I took him years ago. He was the best teacher I had at Mills. He had total command of the classroom. His lectures were interesting and his attitude was hilarious. He would rip on students who deserved it. (me included)

I didn't learn anything in the AP class. Quizzes and tests are hard, but he hardly ever gives you a grade less than a C. He likes to pick on people a lot. Mostly his AP students.

Fortgang was one of my favorite teachers at Mills. He runs his class like a military and anyone who fools around leaves the class sorry they did so. I wish I was more interested in school when he taught me. Great Teacher!

He spent 2 whole clas periods answering 2 questions. ironically, he never told us the answer. but he is cool. The pod thing is annoying, but i love the way he says "uhhh...uhhh" 3 times a sentence

May be academically one of the best teachers at Mills along with Jackson, people don't like him because he gives out fair grades, stop whining and grow up.

I was never any good at math, but Mr. Fortgang was still one of my favorites. Hilariously funny! He went out of his way to help me when I had problems (which was often).

He over prepares you for the open ended section but not the multiple choice of the ap test. Hes a good teacher but extremely unorganized. If you get an A, you really deserved it.

This teacher will stay on your mind. His knowledge and love of physics are priceless. The classes he teaches are too technical for many to enjoy, but TRY!

He's not that bad of a teacher. He just has really hard tests. Sure he can be discursive and ramble off about math teachers, but he's pretty good.

Sure he's funny, but is he a good teacher? Not really. He is so disorganized and goes over minute details in depth while ignoring concepts in class.

Definitely a difficult class....I got him for honors...and the class is entertaining as well...between the hat taking, and calling people borzorps and moroffs, it's defineitely a class worth taking.

He's hard, and confusing at times... But better than a lot of the other teachers. Also, I think he's fairly funny, and interesting... Having him as a teacher is definitely an experience you won't forget
