Ratings for Firestone, M K
Based on 26 ratings for this instructor.
Comment: Overall, she is a very boring lecturer. Nevertheless, this class has so many different guest lecturers, it doesn't matter too much. Assignments and tests are fair. The material is interesting so despite her bad lecturing, it was interesting. Professor Rhew was more engaging.

Comment: She is a horrible lecturer, but the material is not hard - she provides a study guide that is very helpful! Although she is dreadful at lecturing, the material is very interesting and makes it decently enjoyable.

Comment: She's a boring lecturer and talks in a monotone voice, but her exams are easy and straightforward. Problem sets are graded a little nitpicky - so make sure your responses are as detailed as possible. Also, if you want an A, make sure you know the details, and not just the basics, for the exams.

Comment: Professor Firestone is really nice. Her lectures are interesting but the way she engages her students are not very great. Her organization for lectures are somewhat according to the order of topics she wants to touch on. She does care about her students and if they are having trouble, she does adjust her way of teaching to meet the level of the students. Her exams aren't hard if you study the study guides that she gives (which are usually close to what the exam will be like). Its a curved class so do well ;)
