If you are someone who learns from REALLY good notes, take this man. I am a written learner, and a stickler for really good notes, and he does not disappoint. His theory is great and he's pretty good at answering questions. He gives challenging problems and is super passionate and energetic.

he is very energetic and a good teacher the only down side would be the fact that you cant text in class and I find it very high school of him and his tests are easier than the final but other than that he is open to questions and is clear in his explanations

Very good teacher. He will give you homework that he checks and marks so if you absolutely despise doing math homework, dont take him i guess, but his tests seem so easy because he is so good at explaining the topic. I felt as though the final would be harder since his tests did seem that easy but instead was pleasantly surprised. He posts practice exams for the tests and final that are very similar to the real ones. Highly recommended.

He is absolutely amazing! Extremely good explanations in class and actually makes math fun. He is full of energy and gives short clear examples. Prepares you very well for his exams and the final!

Had him for Cal 1. Best teacher ever. Old man, but full of energy. Loves teaching. Will always ask questions if you did not understand something and will do his best to explain it to you. You may also see him in his office. Very organised. He posts practice tests on omnivox before tests and the tests are exactly the same problems but different values. So make sure to ask questions if you dont understand the practice tests. His quizzes are always three questions FROM the homeworks he assigns.

Cal 1 was my favourite class last semester, and it's all thanks to Daniel! He's so organised and animated, and he simplified the ideas enough that even someone (me) who pretty much hated math for all of high school was able to easily understand and be fascinated by calculus. He might seem a little odd at times, but he makes up for it by really helping you comprehend the concepts. I wish he could be my teacher for the rest of cégep.

For Differential Cal (Cal 1):
Very structured schedule, good notes. He gives you homework problems every weeks to keep you on track and you can always check the textbooks for more explanations. If you have any questions he will be happy to ask. The exams can be difficult but you can make up for them with the final exam if you work hard on it.

Daniel Gatien is one of the best math teachers I've ever had. I had him for Cal 2 and he's the bomb. He gives a lot of exercises and as long as you do them, you should be well off in his class. I did really good and his tests aren't really that hard. Great guy, funny and VERY HELPFUL! TAKE HIM!!

He IS a good teacher. He's funny and has energy to spend BUT he goes very fast, doesn't demonstrate examples generally and I found this very confusing. I was lost sometimes but you really need to go see him - he WILL help you if you're in need, but just let him know about it, unless you'll fail.
