Unlike some other amth teachers at the school he knows his stuff. If you want to learn he is the best. But he runs a very permissive classroom. No attemtp to discipline students at all. If you have the math bug, he will take you the next level if you listen and work with him.

He is a really smart guy, but he always gets off topic. I learned nothing over the course of the year. Some poor kids are going to have him next year.
