He is a good teacher but he insults his students way to much.

The problem isn't that he cannot teach - it is that he does not. I bombed the first trigonometry test because he did not properly elucidate the topic, with which we were not familiar yet. He picks on students, tells inappropriate jokes, and does not teach enough. That being said, his tests are easy, and probably recycled for many years. The first few months, I thought he was alright, but it's like he gets lazier as the year goes by. He embodies the problems with our tenure system.

Mr. Sasso fuels himself entirely on food from math parties. He has not eaten an actual meal for decades.

People shouldn't take his jokes so seriously; he isn't trying to offend anyone. The only reason why certain people say they don't learn anything from his class is because they happen to excel at math. But, he is incredibly laid back and should definitely try to challenge his students more so they will pay attention in class.

He insults students all the time. which is funny, except when he is insulting you. His tests aren't bad but he usualy goes over the material for it like a day before. He rarely collects homework, and because he was so lazy we were way behind the other 8th grade classes, and by the end of the year, we hadn't even learned parabollas.

Everyone sleeps in this class. He's pretty hilarious, but try not to sit in the front row. He'll make fun of you. His tests are amazingly easy. They'll take you around 10 minutes. Expect to find many of the same questions on the following test. He rarely teaches, but then again, there usually isn't much material to cover, so he'll have two classes before the test where he actually goes over the material. Homework is not necessary. It's put up on the boards before it's collected.

I've had him for a few classes so far and I don't like him. He's always late to class and he's so rude! He likes to make fun of and diss and the boys. We played hangman during class and he made a boy cry on the 2nd day of class.

dreadful teacher. it's true that he tells too many stories, and not much math gets done. he picks anti-favorites -- several people in the class (usually guys) that he fights with, repeatedly. my class never got anything done when i had him and by the end of the year, we were ridiculously behind on the curriculum.

Lets just say he is the NASTIEST math teacher ever --- he makes inappropriate jokes about some cough cough males in our class ... wats that all about? first days of the tests are usually like insanely easy, but the second day gets harder. as long as you do your homework, though, it seems you'll do fine

Let's just say he's the opposite of Ms. Kuberska: Tells too many stories...shows up late and cancels class...all in all you don't learn much at all.

Nice teacher, but sucky grader. First and third quarter policy -- you can only get A+ if you get above A+s on all tests. RIDICULOUS. Still, very easy.
