Good teacher, not a fan that he only counts tests, and with only a dozen in the year, each test it worth 11-13% of your year-end final mark. But to put it simply, if you do the work and put in effort, doing well and getting an A is easy. He provides many resources and explains when asked. A little quirky, but overall a great teacher.

I usually get 92 in maths and stuff but got 65. He doesn't teach very well and doesn't explain. Sometimes we are doing math and stuff he tells a story for like 15 mins. I still managed through te year

You all need to calm down with the hate. If you are to actually put effort towards your math class, it is so easy to do well in his class. He provides so many resources before the actual test so it is should be incredibly easy to get a high grade. He explains his content well, however he is very fast pace so if you are confused it would be best of you to just talk to him in private or ask him to repeat again. Overall he is incredibly helpful, intelligent and will push you!

mr ryant is honestly the worst math teacher i have ever had! i believe he wrote his own good reviews here because hes joked about doing it before! i was a 90% a student in math before but i barely passed with a 52% this term! hes jokes r racist at times and he makes fun of you in front of everyone and makes you explain everything embarassing to normal stories outloud in front of everyone. he once made me explain why i was late by 5 minutes in front of everyone and it was a very private and inapp

I don't enjoy his class at all. He doesn't explain very well and doesn't help students very well either. He makes fun of his students and is so annoying trying to be humorous. He makes us study the practice quiz over and over and uses that for his tests, which doesn't make it any better either.

Mr Ryant knows a lot. He knows what he is doing and he's the best math teacher I've had so far. He tries to explain to the best of his ability and 99% of the time, everyone understands the concept. He makes many corny and cheesy jokes and come backs, but those make his class enjoyable. Sometimes, small things tick him off, so be careful. And he cares a lot about health, so if you have something for snack, don't eat it in his class unless it's fruits/ veggies/ nuts.

He does know alot, but he issues no quizzes, and his tests are worth 100% of the term. He is clear with the explanation and has many corny jokes. he's lazyish to help but still helps. He has some small disorders so dont raise your expectations. Overall he can teach, but be aware that he only gives chapters tests.
