Oct 23, 2014 OMFG!!! My friends told me to get into his class and now I see why. He gets awards from Harvard but still loves to teach us. He taught me I am a great person, he didn't just teach math. Amazing. Flag Rating

Jul 29, 2014 As a parent of three kids, I could not be happier that they had this teacher in school. Every day they would come home and tell stories of what happened in math. Imagine a teenager excited about math!! Very caring and incredibly amazing! Flag Rating

Jul 28, 2014 I have had him for three of my years at Yale. All I can say is that I am sorry I didn't have him for all four years. He challenged me in math as his class is not easy but that is because he will pushed me to do great things. Thank you Mr. F. Flag Rating

Dec 02, 2013 Could not stress more about how much this guy cares about his kids. He is always available for extra help, and encourage people to learn math better than any math teacher I've ever seen. He's the best teacher I have ever had to this date. And that means a lot coming from someone who dislikes math itself Flag Rating

Jun 14, 2012 Without a doubt THE greatest teacher of all time. This guy not only will make you understand math like you never have before, but he will make you enjoy it and enjoy being in his class. All his crazy gimmicks such as pizza boxes on his walls with students' names (including mine), weekly music quizzes, and the infamous "wheezy cheezy runs" make his class awesome and you'll love attending everyday.
