Students in this course felt that that Professor Duquette needed to be more prepared for her lectures with more organized slides. Clearer explanations and more examples to explain mathematical concepts would help. They found the midterm to be too difficult and they felt that the exam did not adequately reflect what was taught in the class. On the other hand, students did find the problem sets given in class to be a good preparation and they appreciated Professor Duquette's willingness to be available for extra help.

The use of stories and examples helped to keep the class attentive and interested. Laboratories were found to be basic, so laboratory time was not maximized, although the zoo trip was especially noted for its applicability and interest.
