If you put in the work, you will succeed in Mr. Lazar's class. He's an interesting guy but is very passionate about what he teaches.
I love this guy. I have him for Calc BC and he is certainly extremely knowledgable. Just read first couple of pages of his master's thesis (scholarworks.sjsu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1135&context=etd_theses) and it will be clear that whatever he teaches probably seems like the ABCs to him. He has a soothing voice but teaches well and is very approachable. Does not mind much if you are late or doing other classwork. If you ask him for help on CS/C++ he will be able to help you out.
When I met Matthew Lazar in Peninsula area, he was working as a Sport Scientist specialized in "Yellow Line Marking" on televised football games. Although he enjoyed his excelled skills and knowledge utilizing the allied mathemathetics, I told him that he'd better off be a teacher. In 2001, he got the job as math teacher and he produced excellent students ended up in Yale, etc.
I was glad to see he is getting the excellent reviews.
He is a great teacher.
Hopefully, this class will prep me for the AP test. But it's really easy, he's really nice, and makes you feel guilty about sleeping all the time. Talks around your questions, sometimes.
Yeah, we all know he's boring. But his class is actually really easy. He tells you exactly what kind of questions hes going to have on the test, so it's really easy.
Boring.. but he is an easy teacher and nice at times.. you can get away with sleeping (YES) + doing other things during class. The study sheets/practice tests, are super useful!
He gets the job done. His voice is monotone, but is a good teacher if you are willing to learn.
Went to stanford undergraduate, worked on a bug's life, how did he become a teacher?... anyway easiest class ever, very nice guy, but very monotone.
heh... i sleeppp and so does the rest of the class.. everyone has A's and complains about how much hw gives. good thing he basically gives us the "tests" before the actual test..
what a moron... if you dont get math by just lookin in the book, you are screwed. He'll also start telling everyone to be quiet if you are studying in his class
this guy is the worst teacher if u like math he makes u do everything his way but good thing for ppl who dont like math u can sleep through his class
He will never mark you tardy. Made me feel bad for always coming in late...
Slept every day, came to class late every day, A's in both sems and 5 on the AP.
splash some water in his face during lectures to wake him up
He really did teach a bit too much but I liked how he taught the whole period and whenever we finally understood it we'd do whatever. Good teacher.
dr. lazar is so awesome. we're practically best friends. those shoes of his are awful though, the white tennies
Robot lazar, speaks in a montone voice, seems to be afraid of students, and does nothing but copy problems from the book.His class needs a breakfast buffet.
Dr. Lazar 0wns math. he makes math easy and fun. a great teacher. He'w good. amazing.. he can do all the caml problems without even thinking. a true genius.
