It has been 20 years since I sat in Mr. Knox's class and it still feels like yesterday! He made math reachable and we never knew what to expect! Now, as a teacher, I think of him fondly and remember how he taught and what he would do to make class fun. It is Mr. Knox's understanding, knowledge, and assistance that has helped me in my journey to become the best teacher I can be!
One of the best teachers and people I've ever met! It's hard to find nice people like him in life. Even though geometry was challenging, I always felt at home in his class. He's an incredible teacher and if you ever get him, you've been blessed! He always seems to pair what we're learning about with light humor of some sort (most notably his great puns!) and I often wonder if he sees shapes and geometry everywhere he looks! You won't get a more dedicated teacher than him! GO MR STARFISH! :D
I miss Mr. Knox. He is unarguably the best teacher to teach calculus to juniors. Amid all the politics at Troy, Mr. Knox seems to go straight past that, finding true passion and enthusiasm for providing straightforward education to his students.
LUV U MR KNOX one of the hardest class ever but learned so much from it !
His tests are definitely ones you complain-outside-with-fellow-classmates-with. Study hard.
Yes. My favorite teacher hands down. Tests are too easy. Guess who?
He is the best teacher I have ever had. He is also prom king.
Great teacher but his tests are crazy hard. Love his puns.
VERY knowledgeable! Hardest Math Teacher in the world. Especially Calc 2... :( Awesome person though!
He's the Knox Fox... What else can I say? You MUST study and do homework consistently to get a B or an A in this class.
His tests are pretty hard and there's so much homework. But he's ridiculously funny and his classroom has a fun environment.
It's a party in the classroom with the corniest jokes you'll ever hear. But they're so corny, they're hilarious. He draws little cartoons on the tests, but the tests are the hardest thing ever. I had him for Honors Geometry.
good helpful unbiased teacher. but his tests are the hardest. honors geometry is THE hardest class i have ever taken in my life!
Toughest tests on the planet, even a challenge for top math students. But very committed to his students and education. Personalizes his tests w/funny quips.Hon Geometry, the toughest class of my life
funny, quirky, helpful, nice, clear, entertaining. but that doesn't do justice to how hard his tests are. INSANE!
amazing teacher stay after class and he helps a lot i got a 100 on his test
he's a teacher who loves disney, model trains, corny jokes, and chalkboards. you won't find a teacher like him anywhere else. super funny, helpful, and a really great teacher who makes calculus actually fun.
he made h.geom. fun! you wont ever find a teacher like him. tests were dang hard though. but his corny jokes and stuff like the sohcatoa dance ahaha those were hilarious.
He's a great teacher, and he's kinda funny. XD He's a very nice guy, but if you aren't good at math, don't take his class. I knew a lot of people that couldn't get past a C on tests.
let me guarentee, you wont easily find someone like this at any other school; very funny w/ his corny jokes, a little harsh with his tests and grading but gives helpful advice if u take time off to visit him outside of class
his tests are FREAKING HARD. OMG. sunny hills geometry is NOTHING compared to this guy!
He's cool...original...funny, but his tests are suuuuuuper hard.
Ridiculously difficult, and tortures you all year and doesn't tell you what exactly is moo city, I demand to know!
i have to say his tests and work are just plain weird difficult but he's nice
I had Mr. Knox for Calculus 2, which was probably the hardest class I've ever taken. I got my first F on a test in his class (but I ended up with a B which shows he gives you the chance to recover) but his tests are HARD
he's such a coooool teacher and he's really good at teaching!! but his tests were just freakishly hard.
I had mr knox for calc 2. This man has not one iota of knowledge of the math that he's teaching. He prob wouldn't pass his own tests (partly because theyre horribly written and also because of his lack of foundation for calc.
Don't be late to class or he'll give you a detention. He is a very good teacher overall and a very caring person. I had him for honors geometry in 2001 and math analysis in 2004, and i have never had a better teacher since.
i must say that i didn't like him at first cuz i thought he was picking on me but when i look bak on it i realize it was all very helpful and must say his class was the best one i've been in, most informative and helpful
BEST MATH TEACHER I EVER HAD!!! He taught math in a way that i understand and enjoy. He has great diagrams and great methods of teaching geometry that make them easy to remember. Without him, i would hate geometry
Really hard teacher in Geometry. i heard calc gets easier cause he gives the least hw of all teachers. great guy, good christian. really nice, funny (sometimes) jokes. you will love him.
awesome. draws the best circles. he will live in his comic strips forever.
he is the coolest teacher ever; don't be late though or fall asleep: it's the unforgivable sin; he knows his stuff; makes weird puns and jokes so we'll remember different concepts
calc bc was soo hard! but mr knox is still a great guy and makes the class fun. yay! "bernoulli is unruly"
a bit hard for me, but very very funny. Makes classes fun with his lame "jokes" haha! Oh man..that SOHCATOA dance was great...
i do not always find him funny, but he is a cool guy
Mr. Knox makes Calc fun even for the humanities buff. I love his class and I will miss him DEARLY next year!
Nice guy, but doesn't know the subject that well. His breadth of knowledge coincides exactly with the textbook. Especially true in Calc BC.
Mr. Knox is the best! I still haven't seen him in the mall...
"y prime NUMBA LINE!" Oh man, he's one of the coolest teachers ever. So funny :D
"Dahd...ah have ah questiohn..." HA! This is the BEST class!!!
Best AP Calc teacher. SOoo many puns in that class. Choppa choppa! Choppa choppa CHOPPA!
the best teacher ever! so friendly and sweet! explains stuff super well! tests can be difficult, but he explains math so well that he makes it easy! do the hw!
what do you do with asymptotes?? *you gotta approach the asymptotes! you gotta approach them!!!* greatest teacher ever! we love you!
you make geometry so much more interesting! im going to miss you next year! i dont fall asleep here <as opposed to rasch, 1st sem's teacher>.. lol..
He is the BEST teacher ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No one can compare with him. He is very helpful and he is just the BEST BEST BEST BEST BEST BEST BEST BEST!!
Your the best math teacher ever! You make the notes so much fun! i love your corny jokes.
Great math teacher!!! His tests are hard, but if you know the material, you can do well. More homework then other math classes but there are incentives to do it
Clear in teaching lessons but doesn't know anything that's not talked about in the book.
i had him for summer school for 5 hours straight and i still didnt fall asleep in MATH.. so nice so corny so funny! n he can't get enough pi sweatshirts :D
OMG way better than rasch...I actually stay awake and am sad when the bell rings
awesome teacher. tough class but amazing as a teacher. hilarious.
i had him for 4 hrs/day in the summer and i stayed awake everytime!
every now and then a good joke, but doesn't compare to Mr Madrid
So hard, but he's awesome man..one class I haven't slept in yet! Totall awesome.
Will do anything to help you understand math!!!!!!!!!!!
class of 1999 alumni... will go out of his way to help! sincere desire to help..
Doesn't really know math. Anything other than what he taught gets minus points.
Coolest/Nicest/Best Teacher at Troy. His Tests Will Kill You Though...
Great teacher...Hes adorable!!!...i finally enjoy math...
Very inspirational teacher who makes math fun to learn.Knows how 2 teach 2!!! =)
hey dad? what do you want son? :) very cool guy on a bike...
BETTER THAN SIENFIELD+MARX BROTHERS+THREE STOOGES+GALLAGHER+ETC.!!!!! Riot.
Mr. Knox helped me bring Math Man into full potential. He makes jokes. What?
I had him last year and he inspired me to be excited about math
