Horrible teacher, he would spend the whole day talking about the lesson, and as soon as you leave the door he tells you, that you have 25 questions and a booklet for homework due next class.
He also only checks homework, when he knows nobody does it.
If you get him transfer out!

He is not a good teacher. He's very confusing and does not teach properly. I used to do very well in math but when I got him, my mark dropped a lot. He doesn't teach anything besides getting you to copy notes all class long. Also he's annoying.

Awesome teacher. Had him from gr 8-9 and he taught us everything we needed to be ready in future math curriculum. Honestly the best teacher I had in Highschool. He made sure the whole class understood and was very fair with marking and adjusting test dates.

Mr. Chien is a great teacher in many ways, as he is smart, humorous and able to explain/clarify questions very well. Most likely you will have him for 2 years if you are always in honours, and it is a great experience! He has many cool and fun ways to have you learn, including jokes and games. His homework amount is sort of insane, and can leave you up until midnight, but NEVER, and I repeat NEVER, get him mad (he rarely does though), because if you do, be prepared to die a horrible death. :)

Fun teacher, tells a lot of jokes and such. But the main issue is the amount of homework and the difficulty of >SOME< of his exams, especially if you miss out on one piece of important information. Normally I'd rate him 9/11 but that's just plane wrong so I'll go with a standard 6.5/10.

I hate him. His notes don't make sense when you look at them to study, he does nothing fun. All we do is take notes, and then do more test on the notes that don't make sense. =.=

Actually checks homework, so you should definately do it. People say his tests are hard, but I didn't think it was. I did well because of bonus marks, but I never really listened in class.
