Overall amazing teacher and so cute! She is always bubbly and happy to help, definitely glad that this was my first class of the day. She is more than willing to help and answer questions. She has a great attitude and is very very articulate and thorough. She makes this class a breeze.

As a Soc major, I was dreading taking the Math pre-req. But Prof. Greene made this class completely do-able and I actually looked forward to going to class. She is EXTREMELY concerned about student learning and is a very interesting, organized lecturer. She made sure we understood all of the content before moving on and went slowly enough for everyone to fully grasp the concepts. I would absolutely recommend taking Math 2 with her--she is awesome and made this class way easier than I expected! What a sweetheart!

One of the best Professors at UCLA! Would recommend her to anyone who is not confident in Math as she will change that and I always looked forward to class no matter what.

She's helpful. I just wish the TAs would have more office hours. I did pretty bad on the first midterm and alright on the 2nd midterm. The final is what killed me and I thought I was prepared for it but I guess not. But her exams were fair I guess I just didn't prepare fully.
3B is harder than 3A so don't slack off just because you got a 5 on your AP calc exam and you think math is a joke. The only thing that'll be a joke after you take classes lightly is your GPA.

The most kind and caring professor I have met at UCLA. Her class always fills up first every enrollment period for a reason. Go to her office hours and you will receive the grade you want. She has 8 WHOLE hours of office hours per week. I have never heard of a professor that puts him/herself so available to students.

In regards to tests, her midterms are very similar to her practice exams, so they are very predictable. Her final exam for 3B was quite hard I must say, however for 3C, it was ridiculously easy.

I took this class in six weeks over the summer through CSI, and it was a good introduction to UCLA. Speaking as someone who literally despises math with every aspect of my being, Professor Greene actually made this complex concepts easy to understand. She is the sweetest lady and was always so chatty before class and in office hours, and loved showing us her cat and her grandson :) Her main goal is not to just teach the concepts, but to teach why the concepts work the way they do and how we arrived at them. A lot of things she explained were things I learned in high school, but never truly understood until now. There is homework almost nightly on Sapling, but it was usually like 7-10 problems and didn't take too long if you knew what you were doing. Be sure to attend lecture and take your own notes, because although she uploads her slides, they are handwritten and (due to the nature of trying to write on an IPad), difficult to read. She has a ton of office hours and was so accommodating whenever a technical or personal issue arose, and Harris was an absolutely fantastic TA as well. Since I struggle with math, I always attended every lecture, discussion, and office hour, so the class became time consuming, many of my peers did very will without committing so much time. She is very considerate and generous, and allows notes and other resources on her midterms and final, which were very fair (although rather long and time consuming, but again, I'm slow at math). I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to take this class, especially over the summer or anyone who generally isn't the fondest of math. Hoping she teaches 31B soon!

(For some context: I never took calculus in high school) Professor Greene is extremely accommodating and kind. She provides plenty of opportunities for students to receive help and always notifies her students beforehand of any updates or changes she makes to assignments. She is also very understanding and really tries to connect with her students. With that being said, this is definitely a class you need to study for daily. The course moves quickly and you cover a lot of content in 10 weeks, but she provides ample amount of resources for you to learn. There are a few long assignments due weekly, but they really help solidify the content you learn that week. Overall, Professor Greene is amazing and I am so happy I took her for my first math class at UCLA.

Unlike some of the professors here at UCLA, Greene does not assume you've already taken AP Calculus ABCDEFGHI.... in high school. She takes her time to explain important concepts thoroughly. Most importantly, connects them to real life examples that helps you realize the importance of calculus. I originally took the class with another professor but ended up dropping it because of how horrible the material SEEMED to me. Little did I know that the professor was just butchering calculus, so when I took this course with Greene, she showed me the true beauty behind calc. She is easy to comprehend and talks in a very clear manner. I went into the class hoping never to take another calculus class, but left wanting to take more. UCLA keeps hiring PhD students to teach classes that they have no business teaching because it saves them money. Greene is one of those rare professors who doesn't have a PhD, but has stuck around because she has a clear talent for teaching. If you're scared of calculus but want to like it it, take any course with her. You'll thank me and her later.
