Mr.Cowan is a super sweet person however as a teacher, his lessons are boring and repetitive. I could barely stay awake for his lessons and I had the misfortune of having him two years in a row. However, he rounds grades a lot and provides endless help for struggling students
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.
great teacher, very knowleggeable great teacher, very knowleggeable great teacher, very knowleggeable
I'm not a math person and I got an A both semesters in his honors precalc class. not only is he an amazing teacher who has great and helpful after school study sessions, he's an amazing person who has changed my life and because of him i have a new found appreciation for mathematics.
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.
He's great. Tells about his family and other hilarious stories. Really got to know him. Teaches really well. Amazing teacher
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
Hes patient and awesome. Talks slowly and monotone but his teaching is fantastic. You could ask the same question over and over and he wouldn't mind repeating the answer. I loved his stoires antics with Mrs Muller. Hilarious. Ask about the dead body he found in the river channel. Had him for PreCalc
definitely one of my favorite teachers...i couldnt ask for better.. he's so patient and will stop at nothing to make sure all of his students understand the math and are taken care of...he's a really laid back and amazing teacher.
Coach Cowan helped me more than most teachers. I hate math, because I dont understand it, he stayed after school EVERY day to help me. Totally awesome!!!
Mr. Cowan is by far the best teacher ever. He is the most patient person I know and is always willing to help anyone with anything. He's a true inspiration.
the only teacher that made me like math. he's very organized and makes his students organized too, helped a alot
Always offers help, really friendly and overall a good teacher.
Teacher ain't exciting or very funny, but he knows how to get the point in. Always helping people and explains his notes perfectly.
Great teacher, answers all of our questions well. No surprise tests.
