For Geometry, he is probably great. For Alg 2. not at all. he does not teach well. Our tests are cunulative and he never taught us the first chapters so 1/4 of your test is gone right there. He doesn't really teach, he just tell kids to go to the book. He even admits to not teaching some sections correctly but stilll takes out points. Also, he will not give partial credit at all. Most of all, it was sad when one of the freshmen knew more about math than he did.

I have him for Alg 2, and to be honest, he's not the best at teaching. He's very willing to answer questions, but you have to be proactive and ask. You have GOT to be very self- motivated and do & correct all your homework. A lot of my classmates get bad grades on his tests because they slack on homework and don't learn the concepts well.

Mr. Sugden is one of my favorite teachers. His class isn't too hard. Seriously guys, as long as you do the hw and listen during his daily lectures (he actually teaches - a rarity, so make sure to listen!) you'll do fine. I had a solid A in his class last year and I don't understand why everyone says he's so hard. His tests don't go far from the textbook and hw points (weekly hw checks) help you out. It's not a total easy A though, you still have to put in effort. But it's not impossible.

Teaches out of the book, but somehow makes everything a lot simpler. Nice guy, fun to talk to. Asking him about certain questions afterwards is helpful as well.

One of my favorite teachers. Teaches well, and is very social with the students. Many think that 2nd semester is harder but all that is needed is just practice with the B and C set problems.

WORST TEACHER you will ever get. Never teaches (year 2010-2011) and is absent at least 2 days per week. when he's actually here, he just gives classwork, never checks it, and never teaches.

Mr. Sugden is a very effective and funny teacher. He tries to use jokes to teach the material effectively. He is easy in the beginning, but gets harder through the year.
