Ms. Lory is so funny and really kind. She has a great personaility and her class lectures are a lot fun. However, she is one of those teachers that makes the notes and homework really easy but the exams are really hard. She is one of those teachers that wants to teach you the basics and expects you to apply it on the exams. You have to study really hard for her tests. But she is a nice person and she is helpful if you go into her during 7th.

You might not have that strong of an opinion on her at first, but she REALLY grows on you throughout the school year. Actually pay attention while doing the homework — ask questions if you need to during homework corrections, or use CalcChat like me — and read the notes carefully, since they're actually the best thing ever. Put in the effort you need and you'll be fine, especially if you have a decent understanding of math. Lory is hella chill, and she's pretty approachable. Very fair teacher.

As a teacher she cannot explain the notes/ chapter at all during her class lecture, if you need extra help she can be good at explaining it then, but during class it just doesn't make sense. She seems to have a lot of person issues that she should not involve the class in, but does anyways. It takes an average of 2 weeks for her to grade each test and last semester it seemed like the only kids who got A's went out of their way for a tutor to explain what the teacher should be explaining.

She is a great person and really knows the math well, but her class is just so hard. Her CP math analysis class feels like an Ap class and hands down the hardest class of mine aside from my 4 ap classes. her tests are really difficult, and are weighed at 60% of your grade, and a lot of people were unable to get A's last semester. She is really nice and will help if you ask for it.

Very nice and definitely the most jolly and contagiously happy teacher in the school. There's a lot of homework problems (especially before tests) and the tests themselves are quite difficult. Her grade weighting is ridiculously strange. Homework is only 10%, quizzes (which are really easy) 10%, and 60% tests. This makes it really easy to screw your grade up and really hard to get back up. A very laid back class and not something to really stress about going to. She's pretty great.

Ms. Lory is pretty much the only teacher that got me through my junior year. I wish I could have her again because 1) Her notes were great and the test followed them exactly : there were no surprises 2) She really cared about me and how I was doing

Ms. Lory is a very good teacher! Her note packets are very helpful and her lessons make the material seem fairly easy. My only complaint would be that her tests are usually much harder than what we went over in class. Overall, her class is fun and productive.
