Mr. Daquila really lays out the entire year on a sheet of paper. Really follows the textbook closely. I admire the speed at which he wheels to my table when I need help. Mr. Daquila has a remarkable mastery of moving in that chair. Clearly communicates what is on exams through extensive use of bullets. Prides himself on preparing you for college classes, and this is indeed true.

I didn't take any classes with him so I cant speak on that, but I saw him a lot in the math lab for help and he was very understanding and helpful, even when I didn't understand very basic concepts.

His Calc 3 class is ridiculously easy...because he doesn't know the material himself. That being said, you have to teach yourself pretty much everything by textbook and youtube videos. He didn't go up to the board more than 3 times in the entire year. He makes the tests very easy, though.

It may be true that he offends some people, and that his teaching style is not what most prefer. However, I would like to remind everyone that every one has hard times that they go through and that he would not be hired as the AP Calc teacher if he were really that inadequate. Furthermore, he is genuinely nice to everyone in the class.

Did not make an effort to teach his class. This teacher seems to not try to fix his problems even though they are evident. Did not respond to questions and the only reason there were a large number of passing grades on the AP exam was because he made the students do decades worth of past AP exams in the two months leading up to the exam. No learning done. Awful attitude and worst I have ever seen.

Does not teach during class period. Expects students to ask and know what to ask, then he'll teach. But that is a lot to ask in high school. Pays a lot of attention to the pretty girls. Very uncomfortable.

Mr daquila is an interesting teacher. All he does in class is eat sloppy joes and grades papers. I don't know if I dislike him or I don't care because when he teaches, he is probably one of the best teachers ever. But he teaches once a month which is bad for individual tests and ap exams. Good luck. DOn't talk about grades either.

I actually enjoyed his teaching style for AP Calculus BC. Many students didn't seem to like having to try and learn the information on their own, but it wasn't bad at all considering he would answer any questions the next day, and would also address any important aspects that we needed to know. He rarely seemed angered by students not finishing homework as long as they attempted the majority of it. Even though he may be a bit different than the typical teacher, he still gets his points across

I always struggled between hating him and thinking he was hilarious. In the end, he doesn't teach. What bothers me is that he embraces that. But I will say he's setting you up for a college style calc course. Too bad you can't choose what teachers you have. Good Luck...you'll need it!

He is hard to get along with for most people, but I absolutely respect him and grew to really like him over the year. You can honestly go to him for anything, even if he makes fun of you a lot.

Very lazy. Doesn't teach at all. Uses old AP tests to teach. It is extremely easy to get an A if he likes you. I honestly don't feel like I know anything about calculus.

gives tests about a month after material is gone over, delays the tests, and tries to be funny. it's pretty hard not to get an A or B b/c he curves and gives extre credit. needs to calm down about stuff, though.

We could learn the material so much better if Daquila managed to stay on topic more than 5 minutes.
