He does teach us but he keeps repeating the same for thing for a couple of lessons then moves on. Also, when he explains things it isn't clear the first time and we need to constantly ask him again and agian.
he gets off topic so easily....he also picks on certain students in the class all the time. Sure he's a awesome teacher to have but you wont be learning much science off him
Good Teacher :)
He is a great teacher although he can go a bit off topic sometimes he is good teacher.
You can not learn a thing off him. His teaching method is to copy off the board and the ratio of doing that to doing experiments is 100:1.
1) He mumbles too much and most the time can't be bothered explaining 2) He keeps wandering into other subjects without linking its relevance to what we are learning He talks to other people/teachers without teaching midway in class
goes off topic so easily and doesnt teach you anything bout science
omg the post below me is hilarious! well i'd like to add my two cents in saying that this guy is professionally inept, being 'cool' and 'amazing' cannot make up for unplanned lessons and lazy sloppy
Mr Mander was my teacher years ago at another school. Because of his religious views, he neglected to teach us about evolution and reproduction. Our class couldn't answer whole sections of our exam.
Amazing. A true man of God, a pleasure to be educated by
Some people on this site are just mean. Mr Mander is AWESOME. You cannot blame anyone but yourself if you fail. Two thumbs up for Mander :D
He's a bad teacher in that, if you muck around he'll let you get away with it.. but, if you actually listen, ask questions when you need to and pay attention to his awesome notes, youll do really well
sup mr. mander....how's life??? i m 1 of ur fans........ur sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo cool. just joks..ppl this techa is a gangsta
Despite what people say, he is actually a good teacher- i had him last year and i absolutly HATE science but i still passed with a merit just because i found his classes FUN
Mr Manders da man ive onli been in his class for 1 year but i have learned heaps, i especially enjoyin doin prcticles and blowin shyte up ---- G.N.A 1002 ( the guys who always sit ad the bak)
Good guy.. funny, pretty cool and helpful but dozes off sometimes :P if you know what i mean.. hes prolly gona read this sumtime :D im in his 6th form physics class.. Its alrite aye :P
This guy is an awesome teacher! Very funny and sarcastic(sometimes a little dry). He does loads of experiments; burning things, making things explode etc etc. Sometimes wastes too much time.
Hes awesome! he makes science funni but he can go of the track n talk abt stuff dats totatlly not related 2 science sumtimes!!
The only way to pass NCEA in his class is to study on your own. Very nice person but wont really teach you.He does cool experiments he is a very practical type of person - watch his videos.
This teacher can't teach!! Hardly anyone in the class got a high score in their test because he didn't each us some of the stuff in the test!
hessssssss soooooooooo funnnnnnnnnnnny----------but needs to go to teachers college
he's cool, but i learnt nothing off him in third form.
hes a kool az teacher. he showed us dat kool as banana video!!!!!!!!! yay! and hes got that stylish coat wif da rocket on the back ... LOL
Ur lucky if ur in his class, he must teacher through osmosis or somthing, cause he spends barely any time on work, and lots of time doing fun activites, but still all the students, even the not so smart ones, do great. Mr mander is great
Haha! Mr. Man-der(hehe if you actually say it like this it's funny!!!) Anyway....wat was I gonna say...yeah! Mr. Mander is COOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (read the next rating 'cos i've got more to say...)
A cool dude, he has the brains, just doesnt teach much. But a very fun class. Dont worry all his students do well no matter how much time is wasted.
Should be on mythbusters! very entertaining but doesnt teach much useful info regarding our course.
