Guys, he is the best teacher i have ever had. Initially in his class i hated him to the extent of dropping his course but later on in life i realized everything he taught stuck in my head. All u have to do is go there with an open mind. Wish Mr.Cox all the best in life!

Mr Cox expected lots from his students but never made it clear what exactly he wants. He gives out labs without instruction OR explains them so much you run out of time to complete it in time. Hard marker and not fair at all. Puts things on the test that are grades above you and expects you to know what to do. Loves technology but fails to make powerpoints interesting. Ask a question, and he totally misinterprets what you're saying so you are left more confused.

Exciting man, dry teacher. If he offers you out of class help, take it. Otherwise you will learn little in his heavily power-point focused classes. He is knows the qualities of a bad teacher, but rarely sees where he goes wrong. His various stories are both the most interesting and most educating and informative parts of his lessons. Lessons are dull, but he is actually interesting as a person and nuanced in his opinions. Guy blew up an island, teaching is a waste of his knowledge and skill.

He was my grade 12 chem teacher. We went from 30 students to only 12/11 because everyone failed the unit test and we all had a week until midterms and didn't want that mark shown to universities. He's a really nice guy but a very bad teacher. He gives tests that are very hard and usually tells you some slides on his powerpoint are irrelevent and are for your "entertainment" then puts them on the test and skips by them really quick when teaching. Switch out IMMEDIATLY if you get him.822

The only reason I'm giving him only 3 stars for some of the categories is because I had him for grade 10 science and he really can't teach biology or physics.
My mark was in the high 80s, but it's my fault it's so low because I slacked off during grade 10. However, the people who actually put in the work did well. People complain about him a lot, but when he was my teacher, he was very reasonable and allowed retests and things to pull your mark up.
Study hard and you'll do fine.

if you have his course, change it immediately. he might be nice to you, but the mark he gave was so low. he's probably is the harshest teacher in woodlands. if you don't have the habits read the text book before the class,then you couldn't understand everything. don't wish you study hard then you could get better mark, his test was freaking hard! well, if you good at chemistry and needed some challenges, go ahead, you might just get 80 marks.

BEST TEACHER IN THE WORLD!!!!!! He inspired me to pursue a career in geology. He's very kind to his students, especially the female ones. Mr Cox rocks my socks. He taught me that the sun sets 8 minutes before we see it, and never to tell your gf/bf.

He's an incredible teacher; he teaches very well and yes, his tests/exams are challenging but if you can't handle what he throws at you, then that's a lacking on your (the student's) part, not his. =)

Doesn't teach much. At all. What is covered doesn't cover the entire test. Nice if you're not in his class, but once you're in, you're basically screwed.

The worst teacher ive seen by far. Completely unorthodox with cheesy jokes that will make you hate him more. If you can switch teachers, switch to walker for sure. Hes much better. Mr cox also marks super hard and most of his reasoning is stupid and pointless. he NEVER explains anything at all.

i use to think he was the worst teacher in the world. but i was proven wrong by two new teachers. but regardless, this man marks mad hard. all he gave was lectures. i didnt find him all that helpful either. when asked for help, this man would just give you this "look" an that was all.

Good willed and a good scientist, but he is a difficult teacher. He explains things in a way that is difficult to understand, until you figure it out yourself in the textbook. His questions and tests are evidently twice as hard as the other classes of the same course, and sometime completely incomprehensible. He marks projects that are supposed to be for learning purposes only, and I have gotten practically 20% lower than my normal average in his class. Uninteresting and unclear.

Not a bad Teacher. However he was quite awkward and not helpful at times. Still managed to squeeze out an 82% in 11 chemistry.

great teacher, very easy to understand, different teaching style; he expects you to read the section being covered the next day to be studied at home so when u go to class,, its really easy to understand, ask him anytime for help, he will respond and if he doesn't.. sent him a mail or leave him a voice message hes really into helping people out

He's mean, doesn't tell us stuff, makes cheesy jokes that waste the whole class and then forces us to do everything at home. Plus, he marks very heard and doesn't even tell us what he's testing us on. One of my worst teachers so far.

Maybe if he knew the subject he was teaching he would be a good teacher. Also if he didn't change how much a question is worth after you have already handed in the exam. Also maybe if he could answer your questions he might be a little better of a teacher. He should stick to geology and his stories about going to science camp.

He's an okay teacher. Definitely not the best or the worst. I've had Bilecki, now even the semi-bad teachers are like angels. Cox just needs to stop the corny jokes and stay on topic when asked a question. Marks very hard and teaches science at a very basic understanding in Grade 9. Tests are killers but his labs are "okay". Overall he's an okay teacher.
