Mr Harwood makes math fun. He's always there to help you and he really makes you have a deep understanding of the concepts. Before I knew it, math became the subject i looked forward to the most. For me at least, he is the best math teacher ever!

i like that he always gives retests, he's fair to all his students. sometimes he teaches a little too fast and goes off on random tangents making it hard to understand. he's a good teacher if you know what you're doing. otherwise it gets really confusing. he's pretty chill, decent. ehh he's okay. not the best math teacher i've had simply because he's a little too passionate and wants to teach us everything he knows. sometimes it gets too much.

I think Mr Harwood's fine as a teacher.... IF YOU'RE GOOD AT MATH!! Most of my friends had him last year, and when they got him this year, they were scrambling to transfer out. His voice gives me a headache, and he keeps on trying to convince people that seriously DON'T GET MATH (I actually try, I'm just bad at it) that it's FUN. Most boring class ever.

During class he jumps from subject to subject, and just assumes that since a small handful of people understand it, everybody else does too. He does try really hard though, have to give him points for that. Though, if he expects us to teach ourselves almost everything - why are we even paying him to teach?

he trys to be funny but if you dont understand math get out of his class! he explains things in the most confusing way possible. He trys to give you options to solve problems but that only confuses you more. If you a math person go for it, but if your not, take it from me..get out of his class!

Unless you're a genius. You are not going to understand what's happening in class. If you go for help afterschool or at lunch, he's helpful. I loved the retests though, so I always got a good mark in his class. AND you don't have to do homework which is a plus.
