Nov 23, 2014 Mr. Altman knows a lot but has terrible social skills and tends to intimidate more socially awkward classmates who don't handle adversity well Flag Rating

Nov 05, 2014 Just study, work hard, and don't cheat. I do well in his class, sometimes it's hard, but overall, I've learned so much and think more in his class than any other. Flag Rating

Oct 03, 2014 If you don't understand his teachings, he makes you the joke of the class and will make fun of you, which makes is very intimidating, and causes us (his students) to never want to ask questions. If you don't understand the material from the book, he will criticize you, and explain it the EXACT SAME way that the book does. His tests can be very difficult, and he claims that if we practice more, we will get higher scores, but how can we practice something that he doesn't teach us? Flag Rating

Mar 12, 2014 Always very condescending! If he doesn't like you, you are screwed for the rest of the year. If you don't know anything he will make you the joke of the class and humiliate you. He always acts like he knows everything but often lacks in showing it. Flag Rating

Mar 05, 2012 Mr. Altman deserves a lot of credit. I have him for Pre-AICE Math 2 and he is probably the best fit teacher for the program! Very intelligent and always helpful to me. Flag Rating
