Summarizing questions

14. What is your general impression of the course?

8 svarande

Poor»0 0%
Fair»1 12%
Adequate»0 0%
Good»7 87%
Excellent»0 0%

Genomsnitt: 3.75

- I would have gained more knowledge of the subject if the excercices were handed sooner and less time spent on assignments.» (Fair)
- The theoretical part were interestiong and the CA"s good but a bit to extensive.» (Good)

15. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The assignments is a very good way to learn the course content. But alot of time were spent on trying to find errors in some code and the must be avoided.»
- Three computer assignments are good for learning the course and should definitely be preserved to next year. »
- That the exam questions was not exactly as those handed out.»
- The course material is good and "easy" to understand/follow. With corrections and maybe some examples it will be even better. »

16. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- The workload must be lesser. Perhaps focus the lectures on some importent part and make sure that everybody catches the main parts. Perhaps skip the OH-slides because it is hard to follow, or at least make the number of slides smaller.»
- I guess it is a good idea that this course be in the second quarter especially after the course "Computational Nonlinear Mechanics". Very topics were unclear and we just used them in the Matlab codes to get the answer, but nonlinear modeling, polar decomposition, objectivity, first/second piola kirchhoff stress and many other issues were very unclear at that time, and we are realizing now that "computational nonlinear mechanics" should be a pre-requisite for the "advanced material mechanics" course. »
- Hand out the questions to each chapter along the course. Not all at the end.»
- Assignments.»
- The time consuming CA"s»

17. Additional comments

- My only complaint is about the lack of help during the exam week.»
- It would have been easier to do the assignments if we had had better fellow-charts for programming that at least described the algorithm well for us. »
