Had him many years ago at OHS. Actually googled the guy to see if he's still around. Smart man, fine teacher, but I still hold a dislike for him as a person.

Altman's an all around good guy who is willing to go the extra mile for the students. He makes all lessons interesting and applicable to life. He's a grade A teacher in my book

I thought he made us work too hard, until I talked to friends who came back from college. I guess he knows what he is doing.

Well he was right. University physics was a breeze after his AP physics class. He made us do things HIS way, but it works! Sorry I was a pain in High School. Hey, you know, KIDS! Thanks Dr. Altman.

Ego? Dr. Altman is known all over the world for his laser stuff. He lectures at big universities but he still came to my class in 5th grade. He teaches out of personal experience and I loved it.

I found DR Altman a real personality. He forced me to reach into myself to be better. And by example. He is always trying to be better himself. Didn't baby us, but then it was advanced physics.

I obviously struggled in his AP class but he always praised my effort and called me "one of his smartest students" in front of the class often. Gave the motivation to pass the AP!

This was one of my toughest classes in high school, but one of the best. Very challenging to keep up with lab assignments! I learned a lot in that class.

I don't know if he is easy, or it just seems easy when he explains it. My favorite class.
