I had mr.bateman for grade 11 math, he warned us from the start that this was a tough course and it was just that. However mr.bateman explained things well answered ur questions well as long as you asked them, which is key for success in this course. Mr.bateman cared about his students and made math pretty fun. Sorry to those who struggled with it but it wasn't his fault
Mr. Bateman was a very funny and outgoing teacher. He really knew what he was doing and explained stuff very well! He is the reason why i got a good mark in his class. Yes it was hard but he was very helpful!
Bateman was the second best teacher at STA - at least when I was a student there. Going from Grade 12 Calculus to 1st year Mechanical Engineering, I had nothing but praise for this teacher. He taught me to problem solve better than anyone else and I didn't learn anything new in first year calc until Feb - with only two months left and a failing class average. He's a jokester but overall, still a great teacher. And makes you smile in math - which is a rare quality if you ask me.
i took 12U calc with bateman, very nice guy if you have a thick skin...i didnt find tests/quizzes/tips too unreasonable as long as you do your homework and ask questions!
My experience with "Master Bateman" was unpleasant. I feel his constant picking at people's inscurities is an injustice to the intelligence that he might be able to offer his students. When a teacher makes his students cry, he has gone too far. I have never before nor again had a classmate drop a class because the teacher kept hitting a sore spot. He teased her about being anorexic, and she was. Not cool Bateman, not cool.
i enjpoyed his class, always had a good laugh.he punched me in the back when i offored to answer the phone for him though. is that allowed? (to be punched?)
I was very uncomfortable in his class. I felt that he was not entirely respectful of certain students (and this is not coming from a 'bad' kid)
What is wrong with you people..Bateman's the BOMB!!!!haha hes smart funny and actually cares about his students...sorry YOU cant handle his tests...
He's a bad guy. He doesnt teach very well....He confuses everyone.
Great teacher...has a lot to offer, but it is wasted on math, teach a social sci
Bateman is a great, funny guy...if only he weren't teaching Math.
