Mr. Child Prodigy is leaving for UCI next year, but why not leave a review for him.

Ima be honest, the only reason I got an A was because of the 24 hour quizzes/tests. The HWs optional so without the 24 hour policy, the exams (which he gave us study guides on) would have been bad. But overall, I didn't learn much but I got an A in one of the hardest lower division classes at UCLA so I can't be too upset.

A literal god. I will never forget donuts, rats, and emoji variables.

Okay but in all seriousness, March is a great professor and extremely reasonable. The homework is optional, but it is extremely helpful as the problems are often from there. I also recommend doing the practice midterms and final as they are from the previous quarters, and are very much reflected in the exam. March isn’t a professor who does surprises, you get what you come for.

I highly recommend taking him.

March makes 32B an extremely easy A, however you will not have any conceptual understanding of the course. He makes the class extremely formulaic, and literally tells you what your test questions will be. Take March if you want an easy A, but if you want to learn 32B well, don't take his class, or take him and study the conceptual stuff on your own time. His lectures are extremely boring, but he has optional homework, which is incredible.

Professor Boedihardjo simplifies and teaches multivariable calculus clearly and concisely. During the quarter that I had him (remote learning), he used a document of his own notes to teach the class, which was straightforward and easy to understand. The exams and quizzes were also pretty easy and the overall workload of the course is light since homework is optional. All in all, I appreciate how he made multivariable calculus less intimidating and comprehensible!

pros:
- it's easy. he will be exact, precise, and upfront about his expectations 100% of the time. no tricks whatsoever. this is definitely and most certainly the best and most fantastic part about March.
- he's iconic. very interesting person to take a class from
- will simplify things a lot for you
- he is a trackpad legend.

cons:
- explanations are very shallow. wouldn't really answer questions about what concepts/calculations actually represent. i have 0 clue what a flux or a curl even after reading the textbook
- the way he does notes is really weird. he writes up and reads off a pdf that has a decent number of errors usually (tbf he will correct them after quite quickly when uploading to ccle). makes it harder to follow his thought process when he's just reading off bullet points
