Richard Wong is a very good professor, and I would definitely recommend his class.

When I took it, there was a dual grading system that kept the better of two possibilities (allowing one midterm to be dropped, like many math classes here). Both grading schemes had four components: either one or two midterms, the final, six quizzes, and two 'challenge problem sets', which were somewhat akin to guided research papers.

The quizzes were designed to be more of a review of the previous week than an examination, so the questions were both reasonably straightforward and graded leniently. The challenge problem sets were a bit nebulous in terms of expectations, but I personally found them interesting and the class averages were high. Both of these assignments allowed students to collaborate, as long as the work they turned in was their own.

The midterms and final were very well written, including content that had been covered in class (no curveballs), but requiring some thinking - more than just memorized problem types. During my quarter, they were 24-hour exams, but could potentially have been a bit tricky under a time crunch. Homework was not collected.

Wong himself is friendly and approachable, and he was willing to slow down if students had questions. While his lectures could be a bit boring, they were both clear and useful. Attendance was optional.

Wong was great! Very clear lectures and slides, with some examples. I'd heard that 32B was very hard, but Wong's class was totally manageable. HW was optional. Just had to do 2 challenge problem sets that were basically apply your knowledge to a slightly more complex problem and type up a solution that looks like a textbook page. A little tedious to get it properly done, but not difficult. Quizzes in discussion were with a group, easy 100s. Exams were a little tricky at times (I assume because they were 24 hour online, to make cheating harder). Nothing too unreasonable though. Definitely recommend taking him if possible!
