The Dux of our school thanked her maths teacher in her formal speech. She said “She made me realize that 4 unit is not so hard”. Morris made me realize that this course is not as challenging as I first thought. I leave reassured, but feel that I need to work on my complex numbers.

Wish the course was longer. I would have loved to go through the harder Ext 1 part of the course.

The course has given me a lot of insight into how to teach Ext 2. The ideas are relevant to each topic was great for myself who is about to teach Ext 2.

Finally as in-service this helped me teach maths. Very relevant software demonstrated was excellent. Would like something on the new courses. Perhaps something on maximizing marks which is what I thought was also going to be presented.

Wish this was 2 day course so we could go a little slower,do more examples,ask more questions and play with the software.
