Worst teacher ever. Last year of teaching=>lazy=>final mark consisted of term 1 and 2, instead of term 1,2,3 and our final exam mark. Other teachers had to fix his marks on the following year.

I miss him very much. I regret not thanking him for teaching me (2 years). I hope he's enjoying his retirement.

Either love him or hate him. Be sharp in math or be burned.

I MISS MR TURNBULL! He was an amazing teacher and I learned so much. And the infamous "My meter stick is nice and warm" was pretty hilarious too.. and I wasn't even there to hear it first hand!

Probably the best teacher at BN! He explains very well and gives a lot of practice. I didn't study outside of class at all and I got a 5 on the Calc BC exam.

Smart students find him easy. Not-as-bright students find him quite hard to follow. His tests are quite simple (no question), but his lessons might be too fast.
