I thought that he was an amazing professor, Liam was so organized, my lecture notes were incredibly clear. He would go over homework problems when he felt we didn't understand, he gave practice tests that were very helpful in preparing for the final and midterm. Additionally, he was nice and would tell us little anecdotes at the beginning of class. Optimization ended up being my favorite math course I took. Really fair grader too!

Great professor for optimization: really organized and logical so as long as you're paying attention you won't get lost. He tends to do more of the abstract in class, but the homeworks are half practical. It makes some of the problems tough, but go to office hours and he'll figure out where you're confused and guide you until you get it.

His tests are very straightforward. Challenging, but no surprises. I think 5 problems on the midterm and 10 or 12 on the final. Everything on both the midterm and the final were things gone over and emphasized in class.

Definitely one of the better math professors at UCLA.
