Andrews is really helpful and an overall great professor to take this class with. He holds a lot of office hours and guides you in working out the problem on your own, rather than just answering the problem for you. He has really good TA’s too, who also are very good at explaining how to do the problems. The only problems I had in this class was that he assigns a lot of weekly homework, which is graded, so you need to get it done correctly and on time, and that his tests are pretty difficult if you don’t understand all the material completely. Overall, to pass this class you just need to do the homework mindfully, and go to his office hours and review sections to help you understand the content.

Andrews is a decent professor. He does this best at making math interesting. However, his tests are very difficult and are much more complex than the problems he assigns for homework. Also, homework problems can get very difficult and it is graded so you want to somehow find the correct answers. I found office hours to not be that helpful as sometimes my question would not even be answered due to the volume of students who went. The tests are extremely difficult and the averages are around a 60%. Be ready for a hard class but not impossible.

Michael is the most amazing professor I've ever had. His lectures are great. He breaks up every concept into steps and instead of using jargon he actually words stuff in basic terms. He even described a component of the infinite series (31B) as "a drunk friend" or for the Squeeze Theorem he'll see "use it when stuff looks ugly." I definitely recommend this class. Perks of Michael specifically involve how accurate his practice midterms are. Please take his class.

I always enjoyed going to Andrews' lectures. He kept lectures entertaining with his hilarious sense of humor, and really made sure that his students understood the material before he moved on. He explained problems step by step, but I will admit that the problems we did in class were much easier than those on hw and tests. As long as you know how to do the hw problems and go to his test review sessions, you will do fine on the test. The class is curved relatively well (I got a 79% and 83% on the two midterms and still got an A).

Class is composed of weekly homework assignments, two midterms, and a final. Midterms are difficult as there are only four problems on each, but there are many points for each problem. Definitely recommend taking Andrews for Math 31A.

The class is difficult. You must do homework and attend class in order to maintain a good grade. Mess up on the first midterm and you don't have much wiggle room. (This happened to me)

Fantastic Professor with an interesting approach to teaching. Lectures are engaging and funny.
