the class has 4 lab reports and 1 presentation. do not expect to get a good grade on the first lab report because the TA graded very harsh on the first one as well as the second lab report. but the third and fourth lab, they gave us very good grade overall. You will be assigned to do different 4 labs with specific lab partners. 1 new lab every 2 week. some labs can be finished in only 5 hours (1 lab period) but some will take the whole 2 weeks (4 lab periods). do not expect to learn much from the lecture by the professor. It was confusing . the lecture does take attendance. the lab report is expected to be no longer than 15 pages (single space). The TAs were very helpful. The presentation is in week 10th, u will choose one of the lab that u did and basically just present what u did and your result in front of TAs, labmates and professor. that's it, no midterm, no final, just 4 lab report and 1 presentation, which is amazing. good luck.

If you are taking this course with Professor Bouchard, this is what you should expect:
Professor:
- does not motivate yet strongly discourage learning in class. Through the course of this semester, he has been adamant in his way of teaching, rejecting any challenges raised by the students and got irritated easily, responding “If you do not believe in X concept, you should not do science”.
- does not answer student’s questions after class; give only overly general responses or merely “you should know this”.
- scares students in class, constantly claiming that he is not afraid to fail seniors.
- fails to retreat students’ equally; have preference over some selected group of students; always treat these students with patience while ignoring or occasionally castigating other less preferred students. A concrete example is that, whenever I get answers to questions he raises wrong in class, Prof. Bouchard consistently used discouraging words like “Wrong” and “No” and did not let me continue answering the question, whereas he treats other student with much more patience, using words like “try harder” or “thinker deeper” while waiting for their answers. Such disparity in treatment directly impacted my passion for this class and discouraged me from participating in class discussion or engage in intellectual thinking.

TA:
- highly unfamiliar with the course material, could not help with students’ lab report or questions related to class material
- demonstrate unprofessionalism in grading: carelessly glance over students’ lab report carefully and do not assign grades based on a uniform standard; fail to respond to students’ re-grading request when points are unfairly deducted

But Professor Bouchard's notes are very clear and the course will indeed improve your Matlab skill and stats to a great extent. Even though the average score of the test is around or below 30/100 and the first lab report grade is also 30/100, I received satisfactory scores for this class. If you study really hard your hard work will pay off.
