Mr.Baker is my duuude. He's really a math nerd; so excited about teaching and eager to help us learn. He always stresses that he's available after class and during lunch for help if needed. Honestly I hate math but Mr.Baker made me choose to continue on a harder course than I would've usually chosen because of his skill and attitude. AAAAAA+

Excellent Math teacher, he not only gives you a basic understanding of the topics you learn, but also connects it in a deeper sense to both the real world and a theoretical standpoint. Very intelligent, definitely recommend.

The best math teacher in the district at the very least. thoroughly understands all concepts and can explain very well, knows how much homework is too much homework and his study guides are a godsend. while not all people appreciate his jokes I do and will help you if you struggle or need to talk about the concepts. This dude is fantastic and the best math teacher I've had

THE BEST MATH TEACHER I HAVE EVER HAD HANDS DOWN!! If you're a slacker and don't give a crap about getting good grades then ya, you're not gonna get an A. But if you participate and have fu with it, it will be your best class. He explains things very thoroughly and makes sure every. Single. Student. In his class understand. Also he goes over the homework so you can understand better. He gives you study guides before tests and gives extra credit, so do it if you can! I RECOMMEND HIM 100% for math

Haha, Mr. Baker is cool and he's a good teacher. He may seem boring, but he'll occasionally reveal his sarcastic (and awkward) sense of humor (haha, I love those moments). Go Mr. Baker!

Boring personality. Way too strict (i.e. will not put up with anything). Tests are harder than Dunkum's (though not too bad) and unlike Dumkum's class, there is a penalty for late work. But he knows his material and is passionate about math. Can't complain, I guess...

I had MR. Baker for TCM and he absolutely despised me! He is an okay teacher but he never gives any retests so what you get is what you get and he never gives extra time to finish which really sucks if aren't super fast at math You have to show ALL of ur work to or else you lose points. Basically take Dunkum instead

I had Mr. Baker for AP Calc AB and I found his teaching methods difficult to understand at times. He uses lots of graphs for explanations which I did not find very helpful.

AP Calculus is not easy, and Mr. Baker's test are often just as hard. However, he is a great teacher, and will go out of his way to give you the help you need.

I had him for AP Calc. Great teacher, but like many other teachers, if you do well on the AP test, he should raise your grade. Explains everything very very well! Awesome teacher. Get him.

I stunk at AP Calc and his methods did not work for me. He is fairly disorganized, but really knows his stuff and wants to help. He is easy to work with and has a good sense of humor.
