Test of size Survey: Comments More practice on microcode processes. more whiteboarding is encouraged, it helps us think through the microcode optimization problems. I do not have enough knowledge to answer this. I think the assumption that everyone had seen the LC3 state diagram kind of hindered lecture. If I had not taken 360M prior, the lecture would have been completely over my head. Also, I am not sure if the scope of this class contains how to derive microcode specifically, but if it does, we didn't cover it enough. The differences between microcode and ISAs was unclear at certain points Still have trouble differentiating between ISA and microarchitecture. Sometimes students questions that are a little unclear, but you seem to grasp them and it would be helpful if you would rephrase the question for the class. I think the teacher could have said more about the lc3 isa and architecture. It was good. No suggestions for now. I understood most of the stuff. I am a graduate student and have not taken the 306 class. So when you comparing the LC-3b with Dr.Patt's LC-3 architecture, it becomes a bit difficult for me to follow as I do not have that background. Since you did not receive our comments for the second lecture, I am posting them here again. I thought that we spent far too much time with the chicken and peanut problem that we ran out of time towards the end of the lecture and failed to cover some slides. The example was important for understanding the fundamentals by drawing an analogy with something common. Nevertheless I think we spent more time on it than it deserved :-) Everything else has been great so far. Your accent and delivery make it easy to follow the lecture.
