Had him last year. Very quirky guy; he would have weird habits like playing taking care of business before every class. Overall Mr. Newell is a fun guy and a great teacher.
One of my favorite teachers. JK Newell is a great guy and a fantastic teacher. Gotta love the supplement and those physics online videos. I wouldn't have traded him for anyone, but now he's gone :'(
He's a great teacher overall. Helped me get by the Physics SAT and the first semester of AP Physics (had him for CP).
Chill guy. You can tell he knows his stuff and he teaches pretty clearly. Homework is never checked, but you can't pass Physics Honors without doing it. If you need extra help, he is very helpful and
cant stand how he can never learn names. not a nice guy either
Physics honors will prepare you for college physics. he's not easy but he knows his stuff, and he's willing to help you succeed. do the homework
easy class, good teacher, but ask him what your name is and he probably still won't know. Even tho its marking period 4 already!!
LOVE class w ken, hes so funny and interesting hes a good teacher as long as u pay attention. I still dont udnerstand the grading policy but its not that hard. hes awsome!!
His tests and material are college-level; there's no question about it. It can be tough, but he teaches a sophistication of Physics that surpasses that of many other schools.
Really good teacher. The grading policy isn't wonderful, but I learn a lot and he's a nice guy.
We thought he was a convict from Maine (cauz he went by John) that found a physics notebook (notice all his sheets are in a womans handwriting). But hes a good guy and funny.
His grading policy is pretty unfair, and the small amount of questions on tests/quizzes make it difficult to get an A. But I he teaches well and is a nice guy.
BILL LUMBURG WAS A GREAT TEACHER...mmmm yeah you are gonna need to come in on saturday
His grading system is geared against the student; it's so obvious (scaling quizzes up from out of 10 points to out of 100). His class is boring.
I love Mr. Newell!! How could anyone not? He's always on time, very demanding, but very clear, and and never goes back on his words. He knows his stuff!
AP phsyics was tough but he prepares you well for the AP C test. The homework policy is strict but helps to force the information into your brain.
Well, atleast he was cool for extra help when i went to ask doc. fonarev, and he wasn't there
okay folks 'signments on the board. lets look at this situation: ets so a little V v. T graph w/ a VW Beetle going oh 30 meters per second...PER SECOND!!!
The only teacher i ever managed to get to sink down to my level.
terribly absentminded and doesn't really know that much, but still a nice guy
Hey Hey Heyyyyyyy. Heyyyyyy Biggg Guyyyyyyyy. Knows his stuff and is a nice guy when need be. Taught me well enough for AP test and college.
