I had Mr. Matthews for AP Physics. I can't really blame him because he just started teaching AP Physics and AP Physics itself is a new curriculum, but most labs were very confusing and not very insightful and his lectures are very boring. I don't think he prepared us enough for the AP exam, nonetheless, he still tried his best. Hopefully a year or two from now, he might become a better AP Physics teacher.

He's a really fair teacher. A lot of people don't think he is just because he could be strict at times but he's really helpful and makes sure you understand. Plus, he always has interesting labs.

He is a pretty good teacher but a really good guy. Learning by inquiry sucks though, I have to say.

He's a good teacher but he does rush through things sometimes and he does have a bad temper. But, he's a nice guy.

goes through things too fast, expects too much too soon, compares our class to other classes, and occassionally loses his temper
