He was fun. Love this guy. He wasn't great when you needed help, but he was always trying to keep the mood light. His jokes were so bad they were good. I still laugh about it. If you care about your grade and work hard, you can easily get an A. Also, you have respect.
Away we go, Kokomo!

Super easy if you take notes and do the homework. If you don't pay attention, the tests will be hard but honestly just DO WHAT YOU ARE TOLD AND YOU WILL BE FINE.

To this day I still love Mr. Maxey! I graduated in 2002 and Dan Maxey is awesome. If you don't like him it is because you don't have a sense of humor. Lighten up and LISTEN! Oscar Had A Heap Of Apples. Mr. Maxey rocks!

Oh my god! This man makes me furious!!! If you have him, switch teachers immediately! I promise this class will not benefit you in any way. It will probably take a few years off of your life span because of all the pent up anger.

Why hasn't this guy been fired yet? I've seen people in their 30's who still remember this guy as a horrible teacher. He literally takes notes ans expects you to learn everything.

He doesn't teach ANYTHING. He honestly stands in front of the class telling jokes. Or does problems in front of you, expecting you to learn them!

He's interesting, but picky and unpredictable. Your largest grade at the end of the semester next to your final test is based almost entirely on how much he likes you, by extent determining how picky

The guy was interesting to say the least, but I got an A in his class and understood everything he taught me so he couldn't have been a bad teacher. The whole notebook shake thing though was annoying

I had Mr. Maxey almost 20 years ago and my friends and I STILL talk about him. He was annoying when I was 17 but I did get my only ever math A in his Trig class.

He's a pretty good teacher... but I'm pretty sure he's at least half robot. He can be a cool guy, but is without reason, and will randomly take off points. Learn to shut your mouth and you'll be okay.

He favors girls. If you get math, then you'll get his class. On the other hand, if you don't get it, he's hit and miss with clearly getting the point across.

Maxey is a true character. He is actually a very good teacher although his grading is completely unfair. Oh, and I love math jokes.

I had Mr. Maxey in the 80's and became a math teacher because of his advice! Thanks. "I see said the blind man, as he picked up his hammer and saw"

His notebook thing was just giveaway points. The overhead comic strip was hysterical simply because it was so crude. Also annoying.

I did learn in the class, but bad grading policy. How can a teacher base a notebook score on the margin width & if papers fall out of it when you shake it?
