Oh, just wait for the celebrations
I had a nightmare in Gr12 where my OAC schedule read "Ha, Ha, Kwan" and sure enough it became a reality! I had Mr. Ha for Calculus and Algebra & Geometry as well as Mr. Kwan for Physics. I tried to switch classes but there was no space so I stuck with it and glad I did. He has a passion for math and remember being picked to write test solutions on the board and all I can hear from him in the corner is "wonderful". If you can survive Mr. Ha (and Kwan) then university will be a breeze.
An odd and funny teacher. Passionate about math but teaching method seems better suited for enriched students as he moves forward pretty quickly and it isn't hard to get left behind wondering what's happening.
He was one of the nicest teachers I have ever had, very accommodating. He knew his math. But it was impossible to understand him, and he would give you terrible answers if you don't understand. But he is funny, you'll get very close with the terms "celebration" and "carnival".
He has an odd personaity. Very stone-faced until he starts talking about his pets and becomes very animated and excited. If you stay engaged in his class and follow along with the lessons you should be ok, but I would still recommend a tutor since his tests and quizzes are reaaaally hard. He's very understanding though, if you're sick and can actually prove it then he's extremely considerate. I've been of school for around a month and he's been ridiculously helpful.
Was a 90+ student in grade 9 and 10. If you keep up with homework, you'll get mid 80s but the exam is where you screw up. Horrible teacher. If you have him, get a tutor.
Mr Ha is the worst math teacher I've had during my entire high school experience. You can never understand anything he says and he moves through lessons so quickly that you have no idea what just happened. His tests are really hard and puts things you haven't learned on them. My mark in grade 10 was an 88 and now I'm at a 67. I hate him with a passion and hes so mean
Do your homework and an 80 is guaranteed, his tests are hard I can't lie, you really need to develop your thoughts far further than just the texbook for his tests. But VERY knowledgeable. DO NOT yse your phone he'll make LAME and uncomfortable jokes
around 10 people dropped the class. so i don't think I'm the only one who believes he isn't a good teacher.
He's an amazing teacher and friend. Amazing math teacher.
His lessons are a bit confusing, but if you ask him after the lesson, he'll clarify it better :P
absolutely brilliant. i have breezed through university math because of techniques i learned from him. What you put into his class is what you get out.
I suppose if you can follow his lightning-speed lessons on the board then he is a good teacher for you. Mostly, his lessons confused me and struck fear into my heart; although I am generally a good math student, everyday I left his class having no clue what was going on. The calculus course I took with him made me hate math and fear taking another similar course in the future.
Best teacher ever~ last year i got an average of 97 from him~ already missed his big laugh~
he's really RUDE and mean... he keeps staring at you to the point of making you VERY uncomfortable. he thinks he's funny but he's not. and do not get me started on his teaching skills... everytime i try to listen to what this man's teaching i get really confused and forget everything i know. so my policy is NVR paying attention to what he's teaching... and no i'm not failing, far from it.
geometry..really hard subject.but..really..good lesson from mr.ha..!!.can get 80's or over 90's.easily..generous test mark....very funny class..meditation .and comparing math and science and so on...very funny guy...
Best teacher ever, can't complain about that. Just be Happy, don't Hate. And WATCH, because he'll be. And listen to his jokes, even if they're lame, they always tend to be funny later. Just note, do the work and do good in tests and listen, you'll get the best teacher ever. Mr. Ha 4eva!
Um...doesn't teach much...doesn't answer my questions...but very very passionate about math...and summer school...Marks hard tho...
Nice enough person, is TERRIBLE at makng sure everyone understands the concepts.. I find him very lazy
You'll definitely hate Mr. Ha... If you're lazy and ungrateful. Otherwise, it's obvious that he is a talented teacher and actually CARES. You just have to do the work to keep up.
hes really funny (not on purpose) but not the greatest teacher...sorry mr. ha
Worst Teacher EVER!!! an average day: comes in, scribbles on the board for 5 minutes, and then assigns questions to be done. Basically, it was a study room.
Ha is the coolest math teacher! his math quizzes are MULTIPLE CHOICE! and his "carnival day" and "celebrations" are pretty easy. he always gives you enough time to finish.
GREAT TEACHER, FUNNY & APPROACHABLE. MANY POP QUIZZES, so be prepared.
good teacher. Teaches math pretty well. but seriously, his tests r hard.. i was a 90 math student in grade 10, this year, I dropped to a 78
mr. Ha is by FAR one of the BEST teachers at Haig! and to all those who says he cant teach... mr. ha is one of a few who can actually teach math!..ongbak2 starring Cuong Ha...hmmm
VERY HARD teacher.... barely understand what hes talkinga bout... but a nice teacher in general
he can't teach at all !!! u just need to get a tutor!! or u won't understand nething he says...
Be prepared to enjoy many surprise "celebrations" in his classes. What a great guy! He makes "the truth" so "enjoyable"! :)
And he knows it very well.
if you wanna learn math well you should learn from him!!!! he's a realli good math teacher
takes a while to learn the names of the students...never ever mention Mr. Kuan in his class...cool dude~
Oh Mr. Ha is w!cked, seriously, i had him for summer school. Definately the best teacher :)I never got a good mark, but learnt a lot :) "Use u're calculator" :D
he's so awesome, one of the funniest teachers ever, but he hasn't made math any more entertaining for me...luv ya pappi!
He is amazing! He is passionate about math and makes it interesting!He makes you work really hard, but it pays off in the end. A cool guy too!
I went through the trouble of switching my time table 3 times just to get into his class.It's really worth it. He's a great TEACHER and a very ENRICHING person .
calculus is my favourite class cuz of him. he is a good teacher and a good guy
If you do your work, you'll do great. Amazing teacher! Best math teacher ever!
Teacher with integrity, knowledge. Bug him to kick the ceiling!!
One of the finest minds at Haig.Tough celebration .He's not a fake like many.
Funny guy! Tough tests, BUT HE TEACHES! UNLIKE A LOT OF OTHER TEACHERS! GO HA!
A teacher who always says Gifted in MAG0AA. One word to describe him= Picky...
Mr.Ha is a really dedicated teacher..he's funny too...!! CALCULUS IS FUN
An inspiring teacher.One of the best math teacher I ever had in my entire life!
