Students found that Professor Stephen Rockel’ s teaching style was exciting due to the multimedia he used to further elaborate on the lecture material. Most comments showed the fascination students felt while learning this new material taught for the first time, and according to almost 75% of the comments made, the prerequisites are unimportant for this course. However, students were mostly concerned with the heavy load in this course due to having three different reading sources to cover. Some had issues with the unorganized way and slow pace Professor Rockel taught in since it led to confusion to some students. There were also a lot of concerns with the TAs and a lot of aversion was shown towards their marking scheme. Some hoped for better tutorials that could’ve helped them out even more. Help could’ve been sought by students facing problems with their TAs from the Professor himself since he was also unanimously commended as helpful, knowledgeable and very understanding.
