Professor Cochran is Amazing. I have a learning disability and she was more than understanding. She is by far the best Math teacher I have ever had and I absolutely HATE math. She is a very loving teacher and will fight for your success!

MATH 25 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Professor Cochran is AMAZING. She's super understanding. I love how she has her own methods of teaching trigonometry & polar coordinates etc. If you can understand her own method then you don't have to get stuck. If you listen and participate in class , do the practice packet, and assigned homework, you can easily get an A or a B.

Math 113 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Teacher was always willing to help you understand the subject. Math is about life learning problems and memorizing formulas help you move forward onto other areas of life. She also taught life lessons. Who moved my cheese was a book she recommend that you read.

Marth 25 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

Taking Professor Cochran's precalculus and trigonometry was pretty easy and interesting. Yes, there will be a lot of tough stuff, but if you take her class its going to be easier because she'll teach you it differently than other professors. Take all her notes, and do all the practice packet then you should get an A. Best math professor at SJCC.

Professor Cochran is amazing. If you are struggling in math, please take her class. The way she teaches trigonometry will make it so much easier and realistic. She is very helpful, if you need help, just ask. She doesn't like it when students cheat. BTW please do the practice packets. They are a life saver and super useful!

super easy class and teacher. easy to approach, curves exams, allows calculators and has tutorials in class, allows an index card during exams. lecture is easy to follow. Lots of homework, but it only adds more points if you stay on top of it and it's an easy A.

Math 65 Stats Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

If you don't like doing homework, don't take her. But other than that, super easy class and teacher. She shows you how to do everything on the calculator, she's easy to approach if you have questions, she curves exams, she allows an index card during exams. Her lecture is easy to follow and her homework adds additional easy points to your grade

Ms Cochran is the consummate professor able to handle mathematics questions both simple and advanced. If there was a better mathematics professor, I was not able to find one in the SF Bay Area

Impressed. Ms. Cochran sets it up so if you try, it is impossible to fail. Online homework grades itself so you can retry each problem and has read it, watch it and practice it options for each problem. Also in-class tutour is a great amenity. If you need an extension, she does her best to accomodate. I will be taking all math classes with her.
