Hard, but very thorough. What adults would consider a great "looking at the future" teacher.

Uh...his class is ok. Never helps you, and his only reply is "It's the Big H!". He's really really funny, but I'd rather have a boring yet helpful teacher. @_@

I can understand why people hate him, and he gets annoying sometimes, but he teaches the subject better than anyone else! SO stop complaining.

pretty good teacher. ive had him for two years and i think that he is the best math teacher at Costa. He is up to date with technology and knows math.

He just hated me, well the fact that I constantly made fun of him and never did my homework probably added to that, but he didn't have to be so lame.

Come on. His humor is bad sometimes, but he is still funny. Teaches the math just fine. Stop pointlessly ranting! Go Z-Dog.

Advice: If you're confused about the subject, seek help elsewhere. Otherwise: WHOAWHOAWHOAWHOAWHOA!! ... I guess some ppl can't handle the pressure.

He's a pretty good and straight forward teacher although he runs the class in a pretty fast paste. The key to get a good grade in his class is do the homework.

Mr. Z is probably the best Algebra 3-4 honors and Pre-Calculus teacher, but this only shows you how bad the other teachers in those subjects are! Z is a good teacher, just needs to pay attention to his students more and less his music/guitar/computer.

good guy at heart...knows a lot of math and has potential to be a really really well-liked teacher if he wasnt so mean to his students. sometimes he's got to realize he should not give such hard problems on test, but ones so we show that we get the concep

well...sometime's he's funny...but usually the joke is making fun of a student. He never lets us see our grade in the class!! THat's kind of annoying, but most other teachers don't tell us either, so that's okay. Overall though, he's a nice guy.

don't like the pressure of being called on in class to answer a question about something he just introduced a minute ago. But from the reputation of other math teachers I think he's the best.
