Professor Potter was responsible for the lab portion of this course, and many students found the labs to be disorganized. Students stated that the marking scheme was very vague, so they did not know what the expectations of the lab reports were. Also, they found the course load of the lecture and lab to be very difficult to manage, and they would prefer it if these two parts were separated into two courses. However, students found the labs to be very interesting, but improving the organization of the labs would have made their learning experiences better.
