Extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The only downside is that he does assign (and checks) A LOT of homework. However, homework only counts for 10% of your mark and showing work on your homework only counts for about 20% of that 10%. Therefor, you can just copy your answers off the back of the textbook and only lose a small amount of marks for doing so.
Horrible teacher, he would spend the whole day talking about the lesson, and as soon as you leave the door he tells you, that you have 25 questions and a booklet for homework due next class.
He also only checks homework, when he knows nobody does it.
If you get him transfer out!
He is not a good teacher. He's very confusing and does not teach properly. I used to do very well in math but when I got him, my mark dropped a lot. He doesn't teach anything besides getting you to copy notes all class long. Also he's annoying.
He is a very great teacher, i currently have him as Math 8 Honours. he is very humorous and a person who knows his numbers
basically if you care about learning math or your grade at all he gives you tons of opportunities to both learn and improve your mark if you're struggling
Awesome teacher. Had him from gr 8-9 and he taught us everything we needed to be ready in future math curriculum. Honestly the best teacher I had in Highschool. He made sure the whole class understood and was very fair with marking and adjusting test dates.
Mr. Chien is a great teacher in many ways, as he is smart, humorous and able to explain/clarify questions very well. Most likely you will have him for 2 years if you are always in honours, and it is a great experience! He has many cool and fun ways to have you learn, including jokes and games. His homework amount is sort of insane, and can leave you up until midnight, but NEVER, and I repeat NEVER, get him mad (he rarely does though), because if you do, be prepared to die a horrible death. :)
Fun teacher, tells a lot of jokes and such. But the main issue is the amount of homework and the difficulty of >SOME< of his exams, especially if you miss out on one piece of important information. Normally I'd rate him 9/11 but that's just plane wrong so I'll go with a standard 6.5/10.
He is a hilarious teacher that makes learning math (oh how i dare to say this) FUN!
Best (and only) math teacher I ever had.
Lots of homework.
Genius. Funny. (puns included).
I just got him this year! I heard he was a strict teacher, but he is pretty cool!
Very Nice teacher, i might have disaapointed him
He's extremely funny and a very nice teacher. Although we only ever write notes in class, I find it very enjoyable because the class jokes around and he plays along.
he's nice, but he's giving alot of tests lately and not enough time to study.
I had Math H with him, and I really liked it. He really makes sure everyone gets what hes teaching (or at least tries very hard). too bad i didn't get him this year
Very very nice :) Cares about the students and he's very clear about his teachings :)
he's got the teaching stuff down pat. but is too close-minded and way too sensitive to remarks to religion
in HIS CLASS, PPL ACTUALLY WOULD WANT TO LEARN. SO IF UR NOT PLANNING ON GETTING A HIGH A, DONT EVEN BOTHER WITH BEING IN SUCH A GOOD TEACHERS CLASS. THIS GUY IS GREAT
He teacher very well and is ahead of his game (yes even in Halo )
I think it's just me having math problems I should start working harder....Mr.Chien rules
to be honest..i never really listened in his honor classes,just take notes, it helps, but more because that he actually checks notes once in a while..and hmk too, it was pretty easy..
I hate him. His notes don't make sense when you look at them to study, he does nothing fun. All we do is take notes, and then do more test on the notes that don't make sense. =.=
Awesome teacher--I've just realized that when I've had him for two years, and then suddenly got a different one. His honours tests are really hard, but he teaches well and his notes are fantastic.
Actually checks homework, so you should definately do it. People say his tests are hard, but I didn't think it was. I did well because of bonus marks, but I never really listened in class.
He's a nice teacher. Gives hard tests and lots of homework but its easy to ask him for help.
easy but i don't like him always checking homework!!
Had him for honours and his tests were really hard. But he explains everything really well, and his notes are great. I also loved how we never started class on time.
Makes me laugh sometimes & gav me over 100% in third term, even tho I don't remember earning bonus marks. Gives hard tests for honours class, but gives good notes & tries his best to explain problems.
I thought he was funny. Owns a X-box and really teaches us math and explains it well. He always walks us through problems we have trouble solving and is really patient.
If you like XBOX or HALO, this is the math teacher for you. Gives lots of opportunities for bonuses, and makes math class really fun. Awesome teacher. =D
the x-box teacher.... hes pretty good... compared to most teachers he gives quite a bit bonus.... lots of contest stuff, so if u dont like contest u r screwed
He's a really helpful teacher. He explains stuff until we get the material--though its hard. It's for out own good I guess.
I guess I just like him cuz I was one of his top students... I had one really bad test and he didn't take off all the marks he couldve...
He gave me 6% bonus marks in term 1 (Not the bonus marks on tests, just pure bonus marks) , 10% in term 2 and 4% in term 3. He's kinda corny tho
Great teacher. Though he sometimes teaches some hard stuff. Have him for Mathcounts! Get prepared for contests and get food...
Mr. Chien is a great teacher. Helps you a lot on difficult problems. If it wasn't for him I wouldn't have any success on math contests.
He's an awesome teacher and is easy to get along with. He's clear, and tries to understand his students.
i think hes a great techer. hes very understanding. and i think he likes me as a student. i kinda dont do my homework.he trys his best to teach us .thank you
Er...yes. I like Mr Chien, even if the questions are hard....he's easy to talk to. And nice. Nice.
Hes a great teachers. He really likes me, and he picks on me often too hehe..... But a great teacher.
Even though he gives homework every class, that is good for our own good. In math, if one don't do work and practice one will never learn! Very nice teacher ^_^
he wants t give hard tests, where in u need to figure it out and involves so many step to get it. and i hate it homework every class and he's gonna check it.
