Students found Professor Mikhaylichenko explained course material in a clear and comprehensive manner. They also enjoyed her enthusiastic approach, but would have liked larger text on her lecture slides. However, students felt there was not enough time to go over material taught in lecture, and the TA often had expectations that were set too high, according to the students. Overall though, students found her to be an excellent professor.

Students agreed that Professor Restivo is an excellent educator who gives a clear presentation of course material. She is available for extra help, and she makes course expectations very understandable. However, students would have liked a more organized presentation of the lecture content, as well as completing fewer problems with thorough explanations, rather than doing many with insufficient time for explanation.

Professor Dalili is organized and helpful. However many students are concerned that because the course load is above average, it will impede the students? ability to adequately absorb the course material. Students suggested that the Professor should slow down and explain the material more thoroughly. The students believe by doing so it would be easier to understand and enjoyable.

Students found Professor Dalili to be an excellent instructor for this especially difficult course. She had extremely well-organized lectures notes and explained the concepts thoroughly. Students were pleased with how accessible and helpful she was during office hours. A minor suggestion students have is for the Professor to do more examples in class from outside the textbook. Most complaints from the respondents centered on the tutorials, which many thought were not useful. The other anticipated discomfort was with the 8 am class time. Though students found the workload to be very high (weekly quizzes, lab quiz, tutorial quiz, pre-lab preparation and exams), Professor Dalili made the learning experience valuable.

Most students felt that Professor Kandeephan needed to organize the lectures better such that she would not have to rush through the second half of the course (the tougher chapters). Some thought that the idea of quizzes at the end of lectures was not a good idea. Students would have liked to see the Professor respond to student queries sooner via emails. Nevertheless, some of the respondents appreciated Professor Kandeephan for her clear explanations of concepts and knowledge of this tough subject.

Students were well pleased with Wanda as she had a thorough understanding of the knowledge material and communicated effectively to the students. She was also very approachable and helpful to the students and made that extra effort to make sure they understood the concepts. Although the material to be learned was very challenging, through Wanda's supervision in the labs, students were satisfied with the course overall.

A number of students note that Professor Kandeephan drew extensively from the course text for in-class instruction but where some found this repetitive and boring others appreciated the opportunity to approach familiar material in another way. Most were very appreciative of her organized, methodical approach while some found it monotonous. Typically, students note this is a very challenging course.

Students feel that Professor McClelland did a good job with a course that most people inevitably seem to hate. Various suggestions were made, including the addition of tutorial sessions, a more generous grading curve, and moving the course away from its timeslot at eight in the morning. Very few complaints touched on Professor McClelland himself, however, who students enjoyed.

Reactions to this course very extremely varied, with quite a number of students citing the inherent difficulty of the material. Some felt Professor Tidwell performed very well, allowing for that difficulty, while others were critical of his efforts. Many agreed that a tutorial for this course would be helpful.


What do the numbers mean?
