Summary     1       2       

What are the major strengths and weaknesses of the instructor?

1.   usually very clear, concise explanationsgood sense of humoursometimes gets sidetracked on long explanations or proofs
2.   Strengths are his ability to communicate clearly. Weakness, tend to lightly touch many things while expecting in depth knowledge. I feel more time spent actually doing and a little less time with the actual theory, no practicality!

What aspects of this course were most beneficial to you?

1.   This course will serve as a solid base for my future studies.I think that an understanding of theory fundamentals such as those taught in this class make other course easier to understand
2.   Haven't quite figured that out yet

What do you suggest to improve this course?

2.   As above, add a little more practicality to the objectives of the course.

Comment on the grading procedures and exams

2.   None

Other comments?

2.   Try to cover less, with more in depth examples, similar to what we would be tested on. This would give a student a better feel for what to work on or what you may or may not understand and would also give opportunity to answer more questions.
