- Well i think that the classes gave very little to the understanding of the course. The lecture notes not very good. The way they described and solved the problem was not very good. » (100%)

- Helt värdelöst förklarat de där med 3d grejset» (The goal has not been fullfilled)
- Before you see this goal, you have to accept lots of new concepts and notations. It is really a smart way to express 3D or even higher space in a extremely compact way, which spent me so much energy to get in these domains. The process is torture, but I gain a lot afterwards.» (The goal has been fullfilled)

- This part is quite important even in material science. The curve fitting function is amazing, and the thinking of the plasticity is different. I learned plasticity in a fresh, modelling perspective. But, If more material or physical interpretation would be provided, the course will be perfect. » (This goal has been fulfilled)

- The goals of the course are good. The problem is that the teacher have problem teaching the student anything. He is a cool guy if you talk to him after the lecture but he is not very pedagogical. » (Yes, the goals seem reasonable)
- I talked with my coordinate in Advanced Engineering Materials about this course a lot. She said that this course is given by Applied Mechanics division together with Materials division, but the connection is lost due you changed a coordinator. I guess it could be good to cooperate again since material mechanics has a "material" with mechanics.» (Yes, the goals seem reasonable)

- On the exam there was a few "additional questions". When the teachen went through some of the in class he brought upp some thing i havent heard before and i dont thing that is okej.» (To some extent)
- don"t like the idea with konowing the questions before the exam, it"s better to formulate the goal more specific so that one know what to learn. » (To some extent)
- Very good with the dugga» (Yes, definitely)

- well the lectures did not give the information you needed to understand the questions. » (some extent)
- Runesson är och förblir kung, man fattade när han snackade om saker på duggaförhöret» (some extent)
- Just call it oral examination or examinating discussion or something. Skip the word dugga. Dugga for me is midterm exam.» (some extent)
- classess were not that much usefull. i just learn most of the things by own studying.» (some extent)
- Good to have but I think it is to much to do in the end of the course. Kenneth Runesson was good to have at the dugga. He explained many things very good.» (some extent)
- it would have been better to have the dugga earlier in the course, lv5?, maybee without the last quesstions then.. » (some extent)
- I love the type of exam, you can really learn from others and the teacher.» (great extent)

- The assignment was very bad. i dont thing you learn anything by converting mathematica code to matlab. And if you would figure it out by youself you needed mutch more knowledge than you got from the lectures. » (Small extent)
- It was hard to understand what to do. You just did as it stood in the hand out and tried to figure out which equations that were missing. » (Some extent)
- The pseudo code might be a little much help. There"s a risk that people just copy the code and doesnt understand what it does.» (Large extent)
- didn"t like the way with the pseudocode, i think one learns more when doing it by yourself but maybe it"s not possile with the short times avalliable» (Large extent)
- Thank you for your help, we once got stuck on assignment one, which made us a little bit nervous. If I am right, the assignment not only help people improved their programming but also urged us to discuss what is important as well as practical in this course.» (Great extent)

- Ragnar goes from very clear to very unclear in his teaching, but he is always helpful.» (Some extent)
- Ragnar has to work on his spoken english. It"s really hard to follow the lectures. Sometimes he uses swedish words to fill in the blanks were he doesnt know the word. Thats unacceptable for the foreign country students.» (Some extent)
- Though I could follow your pace after the 7th lecture, the lecture notes and the literatures helped me.» (Great extent)

- To understand anything you needed the literature.» (Some extent)
- Föreläsningsanteckningarna va hyffsade, primern va bra» (Large extent)
- The Primer...» (Great extent)
- As I mentioned above, they a quite helpful. But sometimes, they are quite brief. You may not dig deeper into the subject with only the compendium and without details.» (Great extent)

- Often the homepage was down. No proper course pm.» (Very badly)
- It would have worked very good if the handsout contained something useful.» (Rather badly)
- Jävla klantigt att lämna ut assignment 1 i tredje läsveckan» (Rather badly)
- The homepage should newer be down... » (Rather badly)
- would be good if changes in documents on the homepage were indicated in some way.. would also appreciate if ragnar could update the lecture notes on the homepage when he finds errors in them, can be hard to know what"s correct if one look back later.» (Rather well)
- Some material could have been posted earlier on the web page» (Very well)

- Ragnar makes everything complicated. Things i already new became hard.» (Fair)
- i had high expectaions on this course, but they were not fullfilled.i missed the link to the material behaviour and the micro structure. i would have liked to have more examples with materials behaving in different ways.. » (Fair)
- Nice contents of the course but the learn-in was too slow. Often it was hard to understand questions and arguments because of the language. » (Adequate)
- except for the exam that i did some stupid errors.» (Excellent)

20. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The assignments.»
- The litterature.»
- Computer assignments and duggafrågor.»
- The content of the course.»
- assignments»
- dugga»
- Assignments»
- the CA"s. »
- The computer assignments and the dugga (change the name to examinating discussion). »
- assignments.lecture notes.»
- The assignments»
- J2-hardening lab»
- the questions helping the students to find the focus in the course, but they dont have to be the nes for the exam. »
- The examination with computer assignments, dugga and exam»

21. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- I think it has been hard to get a grip of why we have done some of the calculations, what we want to achieve with it. »
- Introduce some extra lectures in Swedish every week: That would have helped me a lot to understand the course material. I think Ragnar is a much better teacher when he speaks Swedish as well. »
- Couple more to reality. What is it we model? Put the equations into context. Clearify what is model concepts and what is physical.»
- The handouts and the computer labs.»
- Föreläsaren och övningsledarna»
- Teaching, book/litterature, exercises.»
- the written exam»
- maybe more cooperation with materials? mechanics needs material to be material mechanics!!»
- maybe more talk around the subject on the lectures, and maybe not only new equations... »
- Better prepared lectures with better spoken english.»
- teaching methods.»
- Kenneth Runesson should be lecturing. I think he can explain things better. At least did he do that at the dugga.»
- More problem solving in labs, More explanations of the different phenomena in the models.»
- the lectures should contain more explaining rather than racing through many pages of formulas.»

22. Additional comments

- It sounded interesting at first and I thought I would learn about materials cooperating in mechanics. This I haven"t learned at all. I have learnt some equations, but I don"t know when to use them. The exercises you didn"t need to have any understanding about the facts to complete. They just took a lot of time. I would have liked shorter, but more informative exercises. I also would have liked some organization of the teaching. I think this could be a really interesting course working a bit on what the students wants to learn. I would have liked to, as I mentioned, use the fact that there is different materials in my mechanic-calculations. That is a piece i"m missing in my education. The book is a mess. Some examples of when you can use it, more pictures, and smaller text. And, finally, as I said, I"m pretty sure that this can be a really appreciated course, if you just find out what the students want to learn.»
- By the way, one need finite element method knowledge to study this course well. Fortunately, I was take that at the same time.»
- The lab-assistants should be a little more prepared to be able to suggest solutions to problems in the labs.»
- unfortunatly the course wasn"t as interesting as the field of material mechanics..»
