Students felt that Prof. Cortinois was approachable, very organized and intelligent, but suggested that he could have been more enthusiastic and engaging during the lectures. Students also greatly appreciated the TAs, who they felt did an excellent job of explaining concepts and pointing out the bigger picture. Students generally enjoyed the class, but stated that there was too much material to learn in a short amount of time (with relatively high difficulty) and too many readings. It was also suggested that the professor be more understanding/flexible of the technical problems associated with electronic submission of assignments. Students have also suggested that perhaps assignments could be graded faster and that lecture notes could be posted online prior to the lecture.

Many students felt Professor Cortinois was a great professor who was entertaining, cheerful and articulate. The Professor was very helpful and attentive to student needs and suggestions. However, generally students were not satisfied with the tutorials, citing a need for greater communication between the TAs and professor about assignment instructions and expectations. Students felt questions were not fully answered in tutorial, which resulted in the professor using a disproportionate amount of lecture time to answer assignment questions. It was also felt that the number of readings was too heavy for a second year course.
