Goals and goal fulfilment

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.

4. How understandable are the course goals?

23 svarande

I have not seen/read the goals»7 30%
The goals are difficult to understand»2 8%
The goals give some guidance, but could be clearer»6 26%
The goals clearly describe what I am supposed to learn»8 34%

Genomsnitt: 2.65

- There was no information about the grading when the course started, it was only announced much later. Chalmers require that the grade levels are included in the course PM which must be handed out when the course starts.» (The goals are difficult to understand)
- It would be nice to have a link to the course goals from the course web page.» (The goals give some guidance, but could be clearer)

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

Answer this this question and the succeeding one, only if you do know the course goals.

18 svarande

No, the goals are set too low»1 5%
Yes, the goals seem reasonable»16 88%
No, the goals are set too high»1 5%

Genomsnitt: 2

- For students with previous work in differential equations the goals can feel somewhat low.» (Yes, the goals seem reasonable)

6. Did the examination assess whether you have reached the goals?

19 svarande

No, not at all»0 0%
To some extent»7 36%
Yes, definitely»10 52%
I don"t know/have not been examined yet»2 10%

Genomsnitt: 2.73

- To much focus was on guessing what questions the examiner wanted answered. It should be clear what questions to answer. » (To some extent)
- The examination was consistent and very good compared to Neural Networks where the examination criteria were sometimes absurd and non-objective» (Yes, definitely)

Teaching and course administration

7. Comparing take-home vs regular exam do you:

23 svarande

Much prefer regular exam»2 8%
Prefer regular exam»0 0%
Have no opinion»1 4%
Prefer take-home exam»9 39%
Much prefer take-home exam»11 47%

Genomsnitt: 4.17

- Both have pros and cons, within an exam set up it is harder to in a good way incorporate computational task, which is why take home exam is probably better in my opinion.» (Prefer take-home exam)
- Even if I tend to do better on regular exams, I think a take-home makes me learn more.» (Prefer take-home exam)
- The homework problems help you learn and the knowledge sinks in better when you work on it yourself.» (Much prefer take-home exam)
- Taking off one whole point for not copying the algorithm which was specifically referenced on the examples sheet was a bit much. Especially since we are allowed to reference the lecture notes (and course book) in other cases.» (Much prefer take-home exam)
- in this course take home problems are preferable as an exame form» (Much prefer take-home exam)

- Excellent lectures.» (Large extent)
- Bernhad is agreate teacher» (Large extent)
- Bernhard presented the course topics in a very good manner, making generalisations, connections between fields and providing illuminating discussions on models and practical experience.» (Great extent)

Some extent»5 21%
Large extent»7 30%

- The book was of great help, especially in the beginning.» (Large extent)
- Very good lecture notes!» (Great extent)
- lecture notes are greate» (Great extent)

Genomsnitt: 3.13

- The homepage was never updated with any new information. Would be nice if there was a lecture plan available.» (Rather badly)
- I would like to hand in example sheets via internet. » (Rather badly)
- The lecture notes did (as you know) not have all pages in the beginning, which was, and is, rather confusing.» (Rather well)
- All deadline dates must be stated before the course starts, which is also stated in the Chalmers rules. The last example sheet was made public too late.» (Rather well)
- However I do think that the deadline penalty was a bit too harsh.» (Rather well)

- It would have been nice if the maths would have been linked more to the thing it was trying to describe. Especially when dealing with dimensionless variables.» (Adequate)
- I now know whjat linear stability analysis is:D» (Good)
- The material taught and the interesting home problems provided good learning conditions and I felt the assimilation of material was efficient.» (Good)

16. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Bernhard and Jonas as teachers. »
- The homework, teacher and the part about synchronisation»
- I enjoyed the fact that we had both analytical and programing problems. »
- The fast grading of the example sheets.»
- Examples sheets.»
- Example sheet 4»
- Example sheets»
- The lecture notes (modified to contain the whole course)»
- Take-Home Exams»
- The examination style.»
- The lectures are very interesting.»
- The form of examination with examples sheets. »
- The connection with current research should be kept and, as much as possible, be made a constant of the course.»

17. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- The course worked out really good for me, don"t have anything that I can say would be better changing.»
- Better homepage, clear information about what points are required for what grades.»
- Clearer explanation of what to do in the examples sheets, and also less divergence between the examples classes and the sheets.»
- Either it must be made much more explicit what is required in the example sheet answers to get full points OR the requirements for getting grade 5 must be lowered to the normal 90%.»
- See number 15.»
- Try to make the example sheets more interesting and allow room for inovative problem solving.»
- More focus on mathematical difficulties and less focus on guessing what questions to answer. »
- 1. Lecture note, which was not readable and understandable and with lots of reprodunction and copying mistakes which caused lots of distractions. 2. Way of teaching. Bernhard is a knowledgable person but being knowledgable and being a good teacher are two completely different things. Bernhard is a extremely bad teacher for teaching new material for new students. 3. adding more complementary material to course, like videos and things like that to make it more understandable»
