Terrible teacher, does not test you on things he teaches. Does not teach at all. If you are in this class, RIP
Very great and kind teacher! Recommend Physics and photography.
This teacher is completely useless as a grade 9 pre-ap science teacher. He would depend on videos to teach the class while he sipped his coffee and ate his lunch at the back. The tests he would give did not relate at all to the textbook and only to his own mini lessons he gave in class. So basically if you missed something or didn't take enough notes, you got a 70 or lower. He also has a knack for making cringy jokes that only make this class all the worse. He should never teach grade 9 again.
I am in university now and I can definitely tell you that he is the best physics teacher, explains and repeats important concepts to build your fundamentals which will really benefit you later on.
This guy was really awesome! Super cool. Nice guy. Passed me cuz he knew it was the right thing to do.
we read from the textbook and taught ourselves while he was in the back room making coffee. he spent half the semester teaching the first unit and then jammed everything else into the second semester.
he is one of the cutest teachers everrr. really nice and always willing to give you extra help if you need it. BUT - you've been warned... his tests are HARD and the only way to achieve a 90 is to stu
Ackerman is a suave guy who likes science but astronomy more than anything. Prefers to let a video talk more than he does himself letting a relaxed and social atmosphere in the classroom. Really cool.
....What to say, he is incredibly slow at marking, you wont get anything back until 2 months after completing it. He goes off topic all the time, and really wastes a lot of the students time. He has t
tests and quizzes are easy but extremely unclear, doesnt really give extra help and we have our exam in 4 days and he hasnt even marked our entire bio unit. when he gives you work periods, work ahead
Write down everything he says! Doesn't always answer your questions clearly but he has a lot of patience. Tests are challenging but always do the HW! Funny-ish jokes make classes enjoyable -no eating!
he is a really hard teacher and you really have to pay attention in his class. don't bother doing the review in the textbook because that's not going to help you with his tests. his tests are SOO hard. but other than that he is a really great teacher. funny and made physics class so much fun
Do your homework his tests will be easier =) need help ask him. I'm a bad student, dont be like me =)
Not a bad guy, but too full of himself. Clearly enjoys the power he has over students. Reality check: You're a teacher, not the prime minister. Get over yourself!
He's a really great person. He's a nice and funny guy who likes to help his students.. but i've heard he marks really hard
Never had him, but in gr. 12 bio, he would interupt my class every day at the most random times to say the most random things, it made bio worth while.
HES HARD MAN!but funnnyyyyy and niceeeeeeeeee not a broing class and he knows how to teach...his tests:Swoah very hard
Awesome teacher. Ironic..used to attend thornlea in his teenage years, and now teaches at thornlea with some of the teacher's he used to be taught by. Good drummer, optimistic towards everything, no complaints here...
Ackerman is great. His physics class helped me chose my major in university. All around, very helpful.
cool lectures, but stupid jokes , keep laughing at them!! :D, next time go with sara and siavash's CD's for music. . .jazz is annoying!
hes sooo cool!Hes a great teacher who makes learning fun!He is very funny and tells jks that make ppl laugh cuz theyre sooo corny!
good person, willing to help. very geeky though. bad jokes, i don't know why people laugh. the only one i'd use is "May Mass times Acceleration be with u!" fair
great teacher, the e-mail contact was really helpful. He made the class fun
Good lessons, willing to give students extra help. Nice guy overall.
I FAILED!!! BUT I STILL LIKED SITTING IN PHYSICS CLASS WITH THE LIGHTS OFF LISTENING TO PINK FLOYD
