Comment:
Doesn't give clear expectations then marks everyone down. He has designed the course in a way where there's a 'help' forum so he doesn't have to put in any work himself including answering emails from students. I put in so much work but due to his lack of giving students clear expectations than penalizing them I ended up with a average grade

Comment:
Nice guy but he should stick to computer science. I was interested in math before taking this class and now all I want to do is skip every class. Sometimes his marking is fair, sometimes it isn't. He has taught me what not to do as a teacher. I've never been so bored in a class in my whole life.

I can't believe all those ratings. Tim is fabulous! He is so funny and helpful. Admittedly, his first few classes had me worried; it seemed like we were in for a boring term, but he has come to be one of my favourite profs.

Nothing is more boring than Tim-land. Nothing like having dull notes being read off an overhead in a dull voice. Thats the whole class. Has small assignments worth next to nothing, just a waste of time.

Comment:
The tests are multiple choice based mainly on the chapters in the text. Beware that reading this text book can be VERY long and boring. However, the lab teachers are so helpful. They will do your labs for u if you act stupid enough. Hot guys teach the lab

Comment:
Lectures based around obscure facts that have zero relevance in the real world. An introduction to multi-platform tasking, programing, and hardware would be FAR more relevant here.

This was the worst class I have ever taken. His lectures do not reflect what he asks on the tests what so ever! Be prepared for 50 multiple choice questions asking Which of the following is NOT true .

Extemely easy labs. But, I think Dr. Pelton needs to teach his students more on how to operate a computer rather than giving out obscure facts (that aren't 100% correct).
