Mr. Bixel is a cool cat. One time we had this presentation where he blew "floo" powder into a fire. I don't really think it was "floo" powder if you know what I mean. Ha-Ha cool dude lol.

Great teacher who really cares that we learn. I had him as a freshmen and now I am a junior. My science classes since Bixel's class have been easy for me, but hard for people who skipped physical science.

I am a freshman and every time I raise my hand he totally ignores me there are times when he looks at me and just completely ignores me. He uses a website to teach us which is poorly set up but easy to use. Unlike other teachers if you answer a question right or something he doesn't say "exactly" "good" "correct", he just mumbles "okay" and he kind of makes me feel bad when he doesn't answer my question or purposely ignores me. IT IS SO HARD TO GET HIM TO TALK TO YOU. AND HELP YOU.

Mr. Bixel's class was awesome last year. Our fifth period had so much fun and it's clear that Mr. Bixel loves what he does. His website is a fantastic resource that will make or break your grade, if you don't use it then you're screwed. But if you do your homework and watch all the videos he posts then you'll be good to go! I found the exams to be hard, but still did really well. The key to Mr. Bixel's class is preparation! You'll have a really fun year if you have him.

Good luck to all incoming students. Have fun trying to teach yourself what he should be teaching us and have fun taking his practice quizzes that include questions with very odd wording. And have fun listening to him lecture about stuff that you don't understand but he treats it like you get nuclear fusion like it's the back of your hand. And have listening to Coldplay (not even old Coldplay. NEW Coldplay) and the Red Hot Chili Peppers a lot.

I'm in college and tested out of a physics course because I got a 4 on the A.P. exam. I feel like I'm better prepared than the other's in my class. Bixel was hard, worth it. Not sure what the person on 10/29 was talking about. Bixel absolutely knows physics. Better than my college professor. And I think more than 50% of the people in my class got 4's or 5's on the exam, so the person on 10/29 is lying. If you don't like hard work, you shouldn't have signed up for the class.
