Calculus wasn't that hard with her. There were some really tricky questions on tests, but there were also a lot of tests that were pretty easy. She is super nice and easy to talk to and is very helpful, she actually wants people to ask her questions. Do all your homework, ESPECIALLY the hard questions in the textbook, THOSE ARE OFTEN THE THINKING QUESTIONS ON HER TESTS. Also, her songs for derivatives HELP SO MUCH. She is a very generous marker too. My favorite math teacher. 9/10

Ms Dowey was one of my favourite teachers. Really kind, funny and very helpful. She cares about teaching and it comes across to her students. I thought calc was one of my easiest courses, and I attribute that largely to her

Really hard but helpful teacher! You can tell by the way she teaches that she loves doing it. She will give up her lunch many times to answer your questions. Truly dedicated teacher with some hard tests.

Taught me in grade 11 and grade 12 calculus. Pretty good teachers
I kept on thinking of the final speech she had for graduation, but i just cant remember the exact wording, it was something about the limit does not exist

If you love math you'll love Ms. Dowey. She's awesome if you have the right attitude. She marks really hard though so make sure you listen to her hints 'cause she doesn't teach you what you don't need

She is the absolute best math teacher in every way. After graduating coming up to 10 years ago, she's the one I remember the most. I would try to transfer to her class...I did.

GOOD teacher. Yet she's hard and can be very picky on her marking. WARNING: she'll give you this look (that makes you feel stupid) when you ask her questions.
