I was like some of you guys...complaining about how his teaching sucks and how he doesn't help students. It's when I started asking for help and coming to him directly basically showing interest in my grade) I saw him as very helpful.
Mr. Dartland does an excellent job sticking to what's important to learn while keeping the class entertaining enough that you don't fall asleep. He's very reasonable if you work hard in his class and are a diligent student.
mr dartland is an awesome teacher i think some people judge him based on the subject he teaches it is a very hard subject, and listening would get u very far he is also very funny
He's a pretty good teacher and does a good job of explaining things, though he could work on helping people :\
I had Mr. Dartland two years ago for honor physics. Although he may not be good at explaining, he is very helpful. Physics is boring though, but he makes it fun and actually cares about his students
He's one of those people that doesn't really seem like he was supposed to be a teacher
He's actually a really nice guy; he's just a little shy. Don't be so quick to judge. You should EXPECT physics to be boring. It's not the study of rainbows and butterflies.
He is one of the most unhelpful teacher i ever had. he doesn't seems like to help students. The only that might grab student's attention is some lab he done in the class.
I guess it was a good thing that I dropped his phsics class. That class felt like it was 2 hours long!
The tests and projects were all fairly easy. While Mr. Dartland isn't the greatest teacher, I found the class enjoyable.
Dartland is probably one of the best teachers i have had at Helix, maybe it was just the combination of the students in the class with him but everyday was fun.
Do your hw and you'll get at least a B. The tests are easy cause he gives you the formulas. But he will bore AND confuse you to death! Take Bio or Chem instead.
some people don't give dartland enough credit. he was cool about a lot of stuff (non-class-related) despite the fact that his teaching style is somewhat lacking.
