Good professor. Me gusta. There is no complaints. She is willingly to help others.
Mrs. Wichman is a great teacher but the grading system for this class is obserd. The fact that we can only retake exams once a day is unreal.
Teacher was good, course moved to fast for student, expetually if students are expeted to make 70% or higher on everything... not fair.
Awesome teacher !
Ms.Wichman is Great teacher but the Math department and thier rules of the EXAMS and how we only get to retake it once per day is UNREAL. Ms.Wichman was very helpful when it came to assignments but i just do not understand why the EXAMS are the way they are. I know that it is made to help us review but it is such hassle for some students. PLEASE CHANGE THIS FOR FUTURE STUDENTS. THANK YOU. ALOHA. MALAMA PONO. CHEEEEHEEEEE. ALLRIGHHH. Jennie Thompson Please!!!
Andrea wichmann is an awesome professor but the way this course is set up makes for a very stressful summer session. If a student is taking a science course in addition to this math 103 course, the work load is close to unbearable.
This four week accelerated computer course seems to have been designed to set up students for failure. While the weekly assignments and exams in an accelerated environment are understandable, the fact that one must achieve a minimum for eight separate components or face complete failure of the course is completely unrealistic.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
she writes down on the bored what you need to know and study from the book to make it easier to keep up :}
Very knowledgeable teacher, available to students outside of class if help was needed.
She was new this year (to my knowledge). I like that she was very clear and made some confusing terminology and theorems easier. She is very understanding and takes the time to go over any homework you didn't understand. Shes very strait to the point and tells you what you need to know.
Andrea really knew her subject area and was willing to help in any way if we didn't understand how to do a problem.
She knows the material she is teaching.
Very helpful and understanding.
She is very lenient when necessary, and she is very intellegent in her approach.
she knows the material very well.
She explained everything very clearly.
She is younger than the average math teacher and can relate a little better than some other teachers I have had in the past.
She knows how to explain complicated equations plainly
She explains the material in a clear way that is easily understandable. She makes herself available to help her students succeed outside of class.
She new her material and made sure that students were prepared for her exams. She made herself available for the students who weren't really comprehending the materials. she gave students the opportunity to make up exams that were not particularly up to par. and she is a very caring and just overall an excellent instructor.
She is good at lecturing and students can take good notes from them.
I feel that she knew her subject matter well.
She is always willing to help students.
She was helpful to her students, always available for questions and extra help. She also responded to emails promptly.
Stays on the schedule almost always. Consistent.
The way she explains things simply and clearly.
EXPLAINING VERY VERY WELL
knows subject, cares about students, available for help
Kind, neat handwriting, and knowledgeable.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
needs to be more one on one with students in class.
Power Point presentations, please! Writing everything down on the board was a little redundant, as everything was in the book (definitions, etc). Maybe writing the unique sample problems out was fine, but writing everything on the board made already boring material a little more boring. Also, PPs save markers and time.
No changes at all. I like the way she organizes the class and puts everything together.
Slow down when doing lectures, especially when there is a lot of writing. Sometimes it's hard to keep up with the discussion when i'm still writing about the last example. Also, it helps to give practice problems in class so that we have a chance to do them ourselves, before trying the homework.
None
learn to use laulima
be more lively.
None
More class participation.
Get better markers.
None
None.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
yes she gave me chances to fix my work.
Available to students outside of class regarding concerns bout school, and during class, she ensured that the students knew the material before continuing.
She always explains anything you tell her you don't understand. She goes over any problems on the homework.
She would email out a study guide for each exam that we had. It really helped for those who didn't make it to class sometimes. It also helped me do better than I thought I would on my exam.
Andrea was fair, she also prepared study guides and was available by email.
Made sure that everyone got the material by letting the class know if they have any questions.
She made sure students understood the information by making it very clear and available, giving study guides, and holding review sessions.
Always being availble for questions and willing to help with problems.
she prefers our opinions and work with that other than imposing her own.
She encouraged students to come see her during her office hours if they needed any help.
No comment
If she see's that the class did not do good on an exam, she will provide extra credit.
She offered office hours before exams to help with any last minute confusion and responded promptly to questions.
Asked if we understood the problems and if we had any questions.
Asking often if we (students) got the part she just taught before going on to the next--giving us extra examples if needed without being hurry.
She offered extra help for those who needed it and even extra credit for those who had a bad day on their test
She informed us that she was available outside of class and willingly answered questions during class.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
yes she is a very good teacher with good teaching methods if you like to write down notes.
Yes, she is very knowledgeable, helpful, and ridiculously hot which made the class a lot less boring.
Yes!!! She's very nice and understanding and strait to the point.
I would definitely recommend Andrea Herndon to other students who are interested in taking her class because she is very organized.
I would. I know she is new, but she is very adaptable and relates well to students.
Yes because she is a good teacher.
I would recommend Andrea Herndon for her constant helping with students issues in math 100 and her laid back style in teaching.
yes
Yes, she makes math easy to understand.
Yes, she is aproachable and will help even after class if you have issues. She will also work around your schedule if you can not make it to class on a specific day.
no
yes. if they want an easy subject.
Yes. Great instructor with passion for teaching.
Yes, she teaches well and gives good examples to help students understand the subject fully.
No Comment
Yes. The help is there.
yes because she was helpful throughout the semester. She actually wants her students to succeed and learn.
Yes, because although the material is hard to understand she explains it in a way that makes sense.
Yes. simple explanations, and so easy to get the points.
Yes! I would.
Yes. She is a good teacher and does a everything a good teacher should
Yes. This was the most pleasant math class I've ever taken. Rather than making the class seem stressful, she somehow made it enjoyable and a relaxed. Her notes were very helpful.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Good Job!
I thought that this was a great class. Its hard to get 25 different people with different learning techniques, into a subject as difficult as math. Provided with a text, full summaries of each chapter, and then daily homework is probably the only way to get the most teaching effects on the overall class population.
Good teacher.
missing attachments, have to beg for my homework when I was absent, keep asking, no or slow answer, homework given to me after it was due.
No Comment
N/A
Chapter reviews (study guides) she made for each test were very helpful as well.
I appreciated her kindness also her promptness for returning work.

15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She always asks us if we have any questions and she looks at our homeworks everyday and gives us good feedbacks
