Mr. Rowe is much better for PreAP Algebra 2. Actually, REGULAR Algebra 2 is better at getting you ready for PreCal and Calculus. Good luck if you have her.
I failed her class by two points. I also went to every help session she had, did all my homework, and had an outside tutor, all of this to her knowledge. Not the best teacher.
I had Mrs. Ballard over 5 years ago. She was one of the best math teachers I ever had. Her class was very straight-forward and easy if you do the homework.
Class Material geared more to previous days homework, not new material
Algebra 1 can get boring, buy she will work with you to make sure you understand
