He is a hard grader, but if you try and are nice he helps you. The average kid won't do all that well(a C grade), but if you put in the effort a B+ is not unachievable.

One of the best teachers I've ever had. I took a couple of his classes around 2000 and to this day I use things he taught us about flow charts, feedback loops and systems theory to understand and solve problems. He is one of the few teachers that I can honestly say 'taught me how to think.' I was more than prepared for college.

Usually nice; don't make him mad,he yells. The only homework he ever assigns is reading notes, so do them and you'll do well. Pay attention when he talks, especially about labs. Ask him if he's ever been in a fight.

He's not your typical teacher, a bit ADD, but a relatively nice guy. You learn lab skills, but the only factual content you'll learn is from your textbook. So if you're a slacker, you'll learn nothing and do pretty well.

to do well in this class just keep up on homework. tests are usually fairly simple, except once in awhile he gives very confusing critical thinking questions.

I had him for biology last year and now I have him for Environmental Science. If you do okay on tests and quizzes and try to study...you'll do fine.

By way, this is the easiest class, at the same time he can't teach well and keep the class control. He always goes off topic which gets us behind schedual.
