GE1350 Essential Mathematics in Daily Life

B+

Light workload and (expectedly) low grade.

The course is really simple for engineering / science, who have okay math background. But just because of this, it's hard to reach high marks, since the high scores always clutter, and when it's curved, the high score could be only a mean (average).

There are four assignments in total, with each containing 3 questions (only 10min to finish). The average mark is 23/25 for each asgmt. There's a midterm test (avg. ~65/100) taking 30% and final taking 50%. The tests contain ~10 questions, where if you make a simple mistake or stuck somewhere, 10 marks will be deducted. To get an A range, 93-97 is the bottom line, which means you cannot make any simple mistakes in midterm or final.

In conclusion, it's a simple but highly competitive course. Less effort takes more luck.

GE2204 Business Ethics and Society

A+

I do expect a course about ethics can be boring but it turns out it is more interesting. The theories and concepts are not difficult although you still need to memorize the terminologies. English is still critical element in getting good grades. If you aim for A grade, you need to work hard and revise on weekly basis.

The course does not have a mid-term or individual assignment, so you don't really feel the heavy workload until last 3 weeks (the group report, group presentation and yes, the exam). There is a mini-case with poll questions per week, which is ok as it only takes 15 minutes to read the case. (you could do it during the break time in case you forget to prepare). But the case classwork is group-based and thus, it would need extra time to work on it. Class exercises takes 10-15min to complete per week, not too bad either.

Exam is challenging (not surprising for an open-book exam). However, I do not think it is "killing" as most questions are from the textbook and the mini cases (repeat of poll questions in class). The trick is to make your own notes on weekly basis and do not wait until the last 2 weeks before you start. The ppt is her teaching tool.

Toni is very responsive with email questions so do not shy to contact her. I emailed her and ask how to get an A after the CNY break. Then, I get an advice of making notes earlier. I usually get her reply within hours in the same day, which is very nice, especially during the last critical weeks. Another good thing about her is the timely feedback. You always know your scores usaully in 2 weeks after the submission deadline. Our group able to get A grade in most of the group classworks because of her feedback, really much appreciated.

It is a trap for me. Answered/Raised 3 questions in his lectures, all feedback was B+, most of the students got B+ as well and those 3 questions carries 50% of the final course grade; completed an individual essay with 23xx words, which carries the remaining 50% of the course grade. I can say that the essay seriously pulled down my grade, the marking scheme is unclear.

B-

Professor is nice and there is quite a lot of consultation session for this course, he is willing to answer your enquiries. However, the grade/mark you received wasn't matched with his comment, he seems to be generous when giving feedback, but not at all when distributing the final result, it is quite disappointing.

其實我系2019/2020 sem A 讀嘅,見個時間岩就隨便簡左。workload唔算太多,兩個quiz(一個midterm一個final quiz, 因為肺炎全部都改take home),一個gp project(隨便簡個國家講下佢同中國嘅關係,可以拍片都可以寫essay)。

lecture真系好悶,你對政治/外交關係完全冇咩興趣嘅話你會悶死。每堂都會播記錄片比你睇,睇完會有discussion,我一次都冇答過都B左。

個gp project好簡單,傾好左用咩角度分析兩國關係之後就上網搵source,隨便搵都一大堆,你隨便rephrase下就搞掂。佢有頁數限制,我個組寫爆曬cut得好辛苦。冇presentation,你交完份gp project同考完final quiz就收得工

想靚grade嘅話我唔肯定e科算唔算,但就真係幾hea,可能因為肺炎改左做take home quiz,冇咩點溫書隨便上網抄左一堆就搞掂左。

上堂style同改功課比較hea同悶, 最好consult多幾次問清楚要求, 不過其實幾好人

Essay topic唔好揀咁悶同大路野 佢唔鐘意 新奇啲佢都比較多心機同你consult
Presentation Q&A有機會西你面同問好多問題 但最後我個組份inforgrapic個班最高分(Groupmate其實唔太好重要, 自己一個都完成到)

Consult可以用廣東話

上堂會直接點名叫人答問題
每次上堂前都要點名 遲過15分鐘就要扣分

Peter 上堂會設計好多活動讓大家可以無咁悶 (佢自己都話個課程難)
英文差都唔緊要 Peter唔會特色偏心啲native speaker
Peter功課要求清晰具體 唔洗點追問都會掌握到 同埋佢改功課好細心好詳細 如果主動問問題 佢會好有心同你講更加多comment同詳細點改會更好

Attendance: 記得唔識答都要主動撞下比下反應 Peter好認得人 靠上堂答唔答問題比分
CET: 唔好盡抄sample, 因為大部分sample都係伏 (最好提早做成份先交draft, 等peter直接comment哂你有咩改)
LDP: 咁小字就唔好搵partner, 自己一個完成 好過同人夾
Reflective writing: 要寫得全面 唔好淨係重點講一兩個point
Timed essay: 唔洗太長 我淨係寫左六百字 一定要match題目背景同起承轉合 如果唔係Grammar幾好都扣分 (例如叫你寫個故事 apply 獎學金就一定要前後寫埋apply用途, 你讀邊科, 自己優點, 唔係淨係寫個故事就夠)

功課交之前去ELC writing studio check多幾次唔難靚Grade

continuous participation 20% 只要你肯按時交200幾字assignment 就有分
Mid term 20%
Exam 40%
全部都係open book, 理解能力ok同對文學(?)有興趣基本ok
Term paper 20% 800字essay 唔sure接下來係唔係出會出翻同一個,類似用上堂教過的知識來分析poem/firm script/novel

我覺得個GEok,prof好nice,本人year one bba,英文dse Lv.4 writing 得Lv.3 對於我來講對個grade 都幾滿意(因為我英文真心差),理解能力好同對語言學有興趣的同學可以試一試。
