You either love this guy or you hate him, few in between. I didn't like him and the feeling was mutual. But, I had friends who got a lot out of his class. You are going to run into people you don't get along with, good to learn how to deal with that.

A good math teacher, although he has a very negative attitude and can be aggressive.

Foster is hilarious! Very sarcastic sense of humour. If you're not good at math though, switch out because he is probably the hardest math teacher in the school.

Does not seem to relate well to parents. Larry seems to expect too much from his students. He treats them like they are college kids, which sadly is not the best way to learn.

Amazing teaching skills! Unparalleled coolness! Awesome action sequences! I haven't learned this much about math (or how to be cool) in any class, since ever. Everyone can learn a little something from Foster.

Foster is totally awesome. If he taught every class I would love school at least a thousand times more. It's like you go there expecting a class on math, but instead you are educated on awesomeness... along with learning the math too.

Probably the best teacher ever. He teaches things very well and doesn't hesitate to help you if you need it. He's also very funny and his disciplinary actions are very fair. I greatly respect him and wish he was my father.
