Some students feel that this material was not especially interesting but they focused most easily when Professor Bovaird drew from personal and real world examples, at which times he was very interesting. Some felt pressured by the grading format, with a 30% midterm and a 70% final. A few commented that they did not appreciate lectures ending early as they did not have many hours of instruction per week and wanted all they could get.

Comments for this course were wildly polarized, with some students explaining that they enjoyed the class and the way it was taught and others saying that it was one of their least favourite courses at UTSC. For as many students that said Professor Bovaird was a caring teacher who took the time to answer questions and give positive feedback, there were just as many comments that stated that Professor Bovaird could have been more helpful. Most students agreed that Professor Bovaird was opinionated, but for as many people who enjoyed that, just as many hated it. There seemed to be little middle ground.
