  • Class rating 5/5
    Never have to go to class and you can easily get an A. If you do go to class you get a lot of extra credit. By far the funniest and easiest class I've ever taken. She give ex. credit out the wazoo, and most of the ex. credit is surveys. Homework can get tricky, but the TA office hours are really helpful, and you can take the homework as many times over as you want until it is due. Take the practice exams!!! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    Doing the workbook, homework and massive amounts of extra credit are sure to earn you an A in this class. If you need a math credit and you suck at math, take stats with Professor Fireman- you'll be glad you did. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    Fireman was amazing!!! Probably my favorite math teacher I've ever had! Fireman's funny, smart, and a very good teacher. She looks like a hot college student from the back, but her face definitely gives her age away (warning to all smokers). ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    She is just a great teacher. If you cant get a C in this class... then you HONESTLY do not belong at this university and you should go back to Jr. High. My test average is 97%. AMAZING class. ...Continue reading

    One of the best teachers that I've had at U of I. Love her. Unless you are an idiot, you can get a supereasy A. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    One of the easiest classes I've taken so far! Her lectures are pretty boring, but she puts the notes up online. And I would take the class with a friend. It made life much easier when I could study for the exams with a group. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    Fireman is kind of a crazy hippy, but you can't help but love her. She goes over the same thing for a whole hour, just doing example after example after example. Going to the class is pointless. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    Such an easy class, all you have to do is go to class, pay attention, fill out the workbook (copy her notes) and youll have an A. Homework was annoying, but if you do the practice exam there is no way you cannot get an A on the tests. Such an amazing teacher. She really cares about the success of her students, and is always more than willing to help. TAKE HER CLASS! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    Super easy class. I don't like math... but Fireman makes Statistics tolerable (and easy)! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    Fireman was GREAT!! I've never been that good at math, but I've gotten A's and an A+ on all of my exams. She teaches everything in a way that you can easily comprehend and uses real-life examples. I never liked math, but this class is pretty interesting. If you need a stats class for your major, take this section! DONT BUY THE TEXTBOOK. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    Excellent prof. She wrote the book which is a spiral bound print-off that sells for like $18, so you save money. She is the best professor you'll ever have at UIUC. ! You have to take STAT 100 with her it's a must!! I am by no means a math person but because of Fireman, I can honestly say that I enjoyed Statistics. It's definitely easy and I would recommend attending every lecture to fully understand the material. It's worth going anyways because she has hilarious stories. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    She really simplifies the material. She is too funny, but at the same time gives great examples so you understand everthing. Her lecture notes are all printed up in a notebook, so there is no rushing to take down notes. She is GREAT! The lectures are online. The class isn't incredibly easy(I would know, I'm asian, I went to the tests totally blind, not a good idea)...you actually have to do the homework and study. Study a day or two ahead of time and you'll do fine. I got an A. Easy ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    this was a great class. She was really clear and trust me it's not hard to get an A whatsoever! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    She was very effective at teaching and using real-life examples to foster understanding. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    she's tries very hard to help her students understand the material. She looks great for her age and she can teach. Best of all, there's no textbook and only a lecture note packet. It's not a super easy class, you still have to do the work. You CAN get a B in this class if you slack off and don't keep up with the lectures and homework. Take advantage of extra credit surveys. I don't even go to class b/c she posts lecture notes online which are clear and easy to learn from. Going to class isn't bad either, b/c she has a great personality and has an extremely good body for a lady in her 50s. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    Overall Fireman is a good prof. She gives lots of extra credit opportunities, and though she goes off topic a lot and you can barely read her writing, you can get through her class pretty easily with a little effort. Fireman is a little quirky and might be too slow for faster paced learners, but all the same the class is relatively easy and practical as well. Definitely recommend for those needing a QR class or a GPA booster. If you can't get an A in this class, you shouldn't be going to UofI. I'd say she's somewhat attractive too...keep in mind though, if you were to look up old cougar in the dictionary, you'd see her picture (ie, attractive, but old...and I mean old) ...Continue reading

    Very easy, very nice. She truly cares about how students perform in her class. I think that it is a testament to her teaching style that so many students think her class is easy.

  • Class rating 5/5
    I love this woman!! But in a good way. For someone like myself who doesn't care about stats, she made the class really interesting because she discussed other subjects while explaining the material. Now I teach a college level course and I strive to be like her. ...Continue reading

    you have to try really REALLY hard to not get an A in her class. Makes things VERY clear, and lectures are always entertaining. She's hilarious. And always willing to help you, or direct you to a place where you can get help. Easy, but study for tests. And do all the extra credit, I would've gotten an A+ if I had! ...Continue reading

    I love math, so naturally this class was a good fit. she's hilarious and seems to be really passionate about stats. she gives bonus points out like no other. homework is always relevant to the material learned in class and the exams aren't difficult either. I went to class the first day and never showed up again. Follow online by doing the Homework/EC and Fill out the Notes. Tests are straight from the study guides and practice tests in the notes packet so if you can do those, hello A+! ...Continue reading

    You learn so much and don't even realize it. sometimes she's a bit ditsy and she gets destracted easily. but overall she's a really caring and honest teacher. she doesn't want to fail anyone if she can help at all. but besides that, the class is pretty easy and I hate math Professor Fireman took the class to a completely different level though. She is an incredible teacher that explains things clearly so that everyone can understand and do well. She genuinely cares about her students, makes lectures fun, and has an unbelievable life story. Take her class! ...Continue reading

    Fireman is great! Notes are posted online every Saturday. Test comes straight from the lecture notes (the little book she sells). Easy A. Awsome teacher!
