Why does my calculus teacher dislike me so much? Am I extremely hideous?
Topic: Should teachers give students too much homework
July 21, 2019 / By Bithia Question:
I'm a junior and I'm currently taking AP Calculus BC. I understand that many students love to complain about their teachers, but I have a legitimate reason for disliking my teacher. He is lazy, rude, hates his job, and doesn't want to help his students learn. The only reason why he hasn't been fired yet is that he is extremely witty and many kids love him for his humor.
He is insensitive and does not encourage his students to ask questions. I asked him about a homework question today, he blatantly ridicules me by saying, "What if I told you that you should already know how to do this problem? Are you too lazy to learn?" I told him that no one was quite as intelligent as he was and that maybe he could spread his knowledge by showing me how to do the problem. My class laughed.
He dislikes me because he either calls me by my last name or points at me and says, "YOU!" He calls the other female students by their first names. He's been discouraging me from asking questions so often lately that I've stopped raising my hand in class completely.
I have an A in the class because I watch instructional videos on youtube. My teacher only teaches for half the class and jokes around with students during the other half. His tests are extremely difficult and he doesn't bother going over them after he returns them to my class. Also, he doesn't even bother checking my homework. He automatically gives me 100s, which irritates me because he looks over my classmates' homework.

This guy sounds EXACTLY to the T like my old math teacher. This is guy isn't named Lucien Power's by any chance, is he??? Well if so, then my dear go transfer schools! lol Seriously though, with my old teacher he would never help and always make jokes and then yell at us 5 minutes later for not being finished yet. If you asked for help he'd simply tell you to ask the kid next to you. He was a complete a*s. Talk to your parents about it and maybe then can send complaints to the school, but in all honestly, nothing you can do is going to change him. Because of my teachers idiotic ways last year, I got 51% in math. At my new school I actually LIKE math. I'm getting 83%. I NEVER got over 65% with my old teacher and now I almost have an A in math!!!! Seriously, switch math classes or schools or something but thats just ridiculous. I feel your pain.

Originally Answered: Which is harder: Pre Calculus or Business Pre Calculus (formerly Finite Math)?
From the description, Business Pre Calculus covers more material:
Topics introduced include matrices, linear programming, population growth and math of finance. Special topics may include systems of non-linear equations, probability and counting, statistics, graph theory, and rational and logistic functions.
However, difficulty depends on how in-depth they cover the extra material. You'll have to learn stats and linear programming at the same time, and those are not easy topics. So, just basically from workload, I would guess that Business Pre Calculus is more difficult.
portion of the AP curriculum is to coach you for college and improve into self sufficient, in case you have a situation with him, confront him approximately it. If he refuses that can assist you you pass to the thought threatening to call the college board on your district. If the thought does not do something then call the college board.

Quit stealth-bragging. Poor you, your teacher gives you A's, he must hate you. Yeah, it's probably because you're hideous.

And we're supposed to know.....how? How do you expect people who don't even know who the hell you are on the internet to know why your math teacher doesn't like you.

I love America to and would like to see it better. One real item that is hurting our image around the world is that we don't take care of our problems. Look at a few. We have Katrina which is such an unfinished sore spot. Judges are soft on the laws by that I mean, they try to write their own laws and interrpt them they way they want. That's a serious serious problem. Congress can't seem to get the most serious issues passed to help our country. They fight more than they work together to make a better America. I know people can say our country has a freedom of religion and it should not be mentioned in schools. Social values should come from home, but we are foolish to think they always do, so where will our children get these moral and social values? They should get them as part of their school subjects in school. Cathaolic schools teach religion. My son went to a Cathlic school and he is Methodist, but they didn't cram their religion down his throat, but they taught social values and they had to go to church every now and then. He set there and prayed and even snook up and took communion a lot. No one said a word. HA. The groups like the UCLA is tearing out country to pieces.
Empathy for others. The younger generation don't all know what it means to be empathic toward one another. Take and don't give seems to be the norm. I can walk down a sidewalk and hear kids using profanic words and think nothing about it. They just don't care if they say the f'''word around an elderly lady walking by them.(use elderly for an example) but it's really around anyone that this goes on every day.
I believe America lost it's best face when our wonderful judges and supreme court upheld those who struck the word
"God and In God We Trust "from public buildings, schools, to name a few.AND NO PRAYERS IN SCHOOLS.
Common sense and logic has been substituted with the opposite and it's pathetic. On the TV the other night I was watching one our famous commentators who was trying to interview an extremist and he couldn't make his points because the extremist just kept running his mouth. As a result, the entire show was a failure. This is an example of lack of respect. This happens throughout our daily activities.
You see I haven't mentioned a word about Bush or War
Unless Americans wake up and start thinking about what they (parents and caregivers)can do to encourage children to learn values and go to church, and respect for one another and help one another, we face problems that will soon be irrereversible(sp). Not all judges are totally on the ball, especially when one or two can let a molester out on the streets. Unless our laws are enforced fairly we will never reverse some of the wrongs that have been done that has affected a lot of people. Not admitting certain items as evidence in a trial because of a technicality is wrong.
Our country was made what it is from immigrants who came to this country years ago, but they didn't come here with a sack of illegal drugs to sell our kids. They didn't come here illegally. Those who do should all be sent back where they come from. I believe immigration should be halted completely until we clean house. First get rid of all the ones who are criminals first, Those illegals who are working and not getting into trouble, maybe they could work their normal jobs and pay back a fine. i.e. community service. I crossed a brige the other day that is so rusty and it is one of the main bridges between two states. This would be a good job for them to paint this bridge. Our infrastructure has gone to pot. I am tired of all these pot holes in the main expressways. I am tired of seeing litter all along the roads and grass grow and not being mowed.
I could go on and on, but I hope I have given you a few things that are negative about this country. and what needs to be done to improve to the Great USA. It's the still the greatest country in the world.
