Mr Battaglia gives math a whole new meaning. He is such a great person. He is funny and his teaching style is one in which is easy to follow and understand. He is always willing to help his students if they need it and his tests are easy (if you do the review). Also one of the first things he tells you is that he gets to school at 6:30 every morning if you need help before class. Hope to have you again sir, it was an honor being in your class. :)

Hands down best math teacher I've had. As long as you pay attention and do the work it's very easy to get a good mark in his classes. He prints everything off for you, which is really nice. Funny guy and super knowledgeable. Not sure how many more years he has before retirement, but definitely 100% worth switching into his class if you can!

I hated math in grade 9, in grade 10 it was one of my favourite subjects! If you just pay attention and do the work everything makes sense. He brought my math mark up to an 80 from a 70 in grade 9. Best teacher I've had in high school so far!!

he was an amazing teacher! he brought me up from a 67 to an 80, plus i was never good at math. his tests were always the same but i hated when he asked us irrelevant questions (ex. how high is the giraffe compared to the height of the arch).

Knows what he is talking about, but doesn't always explain things well, if you ask a question he looks at you like your crazy. Marks easily though.

I've hadBattaglia for 2D math and gr 12 calculus, he has a different teaching method than other teachers in the math department - it takes a bit of time to get used to, but he is extremely knowledgable and his notes are so helpful! Tests are fair too

Loved him as a teacher! He's one of my favourites. Always trusted me, but hated that I was always ahead of him while he was teaching a lesson. Marks easy, and is great to joke around with.

He is a mathematical genius. He really knows his stuff. He marks tests fairly fast and is generous with marks. Not too good at helping the mathematically challenged. He always leaves class and doesn't check homework. He thinks he is funny which is funny in itself.

Always, ALWAYS in the bathroom. People who are good at math like him, everyone else does not. Also, he's not very good at explaining things.

Mr. B is a good man, very nice, and a mathematical genius. Not to mention he speaks about 5 languages, I however, am dreadful at mathematics, but, if you are good at it you'll probably like him.

not a very helpful teacher. his idea of taking up homework is just writing the answer down with no explanations.
