Goals and their fulfillment

The course syllabus states the course goals in terms of learning outcomes, i.e., knowledge, skills and attitudes to be acquired by the student during the course.

I have not seen/read the goals»1 11%
The goals are difficult to understand»1 11%
The goals give some guidance, but could be clearer»4 44%
The goals clearly describe what I am supposed to learn»3 33%

Genomsnitt: 3

- The course did not contain what was stated in the curse syllabus though.» (The goals clearly describe what I am supposed to learn)

4. Are the goals reasonable considering your background and the number of credits?

Yes, definitely»1 14%

- The course did not include all it was supposed to. For example band structure calculations and disordered matter was not included. Of course I don"t know if this was intentional and the course goals were just not updated. » (To some extent)
- Questions could have been more evenly distributed among the lectures/course topics. Exam should have been more difficult since it was an open book exam (there was time to find everything you needed in the book).» (To some extent)

- I really haven"t had that much time to read the literature, but the handouts and review questions have been quite useful.» (Some extent)
- The problem is that neither the used course book (Ashcroft) nor Marder covered the whole field of the lecture.» (Some extent)
- Lecture notes could have better flow (they were difficult to read). Spell check!» (Some extent)
- I mainly concentrated on the text book, since there were some misleading mistakes in the lecture notes.» (Great extent)

- Would have been better if the lecture notes had been handed out earlier. The very latest should be right before the lecture.» (Rather well)

Genomsnitt: 4

- Hard=good, otherwise it will be boring. This part of the course could be extended, preferably with some qualitative questions as well. Now it is mostly a mathematical exercise.» (Hard)
- I think the problems were more mathematical than physical. I would have liked them better if the physical part of the problem would have been the most important part.» (Hard)

Overall impression and specific recommendations

13. What is your general impression of the course?

9 svarande

Poor»1 11%
Fair»5 55%
Good»3 33%
Excellent»0 0%

Genomsnitt: 2.22

- The topic is very interesting, but it was sometimes very confusing to follow the lecture ->compare additional comments» (Fair)
- Leonid is good at explaining things but could improve his black board technique a bit. Sometimes it gets very confusing with formulas in no particular order. » (Fair)
- I would hav appreciated if more applications of the different phenomena had been mentioned, like for example MR.» (Fair)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The review questions are a good idea. Also, doing mostly calculations on the homeworks and mostly qualitative questions on the exam is a good thing. »
- it is nice to cover this huge amount of different topics in this course and to get a nice overview over condensed matter physics»
- The theoretical exam.»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- I am working with semiconductors and I hoped that I could learn something about it in the course. But there was nothing special. You should definitely add a semiconductor part to this course.»
- It seems like the lecturer has too little time to prepare handouts, since there are quite a few mistakes in them. Also, it would be good either to update the course goals or include all that is supposed to be included according to the present goals .»
- Improve the lecture notes. »
- All the errors on the blach board during the lectures and in the lecture notes. »
- Less content, but more profound. Better text books, better handouts, better structured topics. More exercises and examples, and a problem solving class.» (den här kommentaren har blivit redigerad i efterhand)

16. Additional comments

- In the lecture it would be very useful if the topic is also stated at the blackboard. Nobody would also mind if the teacher uses his lecture notes as a support to his writings on the blackboard. Many mistakes (like - signs, missing constants) could be prevented in this way. It was very often quite confusing to follow the lecture, because errors on the blackboard threw me out of my concept and I did not understand anymore what the calculations were all about. Still I think the teacher put much effort into the lecture (it was very nice to get a detailed comment on the topic of each leacture before it started)»
