HE IS THE BEST TEACHER!
He has a great teaching style and all his quizzes and exams are fair.

Conley explains EVERYTHING. His lectures are thorough and he writes down every detail you need for your notes.

There isn't too much homework and he truley cares about his students!

TAKE HIS CLASS, EVEN IF YOU DON'T NEED MATH FOR YOUR MAJOR

Course taken is actually Life Sciences 30A - Mathematics for Life Scientists, NOT Math 19.

OK. So this is my first quarter, and I don't know much about professors, but so far, Professor Conley is my absolute favorite professor.

He is very, very clear in his teaching style. His lectures might go at a quite slow speed, but that is a good thing because that helps a lot of people (maybe even nearly everyone) in the class to understand the concept. And no accent (try some other "foreign" professors, and you will see what I mean)!
And you are very welcome to come to his office hours. I personally did not visit his office that many times, but I enjoyed every time that I spent there. He is very, very approachable. Just go to his office and get to know him.

TAKE HIS CLASS IF YOU HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO DO SO! He might even become your favorite UCLA professor.

Will is literally the best professor on campus. The man loves to teach. Case in point: he held a 3 hour review session before a midterm that started at 6 pm, then stayed behind 2 hours after the review session to answer questions. He will make you love math. If you already love math, he'll make you love coding. If already love both, he'll make you love them more. You can ask him anything any time. I did an honors contract with him, so I was in his office outside of office hours a lot, and you will not believe the number of former students who come to ask him for help on anything math or coding related. Even if you're a north campus gender studies major who doesn't need to touch math ever again in your life, I highly recommend taking this (or any) course with Will. Literally the best professor on campus.

This professor knows what he is teaching and gives engaging lectures. He is very nice and actually cares about your grades and tries to give you the best appropriate grade that you deserve. He also provides the class with past midterms and finals to study before exam. His midterm were very similar to the practice midterms when I took the class. Also, if you need help or have a hard time understanding the material I would recommend for you to go to his office hours because he is very approachable. If you want a good grade and you will put effort then definitely go for him.

His notes and lectures are clear and very in depth! You don't need to read the textbook at all because his lectures teach the concepts very well. Do the homework because the weekly quizzes are almost identical to the homework problems. He definitely cares for his students because before every exam he has a review session and it lasts for as long as students need. We would ask a bunch of questions and he didn't even mind that the review session went to three hours. Calculus will never be completely easy, but his exams were fair and really tested your understanding of the material. If I could have him as a professor every quarter, I would! Definitely one of the best professors here on campus!

The best professor I've ever had. He is dedicated to answering your every question and his explanations are PERFECT. He sacrifices late hours to helping his students. Truly a top-notch educator. I wish he could teach all of my math classes.
