My math 30 mark suffered, but my knowledge of this world did not. I also had him for math 31 and surprisingly calculus was much easier than math 30 with him. A bad mark will only stay on your transcript, but the stories he tells will stay with you for the rest of your life. 11/10 would recommend him to any student, just have a fall back plan like modules or online.

I did not like Math 30.Mr. C was not my Math 30 teacher but he taught me Math 31.I never had him in 10 or 20 .I found him to be one of the amazing teachers on staff! I really enjoyed term 2 of my grade 12 year.

Mr Caron was a good teacher. In math 10, i struggled a lot and honestly hated him but for math 30 if you do the homework & try to do his in class example with him (or ahead of him then you can look back and see your mistakes) you will be prepared for the exam. GO THROUGH THE TEXTBOOK!! He will call on you if you are struggling & use his study methods he explains because trust me, it really helps!! I got 90 on the diploma & had low 80s in his class (even some 60s) so stay hopeful!!

smart man... he just needs to go slower. if you're good at math, you'll love him. If you're not, get out. you need to be a fast learner and actually study everyday. sometimes his tests are unfair because he would give us easy questions during class and then BAM a really hard question on the exam. i don't think he cares about his students lol..he doesn't try. he does his job, but nothing more. messy notes, confusing, calls out students in class. his stories are funny tho..

Let me tell you his notes are the worse. The way he teaches it's really hard to understand, he a great person, but the way he teach you is just plain bad. His notes are all over the place and messy .

I hope Mr. Caron reads this as he is always looking on the site, reading his reviews.
Mr. Caron is a great teacher. Had so many memories in his class. If you do your homework, his tests should be pretty easy. His tests and exams were pretty hard, but it prepared you for the final.
I remember skipping an exam, hiding in the atrium, then I got caught, took the exam, and then heard him yelling about me to his other class while in the other room.
I'll miss him.

Mr.Caron honestly is such a good person. He is a great person overall. However, in his class at times students find the material confusing. When it comes to tests, he does not make them other teachers make them. So you have to be ready for all hard questions and such. From what I witnessed students either loved caron's teaching or hated it. It just depends who you are. Whether or not you can grasp the material fast enough or not. Caron is such a wonderful person but not a good teacher!

Mr. Caron is a very entertaining, funny and nice person. However, his style of teaching seems to be difficult for a lot of people to understand. The notes are presented in an almost unorganized, very confusing fashion, and with quizzes that are worth so few marks it is difficult to do well. This is the first class I have ever been failing, and many others seem to have the same issues.

Mr. C is funny and relaxed. You can easily skip out of class or not even go and he wont notice or care. Those are the only two good things about him. Other than that, he is a terrible teacher. He doesn't look at the students as individuals, but rather as a whole class. He is only concerned with the majority and class average. He also wastes a lot of time telling stories or just ending class which is great at first, but you really regret it when he just rushes through his notes which are terrible

After finishing a gruesome year of math with Mr.Caron, I've decided that, though Mr.Caron's a great guy, funny, not very strict, he's terrible at teaching Math and your marks are going to plummet. If you're writing notes in his class while trying to understand his explanations, you're going to have a bad time. With vague explanations and examples, you're better off seeking help elsewhere because he won't bother to help you alone if the class is in a rush. Mr.Caron: great guy, not a Math teacher

very nice teacher, he always has funny stories to tell and takes 20 minutes a class to tell everyone some jokes. Hes the funniest teacher in the school, but not the best at teaching, his notes can be a bit messy and he can get off track quite easily. Unless you're already good at math or can understand the textbook instructions, you will not have the greatest marks.

Easily distracted, messy, and unwilling to answer questions. His classes are too unstructured, resulting in an environment that invites students to slack off. The notes are disorganized and often confusing.

He was a pretty good math teacher, very patient, a little repetitive, but had interesting stories. It was easy to become bored, but he was genuinely focused on his studets doing well on quizzes on exams. However, he moved the dates around too much. If I had one major critique, it would be to crack down on homework completion... because NO ONE does it. I think this would improve marks, and he wouldn't have to go over things next class. Overall, really nice teacher!
