It's really easy to slack off in this class since he doesn't usually catch people texting or sleeping. However, if you do choose to pay attention in class, you'll learn and understand stats so much more. It's a difficult A, but I was definitely prepared for the AP exam. Really nice guy, don't be afraid to ask questions, turkey.

HE IS THE BEST TEACHER I HAVE EVER HAD. Although I didn't receive a good grade from him (well i didn't work hard enough to earn a good grade) but he is the best teacher ever. At least he is chill with hw and attendance. I love him! He is super nice!!!

Mr. Chambers has an interesting sense of humor. He's pretty lenient in terms of being tardy and turning in hw late. He also lets you retake the test if you miss it on the day of. Tests are pretty tricky, it's important to actually READ the book. Word of advice, it helps to actually read the section before going to his class. Sometimes he just go straight to the problem without teaching it. He knows his material well but the way he words the question can lead you astray.

easy and you can actually learn in there. he's very nice, and very patient, so if you're not the smartest person ever, and you ask a lot of question, he will still be very patient w/ you and make sure that you get it. he also gives extra-credit quiz!

Mr. Chambers is really nice and he doesn't mind answering questions, in fact he likes it. Don't talk during class, don't ask him how to do odd numbered problems until you have done the homework, and most importantly StUDY! you can't not study

easy homework, just do them, doesnt even have to have correct answers. Tests are hard and must study. He sometimes decides to retest on the things from the previous chapter if that problem was missed by a lot of people, so you should learn a missed problem as soon as possible. Willing to teach and help, but not very clear in his lectures. Sometimes skips steps.

nice good teacher. genuinely cares about students. if you're bad at math to begin with, you'll do poorly following him in lecture. easy B, work for the A, but you might get a C if you slack off.

good. hard sometimes. he's a lot better for ap stat than he was for advanced algebra, but he was a good advanced algebra teacher too. in general, he moves at a fast pace so that he can go back later to review or even do bonus stuff.

mr. chambers is a really nice guy. he can be strict about pity points on a test sometimes though, but then again, we don't really deserve full score on a problem if we get it wrong... he's always willing to help you (can be busy at times though, he is the dept head) and try not to get on his bad side. even if you're on his bad side, he won't hurt your grade. his grading is objective, and you learn lots in his class. he goes ahead too!

he's really good. He cares about his students' grades (he wouldn't give any D's and he curved) and he's truly dedicated to helping his students learn. his class was rewarding in the morning, even though some of his tests were hard, and were kinda heavy on you for the rest of the day

he's cool... he does say "oh turkey" when he messes up on something and says "good morning" when someone yawns. but he's still cool cause as long as you do all of the hw (which is due during test/ quiz days) and u do ok on the tests, it pretty easy to get a B. oh yeah, u actually have to study and work if u want to get an A.

Brilliant. Knows his stuff, and teaches it well. Sometimes, it takes some effort to follow what he's saying in class, but if you do, it's extremely rewarding. He sometimes teaches stuff that's not in the cirriculum and is really advanced, but it helps you understand everything better. His tests can be hard sometimes, but it's not impossible to get an A as long as you study (sometimes from the book) His tests are definitely easier and more reasonable than Chan's. Must pay attention in class.

easy homework-- all from the book and he doesn't check if you did the homework until the test day. tests are ok if you honestly do the homework but there are some tricky questions. if you ask for help one-to-one you can get your question answered quickly but in a class setting he often goes a-rambling. overall, he is an OK teacher if you are willing to learn a lot and at a quick pace. you'll be way ahead of all the other accel math people

I think Chambers is a pretty good teacher, even though I ended up with a B. He covers a LOT of material, and we were 3 chapters ahead of everyone else by the time the semester ended. Ok tests, but always trick questions. Look over the test review questions in the book, because he sometimes uses those.

Covers more, and moves faster than most teachers at Lowell. Tests are easy because it's from the homework. Adds stuff that isn't in the book to make it easier.
