Down to earth and willing to help you whenever. It was his first year teaching cal A so his test were a little tough and long at first but he graded them fairly and scaled them. You have to work like in any Calc class but HW counts for a lot and he will help you to understand if you go see him. …more Test-prep does not indicate what will be on the test. less

Gives you a lot of problems to practice but grades critically only on a few and the homework grade is a big portion of your grade. His lectures are very confusing and he is under the impression that everyone has taken calculus.

Very unorganized. Takes a long time to return graded material. Expects students to have prior calculus experience. Does not post grades online, and claims to scale tests, but doesn't tell how he is going to.

Stay away from his class! He is so unorganized. Takes months to grade tests and quizzes. Do not take this course unless you have to!!

To start off, Cowan is usually under the impression that the majority of the class, if not everyone, has taken Calculus before. His lectures are often times confusing, and very unclear at times. I would not recommend this professor to anyone.

Ehhh, he wasn't the greatest teacher. He knows the material, he just does not know how to teach it very well. Very bad about giving back graded tests/quizzes. My first test grade was a B, then C, then F, and finally an F. Everyone in class was doing terrible. So he scaled the grade after the final. …more After scaling, I passed with a B!! less

Completely disorganized. Teaches at .5 past light speed. Will spend forever on a concept and will then proceed to tell you to completely disregard it. Will also throw questions on test that weren't covered in the lectures. Quizzes are easy if you do the homework, and generally pulls test/quiz …more questions from homework. Avoid his class. Awful teacher. less

He is pretty easy to get an A from. I'm not sure why he has gotten such a bad rep. If you come to class, stay vocal, and make sure he knows who you are, then you are golden. He is very aware that he cannot teach. However, at his office in an actual one on one setting, he can.

Absolutely one of the worst professors I've had. He had no idea what he was talking about, asking us how to solve things he didn't know how to do, and impossible to learn from. I did NOT learn differential equations in this class. I instead learned it in An upper level physics class. I got an A in …more his class, but I wouldn't take it again. Worthless. less

Very good prof. See him after class. Very willing to work with students to help them understand the material. Tests weren't all that bad, and were scaled.
