Wendy was so nice. I took her course when I was very bad at math and she REALLY tried to help and did a great job. She was kind, patient, and smart. She even brought cookies in for our class once. Sweet lady and great teacher!

I give Wendy a 3.0. She's a good teacher and does what she can for the class. She isn't amazing, but she is a solid teacher. As for the class, I give it a 0.0. I regret taking this course, and I don't have trouble with math. The homework and quizes are perfectly fine, and will come to you if you go to class and review. But the tests are just stupid hard, which isn't her fault because they are written by the department and she doesn't know what's going to be on them. Whoever writes the tests is a knucklehead and thinks everyone's only focus is trig.........

Ok so Wendy is a nice lady and most people who take Math 114 tend not to be worried about the grade mostly because its any easy class if you are fine understanding math. But if someone is thinking about signing up for this class and you arent strong in math, dont take her whatever you do. I have taken the class twice and failed both time, she is nice but she doesnt know how to teach students that are not great with numbers. Please take stats or something else, its not her fault and she cares, but it just doesnt work.

Wendy is awesome! I wish there were more instructors like her. She really cares about students and wants them to do well. She is willing to answer questions and makes sure that we have a good understanding of the material before moving on. I actually enjoyed coming to her class, it was a pleasure; and I hate math! She speaks fluent English, which is so important in a math class. Anyway, I would suggest you take her class if you can. You can't go wrong with Wendy!!

She was an okay professor but the class exams were crazy. Our class averages were in the 30s or 50s for the last two tests. But she couldnt really help much since she doesnt seem them until test day. She does help with general questions quickly. For reference, I did relatively well with homework and quizzes at 82% and 80% on final but 66% on exams. I had accountants, lyman briggs, and math teacher majors helping me with homework and still doing poorly. Although they did curve quite a bit at the end, it was the most stressful class I've had while I worked so hard and it consumed monday through thursday. Unfortunately I think its less Wendy's fault, she was helpful.

Wendy was a good professor and did a fine job explaining what she covered in class...however, the exams were tough....I felt confident going into tests cause i knew how to do what she talked about in class but the exams were pretty unfair.

She is nice and given good handouts, but does not cover many examples. You have to do the book homework inorder to pass. If you can do all of the book ungraded homework, her exams are not bad, but the final exam was really really really hard.

Wendy....shes a nice lady, but really can't teach math. I did horrible in her classs.....shes really nice and tries to hard to get you to understand information, but the tests are department wide, so she really can't make her own tests and give examples and study sheets for tests. I would get out of math114 unless youre REALLY good at trig. I thought it would be easy and i did horrible.
