She is the easiest teacher I ever had even though I got removed from Algebra Honors in 7th grade, but I re attended her class in 8th grade. Overall fab teacher.

Ms. Adams doesn't seem like a very professional teacher. She always makes mistakes when showing an example to the class and every time its the students who catch the mistake. It's a pretty easy A for me because I already learned ahead during summer, but if you were to just learn from her class, she doesn't really teach you that well and she barely teaches it to you. She also has favorites.

I am in her geometry honors class. Her class is extremely challenging but she makes sure we understand it though. =) I just wish her tests were easier. We get less pop quizzes though. good thing is that once you're in her geometry class, you can't get kicked out even if you're failing. So that's nothing to worry about! I used to worry about getting kicked out of Algebra Honors when I was in it in seventh grade. She puts things we never learned in her tests, and she just expects us to know it.

Well of course her classes aren't easy, it's an advanced algebra class for some 7th graders and mostly 8th graders. I wouldn't say she explains things clearly, but she does help students with trouble.

I think she is way too easy.She should at least give proofs for every single formula. The way she taught us the inscribed-angle was "Isn't it weird that inscribed angles are 1/2 the central angle."

Mrs. Adams is 1 of the best, if not the best, math teacher at FA. Just study ask questions if you get confused. Expect lower grades in honors. Do extra credit if it is offered as that is a rare.

Had her for honors and while I got two Cs (lol) I stopped caring by the third semester and I got a B. Which is why you never ever want to study (excessively). I got into Geo and her movie was on math.
