While his class caused me great stress, there are certain topics in physics that I will never forget because of him. I feel like I always had a solid understanding of the material AFTER each of his tests. I think he did this by design so that maybe we struggled in his class, but that we would have a solid understanding by the end of the year. I know my physics professor next year won't come close.

UGH. His class was so difficult! He's so arrogant too; he thinks he's the greatest teacher in the world, but he isn't. The majority of his tests were much more difficult than his notes. His handwriting is horrendous too. I walked out with an A and a double 5s on the AP exams but I'd be lying if I said it was because of him.

First of all, Physics is the hardest course in high school, especially Physics C (accompanied with the three wonderful phases of Magnetism). Mr.Murray really tries to help his students but it is hard to grasp his teaching method. Although his class is difficult and he could do much better teaching, I love him. Where would we be without his "wild parties" and other stuff.. Really funny guy. By the way. He loves half days and facts. Remember that. Oh and he adores carnivals. A lot. Cheers

He made me dread going to school. I would of learned more by having an English teacher explain his countless packets to me. Sitting in his class was a waste of time, and I wish he would of taught more and complained less.

Mr. Murray is a wonderful physics teacher, even better now that he's fully recovered. He supplements the material with anecdotes and makes sure those who can understand the material, do. The AP Physics exams are a breeze after taking his classes.

Despite an insanely difficult year, Mr.Murray continued to be a fun and committed teacher that loves his job (most of the time ^_~). His lessons can be a bit confusing if you don't read the book or do the homework before the lectures, though, because he doesn't start at the very basics. As long as you come prepared and take his class seriously, he will be your best friend. If you put forth effort, you'll get a 5 on the AP exam

Okay, I don't learn (practically) anything from listening to Mr. Murray in class. I have to read the textbooks, do the packets, ask friends, etc, to even have hope of getting a good grade in his class. He's a cool teacher, i suppose, but it's a really hard class, but I think some people are naturally good at it, seriously.

By far the most fun teacher at the school, and probably the only thing actually resisting what the administration is doing to the school. He teaches a very hard subject, so pay attention, or do lots of work on your own at home, otherwise you're screwed.

His tests are ridiculously easy, but he somehow manages to prepare us well for the exams anyway. He's really dedicated to his students; he'll often come after school and teach us physics or do so during some period the whole class can skip. Like Mr. Hale, he's good at acting up to impress students--I suppose it comes from having taught for a long, long time. He's a cool guy, and one of the best teachers at Suncoast.

Mr. Murray is amazingly nice, funny and knowledgeable. Apart from being a wonderful physics teacher, he is also a mentor whose life experience and wisdom is transferred on to us through his philosophical discourse which we are exposed to after having thoroughly covered the educational material. He is nothing short of awesome. :)

Awesome teacher. Knows the material very well and presents it in a way that forces you to pay attention and LEARN it. Although, he started using odd numbers in his sample problems to stop me from finding shortcuts, about halfway through the year. --------------------By the way, the square root of dog is between 102 and 106, usually around 104 or 105. Just so you know. 8)
