She's an alright teacher. Tests are fair with a couple of more challenging questions. The exams are a little easier than the tests. The only thing is that she is a very harsh marker. Takes 0.1 (sometimes even 0.5) marks off often for small things.
AWESOME. Best teacher I have ever had.
Listen, Coke is fine. She's not the best in the world but that's because she prepares you properly. If you get coke, and you have a solid knowledge in math you will succeed. If not, study. As it stands, Coke is the best option, so take it.
There was another student in my class with the same name as me, and Ms. Coke called that student by (our) first name, but used my full name to address me. She also, on several occasions, accidentally called me by the name of a student she taught many years ago who apparently looks like me. I don't think this woman knows who I am. To her, I am a variation on a more popular student by the same name, or a ghost of a student she once knew. Whatever, I did pretty well in her class.
She's a good teacher, teaches from the smartboard, kind of does like a powerpoint but she adds examples of the question for students to try out. Tests are usually okay and fair. Harsh marker takes off points for almost everything. Has no filter when she speaks, insults students without thinking about it twice. A bit of a drama queen. Overall,if you have no self pride, yeah you'll like her class.
Terrible teacher, she doesn't know how to grade tests. Odds are if you liked her you were probably a nerd or had little social life...
good teacher, but her tests are too easy and it does not prepare top students for math contests
No problems. Our whole class liked her (I think). Tught us a lot of useful stuff about money.
did really well on my AP Calculus exam thanks to Ms. Coke :) She is tough, but fair. She prepared us well, but you have to do your work.
Ms. Coke taught me AP Calculus this year. The whole class thought she was great. She taught us 4 courses between Sept and June. It was tough, but it was University Calculus. Ms. Coke was thorough, knowledgeable, and caring. AWESOME TEACHER,,,,,,she really prepared us well for next year at University.
BEST TEACHER I HAD IN MY 4 YEARS AT MERIVALE. FAIR, DISCIPLINED, RESPECTFUL. DIDN'T LET THE YAHOO'S GET OUT OF CONTROL. I HATE WHEN TEACHERS HAVE NO CONTROL OVER THEIR CLASSES. YET SHE IS VERY NICE.
Mrs. Coke is a great person and a great teacher! I'm currently in her G. 12 Advanced Functions class and I love it. Her lessons are very organized and well-explained, and she really prepares you for University. In grade 10 and 11 my teachers used the level system tests which in my opinion are garbage. I'm thankful that I have Mrs. Coke now because she is helping me overcome my time management issues when it comes to writing tests; so next year at university I don't get a beat down. A Teacher!
She explains her stuff, but she doesn't really teach. Most of the time she just puts up an overhead or just gives you a review and you study. She also doesn't really halp you with questions.
I'm not sure about all of you, but I actually like her way of teaching and I found it really easy to follow along with the lesson.. :)
shes a nice enough person however she really needs to learn to teach. a person cannot learn from reading an over head.
I can't learn from her it's always overheads and explains it over once and expects you to understand. Almost all the students in her class hate her, she wont go one on one with you to help you she'll just repeat what she said before and expect you to understand it again. We have a second teacher in there learning with us for fun and she teaches us better!
I have friends who could teach math better then her. Honestly I am doing the 4U course with her and she doesnt teach math at all, most of the stuff she does VERY different from the way other teachers since grade 1 teach. She is the WORST math teacher I have ever had!
i have her in grade 9 and she always picks on me when she knows i dont know the answer (but dont worry i know the answers most of the time) and she is probably very suprised when i do get the right answer lol
Coke's actually really cool once you get to know her. One time she spent the whole class talking about her triathlon. All in all, she's an alright teacher.
Great teacher. at first i thought was in for tough time, but know it's fun, i learn, and i get away for calling a kid a monkey.
had her in grade 11 math last year. She seems extremely strict at first but then sometimes she will bring you ice cream and stuff. She helped me a lot.
Sounds like she's a bad gr.11 and 12 math teacher, but I was in her gifted gr.9 math class this year and she was awesome! Although she appears to be super strict, she really isn't once you get to know her. Also, with the gr.9 curriculum, she seemed to know what she was doing. You'll have to ask the question if you need help though, because she won't explain it if it's not necessary. She's a fair marker and her tests are challenging but not hard. I enjoyed having Ms.Coke as my teacher this year!
In university calc now, and had coke in gr. 11 and 12. Was certainly the best math teacher i had at merivale. Her class was always fun and while she seems strict at times she is really an awesome and very interesting person....Has great stories too.
One day while teaching a lesson she looked at her notes and said "I don't understand this...hold on a second." May I add that SHE wrote the notes? aarggh. She's a nice lady, I won't deny that, but she needs to have better communication with students, and learn how to teach.
I was in her gifted calc class and I switched into the regular calc class. The difference: we copied notes faster in the gifted class. She doesn't know anything about teaching a lesson, thank God I'm actually smart or else I'd have failed calculus in university. And, if you'd ACTUALLY ask her a QUESTION, she wouldn't know the answer, and you'd be in no better position.
I have nothing against Coke, though I must say I did better in university calculus than in her class. I'd take her again, though her extra units are useless and a waste of time.
im in university engineering calculus now. THank god i had miss coke. i enjoyed gr.12calculus soo much because of her. she always hits on the point. and iss such a sweet person
wow! does not kno how to teach. waste of taxpayers money. im in uni now and i have A.. no thanks to her i learnt more in summer school. doenst admid she knos nothing about calc!
She is the KINDEST teacher. She teaches well and hits right on the point. just watch out for her tests
She knows a lot and if you actually TRY to learn and ask QUESTIONS, she can teach you a lot. If you dont ask, she won't know you dont know, and continue on.
She can't teach, she doesn't teach and she ADMITS IT. she gets confused while explaining her lessons
Hey, I'm in University now, and I thank her for EVERY MOMENT in calculus, you'll thank her later when you find calculus easier than others in first year math.
Good notes, very organized, motors along in the course. An overall good teacher.
Nice person who can't teach. Oh and get your hand out of your pocket. )
she know's her stuff inside and out! one of the BEST teachers i have ever had!
She learns what bugs you then pokes at it... not cool
If she can't get out a library how can she teach math
