Great teacher, knows his stuff. As long as you do pay attention in class, do your homework and show up to class on time every day, you'll be breezing through this class.
Though I disliked him at the start I quickly warmed up to him and even found myself learning a lot from him. He explains things in an interesting way and I honestly blame myself for judging him harshly in the first place just because I hadn't had a teacher like him before. He is extremely knowledgable and helpful (though he may snap if you ask too many questions). Outside the class, he's great to talk to and hang around. I even got Ben & Jerrys with him and a classmate. That's how cool he can be
great guy. knows his stuff
Hands down one of the best teachers in CCA. Don't listen to all the people calling him horrible, the class is difficult but Mr. Hayden makes everything clearer and helps a lot. One of the best teachers I've ever had.
Mr. Hayden so awesome! I think people on here rating him down for "being a bad teacher" just don't get that Math Analysis is a tough class. I think he does a great job at teaching but the complex mathwork and 4 by 4 schedule make it hard to fully understand materials by tests dates. You can see he loves teaching and inspiring students. He's always helpful and makes time for kids at all hours and even gives up his lunch for extra help because he knows its hard, I love him.
He is hands down the worst teacher I've ever had. He not understanding of any situation. I have never been a "trouble" student before, and I have gotten 2 referrals in his class. Actually an awful guy. avoid him at all costs.
As a parent of a student, we found Mr. Hayden to be a great math teacher. He was supportive and helpful when we needed help, was responsive to our inquiries, and motivated the students to do well.
I LOVE MR. HAYDEN HE IS SOOO FUNNY!!! BUT NOT A VERY GOOD MATH TEACHER :(
Fun class horrid teacher. I'm extremely good at math but I struggled because he didn't teach us the material well enough.
worst math teacher ive had. doesnt prepare us for tests, and the homework is not the same as the tests.
He has no organization at all and couldn't keep the class in check. Has an ego problem.
He's a great teacher! Gives amazing and useful advice, funny, and he does explain things well if you actually pay attention. He often goes off on tangents, but they're fun and interesting.
He's a really awesome guy, he gets sidetracked really easily too. He's got some great life advice, but as for the math teaching part, he could improve. I don't understand ANYTHING.
He is the teacher you will go back to vistit all the time because he is just such a nice guy! But math classes after his are way hard because he is so easy. so do the hw eventhough he doesnt check it!
Mr. Hayden's class is great if you end math at Precalc. If you go on, though, you're screwed. His class is too easy, and doesn't prepare you at all for higher level math courses.
Don't let that military background put you off. He is a great teacher and always available for help. I actually like math this year. Tough subject, but you can't blame him for that.
