the Banjevic is like Einstein! she can show proofs of equations from more than one way, which is a huge help to understand. always try the problems and ask questions when you get stuck, she will take the time to explain.
Best teacher at alex mack
Yikes, haven't had her yet (fingers crossed) but her class seems like they always have tests, the was a fire drill and i swear her class stayed inside the entire time, it was during lunch time and she came into the hallway to shush people bc they were doing another test, I have a class next to hers and she keeps walking into our class and closing our door (even if its just our teacher teaching something) she always leaves her door open though
I hate when people hate on Ms. Banjevic! She is extremely helpful and is the most knowledgeable math teacher at amac. She is strict, but with her, you get results.
Prepares you well for university-level calculus I, and the university teaching style. Try hard, do all the homework, and go to extra help at lunch, and it's possible to get a very high mark in the course. She is very helpful - you just have to ask for help at lunch.
Terrible. Favouritism. Mean. Rude. Knowledgeable. Always assumes you do not do your hw if you do bad, thinks you will go nowhere in life since youre bad at her tests. Calls you out infront of everyone calling you stupid. If she does not like you....leave asap.
She knows a lot of math......but really that's the only positive thing I can say about her. She wastes half the class with useless diatribes that nobody cares about and then spends the other half putting people down. Her tests are honestly insane and contain things she didn't even teach, and then she acts all surprised when people fail. She also gives out a lot of quizzes and assignments but only puts the ones where everyone did bad on into your mar. Honestly she's a terrible teacher.
I'll admit she knows math but that's the only positive thing I can say about her. Her tests are extremely hard, she has favouritism towards her top students and hates the ones who are failing, cannot explain concepts clearly, constantly puts people on the spot in front of the class to embarss them, and has no patience. The good reviews are most likely done by her "favorites". If you have her switch to a different class! Trust me I wish I did..
She does seem to know quite a bit of math, but in my opinion, she doesn't relay her knowledge that well onto her students. Degrades you if you ask a question. Tests are literally the hardest tests I have ever written. Don't even get me started on the exam. Won't give half marks, so expect lower than you think. Barely uses the tb, but expects you need to know the content so read it.
Also, to the person who said, "she made someone cry once", ONCE?! She's made AT LEAST 4 people cry this year.
Mrs. Banjevic definitely knows mathematics and what she teaches. The only problem is her teaching style and approach. Students often feel intimidated to the point that they are scared to ask for help for fear of being mocked for not knowing something. She is a "tough love" person so she bullies students into learning, and it sometimes works and sometimes doesn't.
Based on my observations, she may seem cold and insensitive, but she is a warm caring person. Her class es ARE hard though!
She has favouritism towards her star students and hates all the rest. She will only like you if you're amazing at math, otherwise switch out of her class!! She is not easy to approach and is bitter and strict. Two words, Hated her!
Really hard teacher
Very knowledgeable. Explains concepts thoroughly, in an easy to understand way. Makes first year university Calc much easier.
The rating system is a tad flawed in terms of rating Ms Banjevic. She is a one of a kind teacher, doesn't rely on the textbook a whole lot but uses it enough. She is a teacher who will w/o a doubt prepare you for uni. A bit tough but it's tough love
She is really a great teacher and I like her so much! She really teaches you something that will help you in the university! I will never forget her and her selfless help to me!
She constantly bullies failing students, and when she's not bullying them, she's giving up on them. She made someone cry once
didnt do great in her class but i learned a lot and was prepared for university. if you want to improve, she is always there for you. she likes to joke around and she loves discussions about the world. YOU HAVE GOT TO WORK HARD!!
I did not do very well in her class but LOVED her. She is such a sweetheart. She not only prepares you well for math but prepares you for life. A really inspiring teacher.
She made me like math again, after a previous teacher made me hate it. I know a lot of people say she's strict, but I don't think so.
I learned so much from her. I can see why some people wouldn't do well in her class because she teaches very quickly and doesn't really like going over things several times. But I really liked her and learned a lot in her cla
I think overall as a teacher she is very good... definitely prepares the grade 12 students for university is like... not the best teacher when it comes to explaining
Has favors, very unfair Smile at you when you do well, shout at you when you do not as well Very weird
Sometimes mean, always entertaining. Although a bit intimidating at first, you get over it quickly. Her marking is very fair. I gained a much deeper understanding of math thanks to Ms. Banjevic.
This is a hard rating. She is a great caring person, it you care about math, but if you are at all slow she will leave you in the dust. But you can also ask her for help. Everyone will agree that she is too hard.
As much as she was a nice person, she was a terrible math teacher. Her expectations were absurd. I know people who failed her class and are now getting 90s in university math.
I liked her personally, her explanations always threw me off a little too. But she was willing to help and nice about it too.
there's a human side to her, you know? she's usually very very strict but sometimes she'll surprise you by how thoughtful she can be. excellent teacher overall. i hope i get her for calculus
Strict, but an extraordinary teacher! Will GET YOU TO UNIVERSITY. Very cool teacher
Though she's tough, it really helped once I got to university. I found university calculus so easy and got a 90 which was higher than what I got in her class.
I will admit she knows her stuff but SHE DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO TEACH. the point of a teacher is to be patient and willing to help...and she wonders why her class does so poorly....
she is awesome.i liked her!! i mean she is tough and mean to ppl that deserve it.get on her good side nd u'll see the great lilian hiding inside!tough but great
you will appreciate her after you come out of her class and truely realize how much you've really learned (not only about math either)...
She is one of the best math teachers i have ever had.she really wants to help you understand and do well.even if that means tha she needs to repeat her self 2X
People don't realize how great Mrs. Banjevic is. She is always willing to help those that will help themselves.
