Mah boy Mr. Thompson makes sure every student understands the material.
He seems like a nice guy, but he does not teach (at least for AP Physics). Rely on your previous knowledge from Honors, reading the textbook, and doing quest. Tests are very hard, but quizzes are alright. Take double period if you can! Tests are 35% of your grade with double period. He does not care if you sleep or do other homework in class (its not like he teaches anyway), and nobody takes notes. He's chill, but you get wrecked on tests (AND THOSE APS) if you don't put in a TON of selfstudying
Informative, funny, easygoing, and clear. It's fun to be in his class and made physics a pleasant part of my day. He's also pretty ripped. That is all.
Extremely smart yet chill dude. If hirsch and kim had a child and all their good traits were passed on, tompson would be the one.
THOMPSON IS THE MAN. that and he could probably snap your head off with his huge muscles. He teaches AP physics like how it should be taught, like a college class. You do your Quests, read your textbook, listen to him do the proofs in class and take your 5s and As. A 5 is nearly guaranteed if you put in any amount of effort in the class and the AP exam will pass you out of tons of physics in college.
He is an interesting and cool guy and is passionate about physics. However, he isnt very good at teaching AP Physics. Indeed, reading the textbook is more helpful than his lectures. I noticed he doesnt care if people sleep/do other homework in his cl
Since he doesnt teach lessons, you will have to rely on the quests and the textbook to do well on the tests. He is a cool guy but he hates people who don't take his class seriously.
He is great, but it takes forever to get your tests back.
His lectures are not very useful, AP physics is all about reading the textbook yourself. But he is an interesting and nice person. Not hard to get A in the class
great teacher. really cool. makes physics interesting
After reading this if teacher actually do...he'll probably know who i am but oh well....mr.t is the best physics teacher/ leprechaun on steroids ...you'll c wat i mean when u have him, if u pass his class u'll get fives ..i got low C and got double 5
all the right forces in all the wrong places..! what a great class. but i must admit, some of the material was waaaayy above my reach. watch out for that capacitance test..........
I LOVE Mr. Thompson. He is simply awesome! He teaches in a way that you can understand, he is ALWAYS happy to help you, and he expects a lot from all of his students. Put the effort in and you can survive.
AP physics is hard but he makes it a little more interesting. Good teacher and very charismatic
AWESOME TEACHER. makes class REALLY fun and makes AP Physics such a great class. It's AP Physics so it's not easy, but he does a great job teaching and explaining as well as always open for questions.
"we're not done with physics... we'll be learnin' 'til the world stops turnin'... we're not done with physics... yeahhh". What a great class.
this teacher LOVES physics and really wants you to love it too. his enthusiasm is inspiring and admirable. you have to do a lot of work outside of class - he expects it of you - and then to ask questions in class which he will answer very thoroughly and clearly. the students that are the most active and outgoing probably get the most out of his class. and he's so funny and COOL
The best science teacher in the whole school. Perhaps even the best teacher overrall in the whole school. He's not just a teacher, he's a friend. Great personality and funny as hell! This guy knows how to teach physics. A great teacher.
Really awesome person, but I taught myself what I know about physics. I think he knows the material but just can't teach it.
Honestly i think he is by far the most overrated teacher at Wootton. I pretty much taught myself everything I know from 1st semster physics out of the textbook. He never finishes problems/examples in class after starting them causing us to linger on how to actually finish the problem. I really don't know how I got an A in this class.
Coolest teacher in the world. Literaly, no joke or expression,coolest teacher in the world.Doesn't make it easy he forces us to know everything bout Phyisics whether it is on test
He had an unfocused approach and difficult to understand, humor was way off, but the guy loved physics.
the koolest physics teacher ever lived!!! MR. THOMPSON, YOU ROCK!!!!!
after having mr. patt i realized that thompson isnt so great at teaching...he's really funny and has interesting lesson plans...but patt teaches much better
how can anyone possibly call him a teacher? I have not learned one thing from him
Coolest teacher ever. Very smart, mistakes are very rare, very good speaking, and examples. Raps, plays bball, makes cool school commercials....
He is not as clear as patt. try to explain getting a 97% with patt (#1 in class) then a low B (#15 in class) with thompson? He is cool but patt is FAR better.
THE coolest Physics Dude. I must admit he is a genius, and knows a lot of stuff about EVERYTHING. Newton Burger please?
Hes the funniest teacher ever..i had a good time in his class...he really wants his students to do well..he enjoys physics a little too much?
Sometimes his lessons weren't as clear as Patt's, but he is more than willing to help clarify things. Great teacher with an amazing personality- you can't lose!
best teacher ever! very helpful and very friendly. so much better and more fair than Patt.
Keeps the class very very interesting with stories and references to pop culture! Great personality and plenty of humor to make even Newton's Laws fun!
great teacher, got 100% in his class with ease and learned a heck of a lot
A great teacher. Test's are a bit long. . . hey- but who else is willing to breakdance in a leprekan (spelling?) suit in front of the whole school?
AWESOME teacher, makes physics funny and interesting. I had a C last semester with Patt, I have an A this semester with Thompson, what does that say?
Extremely knowledgable man. Everything from physics to tv shows to Notre Dame. Great teacher, I learned a lot in a funny and quite entertaining way. ND...overrated
very very cool man hes the man in school everyone likes him
Good teacher, even better rapper. Knowlegable on the Simpsons, Seinfeld and 80's movies.
