MY LOVE! i miss her already, best teacher!tends to rush towards the end of the course, and spends time on small unimportant things. HOWEVER,the easiness of her tests and being that she's so approachable over compensates for all her flaws. She's understanding and will push off webworks and tests. RECOMMEND<3<3

She is a very fair teacher. She is also super nice to the point where you want to tell her that she can be meaner to students without feeling bad. Any math class can be passed if you ask the teacher for help on what you don't understand and there is no teacher more approachable to do so than she is.

She is probably the nicest person I've ever met. She's a good teacher, however she tends to stray off-topic quite a bit and can spend up to 20 min showing us some side topic or a question she found interesting instead of teaching what she said she had to finish teaching by the end of that class. This can get very annoying especially near the end of the semester nearing the exam. When she sticks to the topic she's teaching however she's an excellent teacher. Tests and final are pretty easy.

Ellen Cooper is a very sweet and knowledgeable old lady. However, if you're striving for a good R-score, say 35, don't take her. She gives extensions all the time, discards the lowest grade, and postpones the test twice just so the bad students have more time studying for it. Her tests are extremely easy (u have to be mentally challenged in order not to get 100%). I never did any of the non-graded homework and ended up with a perfect mark. Standard deviation is around 25% so it's bad for r-score

Amazing teacher. Super helpful and really cares about her students. Always available for help and always eilling to go over examples. She gives prsctice tests before every test that are very similar to her actual tests which are all very fair and eady. I study 5-6 hours before a test and my average is nearly 100. A teacher. Highly recommend taking her for linear algebra.

She's always smiling and happy person, which motivates you to listen. However,when she explains,of course, she explains, but it feels just like copying. When she rexplains, it's like listening but not understanding. She'll take some time to respond a mio, but in class she would. She's sometimes too permissive with troublemakers in class, so it's a bit distracting. She doesn't connect with people. But she's nice and organized just a bit distant and shy, so asking questions is hard. Recommended

She's undeniably nice. She's organized with her material prepared and structureds. She knows alot of stuff and will prove her theories. Her assignments are well announced and match her lectures(execpt for book's). The problem is when she explains, she suddenly left upside down and erases stuff. She doesn't seem to have the appeal to the teacher, she sounds hesitant and boring at times(especially at 3h). She'll try to help you and rarely cancels stuff. Reasonable good person, medium teacher.

She teaches really well and tries at all costs so that everyone in the class is satisfied. All those that don't like her most likely want the answers and marks for free without trying and get upset when she doesn't give them because she is a truly fair teacher. GREATLY reccomend her.

I hated math before I took one of her classes. I liked so much, I'm almost sorry I don't have to take any more math classes.

However, she has infinite patience with those who would rather have a tooth pulled than take a math class! She can make it all seem like fun.
