He knows a ton about math, but can't teach very well. Also his tests are impossible, after a while i just gave up trying to study for them. In his class, you have to FULLY UNDERSTAND the concept or you are screwed. I had him freshman year and I ended up hating math after his class, and it had been one of my favorite subjects. Good luck and unless you are a math genius, do not take HL math.
I think he really overassigned work in my HL math class with him. At least in comparison, my college calc class seems like such a joke. I think he wasted too much time with things like the interscho
Mr. Mac is the BEST teacher for mathematics. I don't know how fast he goes for you all, but it is the perfect speed for me. He is VERY helpful. Easiness will depend on how good you are at Math!
Means well, but doesn't do very well. Isn't the best of teachers-- seems to think that since he understands it perfectly, everyone else will too. Overall all right if you're good at math
He's okay. He's a really nice guy but he goes really fast and I think he sometimes forgets that we are only freshmen and not math geniuses. Just study the book on your own and you'll be fine!
I had him for 9th grade and he is a very hard teacher. He teaches as though we are all up to his level in math but we are not and he keeps forgetting. So you will have to work extra hard to get As.
To be honest, he's not very helpful when it comes to accomidating to each students learning speed. He goes very fast so brace yourself. But college is probably like that so its good. Hes really smart.
REALLY HARD, but quite nice, and rather funny, sometimes. if you like math you'll love his class, he's pretty lenient, do your hw, if you do good on tests your set for life. over hes alright.
Mr Mac is probably the best teacher I've ever had. I agree he's not the best at teaching those who really arent good at math, but if you can follow him, he can teach you anything. Brilliant mind and brilliant teacher.
Mr. MacFarlane is a BRILLIANT teacher. He is very humble, but there is not a doubt in my mind that he is the smartest teacher I have ever had. HARD class, but he teaches it well. If your having trouble, ask questions and he will happily try to help. He's genuinely caring and really a fun teacher, just not an easy A. But hey, you're in IB. What did you expect?
It's true; he does go fast, but he also lets one ASK QUESTIONS and he makes himself available afterschool and coaching for HELP. Strong students will enjoy + he's a genuinely jovial and kind person.
You gotta love a guy who starts every class with a math puzzle. If you like math, you will LOVE this guy. He doesn't slow down for the dumb kids.
he's hard but cool. If you're HL, take him definitely
He is the hardest math teacher I ever had. He is hard to understand if you are not a super math student and goes very fast. He is very funny, though.
He is a cool teacher, but man does he go fast..geez, SLOW DOWN!
FUNNY MAN. We at MOO ALFA FETA worship you, Mr. Great Macfarlane.
A great teacher and a fun class. What more could you want? He's the best math teacher, and his class is no harder than it should be.
Mr. Mac is great...he's so funny too...kinda confusing sometimes but he tries!
He's a nice guy and all... Kinda funny... But the man has problems conveying the material.
Mr. Mac is so confusing! Maybe he's a good teacher if ur a higher level math kid.....
Mr. Macfarlane is a very funny and very good teacher.
