Initially comes off as really strict but is very chill when he sees that your tryings. Favours the top students in class but gives everyone a chance. Absolutely cannot stand students that show no effort of interest. Simple and straight to the point notes and teaching. Intimidates you to try harder. Does a great job of preparing you for university. To Mr Ramsden, Math has got to be automatic for success.

Mr. Ramsden is easily the best teacher I ever had ever. He definitely knows what he's doing and make sure you have him as a teacher in pre-calculus 11, 12 and calculus. Clear and concise notes. Definitely will prepare you for university. A hilarious and knowledgeable teacher. Can give you lots of advice about career and future paths.

I'll have you know I graduated top of my class in AP Calculus, and I have over 300 confirmed exams taken. I am trained in trig equations and I'm the top student in the entire mark-sheet. You are nothing to me but just another insignificant student number. I will obliterate you on the midterm with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my words. You think you can get away with plotting a parabola incorrectly?....I recommend you be in his class if possible!

Getting a laugh out of mr ramsden is hard, but once you see it you'll feel like you just accomplished something huge lol. Reminds me of the grinch who stole Christmas and he just wants everyone to love and understand calculus. If youre gonna take precalc 11/12 switch if you dont have him as a teacher. He knows what hes doing i bet he could do it in his sleep.

I graduated in 2006 and then went to UBC. He is the best teacher ever!!! Seriously, even better than most university prof. You guys should not take his excellent teaching for granted otherwise you gonna suffer in your freshman year. If you study hard and have a proper attitude, you will find him the best math teacher ever! He is hard, but prepares you well for university

Easily my favorite teacher from high school. He starts by breaking your spirit so you hit rock bottom. There you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Also prepares you for university. He says he's lax about attendance but if you skip and not do well he will show his disapproval. During one test there were not enough seats for me so he kicked someone who doesn't come to class because he can tell I care more about the class.

Old-school teacher that believes the entire world revolves around calculus. Downtrods other subjects as if they were useless. Don't be fooled into thinking he doesnt mind the skipping.

Mr. Ramsden is a tad insecure about the place Math holds in the great scheme of things. Yet the Humanities teachers never belittle math; they make it possible.
