I was not good at math until I took his class. Majoring in astrophysics now. Enough said.
He's a really smart guy, easy to get a long with and loves his job. Sometimes his teaching isn't crystal clear and you get home to do the work and you have no idea what is going on. He's a fair grader and can help you if you approach him after class. I don't have a problem taking his classes year after year going from Pre-Calc to Multivariable.
This class is a joke, essentially you pay with your grade with "fluff" or expo markers. He uses the leverage that he can write "amazing letters of rec" so you'll continue to take his classes. I doubt he can write amazing letters if he can't even spell "separate." He's basically only available in the morning so if you need help and you have a 0 period, good luck to you! He's too worried about his penmanship and color scheme on the board to teach well. He may know calculus, but he can't teach it.
Straight up one awsome teacher. If you cannot understand his lessons you where absent or you are an inanimate object. He is so easy to understand. His test are not too difficult but if you do your homework you should be fine. Trust me I learned the hard way. Home work is only 15% of your grade and yet if you don't do it you will fail. Funny guy ,easy to get along with,
I'm in my second year in college as a Mechanical Engineer. At the time I though Oravets was super hard, but you will thank him once you start college. Really gave me a good foundation.
I really didnt like him, he was a good techer, but can give a b or c for no reason, its because he doesnt like you.
The Best Math Teacher Ever. He's amazing at teaching. If you don't learn from his class, it's your own fault. Great at making math understandable. He really wants to help out others. Funny and cool 2.
He actually makes math interesting. He is engaging and explains things in a clearer and easier-to-understand way than any other teacher I have. Best. Math teacher. Ever.
His class is amazing. Somehow he makes math interesting enough to stop playing calculator games. And he lectures with amazing clarity. Definitely the best math teacher I've had.
great but difficult class. takes a lot of hard work. He is also entertaining, he isn't boring at all. he is the best math teacher i had so far.....
Best math teacher I have ever had and probably will ever have!!! Clear, EXTREMELY dedicated, and super helpful. Awesome teacher!!!
Clear, helpful, but difficult class. The only worthwhile Math teacher.
oravets is probably the best teacher on poly's campus. he knows the material and makes it easy to understand. i recommend him for any level of math.
His tests are unfair, making everything as hard as possible. He knows calculus so well that he can't teach it to others.
Best Math Teacher Ever... the perfect record says so
i had oravets for calc bc this year, and he really turned me on to math. i am usually a writing person, but he made math understandable and fun. go o!
good teaching abilities but he does not apply himself-doctor j
Best Math teacher ever. Oh, how I miss your teaching Mr. O!
I have him this year for Calculus BC and in my opinion he is the best math teacher i have ever had.
Mr. Oravets came into my class to teach us the Unit Circle, he taught it to us better than any other teacher I had.
He is the greatest teacher of all time . He makes everything make sense. Plus he has the best handwriting . oh yea GO LAKERS!!! ~ his fav. team
By far the best math teacher on campus. He is so organized! He doesn't just give you a formula and expect you to understand, he explains how it works!
Very good teacher, explains everything, always willing to help
