A bit too theoretical»4 28%
Just right»9 64%

13 svarande

Binary Search»6 46%
Complexity»6 46%
Aktiehandel»0 0%
Red-black trees»1 7%

Genomsnitt: 1.69

- None actually. I would actually add another lab, something that covers the graph part of the course. » (?)
- Although it was a good smooth start to the course, and not a bad lab, it is the one that had the least to teach. The concept of dynamic arrays is easy enough to understand without a lab» (Binary Search)
- I found all labs to be very helpful, but I felt that the complexity part should"ve been handled a bit more in-depth.» (Complexity)
- All were good but the complexity hand-in felt less inspired/inspiring.» (Complexity)

11. If you could keep one lab from the course next year, which would you keep?

14 svarande

Binary Search»1 7%
Complexity»0 0%
Aktiehandel»6 42%
Red-black trees»7 50%

Genomsnitt: 3.35

- One of the more fun labs. I felt that there should"ve been a bit more practical Haskell earlier on in the course. A bit too much time had to be put into relearning bits of Haskell syntax.» (Aktiehandel)
- Very interesting and fun lab. Took some time to get the recursive thinking back again, but once you did, it went pretty smooth. » (Red-black trees)
- I liked that we had java AND haskell labs.» (Red-black trees)
- It was arough ride, but red-black trees are pretty hard to grasp, so the lab helped alot.» (Red-black trees)

12. How were the lectures?

14 svarande

Boring»1 7%
Ok»7 50%
Interesting»4 28%
Didn"t go»2 14%

Genomsnitt: 2.5

- A bit slow at times.» (Ok)
- Sometimes needed to go more to the point. Examples were sometimes too long, even when it was easy to understand the idea right away.» (Ok)
- Nick is an awesome guy, and so were the lectures.» (Interesting)
- Didn"t attend enough to have an opinion, but "interesting" would be my answer from what I saw.» (Didn"t go)

13. Were the lecture slides useful?

Very useful»7 50%
Quite useful»6 42%
So-so»1 7%
Not very useful»0 0%
Useless»0 0%

Genomsnitt: 1.57

- They basically covered every step of any algorithm, which is pretty good, when learning about them.» (Very useful)
- Very clear lecture slides, easy to follow and grasp the concept. A big reason why I didn"t attend any lectures is that I had an easy time following the slides so it felt more efficient. Only comlaint I would come up with (minor one) is that there sometimes there were a 20+ slideshow of one example of an algorhitm in action.» (Very useful)
- The longer examples could be skipped, sometimes there were more than twenty almost identical slides. Also the colouring in those could use some more contrast. » (So-so)

14. To what extent has the teaching been of help for your learning?

14 svarande

Small extent»0 0%
Some extent»5 35%
Large extent»7 50%
Great extent»2 14%

Genomsnitt: 2.78

- If teaching includes the slides, it"s what I leaned on. If I didn"t have slides I"m sure the lectures would"ve been great for that too.» (Great extent)

Didn"t use the book»8 57%

Genomsnitt: 4.71

- I used the other book by the same author but think the writing style was ckear and the material closedly followed the course.» (Quite useful)
- Mostly learned from the labs.» (So-so)

- The correcting of labs should have gone a lot smoother. We had to wait for eleven days to get a lab response!» (Rather well)
- Feedback on labs came back very late once or twice (day before final deadline)» (Rather well)
- slides up before lectures would be nice, but that"s a luxury» (Rather well)

Fair»1 7%
Adequate»2 14%
Good»8 57%
Excellent»2 14%

Genomsnitt: 3.64 (bidrar till totalt genomsnitt/jämförelseindex)

- Overall I think this is a good course but I think it would be better with a exercise hour where the longer demonstrations could fit.» (Fair)
- Taught me some important concepts» (Good)

23. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The Haskell labs.»
- The flow of the course is very good»
- The practical labs.»
- Nick Smallbone, 100%.»
- The amount of lab hours, where you can go and ask if something is unclear or have questions about the exercises,»
- Nick, he was passionate and knowledgeable, used good slides with nice summarizations.»

24. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Have the possibility to start earlier with the labs»
- Faster lab responses.»
- Some step-by-step slides on a couple of algorithms had a huge amount of slides in them. This made it hard to look through those lectures from home. I"d suggest that step-by-steps of those algorithms be presented some other way!»
- The pace, which should be a bit faster.»
- A bit faster pasted, a more challenging first lab, answers to the exercises the week after»
- The course assistants were not always very clear with what needed to be done with the rejected labs, it felt like the focus was more on the lab details being correct than on the learning.»
- Bring the abstraction level up or down a step. The course seems stuck between an overview of data structures and memorizing implementation details, not really achieving either.»

25. Additional comments

- Overall an interesting course with a good web page.»
- Good work!»
- In general, I enjoyed this course quite a lot. The way the data structures were presented in the lectures and how we were supposed to incorporate this knowledge in the labs was very fun.»
- As I mentioned two times earlier, more labs. I mean the theory part was great, but I wanted to implement it in some nice way, which I did, on my spare time, but yeah.»
- Thank you»
