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!

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.

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

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.

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.
