I agree with all the other comments here, you’ll first be intimidated coming into his class but later come to appreciate how much of a great teacher he is. He learns each and every one of his student’s names and even reaches out to the more shy/lowkey people like me lol. He calls out people during lessons to answer questions, so be ready. Other then that, he’s an amazing teacher and really cares for his students.
Mr. Lanktree was amazing. I had him for HL math back in 2015-2016. I was a pretty lazy student until I entered his class. His style of teaching made me adopt better studying habits. He may seem scary and whatnot, but he really cares about his students.
I love Mr. Lanktree! He was literally my favourite teacher last semester, and he actually cared. He wants to help you get the best mark you can, so if you need help go to him! I did amazing in his class and if you put in the work and ask questions, you will too, even though he is hard.
He is probably the best math teacher out there. His hilarious sense of humor brings life to a rote subject like math. For me personally, he didn't teach all that well but he is an amazing person! He is an extremely fair marker and wants you to do well in the class - not many teachers like that left in the school. He is not strict at all and gives you an easy time in class. I'm going to miss Mr. Lanktree as this is my favorite teacher.
Possibly one of my favourite math teachers ever. I am actually a teacher now, so if you ever read this Mr. Lanktree, would love to catch up with you. (you let me teach trig with finger puppets) email : [email protected]
I've had Mr. Lanktree for two years including 2 semesters of SL Math and this man is simply the best math teacher out there. His dry cynical sense of humour adds life to a boring subject like math in fact i really look forward to this class everyday. He's very smart so be sure to go to him with any questions. Some people find him rude/harsh but thats what he wants you think hes a real softie on the inside. Amazing math teacher who challenges you but teaches you well enough to face that challenge
He is the BEST math teacher I've ever had! Yes, his sense of humour can be harsh at times, but he is a very funny person who likes to make his lessons more entertaining. He seems intimidating at first, but he does what he can to help his students out. He teaches clearly, but he is a hard-marker on tests. Just be sure to do ALL the homework and you should do fine!
You'll be kinda scared in the first month or so of the class. You might curse him for his marking, but you'll come to appreciate it later on in the semester as he'll make you work hard and earn your marks, which may not always be the best. But no worries, he's an amazing teacher who knows his stuff and will help you when you need it (though he's kind of hard to approach, because he's very sarcastic and sometimes you don't know if he's telling the truth or joking around).
Study hard and pass.
In my opinion, he's the best math teacher out there. Sure, he can be a really hard marker, but his teaching methods are amazing, and the amount of knowledge he has inside of him in absolutely incredible. When you first start out with him, you may be a little intimidated and scared (like I was), but in the end you'll realize how great of a teacher he is and how amazing his sense of humor is. As long as you pay attention in his class and complete all the practice work, you're good for the tests.
I was lucky enough to have Mr. Lanktree in grade 4 and 5. I'm 30 years old now and I tell people all the time that I remember AND use more things from the two years I spent in his class than all the rest of my school years combined. I remember times table speed tests, memorizing countries on the board (with the consequence of push-ups for mistakes), electrical circuits, chess and on and on. Thank you Mr. Lanktree :)
one of Turner's best math teacher! Great sense of humour (if you have one). very understanding and is ok with you using methods he hasn't taught.
He teaches very good it is just that sometimes his voice puts you to sleep(not really). He is fun but he likes to make fun of students so dont get offended
Looks intimidating but is actually funny since hes monotone and spews out sarcastic jokes :D
Awesome teacher. Very sarcastic and funny but he'll teach
He is a nice guy. However, his tests and quizzes are REALLY hard. Also, he needs to speak up a bit since you cannot hear him at the back of the class.
i used to call him MRS lanktree by accident...lol jokes....but he never got made he made fun of me after...but it was funny
he gave me a good IB predicted .. he taught well enough for us to grasp the concept. he is WAY BETTER than mr. young GO LANKTREE !! :D
I love this teachhherr!! best teach ervverrrr we had soo much fun in his mathhh classss!!:) lovedit:) and i understood wat he was sayn:) woott
Mr. Lanktree seems mean but he's actually quite nice. He gets all happy-looking if you ask him about his kids. If you do badly in his class, he'll look for ways to give you pity marks.
This guy is the worst teacher i ever had. I partically learnt everything by myself or with the help of other students. He lessons are like 15 minutes long. I barely learnt anything.
I got the best marks I could ever get, in his class... well I never listened to what he says.
Likes to say he wants the students to fail, thinks of hard questions for tests, thought he is helpful when u ask him for help... :)
actually, i think he is a good teacher.. i learned a lot from him! plus, it's always so much fun to be in his class... he is funny and very well educated.. yeah.. i'm a fan of him!
He needs new teaching strategies. I dont learn anything. But for doing as bad as i should have done he is an easy marker. he doesnt explain anything
he is way tooo sarcastic sometimes...its scary..:| but he's a gud math teacher :D
extremely intelligent... almost nerdy. wildly uninhibited almost to the point of rudeness but hes funny. awesome guy!!!
Since Grade 7 an awesome entity to the School System! Amazing taste in Poetry. Edgar Forever! Amazing Guitar! You taught me amazing things and some Math too!
Lanktree's the coolest math etacher ever. He jokes around so much, I hope I get him again. He's wickeder than chocolate cake
