His favorite word is impossible and his middle name is unfair. He cares quanta over quality. He doesn't penalize sloppy and late work by his favorite ones. He should have retired long time ago. His classroom feels like a prison.

Mr. Wahl just seems extremely detached from the class when he teaches. Everyday we just walk in,sit down, and watch as he mumbles out whatever his presentation slide has written down on it. Wahl doesn't really care if you fall behind; He's just there to follow the same schedule that he set out an unknown amount of years ago. If you're not interested in physics at all and are just here for the AP credit, I seriously recommend you drop it.

Mr. Wahl ONLY cares about science olympiad and doesn't pay much attention to the students who REALLY want to learn. Very unhelpful and most uncaring teacher that I have come across.

Great teacher and you can hear him and his mumbles (which are mostly jokes anyways) perfectly fine AS LONG AS you sit in the front. Otherwise you're screwed. :) My advice- Fight like hell to get a good seat in the beginning of the school year. Also when you ask him things (even to go to the restroom) he always seems a bit...aloof. But that's just the way he is. Get over it and get that friggin A.

Mumbles a lot. Knows a lot, but that doesn't help if you can't understand or hear him.

Took AP Chem with him. Got a C. Lowest grade I ever got at Troy and was ashamed (like, ASIAN shame). Asked for help, didn't get any. He enjoyed working with the left-brained students but ignored the ones who actually needed help. Couldn't understand what he said half the time and his writing was illegible. Re-took Chem with another teacher and received an A. I think that says enough. He's a brilliant man but an awful teacher.

pft his sense of humor is awesome. the class is worth it just for that. but his tests are really hard and he sort of looks down on non-geniuses. overall, not a bad introduction to physics.

Though his class is hard and at times it is hard to hear him, he gives good notes and you can make out what he is saying much of the time. He actually has a nice sense of humor with his notes.

Must be extremely self-motivated to succeed in his classes. They're fast-paced, and he won't baby you. If you don't underestand something, ask another teacher (Mosig) because he won't help you.
