Mr. Luk is a fun teacher, he actually teaches the material but he favors his some of his students obviously and he likes to talk about his dogs and gives the most random participation points ever. Other then that he is a good teacher. Just don't get on his bad side

if you want an A you have to participate. it counts quite a lot. simply getting all As on assignments will not guarantee you a good grade. learned from mistake.

Hes an alright teacher. He goes off topic often and has a very poor grading system. He favors students which is very obvious. His tests are graded horribly. He can sometimes teach and he assigns homework before he teaches the lesson which is frustrating.

Mr. Luk is a decent teacher. He is pretty friendly and likes to tell interesting stories as well as making jokes. He teaches alright. He does give you a substantial amount of homework and his quizzes/tests can be somewhat challenging at times. What I don't like about his class is his "A" answer participation system. It can be hard getting enough"A" answers to get a good grade on participation.

I believe that Mr. Luk is a funny teacher because he always crack random jokes in class, however, he gives out assignments before he teaches the lesson, and when he does teaches the lesson, he always get off track, which makes learning in his class very hard. I guess he is a pretty straightforward teacher though.

Mr luk is a great teacher and tells lots of stories in class. He gets off topic a lot but that may be a reason why some think he might not teach. Everyday he ask if you need help from the homework and if you don't than that's pretty much your lost. So don't even try saying that he's a bad teacher and doesn't teach because he's a really good teacher.

Mr. Luk is a good teacher just that you need to see where he is coming form, he may joke around and mess with his students(troll them make fun of them or just like bully em but it is still funny) Everyone on here needs to calm down and change your perspective on him. If you do your home work you will understand how to do the problems on the test and quiz. He usually will give a quiz/test after 4 section. His test is like half the chapter, his quiz first part.

THE MAIN REASON Y EVERYONE IN CLASS IS UPSET WITH HIM IS MAINLY BECUZ OF HIS TEACHING.HE HAS SOMETHING CALLED A ANSWERS, WHICH COUNTS AS A PARTICIP ATION GRADE FOR ALL THE STUDENTS. EACH STUDENT NEEDS AT LEAST 25 A ANSWERS TO GET AN A IN THE PARTIC IPATION GRADE. IF EACH STUDENT NEEDS TO GET 25 A ANSWERS AND THERE R EXACTLY 36 STUDENTS IN HIS CLASS,(25X36=900),HE NEEDS TO ASK 900 QUESTIONS IN WITHIN A QUARTER!(9 IN A QUARTER).EACH WEEK HE WILL BE ASKING 100 QUESTIONS WHICH MEAN(MON-FRI)20q'S/DAY

He also gives this thing called A-answer sheet. You need at least 25-30 particip.ation to get an A within a quarter. That is about 9 weeks of school. As a result, there is no way everyone in the class can get an A on the particip.ation sheet, because there are 30+ students in the class and he wont be calling on every single one of them. He would be calling the ones that he favors. in addition, he grade tests hard. And whatever he teaches does not relate to what you are suppose to be learning.

i wouldnt say he is bad,however, he does not teach. Like for now, we have common core and he is teaching us algebra 2.In addition, it makes us guess words a lot,and that word has to be the word that he is looking for.For example, lets say he is looking for the word "slope",and everyone raises their hand, he calls on someone and they say "rate of change." then he would say its wrong.As a result,i dont think he is a great teacher due to the fact of how he teaches.He also makes fun of people.

Mr. Luk is funny, he tells us jokes. He also compares geometry to things that happen in real life, which helps us understand the topic more. At times we get off-topic, but at the end of the day we know what we're doing. Everyday he lets us ask questions on our homework and goes over it with us. Everyday when the bell for 5th period rings, I always see people walk out of his classroom. I suppose they eat their lunch in their. It just means that Mr. Luk's a really cool teacher that students admire

He is a teacher who will run you down and bother you if you don't do your homework. He doesn't give that much homework, it is the least of all the other math teachers.
