Mr. Barry isn't a bad teacher. He does take away points, but only if you don't follow his instructions on the homework. I have never lost points. I do get a lot of bonus points though and it can seem excessive. He does explain the material well, but is a little weird.

Mr. Barry is a very good teacher if you pay attention as soon as you get distracted you get lost. He will stay after and help you with any chance he can get and even though some of his jokes were a little outdated and unfunny he still tried.

I had Mr. Barry for three years at YHS and by the time I graduated I had an A average in math, something that was previously out of reach for me. For those that have problems, show effort, stay after and you'll do well.
