I dreaded class with Chesnes. He was a bully and would pick on kids who just wanted to be left alone. Sometimes he could be funny, but mostly he was mean. He wasn't much help when you were struggling with the material; He seemed uninterested in dumming it down for those of us who aren't mathematically inclined. Halfway through the school year, I figured out he was using the same tests as the other section of Pre-Calc; Cheating off those tests was the only thing that kept me from failing.

79 grad of XHS; worst teacher I had at the school. Could not convey information to kids. Maybe he's brilliant but that does not make for a great teacher.

Had a blast in his class cuz i fooled around. The material is pretty hard and you have to keep up on the homeworks. that is very helpful.

Very hard tests. Have to watch out for the trick questions. You have to form a study group to get by. Digresses often to irrelative topics. Good luck!
