She has pop quizzes and very picky on tests but in class she is awesome and nice and helpful. Homework policy good but she once gave me no credit for hw bc i didn't write down the original problem on 1 question.

The in-class experience is a fairly good one - Ms. Palekar is a very nice, genuine person. My one issue is with the tests - they are often very long and even the more mathematically-inclined students in the class receive inconsistent grades. She has addressed the issue with us in class but even after doing so did not improve the issue to the extent that we believed she would. All in all, if you are in this class, be prepared to be happy with grades in the B family.

Mrs. Palekar is the literal greatest person and math teacher in the entire world. She sincerely cares about her students and honestly wants them to do well. If you pay close attention in class and study a good amount you will do well and learn a lot!

I've had Palekar twice and she has really improved from when I first had her. She gives pop quizzes, which vary in difficulty. Her tests are not difficult if you clearly understand the material. If you don't get it, you will have trouble. Her homework policy is one of the best in the school. She is really nice in class, although seems to take on a different, more rigid personality when discussing grades. Homework is in reasonable quantities.
