It is hard to point the finger at yourself when you are the problem. For all those non-math people out there... "Get over it !!!" I was not good at English. So Learn something else.Barker rocked

He changed my life. Offers a challenge that prepares you for University and life. If you are looking for a teacher to be your friend or teach to the lowest level, you are in the wrong class.

I had him for honours math 12 and computer science just after he started teaching. He's tough but prepared us well for university calculus.

As a young teacher entering the system Dave helped me in ways that are hard to describe. To trivialize, he is the only person that has ever taught me how to build a proper final exam.

If you are a former student who gave 1's...it just means you weren't good at math in his class and feel bad now and want to get back. Well, he's a harsh and tough teacher but a good teacher.

Barker was a very no-nonsense teacher. If you come to class prepared, and do the homework, you will enjoy his class. If not, well... "you're gonna fail!"

Not THAT bad, but make sure you do your homework, otherwise you're screwed. If you pay attention in class and try hard, you'll stay on his good side.

Possibly the worst teacher I ever had. I got a 74 in his Math 11 and a 92 in Math 12. Teaches to one side of the classroom & total small-man syndrome.

Small man syndrome. However, teaches math like nobody's business. If you do the work, you learn math. Just like magic. Good teacher

He was my calculus teacher 16 years ago. I learned a great deal from him and what I learned helped me through university.

Heh, JD Barker (He totally drank JD during class) was a short angry man ... that being said, he knew his math. If you stayed on his good side, he was big help.
