Surprisingly, I liked this class. He demanded quality work but didn't mind if it took all quarter to do it, tests were easy, and I came out with a much better understanding of biology.
It's one thing to be hard, it's another to just be out and out mean.... he was both.
Ekberg is one of the smartest men i have ever met, it was a hard class but i'm glad i took it, it was very good
AP/IB biology is by far the hardest class I have ever taken. Ekberg is strict, tough, generally unhelpful, and often rude. However, he taught me really well and I really learned the biology.
Grading rules are way too strict. We watched videos all the time in there, and expects us to remember them. One time he spent half the class going through papers that he didn't like. Good luck passing
I think that he was so difficult, I don't think he teaches really well
He must really hate his kids because all it seems that he does is scream at them all day! His class isn't hard because my child isn't doing poorly.
He goes on and on and on about politics. He thinks that he is the smartest teacher in the world, but in reallity he knows very little about economics.
He's hard, but skilled. I'd like him a lot more if he weren't so arrogant, but you have to admit, he does teach you learn things.
Hard!? Maybe, but get used to it. If you plan on going to college Ekberg is the only teacher in HS who'll prepare you.
he always controdicts himself and his class isnt as hard as people make it out to me, but hes very strick. overall i think his class is asinine, but you learn!
I'm really not sure what to think of him. His class REALLY isn't as hard as you guys make it sound like. But, thats not my problem.
Mr. Ekberg teaches outrageously difficultly, but you have to admit, you learn a lot in his class! Just because he has a hard class doesn't mean he's evil.
His teaching methods are outmoded, and what he teaches is outdated. Needs to retire.
You all are a tough crowd. Ekberg does his job; he teaches! I got a 5 on the AP and a 7 on the IB. About the sense of humor... he tries, he really tries.
Many people don't like Ekberg because he is more intelligent than them. Ekberg is very intelligent and you *CAN* learn a lot in his class. Difficult but good.
Ekberg is a rite of passage. Do you learn? Yes. Is it freakishly dificult? Also yes.
Mr. Ekberg grades inconsistantly, and students never know what to do to meet his standards. He ridicules students that ask for help. Very poor teacher.
Challenging course you can learn a lot in, very smart guy.
Funny at times, but makes class ridiculously difficult and is unwilling to help.
