I really hate his style of teaching. And I hate when you ask him to explain something differently he just yells the same thing.
I had Mr. Hargraves in the early 1980s and he was obnoxious. He wasted time putting on a show rather than instructing the class.
I had this teacher over 20 years ago. He is hilarious thoughtful and besides Mr. Barr The only memorable teacher from my years at that school. The 2 best teachers ever to grace RHS hallways
Best teacher I have ever had, hands down. I learned so much in his class and math became my favorite subject... He made everything so interesting! I never had trouble with anything because if I needed extra clarification I could always come in after school and get help. He is hilarious, understanding, smart, interesting and fun. I think of him as my teacher and my friend. I'm not in his class anymore :( but I still come in after school to talk sometimes and get help on my current math homework.
Tends to make jokes 80% of the class time. I sometimes felt like he was yelling at me when I asked him a question. He's pretty easy going most of the time though. If you miss a day, you don't need to say anything - he'll come to you. Really does try to help. At the end of the year, he adjusted my 88% to be an A because I got a 95 on the final
Mr Hargraves is tailor-made for the athlete. His jokes are amusing, but repetitive, and sometimes offensive. The main issue with his sense of humor, though, is that he does not seem to understand when he ought to stop.
His teaching method is generally adequate for those who possess some skill in mathematics. The textbook is good and if you can learn things from mostly reading and looking at examples, you will do fine. However, Mr Hargraves is extremely bad at explaining the same thing in two different way
He is a great teacher for Math Analysis. Mr. Hargraves prepared me well for AP Calculus, and his former students were the only ones who knew what was going on in the class. Mr. Hargraves is a nice, and funny person. He is very helpful and is one of the best teachers at our school.
I had him in 1983 for Geo. He tried too hard to be considered "cool" and liked to taunt the quiet kids in order to be liked by the popular kids.
One of those teacher you love or hate. He is odd but funny and knows all that he teaches. Helps out anyone if they have any trouble.
he is the best math teacher i have ever had! he always keeps the class fun and exciting!
The funniest and most understanding teacher I have ever had
Great guy with a hilarious sense of humor that brightens class, but is a little lacking when it comes to the actual teaching part.
If you come to Hargraves for help, he will walk things through for you carefully, thoroughly, and faithfully. He's very reassuring in one-on-one situations. He keeps the class awake with his witty (if not annoying) jokes.<3
a little too many jokes in class. but he is a good teacher and a wonderful person.
He is an excellent teacher. I learned so much from his class.
A pretty good teacher that has alot of very creative and clever jokes.... may not be the best teacher for some, but worked for me.
nice guy, comedical and entertaining, but shouldn't really be a teacher of anything other than maybe logic
makes it interesting-- teaches why not just working problems
He's funny, but it's hard to understand the work in class.
He is funny but one of the worst teachers ever because he never tells you how to do the work. He gives homework everyday and even gave us a packet over x-mas!
he is an excellent teacher because he actually teaches unlike that fleharty last year. He knows what hes talking about and nothing on his tests is a suprise
I thought he was very funny...but it was pretty hard to learn math from him. Maybe that was because I had his class at 7:30 in the morning....
although his humor gives us a great break from the boring teachers, he focuses too much on that and not enough making sure we got the material down
i thought this guy was hilarious...for the first two months. could hardly understand his teaching. I had to re-read the textbook for every topic. glad i'm out
This man is a fruit i tell you! As if its not bad enough, his son and my bro always did sports together i've known him too long...
