Just FYI: I received less than 95% and an A in Summer 2020, so the review that says "only achieving above 95% will give you an A" is false. Also, that review has other misleading information, like “his homework allows no mistakes.” I didn’t get 100% for each HW…

I had no prior coding experience, but this class is really doable for beginners. Professor Andrews is an excellent professor who is genuinely passionate about teaching. Taking his class was always a pleasure. He explained everything clearly, and his teaching style is so effective because he is knowledgable, witty, engaging, and thorough. I seldom got absent-minded following his lectures.

Some homework is a bit challenging, but most of them can be solved if we review the snippets carefully. Sometimes I did experience the situation where I had no idea how to write the code for HW, but we can always go to office hours to ask. Professor Andrews is so helpful that he will give us useful hints or explain the logic behind each question. So even if I was new to coding, I never felt stressed taking this class. If you worry about the grade of HW, just start them early and ask when having problems, then everything will be fine!

Tbh among the classes taken, Professor Andrews is the one who cares most about students and holds far more office hours than other profs. He is so nice and patient. Really, highly recommend this class!!

He is definitely the BEST professor I've ever met at UCLA! He explains everything so clearly and he is so helpful and approachable. I truly hope I can have the chance to take his class again. 120% recommend

Even though most of the class didn't like his way of teaching, I found it very helpful. He writes everything he says on the board, which slows down the class, but his class is engaging and often funny. I really wanted to take his class for 30B, but it wasn't offered so I had to take it with a very hard prof, which dropped by GPA a lot. He is great if you can tolerate a slow-paced class.

He is so cool. Ez A. Never attend a single lecture but do finish his homework. And the practice exam which will almost cover the question in the real exam. Half of the exam will be calculating limits derivatives, integrals, and tangent lines. Homework due every week.

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.

Professor Andrews makes his lectures very very clear for us to understand instantly before class is over. His teaching methodology emphasizes both on math intuition and on reasoning. His twice-weekly office hours are more than helpful. Having a wonderful TA partner as well. His personality is brilliant and amiable and he is the professor we all love.
