- I dont like slides as much instead of the blackboard, but I think that Peter said something about an injury was the cause of this. I really like that the lecture notes was given on each lesson! » (Rather good)
- I understand that Peter had to use OH-slides, but sometimes I lost the concentration because I didn"t write anything. But it was good that we got the handouts on the lessons, because it can be easy to forget to print them.» (Rather good)
- I like the way it is presented: we "only" have to follow without taking any note, and so we can really focus on what"s going on.» (Very good)
- Great leactures. It was good that we also got the lecture notes printed.» (Very good)

- It`s better to have the answers rather than write them down during sessions.» (?)
- I think it was pretty repedative, however since it was basically the same couple of methodes on different equation it is bound to happend. Maybe spend more time on the last chapters, propagation of sound waves in plates. » (Rather bad)
- Not attended» (No opinion)

- and in writing on the course page» (Yes)
- it"s ok this way, since if we have problems we could always ask.» (No)
- I think the solution strategy is most important, I don"t learn so much from watching elementary calculations.» (No)
- There is no need for explicit solotions since the probability of making a error is rather high when using fourier series and these kinds of larger problems. The important isn"t the answer but what stratergy to utilize, in my opinion. » (No)
- I think it was clear enough. When it was something really complicated, we also got handouts. » (No)

11. Solving the more extensive problems.

What strategy do you prefer for the more involved solutions (besides putting them on the home page):


- If there are a time demanding step that have been done many times before, it is good to take it on the projector, otherwise the blackboard is the best option.»

- for a fundamental course I dont see any need to a more complicated and comprehensice textbook» (Rather bad)

- Was ok» (?)
- The exam had elements on parts from the whole course which was good, however it seemed like every other exam which made it really easy to practice for. I think it is bad to have the course litterature on the exam. One should have the b.c and other stuff like ducanfunctions on paper. This would allow for some theory questions.» (Rather good)
- no real suprise about it, level ok I think.» (Very good)
