This is the best math teacher I have ever gotten! He is so passionate in the things that he does. He has made math really interesting for me, a subject that has long bored and irritated me. He made me interested in the fourth dimensions and in counting infinities! His test are really easy, especially if you listen in class and do all the exercices he gives you.

Awesome teacher! He has been teaching for a very long time and so knows exactly what hes doing. He explains the subject very clearly. He also has a very care-free attitude and will tell jokes every once in a while. His test arent too difficult either. He prepares you for them by giving you a bunch of exercises. I had a great semester with him!

I love my math teachers so far at McGill but for Calc 2 Fox was definitely better than the par. He has very interesting and helpful methods. Breaks down math to it's base components and makes it intuitive. He didn't get to make the curriculum, but he circumvented what he could to get the most amount of information across. Plus he's funny and swears very appropriately at the math.

Computer Science Technology program, "Linear Algebra" course. Tom Fox is the best math teacher at Dawson College, and the best math teacher I have ever had. The administration hates him because his methods are unorthodox. He is hilarious and brilliant, and conveys information with ease. All that being said, you need to keep up with the material and practice at home if you want to do well. This course is relatively straightforward, but I almost failed because I was not adequately prepared.

The best Math teacher ever.
Teaches Math with basic human language (vulgar) rather than Math terms that no one can understand or remember.

I am in love with this man. seriously. i love calculus because of him and got 100% on my exam all because of him. each class is like a story with a climax and a resolution where you somehow understand math without even having to try. his stories basically made my life and he sang an opera song to me and let me listen to his ipod during the math exam. he should get 10 on these tests.
