Opinions were split on the value of weekly quizzes vs. assignments at keeping up with the material. But almost all agree the course was valuable and gave them what they need out of first year calculus.

Professor Grinnell was repeatedly described as one of the greatest instructors at UTSC. Students appreciated the humour and passion he incorporated into his lectures, crediting his thorough and clear teaching style with making the dreaded mathematics enjoyable at 8:00 am. Many also found the content of the course difficult but enjoyed it nonetheless due to the many hours of extra-help Professor Grinnell was willing to provide for his students. The majority agreed that they would rather not take any more math courses, however, would do so if Professor Grinnell was the instructor.

Students expressed a great regard for the passion and evident effort Professor Grinnell brought to this course and praised his skills as a lecturer. Many comment that he allowed extensive time outside of the classroom for individual consultation but some felt in his effort to allow for many personal appointment his focus was drawn away from open office hours, which might serve some students better. The 8am lecture time drew the usual criticisms.

Students in this class were characteristically enthusiastic about Professor Grinnell. After a few dozen repetitions of 'best professor I've ever had' that becomes pretty clear. Some scattered complaints reference the volume of material to be covered, the timing of the lecture (8am!) and Professor Grinnell's tendency to use his board space in a haphazard manner. But almost every criticism came in the same sentence along with high praise for the class and quality of instruction.

Students in this course were very enthusiastic about Professor Grinnell and appreciative of his lectures and ability as an instructor. Several students who did not anticipate top grades went out of their way to praise their professor and be clear that any lack of success was due to their failure to take full advantage of the instruction. The only repeated complaint a minor one relates to Professor Ginnell's odd habit of writing on the board from the right side to the left, which some students found difficult.

Overall, many students were quite dissatisfied with the course. Aside from the fact that many students found the material very challenging, they were dissatisfied with the approach Professor Valko took in order to present the material: lecturing verbatim using the book’s proofs rather than providing examples of the application of the proofs. Thus, students found the assignments took long to complete, and the exams did not accurately reflect the material. Many students found the tutorial quite valuable. One suggestion students have for Professor Valko is to provide examples of how the proofs can be applied to mathematical problems and to real-life as well.

Several comments (and the numerical responses) indicate a general feeling that this was a very difficult course but Professor Butscher was cited as an enthusiastic instructor whose enthusiasm was contagious. A few students noted that the smaller class size contributed to a more collegial atmosphere with a greater sense of cooperative learning. Some requested more complete explanations of the various steps to each problem or most complete and detailed answers posted and made available, as they felt they lacked guidance on easier material they were assumed to know but might not.

Overall, students found Professor Butscher to be engaging and approachable, but would have benefited from a better tutorial experience where concepts were discussed and explained.

Students expressed a variety of concerns in this course, most notably that course work presupposed knowledge of certain computer programs they might not be familiar with and included no instructions for use. There was also the oft-repeated concern, regarding mathematics, that problems covered in class did not reflect the level of expectation on examinations. Also several students commented on Professor Moore's writing (see other Anti-Calendar entries) they also gave him credit for making conscientious efforts towards improvement.
