Dr. Fogel is so smart and he will totally help you if you ask. He always supports his kids and I loved MI2 because of him.
One of the worst teachers I have ever had, Micah Fogel is completely blind at what teaching means. He is not only blind to the needs of his students, but the fact that the test he gives are significantly harder than the few materials he provides.
A teacher who is very blind to the student's requirements, Micah Fogel is extremely incompetent. He has very long, hard tests that often have very difficult wording. If it weren't for his use of the textbook any class that he taught would be utterly useless.
Dr. Fogel's tests may be hard, but he truly lets you learn by teaching yourself. You'll have him for MI3 or MI4 and you basically just do the worksheets in class with your table while he sits up front. Occasionally, he'll explain something but not often. If you want him to teach something, you have to ask. And he won't just give you an answer,he'll make sure you thoroughly understand the concept first. He also has very bad vision (legally blind) and won't know your name until the end of 1st sem.
Oh, the Fogel. Having only had him in Linear Algebra, I must say that Dr. Fogel is VERY TOUGH. Of course, being a second semester senior and not paying attention in class also didn't help. He was also my math team coach so I knew him pretty well. He is very nice and doesn't really care about what you do in class as long as you don't fail assessments. Actually his motto is: If you don't get CAUGHT cheating, you're being successful. However, that just leads his tests to be SUPER hard.
The man is really knowledgeable but has a hard time actually explaining what he knows.
Very smart, so he sometimes finds it hard to give good explanations in lower level classes. Really fun though, and clear on projects when you ask.
Fogel is funny and really hard for BCIII, gave the hardest arbitrary quizzes of all BC teachers (I compared). Still, he is a math god, has a theorem named after him. Helped me a ton, but intimidating.
He pwns everyone at math. So helpful, if you don't understand he will find three other ways to show you a theorem. Awesome guy! However doesn't remember names cos he can't tell who you are.
Very tough, yet brilliant. I am learning a lot in Multivariable Calc. He is hillarious and makes class fun. He never says take my word for it. He always proves concepts and theorems. Awsome teacher!!!
The class I both did the worst and learned the most in.
Awesome teacher. Wish I'd done better in his classes.
Where does he get his kicks? From stroking his cat all day?
Dr Fogel is cool. I did, however, sleep the majority of the time in his classes.
