First off, I got accepted into a top-tier university, and will be majoring in mathematics. However, this teacher is clearly incomptetent. When I approached her on a problem, she stated, "I don't care. This isn't in the BC2 curriculum, I will show you later". She never showed me later. Furthermore, she is cranky in the afternoon and is concerned with the most minute details. She clearly does not care for critical thinking in math as all of her test problems are concerned with just calculations

I really enjoyed her class, she pointed out a lot of interesting points about our class topics. Although she did show a tiny bit of implied favoritism, I really respected her as a person and teacher, and is great if you go in with a postive attitude

Bad Teacher. Seriously, if you go and ask for help she will make you feel bad and discourage you. When you ask about a question that she does not know how to do, she will mutter something incomprehensible under her breath and skip over it. During class I also felt that she didn't teach much. If you are not doing great in her class, but have questions, go to other teachers for help.

Put too much emphasis on Mathematica and does not really provide solid content. The worksheets do not add much to the class. Despite having decent knowledge of the AP test, she has little beyond that.

She's nice if you are doing well in her class. If you are getting poor grades apparently she will just "give up" on you. :c

Simply put, Dover is a great teacher. Just ask her for help outside of class (I know that they say that about every teacher, but Dover especially), and you'll get the material.

Great for BC. Her quizzes are easier than those of the other classes, but we seem to learn more. Goes on biweekly tangents about the AP and math education and stuff, but that's all fine and dandy.
