In terms of experience, I had her for geometry. You're better off learning geometry yourself. For one, a majority of her lessons are doing homework, textbook work. Second, she's old school, dont expect any projects or any fun activities when learning geometry. Third, it's really easy to get bored and lost in thought in her class, expect to put in a mental effort in paying attention. Fourth, expect grades to be inputted in VERY LATE. All she does is write on the board and give homework, period.

Worst teacher i have had yet. she doesn't explain lessons all you do is copy down examples. She assigns so much homework and has the strictest policy about it. She makes smart remarks and doesn't work with students so they can learn. When I missed a day of school, I returned to find out we had a test which I had to take even though I was not taught the lesson the previous day. When I told her I didn't know how to solve the problems becuase I was absent she shrugged and laughed, bad teacher

Long homework assignments and due the next day, no exceptions. Her tests aren't incredibly hard. She's funny, but she seriously assigns too much work.

Ms. Daniel can be grumpy some days, but overall, she is nice and chill with students. Math is tough for me, but since she started emphasizing what would be on tests, things have been very clear. Work hard and you can do well. She's also willing to answer math questions. Silly questions, nope.

She is fun to talk to, but not exactly good at teaching. Can be sarcastic sometimes. Tests are usually on the same types of problems that we had in homework, not the simple examples she gives in lectures, so pay attention when people go do the questions on the board and review your homework before the test!

She gets ticked off easily and we always have unrelated discussions and side comments in class. Fussy and picky over homework. Copies the lecture right off the book.

Ms. Daniels is a dedicated teacher. However, her lessons are often short and difficult to follow with a lot of homework. Her tests are often beyond what she teaches in class.

doesn't really teach. lets student do the problems on the board instead of doing it themselves. does not appear to have a strong base in mathematics proficient enough to be a pre-calc teacher. most of the materials students need to read themselves. does not provide a very productive class experience. takes forever to grade tests.

I'll admit I almost hated coming to her class. But, I started to realize she does help us understand the homework by going over problems that we didn't get the night before. She has a bit of a temper when it comes to students who don't follow instructions. But, overall, a better math teacher than most.

She's a pretty good teacher. She gets you the info you need. She has a few unfair moments, but for the most part she's ok. And she knows her stuff like no other. And her class was pretty organized and easy if you do the homework regularly.

She's a good person in general but when she sees something that ticks her off, she'll be very sarcastic in a mean way to the person that did and she's totally justified in doing so. She's a really good teacher. she creates a thought provocative classroom that enables social networking and helping of others. The only thing i have against her is that some of her tests esp. for calc A is really hard. on the other hand, she totally prepares you for the ap test or for ap calc bc with king

Easy class, can teach well, and explains pretty well, but gives LOADS of homework, way more than any other regular geometry math teacher and each period is the same routine over and over again. You'll become tired of the repetition later on in the year.

She's a pretty good teacher in that she knows her stuff and can explain it well. Her tests for Calc AB aren't too bad. They're usually quite similar to problems off hw (but they are in the morning=/). She does (along w/ all the AB teachers) prepare you really well for the AB test. She doesn't really have favorites or anything, but she can be sarcastic at times.
