Overall, a man who thinks he knows absolutely everything, and not just about physics. He clearly plays favorites with students and his grades reflect this. Every time I went up to ask him a question I got shooed away or given a passive-aggressive answer rather than being offered any help regarding the subject of physics. He clearly stated that he doesn't like children, so it leads one to question why he ever became a high school teacher.
Mr. Platt is not a teacher I would recommend to everyone, but he can be absolutely amazing if you have the work ethic. He doesn't teach an easy subject, if you go into his physics classes, expect to work hard. A lot of other ratings say that he never goes over homework and it's because you need to ask him to go over the specific part of a specific problem you have. He isn't just going to do a whole problem for you. Overall, he's a fun guy with an interesting class. Loved having him as my teacher
CONTROL FREAK! Waaaay to self-important. Mr. Platt, if you read this, please realize that you're everything you hate about society -- you're in power so you don't have to consider the feelings of others. As a person we don't respect you, only your power and control. Your stories are ironic because you're who you hate. Sad. The ratio of time between when you teach and when we teach ourselves makes this like an online course. Retire or go into politics. Maybe you WERE a good teacher. Not anymore.
He is nice but a smartass almost all of the time, sometimes what he says is clarifying but most of the times he "obfuscates" things. He is very smart but kind of a control freak
He is a great teacher who will help any student out. But prepare to feel stupid. He's also the biggest control freak/least understanding teacher I've had. This morning in class a girl who was transferring schools came into his room while he was answering a question, and asked if he could sign a slip for her transfer (she couldn't come back later because of time). He laughed at her and told her to go away and just tell the people he refused to sign. I think she almost cried-I felt so bad for her.
Mr Platt is great. He's enthusiastic and smart and cheerful and loves to teach. He is a quick thinker and can come up with an alternate explanation if a student expresses confusion. Physics is hard, sure, but if you have to study it then Mr Platt is there for you.
Words could never do Mr. Platt's Physics class justice. Obviously, the subject is a tough one. Mr. Platt breaks it down, makes it engaging, and downright fun. He is extremely intelligent and well rounded. His practical examples are incredibly easy to understand and useful in helping students grasp the bigger picture. He is tough, but very fair. A professional in every way. I will take higher levels of Physics because he makes the subject fascinating and lets us have fun learning.
Mr. Platt made it easy for me to understand such an abstract concept like physics. He is incredibly smart and very easy to approach with questions, although most of his lectures are so thorough that i am not left with many unanswered questions.
First of all, most of the rumors about his class is false. He IS gay (homo), but he is an extremely smart teacher. When you ask questions, he will always go over it with you. He will try to make YOU get the answer by directing you towards the answer, rather than just giving out the answers. However, if you are homophobic person, I recommend not taking the class. He will sometimes make gay jokes, which are hilarious in my opinion. Not an easy A class, but worth taking.
worst teacher ever, antifun, he is so mean to all of his students
Mr. Platt is a wonderful teacher. He loves students and always tries to help everyone achieve their best.
Plays favorites. Moody. Inconsistent. Talks about himself too much. Into his looks too much. Strange person.
You love him, he loves you. He hates you, you hate him.
Very nice man but if your not a fast learner I don't recommend him. He expects you to catch on to stuff very fast.
so i had him for math freshman year and he was okay, he explained things pretty well. physics?? omg its sooo hard and he doesn't help much. plus ur in for a surprise
I had him for regular physics. He slightly touched the subject and his explanations were brief. He was not very thorough. The only reason he kept his job is because he was the only physics teacher.
smart guy. not a smart teacher. not a nice man. needs to be in control above all else. knows his stuff and you can learn. just not something to like at all. too bad because i like physics
he will pick on you forever if you get on his bad side. in his class, it's a dictatorship, you are never right. dropp this class. get him fired.
fabulous person and a very good teacher even if his first few AP Physics homework assignments made me want to crawl into fetal position and cry.
Congrats to Mr. Platt for finally steppin' it up and out. He's very bright, and expects his students to be the same. STUDY HARD KIDS!
Mr. Platt is an awesome teacher, if you're willing to work. Unless you happen to be able to magically master the dozens of formulas, aftershool help is a must.
good teacher, just stuck with a horribly difficult subject - lighten up on him
platt is too smart, and expects us to miraculously understand him. he's cool, even though his lectures don't really help with the hw...
first of all he's FREAKING SMART.. he thinks we are as smart as him and expects too much from us.he doesn't lecture much on the subject, dont go over hw..so much free time
awesome teacher...kinda hard, but very cool...u rock sensei :)
ugh. he starts out cool... but then he really gets on your nerves towards the end of the year...
Davey can prove that a pendulum is not simple harmonic motion...and can derive the quadratics equation. How cool can ya get?
He's extremely understanding to students to listen, but he's honest with students who are irresponsible and tells them to listen. And yup...great eyes.
Who can focus on physics when we can just stare into those gorgeous eyes? He's brilliant and challenging. I love it!
he is a different teacher depending on what he teaches. physics is hard yet math is easy. he is lazy though but he keeps it interesting, which is good i guess.
mr.platt is very hard but reasonable, or he could be hard cuz im in his zero period,hahah GEO sucs :)
Mr Platt has a really interesting physics class is and super helpful. I wish all my teachers were as good as him.
