He's kind of odd but in a funny way. Besides that, really good teacher and you'll do fine if you pay attention. (N-no Shelly)
He's a bit odd, but he's just trying to connect with this generation. I do question his sanity when he randomly shares what he has for breakfast in the mornings. I needed extra help from a tutor while in his class, but I do appreciate the teaching experience that he has in IB math.
Great teacher, makes pre-calc like elementary math.
Awesome teacher. Teaches a tough course although really knows what he's doing and wants you to succeed even if he can be a bit tough. Funny guy too and makes the course a lot more enjoyable than what you'd expect from IB Math.
Art Penning is the best math teacher I have ever had. He helped me understand math and I passed my exam with a high mark because of him. Thank you
Mr. Penning is probably the worst teacher I have ever had. Naturally, I struggle at math so it only makes sense that I had a hard time in his class, but he made no attempts to help me or the other students struggling in his class and then got upset with us when we didn't know what we were doing. And for the record, he is an extremely self centered and rude man.
Mr. Penning is the best teacher at Westwood in my opinion. He has taught me everything I need to know in my Pre-Calc class and I understand even the most strenuous concepts. Thank you Shelly!
I feel that Mr.Penning was a knowlegable teacher with a great method of teaching. But if you do not understand something, you are in a heap of trouble. The only option is to either seek a "friend," go
Had him for grade 9 math. He was difficult then, but it really helped come IB pre-cal. Really good teacher, though odd at times. Neato Mosquito, anyone?
Great teacher. Helped me immensely. Easier when you grasp math... otherwise he might not like you. My fave math teacher ever. Take IB Calc totally not as hard as you'd think. Penning ROCKS!!! lol :)
Penning started out teaching during my 9-12 stint... It took him a year or two to really get the hang of things, but he was a good guy and a great teacher, like a good friend you could turn to.
Best teacher in the school, by far. Always there to help when you need it.
At the time when I had him several years ago, I screwed around a lot and blamed it on him. He really wasn't a bad guy. He really tried to get through to me, and help me, but I didn't let him. Good guy
Avoid this one! Totally irresponsible, tests uncovered material, expects way too much of students. Apparently not a good volleyball coach either...
So Mr. Penning is the best teacher in our school. Math is so much fun because of him! I heart math.
I didn't like Mr. Penning cause he thinks hes smart but hes really not.
X=-b +/- squareroot of b squared -4ac all over 2a yay! great math teacher, best in the school
funny funny teacher! its weird to say, but penning makes math actually fun.
x is equal o - b plus or minus the square root............
