While many were intimidated by the title of this course, most found it to be of great interest and value. Dr. Fulthorpe included a poster presentation as an assignment, which students felt was good preparation for later academic or professional work. The majority of respondents spoke to Dr. Fulthorpe's vast knowledge, entertaining lecture style, genuine interest in the material and skill in helping students to cope with the challenging ideas; some felt that if the lectures themselves had a more predictable structure, they might be easier to assimilate.
