Students found Professor Cornwell very organized with his lectures and were pleased with his overall presentation of the course. However, many students expressed that the lectures could have been a bit more interesting by adding examples and illustrations that could liven up the class. The exams fairly evaluated the course material. Students would have appreciated if Professor Cornwell had opened longer office hours, especially during exam time (midterm). Overall, students were pleased with the course and instructor and were able to apply knowledge of concepts learnt to the real world.

According to most students Professor Cornwell was an enthusiastic lecturer, who was genuinely interested in helping students understand the material. A few suggested that he lacked a profound understanding, and sometimes was not able to answer more difficult questions. The examinations were weighted to mathematically based questions, which some felt required more worked-through examples in class or tutorial in order to be answered within the given time. All comments on the material agreed that it was of great interest and importance.

A number of students suggest this course could benefit from additional work on equations either in class or out of a text. They found they were not prepared for testing on material they learned in class, as there was little opportunity to practice. Most found the tutorial useful, though some felt that was the appropriate venue for more practical experience and were disappointed they did not get it. They found Professor Cornwell credible and were not too critical of him personally but generally felt the course lacked that certain something to bring it together.
