He barks a lot at students, and there was a time when i tried to discuss a homework question with him and all that I got was barks and barks and barks. So damaging to my psyche. Never tried to ask him another question.
I find him mentally unstable and not helpful at all.
A great teacher. He's good at teaching. He gives us a lot of time to read and study by ourselves. Great at explaining and demonstrating scientific experiments.
Not the easiest teacher to mingle with, especially if you're not pursuing a career in the sciences. Basically his course is what you make of it, nothing more or less
You will not learn in his class because he doesn't teach. If you do his "check points" you have to write everything he wrote or you will get like beginning which is a fail.
Unfortunately his university teaching style makes high school physics a challenge for some. He knows his stuff but can't really teach that to his students.
good style for univeristy but.. a bit too much for high skool students.. at least give us soemtimes to get use to the style gradually ....
He's a good teacher.. too bad I stop liking physics.. in grade 12.. lol math and physics I don't like..
mr martens is a great teacher. The people who say he is hard are the ones who don't do homework or do not work hard enough. Stop complaining here and say it to his face if you think he's so bad.
Great guy. If you plan on going to post-secondary and into sciences, you have to take Martens. His style is great. Challenging and not your typical fill in the blank crap.
hes alrite.. his demos are good, but.. physics jokes are kinda lame.. but.. it relates to the stuff i guess ^o) o.o kinda confusing at times x.x
anyone member that cat joke?.. haha, hes hilarious!! the class was hard though. but i had a lot of fun and learn a lot as well.
dont be afraid to take his phys11 course.. its hard!! but hey.. he preps u for the gr12 phys so well!!!! trust me.. you jump about 10%... he's hard.. but good
Very difficulr teacher. makes you come in for help, but is not a bad guy
he's kinda geeky since he told me about this page.. if you read this sir, i rest my case
He creates an interesting class with his hilarious jokes, I sometimes wonder where on world did he find all those jokes.
such a nice guy... hard class though and very different
I little too friendly and desperatly trying to get us to laugh at his jokes
he's very funny with lots of interesting stories to tell
He really knows what he is teaching and creates an interesting class with jokes.
