He is the professor to have for this class. Had him online and he gave us 24 hours to take the midterms and finals. He also was very responsive and gave extensions on sapling (hw) and quizzes.

Professor Conley is THE BEST. He is one of the few teachers I have had so far at UCLA that genuinely wants all students to pass his class. Conley goes above and beyond to help his students succeed. He is generous with grading and attendance considering it is virtual and much harder. I thoroughly enjoyed this class and learned a lot. If you ever get the chance to one of his classes you should!

Professor Conley is one of the best teachers I have ever had. If I could take every math class with him I would. He is a very clear speaker and his lectures are very helpful. Homework is completed on Sapling. During COVID he allowed us to have infinite tries on the problems. He assigns challenging questions, but if you go to office hours he can show you how to properly complete them.
His midterms were challenging for me and I failed the first one. But this was because I didn't attend his review session and I didn't spend much time on the provided practice exams. For the 2nd Midterm and Final I went to the review sessions and completed the practice exams. They are very similar to the actual tests. Definitely take advantage of his review sessions. He puts a lot of time into them, sometimes spending 4 hours going over material and answering everyone's questions. He gave us 24 hours to complete the exams. I took about 5 hours on the final because I tend to make silly mistakes but the review sessions and practice tests prepare you well.
Professor Conley allows for 2 grading schemes and chooses whichever one will give you a better grade. Since I did well on the 2nd midterm and final he dropped my 1st midterm (which I failed) and I was able to pull through with an A-. There are also short quizzes every week. I did ok on them, but if you do well you can get a few extra points with them.
If you have the chance to take a math class with Professor Conley definitely do it. He is such a dedicated and approachable teacher. He also showed us his dogs at the end of the final review session, which was nice after 5 hours of reviewing material. If you do not do well in this class it is because you are not taking advantage of all of the resources Mr. Conley provides.

He's the best seriously! I always struggled with math but he really made it easier to understand. I couldn't have had a better professor.

If Peter Parker became a math professor. Conley was extremely accommodating with the online learning format. He didn't make live lectures or discussions mandatory, recorded his lectures, etc. He stays over his scheduled office hours time to help out students and even gave a 5 hour review session for the final.

Since this is technically the second time I'm taking this course (I took AP Calc AB in high school but didn't get a 5 on the exam), the course was manageable for me. However, the difference between my high school teacher and Conley is night and day. While my high school teacher wasn't bad, I never felt like I fully grasped the material based on her lectures alone. With Conley, I had a significantly deeper understanding of the material because he explains topics so that you understand them conceptually.

Great professor and great guy, I felt lucky to have him as a professor.

Conley is an awesome prof, take him if you can. Super helpful and makes a ton of exceptions on deadlines if he notices the whole class is taking longer than usual; really in touch with his students.
I have a brand new copy of the textbook , still in its packaging that I am looking to sell for $60. Text me @ (925)289-6294 if you're interested!

Professor Conley is by far the best professor I've had at UCLA thus far. His lectures are super clear and he is always willing to go out of his way to offer extra help outside of class. I definitely recommend going to his midterm/final review sessions as they were super informative and a great review of the material.

As a math major this class was easy for me. I took this class simply because I want to review some math material since I haven't been doing math for quite a while before college. However, Dr. Conley's background in abstract algebra can never be underestimated, and he delivers excellent talks in advanced topics outside his usual lower division classes.
