does not explain concepts clearly and rushes the lessons
I'll be honest, before coming to his class, I was very scared that I would fail his class and learn absolutely nothing. However, luckily, he's not as bad as most of his reviews say. He does do some weird stuff in class (swinging a bowling ball from the ceiling), but he has good intentions. In short, he's a great guy but a bad teacher. Most of my friends complain about low marks but to be honest, physics is a complex subject, and you have to do the homework to understand it. Oh and take notes.
Very fun teacher in every aspect having to do with character, you're gonna enjoy the class time. But man doesn't know shitake mushrooms how to teach physics in an understandable manner. We were assigned a project that had absolutely nothing to do with the curriculum. If you get this guy and expect a teacher that cares about you or your understanding of the content...run. If you do get him the best way to survive his class is to constantly be asking for clarification and help, he's hella smart.
Spends half the class "making us think" with abstract questions that only serve to confuse most students before actually beginning to teach anything. Even when he does teach, he's scatterbrained and often gets his info mixed up and has to revisit topics once he realizes. Again, confusing. Class difficulty varies wildly based on class averages so if you're not good at physics stuck with geniuses you're screwed. TL;DR he doesn't teach. Learn everything from the tb. Good luck.
If you are in his class, just sit down (maybe listen to music secretly) and smile. I can only speak from my grade 9 experience but if you sit in the back he wont bother you. You can fake working during class, the only things he grades are exams, projects and unit covers. The exams are confusing, you can fool him by writing a lot of paragraphs with big words. Take into account that he likes to be in charge and he walks around the classroom when giving pages of the CP or the textbook. Worst jokes!
Great guy overall, but if you want to learn physics, you are probably better off reading and studying from the 2 textbooks he uses. if you did well in his grade 9 or 10 class and expect it to be the same for physics, it wont happen. He strives to keep the class average at 73%
Overall, Mr.Keehn is a great teacher but you have to make sure you ask him questions you don't understand or he won't know you're having trouble. His tests are long so you have to really understand the information and study well because they are very time consuming. However, once you get used to it, the tests are fairly easy (but you have to study).
He's super funny, understanding and a great person. However, he cannot teach for his life. You can see he's trying his best to teach but he can't teach at all. His tests are very confusing and make no sense. He marks really unfairly to many individuals and he simply just isn't in the teaching mood. He rushes everything and he's not very clear on what he has to say. He's trying his best which is admirable but he's not cut out for teaching.
He reminds me of Walter White
He knows his stuff, but he can't exactly teach it very well. Listen in class, read the textbook, and do some of the homework, and you should be gold. He does prepare you for university though. Usually available for help. Picky on useless things (eg. eating in class, lates, etc). HORRIBLE SENSE OF HUMOUR, SOMETIMES RUDE AND OBNOXIOUS (ESPECIALLY TOWARDS ESL). You'll never fall asleep in his class though.
He is a good guy i guess, but when it comes down to teaching, he is not a good teacher. He is very disorganized and clumsy!
Cool physics teacher who tells really bad jokes. Mr. Keehn is no regular teacher playing by the rules, teaches from the book, and gives everyday homework. He is more then that, gives his heart out and
Good guy, tries his best, not the best teacher though.
I just hope he will remember my name by the end of the semester :S
A teacher that will walk into a door in front of the class... i don't know if that was anything related to physics or if he wanted to demonstrate but the rating pretty much sums him up.
A teacher who really cares about the students and helps want you need it. Just a bit hard though.
A nice guy. He won't remember your name. Explains things in a complex way, but, you can always ask him for help. He grows on you.
he's really nice. i find him talk about every important points in the class through vivid examples, though i don't find most students get the point. but he makes physics class interesting
i say he is a very nice and funny teacher. Am not sure if he actually explains thing poorly, i'll just learn whatever he teaches me.
For someone teaching physics, I'd say he did a really good job. Physics is pretty hard to explain, especially to people who never took it before. Doesn't really check homework well but works both ways
He was a really funny and likable guy, told a lot of jokes & stories that made science bearable. His homework checking methods are questionable & his smartboard technique is lacking.
lol aw. I feel bad for this guy . I mean, people can tell he's trying , but he's just not a very good teacher. He tries to be helpful but completely fails , and at the end, he confuses us even more.
can neither teach nor does he know his stuff..should not be a teacher ...there should be a standard...he spends an entire class talking nonsense when everything can be said in ten minutes
mr. keehn has problem explaing concepts to the students. He tries though the results are not very convincing.
not a good teacher at all, doesn't no what he's do at times. this physic project is not thoughfully plan out causing some student to fail
Mr. Keehn was ok! He makes lots of jokes. He knows his stuff, but he's not that well at conveying them when he's teaching. Just remember to ask lots of question when you have him.
He is sometime hard to understand but if you ask him hes a great teacher. Hes also very helpfuland acually wants his students to succed.
first unit in physics was just HORRIBLE. like half the class dropped, but after that he got better..slightly.
good teacher. is always willing to help. has made physics one of my favourite subjects.
awesome teacher.....don't teach alot....but knows alot of stuff...=P
OOOOOO ya mr. keehn i was a student that in ur physics class. i think u r very funny but u teach very good n u r a nice guy
He's not funny, but he's good at making things clearn. He is really not funny!
