I really enjoyed this course and I will remember it for the rest of my life. The format of the course was to solve a series of difficult problems with little guidance but with reference to a set of lectures that gave practical descriptions of methods that could be applied to the problems. What made me like the course was that it treated its students with respect and showed us how to solve difficult problems without out any hand holding. There were many ways this course could be improved upon (more written notes, more direction etc) but that misses the point. This course was inspiring because \- the assessment problems were challenging. \- the lectures explained how to think about problems like the assessment problems but not how to solve the assessment problems per se. I thought that I was learning useful skills and not just trying to get good grades. \- the lectures showed a great love of the subject being taught which rubbed off on me.
