Pros: Very knowledgeable, good professor. Lectures are boring, but worth going to.
Cons: This isn't about the professor, but the TA was HORRIBLE. The weekly recitation was worthless. I wouldn't have gone if it weren't for the weekly quizzes.

The pop quizes are pop extra credit quizes which really helps you grade. Also, the homework is online, but only graded for completion.

Her lectures are good to attend but it's straight out of the book so if you can learn that way, no need to attend. However, she gives pop quizzes but they only count for extra credit (good insurance in case you blow an exam or have to miss a homework). The homework is all online, probably like 1 every week or every other week. Pretty easy. Supposedly curved at the end.

Very good professor. She teaches with Enthusiasm and very knowledgeable. Though, the class that I am in has a recitation, so its hard to judge her thoroughly. Overall though, 4 stars for doing what a professor is suppose to do at a major university; communicate with students and keep interest during lectures. Easy A-B at 200 level.
