If your objective is to scam some high grades for your report card, then she is not for you. Her objective is for you to understand the topics thoroughly. So simply doing the questions from the textbooks will not get you the 100 you're aiming for.
I was in the gifted program and we had many exceptional teachers, but she stood out the most. I have since then graduated from UofT Electrical Engineering program and I owe much of what I've accomplished today to her mentoring.

There will be a million misconceptions about this teacher. Most people will say she doesn't teach. But do your homework, read the textbook, and be proactive. Her style is like university, She introduces the topic, the learning is up to you. Work hard

She is really cool. if Mr.Williams is the -ve charge then Ms. magami is always +ve and you can't compare these two. My advise to whoever has or will have her for physics is "Sit in the front".

She may make fun of you and yell at you, but don't take it personally. She's very fair. You get the mark you deserve. If its 89, then you get 89, don't expect to be bumped to a 90 for no reason.

Very funny lady. Smart and knows her stuff, but she's not good at teaching. Read the TEXTBOOK! do your hwk. WORK HARD. Easy labs, hard tests + popquizzes. She's very nice though.

pulls quizzes from nowhere and makes fun of a lot of people. However, you soon learn to expect this stuff and you see the insults as less personal. knows her stuff though and returns tests next day!

I can honestly say one of the worst teachers at this school. And this isn't just random hate, I don't understand why she feels that she has to verbally assault her students before she actually teaches

You need a lot of initiative to do well in her class. But she really does know her stuff, and is often quite funny. (Once you wait for her to stop yelling.)
