Cannot understand the concepts clearly and saying random stuff that makes no connection to the lesson. Homeworks are irrelevant to the daily lesson (from my experience).

I'll be honest, before coming to his class, I was very scared that I would fail his class and learn absolutely nothing. However, luckily, he's not as bad as most of his reviews say. He does do some weird stuff in class (swinging a bowling ball from the ceiling), but he has good intentions. In short, he's a great guy but a bad teacher. Most of my friends complain about low marks but to be honest, physics is a complex subject, and you have to do the homework to understand it. Oh and take notes.

Very fun teacher in every aspect having to do with character, you're gonna enjoy the class time. But man doesn't know shitake mushrooms how to teach physics in an understandable manner. We were assigned a project that had absolutely nothing to do with the curriculum. If you get this guy and expect a teacher that cares about you or your understanding of the content...run. If you do get him the best way to survive his class is to constantly be asking for clarification and help, he's hella smart.

Spends half the class "making us think" with abstract questions that only serve to confuse most students before actually beginning to teach anything. Even when he does teach, he's scatterbrained and often gets his info mixed up and has to revisit topics once he realizes. Again, confusing. Class difficulty varies wildly based on class averages so if you're not good at physics stuck with geniuses you're screwed. TL;DR he doesn't teach. Learn everything from the tb. Good luck.

If you are in his class, just sit down (maybe listen to music secretly) and smile. I can only speak from my grade 9 experience but if you sit in the back he wont bother you. You can fake working during class, the only things he grades are exams, projects and unit covers. The exams are confusing, you can fool him by writing a lot of paragraphs with big words. Take into account that he likes to be in charge and he walks around the classroom when giving pages of the CP or the textbook. Worst jokes!

Great guy overall, but if you want to learn physics, you are probably better off reading and studying from the 2 textbooks he uses. if you did well in his grade 9 or 10 class and expect it to be the same for physics, it wont happen. He strives to keep the class average at 73%

Overall, Mr.Keehn is a great teacher but you have to make sure you ask him questions you don't understand or he won't know you're having trouble. His tests are long so you have to really understand the information and study well because they are very time consuming. However, once you get used to it, the tests are fairly easy (but you have to study).

Mr Keehn is so funny, we all look forward to his class! He is a great guy and teacher. We constantly do experiments and hands on activities which is so much more fun than textbook questions. If you need extra help he is always available and he can help explain. He explains science using examples which is good. You're lucky if you have him.

Cool physics teacher who tells really bad jokes. Mr. Keehn is no regular teacher playing by the rules, teaches from the book, and gives everyday homework. He is more then that, gives his heart out and

A teacher that will walk into a door in front of the class... i don't know if that was anything related to physics or if he wanted to demonstrate but the rating pretty much sums him up.

For someone teaching physics, I'd say he did a really good job. Physics is pretty hard to explain, especially to people who never took it before. Doesn't really check homework well but works both ways

He was a really funny and likable guy, told a lot of jokes & stories that made science bearable. His homework checking methods are questionable & his smartboard technique is lacking.
