends had trouble with 141 because of their teachers but she does a great job teaching and makes it as easy as possible. She wants her class to do well. She puts her notes on the net and you fill them in in class but if you miss class she puts them on her door. I definitely recommend her and would take her again if I could. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
I really enjoyed this class. Cox is alot more involved and caring of her students than the other 141 teachers. There are many resources to help you if your having trouble. You print off fill in the blank notes before every class and if you miss class she leaves a complete set of notes in her box. You have homework every week that you can get an easy 6 points for completing it and another 4 points for getting two random question correct. Homework is a good way to keep up with the class and make sure you understand the material before the exam. There is also extended homework problems listed on her website that help for the quizes. She gives occasional bonus for attending class that really helps you grade. Her website also contains exam reviews and week by week reviews that help explain the material if your behind or missed class. Exams can be tricky but if you study you will be fine. Encourage taking her if you want to do well in this class. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Mrs. Cox is a good teacher. All class notes are on the internet, along with practice problems and other available exercises. Lectures are not at all boring, and she takes the time to explain everything. If students have questions she is more than happy to explain the topic differently or work individually with students. In addition to being a good teacher, she is also fair. Having numerous problems with iLrn, she sent out emails notifying students of the issue, sometimes pushing back the due date and other times giving extra takes. Having a teacher that is fair in this respect is a major plus. She also cares about each student and suprisingly knows many of the students names, even though she has probably 300 students. The tests are not too difficult. Everything is covered in the fill-in-the-blank notes or during class. As long as you go to class every day and pay attention you will have all the information you need. The textbook is only needed to get homework problems out of (avg 5-8 a week), and the math on the web book is only needed for the registration code (which you can buy online for $12, instead of the book for around $40). Quizzes once a week, an online module once a week, one hw assignment a week all worth 10pts each, 3 tests worth 100pts and a comprehensive final worth 200pts. She also gives extra credit periodically, some to go on a test and others to replace low module grades. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Mrs. Cox is very nice lady. The class is very structured. You learn one or two sections per class (her notes outlines are available online). There is usually one quiz a week and one homework assignment a week (only six problems). The tests are a combination of mult. choice, free response, and true/false. The tests are difficult, and I found it necessary to do the suggested homework to do well. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Mrs. Cox is one of the nicest professors you will meet here at A&M. She will help you in any way she can and will spend as much time as needed with you to help you understand the material. She has three tests and a cumulative final. She gives bits and pieces of bonus assignments here and there, but be sure to do them no matter how small the value. They might change you a letter grade in the end. I got a 96 on the first test, a 73 on the second, and a 83 on the third, and a 90 on the final. I still pulled out an A. The quizzes and homework help your grade a lot. Her lectures are extremely well-organized and she puts the outlines on the internet so you can print them out ahead of time. If you put forth the effort and go to her with any questions you will do well in this class. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She is a very good professor who really knows what she is talking about. Her quizzes and mods are fairly easy and she gives really good notes for you to study. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Awesome teacher! She is really sweet and tries to learn everyone's name. She had notes online you have to print out and take to class while she fills in the blanks on them. There were examples on the notes which were helpful. There were some quizzes in class but they were very easy and you can look over your notes right before hand. Tests were multiple choice, several work out problems and several true/false. If you don't understand something, she will gladly explain it again during class. The homework is short, very easy and helps you to learn the material for the tests. She gives tons of suggested problems that really help to practice for the test. Very clear and straightforward! Take her! |

||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Mrs. Cox is absolutely fantastic! Highly recommend her. She is fair and gives detailed, follow-along, fill in the blank notes for every lecture. She moves slowly to ensure everyone is on the same page, but not too slow to where you're constantly bored. Going to class is recommended because she shows you shortcuts and hints on how to solve some problems. Tests and quizzes aren't too bad, but they do require studying especially for the true/false portion that is based on theory. Cox is wonderful at answering questions and grading VERY quickly. Homework is important to do because problems like the homework will be on the tests. She is very generous and drops the lowest quiz grade and allows your final grade to replace your lowest test grade which was such a blessing for me! Not many teachers are that generous. Highly recommend taking Cox she won't waste your time and you can count on her to be caring and get you the grade you need as long as you do homework and stay updated on the notes. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
The best prof I have had here at A&M. Print off the notes from the internet, go to class and fill them in, use them to do the online homework and study from and it will be an easy A. She has in-class quizzes about every other week with ten questions, three exams and a final. She will do alot to help your grade, for example, dropping lowest quiz grade and dropping a few lowest homework grades and also replacing your lowest test grade with your final exam grade if you do better on it than the test. She is willing to help with any questions in her office hours or before/after class and definitely made class enjoyable with some family stories. I would love to have her again. |

MATH 141 Business Math I
Everyone makes her sound horrible and she's not at all. She gives you notes online on her website that has all of her information and in class you just go over the notes. There are 3 tests and a final, and this semester the tests were online and the final was in class and multiple choice. I thought the tests were fairly easy and the final was realllly easy. ALso, there is a silent curve at the end of classs. There are online homework assignments and pop quizzes. The online homework is boring but easy and you can do it up to 5 times so it's really easy to get a 100, and she'll work out any of the problems for you in class. She drops your 3 lowest grades too. She really seemed like she wanted everyone to learn and I would definitely recommend her. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She is a very helpful teacher when it comes to explaining things. She uses everyday examples that makes it easier to understand. If you don't understand something she is more than happy to try and explain it another way. If you go to her office hours she will help you with any online homework problems and sometimes will even do the whole thing, depending on how many people are there. I strongly recommend her! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
I went to her office hours every week and she was alwasy willing to help...very nice but can seem a bit crazy at times. This class is pretty tough so you have to study for it...I recommend 4.0 and Go and all the week-in reviews...Dr. Scarborough tries really hard to help her students but still...the class is just really tough...it was mostly the online exams my class had...they were horrible. Although she did tell us we would be getting a silent curve so hopefully that will help. Show her that you are trying and she will definately help you out. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
This course was really really hard, but Ms. Scarborough was probably the most helpful you could ask for. She has a million and one helpful tools. She presented the information clearly and welcomed questions. She is nice, a bit intimidating but if you are trying she wants to see you succeed. She was extremely helpful. The class had 4 tests and a final. The material on the tests is what is taught, only a bit more challenging at times. She was a good teacher. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She is such a sweet lady and wants her students to do well. Try to go to every lecture because she gives unannounced pop quizzes and she drops your three lowest hw/quiz grades. It really helps if you do attend lecture because she does explain the material and does a lot of examples so even if your aren't the brightest math student you can still do well. Also go through all the problems in the notes she gives you for the test because she puts similar ones like those on her tests. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She's a pretty good teacher. Although her quizzes are usually unannounced and can be difficult, she does prepare you for the tests and is there for help if needed. One thing that I personally liked was that she used examples usually that were not in the book, which could be very helpful. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She explained the material very well and step-by-step. If anybody ever had a question in class she didn't hesitate to re-explain it with more detail. The material is difficult but she can make it very simple. If you go to class, it is not hard at all to make a B. There is a lot of outside-class help that she offers as well, which is INCREDIBLY beneficial if you get stuck. She's easy to talk to and smiles a lot. Sometimes during quizzes, she gets a call from 'The Great Pumpkin' who tells her that the class can work together :) all in all, I thought she was a very effective teacher and would take another class from her any day! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Great prof! She is a wonderful person and very sweet. She really enjoys teaching and cares about whether the student's learn or not. The one piece of advice I can give is to DO THE PROBLEMS HER WAY!!! Do not go to 4.0 and Go or A+ Tutoring thinking they will help you on the test. She grades according to her personal rubric which she clearly defines in class. Definitely go to class. Random unpredictable quiz dates although she does seem to favor Mondays and Fridays when students are less likely to show up to encourage higher attendance rates. She is very approachable. Always answers questions to the best of her ability and without judgement. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Scarborough is an awesome math prof. You will have to work in her class, and she gives about 10 quizzes that are all tough if you dont keep up with the material. However, she really wants to make sure you understand the material. If you have a question she will try her best to make sure you comprehend the concept. If you did not take at least pre-cal in high school, I wouldn't take her, because she moves at a quicker pace than you are most likely used to. But as long as you keep up with the work this should be a great class. I'm making a C because I never do any of the homework, and i never study for her class. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
For people who think math is their strongest subject, this class with this prof is super fun and pretty easy. Math has always been one of my strongest subjects and so my lowest test grade was a 93. I think she's an awesome professor. She cares almost too much if her students learn her materials. She provides you with all of her exams from previous semesters so that you can see exactly how she words her tests. She puts her previous exams online, along with reviews for every test, reviews for every lesson and book problems- the best part about it is that she also posts videos of her working out every problem for every single thing that she puts online. The amount of resources is huge. If you aren't a math person, there's no reason at all that you couldn't at least get a B. She has 3 tests, online homeworks, and 1 cumulative final. On every test and final you have an opportunity to get 5 bonus points, just by filling out your scantron correctly. Absolutely take this professor, she's got to be one of the best math 141 teachers at A&M. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Dr. Sherry was very helpful, but the test problems were a lot harder than the homework problems were. She does however offer a ton of help if you need it. Go to class, work as many problems as possible and work yourself against the clock. I failed the first 2 tests because I ran out of time. |

She explained concepts well and always knew what she was talking about. The online homework and in class quizzes were pretty easy if you pay attention in class. Although in the end they only make up 25% of your grade. If you do the online homework and go to the week in reviews the tests aren't too hard. The questions are straightforward so she isn't trying to trick you. Attendance to class is pretty helpful but not required. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Her tests are pretty straightforward. I didn't think there were too many tricky questions. She responds to e-mail faster than any of my other professors, and her replies are helpful. It helps a lot to go the week-in-review or spend a few minutes after class to ask her for help if you don't understand something. Don't take the online hw lightly they could mean the difference between one full letter grade even if they're only 25%. At first she may seem intimidating because she has a sort of blunt humor, but she is actually really approachable. I've always been one of those students who asks lots of questions, but I never felt like she belittled me in any of her responses. |

She was an excellent instructor. A lot of people were not very crazy about her, of course what can you expect with a hard course. She was very straight forward with the information and what to expect on the tests. Also she was very helpful in her office hours or when I approached her before or after class. The quizzes and homework were a nice grade booster. Also the tests were not too difficult if you put in the needed time and preparation. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
This is a pretty hard course, considering I did not have a very strong math background in high school, but I really liked the class. She provides you with a lot helpful revies that you have to do on your own. Most are not really for a grade,but they are recommended and helpful. You do have to do WebAssign assignments for a grade, but you have several tries to do them if you don't get the grade you want. |

While the subject as a whole is not all that interesting, Prof Lackey tries to teach in a way that helps everyone understand. She is good about going over all her material and the workload for the class is limited to online homework. Her tests are relatively fair and accurate of what we learned and none were overly difficult. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Lackey was very straightforward when it came to what was going to be on the tests. She gives homework that is mandatory and you can do it online, but for me that was a pro because I was able to learn all the material and study just through doing the homework. Different people are going to have different experiences with this prof, if you are relatively good at math this will be a straightforward and relatively easy A, if you aren't I would recommend another prof. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
I love this prof! I took math 141 in the fall and got a D but I took her class in the spring I made an A. When I took this prof she was awesome. You could print the notes off the web and fill in the work as she went, which made it really simple to keep up. Her tests were really easy as well, if you study. There is quite a bit of online hw but she gives you plenty of time to do it. Also the practice problems really help too. Some people may say she is hard but I think she is a great prof. Take her for MATH 141! |

She explains things thoroughly and explains every detail of the work. She is very fair when it comes to grading. Often times when you show her something you don't think is fair, she will meet you half way and give you a higher grade. She breaks the tests into two days so you don't run out of time (which is awesome). One day is the calculator section, while the other is non-calc. On the non-calc section, you can receive partial credit. She uses Cengage for homework, and always gives enough time to do the assignment (usually a week) and if a few students ask her to push back the due date, she usually does. She is always willing to help and provide information about Week In Reviews and other resources. I definitely recommend her! |

First of all you refer to her as Jenn. She is very laid back and definitely has a sense of humor. She is willing to help during her office hours and she is very approachable. Her lectures is very clear and go by very quickly. You do have to complete your online homework, which can get difficult, but it is a great way to pull up your grade. Her quizzes and tests are fair provided you study well. On some quizzes you get GREAT surprises. She offers great extra-credit work. Attendance is required, but it doesn't go unrewarded (i.e. extra points at the end of the semester). I highly recommend Jenn Whitfield she is one of, if not the best, math professors at A&M. |

MATH 141 Business Math I
Jen is a great teacher that wants you to learn and do good. My first semester I took 151 with a bad prof and actually got up early to go to her lecture also. This semester I am taking 141 with her and I am really enjoying the class. She gives tons of extra credit (I have over 100) and wants to help you out. Her quizzes are fairly easy and so are her tests. You have 4 tests and at least 10 quizes. She does not assign homework to turn in...I did not buy a book and I have not missed it yet. She does not try to fail everyone..she wants everyone to do well and learn the material. I would choose Jen for any math class if she is a prof. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She is always willing to help when you don't understand. All her notes on online, and she uses them to teach the class. If you go to class and spend alittle time out of class on the subject you should have no problem doing good in this class. I would take another class from her. |

Ms. Allen is a great math teacher. She cares about her students and wants everyone to do well on her tests. She tries to make her tests the easiest the department will let her. Her best policy is that there are 3 exams and 1 final. If your final is better than your lowest exam she will replace that grade, there counting the final twice. Also, the second test is the hardest, however, because our class average was low she gave a 10 bonus point assignment. I would also reccomend going to the week in reviews. Mine were with Dr. Poage (who is also another awesome math prof). They were a great review and helpful because they were repetitive. Overall, Allen is a great teacher! Take her or Dr. Poage!!! |

Overall she was great!! Math141 sucks, but she made it possible. She is more that willing to help all students and makes an effort to get to know you. She also seems to really care about each individuals grade and does everything she can to curve tests and give extra credit. There are 12 quizes throughout the semester (about one every week). These are very important!!!! I can't not stress this is enough, the top 10 of these equals a test grade, so if you do the homework that could be an easy A test grade, most of her quiz questions come straight from the homework. TAKE ALLEN, shes great!!! |

She really does care about her students, unlike many other Math profs. She is more than willing to help you out. Go visit her and make a relationship, she is really cool. The class is challenging, but it isn't too hard. Many other profs will count off for ticky-tack things, but she wont. If you get a chance to take her, DO IT. |

MATH 141 Business Math I
Allen was probably my favorite prof last semester. She is willing to help, doesn't make you feel stupid for asking a question, and she seems to care about her students, rather than just math. Go to office hours, if she knows your name, things are better. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She is really nice and is concerned that her students understand what she is teaching. She works out alot of problems like what is on the homework ( which you dont have to do ) during class. Tests consist on multiple choise and work out problems. Really easy class. |

MATH 141 Business Math I
He is incredible! He's just a very nice guy, and he really wants his students to learn. I am an English major and therefore Math is not my thing, but I am expecting a high B-low A in this class. Go to his office hours! He is really helpful and would love to get to know you. He also learns all of his students names within the first week or two, and will always call you by name, which is nice! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
He is the cutest, sweetest man! he knows all of his students by name and helps. we had online video lectures and work in class, and he genuinely tried to help all of his students. because the video lectures were confusing, a lot of the students dropped. he saw this and offered a LOT of extra credit chances and curved a lot. he loves his students! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
He is a very kind fellow. Our class structure was slightly different in that he he didn't lecture, we watched lectures online and did group activities in class. He had weekly quizzes. He, again, is a nice, personable guy, and very helpful. I would recommend taking Lawler for 141 which is a somewhat difficult course for most. |

He is a really good professor. He cares about whether or not students learn. Mr. Lawler is always willing to help any student that doesn't understand something and will work with you. He is always available during office hours. Week-In-Reviews are posted weekly, and old WIRs are posted with solutions. He was never really strict about anything, except texting in class. Don't hesitate to ask him for help. Every now and then we had group work. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
This is a really nice prof. I brought my test to him after every test with questions and I usually always received some points back. If he knows who you are, he will do everything he can to help you get the grade you are aiming for. I needed a 98 on the final to get an A in the class and I made a 92 and he curved me up. So definitely go to his office hours. |

Heather is a great prof: She provides lecture notes to fill out for each class, they kept me awake and focused and they emphasize what's noteworthy. I think she does an excellent job of explaining formulas and problems step by step, like a student talking to a student not a math genius who talks above everyone else's level. Shes a good lecturer. My advice is *keep up* with the recommended homework problems. It's like a couple a night and if it's fresh on your mind from the lecture, it's really easy to do. Doing the homework before the required online modules make the modules a breeze. I tried a couple times with out having done the homework and wasted so much time -time I might as well have spent doing the homework. Her expectations are fair and she's a sweet person to talk to, very accomodating. If you keep up with practice problems, ask her questions in her office hours if youre lost on a problem or two, it's an easy A. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Very good prof. It is extremely important to her that you understand the material. She post an outline to the notes for each class that cover more than you will need to know for the tests. The book in this class is not necessary unless math is one of your weaknesses. I never used mine. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She teaches very well and can connect with her students. If you have any problems go and talk to her...she will help you! I really reccomend this prof! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
I took her for Math 141 and she was great! She's very nice and will help you if you go to her office hours. Her tests and homework are very reasonable and if you do your work you should make an A. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Heather is one of the nicest professors I've had. She is always prepared for class and is willing to help you with any questions or problems you have with the material. All you have to do is make the effort to email her or go to her office hours. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
GOOD, could be a little bit better but not much better. I don't who gave here the bad review about how she grades hard and does not like shortcut methods or calculators... because she is the exact opposite. She tries to make things as pain free as possible, and always encourages the use of calcs and shortcuts, but also wants you to show your work when applicable, so that she can give you partial credit... but will not count it wrong if you have the right answer and do not show your work. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
There are weekly quizzes, which I averaged a B on, but if you do the optional homework at the same time you're learning it in class, you should do fine on them. She knew my name, which is impressive in a class with 100+ people, and is always willing to help. If you can't make office hours, e-mail her, she'll usually respond within a few hours. Her first test caught me off guard (70), and then I started attending help sessions and made a 88 on the second one. If it weren't for the math help sessions and week in review sessions I probably wouldn't have passed (math isn't my strong subject). REQUEST FOGLE!!! If her class is full, take Bollinger (she did the week in reviews). |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Heather is a great teacher. She provides notes for you to fill out in class. There are 3 tests and a comprehensive final. All of the homework is online, as are some of the quizzes. She is always around to answer questions. |

Very nice lady, for being a college professor and trying to teach objectives over a very confusing subject, I think she was pretty good at it. Although if you forget to print the notes one day before coming to class you are pretty much screwed that day. Go to the Week in reviews, those help all the way. 4.0 and go helped too, but the week in reviews were awesome, I went to a Math 166, because they are basically the same class and that was the only time of the week I could go. If you had any questions at all they would stay later and answer them. Take advantage of all the help you can get. Also take advantage of the videos she posts on her websites. |

MATH 141 Business Math I
Professor Epstein is the only person who has been able to teach me math and make me understand the concepts! She is an amazing woman. I took the class honors and I was really scared that it would go too fast for me, but she is constantly available for tutoring and offers tons of study resources. The online homework was perfect for me. If you attempt it early and don't understand some problems, you can print it out and go in to her office and she will help you find the way to solve them. I also enjoyed the fill-in-the-blank notes. It let me concentrate on what she was teaching instead of having to rush to copy down everything she was saying. She also offers extra credit at the end of the semester. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Dr. Epstein really wants you to learn in her class. She has weekly review sessions to go over material and get you ready for upcoming tests. While I wouldn't say this class is easy, it's manageable. Look out for hidden bonus points on the tests! She explains things very well and is always willing to help you learn. |

MATH 141 Business Math I
Dr. Epstein is such a great professor and this course was probably the most useful course I have taken at A&M thus far. This was an honors course so there were only about 12 students and she answered any questions we had very thoroughly. Lectures were easy to follow along with (you have to attend them or it is hard to catch up) and the exams were very fair. There was a weekly quiz that forces you to study on weeks you don't have an exam (and when you do have an exam, you have already studied a bit) and homeworks online that you have to keep up with. She gave partial credit on exams which was VERY helpful. This is a hard class but it is fair and you are learning math skills that are important. The lab that went along with this honors section was also helpful (but easier to get an A in), you learn lots about Excel. I took this class right before taking the GRE and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Take this class if you have the opportunity to!! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Dr. Epstein is a good professor. She is very understandable in class and also answers any questions. She posts all homework and all notes online. Attendance is voluntary, although there is usually a quiz once a week and pop quizes every now and then. She communicate very often through email and offers several outside of class helps. There is a cumulative final, and all exams are multiple choice and work-out. |

Mrs. Nite is very approachable and always willing to help. I went to her office hours and she was always willing to help. She was a very nice and understanding lady. There are 3 tests and a final exam which I didn't find too difficult. My advice is to do the suggested homework in the book so that you can have lots of practice, that's how I made an A. She doesn't curve but she always drops the lowest homework, quiz, and in class quiz grade and gave us extra credit on one test. Go to class!! It's not bad, print the notes because they are easy to follow. But she gives in class quizzes and if you miss them, it will catch up. Class isn't too boring. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Mrs. Nite is a good teacher. She is always willing to make sure her students learn. There are 4 exams (3 tests and 1 final). She also has quizzes that she gives during class...but she drops the lowest 2 quiz grades which helps! This class was no very difficult. I made a B and I didn't even buy the book! I would recommend this prof if you need a math course!! |

Hands down the best professors I have ever had. Truly cares about her students, if you take the time to go in for office hours (which she does by appointment as well as having set office hours) she will make sure you understand everything before you leave. Gives great reviews the class before tests. Had the entire class over for a delicious home cooked meal. I enjoyed her so much I took MATH 142 with her as well. If you do what she expects of you (which is very reasonable) you will get an A and learn more than you ever have before |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Dr. Simpson is by far my favorite professor by far!! I love her. She is an amazing professor in and out of the classroom! Her learning style is different, but she is willing to work with you to ensure that you learn the material. She hates to see a student who cares about their success fail. Make yourself known, she will work with you, but you have to work yourself. Looking back I could have gotten an A in the class, but I slacked off and rarely studied and got a B. Take Dr. Simpson if you can!! I hate math but I would take a class from her anyday!! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Take this class if possible. The Honors class is pretty easy and Dr. Simpson is so nice. She explains everything well, and it is very easy to make an A if you have had any math at all. |

MATH 141 Business Math I
The class consists of about ten quizzes, (he gives one every Thursday in the last ten minutes of class) three tests, and one final. Quizzes are easy unless they are take-home quizzes in which case he feels compelled to make them unreasonably difficult. If you get a take home quiz go to a tutoring service and ask for help. A tutoring service-not some friends who are good at math (I tried that and got a fifty)- when he gave us the first one not a single person in our class of about two hundred people received full credit. He dropped about three of our lowest quiz grades but no one knew he was going to do that until he told us about a week before the final. The final is all multiple choice and very fair. It is cumulative and there is quite a bit of material covered so he doesn't have to make it unnecessarily hard. He is a very intelligent man and a good teacher. When he looks at a problem he considers the steps needed to come to a solution for only a few moments and then explains it all in logical order. Sometimes he does this a little too fast but if you don't freak out you can keep up. He is good about answering your questions in class; you just have to have the courage to speak up if you are confused about something. If you are good at math you can probably get an A on all the exams just by doing the online homework and studying the quizzes you took prior to the upcoming test (this is what I did but I ended up with a 90.1 so I would suggest putting in a little more effort to be safe). If you are not good at math you must be extremely conscientious about doing extra problems and going to extra tutoring if you want to get an A. His office hours are usually uncrowded and he is extremely helpful when he is teaching only to you. He recognizes and appreciates your effort if it is really there and he will find ways to reward you for it. |

Ada is great! she is really laid back and down to earth. she has a bit of an accent but she is not hard to understand. Tests were very representative of the material. There are always office hours to go to for help and she provides a lot of ways for you to get free easy help. I didn't buy the textbook and it would have been a waste of money if I had you don't really need it. Ada was one of my favorite professors I had this fall. she is really entertaining and funny and very easy to worl with if you have a conflict with tests or quizes. i have never had a problem staying awake in her class. TAKE HER YOU WONT BE SORRY! |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
Compared to other Math 141 profs, Boralevi is awesome! Math 141 isn't the easiest subject so obviously you will have to put effort into the class, but she is a very helpful and understanding prof. Unlike other math profs, if you don't understand something she will take the time to explain it, and if you still don't get it, her office hours definitely help a lot too. She's actually kind of funny too. I HIGHLY suggest going to every class. She gives GREAT, organized notes with examples that are basically parallel to the online homework and even quiz and exam questions. Out of all the Math 141 professors, Boralevi is definitely one of the best ones. I'm not the most math savvy person, but I ended up with an A. So it is possible! |

She puts a lot of resources on her website that help a lot when doing homework and studying for exams. She's really nice and willing to help outside of class. She teaches mainly by example rather than drilling theory and formulas, which I found helpful. Also, for several concepts she'll just teach you how to do it with the calculator, which made some things way easier. Her quizzes are pretty easy, and tests are predictable since they're mainly from the book homework. |
||

MATH 141 Business Math I
She is a good teacher and gives help if necessary. She starts off VERY easy at the beginning, but gets harder, so you can't blow it off. Generally easy, weekly homework and weekly quiz. She doesn't take attendance, but plan on being there on Wednesday to turn in homework (or give it to a friend to turn in) and Friday for quiz. There is also an online quiz due every Sunday night, but they are easy if you know the material. She answers email very quickly if you write to her, and keeps her website updated so you know what's going on if you miss class. |

nHe is a really helpful and understanding prof. He explains things VERY thoroughly in class and provides great notes, plus you can print off the power point slides prior too class. He is always very willing to help explain things during his office hours. There is online homework, but ultimately it's good practice. You have quizzes once a week which are very straight forward, often the practice problems he posted on the web. The tests are challenging, but not tricky. If you understand the material it is very similar to that. He is also very funny, there are some slight language barriers, (such as not knowing what a Skittle was during a probability problem) but you can understand 100% of what he says. I would definitely take him again. Also, once our class average was low for a test, he didn't curve but we had an additional quiz in which we could earn points. Nice person!nn |

Hester offers SO much oppourtunity for extra credit. If you work hard, you can get and A. Hester makes the book HW optional and I stopped doing it halfway through the semester, simply because I felt that I didn't need it. It is, however great practice and an excellent indictor for how well you will do on quizzes/exams. She curved every test, quite alot--a good 10 points. From talking to friends, Hester is for sure one of the better, if not the best 141 teacher. Go to the help sessions and/or week in review if you need it, great resource! |

good prof, nice guy, i made and A because i went to office hours and reviews. keep upi and you'll be ok. he curves and gave extra credit on the third test. Final was pretty easy if you studied. He give takehome quizzes that were easy and brought your grade up. Online homework sucked but all math 141 classes have to do so if you go to the reviews they do each problem and its not too bad. Go to office hours if you get lost. He likes to see that your trying. You don't need to come to class if you follow the book. |
