I had JMar for both Honors Geo. and Algebra 2. Yes, his honors Geo course is a little tough but don't be discouraged if you drop out. His Algebra 2 class is much easier and he does a better job of explaining how to do problems. He also curves the tests a lot which helps because you can get a better score or even receive extra credit like I did. In honors geo. I finished with a C+ and a B- . In Algebra 2 I finished both semesters with an A and didn't drop below a 90.
I enjoyed Mr.Marheineke class, as I had him for Algebra 2. From what I know, he is an easy Algebra 2 teacher, but his Honors Geometry is nearly impossible to get an A in. He has homework quizzes on occasions, so as long as you did your homework,and you should be able to do well on the quiz. The test are not bad, but sometimes hard. On both finals, are are allowed a piece of paper front and back, and if you complete the study guide 20 pts. is added to the Final, as I was able to get a 100%.
hes a bad teacher to a class but a great 1 on 1 teacher so ask a lot of questions
he eats the textbooks in the corner of the class room and thats why he is so fat
He is an okay teacher. One thing I would recommend to future students is to ALWAYS ask questions when you are confused, he will help you. Most importantly, study everything you got wrong on the homework and quiz, it may be on the test.
Probably the worst teacher I have had so far. He expects you to know the section even before he teaches it to you and thinks when you are asking a question about the section that it is either to waist time or is a joke. Plus he takes forever to grade work, put them in PCR, and pass them back. Also he is not a very fun teacher, and all of he stories he tells us are of either the track team (which he is the head coach) or about things in his daily life that remind him about math.
he rambles a lot not good if you have auditory processing.
He's a GREAT Algebra teacher, but when it comes to Honors Geometry, he rushes sections which make it unclear to a quarter of students in the class
His lectures can drone on, but the course itself is easy. He's not a bad teacher.
He's alright i guess, his class may be boring but he's just okay
he teaches right out of the book so it is like listening to a tape of the book. he can be confusing cause he goes so fast and expects you to know it before
I slept through every class and still pulled an A... every boring but tests are disturbingly easy
