Fall 2020 - Professor Bennoun is quite possibly the best professor and person I have met at UCLA. He is so funny, and he makes class incredibly engaging. Bennoun has got to be the kindest and most understanding teacher I have had the opportunity to learn from. Not only are his classes relaxed and fun, but he also takes time to acknowledge the social aspects of mathematics. Bennoun spent a few lectures taking time to acknowledge the influence of BIPOC and WOC in mathematics, and it made learning the content even more worthwhile! He also conducts extensive office hours, and social hours, and overall he just made this class so much fun and so easy to understand.
