Mr. Howard always loses things and also seems to think that he is right and each student is wrong. He also has unnecessary TED talk videos and makes a lot of jokes in class while tests are going on. He doesn't have good notes and uses projectors to do work. Along with that, his projects are also not based on geometry but more like an art project. Switch out, for your life. (P.S. 89.99.... he doesn't round.)

He's a cool dude (oldie guy but tech-loving), but that's the extent. His lessons are essentially word for word from textbook. He throws these "memory logs" into the lessons. Didn't really improve my learning experience. Learning from text book is easier. Tests are long but easy. He gives projects. Like WHO IN THE WORLD!!! WOULD GIVE MATH PROJECTS!!! (Oh, I get it... Real world simulation. That's stupid.)
Only saving graces are that there are so much Extra Credit, and TED talks are often.

im rating his class as hard because you have to learn everything by yourself through the book. also the things he writes on the board are super tiny so you still have to squint your eyes even if you are wearing glasses. the projects he assigns are also confusing as well, you will just have to make it look nice and ask others what to do. also he is super lazy and only upload grades once a month, even if you have an error on yours. if you have him SWITCH OUT NOW SRSLY YOULL REGRET IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He's the worst teacher ever that alters your answer when you answer his question in order to make fun of you. If you get him as a teacher get him switched out asap!

He really wants to be a good teacher, but is just incompetent. He literally takes things straight from the book and forces you to copy everything or he will take away points (as if I couldn't just open the book and have all the information right there). He writes ridiculously small and has a mess of stuff on the board. The worst part is the Practice Problems at the end of class when he places it on a random part of the board and you have to find it before class ends. Sit in the front. That's all

Worst teacher I have ever had in my entire life. I'm writing this review because today he had a surprise chapter test on the whole chapter that we didn't finish. I would've probably passed it with an A if he hadn't put two geometry questions on the test (I'm in algebra 2). I asked him if he would give us the formulas to solve these word problems because it had been awhile, but he told me that I should know it. I still do not understand how these questions had to with our chapter.

He can't exactly teach. He teaches out of the book and then doesn't teach it well. It gets super annoying and I can barely learn anything from him.

Honestly i think he is a pretty good teacher. Best thing you can do is pay attention and actually make an effort to learn. If you need help you can't be afraid to ask him for it, just don't waste his

He's a really weird guy but I think he isn't bad at teaching. As long as you can learn from the examples on the board, your good.

At first i really liked him because he is funny, but he is very shallow. I do not like that he does it one way and doesn't like if the students challenge him or points out his mistake.

Fakest teacher ever. Can't teach math at all and goes by the book. Everything taught in class is almost irrelevant to the tests.

He's okay. He does show us how to do problems step by step. Unfortunately, he has a habit of talking to the board and telling unfunny jokes. Friend said he looks like borat. I find him pretty strict.

I strangely like him. The class is never boring for me. He's unpredictable and has diverse ways of teaching, though he is extremely hard and strict. Can be funny at times.

I had him for Algebra 2 and found his class to be a breeze. His tests and quizzes are from simple, and so are his projects. Bring your 'wrapped' textbook to class everyday, and you will do fine. If you scored below a C, he will allow you to retake the tests.

This is a boring and entirely unhelpful class. All of his examples are straight out of the book, and the book itself is not that helpful. Also, he assigns far too much homework with no regard for us.

doesn't teach at all. This is his first year teaching Pre Calculus, and seriously, he can't do it. Talks into the board, and basically copies the book onto the board. Not helpful at ALL.

I'm really not learning anything is his class. All he does is take examples from the book. I just learn on my own. He doesn't really respect his students. Except the jocks.

He's too easy on us and can't make up examples of his own and expects us to learn from the book on our own. He's very mellowed out and doesn't pay attention to cheaters on tests.
