I absolutely love him!!!! He has been my saving grace. He teaches the material so well, and for the students who dislike like him don't have a legitimate reason. DO THE HOMEWORK!!! The homework is so similar to the test, and pay attention in class, unlike most math teachers, he doesn't teach info that won't be on the test. His lessons are straight to the point!

Unfortunately he is still teaching. Very unreasonable and unfair teacher. I think he just hates his job and his students.

No one liked him. Bad teacher. Too strict. No opportunities to do good in the class. If you have him shoot yourself in the foot.

He was mostly likely the worst math teacher I have had ever. He doesn't check homework. He is always busy doing something else for my Pre-Cal/Trig class he loves.

If you're someone who learns by doing... this class is not for you. He will immediately pick and choose who he likes and dislikes, and there are no chances for retribution. His tests are mindless.

I think Mr. P. is an awesome teacher. Yeah he is strict, but his teaching is good. I dont know how you all got away with doin ur nails 'n stuff in class...u all must be pretty sneaky or sat in the back where he culdn't see u. I hope I have him for algebra 34 next year!

hes a pretty nice guy, but the class was amazingly boring. then again, maybe it was just because it was math...i understood pretty much everything we did, which was amazing for me, and he sat me next to my best friend and didnt say anything when we would goof off in class. we read, did our nails, played cards and this mini connect four game...you name it. and we never got in trouble at all.

Probably the best math teacher I've ever had, b/c I actually understood what he taught. Come on, he's not THAT boring, and I actually have seen him smile before. :)

He is a very good teacher. He knows how to explain things so that the kids can understand it. He can be boring, but I think that is more because he teaches geometry
