Sarna likes to force students to sit at exams they have no hope to cooperate with to make Mathematics an embarrassment to study. He changed my seating arrangement from regular to AP on the first exam day to set an example. He is the exemplification of ruinous study and is more likely to contribute by anecdotal force of Methematics
The most helpfully sarcastic and least boring Math teacher in my HS University career. Mr. Sarna could have taught anywhere, yet I suspect he chose high-school level because he could have most impac
He is one the most amazing teachers that I have ever had and I'm priveleged to have had him in five courses over four years.
Easiness? Math isn't easy. Sarna made it as easy as possible with avenues open to different ways of understanding. You sat down and you worked and learned math. I grad 1988, still the best teachr evr.
Best recent teacher at kits along with Mr. Mclaren. Will be greatly missed by the students, made math forward and entertaining. I could effortlessly poke holes in all harsh criticism seen on this site
5 years 6 courses, best and most influential teacher I had in high school.
One of the two best teachers I've ever had...no joke.
Ok, so i now like math because of Sarna's comedy. It is amazing how he does it. Best math teacher ever. Hands down.
Wonderful teacher. None of the rumours are true really.. I don't know why people compare him to house... Their both funny, sure. However Sarna isn't "unhappy".
Mr. Sarna's the absolute best teacher ever! All the horrible rumors about him are completely untrue..he pretends to be a grumpy old man who "doesn't care" but you can tell he really loves his job.
He's the BEST Math teacher on the face of the planet. (Also a genious, really!) AS long as you pay attention and aren't a complete moron, it's the best class you'll ever take. He actually makes you think.
he is AMAZING. best math teacher ever. as long as you come to class on time, with your stuff, and actually wanna learn, he's not mean at all, and sometimes spends like more than half the class just talking about his life and his girlfriend and stuff.
He is a good math teacher but he lacks social manners.
extremely good teacher, explains all concepts thoroughly and is very kind.
Cool teacher. I hope to have him next year again. Pretty funny..
He knows what he's doing and knows if you don't know.
Sometimes Mr. Sarna doesn't care about his students' feelings. He always picks on students. =.="
Al Sarna is unable to deliver the mathematical concepts of lessons to his studetns , His goal is to prepare his students to recieve high marks in the exams , regardless of their mathematical knowledge.
Well he's the coolest math teacher i've seen. That's a fact
Unit tests are hard, but it's very similar to assignments. If u show willingness to improve, he will try his best to help u. Don't really explain the whole concept in class. For those who are taking math 12, the first 2 unit tests are the hardest.
Sarna is incapable of teaching anybody with an IQ of under 150. Unfortunately for him, those who he could teach know the stuff already. He more or less acts as a guide through an empty room, and giggles with delight when you get to the exit.
I enjoy his class because it's structured, I am well prepared for the tests, yet i need to learn all the lessons from my tutor since Mr. Sarna's explinations are too complex and fast-paced. Although the thing i hate most is being put down.
Mr.Sarna i s a neat and interesting teacher who always helpshisstudents and has plentyof fundoing his job, he is the best teacher i have ever had in my life.
Sarna is the best teacher in the world! His assignments are very helpful. Favourite joke: "I will teach you, my child. I'm kidding, you're not my child, your mom and I were just friends. Your aunt and I, whoa...". He always says: "Is it clear why..."
He's a great teacher. Very knowledgable, very fair, and very funny. He might be a bit fast for some people, so if you need him to slow down and explain something, say so!
I'm thinking of two words... you all know how it goes. Amazing teacher, extremely fair.
He is cool and totally knowledgeable, versed in math flexibility and elegance. elegance=sweet yes.
Hes a good math teacher, but he steals all his jokes from comedy central. It gets awkward when everyone knows hes biting his jokes but no one cares to stop him.
Teaching style is a little too fast, and every joke he has told us, i have heard on Just For Laughs,but he is entertaining and is the smartest/most enthusiastic math teacher ever.
nice guy, funny and smart. but his severe "little man" complex puts me on edge. he clearly caters to the top half of the class and i often fall behind.needs to stop recycling jokes
wow, you really have to be in one of his classes to understand how amazing he really is. best teacher ever...
As math teachers go, Sarna is head and shoulders above the rest. And besides how many teachers have a lotion named after them???
I stuck through math 12 because of how much fun he is as a teacher...and I actually passed!
Coolest and funniest teacher ever!! lol jokes more than he teachers though..enriched courses are definitely hard!
i had him 4 homeroom and i would actually be excited to get my report card because we would get to sit in his class. HE IS THE FUNNIEST TEACHER EVER!!!!!!!!!!!
Best math teacher ever! So fast paced...wish I was still in enriched, I miss all the great jokes...that was such a funny class
best math teacher you'll ever have... get into his class if you can.
One of the most knowledgible math teachers in Vancouver. I owe a lot to him!
He is a great teacher, i had him for 4 years in a row, and now in Grade 12 i don't, and i've realli started to appreciate his funny, witty fast-paced teaching
Best teacher ever! I graduated, and his teaching took me through first yr uni. He's pretty funny too.
Really great math teacher, goes a bit fast, expects quite alot, but he really cares about his students. [the ones who he knows]
Very good teacher, best if you are in his class before, very hard course, but you learn, also he makes the class fun with his wise cracks and dirty jokes.
Very good class, one of the best teachers in the school.
When he says tell someone who cares, he really means it.
