I generally really like science but I really did not like Halinaty's class. He never really taught anyone. He just basically gave us a textbook and we taught ourselves at home while he was either on his computer or talking about nonsense, wasting our class time. The way he marks is absolutely ridiculous which costed me some mark. Not to mention that he was horribly biased towards certain kids in the class. I hope I never have to get him again. I had too many bad experiences with him that year.
Greatest Science I've ever had! I don't like Physics but he made it really fun!!!
He is a good physics teacher and a okay chem teacher but his climate unit feels like a online course.
He is very nice and personally I had no troubles in his class but if you aren't good at learning from a text book i strongly suggest you switch.
Honestly the worst.
fun and friendly, helps when needed. gets confusing but I might just be stupid lol
change your classes before its too late
He Was a very unhelpful teacher
Halinaty is a generally nice man but a horrible teacher. His self-proclaimed "inventive" and "fun" methods of teaching basically involved teaching ourselves the lessons (in university physics) while he sat at his computer, then writing a test which seemed fair until he marked it and gave the entire class 50s-70s because of his illogical marking scheme. I've never had such a terrible experience in a class.
Mr.Halinaty is quite a nerdy, stereotypical physics teacher. He's a nice guy and he means well, but his teaching method is un-orthodox and quite primitive. The way Halinaty teaches his class is by doing a thing known as a Flip Class. A Flip Class is Fancy way of saying teach your self. This is obviously a terrible idea due to the fact that physics is an extremely hard course to teach yourself in. This is the major reason Mr.Halinaty is a terrible teacher in my humble opinion.
He was rather bad at his job, he wouldnt teach, he tried in the beginning but failed and ended up getting a whole achedemic class in the 60's. Then there forth he kinda stopped teaching, he just gave us pages and sat at his computer, he didnt tell us any thing and just ignored us.
He was a good teacher!I may have thought otherwise at the time but I still remember like everything I learned in his class a year later!I did have to ask a bit of questions for clarification but its academic level.That, in my opinion is expected.Don't see why people don't like him.He is a very intelligent, kind, fair teacher.He was always VERY helpful to help you understand consents especially after school,on his own time.Participate in class & on his googledrive stuff &you'll have a lot of fun.
Not my favorite..
It took him 2 weeks to hand back a 20 mark test, and practically the entire semester to mark our labs and final project. He doesn't teach you, he just tells you to look over the information yourself and then "discuss" is later in class.
The only teacher i ever hated! So glad i never have to have him again.
I have to admit, he doesn't have a good rep. but other than a few issues (like the fact our light unit was sooo long and we hardly did any bio.) he was okay, he got the job done and i feel like i did learn alot :)
I had this guy maybe 8 years ago, and he's one of the teachers that remember the most. The guy had fun projects like making a model of a cell using food. That and he likes Dune!
Okay science teacher, but awful person in general. After he volunteered me to do the blood drive, he made me stay after school for 2 days to catch up and wouldn't help me in class to learn what I missed, I guess volunteering is a bad thing. GIANT NERD.
Tough class but he helped me thru it. Always stayed after class for questions, let me hand things in late, good labs, and comic book assignments!
Lets us hand stuff in late. Gives bonus marks. Tries to keep class interesting. Helps with math problems too.
We have to pay to go to the bathroom, we had silent day, but really cool experiments. He marks too hard.
i personally dont really like Mr.Halinaty. he's very strict and doesn't allow talking for fun in class. haha, we get a couple laughs out of him every once and a whilee. : )
Halinaty was an immense help in my study of physics. The independent learning structure in his classes was highly beneficial.
He likes Dune! He rocks. Plus he gives out good bonus marks. He might frighten some students, but he's really a nice guy.
You need to help your students out when their obviosly struggling, and lighten up a little bit
Tough but cares and helps u through. Tries to make assignmetns and activities fun but still worthwhile. Not a clown like a certain other phys teacher.
White shoes, brown knee socks, green shorts. No further wxplaination required. NERD!!!!!!!!!!!
i so didnt like u! u always picked on me! hated ur class! and know many others who will agree with me! glad i passed! and hope to never get u again!
Yes, you can go to the bathroom. But you'll have to spend some extra time after clas. ...Awesome guy tho!!!
Awesome teacher, helps a lot, loves that purple marker!
Mr. Halinaty is the greatest!! He even makes physics seem fun!~
