- Mostly boring and uninspiring.» (Poor)
- I can´,t see what I as a civil engineer could use from this course when I´,m done with my education, it was too theoretical.» (Fair)
- Pretty much error estimates. Maybe the course could focus a bit more on practising the finite element method?» (Adequate)
- A very good course» (Good)
- Great course that inspired further learning about PDEs. A subject which I previously had no particular interest in.» (Excellent)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The workload was adequate.»
- The number of old exams available.»
- Mohammed»
- The first lab.»
- Material online.»
- The projects/assignment»
- Mohammed»
- Mohammed was a good lecturer who knew the material and presented it in a structured way. He was also very helpful in answering questions.»
- The assignments»
- I don"t know.»
- Muhammad! »
- Lecture notes»
- Muhammads lecture notes.»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Solutions to excersises, and the excersises could be more similar to those on the exam.»
- More examples of when the theory is used in practise.»
- Nothing really.»
- Title! It is much more numerical analysis than PDE.»
- nothing»
- The excercise leader was not very good, he did not write enough information during class and the notes were therefore sometimes hard to follow afterwards. Both Mohammed and the exercise leader could perhaps make a bigger difference between u and U, in the beginning of the course it was very confusing since they looked exactly the same.»
- More focus on solving PDE than on estimates»
- Something with the lectures, it was difficult to follow.»
- That Mohammad"s own material should be the main course material, not because the present is bad, but for the reason that it reflects the course much better. Its more clear what the students should learn etc. »

16. Additional comments

- None»
- The opinions of the rude students from teknisk matematik, year 3 did not reflect what the class thought. They asked questions in swedish and whispered loudly which disturbed both Mohammed and the class. Perhapd Mohammed could have stressed the importance of asking questions in english by repeating the question in english and then answering it.»
- I put very little effort in this course, I have to admit.»
