Participant Index 21 It would be really nice if notes could be published at the beginning of the semester and available through Copy Tech. That way, we'd all have all the notes in a nice, neat place, and it would make paper reference much easier. 23 The TAs and professor office hours are some of the best things about this course. It's nice to have such a huge support system for help. 43 The Computers sections is very rough. The material is taught to quickly and too much is expected of us. We are all supposed to be first time programers, but are not treated that way. The problems are very hard and take an exhorbent amount of time to complete and are often graded very stictly and harshly.

Partial credit was very little and the simplest mistakes attracted the heaviest penalties. May be, an oral evaluation might be better at evaluating how much I learnt. The best parts of the subject. Participant Index 1 exciting subjects, like thermodynamics, and structures to some degree. 2 I really like the personalized feeling. I love the fact that the professors and TA's know (or at least try to Page 1 of 9 16.010/020 Unified Engineering I & II The best parts of the subject. Participant Index remember) my name. I love the way students work together and help each other learn the material. It's particularly nice that the class is not graded on a curve, so people don't become overly competitive....
