Olson's a very smart man--that's without a doubt. But he's a bad teacher, and if you really want to learn from him, go to him for extra help. He's a lot better one on one than in a classroom.
great teacher I graduated a few years ago and I still talk to him. If you are in his class counted how many times he says "OK" you will have a blast with that!!
if u pay attention and dont talk in class (for a change that is) its easy to follow what hes doing. o, and if u ignore the words ok and allright lol.
Not the best math teacher at SH, but still incredible.
Olson is great - i feel much more comfortable going to him than to Foresta. He can relate much better with kids, and can explain things 3 or 4 different ways
His teaching ability is very poor, he is an unbelievable man who is very good at math but cannot teach it very easily. My advice is to not take his class
