First off, I have met maybe one or two teachers as excited about their subjects as Dr. Odden, and none of them work in the math department. He genuinely loves math, but his excitement makes it sometimes a little difficult to follow - that is, if you miss a bit and don't immediately ask him to go ov
Mr. Odden is my favorite teacher. He makes math seem crazy trippy and really cool. You should check out his phd thesis on solenoids. It's insane. Very clear, but likes to think too much. Sometimes we just want to learn the shortcuts. He's also endearingly awkward.
Mr. Odden is by far the best math teacher at PA (after having 3 others). His tests are straightforward, he clearly knows the subject inside and out, and he is more than happy to discuss deeper maths with you.
Mr. Odden's hilarious. Occasionally, he'll give tricky questions, but never more than two per test. His class is very enjoyable, and his tangents are always very cool.
He is pretty mean to people he doesn't know or people he has a bad impression of.
He is the best math teacher I have ever had at PA or elsewhere. So clear - so straight forward. He doesn't enjoy tricking his students like other math teachers do in the department
The funniest math teacher. He's very energetic. He's good at explaining things, but his test are wicked hard. He gives lots of partial credit though.
really funny guy, awesome house counselor. he's so smart, and makes the class entertaining. his tests are hard but he's really helpful. sometimes class was extremely boring though.
great teacher. great at explaining stuff and pretty fair on grading.
one word: AWESOME. KNOWS HIS STUFF and KNOWS HOW TO TEACH IT WHILE KEEPING CLASS FUN.
cool guy! very funny too! his class isnt too hard and hes really chill about everything.
He is an extremely cool guy and a wonderful teacher. I LOVE you Dr. Odden!
Had him as a substitute once; seems like a really smart and clear teacher. I'd love to have him as a regular teacher. And his shortcuts make things much easier.
mr. odden is one of the best teacher i've ever had. if only everyone were that excited about math...
Seems like a nice man. Very entertaining in class. Gives clear explanations. Not very helpful outside of class if you're not a math genius, though. Likes to give a tough last question on tests.
Awesome guy. Explains stuff so well homework isn't needed. Very very easy. An excellent math teacher. He likes SNL and Monty Python too, which is always a plus.
his class is a little tedious, but as a person, he is very cool. watches SNL, goes to movies, and generally in tune with pop culture.
Boring and unable to be clear. Very unhelpful if you are not a math person- he doesn't know how to explain.
A great teacher, extremely excited about math, and he is willing to help you if you need it.
Mr. Odden is the best!!! I've never seen anyone get so excited about math. Just be careful when he tells you that he has a easier way to solve a problem, it will probably be VERY confusing!!!
doc o's the man yo... anyone who can get that excited about calculus and whatnot is the man you want teaching it to you
i'd probably like him more if the class wasn't so boring
