Fred Doak is a very smart and knowledgable man there is no doubt about that. But he is also by far then worst teacher I've ever had. I had him for astronomy and we rarely ever talked about it the whole year. In class he would either tell us stories or we would watch random movies/videos about planets or dinosaurs. He gives tests that are impossible because he doesn't prepare anyone for them whatsoever
His tests are impossible, he talks all the time and doesn't teach anything but calculations which are irrelevant towards the tests.
Mr. Doak is very smart and interesting, but he really isn't that good of a teacher. He doesn't stay on topic, and often goes on random rants and tangents about irrelevant subjects.
Really off-topic but if you have even one ounce of responsibility then you can remember to do the assignments on your own. Plus there's always greenhouse for extracredit!
This guy has a lot of knowledge, but sometimes allows himself to get a little sidetracked during class discussions and he strays well off of the topic.
