Complete course evaluations for Math 8 Fall 2017 (1.0 is best score possible, 1st time for online evals, I didn't use powerpoint, so at least 1 student submitted incorrect eval).
Complete course evaluations for Math 108B (Advanced Linear Algebra II) Fall 2017 (1.0 is best score possible).
Complete course evaluations for Math 8 Spring 2017 (1.0 is best score possible).
20/90 course evaluations for Off-Sequence Calculus II Spring 2017 (1.0 is best score possible, document camera referred to was because the room had no blackboards or whiteboards).
Complete course evaluations for Math 8 Winter 2017 (1.0 is best score possible).
