Oct 27, 2013 He pushes you without much support. Rushes through many of his lessons, if he is teaching at all. Calc BC is rarely taught, AB is always lectured. Always assumes that the entire class can move at the pace of the smartest student, often leaving many behind. Going in for help isn't the most useful, as he is often distracted or not there. Openly argues that his students should only take and focus on AP Calc and no other AP class. Also, getting a 5 on the AP test does NOT make up for the B or C Flag Rating

Jul 10, 2013 Yes, he's there all the time but he tells too many stories instead of helping. That's great except for when you aren't doing well. Flag Rating

Jul 09, 2012 Mr. Dodson rushes through calc material far too quickly and leaves many confused. He pushes students way beyond the point that he actually needs to. So many come in for help that it's nearly impossible to get your questions answered. I've never spent so much time putting effort into a class, and I've never received such a low grade (my first C). I did get a 5 on the AP exam though, and I suppose that's all that mattered. The material really wasn't that hard; Dodson just made it hard to keep up. Flag Rating

Jul 11, 2011 He will brainwash you into loving him. AP Calculus will take over your life. He makes a lot of puns and tells the best stories. It's hard to get help from him though. Flag Rating

Dec 21, 2008 Mr. Dodson is a very cool and funny guy, and entertaining during class. But, he's a very bad teacher! He wouldn't need to help so many students after class if he didn't teach way too fast! Flag Rating

Mar 02, 2004 He pretends the material is really easy and tells us we'll understand. Sometimes we don't but he genuinely believes we have an innate love for math in our DNA. Flag Rating
