The test questions are the same as the homework questions so once you memorize them it's very easy. That being said, the questions are very bad and he doesn't teach any material or give direct help to his confusing questions; it is a self-taught online class with him as the website designer.
Mr. Liaw is the worst teacher you can possibly have. He doesn't teach anything in the classroom. All he does to teach you is show you videos that he made 15 years ago. Also he says "ok" over 100 times ever class period. if you ask one question he goes ten mins explaining something that wasn't ever your question. He is by far the worst teacher I ever had.
He does not teach one bit
This class had caused me more stress and tears than any AP class I have taken and it's a regular level class. Everything is on the computer and a "concept check" takes hours to do and you still come out of it knowing nothing. He says "okay no problem" after every single freaking thing he says. He does not teach and if you have a question don't even bother to ask. He will just tell you to "picture what's going on" and that "it's not about the math" but about "achieving mastery" DROP THIS CLASS
This class is a waste of time and brain use. It is the third quarter and I have learned nothing in this class. This man is a moron, he is completely useless and one of the worst, if not the worst, teacher I have ever had. He has never once taught me anything, the entire class is on the computer and there is no guidance. He teaches us nothing, everything is on the computer and when you ask for help his only answer is "its ok" or "did u watch the podcast?" Drop this man's class if u have him
HE is by far the worst teacher at central. He never teaches a class, talks about illicit drugs, and accuses at least 50 kids of cheating each year. Im surprised hes still there.
Mr. Liaw is the worst science teacher I've had in high school so far. He does not teach in class--instead, he gives us "work days" to eat up the time he could be teaching what's going to be on the tes
One of the nicest guys I have ever met. Goes out of his way to take boring physics and makes it into one of the best classes I've ever had. One of my favorite teachers at HCHS
"lets smoke some physics" he always repeats himself and never answers your questions.."dont memorize" "dont worry about your grade" hes a nice person but annoying and not helpful too
Mr Liaw is a nice guy and he's very understanding and accepting, however i do get a little annoyed with the whole, plug and chug cheezy worksheet thing. their not cheezy, their frigging impossible.
Okay. Plug and chug. Just do it. For you 1 million, for everyone else 10. Ummm sure. Just do it. Lets be lazzzyyy. A cheezy worksheet. All famous Liaw quotes, bad teacher, nice guy..
He's good and gets the point across but this class is waaaaay too easy for those coming from Chem H. If you don't make the math prerequiset take enriched.
Mr Liaw was the best! He cared about his students more than any teacher ive ever had, he wants you to get a good grade, AWESOME GUY!
Aw. Poor first-year teacher. He's a really sweet guy, but I have a hard time understanding him sometimes. He's nice, though, and helpful.
I love J. Liaw, that's the truth...Physics in the community forever!!!
What's with all the stuff going on at the same time? Makes my brain ache and I don't learn anything. Stop with videos and teach me something!
Too many computer videos that nobody is watching anyway. Doesn't seem to pay attention to his students. Problem students seem to rule the classroom.
OH MY GOSH... he DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO HANDLE [DISRUPTIVE] PEOPLE!!! He's too friendly and passive... All he says is please focus ... it clearly doesn't work..
He's telling people 2 rate him really low to keep class sizes lower for next year . Trying 2 make it seem like he's been telling ppl to rate him low all along
He tries to relate, but he speaks down to the students as if they are lesser beings. He is annoying, can't teach, and should give up now.
This guy is so annoying and doesntexplain anything. It's not the kids fault, it's his. He just needs to learn how to teach right.
Good guy. If there are disruptive students in class, it seems as though he doesn't go out of his way to handle them. Although it seems as uncool to do so, it becomes necessary when you can't concentrate and people are throwing things around the room.
