Mr. Lum is a fun and helpful teacher. We ended up learning a lot of interesting info in his class, not just straight out of the textbook. The only downside is that he procrastinates on his grading (which is understandable considering the number of students and his baby)

I had Lum for TOK/AP Physics, and while I had him, he was busy with having a (cute) baby. Nevertheless, at the end of the year, Mr. Lum is the reason a lot of my classmates and I want to major in physics or engineering. Lum is very cool, knows a lot about physics (he makes up problems on the spot), and he's very informative on the latest developments in science. Not a stressful class, not a hard class. Best science teacher, and you HAVE to have Lum at least once (or more) before you graduate.

He is a good teacher but occasionally, he forgets that he's teaching an honors class, and it gets too easy.

Mr. Lum is a really knowledgeable, but also cool teacher. He doesn't require much in his class, but by the time of the test, you do understand most of it. Opinions of him are based more on whether or

Either you get physics or you don't but if you ask him for help he will try to explain it to you and he's really cool about it. Just tell him you like STP and you'll be good in his book.

He's been the greatest teacher I've ever had. I'm really going to miss him now that I've graduated.

Plum? I give him props for trying his best to give relevant and understandable examples for a subject that's hard to grasp. There are times when you just don't get the material but he tries his best

Nice guy, but he's a little vague in his going over problems, and his material on tests is too easy. But he helps you if you need it, I guess.

Awesome funny but when it came to teaching I felt cheated and that taking AP physics was a waste, so says my 1 on my AP test, got an A in the class..hmmm?

If he could complete a sentence without restarting it a different way maybe he would be more understandable maybe key word maybe

He's a cool teacher, but he can't teach. He could ace a test in physics, but to teach anyone anything... oh boy. SAM'S ClUB!
