He is by far one of my favorite professors at UCLA. I was terrified to take his class because there were so many negative reviews, but I took my chance and he was a phenomenal professor. He is so friendly and caring. He is also very passionate about teaching, and you can see that through his lecture. This class was at 8am and many of us were tired, he would tell a joke every class to try to keep us awake. He went step by step in explaining concepts and he would refer back to precalc if some students were lost. He would give practice midterms and the practice midterms would almost be the same thing as the real midterm. He allowed us to use scientific calculators and even allowed us to have a small cheat sheet. Even though the midterms were pretty easy, the final was truly a curve ball, it was so hard. In his OH he was very helpful and he tried to get to know every student that attended. I ended up walking out of the class with a B- and I was happy because I ended up retaking 3A. GREAT PROFESSOR!

I was skeptical of taking him for 32B because of the previous reviews, but I figured since they're old, he might have new methods of teaching. Though he had a few interesting blurbs about math history, I realized that all the reviews had been true. Lectures were rather erratic - one day he questioned whether we knew how to add vectors, and another day, he told us that we were all electrical engineers and should be able to understand this when the second midterm scores came out low. He tended to be behind on lectures and had to do a three hour review session (which was really a three hour lecture). Final seemed to have little to none connection to what was discussed. Would not recommend.
