What do you like best about this course?:

very willing to help, always offered it and although i did not take the offer as much as i should have/wanted to i still appreciate her willingness to want to help us

She is a sweet and beautiful women. She explains the material very well.

The teacher was engaging with course topics and clearly enjoyed teaching the subject

there was no much to look forward to going into class

You're very enthusiastic about teaching and I appreciated your passion for it. I can never get myself interested in calculus but the degree of enthusiasm and passion you had was inspiring.


If you were teaching this course, what would you do differently?:

nothing really, except workshop grading is a tad harsh

I will change all the hours in the afternoon rather than in the morning.

Not do workshops. They have no effect on helping students learn the core material of the workshops

i would have offered a bit more help and tell us to review the topics for next week's workshops beforehand

Maybe have the first class to explain how we should write up the work shops. I know there is a sample write up, but I'm still confused of what to write, how to put it in a sentence, and all the things you point out for deduction. I know you got many office hours but my schedule didn't really allow me to use that resource and I kind of got the same points off repeatedly.

less hard

In what ways, if any, has this course or the instructor encouraged your intellectual growth and progress?:

her interest in the subject and willingness to help made me want to be more eager to learn, but unfortunately having lecture with Prof Noone but a damper on my whole outlook on calc which kind of made me dislike going to recitation too because I was always lost

She is very kind when students ask questions.

she was enthusiastic at math


practice problems

Other comments or suggestions::

very enthusiastic

Hope I can take her as TA again in the future.

Get rid of workshop questions. They are too difficult for this class and do not help learning growth

Corny math jokes were funny.
