He gives quizzes every week which are usually straight forward questions. Make sure to always hand in your homework in on time and make sure your answers are right. I recommend writing everything down because you will need good notes to study from. He does seem to favor certain students which was very unfair.
The best number 1
This is the REAL Andrew Ng from class 722. I didn't write the comment below. I never had Dr. Goodkin, so I will rate him a 4 out of 5.
Be quiet Andrew you didn't even have him.... Anyways, I think that he is a VERY good teacher, he has AMAZING power points, but can be a little self obsessed and shows a bit of favoritism, but gives everyone a chance. Has great stories, but he tells them so that they are related to the lesson. Teaches in a somewhat unorthodox way and hates using the textbook, as he thinks that it is not that accurate. He is VERY knowledgable and has a sense of humor. All in all, you will learn a lot in his class
He is a great teacher and he is funny! I have him write now and he tells stories that link to science that will help students learn in an easier way! - kristen
he was helpfull, uses engrade and everyone in the class listens to him because he says he could be strict sometimes. he gives very challenging extra credits too.
Goodkin is so far the best science teacher I've ever had. Honestly, I've never done so well in science before i came to his class. He makes things easy to understand and has the most awesome powerpoints. And even though he might be telling stories all the time, they relate to science in a way that we CAN understand. But you gotta agree, better than baez, gentile, ford and speziale HANDS DOWN.
He does nothing in class except doing story time. He also loses ur hw, but his tests are a breeze. GL.
the absolute best teacher ever. seriously dr goodkin was the most helpful teacher ever. because of his outstanding effort he got me the good benefits in science & everything and he taught great.
Though he was a nice guy I didn't like his teaching methods. I guess Jr. High didn't matter anyways so stay cool. I know you're reading this dude.
Goodkin has made a huge impact in my life.When ever Goodkin is talking,im always interested.With a goodkin line between humor and education,and a goodkin learning environment,hes the perfect teacher
BEST SCIENCE TEACHER EVER> I KNOW WHAT I KNOW IN SCIENCE BECAUSE OF HIM.
He's not the science teacher anymore... he's the 7th grade dean... HE GIVES OUT DETENTNTION WAY TOO EASILY!!
to this day im a senior in high school now... 4 years later hes the one i remember most from jhs and has helped me the most with science in hs.... it was great hes multitalented man.... one of the best i say.. despite the nasty rumors....

I used to hate him so much at the Beginning of the year but now he is my favorite teacher.I love Science now and I love his class.He is funny and nice.
Dr. Goodkin is very cool. He's one of the best teachers in this school. I totally get science now. HIs class is funny. YOU RULE!!

he's a great teacher. he knows what he's teaching- he makes everything so clear and students actually learn in his class but he's not the best PERSON. mayb that's y he's not.......
The only way u won't like him is if either ur Flunking his class or u don't have him...
Freshman in Stuy now, used to be in 804 last year. Dr. G. rocks your socks...and still the best, coolest science teacher ever. Wish I still have him...
dr goodkin is a good teacher, i guess. his jokes are lame but atleast i'm learning something this year.
Dr. goodkin is a great teacher but s/t he make students freak out and oh yea all you vegitarians out there be careful "tyana"??? yeah rite
good teacher but tries to hard to score popularity points with students
Not such a bad teacher. Fun class (at least when I had him last year), and he's pretty funny. Who doesn't like Goodkin?
Best teacher...fun, easy tests, good teacher, treats us like REAL PEOPLE
Dr.G is a really down to earth teacher and knows how to reach kids. He is a really good person to talk if you have a problem. I am truly thankfull to have him.

BEST EVER!!!!NUF SAID. THE MAN IS A GENIOUS! FUNNY, GREAT TEACHER AND ALL AROUND NICE GUY. SICK TEACHER!
i was their when his parents passed away, very sad. he was depressed for the longest time.... AOL screen name is "DR GOODKIN"
let's put it this way, "professional magicians" shouldnt be science teachers... they can be very manipulative, if you know what i mean
Omigod...the test was mad EZ. It was everyhting you taut us all year!! UR the best!!!!
Dr. u did a great job teaching us! eveything u said was on the test well most of it was on the multiple choice! Thanx
i think Dr.G is a great teacher but he has to come bak in making science fun again!
The worst teacher ever. He only cares about his favorite students. He is also a lair and crys everyday
stop saying bad things about Dr. Goodkin! He's cool! -This is from Annoying Boy from 8-4
THE MOST BORING TEACHER IN THE UNIVERSE, AND ALSO ASKED THE DRAMA TEACHER OUT AND SHE SAID NO / HAHA DR GOODKIN TRY SOMEONE ELSE.
his class is so much fun and we learn a lot and he really cares.
hes soo funni n he has an interesting and entertaining way of teaching us instead of bein borin like othr teachers and i like his class.
I LOVE DR GOODKIN- hes a really great science teacher, and i dont understand y ppl say he makes stuff up, he doesnt need us to believe him, y would he make stuff up
The BEST teacher ever, stop saying bad things about him!!!
PEOPLE STOP SAYING BAD THINGS ABOUT HIM,WHICH ARE NOT TURE!!!!! (YOUR MAKING HIM FEEL BAD) :'(
Dr. Goodkin is a cool teacher and is even nice enough to stay after school to teach us 7th grade chemistry. I believe the stories he tells.
Hes the best, dont worry about the other guys dr. g... ur great.
Corny jokes.....easy magic tricks.....easy tests.....good teaching method, but the corny jokes and fake stories have to go. Plus, he brags about his 7 jobs and how he doesn't sleep...too much...Also, he doesn't really have 7 jobs & he sleeps more than I.
now,ppl arent too fond of him either, i'm not giving any names, but it's true--but me, i really didnt like him from the very beginning, he kept bragging about his 7 jobs, his sense of humor just got annoying, there's so much more to say-not enough room
hes the man, hes funny, cool, and he does magic. you cant mess wit that
804 says Goodkin is da bomb!!! whoo hoo da best teacher on earth!
dr. goodkin is the best he makes everything understanable thanx dr. g
the best teacher, cool stories and does cool magic tricks
He's the best science teacher I've ever had, the magic tricks are a plus.the
He is one of da best sci teachers I eva had. He also does magic tricks
OMG,DR GOODKIN IS AWSOME!!! BEST TEACHER IN THE UNIVERSE
Dr.Goodkin is SUPER cool. Even if he does make fun of me. heheh
