I had him for Algebra 2 and PreCalc, he is really easy going if you know your stuff. Tests make up your grade mostly (90% tests, 5% HW, 5% Tutoring). If you do well on his tests, you can pass the class without doing any homework (not recommended). Too bad he is retiring next year (2016).

I would say he's really hard because his tests are 90% of your grade and I can't understand his lessons really well and he gives short notes and I don't get my homework, this is ridiculous

Mr. Johnson managed to become the only math teacher whom it seemed that the entire class ended up despising him, most of us for the same reason: He can't teach. He knows the subject extremely well, but he assumed we all did, too. I once looked at his gradebook for the class, and calculated the average test scores (By the way, tests are literally 95% of your grade). You know what the average test score among the whole class was? About 35%. Horrible teacher, get a transfer if you get him.

The BEST math teacher I've EVER had, just do his homework and you'll be guaranteed a D-. He's so helpful and understanding, he helps kids outside of the classroom and understands what's up. Pretty awesome dude, I get to have him twice though, he's retiring very soon.. Great teacher!

I had him this year. In my opinion, he is a great teacher. His tests are rather difficult, but if you do the reviews he gives you, then you will most certainly get an A. He is hilarious and wastes A LOT of class time. Definitely one of my favorite classes.
P.S. He is also very serious when it comes to cheating, he checks your graphing calculator and lined papers!!!

Good teacher, cares for his students. He explains things really clearly and is really helpful, so ask questions if you don't understand. His tests are kinda hard, so study. He wastes alot of classtime

He has a no "F" policy. just do your work and get to class on time. so the lowest grade you can get in his class is a D-. If you do good on tests you'll finish that class with A's.

Funny teacher, expects you to understand and learn. Class is hard, no doubt about that, but you'll get through if you focus ALOT.

If youre the best math student then join the class, if youre the B or average C student then dont join the class youll just get an F or D and fail.

Decently helpful, not mean, somewhat strict, moderately easy work. He really loves science. He explains everything clearly and then more. easy to slack off in his class, his lectures are repeats

Well, I suppose he's very clear, since he's so loud. Loud enough to hear from adjacent classrooms. Sadly, most of what he says is about how useless we are and how we'll never amount to anything.

Johnson is a very good teacher .Yes his grading is 95% tests but they are multiple choice. He has a good reason for his grading scale go ask him about it. It's funny how he makes fun of the poor administration

I think he is probably THE best teacher at this school. Its like he knows everything. So far every question i have ever seen asked to him has been answered. Dont slack off and you'll be fine.

Funny and nice, but can't teach. Seriously. And his grading sucks. 95% is based on tests! And his tests are 10 questions, multiple choice. Get 7/10? Your grade is a 70. (C-)
