超輕鬆就A+ workload勁低
EXAM 既concept都唔難 有背note就輕鬆搞掂
話爛grade既人 問心有冇努力過? 唔好諗住GE course就hea過
我本身讀business都A+

B

2個Quiz 每個20%
Group Project 佔60%

1st Quiz 4題長題目
要深入理解全部concept同解釋個原理
超難 小弟全班最低
2nd Quiz 都係長題目
跟notes直出 背晒分notes就答到全部問題
PJ 要自己諗題目 無任何限制只需應用到相關概念
Report + Present + Q&A
Q&A得professor問問題 組組答完佢都洒手擰頭

professor係nice有問必答
但耐性就比較差 佢上堂講完預你明但你再問番佢佢會好勞氣再講多次
堂堂都早放因為佢預你唔識就即堂問

C+囉咩事? 根本個教授教得唔好又唔清楚. 每次上堂都係照powerpoint讀. 問D TA 問題,佢哋又唔識答. Project想做得好啲,想consult professor 叫佢畀啲意見,又唔肯覆我哋. JEEP! 教又教得唔好但個grade又爛. 邊個想讀呢科, 我真係恭喜你呀!

It is out of every possible expectation that I got a B in this course. With regards to the comments left by those who have studied this course before, it seems that this course awards students with generous grades. BUT IT IS NOT.

The workload is tbf light. No class attendance, except tutorials, is needed. For tutorials, you basically only need to be there and sign ur name and done. For the lectures, they are not really helpful either, so you can basically skip the whole course and just attend the tests, presentation and lab visits, etc.

However, the tests were highly eccentric. Take the first test as an example, MCs were adopted as a means of assessment. However, Pun [the course leader] promised that there would be 45 minutes of exam time. But, he stopped us after 30 minutes had passed. It was highly unfair and no one objected. Even though, most of us could finish the test wfin 30 mins, it was not a valid justification for cutting our test time.

For the 2nd test, long questions were adopted for means of assessment. I remember it was a 2 in 4 choice, you can choose any 2 Q.s out of 4 Q.s to answer. It was not merely asking for definition of concepts, as suggested by previous comments, but some concepts, for example, chromatic dispersion, which was NOT EXPLAINED clearly by Pun AT ALL, or the advantages and disadvantages of optical fibres [Pun only gave us pictures in the concerned slides, without detailed points given for us to ans such Q.s]. The tests were traps.

As to the final report occupying allegedly 60% of the total course marks, I firmly believe that our project at least worth a B+ or an A-, as one of my gpmate got a final grade of A-, and another one got a B+. But then, it seems that as contrary to the course manual, it seems that the tests instead of the project is the decisive factor. When the project is at least a B+/A-, how could I get a B only? Especially, one of my gpmates got a C+. If the project really weighs 60%, this should not happen.

When I informally ask Pun to review my grades, he gave an extremely irresponsible response that all grades must be correct, as the staff should have reviewed the marks before entering them and generate the final grade. He did not even bother to give us the marks distribution even when enquiries are raised. The transparency is low and the course leader's ability and attitude are simply doubtful.

In addition, I would like to mention that after me, acting on behalf of our group, sending the project to Pun, who immediately acknowledged the acceptance of our project, sent an email to my gpmates 2 weeks afterwards alleging that they hadnt submitted the group project report. This is simply a powerful illustration of how highly incompetent Pun is and how much vigilance should one take before enrolling into this course.

兩次quiz, 第一個係20條mc,正常都應該啱18-19條, 好簡單, 第二個係lq, 分高下. 個presentation不太差就ok, report就6個人寫800字.

課程編碼:GE1342-C01
CRN編碼:16702
地點:AMEN LT401
時間:12:00-14:50(約3小時)
課程長達12個禮拜,不計出席率(Quiz, Laboratory Visit以及Tutorial除外)
整靚自己成績表既一個好科,忙人一大之選

計分範疇有:
20% Week 7 Quiz 1(約15分鐘,選擇題)
20% Week 10 Quiz 2(約30分鐘,長問題)
30% Week 11/12 Presentation(約10分鐘)
30% Week 13 Final Report(約800字)

【Quiz 1】:
佔20分,約15分鐘,20條多項選擇題,涵蓋Chapter 1至6,只要擁有基本的Wave概念就可以完全上手
【Quiz 2】:
佔20分,約30分鐘,題目4選2,字數不限,涵蓋Chapter 6至9,需要溫習筆記所有內容,但題目仍屬簡單
【Presentation】:
在Week 5或之前組成總共不多於6人的小組,沒有分組則隨機分配。分組後每組隨機獲派1條題目,可轉其他所指定題目(共7條)或者自擬題目(必須與本課程有關),參考Canvas列出的探討範疇來完成簡報,並在指定日期在課堂上向同學匯報
每組有大約10分鐘的時間,自由發揮(本次有組別自擬題目,還在匯報期間展示並運行自製實驗裝置,十分佩服)
由於匯報完結後有問答環節,建議2個人主持匯報,太多人反而會造成混亂
由於課堂地點的電腦並沒有任何互聯網存取(被電腦管理員以群組原則鎖定了,即使使用手機的USB共享裝置也無法連上網絡),請務必把簡報儲存在移動裝置(如USB)並在匯報當日帶到課堂,還請列印一份簡報紙本給教授,方便教授批改
【Final Report】:
〘特事特辦〙由於課程名額爆滿,為了減輕教授工作量,Final Report由每人交一份改為每組交一份,字數大約800字,整份報告不能多於2版A4紙(正常列印,沒有分頁) ,內容就是Presentation時簡報的完整版資料

〔Laboratory Visit及Tutorial〕
地點為P1610,全部同學會分成不同組別(與Presentation的組別完全無關),由不同的導師示範4個實驗,計出席率,Visit完後要去指定課堂地點上Tutorial,導師不會講書,有問題不懂可以發問,沒有問題簽完名就可以離開,唔同組別有唔同時間表和地點,請參閱Canvas內相關文件

2 quiz
1 project only.
workload極低

上堂輕鬆有趣
QUIZ 5條lq 沒有MC
小難 不過有上堂有溫就冇問題
pj被carry 上網搵完資料 自己理解打返落report ok

ps: quiz唔太識 預B range 點知A左 多謝chow yuk tak bb

想輕鬆靚grade in ge1342 i trust!

A+

The lecturer is very helpful.
If you understand the concepts taught in lectures, you can get high marks in quizzes.
He can recognise who came to the lecture.
The presentation need to be interesting or something very hard to understand.
Good groupmates are also important.

40% Quiz + 60% Project
2 quizzes:一份quiz大概5條LQ, 有問definition 同 principles, 問得幾仔細下,但完全唔駛計數,上堂聽書有幫助,改得幾鬆手下,因為我有條10-15分漏空唔識答,做好啲可能有A+啩

Project:
Presentation(10 mins present + 10 mins Q&A) + Report (at least 1200 words, max. 1500 words)
佢有題目比你參考,任何關於optics嘅嘢都做得,present完佢會問問題,回答嘅組員有分加;唔難做

Attendance: 唔take attendance 但佢上堂會講下quiz嘅嘢,所以佢都好鼓勵人上堂;上堂要靜,否則佢會點你相

內容:主要教光嘅特性,如reflection, refraction, dispersion, diffraction, rainbow formation, polarized rainbow,都會講下 laser, LED, blue-ray;深啲嘅嘢佢會講但唔考,例如energy level, quantum mechanics, just for your reference

Dr. Chow:好好人,有問必答,有心教,會預備好多實驗講解,試過夜晚十點send email去,佢唔駛五分鐘覆返我;上堂唔明你可以問Dr. Chow問到識為止

駛唔駛Physics 底:有會易啲上手,但冇我都覺得唔緊要,Dr. Chow講冇上堂嘅話,本科人都未必識做份quiz,所以比起phy 底,留心上堂較重要

總結:輕鬆,成日早放,冇乜壓力,當係phy/optics 入門課

1 individual report + 1 group present + 2 tests
- Easy test (No phy bkgd can handle)
- Report around 800 words, so easy to do that
- low workload, good grade

2015/16 Sem B

A-

2 tests+ 1 presentation+ 1 term paper.
Marks would be added if you have active participation, e.g. giving comments and asking questions of other's presentation.

2015/16 Sem B

A

The course carries low workload to students as it is only comprised of 2 short quizzes, 1 presentation and 1 individual report of which 800 words are required. In my opinion the quizzes impacts the final grade insignificantly. Only the final report and presentation matter much. Students with strong physics background are highly recommended to take this course as the course is mainly about the physical properties of light waves and optical fibre. All classes but the first class are skippable.

2015/16 Sem B

A

Skipped all the lessons and prepared for the quiz 1-2 days before.
There were 2 quizzes only (MC and long question respectively, which were very simple for those who studied Physics before) as well as the group presentation (~10mins) and report (no more than 2 pages).
Professor is very nice and friendly.
Highly recommend to take this course if you aims good grade!

2015/16 Sem B

A-

The report could be a bit tricky. The quiz are not hard to handle.
Professor Pun is friendly.
The concepts mentioned in class should be easy for those who have studied physics before or currently studying engineering or physics related major.
I am a student from Class and it is not too hard to handle.

2015/16 Sem B

A-

The course covers the important knowledge of Wave and Particle, which is the fundamental curriculum of HKDSE Physics. It also covers some concepts about chemistry or computer science such as optical fiber. If you have taken Physics as the Elective in HKDSE, this course would be a piece of cake for u, vice versa.

As for me, as I have taken Physics in HKDSE and I am currently an Engineering student. Even though I spent just a small amount of effort (e.g. skipped most of the lessons, prepared the two quizs just 1-2 days before) on this course, I still acquire a good grade.

I strongly recommend those students with strong Physics and Engineering background to take this amazing course. You will find it lots of fun! :D

輕鬆GE, 唔take attendance, 但上堂的話要靜, 唔可以食野!

1.兩個quiz (30%)
-有溫書就非常易 (完全唔洗計數, just definition )
-上堂佢會mark低重點
-第一個quiz有讀過PHY 基本上係唔洗點溫
-第二個quiz要背多少少 definition
Quiz完全冇難度

2.Project (70%)
-Report(1200-1500字)
-Present (interesting, 但我個組其實係冇好似人地咁又做實驗又播片).
-report google 下principle 整理下就得,
-4-6個人一組,pre 15min 好輕鬆!!!!!!
