Most Helpful Review

Professor Elman is the best math professor I have had here at UCLA. For the honors 115AH class, he explains the techniques of proofs and repeatedly reiterate key points in proofs. The homework assignments are also very doable. The take home midterm was challenging but not impossible especially with the amount of time that was given. He also gives extra hours for the midterms and finals. This is definitely the honors math upper div to take.

Prof Gieseker lives up to his fame as a mathematician, but also to his fame as someone who is too smart to teach.

Overall great professor. He seems to be very smart and his lectures are clear, even though he does have a French accent. Can be really funny sometimes. His tests usually have either easy or hard questions; he doesn't really have any medium ones.

Most Helpful Review

Professor Merkurjev is not a good teacher when it comes to undergraduate level classes. He's one of the best minds in algebra, so I don't think it occurred to him that an introductory linear algebra class could be hard to anyone, even if it is honors. Because of that, he would come into class, quickly go through the theorems on the board as if they were simple and obvious facts, and then leave. At the beginning, I tried following what he was saying as he lectured, but the material takes time to understand and he was sprinting through it, so I had to just copy down what he said and try to understand it later.

In all, the class was hard but I learned a lot from it. That came from putting a lot of time in at home, though, not from the professor. If I could take the class again, I would try to learn the material before going to class so I could get something out of his lectures. But if I could just teach myself the material like that, why would I need to take the class?
