Although I have always loved mathematics, Mr. Cowan has been the first teacher to make it truly boring. Don't get me wrong though, he is still good at what he does.

Amazing teacher. Works around your schedule to get you help, comes in on Saturdays, collects homework end of the week, doesn't even question late work, rounds up grades several percent, great sense of humor, just overall best teacher

Although I only had Mr. Cowan for Algebra II/Trig prep for summer school, he was just as dedicated. Listens to his students, and is there to answer your questions. Incredibly tolerate person. I've never seen him mad!

I think that Mr. Cowan is an incredible man, and a great teacher. I had him for math my soph year and after i had an issue and bombed the final, he offered to let me retake it as he knew that i had studied and could do much better. He will put in as much as if not more effort than the student does.

Great teacher. He is super cool and he tells us his funny life stories sometimes. There is always enough time to do your homework in class and he is really laid back and helpful.

Mr. Cowan Comes in every Saturday to help students. He understands that there is more to school than just his class. He is the best all around teacher at Marina.

He's a good teacher, yet I prefer Mr. Boogar. Mr. Cowan lets you finish your homework and then do other class hw as well. It's really cool in this sense, but I seem to be doing worse in this class than Mr. Boogar's, where he focuses on his subject and makes it very interesting. Cowan's class is more of a -take notes, - do hw, - test. Monotonous.

He's so cool, he rocks at dodgeball. Coolest math teacher at the school. Clearest notes I've ever seen, you can learn the whole year from just reading the board. Ask him about his chicken story.

although his notes and method of teaching are not the clearest, he is one of the few teachers that i feel really cares about how his student do. i have rated most teachers poorley but he is deff one of my favorite. he will stop and help you whenever you need it, which is important in a math class. all around great teacher and fun guy
