Aug 23, 2014 Took him for second semester. He's pretty chill. He definitely prepared me well for the AP Exam. I don't think I would have gotten the same score had I not taken his class. Easy B if you don't slack off too much. Flag Rating

Jul 11, 2012 I had Mr. Warshaw for Calc AB. He is probably one of the best math teachers at Lowell. He tells some of the most entertaining stories about life. Very reasonsable--tells you what to expect for tests (sometimes even gives you the exact same problem to practice on the day before, so take those very seriously), curves if needed, and explains lessons very thoroughly. He tries to help you and your grade as much as possible as long as you're picking yourself up too. Flag Rating

May 21, 2012 Mr. Warshaw is far and away the most reasonable teacher at Lowell. his class actually makes sense: lecture based, with a chapter test following each unit. he collects homework randomly so that you don't know which ones to skip. it's possible to get away without doing a lot of hw, but i wouldn't recommend it. homework accounts for ten percent of your grade. the rest is quizzes and tests. difficulty depends on your math abilities. he is always happy to help you understand stuff, but don't EVER cut Flag Rating

May 21, 2012 He tells you exactly what'll be on the test, there are ZERO surprises. If you actually take the initiative to study what he tells you is on the test, it's easy to get B's and even A's (get a tutor, it's so helpful for any math class.) Almost never collects homework. He tells the class stories of his adventures as a teenager/young adult during free time, what more could you want from a math teacher???? He's hella tight (i had him for precalc) Flag Rating

May 18, 2011 Mr. Warshaw is the best teacher I've ever had at Lowell. He will meet with you after class whenever you need to. He also goes over exactly whats going to be on the test. I wish he was teaching precalc Flag Rating

Dec 09, 2010 Mr. Warshaw has to be one of my favorite math teachers. He was always there to help and answer questions, and he tells you exactly whats going to be on the tests. He always lets you do homework in class. If you do the homework you'll do fine on the tests. Hes a funny guy. Flag Rating

Aug 26, 2009 I went in thinking that he would be an enlightening math teacher, but he really wasn't... His tests were hard, only because it was easy to lose a lot of points on small details. He's a smart man, but I honestly struggled in that class and I don't know why. Wouldn't take again. Flag Rating

Jan 10, 2009 He is an experienced teacher AND student. Pre-cal1H. He knows how to do his job, and he tells us many stories and teaches in plain english. He WILL try to improve the class average if it is low. He grades tests ultra-fast too. Just DO THE HOMEWORK and you will do fine! If not, he tutors as well. Flag Rating

Jan 27, 2008 Tries to put up an aura of false confidence. If you're smart, read the book and do your homework during class. You'll learn more efficiently this way. Tests are easy as long as you know the homework. (PC1H) Flag Rating

Jan 17, 2008 I took him for PC1H. He does teach and I don't see how his tests are unpredictable. Most of the questions are just like the homework problems, but with different numbers. He does go fast sometimes but if he thinks that he hasn't covered the material well enough, he'd teach it again the next day. He goes over the previous day's homework anyways. Just do the homework.

Jan 17, 2008 Cant even explain simple math avoid for PreCal or Adv Alg Take chan for PC because he teaches, gives Extra credit. To better understand him think of Chan without the teaching or test correction. He tries to srew you over if he feels like it. Flag Rating

Jun 10, 2007 I had him for AA and personally i loved it. He does go fast, but if you just seriously pay attention for the two mods and ask him questions you'll be alright. His tests are okay, but he always puts on one hard question and if you don't get it, you get a "B." I got a B in the class but i learned a lot. Good for AA. He tells great stories. Flag Rating

Jan 19, 2007 his class is not very interactive. In order to learn, you must ask him the questions. If you say hes a bad teacher because he doesn't explain how to do the homework, you can always ask him how to do it the next day. Flag Rating

Jun 03, 2006 He's sooo cool. He used to be a professional gambler. haha. he really teaches well, and his class is pretty laid back. he grades on a bell-curve (i think, unless he changed it), so that there will be only a certain number of A's in the class Flag Rating
