Many students noted that Professor Enright provided valuable and well-structured lecture slides, and fairly evaluated student work. However, some felt that the instructor's lectures lacked enthusiasm and that he should have provided students with more examples throughout the course.

Students found the workload heavy in this course, and a number were less than enthusiastic about the material itself, but most acknowledged the value and importance of the class. Professor Wain-Bantin's real world experience was an asset and while a few students found her expectations were tough they also found she was very willing to help when needed.

Student feedback on this course focused on suggestions to improve the lecture format and while recommendations differ there was widespread agreement that something was lacking. Students suggested everything from more detailed slides to more examples to notes available before class to longer tutorials. Students did not find particular fault with Professor Enright or his dedication as an instructor they just had trouble responding to his lectures.

Students thought Professor Enwright covered the material very completely at a good pace. More in-class examples would have made the lectures even more interesting.

The lectures in this course were theoretical in nature and had concepts that were hard to grasp. The students found that more examples were necessary especially the numerical kind. It is suggested that one grabs a copy of the 2001-2002 anti-calendar for a review of how Professor Pancer taught the course.

Students felt Pancer was a very good instructor. However, more examples were needed in class. Due to difficult material, better TA's were requested for this course. Most students found the textbook useless. Tests marks need to get back to students quicker, especially around the time of the drop date.
