One of the worst teachers I've ever had. How is reading the textbook to us 'teaching?' Every difficult thing he teaches us, he justifies by saying it will be on Calculus AB math next year. Then he says things like, "Even if you have a B in Pre Calculus, you might not pass Calculus AB, guys." Stop discouraging people.
May be a hard class, but Koyfman is the best teacher to prepare you for classes ahead. Would highly recommend for future successful people.
um. i died. hes really caring and all but.. sometimes you cant understand him and honestly i get intimidated to even ask questions XD goodluck
He is definitely one of the hardest teachers in Rowland; but, he's a great teacher overall. He cares about all of his students, even the ones failing. The only real hard part are his tests as they have things that are not in the textbook. My best advice is to make sure you ask him for help, and also to remember equations and formulas from algebra 2.
Koyfman is easy. He doesnt really check homework. But to pass his test, you must do the hardest problems from EACH section and answers are in the back of the book. Dont be lazy. Remember, the more tests you fail the harder it is to bring your grade up.
this guy is russian. ezpz class
Hes FU*KI*n HARD good luck if u have him
Just say goodbye to urdream school. #sadlyfe
Get a tutor. My best advice is to get a tutor, ASAP. Before the year even starts, get a tutor. He's really great but his lectures are from the book. It's mostly just self study and lots, and lots, and lots of practice. Homework wise he doesn't care-- just turn something that looks like math and you'll get credit WHICH makes it even harder to stay motivated. His accent is heavy but his math is BEYOND GOD STATUS. He's intimidating but he loves his students (just try hard!). GOOD LUCK!!!!!
One of the best teachers you'll have in your life. Be prepared to work hard on your homework every night and to come in at lunch if you don't understand the material. This class will prepare you like no other teacher will.
More or less. Mr. Koyfman has a thing for rushing and not explaining in depth on subject matter.Maybe it's just me,but I had to look through the book more often times than supposed. What a pain...
Not very clear on his lectures. He s on words and I can hardly understand him. But he is encouraging to say the least. He is very helpful on a one-on-one question/answer basis so i say thumbs up.
Great teacher. Makes you work hard and actually UNDERSTAND calculus (as opposed to blatently memorizing formulas). He's always avaliable (lunch, nutrition, Saturdays)
I think hes a wonderful teacher, and makes sure we bring out the best of ourselves. In the beginning, i was failing his class. but if u do his hw and try and practice, the results are great !
He's an amazing teacher. He teaches you how to work hard and that you achieve anything that you want as long as you work for it. He is very inspirational.
very hard teacher, but he has a great personality. he loves teaching math with a passion and makes sure everyone understands. you have to do homework or youll fail. drops lowest section test each sem
Decently difficult, but he was a great teacher and I learned a LOT...
Mr. Koyfman is THE best math teacher on campus. He really inspires you to work harder and is always there for you if you need help EVEN ON SATURDAYS! Yes, with Mr. Kofyman, Calculus REALLY is the easy
Mr. Koyfman isn't difficult at all! He makes everything clear and doesn't give trick questions, You get to dance in his class!! Best teacher ever for the easiest learning ever.
CLASS: we dont get this problem... KOFYMAN: come on, its algebra 0.001 HAHAHA good times
He gave me a second chance at math, taught his class that grades do not matter, and to just have fun. Is Calculus hard? No, because Calculus is the easiest class. Thank you Mr. Koyfman.
Mr. Koyfman really helps you if you have trouble with math. he's really a good teacher, even though his problems is really hard
He grades hard, but is really only helping (in his own way)
Mr. Koyfman is absolutely amazing. He motivates you to learn. He is definitely the best math teacher and also has the best jokes! hahaha.. Homework doesn't really count in his class but you have to do all your homework in order to do well on his tests. His tests are very hard compared to other math classes but it's really worth having him as your teacher because he is really inspiring... it's rare to have a former nuclear physicist as your math teacher and you shouldn't miss the only chance!
As a former student, ongoing students should be prepared for a) the mathematical dances =] b) his thick Russian accent c) a lot of work. He is THE best math teacher on campus, absolutely brilliant and respectful. His class is extremely hard, homework means nothing, tests are everything. However, one must complete the homework to pass his tests, and believe me, it is a lot. He is very respectful and will teach you the meaning of "studying." His class WILL prepare you for Calculus in college.
Mr. Koyfman is the best!!! As long as you want to learn, he will always help you.
He is great for students who have strong math foundation. If you child is not, you are looking at "D" and "F" in his class. He tried his best but not easy to understand with heavy accent.
he may be hard but he's the best dang teacher i've EVER had
So what if he is hard to understand, he is the BEST teacher you will ever have. He teaches because he wants to. Mr. Koyfman could work for NASA.
He didn't let me take a test but all others could...i asked him why after class, he said he would just give me a D for that test...i still don't no y.he can't speak English~
He's the best!!! I learned so much in his class and he got me a 5 on my AP test.
He's one of my favorite teachers. He's extremely helpful when you have a question and he challenges his students
he's hard to understand and is a really hard teacher, but you get used to his accent. he's okay, i guess >.<
cool teacher! but super hard!!! i bombed his class like seriously.. calc. is so hard in his class.. good teacher though.. really helps.. if you can handle it!
he has a freakin Russian accent that is hard to understand but overall his class is ok and he's not that bad as a teacher

HE'S SMART... BUT...SOMETIMES I CAN'T UNDERSATND WHAT HE'S SAYING
Class is stressful for those of us that do not understand concepts well
Hes a brilliant man, i wish i could make sense of his english. very hard class.
He Rocks! Optical Illusions! He's tough, but fun. He likes to dance
