Pretty much everyone in his AP Physics class gets 5's. I got a 5, and I was not even in calculus.
Mr. Bixel is a cool cat. One time we had this presentation where he blew "floo" powder into a fire. I don't really think it was "floo" powder if you know what I mean. Ha-Ha cool dude lol.
Great teacher. Has a great sense of humer and really gets to know us well. Works harder than any teacher I have ever had to help students learn.
Great teacher who really cares that we learn. I had him as a freshmen and now I am a junior. My science classes since Bixel's class have been easy for me, but hard for people who skipped physical science.
Mr. Bixel is a great teacher for juniors and seniors but terrible for sophomores and freshmen.
great dude. I live for this class. He's a mess but I love him.
I am a freshman and every time I raise my hand he totally ignores me there are times when he looks at me and just completely ignores me. He uses a website to teach us which is poorly set up but easy to use. Unlike other teachers if you answer a question right or something he doesn't say "exactly" "good" "correct", he just mumbles "okay" and he kind of makes me feel bad when he doesn't answer my question or purposely ignores me. IT IS SO HARD TO GET HIM TO TALK TO YOU. AND HELP YOU.
He's a great teacher who always helps his students. I'm a bit lazy and Because of his fun teaching style i did fairly well. Would recommend him no doubt!
Cool guy with a good taste in music helps out his students and is willing to answer questions. All around nice guy, can take constructive criticism and has a sick website that helps out students that they can access anytime.
Awesome teacher. Can't believe someone is crying about significant figures. You are going to need to know them when you get to chemistry. And if you don't like the music, have the balls to ask if he would play something you like.
I think he's a great teacher and has a fun class!
He is a good teacher and Has a very fun class
Mr. Bixel's class was awesome last year. Our fifth period had so much fun and it's clear that Mr. Bixel loves what he does. His website is a fantastic resource that will make or break your grade, if you don't use it then you're screwed. But if you do your homework and watch all the videos he posts then you'll be good to go! I found the exams to be hard, but still did really well. The key to Mr. Bixel's class is preparation! You'll have a really fun year if you have him.
WORST TEACHER EVER. Literally does not teach you anything. I had to teach myself everything using his stupid website. His practice quizzes are confusing and stupid. He assigns textbook homework he can't even explain himself and uses other teachers' lectures on Youtube to teach for him. He thinks he is hilarious and the smartest person ever, and he is neither of those. Dreaded going to that class every day. If you have him, GOOD LUCK.
Possibly the best teacher ever, unless you are lazy. Then you should drop as fast as you can.
We just finished studying ap mechainics calculus faster than any other school in the state. We all took a full old AP test and out of 38 people, 25 got 5's and 5 got 4's. I feel really well prepared for the exam.
I'm in college and tested out of a physics course because I got a 4 on the A.P. exam. I feel like I'm better prepared than the other's in my class. Bixel was hard, worth it. Not sure what the person on 10/29 was talking about. Bixel absolutely knows physics. Better than my college professor. And I think more than 50% of the people in my class got 4's or 5's on the exam, so the person on 10/29 is lying. If you don't like hard work, you shouldn't have signed up for the class.
The people here who got fives are a major exception. I spoke to Mr. Bixel myself about the AP scores, and only a small percentage got above a 3. He's not a good teacher. He's a great guy, but not a good teacher.
I got two 5's on the AP physics tests after taking Bixel's class.
The person below must be high. I did what Bixel said and got a 5 on the Mechanics exam and a 4 on the E and M, and Bix understands A.P. physics better than anyone. They probably didn't do their homework and now are just crying about getting a 1.
He's so awesome, perfect science teacher for any type of learner
I dont and do like Bixel, at least he trys to teach to our generation, and I do like the moodle site. He has the bells and whistles of a cool teacher- but his material needs to be overhauled.
If you get him as your teacher, all I have to say is Good Luck... I failed that class. Mr.B is a really nice person and all but he wasn't that great of a teacher. Plus all the homework is on moodle, which hardly ever works. It's just really frustrating. I thought that class was impossible!
amazing teachers and one of my favorites. Should get a pay raise
Really good teacher. One of my best ones.
Awsome teacher! Tells the funniest stories ever. Helped me a lot in science, and I didn't used to like science much.
Its very clear what you have to do every day in Bixel's class. Hes pretty funny too. He was easy to find when you needed help too.
Grate teacher. somebody below said it was bad that he calls on people at random and waits for you to answer. What is wrong with that? It sounds like they werent paying attention! That is there fau
Mr. Bixel is really good at explaining stuff. He holds us responsible for actually doing the work to, and he tells the best stories.
Not a good teacher at all. Would randomly call on people and wait till they gave some response even if they didn't know the answer. I was always so confused in his class and he would just tell us to l
Excellent teacher and he makes science easy. Some kids who don't like to do any work at all don't like his class, but its their fault.
Some of the things in class are pretty hard like sig figs and stuff, but Bixel makes it easy and you can actualy find him to get help.
Mr. Bixel is so nice. He explains stuff well and makes science really fun, and I used to hate science.
Super fun first day of class!!! Lots of demonstrations!
The only people who complain about this class are the ones who don't like to do anything.
Great teacher. I learned a lot, but kids who don't want to do any work and are basically lazy, won't like this class.
Excellent teacher who made me work hard. He helped me a lot during lunch and office hours.
Curt Bixel Bixel Bixel, What can I say! Awesome teacher, awesome year. You rule!
Makes us work hard. Its a pretty hard class, but we learn a lot. He is pretty funny too.
He is so much fun and you learn a lot. If you keep up with your work, pay attention, and study is class flies by.
if you do the work you're supposed to, the class isn't bad. I had him for physics. He makes it fun!
mr. bixel is so nice! & lots of extra credits =P u think u dont learn anythin from his class, but u actually do learn stuffs. its better than sitting there & taking notes.
i have learned the most ive ever learned in science, i thought i was in over my head when i signed up phys. sci. S but he is amazingly easy to understand
Mr. Bixel is by far the best teacher in the WORLD!!!! He actually makes science fun. If u dont have him, switch to get him.
Bixel is a HORRID teacher, not in that he doesn't know his stuff, you basically don't learn anything in the class. Other than that he is the greatest man alive
Mr. Bixel is the best Science Teacher I've ever had. He makes me look forward to Science.
Hands Down Best Teacher i've ever had, That and Lampe ^_^
bix is my hero! he did cool projects that none of the other science classes did. and he's funny!
Who ever said bixel sux, u suck! Bixel is the best teachR i have ever had & he is dedicated 2hisjob i lovehim! Greatcoach & has helped me more ican helpmyself!
Bix rox! the reason he doesn't help that much is because the want you to figure problems out for yourself. plus, he's got that teacher award thing, so he knows what he's doing. he just needs to learn to ease up on cats... they're not that bad:)
A cool teacher and a great guy. The activities we did were absolutely awesome.
Sometimes a frustrating soccer coach, but can't question the dedication. Loves the game, standup guy
Bixel is a great guy, his class was extremly enjoyable.
Bixel is the best, ask him a question and he will clarify everything with a small demonstration with a steel ball and ramp
Bixel rocks he is the best science teacher and I hope I'll get him in future science classes. He makes the best projects... Cardboard Boats!!!!
dude bixel your the man funny guy, but soome times you jsut need to slow down and start from the beginning
