Ms. Maturana is a very sweet lady who made math interesting. I had a nice experience with her. Just make sure you ask her questions if anything seems unclear. Work hard and be watchful of your format, and you'll be good!

She never makes mistakes mistakes when teaching, her English on word problems are fantastic, she never takes away marks when you deserve it, she is 1000% objective, taught us valuable life lessons, and that the area of a circle within a sphere is the volume.
She mixed in philosophy with our calc class that I will never forget. She taught us that life is never fair.

Why is she teaching Higher Level IB Math when she can barely grasp basic grade 9 concepts? Her teaching is unorganized where she requires students to ensure if her math is correct. Additionally, she makes numerous mistakes on test in which students are unfairly given marks. Did she even attend teacher's college? Her writing font and volume of voice when teaching doesn't make it so apparent. When she starts class off with a prayer, pray that Ladna will switch you to Badjari.

She is actually really unhelpful and if she doesn't like you, you're gonna have a harder time than the students she likes. You know you're a bad teacher when every single person in the class has a problem with their test and has to clarify with her and she still doesn't understand what the problem is. If you get her and want to know if it's worth having her, go to Eugene and switch to badjari.

she is a nice woman, but is very bias towards the people she likes and you will notice that when you receive tests back. She is not very good at explaining and thinks you should have alot of prior knowledge. She is not hard but occasionally pulls a tricky question on her tests and then says it was on the HW. She has also made many mistakes on the tests ( making you waste 20 mins on a question you cant answer cause its not possible)

Her notes were the best. She condenses the HL math curriculum into very concise notes and adds a lot of extra information to make the concepts more clear. If that isn't enough, she takes important problems from both the IB textbook and outside sources so that you're exposed to all sorts of questions for the May exams. She is an extremely intelligent woman. Work hard in HL math and do ALL the homework because some test/exam questions were tough.

She's a really kind woman, always ready to help when you have questions. However, she may be unclear with her lessons and questions. If anything goes wrong, it is usually a communication mishap. I wouldn't say her tests are easy or hard, they're sort of in the middle. Most of the time, she would take material from the textbook and change the numbers on the test, so do your homework!

She appears to understand most of the material, but she has absolutely no idea of how to teach it to students. Nobody understands anything in this class.

TERRIBLE. She marks really hard and she always gives tests that are way too hard. She needs realize that she is not teaching the right way. She needs to look at the tests for the other classes before she gives us our tests to make sure the level is at least close...

She is a great techer but she isn't hard nor easy. The exam review is worth 10 out of 90. She collects reviews for tests which raises your mark b/c its 4marks, not bonus, on the test and you study.

I love her! She's so sweet, so spiritual, and so nice. She really wants the best for the students. She's not easy but she's not hard. Sometimes she's unclear, but that's mostly b/c of miscommunication
