If you aren't one of the top math students in your class right now, don't expect to have it easier with Mr.Brooks. NEVERTHELESS, as a slightly above avg. guy in math who did not love or hate #s, Brook's classes (Adv.Func & AP Calc+Vec) were excellent. I didn't get the best marks (still respectable), but I sure learned A LOT; this man will prepare you for university. Do your HW, work hard, review your notes, and you will do well. He's a fair marker. Nothing bad about him at all. Respect!
Absolute favourite teacher ever! Reason I decided to study math in university. First time I felt challenged in a math class and earned my high 90
Mr. Brooks is undoubtedly one of the best high school math teachers out there. He has an incredible knowledge base expanding well beyond the required high school curriculum. He teaches very progressively and as actually bale to teach considerable more in a short period of time.
He's not the easiest teacher, but he more than equips you to do incredibly well in his class and above and beyond. He wont take any of your BS though, so don't screw with him.
Fantastic teacher; goes very in depth into stuff not in the curriculum
brooks is actually the most hilarious math teacher i've had. he's a fun guy and knows what he's talking about, but his level 4 questions are nearly impossible to do so people always do badly on the tests. he works the marks to your favour tho (Y)
Great teacher, great person. Fun to talk to, very easygoing and relatable. Knows material very well, prepared me well for university-level math. Fair marking.
He knows math. The problem is he can't teach it. I think he's a bit arrogant and didn't like his class at all
Nice, fun, knowledgeable, and very fair !
Goes into advance level 4 stuff that no other math teacher would go into. had adv func. with him got 83. calc w/ another and got 95. Calc teacher went up to him and asked him why my adv func was low!
Teaches extra non-necessary material. He's a master of what he teaches. Very difficult tests but marks fairly. Bumped up my mark considerably after seeing improvement on my final exam.
no one in our class did their homework he gave us all excellents for hw completeion (Y)
I think he needs to take a more HANDS-ON approach, because he just talks and writes, and it doesnt really TEACH.
Very fair teacher, tests are very hard but he provides all the information needed and help prepare the class well!
i had him for grade nine.. shocking transition from middle school to him. but it was great!! i wish i could write as fast as he can.
Mr Brooks is probably the most knowledgeable math teacher I've ever had, and one of the coolest and laid back people ever. He also always wins at mindgames. DMC ftw
The reason I'm going into waterloo math next year is because of Mr. Brooks. His calculus and vectors class has been by far my favorite class in my entire high school life.
Last year i used to hate math. I was failing the academic. I literly dreaded going to math class. and now because of Mr. Brooks. I absoloutly LOVE math. I would have never expected that from me...(:
Mr.Brooks is so cool! and suchhh a good math teacher! :D he really knows and enjoys his stuff! :D
awesome teacher, taught me EVERYTHING i needed to know in APcalc and Algeo... he was funny too.. 50cent and running away from home and all
he's an amazing teacher, i had failed grade 10 university math and then took his college class and got a 95%
Great algeo/AP calc teacher, brilliant at subject, very helpful (you just have to ask), slightly picky on communication, but very funny and makes math awesome. awesome teacher!
Best Math teacher! i almost failed grade 9, and then i had him 4 gr 10 and i raised my mark so much! he is also really funny!
BEST TEACHER I HAVE EVER HAD!! his classes were so much fun and I actually understood math this year
He's the best math teacher, how does he make it so easy?
A real pro, but a kid at heart. Wonderful teacher that made Calculus fun! Keep on being awesome!
Brooker is the only teacher where I can walk in 30 mins into class and he don't care. He has a motorcycle.
