She's a great teacher. The material learned in class isn't very difficult, but the tests can be frustrating. The most frustrating part of the tests are the multiple choice questions since they can be anywhere from 4-5 points a piece. So you can really know all the material really well, but still get a few wrong and do badly. Make sure you get full credit on the worksheets and homework since they are really important as a buffer for your grade.

Frustrating. I got A's in all previous math classes at TJ, but got a C+ in her class. I got a 5 on the AP, but I think I would have regardless. She's also defensive when you ask her math questions ..

She is a very fair grader, whether you like it or not. She understand subject material well. I think you probably lose something in the class if you choose not to participate.

Didn't know anything about the last chapter of multivar or any of linear. Unless she liked you will not assign partial credit, because she doesn't know what she's doing. Good in BC, terrible otherwise

she knows absolutely nothing about Multivar or Linear. She never gives me partial credit on tests, even when my errors are addition related. All her tests and powerpoints come from the internet.

Good teacher. I have her for BC Calc. She actually grades the HW tough, but it's not too bad. There are lots of extra credit opportunities. Make sure to turn in HW early. She teaches well.

One of the best math teachers I've ever had in terms of content- she is very good at explaining concepts- but a VERY hard grader. I'll get Bs and Cs on tests of concepts that I would completely understand and then study for 2 hours before the test. The multiple choice questions are really killer. very hard to negotiate grades with. But if you are willing to get less worked up with the grades and instead focus on how well you understandthe math, you will realize how effective her methods are.

Either calculus is really interesting, or Gabriel just works magic on you. I finally like math again, thanks to her. She's wonderful at teaching and helping you with homework, although the tests are hard because she's a picky grader (but I suppose it's to prepare for the AP exam). Very approachable and teaches at a nice pace.

If you're good at math, then you'll do fine. She is, however, very picky about keeping your work organized and proper. I guess that's because of the A.P., which by the way was insanely easy. I don't know if that was just because it's naturally easy, but she definitely did her part to prepare the students for the test.
