Mr. Sheardown is a good teacher although he is very loud and will pick on you in class to answer a question. He takes the entire class to teach a lesson so don't expect to do any homework during class. His tests can be very hard if you don't study. I know a lot of people struggled in his class so study hard for every test.
Mr. Sheardown is one of my favourite teachers in the world. Even though I probably complained a lot while I was in his class, I have now come to appreciate everything he taught us. His class made me love math and realize that I'm actually good at it, and provided me with an amazingly strong background that allowed me to absolutely nail calculus later on.
Just study and stop complaining about how hard his tests are- you'll be back to thank him later!
Thanks Mr. Sheardown!
His tests are suuuuper hard. I hate how he always calls on students, you can't escape. He's a good teacher and his lessons are good.
I'll put it simply, if you get put in his class, your relationship with your parents is screwed. He takes serious questions from students as jokes. He is always singing. In each test, he will f*ck you with questions you never did in class. If you get this idiotic teacher, RUN!!!
Although his class is hard, and so are the exams, you'll probably get more out of his class than you would with any other math teacher at the school (Mr. M is also pretty good). People complain about the amount of homework and test difficulty but they're probably the students that never bother to do any of the homework and complain that the tests were too hard because they failed when all of the content on the test is covered in the homework. All the questions on his test are covered in class.
He has great humor
Mr. Sheardown is a fun and interesting teacher. He likes to sing songs and pick on people because its sort of his comical way of doing thing. He picks on people in the sense that it does "burn" but it isn't something meant to be taken seriously. His tests though are probably the most difficult thing I have ever done on a consistent basis, and I've gone down some seriously stupid cliffs which are like 300m of near vertical drops while skiing, so that's saying something.
I'm sorry, but I extremely dislike him. The way he explains things are so confusing. Don't even get me started on his singing. Also, he wastes the first 5-10 mins of class on the attendance. "Is the test hard?" "No it's soft." *starts rubbing test papers all over his face* Worst class ever! I hate how he always picks on ppl. Most of the time they don't know the answer and he just ends up embarrassing them even more.
This fcker spends twenty minutes at the beginning of class singing songs to the girls in class during attendance and flirting with them for the rest of the class. He spends the whole block doing notes, and his methods doesn't make any sense. He makes fun of kids a lot, and once said that we are the reason that the economy will fail in the future. Bhenchod
He spends most of the class yelling and flirting with girls. He wastes the first 15mins of each class talking about nonsense and then says we are behind and blames it on us. I don't think he's qualified. He always makes fun of the curriculum. Once he started talking smack to me in class and tried to put me on blast but I said Waldo and he kicked me out
Please give less homework. From, Every Student Ever
Mr Sheardown sucks 21 21 21 21 21 no h8 m8 but you get a -8/8 its f8 just retire m8
Hard and his quizzes are like test and the test is like a exam. he only gives u notes during class time that really does not help u should give the kids at least 15-20 minutes to review the work in class.really hard if u barley passed last year he fails a lot of students.switch teachers if he is to hard
Love this teacher, always helpful. Makes learning fun.
Mr. Sheardown probably is the best math teacher one can have. I've had him for two years and I'd say I've learned a lot in his class. I don't understand why students don't like him. His class was very engaging. Even if his tests are hard, he is willing to help you! I wish I can have him again as my teacher. University life ain't the same as highschool.
Hate this teacher why do u always pick on students and make fun of them u bastar*d. Thats y u have no life.
BEST TEACHER EVER
His quizzes are more like tests and his tests are more like exams. He gives a lot of homework and picks on you in class (which I hate). He has some pretty weird recollections to try to explain things in class which makes things confusing.
Fantastic teacher, but also tough. He goes through material REALLY thoroughly, can get boring, but pay attention it helps a lot when it comes to his tests because they're long and a lot of the questions are from the examples you do in class! Some of his jokes aren't super funny, but just go with the flow, the class goes by better that way.
Mr. Sheardown is honestly one of my favorite teachers of all time. Not only is he fantastic at explaining Math, and EXTREMELY dedicated to his work, but he's also always a joy to be around (even when the world seems to be ending, like after one of his tests).
a very good teacher. has good teaching technique and has fun with his students. You should be happy if you get him
Odyssey is so hard with him. He goes by so quickly even though math was always my best subject before him. His tests are pretty tough and all you do is take notes in class.
hes to hard...and all you do is take notes the whole class
Hes good at teaching math, but hard. If you think regular math is hard, think twice about enriched
Sheardown is definately a great math teacher! i learned quite alot in his class since they are always fun! like everyone else said, his tests are really hard if you don't do your hmwk/pay attention
Not easy, but he's definitely one of the best! I learned a lot from him. As long as you pay attention and do your hwk you'll ace it! Straightforward and teaches really well! Hilarious too :)
He's an awesome teacher! so nice! but tests ARE hard, so study study study! very nice =D
awesome teacher one of the best ever. TESTS ARE KILLER! (if you dont study)
Possibly the coolest teacher at DT. Yeah, he assigns a lot of homework and his tests aren't easy, but he's willing to help if you ask for it and he will boost your marks if you show you care.
Would probably be my favorite teacher if he didn't teach math. He tells really funny jokes, sings a lot. but assigns a lot of homework and has really hard tests. doesn't explain stuff that well either
his tests are hard, he talks for too long, he doesnt like non-smart people, not my kind of teacher, but LOL sometimes hes cool
he is soo good at teaching math, but his tests r a little hard, but it does help us prepare for the big exams.
I think he is soo funny! He's super nice and very helpful. I do find his tests to be quite challenging though, but I still think he's a great teacher. Maybe he should only teach advanced math??
A loud and funny man. Makes learning math easy and fun, but has hard tests
gives an ok amount of hw but his tests are waay too hard, and theres too many notes
Well... I have to say eventhogh he might be snging a little bt too much, overall my daughter learned so much in his class.
Mr Shjeardown u roks my soks! his tests are hard but hes funnie and hes the best opera singer ever LOLs
the minority of ppl who dont like him, fail his class and they blame him when really they just dont try. he gives good notes and is funny and not uptight. test are hard and not always clear though.
awesome teacher but you really have to pay attention and he never gets angry at you. cept, his tests are hard.
Never had him as a teacher, but I could always hear him snarking at late students during my biology class and singing during my physics class, which are both in close proximity to his classroom. XD I've never had him but he seems like an incredibly witty, funny and nice man.
Yeah, no doubt about it. He is a great teacher. But his tests are quite difficult and it is impossible to do well (for some people). His tests are hard. He is really hillarious!
nice guy. can teach well, gives notes (THANK GOD) & explains well.
hilarious teacher! had him since gr. 8 =) he's so funny, patient w/ students. just completely awesome. however, his tests are hard.
He's a pretty DIFFICULT (not HARD) teacher, but a good one ... and a very loud one.
The teacher's not bad. He's a tough teacher indeed, but he is actually funny.
I still have my math notes from years ago after graduation. They are really REALLY great notes . Sheardown is the BEST and most dedicated math teacher you'll ever meet.
he's honestly pretty hard, but a very good teacher that is very willing to help. he makes jokes once in a while and can make you feel welcoming. It'll be class you look forward to go to.!
pretty cool .. but his notes dont cover most of the homework .. . btw talks too loud
Mr.S is so easy! His notes are very clear and cover anything you will see in your homework. one bad thing is that he'll make most silly excuses to not give you perfect marks
first time writer, long time user...Mr. Sheardown is cool, but not very clear at times
HE IS THE BEST MATH TEACHER! I HOPE I GET HIM NEXT YEAR! FUNNY, SMART, AND PATIENT. WHY ISN'T HE GIVEN MORE CREDIT?
best teacher one can ever get. hope i get him next year. and thanks for the awards mr.s...ur the greatest math teacher i've ever had......

Boring class, have to resort to eating to keep awake. Tests are relatively easy, only bumps up students that he favours

he is a really cool teacher...sad to see that people don't appreciate his humor

funny teacher. great personality. can teach u math unlike other teachers!!!
