18. Other comments:
Very fair class!
Math is subject the a lot students struggle with, the "new way" of teaching 103 is great in the sense that students know what is expected of them upfront & allows them to move at their own pass. However, this also presents an issue, with work being imputed into computers doesn't allow for students to show an instructor their knowledge of the material (via working out problems on paper). That being said I think there needs to be way to be more flexible when it comes to the course "pass" grade requirement. specifically regarding the exams, as it stand now if a student passes everything but ONE exam (less than a score of 70%) the student is not able to pass the course with a C; I don't think that it is fair assessment of the students' knowledge.
She was very helpful and nice. I liked that she would do a lecture before an upcoming exam.
