His physics class was fun during my freshman year. His off-topic convos were interesting and he connected with his students. Lessons are easy if you know algebra. Chill class.

His foolish and weak attempts to compare volume and the amount of oxygen inside a child's lungs while his mother strangles him are futile. In other words; bad analogies and unclear.

Mr. Tomasco is really funny with his puns. He makes everything look easy. He only teachers AP class as i know of so you can definitely talk about intelectual subjects and colleges with him.

Great class to take. Its incrediably easy to slack off in his class (AP), however, don't, or try not to. Unless you know it, you need to ask for help for the A.
