Easily the best CSI professor I've had. Exams contain no surprises, lectures are engaging, and professor is cheerful and clear (also emails back very quickly for assignment questions!). Attend class, pay attention to everything, and do your assignments, and you'll do well. I loved this class, but would take any course if taught by Ms Boyd!

5/5 would recommend. This is the type of prof that makes you want to take a certain course simply because she's teaching it. Great lecturer, crystal clear expectations for assignments and exams, good class notes, and very fair. Show up to class, fill in the notes she provides, and participate, and you'll have nothing to complain about :)

Comment:
She's always smiling and giggly. But I don't like her teaching style, what she says in class is what goes. If you solve it using a diffrent method and still get the same answer you'll get part marks. But she's willing to answer any question during her office hours, if there isn't a line of students. Don't buy the textbook its just a guide.

Definitely my favourite prof in the faculty. She gives you these fill-in-the-blank lecture notes that you follow along with for the lectures; I find them extremely useful and very well executed. She gives great lectures, has great lecture notes, and has a great sense of humour. Fun to talk to outside of class, as well.

Amazing teacher! Explain things very well by writingdrawing in her tablet, and it's much better than reading any textbooks yourself. Textbook not needed, but must not skip class, since everything is displayed in class. Many tests, no assignments. Practices with answers are released before tests. I'd love to try her other courses.

Comment:
In the faculty of engineering/csi I'd say she is probably one of the best. Although I could not stand her teaching style, and her voice was so damn annoying. Her tone of voice sounded like she thought we were pre school kids. Her notes are only given out in class so it's pretty much mandatory to go. Her examples help 100% with assignments/exams.

She is definitely one of the best professors. She is very clear about materials. Assignments and exams reflect back on what we learned during the class so I always feel everything makes sense. She loves what she does and teaches very well. 5 stars for sure. Extremely recommended!
