Professor Andrews is among the best math instructors at UCLA. He has a genuine enthusiasm for the material he teaches and attempts to build an intuitive understanding of calculus beyond computation and formulas. Very fair grading, you get points for reasoning and don't lose too much for silly calculation errors. Both midterms are about as difficult as the harder homework problems, the final is definitely much harder than everything else but that's to be expected so make sure to study well for it. Office hours and discussion sections are actually worth your time, I learned a lot! Math 31B with him was definitely memorable. Lesson- Ace the midterms, get 100s on them cause the final will probably be difficult.

Ascenbrenner is a really nice guy. The first day of the class, he tells you that the class is curved, and that scares the hell out of you because you know only a certain number of people will be getting A's and some people will definitely fail. But as you move along, it's not all that bad. He does a lot of proofs to try and get you to understand the math so you don't have to memorize any formulas. His tests were not really all that bad. I remember getting a question on the second midterm completely wrong because I flipped a minus sign to a plus sign, and I still got 9/10 points. Overall in the class, I had a test average of about 87% or 88%, and about 90% on the homework, and I ended up getting an A-. You'll end up learning a lot from him, and he's not really a tough professor at all. I do recommend him, even though I heard Park was easier. (P.S., the curve ALWAYS helps you)

Overall, this professor was decent a did a good job teaching the material. Although my background in math was mediocre at best, she really did try and teach calculus in a way that was easy to understand. In addition, she also made her tests as clear and concise as possible and graded the class on a curve. I would take another class with her again.

Erkao is ADORABLE. He is extremely FOB-y and he wears cargo shorts with crocs every day and I love him because he makes me smile because how cute he is (I even saw him eating at Feast one time). However, he is not a great teacher. I am not great at math and his teaching style didn't work well with me (too many proofs not enough examples even though we never had to know proofs for exams) so I would say take him if you want someone who will make you smile everyday, not because you want an A (unless you have already taken BC which the vast majority of my class had so be prepared for them to have an advantage)

This professor is EXTREMELY EXTREMELY difficult. As you all know, Math 31A was just a review. Biskup expects you to be a master of 31A so when you first arrive to class he throws at you insanely difficult homework which can only be done if you go to his office hours. And you can't take notes at those office hours. The medians on the midterms were around 40 and there are 3 of them. Although, this class is only 4 units, it takes some serious effort to pass it. If you do decide to take this class, do the homework. Know how to do EVERY SINGLE problem without any aid and go to his office hours. Do not make the same mistakes i did.

THE ONLY PROFESSOR YOU SHOULD NEVER TAKE A CLASS WITH. TRUST ME.

I'm a math major and I had to work my ass off to salvage a B. Plus, the guy is a dick. On the first midterm, like 50% of the class got an A- or more, so he announced that too many people did well so he was gonna make the second midterm MUCH tougher so that people wouldn't do well.

He is the ONLY professor I have ever met who WANTS the students to fail. Honestly, I have ZERO respect for this man and I would never wish this hell upon anyone.

Math 31A and Math 31B with him.

I got at least 3 or 4 past Brown midterms or finals before each midterm and final in this class and the ones I took with Brown this year (10F 11W) have been much much harder. He does recycle the type of problems but just makes them a lot harder or puts them together somehow. It isnt impossible though, I studied for 3 weeks straight for the final and got a B on it. I rarely went to lecture because he would spend most of the time doing proofs, and would end his lectures halfway through sections and also he would teach you the material with the hardest example of that problem he could come up with instead of showing us easier ones and progressing from there. I used the site patrickjmt to teach me all about series and other info I wasnt sure about and I was familiar with the material from taking AP Calc BC in high school. Also study your ass off for the final because its 50 percent and by far the hardest test. I learned that the hard way by going from a solid A to a C+ from the final in 31A.
