Maybe I'm just happy I got a B, but Professor Gehret is an excellent professor. You could tell that he cares about his students and makes sure that the material be made as clear as possible. He uses his own lecture notes, which act as basically the textbook. These notes are pretty comprehensive and are basically all you need to know, but that does by no means that lectures aren't helpful. He is a pretty good teacher in general, and explains the "why," to get us to see the bigger picture.
Homeworks are fairly difficult (around 8 questions that he writes himself), and we had 2 homeworks per week because it was a summer session class. A lot of people dropped because of this I think. It was also 25% of the grade too, so there was a lot of pressure. He acknowledged the difficulty of this though, and hopefully change this in the future. Although he'll probably give one a week during the school year anyways. But tests are very very fair. Half of the test is recalling definitions. He started doing true and false, and boy are they tricky. I should have just left it blank
In conclusion, you know 131A is a hard class anyways. But Professor Gehret makes your hard work worth it by teaching in a way that helps you understand concepts and learn how to study proofs.
The workload is high. Each week there are two assignments assigned, each containing 8 questions with multiple sub problems. The instructor uses his own lecture notes as the textbook, in which the proofs are somehow razzle-dazzle. Considering dropping the course.
Professor Gehret is an amazing professor overall. He's clear in his lectures and is sure to elaborate on any unclear topics. Great explanations for material. Suggest going to class every day because you don't wanna miss his teaching.
Professor Gehret also has to be the most passionate and helpful teacher. I went to his office hours regularly and it helped tremendously. Homeworks are sort of difficult, but you can always go to office hours to get some hints of any questions on homework. So, please make the most of these resources.
He is very honest, fair, and loves what he does and shows it through his teaching. It is not an easy class, but he offers a welcoming learning environment however because he gives it so much effort he expects the same.
