Students felt Professor Artymowicz brought a great deal of enthusiasm to this course but it was hampered by logistical details in a variety of ways. A frequent concern was the lack of regularly tutorial hours, which students say they needed to deal with assignments. Comments that lectures were too focused on theory with no opportunity to practice seem directed at the same problem. Additionally, students found the text very difficult and suggested a change to some alternative.

Students found the course to be engaging, but thought that more examples would have been helpful. They would have also appreciated if assignments were handed back from the professor to the students on time.

Most student comments relate to lecture format and style, with a repeated concern that PowerPoint might not be the best tool for this course. Students reported an inability to take notes and generally to keep up with lectures. A couple pointed out that the subject matter of this course is simply quite large and that alone implies inevitable difficulties. Students generally acknowledged Professor Artymowicz's desire to see them succeed and to communicate the required material, despite suggestions for how that might improve in the future.
