Well Bateman was actually a pretty good teacher. The main problem with this course is that if you miss a class or dont understand something the book really does not help that much at all. I had to ask the T.A. a lot for help. Also the homeworks are pretty hard but short, I needed to visit the T.A. a lot about those. The tests are actually really hard, except wasn't too bad but the average on all of them was around 50 so he curves them nicely. I would focus on getting as many questions fully right as possible instead of bullshitting as many answers as possible. So quality over volume kind of deal, not too much partial credit.

I took Math 61 with Professor Butler last quarter (Fall 08)--and I have to say, it was one of the best math classes I have ever taken at UCLA. Professor Butler is very organized in lectures, clearly knows the topic really well, and is really funny in lectures. Sure, sometimes the lectures could get a bit dry, but hey, it's math. If Professor Butler is teaching any of your required courses, I strongly recommend him as your top choice.

Okay, listen up: I don't usually write reviews for anyone, but THIS GUY made me question my entire existence and any future in STEM. I love discrete math and the material is actually very interesting, but this guy literally ruins it all. Things covered in class =/= what is on exams. I believe the average fluctuated at like around 45%, if not less. His tests are ridiculously hard, lectures are unclear and not very engaging, although it is visible that he is really trying his best. James Cameron, I love you and your cat, but your exams are SO UNFAIR and made me and very smart kids in the class feeling like complete retards.

Koffi seems smart and an easy grader. Discrete math is basically algebra so the class was pretty easy. Homework assignments were not collected. Koffi organized extra evening office ours to answer homework questions on set theory, function theory, recurrence relations, graph theory, etc... Koffi's class just gives you a taste. Even though he took over the course in the middle of the session he explained the course material deeply. He made himself available on zoom several times during test days which I pretty much appreciate as I had the opportunity to come and ask clarification questions. Good Professor and nice dude! Also, solid replacement of Prof. Ozel!

Good class, he is very thorough at explaining the subject, the midterms are simple, the final a little tricky. He doesn't assign much homework but you should do them, helps a lot for the class. Overall the material is an easy concept to understand, so it shouldn't be too bad. goodluck
