I loved this guy, and let me tell you why.
First of all, he's smart,
Undeniably so, in fact.
Couldn't find any faults, besides one
Kid.
So there was this
Horrible child, and I won't name him, but
Understand that he was trash.
No one liked him, and he would
Go on to attempt to be Antrim's pet, but
Oh no, he would fail miserably.
Other than that, I loved Antrim, he is the reason I love chemistry and am still taking Chem classes to this day.

Mr. Antrim is honestly one of the best teachers I have ever had. He is both funny and knowledgeable which makes class enjoyable. If you like science, you will love his class. It is a lot of work and can be stressful at times, but with Antrim as your teacher it's worth it and you know that you will get at least a 4 on the AP test no matter what! So sad he is retiring next year!

Take AP Chemistry, you will not regret at all. Mantrim is my life and love because his class is easy A. As many people say there are lots of work, but you'll be fine as long as you don't procrastinate. You do little each day, but don't procrastinate! Mantrim is the teacher who is monotone and the class is mostly self-study. Well, you don't need to since tests are easy. Tbh, idc about AP Chem Per. 1, the class I sleep or do my math hw.
I love Mantrim, thank you for giving Chem SAT 770 and 97.9%

Mr. Antrim's honors chemistry has been one of the best classes I have ever taken. He is an awesome teacher and makes sure you understand the content before the test. His lessons are extremely informative, fun, and applicable as he likes to pull in references from his vast knowledge.
It can be hard to get his attention at times. But once Antrim helps you understand the lesson in his way, you will understand the lesson thoroughly. He will make you into an expert on it. He is a superior teacher.

This guy is the most memorable teacher I've had, but in a bad way. If you want to ask him a question, while class isn't in session, and he doesn't like you, there's a good chance he'll ignore you if he doesn't feel like talking to you. I know that sounds ridiculous, but it's happened more than once. To succeed in his class, you need to make a good impression in the first month of school.

Pros
Teaches well and makes sure that you can pass the AP exam. Very experienced and a cool guy.
Cons
Assigns an extreme amount of workload so this class will be a huge pain if you are taking multiple AP/honors. Tests are very difficult even if you study. If you want to get an A you need to devote nearly all your time to this class, not a joke! If this is your only class and if you put all your effort in it you will learn a lot and get at least a B- but otherwise it would be stressful.

Mr. Antrim is a big veteran and AP Chemistry was one of the most challenging class I've taken. I think Mr. Antrim is a wonderful teacher but I totally understand why people won't like him because of how hard the class was. Due to his position at school, it is a bit hard to approach Mr. Antrim because he is busy here and there, but overall I felt I learned a lot thanks to him.

Mr. Antrim is by far the worst teacher ever. He's knowledgeable in chemistry but he chooses not to teach during class. He also favors some periods over others in terms of extra credit and heads up on homework checks. There's way too much work. If you ask him a question, he will literally nod, then walk away. Then he puts things on the exam that were not covered in class and expects all his students to learn everything from his handy dandy chemcasts which are ultimately useless.

AP: becomes a self-taught class. prepare for lots of homework and projects. run as far as you can if you want an easy grade. stay if you like studying and want to be a pre-med/chem/bio major and get ap credit (not worth the work, however).

You sacrifice your GPA for a good score on the AP exam. Not recommended for AP Chemistry since it's not worth the extra grade point. Gives a buttload of work. Recommended for future chemistry majors/pre-med students who like to study and memorize.

I had him for one semester of honors chemistry. He was a very helpful teacher and assisted me whenever I needed help. The way he teaches is very amusing and his jokes during labs and demos make the class even more fun. His study guides take a lot of time to complete but in the end they help you a lot when the time comes to take the test. He usually allows late homework and is very understanding in the fact that there will be some nights where you just couldn't complete every single assignment.

His class was okay. I enjoyed honors better than ap (I didn't have him for honors though, had now retired (?) fosse). He obviously was a good teacher, I nearly had Cs both semesters and got a 5 on the AP. If you are looking for a high AP score, this is the best science ap to take.

Mr. Antrim is a great guy, but his lectures are boring and get off topic. He loves to interact with all of us and learn who we are, but I find that as much as I study for his tests, I never do well on them. It's probably because science isn't my thing. If you enjoy science, he is a great teacher to have. He likes to use different teaching methods and is always willing to listen to your opinions. He also brings in treats for my class and has competitions between classes for extra credit.
