Some students felt that the lectures did not help clarify the required readings, although the tutorials were interesting and useful. Mochnacki was seen as enthusiastic and students found his notes clear, and easy to follow. They also enjoyed the extra information given about astronomy events happening. van Kerkwijk was evidently passionate about the material, though some students felt he should have spent more time explaining key concepts. His lecture slides, however, were seen as simple and easy to under- stand. AST 210H1F
