Students thought that the course material was interesting, and was clearly applicable to everyday life. However, Professor Furlong's high expectations for an introductory course were intimidating to some, with large amounts of material being covered very quickly. They felt that the professor was impolite at times, leaving some students hesitant to ask questions. Several felt that more time allotted for student questions and to write exams would improve their learning experience.

Students felt that Professor Cleveland was very knowledgeable and organized. Also, students enjoyed having the lecture slides and past exams posted online. However, some felt that the professor could have offered more sample questions in class. As this course dealt heavily with mathematical calculations, students felt that they should have been assigned recommended practice questions to help better prepare them for the midterm and final exams. Nonetheless, students found the material beneficial, enjoyed taking this course, and thought it was a great learning experience.

Overall, students found ECMA04H3 to be a useful, though challenging course. While Professor Cleveland's effective and thoughtful explanations and lectures greatly helped students understand material, some had difficulty with the fast pace and difficulty of calculations required for this class. The online resources, lectures and videos were incredibly helpful and well-organized. However, while tutorials and lectures focused on theoretical aspects of material, the exams were largely problem-based and consequently several students commented that the course would be improved by more assigned practice problems.

While some students agreed with Professor Furlong's "in-depth knowledge" and found him to be an enthusiastic instructor, others noted theory examples and graphs were left unexplained.

Professor Parker was described as enthusiastic, highly knowledgeable and entertaining by the majority of students. They enjoyed his analogies and found his humour to be a refreshing addition to the economics class. They were divided however regarding the length of the sessions. Many described the 3-hour classes as overwhelming and highly dense, while others found them to be beneficial. Students would like tutorials to be included as a component of this course and feel that this would greatly assist them with understanding the mathematical material in this class. They would also like the lectures to be presented in a more organized manner and would appreciate if more graphs were incorporated into classes.

Overall, felt that Professor Sillamaa was a very knowledgeable instructor and willing to share her knowledge of economics with class through clear and precise lecturing. Students felt that her notes were well-written and clear to follow, which added to the fact that she was very helpful and willing to provide assistance to students who ask. Some students, however, felt that the weekly tests were sometimes a burden, and tested more on calculus knowledge rather than economics. One suggestion students have Professor Sillamaa is to provide more sample questions so students could practice their calculus skills.

Students found Professor Parker's enthusiasm for the material to be contagious. Many benefited from the analogies he provided them to assist with the understanding of the concepts presented during lectures. Students however were unhappy with the textbook and found it to be dense and difficult to understand. They would like class notes to be provided as Powerpoint slides in order to increase the organization of lectures. They felt that the Intranet should be used more frequently to remind them of deadlines and as a means of communication. Harder examples were suggested to better prepare students for the second midterm which was determined to be significantly more difficult than the first.

Students found Professor Parkinson to be good instructor, who was knowledgeable about the subject matter and an effective communicator. However, the course material could be challenging, and students felt that more practical examples in class would add interest and better prepare them for the exams. While informative, Professor Parkinson's impromptu notes could be difficult to follow, and students felt that more frequent breaks throughout the three-hour lecture would help them retain more information.

A few suggest that the grading scheme (two tests worth 50% each) was not appropriate. The difficulty of learning three hours at a stretch was referenced again.

Students in this course were positive about Professor Parkinson's classroom style and instruction but were critical of the course TA and felt the tutorials were not necessarily useful. Quite a few students felt that the distribution of the final grade, with 50% resting with a midterm and 50% with a final was not reasonable and did not properly reflect students' abilities.

Professor Drost was a good instructor that presented clear examples to illustrate theories. It was difficult to see him for extra help outside of class time because of his position as a professor at York University. There was no clear transition between topics and Drost moved quickly from topic to topic. Classes should be broken into multiple one hour sessions.

Overall, students found Professor Ahmed to be an effective instructor, using good examples reflective of the work covered in class. However, many students were dissatisfied with the method of evaluation proposed by Professor Ahmed, often citing that the midterms were too easy and unreflective to the material taught. The final was too hard, and students did not feel prepared based on the simplicity of the midterm. Thus, the one suggestion students have for Professor Ahmed is to balance student evaluation so that the midterm and final questions are fair, and not on different ends of the spectrum.

Overall, students felt that Professor Yu was an excellent instructor who was enthusiastic about the material that he clearly presented. They appreciated his examples which showed the practical use of the theory that was being learned. Some students, however, found the exams a little challenging. One suggestion students have for Professor Yu is to shorten the length of the tests/exams so it can be done in the allotted time.

Students were particularly concerned that there was very little reading for the first half of the course but a great deal for the second half, and that the midterm contained material that had not been previously covered.

Professor Smith answered questions well and explained the material from the textbook well. Unfortunately, he was often difficult to find and his handwriting on the board was hard to read. The course covered too much material in a very short time, so it was hard to get a firm understanding of all material taught.

Professor Ng was noted as an intelligent and eager professor. However, students noted lectures to be not of great value and that effective communication during lectures was lacking. Students cited office hours to be very helpful and a great means in succeeding within the course.

Professor Ng while a caring Professor was not a very effective communicator. Students found that they were not getting a lot of value out of the lectures. Students found him a lot better one on one during his office hours than in front of a class. More and better examples need to be used.

Students had quite an enjoyable experience in this class. Professor Krashinsky made ideas very clear and was available to students who needed his help. Students commented that he was patient, taking the time necessary to answer questions completely either during office hours or after class. Many described Professor Krashinsky as being an excellent professor. Despite the glowing praise, several students felt that the midterm was far too long and complex for the amount of time allotted and that Professor Krashinsky tends to cram too much information into his lectures.

Students thought Professor Krashinsky was a phenomenal professor. The course material was cited to be presented in a very organized manner. In addition, the pace at which the course was taught was excellent in comprehension of the core material.
