- Indeed the computer homework takes a large portion of time which we are supposed to dedicate to the course. So, I had to slash the time which I was ment to put on studying the concept and course book, instead.» (Adequate)

- It consume lots of time so we did not get enough time for taking preparation for final exam» (Very bad idea)
- indeed it was nice to see what happens to an electron or an electron packet encountring some barriers. But the time cost is not proportional to what we learn.» (Neutral)
- Would have been nice with some easy introductory problems on each topic so that you get a hang of it before you start working with the actual Homework problems, which sometimes were very tricky. » (Good idea)

- If I had had the solutions to problems that I could not solve on my own sooner, it would have helped me understand newer topics much better as they came along. Also, studying for the exam would have been much easier.» (Yes, they helped somewhat)
- yes, especially solved problems !!!» (Yes, they helped very much)

- it"s better to have more emphasise on concepts rather than having only mathematic formulas.» (Adequate)

17. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Accessibility of the teachers regarding help and feedback»
- Recitations, the number of h/w questions for each week - it"s reasonable.»
- Computer project, learned a lot.»
- The computer project had taken more than 80% of our time and we didnt had much time to do home work assignments. There is no purpose of the project.There is really less to learn from the project.»
- Giving course notes on the blackboard and the MATLAB project.»

18. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Better promotion of the afterwork and teachers should join»
- Handwritten slides -> typed slides Computer project doesn"t leave much time to prepare for the exam/recitations, it should be changed somehow..»
- Hand out solutions earlier,e.g. two weeks after recitation.»
- There should some points of homework problems.»
- More time explaining Dirac notation and how it relates to the various other wave function representations like position and momentum would be nice. A textbook with more clear explanations should be sought.»

19. Additional comments

- It would be very useful to students unfamiliar with QM to give more guidance on how to attack problems. Even when they are motivated to work on them, this may prevent them from actually learning from these exercises.»
