Professor Pennington was an able and engaging instructor in the opinion of the class, though a few suggested his lectures move a little fast and his tendency to deviate from a tight structure left them confused. Several students expressed concerns regarding their TAs and grading, and felt the lecture sections were of greater value than the tutorials. The material and course content was considered relevant and important, aided by a balanced approach.
