Grade distributions are collected using data from the UCLA Registrar’s Office.
Sorry, no enrollment data is available.
Before I start writing this review, I have to address the complaints put forward by his 3 series students: You do realize that his grading scheme is literally par for the department, correct? 25% A's and ~65% A's and B's is roughly how most professors spread out the grading. In fact, it's one of the most lenient distributions. His scheme is very lenient as well. Some professors don't even allow you to drop a midterm. White allows you to drop a midterm and two homeworks/quizzes. The "numbers don't lie" except they are comparable to, or better than, most of the professors out there, and just because Greene is an amazing professor does not mean White is a terrible one.
White did have actual flaws as a professor when it comes to experience. He did explain concepts well for the most part, but would often get stuck in the middle of a proof or forget a fact under pressure. This made him hard to follow on certain days. For a math class, the homework was not very satisfactory. There were only six homework sets that you even had to consider, because there were only 3 homeworks and 3 quizzes with only a few problems graded on each, and messing up on a few could get you off to a very bad start (10/20 on the first homework personally was scary), even with the ability to drop two of them. That being said, he was still effective at getting the job done, had a good sense of humor, was very helpful on Piazza and outside of class and approachable to anyone who sought him out, and wrote very fair midterms and a fair final where each question had multiple ways in which you could go about solving it. Overall, I would definitely recommend taking 170A with White.
