[Tyler's not going to be here after this year, but I thought I'd give a review as reflection of what honors multi can be.]
One of the best classes I've ever taken. The lectures were engaging - concepts were *explained* - all the reasons behind each concept, well enough that I could normally look back at my notes and understand at least to some degree why every action was taken. And if I didn't, there were three hours of OH to get help with homework, get questions answered, and go on random math tangents. The course was very different from non h - very proof-based, large focus on sequences and sets, homeworks had a limited number of problems that required much thought, and the class was small enough to have a fun group chat and group study/support.
I also took 32bh, and this sequence convinced me that I want to at least try some upper div math classes - currently planning to end up with a math minor.
It'll depend on the teacher, but I highly recommend at least checking out the honors math classes

I took 32AH and 32BH with Professor Arant and he’s one of the most wonderful professors I’ve had at UCLA. His lectures are exceptionally clear and he explains hard concepts very well.
His class was definitely challenging and 32BH was harder than 32AH. However, as long as you do the homework every week, you should be on top of things. To do the homework, you will need your notes/textbook but if you do that, you should be pretty much set for the midterms/final.
He’s very approachable, friendly and has good handwriting. I heard he also won a teaching award, which he definitely deserves. His class prepared me really well for my proof intensive upper division honors classes. Can’t recommend him enough. Take a class with him if you can

The professor is very organized. I mostly relied on the class notes to help with studying for quizzes and tests. The class is very theoretical and proof-based. I recommend you attend class at the scheduled time in order to not fall behind, but relying on the lecture recordings does not make a difference.

The homework was worth 10% of your grade and it is based on completion. It was very long, but the TA's helped with solving some of the problems. The professor provides partial solutions to the homework after the due date. The homework was the best source of practicing the material and studying for the quizzes and tests.
The weekly quizzes were difficult, but if you fully understood the homework, then they were doable. (some of the questions on the homework were difficult though).
I felt the Midterms were much easier than the Final. Personally, the Midterms and the Final took a while to complete.
Overall, the class is very organized. He is willing to answer any questions you have and the class requires you to critically think.

I took 2 classes this summer with Arant back to back and by the end, I was tired of his voice and unnecessary explanation. He's very knowledgable for his age but sometimes he gets confused on small stuff and calculation. His lecture notes are very well organized but the lectures itself is not engaging. Be prepare for the time consuming hws which sometimes takes few days to be done and only worths 20% of your grade. From my experience his midterms are much harder than his final exam but it doest change anything since they all worths equally. Overall I would recommend him since there are no better instructors for this class.

Even though he seems really helpful but most of the time he tries to twist the explanation. His lecture notes are copy-paste from the book so is pointless to attend the lecture unless you have spare time to waste. Hw load is massive so be prepared to do 35-45 problems a week. Exams are pretty much same version of hw problems but he takes so many point off for small mistake even if you have the right answers (imagine you did everything right, exactly like solution manual but you gonna end up with high C) and there are typos in every exam. The only good thing about this class was the super helpful TA and the fact that final exam worths same weight as other exams so it doesn't really effect your grade at end

Lectures are complicated but he's verbose so you can scribble down his lectures and study it later. He tends to make things theoretical but he's not complicated and he doesn't go on tangents.

Homework is incredibly hard so go to OH for sure.

Tests are definitely fair. Not easy but the questions aren't designed to trick you.

Definitely take his class unless the alternative is some 5/5 math professor like Keranen or Conley.
