Great physics teacher. Kids learn a lot with him and he's a very approachable teacher. He will always help students and my son did great with him whereas he struggled with other teachers. He clearly loves to teach and it shows.

I had a great time with him, but the subject itself...not so fun. Not many people seem to like him because he's slightly weird and has an odd sense of humor, but he's a good guy and teaches well.

If you understand his humor and do the worksheets you will have a good time. The note sheets are too small but the class is pretty easy and you can basically just do homework on the days without notes

He was an okay teacher; however, I was doomed when we had an intern to teach us stoichiometry...

Unfortunately there are those who cannot handle his humor. And are too lazy to do the work. That's why he gets random 1s here.

Yeah, he goes off task a lot, but at least he keeps us engaged. He's really funny, and obviously knows his stuff.

Pretty good chem teacher...his main problem is how often he goes off into tangents, but the stories are pretty interesting. You'll fall behind if you don't actually do the work though.

cool guy, bad teacher. you never know if he's going off task or if hes actually teaching something. if you do wanna do well in his class, you have to ask him question personally, not in class.

maybe some of you guys are just really science savvy and can do well in demember's class, but for everyone else, switch out. the man has no idea what he's talking about and does NOT explain.

I disagree with people who say he can't teach. A lot of my class didn't do well because they didn't pay attention or ask him to clarify things when needed, but if you do that you'll learn a lot. He's also a really nice guy.

He's amazing! If people'd listen, they'd actually understand how his uber stories relate. He's a total pyro too, I love it!

he goes off topic all the time and talks about things like orange juice, pay checks and his family. He's a good teacher for the most part.
