Overall, students were pleased with Professor Chan's teaching ability and style. They appreciated his emphasis on practical examples as opposed to proofs during lecture. Assignments were helpful. However many students suggested that they should consist of a greater number of questions to assist in preparation for evaluations. Students also found tutorials to be an asset to this course.
