4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
I thought that the fact that majority of the problems that we had to work out were word problems, which helped use a lot of critically thinking. We were able to apply the content to real life situations rather than just getting numbers, variables, and formulas to work with.
group work and instructor was very helpful to achieve greatness.
The thing I found most helpful in the class was the teacher taking the time to help us not memorize but to understand what we were learning.
This course made you actually think of what you where doing and not just about getting a correct answer.
I really liked how she encourages group work. It really does help a lot!
My math lab, was helpful.
What I find most valuable and helpful about the course is that I felt this was a valuable course and allowed me to get a good grasp of how logic and critical thinking can be applied in accounting, someday. The course was well taught and organized. Lectures notes are extremely are detailed and help you to comprehend the problem. The mymathlab homework and worksheets also provided additional information that helped me to comprehend the problem.
Being able to think a new way.
It was challenging and the group work was really helpful.
It gave me a different idea of what math is and what it could be.
What I find useful in her class is when she finds other ways to explain the section content, good illustrations
This class involves more real life skills, unlike high school math classes where other students and I would say "why do we need this?"
Applying real life scenarios to our math problems. I think this makes math more realistic as in we might actually have some kind of interaction where we would really need mathematics to solve it. I also LOVE the process of understanding each formula, I feel like this makes it much easier to learn and once we understand it we can apply it.
More interesting than any other math I've done. There might actually be a time in real life when I use the skills I learned in the class.
Since I struggled all the way through, and that has nothing to do with the teaching (the teacher was great), the course has taught me more about learning from mistakes.
I loved the subjects we covered in this course, they have reinforced my appreciation for math.
The course thought me strongly on how to be more reasonable and think more logically in my daily basis. I became more aware with better decision making, understanding, and analyzing important situations that pertains to my daily life
I found everything covered in the course helpful and a little valuable.

17. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
What I found most helpful was that she was very thorough with what she taught. She would stay on the topic of discussion until everyone understood. She also would not get sidetracked. She stuck with the topic on hand. I especially like how she had us work in groups to discuss the topics among ourselves. Working in groups allowed us to get one-on-one help when the teacher could not make it to us while I was also able to become friends with other students.
she was very determined to help students to learn.
I found that Ming Jing Chi was always willing to help us understand what we were doing in class and outside of class.
I love that coco is there to help you fully understand the material instead of just giving it to us.
She's always there to help inside and outside of class. She is very nice and friendly too.
She made sure we always understood the work before moving on.
I really learned a lot from Ms. Ming Jing Chi. She is one of the best in her field. He really helps a lot if you have a problem with an assignment or in trouble trying to finish it on time. Although I didn't ask that much for help. The assignments and activities (exercise) in class first may seem a little bit hard, but as time passes you get used to the subject and can finish them without a problem, maybe there are some problem that is hard to solve and understand. Also if you are stuck with some of the questions, there is always someone from the class to ask in class especially in group activity.
She explained things very well and everything was organized and clear. She wants to make sure everyone has a clear understanding of what were doing and is very helpful with having time to work with students.
The idea of giving a different teaching method from that of the textbook is a great resource to have. The students are given more than one way to learn the criteria.
She encourages students to work together outside of class and she tries to help students understand the work instead of just giving up the answer.
She always came to class looking happy and ready to teach. Always available to answer questions. Also always willing to help tutor.
Coco showed a lot of excitement in math and I think it made it more pleasing to learn. She also she tried to make sure no one was confused and if they were she offered outside help.
She is clear about concepts and repeats things a couple times and cares to help.
She's a great teacher-- has been since I've taken any math at KCC.
Mrs. Chi is one of the greatest teachers I've ever had. The learning experience I've had in this class is by far one of the best I've had in my life.
Explanations of word problems. Her reinforcement with working with groups. Class examples to explain her point of view. Her professionalism is undeniable.
I find her cheerfulness and her drive to be available to help very valuable and helpful.
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
n/a
I can't think of any suggestions to improve her teaching style and methods.
Your an awesome teacher,and I enjoy your teaching methods.
Just write a little bigger when writing on the board. And please don't use dry erase pens that are already losing ink, it's hard to see and understand during lectures.
It was great.
+ don't entirely change the way the book teach, because it may confuse the students + explain just a little bit more in details and organize + worksheets was a good notes and it is helpful, but try not use the worksheets all the time and try explain the problem while the students take notes so that the students will enhance their mind from writing while listening +over all Ms. Ming Jing Chi's way of teaching is good. It was well explain and undestable
Sometimes the examples used created more questions and answers. sometimes it felt like the topic could be expanded a little more.
Just slow down a little. Sometimes you can go really fast for the class and start to confuse us sometimes.
This course was awesome! Can't think of anything that needs improving.
There may have been one time when a test could have been returned sooner, but that might have been for a different class..
Don't have any-- she's a great teacher.
none. Keep the good work.
She could try to simplify some of her instructions a little more after explaining it her regular way.

4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
The topic learn us how to understand logic and to deepen our thinking base on our test result.
Learning and understanding the concept of probability.
It helped me in my most difficult subject, word problems! Now I feel confident
Worksheet were very helpful!!
nothing it was very hard
Presented math in a way I haven't seen before. Very literal and logical, easy to apply and usually easy to understand. Honestly, the instructor made the course. I only took this class because my math 103 teacher, though obviously brilliant, was impossible to learn much from.
I found that this course really helped me in my own personal life and situations that I run into.
The notes
This course was very challenging but I think that it will help me out in the future because I am now going into medical assisting and I need to learn about unit conversions.
This course explained to me a lot about logic even though I wasn't expecting it in the first place. This course is really interesting and I like the lessons a lot even though it was very difficult when I first saw it. I learned a lot about reasoning, probability, counting methods, and unit conversions. Probability, counting, and reasoning were my most valuable and helpful things that I had gained when I took the class because it made me feel like I can finally understand real life situations when using these examples that I learned in class and then applying it to real life situations when I get out of college.
helping other in need
everything in general
I thought everything i learned in Math 100 is very valuable. Logic, unit conversions, probability ect... I know i will be using what i learn in class in real life situations.

17. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
The Professor talks so logic and very easy to understand the topic although it is a tough and difficult topic. She's also very inspiring and very informative.
explains concepts throughly, and it is easy to understand.
She was available and willing to help students outside of class. The small group teaching was very helpful.
She explains the lecture thoroughly, and she gave examples so that her students can able to understand the lesson.
Coco really made math fun and truly cared for us and how we did. She was very lively, which helps a ton! She knew how to teach the subject so that we had to problem solve on our own instead of just teaching it straight. She's a wonderful teacher, Id love to have her more! So kind and respectful and caring and a solid teacher!
Study groups were very helpful!!
it makes you think a lot
Instructor has rock hard patience and nerves of steel. It is obvious that her ultimate goal is 100% understanding of the material and she will take the time to explain information to you in more than one way if needed. Very clear and reasonable with expectations. Encourages peer tutoring and communication early in semester so as the course goes on you have an endless support system for missed class notes, study partners, hw questions, etc. I wish she taught calculus track classes.
I've never had a teacher so willing to meet outside of class and form study groups to improve in my learning. She broke things down in class that was difficult to understand, and gave us multiple practice problems to work on to help us better in understanding.
When I need help, she always there After class to help me.
She was always helpful with us and helps us by arranging study groups that will help us improve and do better in her class and see where we need the help and what we can learn more about or understand.
She is very helpful in giving students advice. I really find the opportunities of getting help from her really useful in my academics in Math 100. Her lectures for each lesson and chapter that we had gone over in class is really thorough and precise and when we have questions we can ask in class or we can go outside of class and meet her in tutoring center to review of what we had learned and what we need support on to improve that one particular field of Math 100.
understanding students and helping with problems
made real life problems into math
She's a good teacher from the beginning. She explains very well.
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
less paper works, papers that is not needed to study on the test or quiz.
More study guides.
We could learn more content. The pace was a but slow.
None! Coco rocks!!!
More review time would be helpful.
slow down and teach us more throughly
Start teaching math 103 and pre-calc.
Create more in class study groups before tests to help us to interact and ask questions about problems we may have.
Let us use our notes a little more because it makes me have a harder Time and explain the lessons more clearly.
None shes a great person and she helps you whenever you need her help
none
needs to learn to explain things better

I would give Ms. Chi a 5 star on teaching Math 100 course.
She should get an award for her teaching excellence!
This class is very challenging, I was hoping we had more time to do more practice on each section!!
In my opinion she was far more concerned about any 'language barrier' than anyone else was. Made very effective use of TA's and frequently had our quizzes and tests graded and given back to us within the class period- which is great because it gives you the opportunity to ask questions and immediately correct thinking patterns before it's too late.
Just keep doing what you're doing! You're such an amazing teacher and It was a pleasure having you as an instructor :) !

I really happy to be in this class.

4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
This course is teaching math for elementary school and I learned about how to guide students math with fun and what is important, goal, and principle of math for teaching.
She made the class more fun and full of helpfull information, she made us look closely to the material from students prespective. she always guides us to do our best in class... i really love how she teaches this course... she is one of my best teachers in KCC.
I learned a lot of new things and she pushed us as students to ask questions and be proud in our work and to learn from our mistakes.
This course opened my eyes to see what you have to go through before becoming a teacher. What i found most valuable was the way we had to twist our minds around to think like a child in order to develop guided questions for our lesson.
This course taught me a lot about learning hoe to break down and help kids understand different math subjects. I worked with kids for about 2 years and I help them with their homework and with this course, it taught me how to break down some math problems to the point where it's comfortable to the students learning abilities.
Always made sure the students understood the information provided, if they didn't she always spent time to help them understand until they reached full understanding.

Ming Jing Chi is an outstanding teacher! You can see how passionate she is about what she does through her teaching. She puts her whole heart into her teaching and never fails to make sure EVERY person understands what's going on in class. She is always there to help us when we're struggling, she doesnt give us straight answers for our problems, she makes us work for our answer so we understand how we got to it. I look forward to having her next semester :)
I really liked how Coco used different examples and ways in math to help everyone understand that there are more ways to do a problem and which ever way works for you, use it. She gives her students a chance to try and be teachers and she helps them along the way. She doesn't see any students problem that they did wrong as a bad thing. She looks at it as this is interesting how his or her mind works and see's it as being creative.
She never turns down a student, always seeking ways for them to grow.
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
I like her ways of teaching style a lot. Nothing problem with me.
She is perfect...keep up the good work... love her class

I enjoyed her class very much even though I didn't like to make presentations. I appreciate that she taught us math with many different methods and that was all we need to be an elementary teacher. I am glad that she is very friendly to everyone!!
I really liked how Coco was very helpful and understandable, I felt really comfortable tellinh her some of my personal problems. She never judged me in any way she helped me and let me meet up with her personally. Throughout this semester I missed too much clases which I know affects my grade but when I tell Coco what is happening she helps and informs me about what I missed.
Best teacher to be teaching math 111 and math 112.

4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
Ming Chi was amazing! We had a pretty good amount of work but she made it very much enjoyable. I was able to learn the required materials and not fall behind.
Learning new ways of approaching problems and solving them with different forms of logic.
Went over problems we didn't get right away!
Most valuable, having a tutor available from the class itself.
I found that you were very concerned with our understanding of each topic and made sure that we were all on the same page.
learning more logic
Coco is a very encouraging woman. She is really good at talking a topic all the way through so you full grasp the understanding.
I really liked the idea of being able to view my grade on mymathlab. This class is a very challenging class and not intended for the week minded.
The examples she gave in class really helped me understand the material we were studying more than the textbook at times.
It really taught how to understand math and not just how to do it. Allowed me to look at math in a better perspective.
How she would go out of her way to help us understand.
I dont know.
Study help
Helped me to analyze situations in life

17. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
She always had the class do group work which really helped everyone to understand the material better.
She is willing to sit down with students and clarify specific problems.
Questions are always welcomed.
I think that you know exactly what you are talking about and do a great job at explaining and giving examples of each math topic.
she tried her best to help you on her free time
Coco teaches at a really good pace, and she makes sure you understand a topic before moving on, because with this class everything builds onto each other.
Her attitude was always positive and showed a great admiration for the material she wanted us to learn.
She really knew how to teach effectively. She was very open to questions and knew when the class didn't understand something. A very understanding and nice teacher, one of the best.
How she understood what she was teaching.
Even though there was a language barrier because she is not from here, she still taught and explained her lesson very well and in a variety of was in case one didnt quite make sense to some of us
Very helpful, makes time for students outside class
She is the best math teacher. She explain the subject in a way that is easy to understand.
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
She's perfect!
Making sure the language of logic problems makes sense before using them as examples would be helpful.
start class on time and end on time. show how to do the problems before asking students to do it to not form bad habbits
Needs to understand certain concepts before teaching to class!
Examples needs to be re-read and understood by herself, prior presentation to the class. Directions on assignments need to be written clear, stating what needs to be done.
I don't think that there is anything to change about your teaching style. This is the only math class that I have taken where I actually understand most of the material. I appreciate the way you use specific examples to resemble a certain topic in ways that we can relate.
she needs to reply to emails, needs talk slower and move slower in explaining.
I really liked the board work- do more please!
things that could improve class, tutoring, class tutor needs to be more specific. I went to tutoring before test and I could get clear answers to my questions with that said I didn't do good on those specific questions. I feel that if were asking for help and putting in our time on specific questions and problems we should receive proper answers and help.
maybe slow down a little bit.

While I enjoyed this course and found it challenging, I do think that a course more geared toward unit conversions and other health care related math would be more helpful for the nursing program specifically.
Thank you for being awesome!
Timing! Class starts at a specific time, if the teacher comes in 5-10mins late, that should not require the students to stay 5-10mins late. If we leave when class is done, as scheduled, we should not be responsible for any assignments given in class, after the scheduled time!
Coming into this class, I remember on the first day we introduced ourselves. I blatantly said that I did not like math. You changed my mind- Thank you for a great semester, I never would have thought that i could like math.
AWESOME CLASS! I never enjoyed math before this. It really pushed me to do better. :) Thanks Coco! You truly are gifted at teaching!
it was a very challenging class but coco and kieth were there to help in the library when I needed extra assistance. Very well done class, I learned a ton of really abstract types of math I never even knew were considered math.
I feel that the materials we get in class and what we study are good. When we receive our test they try to trick you in the questions they ask, to test your knowledge so it kind of throws you off track and you get very confused.I don't agree on tricking a question is a good way to test a person. Because we study our worksheets and also do our homework with no issues. But when we get a test its told different.
It was honestly the best math class I've ever taken.

math 100 was a difficult math course to take. it made me think very hard about the questions and how I should answer it. But it made math more clearly to me.
Tutoring
It made me think outside of the box and think differently than other traditional classes.
I find it helful that the lesson help me think more logically mostly when it comes to numbers.
All was most valuable and helpful about the course.
She always helped us on every question that we asked. She also reviewed most of the materials so that we all could understand each section more.
I found that the difficulty of the material encouraged me to work and improve my ability in mathematics.
That there are many different types of math besides just the basics.
The course brought out a different side of math, such as "if..then" statement. It was challenging, but for the most part, I understood most of the work.
She knew what she was talking about and understood problems we came up with.
Learning real life cases where we would need to use these math situations.
Coco explains things very well.
This course helped me to be more confident in what i do.
This course is more on critical thinking which is good because we learned to analyzed every problem before solving it.

coco was a great teach she helped out on problems and also outside of class she would give you time to catch up or study more.
Patience
A lot of support from the instructor and I like her teaching style because she took on different approaches of teaching. She always asked if we had any questions.
She was very knowledgeable in math and is the perfect course for her to teach.
She was able to me with my math problems when i needed help.
She would always remind us that there was tutoring if we ever needed help. There were many ways that she could help us, whether it was over the online homework or through the tutoring times. She also explained most things very clearly.
Instructor Ming Jing Chi was always pleasant and precise during class. She had the ability to create an atmosphere that was rewarding to be a part of.
She has the answers to every question thats asked, and if someone still doesnt understand whats going on, she breaks it down further and further. If they still dont understand, she explains it from a different way or she tries to explain it in the perspective that we see.
She was able to think of other methods of learning the work when we couldn't understand it and she made sure that we could understand it well before testing us. She actually cared on attendance and each of our comprehension skills on math.
She offered help whenever she could, she responded to emails quickly and answered questions during class. She also didn't move on until everyone understood the topic.
Able to meet up if had any questions.
She knows her stuff! Doesn't move on until everyone understands.
i like the way she is so open and willing to help all of us. and she always took the time to help me out of class when i needed help
She clearly explained our topic, and she is shelping us if we are having some difficulty understanding the concept.
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
I really don't think coco needs any improvement on her style of teaching she did very good this semester and I'm glad I had her for math 100
go slower
None
Ming Jing Chi has nothing to improve because she teaches her class perfectly as it is.
Having the answers for all the handouts so we can check to see if it's correct.
N/A
I think Instructor Ming Jing Chi will continue to deliver excellent quality lessons.
Coco doesn't need improvement, but I don't understand when we will use most of these math techniques.
Some of her lectures were made to be too complex than it should be. I could understand most of it, but for some of the other students, they had a hard time comprehending some of the lessons.
None
Have more one on one with student rather than group work because everyone is at different levels therefore working one on one with that student will better them.
More group work!
i like the way she teaches so much!
Keep doing a goid job..

her stle of teaching is very different from other math teachers. I never learned more or understood more than what CoCo taught. Her clear passion for her job is inspiring. She shows that she cares that we learn what she teaching
it helped me with my major in college in thats carpentry.
What I found most helpful that it refreshed my memory of the math that I took in high school, and it helped me to refresh since I haven't done math ever since I finished high school.

It was a different way of think and learning math.
She really explain the concept and she find away to explain it very clearly.

i think shes really helpful she knows how to explain things clearly and shows you little faster tricks to do other type of problems
She is a very nice instructor who tried her best to help her students
teaches students
She help me understand math in a way I never learned before. In high school I had a hard time learning because I didnt understand it and I didnt want to be there. With CoCo she made me understand and really feel and use me intuition to understand the questions
When we dont understand the lesson, she make a way so that we get it bery clearly and easily.
Chi always made sure that we understood the topics before we moved on to the next topic. She was there for us when we needed extra help and she had great examples for us to go upon.
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
keep up the good work she is doing
slowing down for students who are much slower than others
na
i have no suggestions she teaches fine already
The improvement she can make is to allow her students more time for quizzes because the beginning part of the semester she did not give the students much time to work on the quizzes, which caused some to fail the quizzes that some felt overwhelm. Also, a little bit more time when answering a question but also needs to be more clear on what she is explaining because sometimes the student gets confused and get lost.
dont reapete stuff
Coco your the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I enjoyed the challenge on the projects that she had us do but I think it would be better if she explained it more clearly.

she is a great teacher
it was a very long and hard road to get it and I hope I made it to the next level of math
no
waist of time this survey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I really like her, she really make me realized that math is not that hard, as long i listened and allow my mind to think deep:)
I enjoyed how she made all of us go on the white board and practice problems, I feel that it really helped me because we had partners and our partners would also coach us. I thought that was really helpful and a great way for us to learn.

4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
I really liked how coco explains the material in a way that I can relate to very easily. Because of her I will succeed in my future math classes!
studyng groups tutoring every day do my homework
The most valuable and helpful part which making math funny to do rather trying understand some much different rules to solve or understand the problem.
I found that the way Coco teached us was the most valuable. I have never had a teacher who explained so well , and had so much passion for her students to learn .
HELPED ME UNDERSTAND MATH MORE CLEARLY
Her teaching techniques and how she broke everything down really helped me understand.
Coco was enthusiastic during every class we had this semester and her passion for teaching was very apparent. She was engaging and encouraging to every student. She was clear and exciting when teaching her material.
The tutoring and the one on one. Going to the board to do the work. Giving the answer with a good reason.
My thinking of Algebra and how I look at mathematics find my weakness and my strengths
Going over the basics was extremely valuable to me.
Coco helped me to see what I needed to do in order to get thru math. Her skills and understanding made me believe that I could get thru Math 21. In the beginning I almost gave up, but I didn't and Im grateful that I didn't!! Being repetitive in math was the key for me and she did this with us.

She is very friendly which makes it easy for me to feel comfortable to ask questions and learn a lot better. I really Loved how she makes you want to learn.
that she was able to explain any question that we have
Ming Jing Chi is a very energetic and well sociable teacher that can help students in any different age, gender, or even race group.
I found that she was honestly one of the best teachers I have ever had , she was always excited to teach us and made math fun!
HELPED MY UNDERSTAND MATH VERY PATIENT AND SUCH AN AWASOME MATH TEACHER THERE SHOULD BE MORE MATH TEACHERS LIKE HER.
Every day handouts made it easier to comprehend the lessons.
Her enthusiasm and clarity in teaching math.
the one on one. the tutoring. the after class and no matter what she was really helpful.
teaching methods exercises that cover all assignments and help figure where I need clarification
She is a wonderful teacher. She demanded a lot out of us, but the amount we learned this semester was amazing. It was very rewarding. She is the best teacher I have ever had.
Having study groups in math helped out a lot. In fact, Coco was the one who initiated it in the first place. If she hadn't I wouldn't be passing her class. She opened my eyes to many ways of getting thru struggles/challenges that i face today.
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
I don't think she needs improvement, just keep on teaching the way she teaches!
maybe the quiz she can give at the end of the class so we can a little extra time

Coco is one of the best math teachers I have ever had. I highly recommend taking her class if you want to really understand what it is you are learning!
coco is excellent instructor
hope for those who are going take this class to have fun.
none
Coco was an amazing teacher, an excellent example for the other math teachers to follow.
have more one on one with you and not only one hour it should be two hours at least and not only 2 days. don't be so quick to do a test give them time to do it no matter whether you have to teach another lecture.
We are lucky to have a university level teacher at our little community college. You should be good to her so she stays.
I really enjoyed myself in the this class.

Going up to the board and doing practice porblems.
The tutoring sessions that were setup for the class. It really helped give us more hands on practice with the work to better comprehend it.
Her study guides and her practice quizzes really helped a lot and made sure we were caught up with the course schedule.
This was such a challenging course for me, but the instructor was the most valuable and helpful to me. I couldn't have done it without her help and support.
I found that the study groups that were offered gave me the opportunity to meet with others to discuss the material and I was able to understand the lessons more. I also admired my professors passion for teaching the class. I felt glad to be there because she was. I also found the review packets helpful for studying for tests.
The homework system
I found that the way she organized her notes, provided study groups, and multiple ways was the most valuable and helpful part of the course entirely.
It really helped that there were so many quizzes and homework assignments. The pace of the class really forced me to put my head down and study the material. The program used for homework assignments was very easy to use and it really helped that it would actually show you how to solve the problems, which made it a lot easier to really learn.

17. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
She made me memorize a lot of theories.
She was willing to personally help out her students with and difficulties they were having in class. Near the end of the semester I was having difficulty with some material. She pointed towards some questions and such that could give me extra practice and explained the process with some functions.
The fact that she always asks if we have any questions and that she conducts study groups for us outside of class if we need extra help.
The instructor was so patient and understanding. She really made me feel like she wanted to see me succeed. Her examples were well thought out and she taught them clearly and with passion.
I found that she spent time outside of class to help us with our class work to make sure we understood the lessons. I also like that she was constantly encouraging us to ask questions so she could explain things we did not understand. She would also ask after she explained something if she answered our question. I always felt comfortable about asking questions.
really helpful and forgiving
Coco interacted with every student, making it comfortable for the students including myself to learn, and get work done.
She not only possess an extremely in-depth knowledge of the subject, but is also very skilled at teaching it. This is a rare combination. Usually teachers of mathematics that are skilled and knowledgeable in the subjects don't really understand how to be math teachers. Coco is able to break down concepts into the the most elegant and refined terms possible. When a student asks a question, she has an uncanny ability to see beyond the question, to the fundamental misunderstanding, and correct it there. Coco is also an artist when it comes to efficient white-board and marker use. She employs several techniques, including the practiced ability to write on the board with both hands. Coco was always there to help me after class. She would never hesitate to re-explain a concept to me, no matter how many times I would need it explained. She's a tough teacher, but it makes passing her tests and quizzes all the more rewarding. Because you know that you had to have a solid understanding of the material in order to have passed. It makes you feel like you really learned something.
Organized study groups. Offered help outside of class. Answered all questions.
Here knowledge about the topic and the way she presented the material.

18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
I prefer to do math homework the old fashion way with paper and pencil. Doing homework online inhibited me from really learning since there were only a handful of problems.
I could possibly say more hands on practice in class but we get a good amount of practice out of practice from the Mathlab questions and some hands on work in class. Besides that the class is pretty comprehensive and well paced.
Even if we say that we believe we got it, go ahead and test us to see if we really understand it.
None
I think this course needs to have one more day involved. Having the class three times a week instead of two would help a lot in going over all the material that is required for the course. I felt that I wasn't spending enough time in class as I should be.
A slower pace
There may have been a few things here and there that I thought could have been done differently, but they were such minor issues that I can't remember them now. Honestly, Coco is probably the most dedicated teacher that I've ever had. She strives to be a master of her craft to the extent that if there are things to improve, she has probably already thought of them.
More study group sessions.
Provide more opportunities to practice in class.

Beautiful person, inside and out!
This was a great class and encouraged me to ask questions as well as communicate with my classmates. I felt that I learned a lot and have been able to understand many math concepts that I had originally struggled with for years.
Coco should receive an excellence in teaching award if she hasn't already. She's one of the best instructors that I've ever had. Kauai Community College is truly fortunate to have her. It saddens me to know that after this semester, I won't have her for any further math courses like Calculus I and II.

4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
Ms. Chi made learning math easy!
I found that the mostly helpful thing in this course was the fact that we didn't use calculators, it helped us remember how to do the math mentally and we didn't need a calculator. Some people are so dependent upon calculators that they can't even do the most simple problem without a calculator.
It helped me alot by refreshing my memory of math.. and thought me new things too.
This basic math class and Ms. Chi's way of teaching has helped me in understanding the concept of numbers and realizing how much I missed math.
group work and group studies
Mrs. Chi was more than willing to help me when I couldn't attend class and made herself available to me during her down time.
turthfully, I found nothing in her class valuable or helpful because shes not so organized in her work of teaching. She jumps from chapter assignments after another and that is not so helpful. each chapters should go like example: chapter 1- section 1.1,1.2, 1.3, etc., Not 1.1, 1.5, 1.7, etc. 3.5, 3.7, 4.6, and so on....
The interest that ms. has for her student to learn the Math concept
It was a great refresher! Coming into 21 I thought that I had failed miserably and was being placed in this "low course" for nothing. I couldn't believe how much I had forgotten! Had I been put into a higher math course...I don't think I would be having the same results as I do now. Coco breaks down the material in a way that is so easily remembered, and she goes step by step. It's really a great course!!
she is encouraging and has allowed me to look at math in a different way.
Informationn giving has a clear understand to what we my need to know for the future.
i loved the way Ms. Chi thought us. when we didn't understand she would always make do things in a way we would learn new things. it helped me a lot.
Very lesson we cover was helpful to me especially when I am majoring in culinary.
Ms. Chi really has a way of wanting all her students to understand and is very supportive. Also she really tries to teach so your comfortable with what your learning if not she is sure to help.
i find most valuable in this course was having her to explain every section real good
that the teacher didnt give up on us always and always wanted us to keep working on the chapt. until we got the problems right she didnt move on untill most or all of the students got the work.... shes a very good teacher to have... If i had her as my math teacher i would take her class again..
This course has helped me refresh with the basic math skills from high school. I believe the skills that I have regained from this course will be valuable in math 26.
Most valuable and helpful about the course was mostly everything, I haven't learned some of these forms of math style and enjoy the learning opportunities to gain more knowledge in math.
it's just plain and simple way easier then high school, and the hawks has the practice session which REALLY helps.
i think being able to do practice problems on HAWKES really helped me refresh my mind on the lessons we learned during class.
it made me work harder and made me believe that i can pass math

17. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
She was always very helpful. She made math easy and fun. I enjoyed going to class each day. She always had a positive vibe and u could tell that she loved math, love teaching, and cared for her students!
I found the tutoring she gave to all her students and to me very helpful.
She is an easy instructor to have.
When going to Ms. Chi with a concern I felt she really took my questions and opinions to heart. Her artistic side with her drawing out problems so I could understand them clearer was very helpful.
She's great at what she does.
Not that helpful, she taught those who already knew algebra, compare to the ones who didn't. she jumps assignments after another, not so well roganized, gives you 5 minutes quizes and expects you to pop numbers out of your butt. No concideration for her students who really needed the help...
Her personality add a lot of values to the course.
She was constantly encouraging us to get extra help. She set up study groups (even asking us what times fit around our schedules), told us about the tutors, and was more then willing to help us when she was in her office (even when she had other things to do, she would stop in the middle of it to help you) She has tons of patience and will do anything to help you understand. Before exams she will give a review packet to refresh everything covered on the chapter that the exam will be on. Very encouraging! I went through high school confused with math. Now for the first time in my life I can almost confidently say I understand math (at least this level). I owe a lot of gratitude to Ms.Chi.
she is their for any questions also she is an inspiration. I would recommend her to fellow students.
She urges students to complete and understand. She illistrates when not understood. She makes sure class is all on the same page in understand lessons. And she will give bonus to help students to earn more points.
she would always teach in ways we'd understand.
She was very into her teaching I mean she does everything just to get her students understand the lessons. She's a great teacher, She makes class not boring. Theres always something interesting about the way she teaches.
Ithink that i found math can be so fun and as long as you know the basics you have a good shot aat the hard stuff. Also i really value what i have learned and ms chi she is a really great deticated teacher!
she is an amazing instructor, she taught me how to actually enjoy math:)
she made us come up to the board and do the work on the board and if we did the problem wrong she would show us what we did wrong and what is the right way of doing the problem until we get it...
The most helpful was Coco (our teacher) herself. She has been the best math teacher I've had. In middle school and in high school I had a hard time in math and I didn't enjoy it. I had no interest and my past teachers were boring. I just didn't get it and it made me frustrated so I gave up and did poorly on ALL test. At first, I was intimidated to go back to college because I needed to take a math class, but after having Coco as my teacher I couldn't believe I was actually enjoying math for the first time ever! As well as getting A's and B's on the exams! She explains everything so well and always stops to answer questions when someone gets lost in the middle of her lecture. She's always concerned with how everyone in the class is doing, making sure everyone is on the same page. She doesn't like leaving anyone behind and she really tries her best to do that. Coco is awesome!!
She's a very nice and direct teacher, she's great in commanding her classroom and is well spoken. She's alway's happy with a great big smile everyday. Most valuable and helpful about her is that she's very patient and will work with everyone that needs her assistance. She's an awesome teacher.
she goes through every thing nice and slow and keeps on it until the whole entire class gets the hang of it.
She is always there when you need. She always check on her students to make sure they are understanding the lessons in class. I find Ms. Chi very friendly and helpful. She makes me feel very confortable in class and most importantly, I can ask her for help whenever i'm confused. She clearly explains it to me, until I understand it.
that see knew what she was doing and always came prepared to class and never late.
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
Awesome teacher with a great attitude and way of teaching no changes needed!
Nothing, this class was great.
Nothing to change, she's doing a fantastic job
None. You're great Ms. Chi :)
1. Coco should go steps at a time in each assignments and not jump around. 2. She should spend time with the students who really needs the help. 3. She should be more available for individuals with real problems in class. 4. If shegives
Ms. Chi style had help me to understand and to solve problem in a more practical and consistency manner.
Honestly - this was her first semester teaching...and the class was perfect! Very well organized, extremely patient, positive, and always telling what had to be done ahead of time. The only thing I could probably say I didn't enjoy was Hawkes and the daily quizzes - however, that's unfair to say as both Hawkes and the daily quizzes help you understand the material better. Coco Chi is an AMAZING math instructor! I WOULD without a doubt recommend her to anyone!
No comments, she's GREAT!
Theres really nothing to improve. Just the way she speaks was challenging though, it kind of hard to understand her sometime.
Its a great thing to push your students for the best but sometime pushing to hard can be very unsuccessful .
she's perfect
shes a great teacher and wouldnt change anything about her teaching
She really does a great job. I was hoping she would be teaching our next math course which is math 26.
No suggestions for improving he course and/or Ming Jing Chi's teaching style and methods needed at this time.
Having more review assignments and having the class participate more often

24. Other comments:
Thank-you Mrs.Chi see you next year.
I will miss her next semester. Hopefully the following math class I take she'll be my instructor again.
I hope to take a future class with you Ms. Chi :) You're great.
The exams wasn't a fair test of our knowledge of the course material. Assignments were not returned promptly for us to review. one thing I know for sure, I won't take her again.
You are the best Ms.Coco! Thank you for all your help and giving it your all! Math teacher = A++
it is because of her I would continue to take math throughout my college term
Thank you Coco! I really appreciate you!
Mahalo Ms. Chi, you're and awesome and outstanding math teacher!
I feel more confident in myself in math and I can always go to Ms.Chi for help. I know she will always be there to help me. :) i really enjoyed this semester with Ms. Chi.
