He is really nice but really boring. His lectures can get pretty confusing because he makes a lot of mistakes while solving problems and is pretty forgetful. Although he's dubbed as the "worse" Calculus teacher, he still explains stuff thoroughly -- seeing as he likes to explain the same thing over and over again. Notes and homework checks are relaxed. He also preps you for the AP test fairly well.
He is very smart yet, he knows more history about the origins of math rather than how to solve the actual math itself. From my first semester, I have learned more about his family and Darwin than AP Calculus. His tests are easy but gg on the actual AP exam if you don't study.
I know that the other math teachers are harder, however, he is the worst teacher ever because he can't teach. He's also very old so not to be offensive, but he is super slow, like he frking takes 1 hr for 1 problem..
I've never had a math teacher who doesn't follow a predetermined script that has been weathered over many years of teaching. This guy knows his math and he knows the lessons from memory without having to refer to a guide like other teachers. This man is the GOD at math, especially calculus, and he has a real passion for the small, seemingly unimportant details about his subject that really shows his enthusiasm and comprehensive knowledge. Best teacher ever, I'm fortunate to have him.
He's a good guy, very patient on students.. Respectable person. explains slowly and easily to make sure everybody in the class understand. He's nice and easy, u will never hate him Gives u lots of opportunity, ec wheter ur doing good or bad.
I've seen many people cannot value how good teacher he is. Yes, his voice is monotone and sometimes boring, but if you try to listen it's not that bad. He is good at explaining things (if you can stay
Hodge sucks. Worst teacher ever. He knows his materials but he can't explain them to the students. And he has a monotone voice that makes you fall asleep within a few minutes. WORST TEACHER EVER.
he'd make an amazing storyteller. he's SUPER tall and big, but don't get scared! lenient with homework, and he's really nice :) .. although the clarity needs some working. xD
makes things a bit more complicated than it needs to be, but pretty good teacher.
he's a really nice teacher and he goes over the material a lot so it's not too hard to get a good grade in there. the problem though is that his voice really makes you drowsy!
My advice: try to get a seat close to the front--it'll be easier to stay awake (his voice lulls you to sleep because it's really low) and read the book. He glazes over the important stuff sometimes.
He's nice sometimes. If someone's sleeping it gets all upset. Well that is their choice. They don't want to listen and watch him butcher a math problem. Seriously boring class unless you can get him to tell one of his stories. He does not know what he's doing though. He says stuff like let's see if I can get the problem right maybe you can help me I didn't get it last period. I felt bad for first period cause they had it even worse than us.
make math more fun so pplz can actually pay attention
hey seriously ur class is BORING!! ever wanna try rittin h.w. on the board so dat the ppl who already know it can start workin on it!! Dont go in so much detail
dude...mr. hodge is really cool. he's nice and understanding. i like him.
Mr. hodge..to tell u the truth..ur boring. try to be more funner. and maybe people will listen to u.
