His take home tests enable students to get really good marks, although his in-class tests are quite a bit harder. His lessons are a bit sporadic and in order to really understand the material it's important to read the textbook and ask a lot of questions. He's very knowledgeable, but his lessons usually just brush over topics, so to succeed you NEED to ask questions. Really funny teacher, although it's hard to determine whether or not he's actually joking sometimes.

Biggest troll. Very chill. I really recommend taking AP Physics 2. It's a challenging course, but Mr. Lock makes up for it by giving you take-home tests which will definitely boost your mark (expect 100%s). The only in-class tests you do are easy regular tests. If you're not in it for the physics, take it for the teacher. He's a really cool dude.

Probably the nicest teacher ive ever had. He gives you time in cass for assignments and allows you to make up tests without a note. Its as if he was a teenager a week ago, lol. But his tests aren't easy but if you prepare for them and enjoy physics, the class is an easy A

Mr. Lock deserves more credit as a great teacher. If you're doing bad in his class, that's entirely on you. He is clear and concise regarding homework assignments and tests and always gives out the necessary material for his upcoming tests/quizzes. If you study, you'll do perfectly fine in his class. He has some dry and quiet humor so if you're paying attention, he is funny. Great teacher overall, so much respect for him aswell.

He's quite soft-voiced. He can get kind of boring at times, especaily if you already know the material. Quite picky on labs, however.
