4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
This course helped me to be more confident in what i do.
Learning real life cases where we would need to use these math situations.
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.
It made me think outside of the box and think differently than other traditional classes.
Tutoring
That there are many different types of math besides just the basics.
Coco explains things very well.
This course is more on critical thinking which is good because we learned to analyzed every problem before solving it.
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.
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.
I found that the difficulty of the material encouraged me to work and improve my ability in mathematics.
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.

17. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
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
Able to meet up if 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.
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.
Patience
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 knows her stuff! Doesn't move on until everyone understands.
She clearly explained our topic, and she is shelping us if we are having some difficulty understanding the concept.
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.
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.
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.
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.
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
i like the way she teaches so much!
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.
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.
None
go slower
Coco doesn't need improvement, but I don't understand when we will use most of these math techniques.
More group work!
Keep doing a goid job..
N/A
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
I think Instructor Ming Jing Chi will continue to deliver excellent quality lessons.
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

She really explain the concept and she find away to explain it very clearly.
It was a different way of think and learning math.
She help me catch up and help push me to finish her class.
New ways to do math problems and how to manage my time better to study for exams & quizs
I found everything about this course very valuable. Although I just graduated high school this year, this class helped me refresh my memory about Math.
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
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.
math
it helped me with my major in college in thats carpentry.

17. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
When we dont understand the lesson, she make a way so that we get it bery clearly and easily.
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
she has help me understand math and has help me to remember math in different ways i still remember today.
very organized and ready for her students
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.
this was my most difficult class for me, my lowest grade this semester ( ahigh C)but my favorite class and teacher. Coco is a really good instructor. She makes sure she can do whatever to help you
She is a very nice instructor who tried her best to help her students
teaches students
i think shes really helpful she knows how to explain things clearly and shows you little faster tricks to do other type of problems
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
Coco your the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
keep up the good work she is doing
slowing down for students who are much slower than others
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.
na
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
i have no suggestions she teaches fine already

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:)
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
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.
waist of time this survey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
Going over the basics was extremely valuable to me.
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!
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 .
studyng groups tutoring every day do my homework
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.
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.
HELPED ME UNDERSTAND MATH MORE CLEARLY
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
Her teaching techniques and how she broke everything down really helped me understand.

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.
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.
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!
that she was able to explain any question that we have
Her enthusiasm and clarity in teaching math.
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.
HELPED MY UNDERSTAND MATH VERY PATIENT AND SUCH AN AWASOME MATH TEACHER THERE SHOULD BE MORE MATH TEACHERS LIKE HER.
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
Every day handouts made it easier to comprehend the lessons.
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
I cannot think of anything that needs to change.
I don't think she needs improvement, just keep on teaching the way she teaches!
no comments
maybe the quiz she can give at the end of the class so we can a little extra time
NONE she was perfect.
-the testes shouldn't be before lectures it should be after -do more board and group involvement

We are lucky to have a university level teacher at our little community college. You should be good to her so she stays.
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!
hope for those who are going take this class to have fun.
coco is excellent instructor
Coco was an amazing teacher, an excellent example for the other math teachers to follow.
I really enjoyed myself in the this class.
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.

4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
Study groups with her.
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.
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.
Going up to the board and doing practice porblems.
The homework system
Methods of teaching and tutoring.
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.
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.

Here knowledge about the topic and the way she presented the material.
Organized study groups. Offered help outside of class. Answered all questions.
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.
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.
She made me memorize a lot of theories.
really helpful and forgiving
Methods of teaching and tutoring.
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.
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.
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
More study group sessions.
Even if we say that we believe we got it, go ahead and test us to see if we really understand it.
None
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.
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.
Provide more opportunities to practice in class.
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.
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.

Beautiful person, inside and out!

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.
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.

4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
Getting back to basics, and the repetition.
it helped me refresh my memory from course i took in high school. but i still dont feel confident in some areas.
I Found really helpful the way Coco teaches the class she explains really good and goes step by step and she would show different ways to solve a problem the most valuable thing is that she makes the concept really clear and i feel really comfortable to ask questions to her, she always helps us.
The way she teaches and the examples and explaining on the board
:)
The way she teaches and the tutors.
it really upd my confidence in math and learimg convertions
Lets me.understand the formula problem before going to the next
I learned a lot of ideas and I was taught in a very simple way which helped me understand the math in a simple way and I feel confident in my math now. I really enjoyed her class, she really make it simple and explains everything very well. I wish I could have her in every math class. She not only explains problems in a simple way but she explains why it makes sense. I love her class.
Coco taught the practical application of the math taught.
this course helped me regain the knowledge i had lost since high school and coco really helped me. I feel way more confident about math than i did a few months ago.
The most valuable and helpful aspect of this course was the professor. She is able to break down and explain each and every step in a simplistic form. Throughout my 12 years of math, (elem. - high sch.) I have never experienced math before the way that I have this semester. It has truly changed my negative outlook on math and has encouraged me to want to learn and desire to do well and understand the concepts.
Well up until mid-terms i held an B average, Since mid-terms my grade has dropped to a D. I don't do well with a time limit on quiz, when I do the assignments with a little more time I get them right. She is an excellent instructor who is very motivating and encourages all of us as a group and individually. I would like to be able to have her move to the next level of instruction like math 26. She is a n asset the the University of Hawaii. ( I will ace the final exam because with her help and the help of our tutor's I am taking my weakest area and making them my strongest). She is always making time for her students to help clear up any question's and or helps in what ever area's of study for this subject we need.
what I found to be most valuable was having Ms. Coco Chi as a math teacher for math 21. She teaches in a very fun and interesting way that captures your attention, as well as, guiding you in an easy way of understanding math.
that coco took her time to show and explain how certain problems are done in a way we as students understand

she explained problems very well and broke them down for me in way that i could understand.
great
She's always there for help.
The most and valuable and helpful about Ming Jing Chi, she's a good math teacher she make sure that her student learn and be able to to the work that make me interested to learn and understand what i am doing in the class.
her sopport outside of class
Lets the students understand the work before going on
She is just awsome. She not only helps with problems but why it works and how it works in everyday situation. I highly recommend her class.
Coco goes above and beyond for her students. She is dedicated to her student's success.
She is really patient and she actually cares about how well the student is doing. If i was falling behind on my homework she would check on me to make sure that i was on track. The way she teaches math is really easy to understand and i know that i learned way easier than i learned with anyone else.
refer to question #4.
Same as above.
The simple wat she taught math 21.
she is always willing to use her time to help students improve outside of class.
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
I have none, her course was fine.
overall i thought the way you teach is great. the one thing that i had a hard time with was doing the homework because you would teach us one way and hawks would want us to do it another, which was confusing and frustrating at times.
i think the way she teaches its prefect.
nothing
more time between test to studie.
I feel that there is nothing more she could do but just keep doing what she does and she is really a great teacher. I would to have her in every class in math.
It would be helpful if Coco was aware of what we have to do on Hawkes and made sure we had a clear idea of the material by presenting it as an example the way Hawkes expects us to know.
Everything seems to be fine the way things are going.
If I could suggest one thing, it would be to continue what you are doing and move up and teach Math 26 next semester.
More time for quiz.
i have no suggestions

Ms Chi, was a fair and helpful teacher.
hawks should be cut from the course, you should find a different way of having students do homework.
thanks to her i feel that math is not as hard as i used to think.
well she needs to slow down and not do work to fast when some ppl can catch up on there assiments
:)
She's a good math teacher that's all i can say.
She is a super teacher and we all seem to really love her. Keep going girl
I recommend taking her especially if you are new to math she is great.
She is the best math teacher ever. I cannot find one person who has a bad thing to say about her. I feel so lucky to have had her as my teacher.
Thank you coco!
Thank you Thank you very much for sharing your passion and teaching me to now...LOVE Math!!
none
THE GREATEST MATH TEACHER!!!!!!!

4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
The interest that ms. has for her student to learn the Math concept
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.
Ms. Chi made learning math easy!
It helped me alot by refreshing my memory of math.. and thought me new things too.
group work and group studies
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!!
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.
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....
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..
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.
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.
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
it's just plain and simple way easier then high school, and the hawks has the practice session which REALLY helps.
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.
Very lesson we cover was helpful to me especially when I am majoring in culinary.
it made me work harder and made me believe that i can pass math
she is encouraging and has allowed me to look at math in a different way.
i think being able to do practice problems on HAWKES really helped me refresh my mind on the lessons we learned during class.
Informationn giving has a clear understand to what we my need to know for the future.

She is an easy instructor to have.
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.
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...
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...
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 would always teach in ways we'd understand.
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 goes through every thing nice and slow and keeps on it until the whole entire class gets the hang of 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 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.
that see knew what she was doing and always came prepared to class and never late.
she is their for any questions also she is an inspiration. I would recommend her to fellow students.
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.
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.
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
Ms. Chi style had help me to understand and to solve problem in a more practical and consistency manner.
Nothing, this class was great.
Awesome teacher with a great attitude and way of teaching no changes needed!
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!
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
shes a great teacher and wouldnt change anything about her teaching
No suggestions for improving he course and/or Ming Jing Chi's teaching style and methods needed at this time.
Its a great thing to push your students for the best but sometime pushing to hard can be very unsuccessful .
she's perfect
She really does a great job. I was hoping she would be teaching our next math course which is math 26.
Theres really nothing to improve. Just the way she speaks was challenging though, it kind of hard to understand her sometime.
Having more review assignments and having the class participate more often
No comments, she's GREAT!

Thank-you Mrs.Chi see you next year.
You are the best Ms.Coco! Thank you for all your help and giving it your all! Math teacher = A++
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.
Mahalo Ms. Chi, you're and awesome and outstanding math teacher!
Thank you Coco! I really appreciate you!
it is because of her I would continue to take math throughout my college term
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.

4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
Ms. Chi knows a lot about the course and material and is very helpful in showing how to complete the techniques of math lessons.
She was very helpful, and explained things clearly.
The most valuable and helpful about the course is that it's easier for me this semester because Ms. Coco Chi made it more understandable and easier for me to know what I'll be doing for the class.
The technics she taught us was helpful when reducing fractions :)
The most helpful area that was really valuable would be doing Hawkes Learning System to prepare me for my exams or quizzes.
What I found most helpful with this course, was Ms. Chi being able to explain everything in detail. I really enjoyed having her explain carefully how to do each type of problem. She may be discouraged by some students that she explains too much but in my opinion I rather her explain everything in detail instead of making us figure it out by ourselves or not getting enough detail on how to do the problems given.
The instructor's teaching techniques are great and easy to understand!
The most valuable and helpful thing about this course is that I have been refreshed and feel more confident in my math. I feel I am ready to move on to the next level.
I'm not sure if there's helpful in this course because I'm confused.

17. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
She is very willing to help you learn and workout the concepts.
She wouldn't let us use calculators to make sure we knew what to do step by step, which was awesome.
What I found most valuable and helpful about Ms. Coco Chi is that her teaching for the course is easy and understandable. She explains very well and shows examples to make sure I understand what i'm doing and she helps me in class when I need help.
What I found most helpful and valuable would be the fact that if there's a failure in class, she won't give up and make sure that everyone has good grades in class.
She is a great teacher. She really is knowledgeable about the subject she was teaching this semester.
She explained things so it was easy to understand.
She is very patient and willing to help if you have problems in math.
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
There is nothing that ms. Chee could do more to improve her teaching skills. She has good teaching methods and does her lessons very well.
N/A
I don't believe there are any more improving that needs to be done. What she's already teaching is a great impact on everyone.
I don't feel there are much for Ms. Chi to improve on. Her teaching style is incredible.
She is great!
I personally didn't like the Hawkes Learning System. Maybe rely on the system less if possible.
I would like to suggest to Ms. Coco Chi the following: a)Teach the class based on the book or Hawks. Students spend time to study and do homework based on the book or Hawks Learning. Itâ??s confusing for us when she teaches different way. Each lesson has many ways to solve the problem. And she teaches us two to three ways or formula. Besides whatâ??s the use of buying books if we donâ??t use it. b)During exams the questions were different compared to the lessons that she teaches to us. Itâ??s not helping me to think wisely, because Iâ??m confused. In my opinion it would be fair if questions are based on what she teached to us. c)Books need to be used in the class. d)Calculators need to be used on exams or quizzes. Class time is limited therefore it would be understandable to used calculators. Or limit the units of questions or extend the time.

Just needs to work on giving us tests that are more organized and more use of the examples we used to learn the lesson.
Overall great class. If you struggle with basics or need a refresher, this is the class for you.
a) In my opinion class schedule should be voluntarily distributed in the class in the 1st or 2nd week of the semester. Not on the end of October. b) Syllabus says "Calculators will not be allowed to used on exams." But we we're not allowed to used the entire semester. I think it should be stated clearly.
