Doesn't help when people ask questions, or at least does not explain clearly. The curve is still there, but is now less. Try not to ask questions in fear of him thinking you're stupid.

The only way to be in good terms with him was to be of a certain ethnic background and ask no questions no matter how much you struggle.

Mr. Whipple is the best. His Astronomy class was probably the most fun and interesting class I have taken in my four years there. Stargazing was a lot of fun.
