 +  *Less writing on board, more talking, more enthusiasm/excitement
 +  *A few more complicated examples in class would be helpful
 +  *Waiting time for people to complete white board exercises was sometimes too long

 +Grads (ph561)
 +  *Would like better alignment with EM and QM, for example, Bessel functions should be moved earlier in term.
 +  *One person said it could have been more challenging - others said it was just right.
 +  *Reduced row eschelon form for matrices was missing from course
