Quarter Taken: Winter 2019 Submitted June 26, 2019 Grade Received: A

Santos is one of those incredible professors who not only care about student learning, but also are able to clearly explain difficult concepts. Santos came to every class ridiculously prepared, from her stash of multicolored whiteboard markers to her incredibly detailed slides. She explained concepts clearly and concisely in such a way that I didn't need to refer to the textbook to understand concepts (like I've had to do with other classes). She's also extremely nice and really cares about her students. Lectures were well prepared and clear, despite the somewhat dry nature of the subject material. All the tests (weekly quizzes, midterms, final) were straightforward and fair. The homework however is graded quite thoroughly, so be prepared for that grading scheme. The class is not curved since the examinations are so straightforward.

Quarter Taken: Winter 2019 Submitted April 1, 2019 Grade Received: A

Santos is an amazing professor, super organized and straightforward. Quizzes are easy points and the exams are fairly easy as well. The class is super easy for the first five weeks, basically just standard kinematics. After that it gets a bit confusing with 3D motion, but it all boils down to a couple of equations. I would 100% recommend taking this class with Santos.

Quarter Taken: Spring 2015 Submitted June 30, 2016 Grade Received: A+

Santos was by far one of the best professors I've had thus far at UCLA. Unlike 99% of the other profs, she actually cares about student learning. Almost everyone got an A the quarter I took the class because she didn't believe in curving the class down just for the sake of curving the class. I felt like I actually learned a lot throughout the quarter; the lectures were all very organized and clear. She was very accommodating to students needs and even posted a lecture online when she had to travel to a conference so that we wouldn't fall behind. Overall, I was definitely glad I took this class with her and would love to take another course taugh by Santos.
