Best math teacher in the school. In grade 8 I didn't really care about my mark and I took his class for granted. In grade 9 I wanted to succeed but had a bad teacher. You only realize how good a teacher he is when you don't have him. I don't think he liked me because I didn't do the homework but he never showed it and he still smiles and says hi to me in the hallways to this day.
He's nice, and is certainly a good teacher but I feel as the years goes on he's slightly getting more and more Impatient with students. So future students, be careful cause this is something I noticed when I had him for grade 8 and then 9.
He didn't help me even when I went for a re - test and I've noticed that he plays favores. He also puts things on tests that he never taught us.
He is a very good teacher that's all I gotta say you would be lucky to have him for math
I enjoyed his teaching of math when I was in grade 9, however, I did find it that every math class was the same- review, go over for the first hours what to do, and then start homework, which is alright, but can lose some students attention pretty quickly. I also did not like how he openly called me a liar once for stating for my reason for being tardy in his class ( I am a student who is quiet, always pays attention in class, and does what I'm supposed to and always listens to the teacher.)
He is definitely the best teacher I've ever had. He is very knowledgeable and can explain everything clearly. His notes are great. His lessons are always really well planned and executed. I really learned a lot in his class.
I had Mr Cruickshank back from 91 - 94. At first he reminded me of Mr. Raddish from Degrassi Jr High. I was terrible at math. He tried his best to get me a passing grade though. He is a good teacher, explains things clearly and is very knowledgeable. How many memorized numbers from Pi is he at now?
Definately one of the BEST math teachers I have ever had. He is great at explaining everything, and his in-class notes are so helpful. Even though I re-took math 12 in the summer, I used HIS notes to help me get through it. Best. Math. Teacher. Ever.
a very responsible teacher. a great class...........................................................................
A very knowledgeable teacher with many forms of teaching. Taught me a large amount of solutions for a single math problem, explaining which way was faster, which way was easier to understand. A truly remarkable teacher.
He gives great notes and you never feel stupid asking him a question so he's definitely a teacher you want!
He's the best math teacher I've ever had in high school. He is willing to provide help when you need it and he explain everything very clearly. You are in luck if you get him.
Super nice teacher. I love how hes always free for help and lets you redo tests :P id work better in class if i could use an ipod though... ;)
Absolutely amazing!! He has the best notes you'll ever get for math, he teaches at a good steady pace, and he's always available for help!
best math teacher I've ever had, went from a C- to a B
Best math teacher I've ever had. His teaching method is very helpful and easy to learn.
One of the best math teachers ever. Very clear explanations and doesn't make you feel stupid when you ask questions.
Not only the best math teacher i had but the best teacher @ mcroberts. His lessons are extremely clear, he offers help all the time and he is great at one on one help, and his tests are very straight forward and easy if you do ALL the homework questions he gives out. The test question are almost always the homework questions but with different #'s. I went from 80% in grade 11 math to 96% in 12!
I swear he's the best teacher ever. Has his whole class planned out very well, and constantly asks if we need any help on the questions. Always willing to answer questions. Very very clear in his teaching. He only gets annoyed at the annoying people, which is fair.
I can actually understand what is being taught for once.
Best math teacher @ mcroberts. Explains carefully but throughly, unlike the supposed math guru, mr. Harwood =="
GOOD TEACHER..it is easy to understand what he teaches in class..but too strict about cellphones..LOL
Always smiling :). Unlike MrWong, he doesnt sneak in some questions that he did not teach. Listen in class and you'll ace the test! His teaching is very clear!
AWESOME NOTES! However the classes are a bit boring. And with the desks separated, you can't really talk to anyone in class. Im used to not doing homework when i understand it, so having to do homework every class is annoying too. But overall, great teacher. I understand the materials!
One of the nicest teachers at HMS, doesn't seem approachable but he will always help you with homework troubles in his spare time. All his explanations are well explained and meticulously reviewed before each test. As long as you listen in his class you'll do well.
Best Notes Ever! Not the easiest tests but he's no sneak. What's on the test is what you learnt.
Very nice teacher! Although he could be "bashful" if you irritate him too much lol (rarely occurs). He explains concepts rilil well by using examples from txtbooks. It seems like he memorized all the definitions of the difficult math vocab lol. But it's rilli hard to get a high mark in his class compared to Mr Marr's...like a 93% in Cruikshank's is a 98% in Marr's. BTW....HE IS NED FLANDERS!!!!!
he's a good teacher but he's not good for getting high marks. Marr is better for that. But if you're not that smart, he can be great cause he always answers stupid questions.
Mr. Cruickshank teachs everything in a quick and concise manner,albeit most of his examples come from the textbook. He gives out plenty of help and does his utmost to ensure his students understand concepts. He's flexible as he gives out a retest and doesn't check homework but for completion. Although many test questions are found in the homework and his examples, so rarely is anything unfamiliar.
Boring at times, but his tests are quite easy and fair. He likes to do math examples that are amusing. I.e. he asks us what is the probabilty of getting 10 sixes if a person rolled 40 dices. He then says, I could use a TI calculator, but that's no fun. Then he actually takes out 40 dices and drops the whole bag on to the floor. I only had him for math 12, but I started with 60% with another math 12 teacher, transfered and ended up getting 95% with Mr. C
heZ a very very boring teacher.. hiZ classes are boring.. but he iz SUPER helpful... i actually fall asleep in hiZ classes...but real COOL
If you want to take Math 12, take it with Cruickshank. He is helpful and clear; at least he's better than Marr. His classes can be boring but definitely easy!
i got 96% in his class. Go to all his classes. Do all your homework (it helps for marks) Best teacher ive ever had in math. Take notes and do excercises!
Love him! so clear. Boring but not the stereotypical math teacher. he explains everything so nicely.
will answer your question no matter what. i've been fortunate enough to never see him angry. much more effective than harwood but not as fun(ny).
A super clear teacher. Will teach you all that you need to know. Class is a bit boring, but go in expecting to learn. Really nice and super helpful.
a little dull at times, but he's a really good teacher
awesome teaching methods, very explanatory and answers even the dumbest question
