I am a former student of Mr. Crowe's AP Stats class 2011, and now I'm getting my Master's degree in Statistics. His class establishes a strong foundation for you going into college. If you learn and remember the things he teaches, you will easily fly through a beginning level stats class or half of a higher level regression class in college. (At least one course in stats is often required for many majors.) He explains fairly difficult concepts in an easily understandable manner.
Mr. Crowe is probably one of my favorite math teachers at IHS. He is there is you need help and you can ask him anything. He is a kind person and is always there if you are struggling.
Great teacher BUT doesn't control the class.
I had him for Algebra 2 last semester and he is a pretty good teacher and definitely knows his stuff. He's really chill but sometimes this is a problem bc he has no control over the class. People shout out random things and are generally super loud and he does nothing about it. Sometimes he would be standing right next to me trying to explain something but I still couldn't hear him bc people were being so damn loud. He also kind of picks favorites but then again all teachers do.
For those of you who way that he doesn't care, it's because he understands that there's only one thing you must do in life. Everything else is optional but can potentially delay when you have to go through the mandatory.
I had Mr. Crowe for Algebra 2 my sophomore year and it wasn't my best math course at this school. Mr. Crowe is kind and cares about his students and intelligent yet he can not control his class at all. I liked at the time because that means I could show up late and he'd let me off with warnings and would let me use my phone but it meant I didn't get the grade I was hoping for. I take full responsibility but if you let kids do whatever they want, they won't choose to learn.
He could barely control the class. People were texting and yelling out random stuff when i was trying to learn. All he did to punish them was keep them in for a minute. He also taught the wrong thing to us so on the test most of us got 4 points off because he taught it wrong.
Coolest math teacher. Very proffesional at his job, always grades fairly and doesnt use harsh diciplinary actions. Had him before coll class
Finally, a competent teacher with lots of class. Great at teaching and knows his material. He'll basically answer any question you ask him. If he didn't, how would I know that his favorite food is foie gras and that his two little daughters are in the girl scouts?
Mr. Crowe is amazingly smart/ laid back. Some easy/really hard chapters. Each multiple question was worth 5 points out of 100, so be careful. Nobody complains about the class because it's so fun. You can do anything you want AFTER the lesson is over. You can also earn extra credit by beating him at games like 24, chess, and poker. Downside: fast class, chapter test every 1 or 2 weeks, and hard assignments called "special problems". Very easy to cheat/copy though, which is bad!
He was awesome! The down side about his chillness is that I couldn't hear when too many students talk when he's lecturing.
He's an amazing teacher. Super chill and really flexible about everything. Easy going and hella smart
He is laid back but he still is a great math teacher, sometimes too smart for his class to understand him though :/
Had him for AP stats and was a really good teacher. Got a 5 on the AP test without studying thanks to him :)
he is just kickass, and a great teacher. that elevates him to chuck norris status
He's really nice, for sure, and really smart...but sometimes I think he's too smart for us...his explanations aren't always the most helpful??
Mr. Crowe is really nice, but at times he could be a pushover. When these girls go to the bathroom for like an hour, he doesnt do anything. He should give them detentions or something. To me, he doesnt really explain good but he nice.
Mr. Crowe is probably the best math teacher i've had so far, having him as a teacher is something everyone would want on their schedule. He does his job very well.
i learned alot in this class, and it felt like an open period for me =)
One of my favorite teachers-- ever! He was lax and honest with us about everything. Drank lots of water. Great personality. Even though his voice is very deadpan at times, he's still a very interesting teacher. I admit that I fell asleep for the first two weeks of review, but that's because I wasn't used to him. After I got to know him better, then I realized that he had a very introverted personality and despite his lack of inflection-- he was a very expressive teacher. Down-to-earth and realistic! Fun.
one of the few math teachers who will always explain the same thing over and over, even if it is just for one person
tho the class is fairly simple, i still dont understand much of what he taught, the notes are a fine way to learn, but we might require more than that to digest
He's a pretty good teacher. The only problem is that he doesn't use his own materials, and often doesn't know what's on the tests.
he has a monotone voice and is super boring, but he's an alright teacher.
