- Expecially useful when exercises were worked out during the lecture.» (4: Good)
- Gärna mer explicita räkningar på föreläsningarna, ett flertal studier inom pedagogik har visat att powerpoint är ett synnerligen dåligt instrument för utlärning.» (3: Average)
- Powerpoint fungerar tyvärr inget bra för den här typen av kurser. Det blir ingen "dynamik" i informationsflödet.» (2: Below average)
- PowerPoint is a worthless method. Impossible to keep up the attention, very hard to remember anything when you are allowed to stay passive. Afternoon lectures is very bad for me personally, but that"s probably» (2: Below average)
- Unfortunately, I couldn"t go to the lectures because I was doublebooked. » (No opinion)

- Too fast to follow, but the content was nicely linked to homeworks.» (4: Good)
- Too many problems at too little time.» (4: Good)
- I went to some of these.» (4: Good)
- Det var för många uppgifter på för få tillfällen, det hade varit bättre om Ling gick igenom, mer i detalj, och långsammare ett färre antal uppgifter.» (3: Average)
- Bra att få bra lösningar på många problem. Men en större del av tiden bör läggas på att ge konceptuell förståelse snarare än räknefärdighet.» (3: Average)
- More discussion around the problems would be good. The TA should be able to contribute with more then just copying whats in the notes.» (3: Average)
- Hard to keep with the course plan. The problem sessions would probably have been very useful if I had time to be more prepared.» (3: Average)
- Not there.» (No opinion)

- Alldeles för hård arbetsbelastning för en kurs som ges på halvfart, den kurs jag läste parallellt blev lidande för att jag la så många timmar på kvanten» (Around 30 hours/week)
- To many and to "messy" home assignments. I didn"t have any time to read the book.» (Around 30 hours/week)

Good»15 75%
Excellent»1 5%

Genomsnitt: 3.85

- Could be much more examples and caculations on real problems, most of the things where way to abstract!! » (Good)
- Nice exercises, well connected to homeworks. Since this course is offered to other departments maybe yo must be aware of different backgrounds, but in general it was a good course, I learned a lot.» (Good)
- Den mest krävande, men också den roligaste fysikkurs jag har gått!» (Good)

17. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- All.»
- Homeworks and exercises.»
- Homeworks»
- The problem sets. Great way to actually learn.»
- I think that the lectures are good as they are and should be kept as they are.»
- Inlämningsuppgifterna, fast kanske modifierade så att de ej tar så mycket tid. Det skulle för min del varit bättre om inlämningsuppgifterna gav färre poäng och tog mindre tid.»
- Bra inlämningsuppgifter, även om de var lite väl tidskrävande.»
- The lectures with Stellan was good.»
- the existence of homework»
- all of these knowledges»
- most of it»
- Home exercises»
- Most things. Weekly homeworks are very good for learning.»

18. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Too much workload, problems take much more then 10 h per week, almost 30 h per week I would say. I thought that when taking this course we would actually learn how to apply quantum mechanics to problems that are real, but the thins we calulated wher way to abstract.»
- None.»
- Some lectures were not completely clear and at the end they were not evaluated in the final exam, like bell inequalities, EPR paradox, entanglement, connection to classical physics, etc. If these are not going to be evaluated I would prefer to have either exercise session or a lighter, more "narrative" introduction to these topics.»
- Perhaps considering removing the final exam, and put more focus into the problem sets.»
- nothing really.»
- se föregående fråga»
- Ingen Powerpoint, mer konceptuell förståelse på räkneövningarna. Även om Sakurai känns okej när man väl har kommit in i ämnet, så finns det nog mer pedagogiska böcker...»
- The TA classes should be more discussion and less copying of the lecture notes. Perhaps explain the theory deeper and do more simple examples to enlighten conceptually difficult parts.»
- No Powerpoint! less extensive homework»
- For me, the teacher speaks kind of fast.»
- More icecream»

19. Please provide any additional comments

If you have opinions on it, comment on this course evaluation.

- None.»
- The exam was a bit diffcult since you did not know what you were suppose to know. It would be nice to have some sort of hand out with questions that might be asked at the exam.»
