4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
 You can use this info and use it in the real world. real life application of math we can use. This type of course was contextualized for people in real life solving real problems. I got a better understanding of statistics. It was certainly difficult but questions were always answered. I learned about using statcrunch and basic knowledge about statistic. The part that helped me the most was learning the concept of statistics because in another class that I was taking covered statistics. It incorporates like a "case study" types of questions that relates to nursing. This class wasn't your typical math. It's more of real-life, everyday situations, so that was definitely helpful. It was a very interesting course, and it made me think a lot. Also, I'm a Nursing major, and Jon applied medical situations into some class problems so I can see why this class would be beneficial for those pursuing a medical career. The instructor made learning easy and fun. Book with online was great too. It offered a lot of examples and extra help. Online or worksheet homework and reviews before each exam was really helpful to develop a better understanding Math has been a tough subject for me, always. I took college algebra my senior year of high school and noticed a major improvement. I became nervous for the next level in math at college. But taking Stats made me confident that I can take on all math courses! Using math to discover the relative truth through the measurement of uncertainty is amazing. A mathematical understanding of error to determine a more accurate truth was fascinating. "The Truth shall set you Free" said a wise person. Now, I can consider the science and art of statistics an enlightening path to truth and freedom from ignorance.

 Not to do things on stat crunch teach the hands on way For students that missed some of class- they need to come or fall behind. As long as your going to class everyday you will learn his teaching style and methods to calculate problems. Johns way of getting students come to class is have weekly quizzes which made more students attend class often. Honestly, I have no idea. ha ha. You did great jon. :) Alot of people kinda dropped off, so how to get everyone to stick around? Make it more exciting? I don't know, I love the course so I got alot out of it :) I think his teaching abilities are great and would be hard to critique to make it any better. Its all good. One suggestion that I have for improving the course is a little more time for review for exams. N/A No suggestions! Jon's teaching was fun and easy to understand. More time for discussion, review, questions and in-class practice and examples

 Great stats teacher. Keep it up john kalk Your teaching style is great. Your love of math really shows through during the course and teaching. I do see your frustration at times when students don't participate or get as excited but you still keep going knowing that what you are teaching will hit home with someone. I REALLY appreciate at from you jon. There is hope in math :) And my love for the subject has been affirmed through your course. Thank you my friend. -Kei The only thing that was something I could suggest fixing is the teaching assistance he gets. The one we had this term didn't seam to know much. And the help given tended to be wrong according to the work given. He is a good and helpful teacher I have no further comments. Jon is a great teacher! Although I struggled A LOT in math 100; this semester I thought i would be struggling again but it's the total opposite and i'm doing really really well in his class. I'm actually surprised that I'm getting an A in STATS! Great class! Learned a lot and am prepared to apply my new knowledge out in the real world! Love the class, but disappointed in the limited time period for a more complete study and discussion in class. More time was needed for practice and enjoyment of applying concepts.

17. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
 Jonathan Kalk has made time outside of class for us to ask questions and have more one on one time if the material was not clear to you during class. Easily approachable Jon really teaches to think for yourself and to really question "why?" instead of just accepting something as it is just because thats "what the teacher taught you". In other words, he encourages you to challenge the lessons you are being taught. Instead of just accepting 2+2=4, to actually understand why it is equal and where that comes from. I found how he was always available when we needed help was very helpful. Especially, when we needed clarification for a certain concept. He was very understanding and caring of the students. Everyone could tell he really wanted all of us to do well. He loves math Everything like the extra examples and resources he shown us. Very good at explaining why math is the way it is and how it came to be He have a thorough knowledge of the subject and that's the only reason/factor that keeps him from being a below average teacher. If he had any less of a knowledge he would've been a good teacher at best. That Jon really knew what he was teaching. I don't think there was ever a time where he was unsure during his lectures and even spends the time outside of class to help me and my classmates with problems we don't understand. Jon exaplins things really clear and knows how to teach it. Jon is awesome and im glad I had him teach me this semester. How quickly he was able to respond to our emails He is a awesome math teacher!!!! His homework helped a lot with the exams Very willing and able to help when needed. Cares about your understanding of the material. He is always willing to help, and makes sure you enderstand the general concept in order to apply it in different ways, basically reassuring that we have a thorough understanding of the concept.

 I wasn't able to come to class on time every day and it hurt me a little, but as soon as I came into to class Jonathon filled me in briefely on what the class went through with while I was gone. He was also open to helping teach things students couldn't understand and taught students why things were making sense. He is able to explain the concepts clearly and he answers questions in depth. Jonathan help everyone out a lot with understanding calculus. I really enjoyed the class because it felt like a progression into the material instead of just starting new materiel; learning it, then moving on. I learn a lot this semester and am motivated to take more calculus because i had such a great experience.
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
 The homework should be more important and more connected with the test. For me, in math I learn about 880 percent from the homework and 20 percent from class. There doesn't need to be much homework but just enough to learn and it has to connect with the tests clearly. no comment It was great and i do not have any idea on how it should be improved.

4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
 I liked discussing Calc topics in class and then completing the online homework. I thought it was a very effective way to learn the material. The most helpful part of this course was the visual explanations to the equations and theorems we learned. Jon is a great teacher. He is extremely knowledgeable about all kinds of mathematics, and their application in the sciences and the real world. He expects a lot out of his students. The handouts he gives that covers the subjects he goes over in class. I found that going relating calculus to real life situations made it interesting and easier to understand why things happen and how it relates back to calculus. I found the vigor of the course to be challenging and very helpful towards my future classes. John is helpful in every way. I learned a lot about calculus, which seems pretty obvious, but I found this course very insightful. We covered a lot of information, and we covered most of it in-depth. I will actually leave this course with extensive knowledge in math, and I thank you for that. the homework and tests what i really found most helpful of the course is how john is willing to meet with his students and help them on anything.

 There is nothing I would change. I have no suggestions. This course was great. Make study guides for all of the tests if possible. I would have liked if we had more application problems and less infinite series problems. I would go over some hard homework assignments in class. Some problems were troubling and I think it would have helped to go over some homework in class. Also, we should have had more quizes. This would make sure kids stay up-to-date on reading and studying and prevent procrastination. maybe have more quizes nothing

 I really enjoyed this class. I got out of it way more than what I expected and I feel much more confident in my math skills. Mr. Kalk was very respectful and showed utter most interest in the success of the students. No other comments. keep up the good work, you were a very good math teacher Keep it up, Jon. YouÃŠÂ»re a great teacher. The tests were very hard. I often felt extremely challenged by them. The examples before the test were usually not like the actual test questions. I wish that the test review was more accurate to what the test would actually be like. best math class i have ever had

4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
 The time taken to make sure that the material is understood and the teachers help is available whenever it is needed. I found everything valuable in this course. getting prepared for nursing What I find most valuable and helpful about the course is that it isn't strictly math-related; there are things that really get people to think about the situation rather than getting the answer to a question. The course itself, I believe, blends with science, math, and English in a way that all three subjects encourage students to think critically and evaluate the problem rather than tackling the problem right away. Talking to people from higher math classes, I realized that this course blends with the other classes, which adds to a more enriching learning experience. Jonathan Kalk helped me to believe in myself that I can learn math. He made the material easy to follow, and focused on what was important. He allowed me to strive to continue to do my best, and he had faith that I would. Math is difficult for me to learn, but with mymathlab, the problems were very clear. It is a great homework website.

17. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
 He makes himself available to help out students and always take the time to explain the material in a variety of ways. That he is open and willing to help anybody in and out of class. Jonathan Kalk is also very understanding and makes math fun. the most valuable about him is that he is concern about his students What I find most valuable and helpful about Jonathan Kalk is that he is always encouraging his students to work through the problems in a logical way. He has also stated that while finding the correct answer is nice, it isn't the most important thing when given a question. The way to get the answer is what matters. In high school, I've been taught that I needed to get the right answer and that's it. In Kalk's class, it seems that the right answer isn't the main thing to focus on, which does impact my way of thinking but it has impacted me in a good way. I appreciate Kalk's enthusiasm in teaching his students as well. He explains math problems in different ways, relating them to different situations. It really helps me to understand.
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
 The speed of the class was fast and the homework was a heavy load. none I suggest that Jonathan Kalk should keep up with students participating in groups because it strengthens the bond of the students and the students are learning from the material presented in class. I really don't have any criticisms on Kalk's teaching style and methods because his class has taught me some things that I didn't learn in high school. Maintaining what he is currently doing will definitely help the students who will be taking this course in the future. None

 In improving the course, if a student were to take two math classes in one semester (the previous being Math 75, which took half of the semester), I would suggest that the Math 115 class to be more packed with information. The class was a bit behind on schedule (but not by much), so Jonathan had to remove some information he really wanted to teach the students. N/A He is such a great teacher! He did an amazing job at teaching everything we needed in such a compact amount of time! no suggestions I think the only thing I can say was definitely include the project next time as a grade and not extra credit. If it's one thing about projects, it gives us a chance to really show you how much we really understand the concepts and are able to do them in our own experiment. The project you have is a really good one, it covers the entire statistic standards and also makes a good review for a test. More hands on and a little bit more broken down on subjects Spend more time in each chapter. Provide the statistics project for the final instead of an extra credit assignment and have us start it at the beginning of the semester. I really wanted to do the assignment but I didn't want to stress over it if it was optional. Also, a little less lecturing and more time to solve problems and check for understanding with the students. Longer class periods, i felt like every class was a rush, and noticed that near the end of every class we always had to squeeze in what we needed to learn for that day; i feel that about a 2hour 30 min - 3 hour class would be more effective. None Have a better flow of the course material. If there is something that needs to be taught for the homework or a test and it is not taught then it is hard to do good on the task that we have not learned yet. He needs to consider the students who are more visual learners.

 Jonathan Kalk's class really helped me to understand and finally enjoy math! overall Mr. Kalk is a good math teacher. Made good connections on how nursing and math are related and also how being good at math can make me a good nurse in the future. None I had a good time in this class and think the teacher executed the course well.

There is not a thing that should be improved on Kalk's teaching even though it was his first semester on teaching, but it was really interesting how things came to be of what I have learned from Kalk. I thin to improve the course and Mr. Kalk is, more group discussions and homework examples. And on Pearson there is this think to help us with the homework "view an example" and the way he shows us to do it in class and the way they show us on Pearson is really different. none none. Nothing comes to mind. N/A Help explain star crunch a little better and allow to use stat crunch skills table during tests because some are hard to remember. Nothing. Provide more materials for students to understand the lessons. More days in class instruction More lively/interactive lectures

 Great class & great teacher! Thank you mr. Kalk for the fun semester! Happy Holidays! Kalk is awesome of what he teaches of MATH that it's well prepared and knowledgeable to understand as time went by. Keep up the great teaching of your own style of teaching to make a better understand even if things were rocky at first, but it's always up to me to know and what to do if there were more things could make things way better to my best of knowledge with the course. Thank you Kalk for all of what you have done! All in all, I am thoroughly pleased with this course. I learned a great deal and was challenged all the way through. Favorite class this semester. Thanks! Great and fun teacher! Thanks Mr Kalk! This was a great class!

 Do more step by step examples on the board. Take it a little slower in class, and if using technology, teach how to use it instead of just assigning homeowrk and then putting it on the exam, if it was never taught how to use it in class. Maybe go over worksheets more. Completely go over them. get rid of the online homework. everyone hated it. either make your own through laulima or use another program. nothing he did great! No suggestions NONE.Course was structured well, homework assignments were aligned well with lecture.One cannot tell that this is Jon's first time teaching stats. Maybe teach a little slower Perhaps interpret more "on-hands" for the students to do, considering that at times, the lecture wasn't as interesting nor was it fun to pay attention to. One suggestion could be to set more time in class to go over questions people missed on the homework. The course textbook was a little difficult to follow because it didn't always explain things enough. Little more oral clarification...can sometimes be confusing. the homework, the tests, and the class work should be more linked together. I felt like they all werent connecting and I never really knew what to expect even though i did fairly well through out the semester. more problems in class and more stat crunch work would have been more helpful.

 He is a very kind teacher, always willing to help and work with you, definitely encourages you not to give up and tells you what you need to catch up and is always willing to help. Statistics must be a hard class to teach, but Mr. Kalk made it fun! No other comments Mr. Kalk made the class very enjoyable and I feel like if anyone else were to teach the information I wouldn't understand it very well. Longer tests would be nice in order to buffer grades. He is an awesome professor. If I had to take other math courses he would be my first choice in math professor. I wish he taught more subjects besides math so that I could have him as a teacher through out my time here at KCC. Thank you Mr. Kalk! Kiersten THANK YOU!

 I learned many brand new concepts how this course taught me to be a critical thinker, and helped me understand math more than I already knew. Being a small, yet fun class! Especially the sin waves when playing a musical instrument. The excitement of learning Trig for the first time. Inspiration to study engineering. Good teacher who knows his subject real well. The amazing teacher the proofs we did in class
9. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
 I found very helpful that my instructor would make sure each student understood the lesson before moving on to the next. Also, I found the quizzes after the lessons very helpful, it showed each of us that we knew the lesson and we all fully understand. The worksheets that was given in class and online homework. Questions were always encouraged, Kalk always met in the tutoring center after class to help students. Learning new material that was foreign to me and being able to understand it. How much everything in this world is related and how inspiring math can be

 If we ever needed to ask him questions about any of the homework or lessons, he was always reachable. He also makes sure each of his students knows the lesson well before moving on to the next, if one of his students doesn't understand he will go-over the lesson again so that we will understand it more. He's always willing to help outside of class! He is a kind, smart instructor who is never condescending towards students. You can tell that he wants his students to succeed, and he prepares his students for classes in the future. If you ask/give a "dumb" question/answer he won't embarrass you but rather finds a way to relate that to the subject (although sometimes it's not at all). He doesn't just state that he is available for help outside of class so he can claim that he's good teacher, but time to meet students at a convenient time. He was always available to answer questions and tutoring His personality and availability also his knowledge about other subjects related to math and how things were connected he is willing to help in an out of class

4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
 Strangely, I found the Journals to be extremely helpful! I never thought that a journal would be of any use in a math class. However being as we studied probability as well as reasoning is was nice to just be able to vent or get excited about specific problems or sections I also really enjoyed the use of online tutorials suggested by Jon. These really opened my eyes to math in a completely different perspective. Great class I always felt challenged but never overwhelmed. It was well organized. learning about critical thinking and probabability i found that Jonathan is a most helpful guy. It provided me with a good understanding of deep knowledge behind mathematics in general. The most valuable things that I've learned through this course, is that it made think very hard and critical to understand each assignment. But I have progressed very well and that I pretty much hated word problems, but as time went on, it kind of came to a point that I have learn a lot from this and that now I can say I'm loving math. It challenged me. Learned something new everyday The materials we used were relevant in daily life and not merely abstract ideas. I founded that Math 100 was most valuable and helpful because it introduced me to a different way of thinking and using math in my everyday life. Jonathan Kalk doesn't just teach us the material in our textbooks, he implores us to make personal connections with what we're learning and encourages us to find ways to apply it to the world around us. Jonathan teaches that math is so much more than computing numbers aimlessly, rather- math is an important and invaluable application for life. The basic concepts that we go over before getting to the more complicated stuff. Logic I liked that Math 100 provided a different source of learning about Math. It opened my mind to become even more knowledgable of the way life works in terms of Mathematics. Although it is a difficult course and takes a lot more than just numbers and letters, it helped me to think harder and appreciate math in its most raw form. Amount of helping teachers in the class.

 Maybe break down the problems more step by step and try to teach the problem in a way all the students can learn it easy. I know this may be weird coming from an adult at my age, but my learning style was not like the young babies in our class that are fresh out of high school -- I needed you to slow down alittle bit. To be more clear in explaining. Instead of saying what not to do, say what to do. Sometimes have a difficult time understanding the concept or lessons being thought. Once was very frustrated could could not understand what the assignment is about. Everything looks good, and everything in place about it. I just wished that the school would give him more time in our Math 100 classes. One hour is not good enough to learn everything in time. nothing! I don't think that there is anything that needs to improve as of right now. But what ever Kalk is doing, it's very excellent and on point to my understanding that I've learned a lot from him. Go over worksheets that are given throughout the course. It would better help us understand what we are doing. Or if anything provide an answer key. None Jonathan mentioned in class that this semester was the first time he was trying the journal application concept, and I think that was a great idea. Keep that concept!!! Weekly journals really helped to emphasize, as well as broaden our understanding of the material we were learning in class. N/A One suggestion if possible, would be to extend the time of the classes. sometimes, fifty minutes isn't always enough time to understand the work material. Everything is great. No need for changes.

 Great class. Dr. Kalk is the man Thank you Mr. Kalk for always wanting to help me and of course that tutoring session we did once helped if I got a good grade on my test! I just wished our class was a little bit longer that one hour. Other than that, his class looking solid. none It was very well to have meet Kalk, and that I've learned so much that I'm so thankful that he was part of my learning ability to get this concepts of word problems for me to have made it through his course. Excellent work and keep on trucking with your ability to teaching us students. Thanks! I had a great time in this math class and I hope many more students get to enjoy his teaching as well. Being that math is my hardest subject, I enjoyed this Math class it was a very interesting class. It helped me to build my confident in the subject, and build my learning and studying habits. Don't ever fire Jon! Lol. He's a great teacher.

7. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
 Learning different math techiques I learned a lot of new things in this course and Mr. Kalk was very eager and willing to help us learn and he made it enjoyable to learn the material. I have learned how to apply my math skills to my daily life. The homeworks . The concepts were interesting and applied to real world issues when he broke down information and explained in further detail How math really connects to daily living. It tought me more in details about how math worked The logic of this class was quite new to me. This class inspired me to continue pursuing this subject. The online math lab, it was helpful in the time of practice, although the lab and Mr. kalk teaching were very diffrent, Mr kalk teaching was easier but it al together became quiet confusing. The passion Mr. Kalk displayed in regards to mathematics and the different topics we discussed, esp. probability. His passion spilled over onto me, and I found myself getting stoked when solving problems. Lots of applicable material learned this semester that I will def. apply in my life. at the beginning it was going okay until later he went super fast and quized us on the materials that we just learned in a short period of time. I enjoyed looking at how we approach numbers and math compared to other and older cultures. It helped me open my eyes to concepts that I took for granted. I have new mathematical tools for critical thinking and counting and figuring out probabilities. What helped me through this course was the online homework. I like how if I'm stuck on a problem it shows me how to get the answer step by step. The teacher is so funny and makes math more interesting than other teachers. N/A Most helpful was probably group class work, it helped me see different approaches to assignments. Most valuable was the innovative learning style of the professor.

23. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
 He knew whst he was talking about I felt that he really knew what he was doing, and he has a passion for teaching that is motivating to want to learn from him. Anytime I needed assistance with a problem he was always quick to respond via e-mail or in person. He's a super math genuis! He's not easily stumped. He is easy to talk to and very friendly he gives each of his students 1 on 1 time He is very passionate about math. He has a funny dry sense of humor that make students feel comfortable. He always makes time to help students and ask us to justify our answers to make sure we understand them. He was paitent and very calm while teaching with me and other classmates Mr. Kalk has a wide knowledge-base that makes him the go-to guy for math questions. He knew that the value of this class and how important it is for us students and he was helpful with the making up and catching up alone with the math lab for us as students whom of that were sick or family members that were sick and were very understanding so that we were able to fulfill the course. His quirky sense of humor and his contagious passion and love with math. Also his patience when dealing with students like me, who struggle with math and logic. He also encouraged office hours and spent time with me one on one helping me grasp concepts I was struggling with. GREAT teacher. he would be available anytime to ask any questions! He has a deep knowledge and love for math that is charming and personable. Even though Mr. Kalk likes to kill trees. I find it helpful that he gave out handouts throughout the semester. It helped me to stay organized and I could always refer back to my handout notes. He was available outside of class and even had a class tutor who was also available outside and during class time. N/A Very interesting person and smart, whose honest concern for students to improve shows in his work.
24. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
 Be nicer when people ask you for help don't just ignore them I can't think of anything to improve in this course! Maybe spend a little more time on chapters 10 and 11. Also have the final on only the last chapters learned from mid-term to the end. I think he needs to improve his teaching style. He is super smart when it comes to Math so he would explain things more complicated then they needed to be. He needs to start off with a simple explanation and slowly build up to the bigger picture. I found it at times easier to read the explanations on the homework because I was not able to get a grasp on what he was trying to explain. It would be useful if after he passed out a worksheet, he would also pass out a answer sheet so that I know I'm doing the problem in the correct way. This would help prepare better for the tests. have out of class tutor sessions as groups. (like how loni does) I think everything was great. More extra credit would have been better. nothing, he did perfect None. His class were not all to me seemed that hard but for myself whom were bad at english reading and understanding through out my teens, I believe students would succeed in that math department way better if, and which this course to me seems to be an essientrial; so I think considering a math lab class is a do to go for it, cause most stdent can't make it for tutoring and signing up for a class with lab and no interuption of other class mix up would do just fine. Keep doing what your doing!! if he could give out extra credit,no quizes, more review sheets to practice on, give out review sheets one week prior to the tests, and a couple of days to review before finals. Teach us less and give us more time to work with the concepts that you do teach us. Jonathan is a fun and humble and genuinely interesting teacher. I think he should give out review sheets at least a week before the exam. To have a more set syllabus for test dates and to give study guides a week before the tests. N/A

 Great class. Thank you! I think he's an amazing, nice, smart guy but I don't think he's good at teaching the material, or at least that to someone like me who is a slow learner when it comes to Math. Aside from Mr. Kalk, the program math lab was very helpful and one of the best programs I worked on. He is a great teacher Great and enjoyable class that I'm going to miss! THANKS for hiring such a kick butt teacher!! overall he's a helpful teacher,he's always available, but I felt like we had to write about math rather than actually doing math. If he could teach in a more simpler way just like our homework online. He sometimes don't make sense when he's lecturing, but when it comes to the homework it makes much more sense. He teaches very fast and that's what discourages me. Thank you Jonathan! You really made this class enjoyable. Your love for people and teaching shows through. In the beginning of the semester, I dreaded this class. Now I'm happy to say I learned a lot and this was the greatest math class I ever had. Never knew counting numbers would be fun. I really liked the open seating and especially their arrangement in the class. It made me feel like a part of the class I and enjoyed having other older students who stimulated similar questions in my class.

8. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
 Clarity of purpose and consistency in approaching the subject material. The group discussions were the most helpful. To take what we were learning and collaborate with others really helped me to see if I was understanding the content or not; it also helped me to see the same content from a different view, which is so critical in teaching. Also, the type of program we were using, the on-line whiteboard, is a really neat tool that's fun to use! I like having meetings and discussing the course material. Mr. Kalk made things seem easier to understand when I could not understand the text. I really learned a lot about thinking outside of the box. Learning how to teach math in a way that i would have never imagined was very helpful. I will definitely use what I have learned from this class and use the techniques to teach math. The in-class activities and lectures.

 Always available for help and questions... Jonathan's passion for mathematics really shows through his teaching and therefore makes learning fun and easy in his class. He did an excellent job at explaining just about EVERYTHING. It really helped to know that if we had a question, he wouldn't mind taking the time to elaborate. Also his mastery of the online program was really helpful during class time; time wasn't wasted at all. He was always well prepared. He is a great teacher and is very knowledgeable. Professor Kalk is very knowledgeable. He knows a great deal about all of the things that he teaches. He always encouraged us to ask questions to make sure we understood the information. The quick and thorough responses to any questions.
22. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
 Different text book or additional reference illustrating what an elementary school teacher or child may actually be looking at in the type of math we are covering. Less responsibility on us to prove concepts and more instruction as to the important elements or truths we need to grasp. Some exercises regarding proofs forces us to think outside the box but as an introductory course, more general instruction would create less frustration on the part of the students. none, I think the students need to apply themselves in order to be successful. There is nothing wrong with his style and method of teaching. I think it is up to the student to understand the material. I liked the class the way that it was taught. More frequent homework assignments.

 One of the best teachers I've ever had. Excellent communicator, very kind and very helpful. Course work frustrating but I think I learned a lot in terms of not taking anything for granted and sympathizing with a child who feels completely lost when facing a new way of thinking or new material... My experience in this class was excellent, and I will hopefully be a better teacher because of it! If all my teachers were like Jonathan, I might've enjoyed math a little more than I did. Great course. Learned a lot and had a great time.

8. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
 At first, I thought that I wouldn't like the class. But I really enjoy being in an online classroom. It is nice to interact with the students and hear an instructors voice over the internet and still be able to be home with my children. The amount of communication between the instructor and the other students. Definately not the book. Tutor examples and examples in class were the only things that were helpful. Ryland was very good at understanding my confusion and explaining it, though I have no Idea how he got his explaintion from the book. The book is awful! No examples just confusing words and then questions, it could have been in another language to be easier. There are lots of programs to translate other languages not many for english. This course really helped me to see many different ways math can be interpreted; English is actually a larger part of math than I thought, and the way in which things are stated make a HUGE difference in what might be communicated. Through working with others, it helped me to view the same math problem from many different angles and understand where misunderstandings and misinterpretations might occur. I discovered some new ways to help with explaining new/difficult concepts. The think that I found most valuable and helpful about the course is the working together on problems and the continual feed back to provide the opportunity to improve.

21. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
 He is always open for discussion and conducts class very well. I think the quickness and thoroughness of responses to any questions was very helpful, along with patience when explaining concepts. When he would draw examples. Talking about them... if you don't understand to begin with changing order of words doesn't help. I use to think Math was easy to do, not here. The worst part was the book, class would probably have been better if there was a different book, this one is not good. Our instructor was very patient with the entire class and thorough in his explanations. If he noticed a few struggling, he made sure that everyone understood the topic before moving on and gave examples in class to help with any problems that any of us might have had. I felt that he was able to identify the strengths/weaknesses of our class and did a great job at pairing/grouping us together in class in order to optimize our learning both in and out of class, and not only from him but from each other. He is very knowledgeable of this topic and does an excellent job at breaking down terminology to the nitty-gritty. The thing taht is most valuable and helpful about the instructor is that he is willing to spend the extra time to further explain information that may not be clearly understood.
22. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
 none. I wish that there were stricter rules applied to assignment due dates and class start time. I felt that many students took advantage of the relaxed structure and would come to class late and would not follow through with their part of group assignments. CHANGE BOOK!! More examples for us that learn differently. The first 1/2 of the semester was soooooooo confusing! I cannot say that I understand what we learned already. Lots of words, not enough examples. The time period is a struggle. A class that was a little later in the evening would be even better. Other than that I am enjoying the class. The online, interactive classroom setting is awesome! Being able to discuss problems with others, work in small groups on our own "whiteboards" and being able to see what others are doing at the same time, I think is great. If only all math classes actually had this same type of learning environment...because math should be interactive and fun! I would suggest some improvement with forums, not all the students are active enough in them. I'm not sure if that can be changed however since it depends more on the students.
