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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

While her class is not super hard or majorly loaded with work, she tends to arrive late and reenters after breaks late as well. She doesn't explain steps very well and unless you ask her how you won't know. If math is not your strong suit be prepared to either take a different prof. or have a tutor!!!

She is a great teacher, but if you take her classes, expect to work hard! There is a lot of homework, but I am grateful for what I've learned and know the study habits I've acquired will be extremely helpful as I finish school. She really wants her students to succeed and will help you if you ask!

I took statistic intersession. The class was pretty easy a lot of As. She is not very good at explaining the material concept; she can be rude at time. She was late almost every day. She can picky at time. Overall take her if you want an A but you gotta teacher yourself if you want to learn.

If you are not prepared to study, the combination class of trig and precalc is not for you. There is A LOT the teacher has to go over and there are a lot of quizzes. However she explains the lessons pretty well and wants to make sure you understand. She gives a review very similar to the test, and always curves the grades low. She's Very nice too!

I took a condensed version of Math 13 during summer. She has very strict policies for her courses and she's not afraid to get snappy with students. With that she really cares and wants all her students to pass. She goes out of her way to make sure they'll pass. She's very helpful all you have to do is ask. I'd take a math course from her again.

she seems hard at first, all she cares about is you trying on your hmwrk, study for tests, she gives you plenty of opportunities to do well. She can be very understanding about absences when important. very anti electronics. so if you cant put down the phone done take her. I think shes an awesome teacher!

Everyone says that this clad is hard etc. But believe me I am the worst person in math and its the hardest class I have ever took and recieved an A suprisingly.As long as you study your butt of and learn the problems am sure you'll pass the class. I have a 6month old baby and did it so am sure everyone else can.
