The instructor himself received very good evaluations from his students for this course, with particular emphasis placed on his enthusiasm, energy, and sense of humour. Many students expressed concerns about the tutorials, however, and felt that the TAs were not adequately supervised or prepared. In light of this criticism, it is not surprising that many also felt the tutorials were weighted too heavily.
