- Maybe, the assigments should me count to pas the course: it represents work, even if it"s usefull to know the course.» (< 15 h)
- It was mostly just working on assignment. rest in the begining of the course it look very difficult just because i didn"t have had any idea before about index notation. but gradually got used to it and things were well enough explained in lectures. so less efforts required at home.» (Ca 20 h)

- Some subjects were very elementary, and we had done much before. For example have we done much of the mechanics before, so it could be good to increase the level of this part.» (No, the goals are set too low)
- i only felt that the second part and last section the transport equation for vorticity was a bit tricky. that is may be physical meanign of all equation terms should be explained by some animations. may be » (Yes, the goals seem reasonable)
- Men det är inte rimligt i kombination med tre stora inlämningar i denna kursen plus tre stora i "Computations in mechanics".» (Yes, the goals seem reasonable)

- i would like the educators to, in general, talk more about the physics and the nature of the stuff we study, rather than copying mathematical formulas (that are easily just given with a handout). » (Large extent)
- But it needs a better introduction to index notations, maybe som extra small task on an hand out. The tricky part is not to understand the use of index notations in the lectures, but to make calculations with indexnotation was difficult (task 1 on the exam for example). » (Large extent)

- it"s good for basic exercise, but the course part is not well explained and the notations chosen are weird.» (Small extent)
- The lecture notes cover almost everything in the course in a good way. I don"t think that the Mase book brings so much more, especially since there were printing errors in the book and it was not possible to get a new one.» (Small extent)

- The 3 last years I have not been used to have this much assigment,and learnig formulas is difficult for me. I am use dto have a sheet of formulas with me at all examination,but with more difficult exercices. It takes time to learn formulas by heart, since we don"t really have time to learn them by practice.» (High)
- The parallell course did"nt take that much time, since the bachelor course covered many parts of the content.. Don"t know if that"s good or bad..» (High)
- this is manly because of the fact that my undergraduate course took ~25-30h a week. » (Too high)
- Den tyngsta läsperioden hittills på Chalmers.» (Too high)

- There were not enough new things to learn, The only new thing in the first period was the tensor notation, which was tricky, however there must be more things that can be introduced? The second period was all new for me and I didn"t have time to study it enough so I am not compentent to evaluvate it in a good manner. The third part was almost identical to the course in my undergraduate mechanics course (Hållfastighets lära F). » (Fair)
- I thought that it less theorical.» (Adequate)
- I think it"s a good course to set the basis.» (Good)
- Över lag mycket intressant.» (Good)
- Disappointed by the exam though...» (Good)
- Maybe some more examples that connects to reality» (Good)
- Because after BE this course prepares you well and you can get a taste of the tracks and seleciton is easy .. it was excellent.» (Excellent)

25. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- the content seems fine»
- The assignments»
- Assignments»
- Everything »
- keep the assignments and the general plan of the course. »
- Entire content is greatespecially part 2 and 3 they are good enough . in part one index notation needs more expalination. its very useful and once you understan it, it make things very easy for next 2 parts.»
- Assignments»
- It good to get a repetition of the basics of mechanics. The assignments are good and relevant, and make you study the whole period.»
- The assignments»
- The assignments»
- The Part II was very good.»
- I think the first part should be completed with other general materials for continuum mechanics.»
- Assignments and lecture notes»

26. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- I think the summary at each beginning of lecture is a good idea, but it definitly take too much time. It should be shortened»
- The exam...»
- Maby every definition in the Learning outcomes in part II is useful to be able to derive. »
- Some "räkneövningar" instead of only computerlaborations in parts 2 and 3. »
- it"s not good to have the deadlines set so far away. tight them up and maybe drop a few questions so everything can be done in the beginning of week 6 (say monday). »
- a bit more time be given to part 2 which i felt was less. »
- The exam =) It felt as if our exam was orthogonal to all other exams in R^3. Keep that up.»
- assigment should count»
- The level of the third part could be increased, because it was a bit too basic.»
- Better indtroduction to index notations»
- More time should be alloted to Solid mechanics.»
- nothing»
- Maybe find a replacement to the Mase book. It was not friendly to read.»

27. Additional comments

- I liked the course, it could however contain more information. »
- both the instructors and the TA"s were of great help and they know what they are required to do and they were sucessful. it was pleasure taking this course and getting all the knowledge. thak you . »
- The assignments are a good way to learn some of the goals and to check off some points in the learning outcomes.»
- Course is good.They(faculties) carried the course in right way.I am satisfied with this.»
