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.

Background: I hated Calc in high school and I got a 1 on the AP test.

Greene was a great professor as she explained all the concepts with great detail and in an organized way. She never seemed to be rushing or skipping over "basic concepts that you should have learned in high school" that many other professors tend to do.
Her exams are VERY fair I have no complaints.
How to get an A in this class: The homework is long yes but you can easily get close to a 97%+ on the homework.
Online Assignment: you get 3 tries, everyone should get a 100%
Midterms/Final: If you study her prac. problems, homework problems, and go to review sessions you WILL get an A. That's how I got A's on all my exams.
Grade: A+

Absolutely the sweetest and kindest professor I've had so far. She does an excellent job at explaining topics and goes over it in depth.

Breakdown:
Homework 15% (total of 8 and drops the lowest score)
Wiley Plus (Online Assignments) 10%
Midterm I 20%
Midterm II 20%
Final 35%

Since most people excel in the class, it's practically not graded on a 'curve'. Average scores on the midterms range from 85-90.

Both of the midterms are really easy because she provides practice problems which is literally whats on the exam and the TAs also release practice problems. The class is also really easy if you've taken AP Calc in high school.

However, if you're struggling in the class make sure to go to your TAs office hours and Professor Greene's. They're very helpful and accommodating.
