Although he is leaving soon, I just want to thank Andersen for a really great 33A class. This is literally the best professor you can possibly have -- uses gradescope, really, really good lecturer, super clear, very knowledgeable, crazy fast at grading + answering questions @ piazza, gives very reasonable hw, but has additional practice, posts detailed study guides + discussion worksheets, etc. Only think I wish he did was post a practice final / midterm, but honestly this is nitpicking. Andersen made me excited to go to class everyday, and I think the whole class did too -- the classroom was literally always full the entire quarter.
The midterms and final were pretty easy, I think a lot of people got an A. But we learned a lot, especially compared to other 33A classes like Das / Hlusckanka (however u spell it). We started eigenstuff week 6 vs week 9 for the other classes, which really allowed us to learn them thoroughly. Overall, if you ever get Andersen (although this will probably only happen @ another university), consider yourself lucky. He is the best professor I have had yet at UCLA and probably will be for a while.
Linear Algebra is not an easy subject but Professor Andersen certainly helped a lot. He starts every lecture answering conceptual questions that the students may have before he teaches new material. Nice handwriting; clear lecture; solid enunciation and voice. Prof. Andersen is clearly very passionate about math and tries to show how the math is applied in certain fields. He is pretty funny too: witty comments about his weekends, dad jokes and selfie with students before midterms :P Every once in a while he will comment on how he screws up computations (let's face it, everyone makes mistakes when dealing with matrices, you're totally fine Nick). Overall, one of the best professors that I've ever had and I am confident he will be a great educator wherever he goes.
