Mr. Jaye constantly pushes you to do well, and will constantly drill info until everyone understands it. The tests are hard but they're manageable as long as you care about math.

Mr. Jaye is one of the best math teachers I have ever had. He might be a little crazy, and kinda weird at times, but he is understanding, and funny. He has a hard-line way of teaching that's very black or white, but its VERY EFFECTIVE and I absolutely loved it. Everything he taught stuck with me. He's strict about the methods he wants you to use, but it stays in your head. His tests reflect what we do in class and HW. If you get him, just remember to do the HW, or he will give you HELL about it

I had him for Algebra II. He was very helpful and tried his best to get someone to understand the topics. He gets mad at those who do not try. Those people who give him a low rating must not be trying.

Mr. Jaye is a good teacher. He's a strange human being in the sense that he's old fashioned and makes really weird jokes, but his teaching methods are clear and he cares about the understanding of his students. Unfortunately, he's not the most understanding person himself. It's really important to do all of his homeworks. His tests can be hard but as long as you study the notes (take notes) then you'll be fine. He doesn't give extra credit. Sometimes his class is boring. But he's a great person.

He's so mean, and gets very irritated if you don't understand something. Make sure not to get on his bad side. He once said, "Why don't you take your head out of your ASS" because a student put up the homework incorrectly.

I had Jaye for Trig and he was very informative. His tests were a bit hard at first, but it got easier as I got used to his teaching style. As long as you attempt at the homeworks and participate, you will get a good boost on your grade. Biased on girls sometimes..

He will only be nice to you if you are good at math. Three missing homeworks and you are likely to fail. Jaye will completely ignore you if you struggle in his class. Girls will do better, guess why.
