Mrs. Given has good intentions but when you have a question she actually solves it for you instead of explaining you how to do it. Spent the whole year figuring out maths by myself.

Mrs Given struggled a bit with our class this year and it's obvious to me that a lot of the students didn't learn much from her teaching, including myself. She was hard to communicate with due to her saliva gland problem and her poor hearing. She did know her maths though and she really did try to help and offered all the support she could, it was just her teaching style didn't click with many people.

I passed Statistics so I must conclude that she is a good Teacher, and as long as you actually do the work, she'll treat you just fine.
What a feeling.

mrs given has always stunned me with quotes such as "stop fluffing around", "the factorrrzzzz are ..." and "there are lies, there are damn lies and than there are statistics!" possibly one quote that will always stick in my head, and that every1 that has ever had her can recyte! an interestin teacher, sometimes starting the class with a problem on the board "to warm up our brains". often picks on students for no apparent reason, e.g. tells someone to keep quiete just cos they are likely to have been talking
