Overall, felt that Professor Sillamaa was a very knowledgeable instructor and willing to share her knowledge of economics with class through clear and precise lecturing. Students felt that her notes were well-written and clear to follow, which added to the fact that she was very helpful and willing to provide assistance to students who ask. Some students, however, felt that the weekly tests were sometimes a burden, and tested more on calculus knowledge rather than economics. One suggestion students have Professor Sillamaa is to provide more sample questions so students could practice their calculus skills.

Students thought Professor Sillamaa to be a great professor. Her notes were an excellent supplement to the recommended textbook but some students would prefer if the course had a dedicated textbook. The level of difficulty of the assignments were also at times, higher than the difficulty of the material shown in class.
