The only class I ever cried over was his class. I actually tried to do things right and barely managed to get out of there with a C. Nonetheless, he is a fantastic teacher, even though he's strict.
if you're on his good side then it's not too bad, but he doesn't always explain everything. he puts a lot of weight on tests (about 70%), so don't fail any tests, or else your grade's in the trash
OMG yeah he does make you say yes! I've been kicked out of his class so many times for saying "yeah".
i agree that he tends to embarrass students. however, he taught me alot and is very young at heart. plus, he plays really good music while we work. id much rather work on volume and surface area with iron maiden on then silently. really good teacher.
Loved Mr. Martin. He has hilarious stories, and if he likes you it is to your benefit. He oftentimes gets off topic, but he is a great Algebra teacher. I am terrible at math, but I got an A all year.
Mr. Martin is very wise and likes to teach things about life more then math. He is a great teacher and there are no surprises, so getting a good grade is easy. He makes you say "yes" other than "yah" because saying yes is the right thing to say.
I hate Geometry but having Mr. Martin helped me out he's cool and good at explaining the material he also can be strict at times but overall the best math teacher I have ever had
after 7 years I still remember some of his wisdom... always say "yes" not "yah"... Mr Martin was a great teacher... he will help you learn!
He's cool if you consider him as a friend and an adult you can talk with about contemporary stuff. But he's not very good as a teacher. The job doesn't suit him. He also thinks he knows everything and likes to embarrass his students.
Mr. Martin is my favorite teacher at El Toro..hez a kool guy that makes geometry easier. Plus we get to listen 2 kool music while working on h-work.
very laid back teacher, except didn't know anything about teaching
you really know your stuff. your way cooler than tom martin.
hes a very cool teacher very kool music and always puts a little fun into stuff...makes tests easy
always understanding and willing to help. he's a really cool teacher. he's plays good music too!
