Quarter Taken: N/A Submitted Feb. 10, 2015 Grade Received: N/A

She is now Heather Dallas. Really disagreeable instructor. She never has office hours, never replies to emails, has poorly written homework assignments with ambiguities all over the place, and spends way too much time in class talking humblebragging and namedropping famous education professionals rather than actually teaching us Secondary Methods for teaching mathematics. We "learn" so much theory that we have already learned before in the prerequisites to this class at the expense of learning actually how to lesson plan, how to engage students, specific aspects of the common core, and so on. Unfortunately this course is required for the math for teaching major and is part of the teacher credentialing program so if you want to get your credential as a UCLA undergrad you're shit out of luck. Wait and apply to TEP so you can take Jaime Park's grad level Secondary Methods course instead and actually learn something.

Like we spent a fucking 5 weeks on non-Euclidean geometry in Math 105B even though everyone had taken Math 123 or Math 120A where these concepts had been addressed rigorously. TEACH US HOW TO LESSON PLAN. jesus
