唔多嘢做，但係啲topic幾難。有counting, biology, cryptography。仲有啲game theory同set theory。
當初因為冇grp project reg呢科
workload又細 得4份asm+midterm+exam 每份asm得3題 大約1個鐘就完成 有上堂一定識做 佢會俾hints
Jon Lo好好人 有咩唔識問佢都覆得好快又詳細
不過冇數底嘅人上堂真係要好留心同要勤力溫書 我係zoom上 好多時都有唔明要重睇recording 同埋真係做咗好多次佢俾嘅problem set做到熟曬先有呢個grade
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.
依科無數底/sense既唔好亂reg，我des lv 5，但唔係數學major
有counting, biology, game theory
So freaking hard. Though i got A+ for MA1200 and A for MA1201, it's still hard to manage the concepts in the assignments, given I practiced all problem sets.
無grp project 無tutorial
Jon好好人 上堂輕鬆 完全唔覺得有壓力
asm4份全部送分,佢第一堂會比你睇上個sem啲人嘅grade,大部份都坐底B+,我冇做佢啲problem set 但有睇,點都一定要睇因為佢Mid term final啲題目十成九都一樣就係改左個數字
overall 90% A range
mid-term（30%）老老實實做曬problem set+理解到 90%不是問題
4個asm（20%） 容易get full mark 同埋好快做完
exam total 10題（50%），2-3題較tricky，其他問題做曬problem set係識答既
基本上你理解到，吾需要浪費太多時間溫習，輕鬆A range la
The course's workload is not heavy (but please read my further comment). There are no group projects, and for all 4 assignments, you can do it within 1 hour, the latest, for each, as long as you are familiar with the topic.
However, this semester, the grading is quite competitive. In order to get A- or above, you should get your exam 87 or above, while for the exam, it would normally take you 110 out of the available 120 minutes.
On the other hand, the instructor is excellent in terms of speaking and giving bonus points. He once told that his English is not so good, but it's understandable. Then, he provides 2 chances for bonus points:
1. Code-cracking, only for the fastest student, +3 added to final mark.
2. Bonus project (5-7 min video), open for all students, from +0 to +3 added to final mark.
The instructor is also willing to help on students' difficulty. He also provides students chances to recheck their mid-term and final exam so that you may know where are your mistakes.
At last, this course won't give you much pressure throughout the teaching period. However, I guess that if you want to get an A+, try to have an average of 96 or above, so get ready to do the assignments, bonus project, and compete during the mid-term and final if you want to get a high mark.
Sorry for non local student, my English is suck so I type Chinese.
Dse Math Level 3
被fd 介紹讀呢科，冇掂數好耐，都驚handle唔倒。好在tutor俾夠problem set，
數學問題都幾straight forward，mid term fianl 問題好類似，只要有心，又唔洗讀到狗甘。做曬TUTOR 提供的problem set. 我估想個grade唔B above 都好難
調轉甘問,冇心讀咩ge course 都唔岩你讀。
I'm that English comment you're looking for.
I stuck with this course because of the comments that it was very light, A+ and all that good stuff. BUT this was the first time the course had EXAMINATION with NO GROUP PROJECT, so take this in your own discretion.
Course and Lecturer in themselves are interesting where I admittedly messed up in Midterms and Finals to get this grade. Alas, Prof. Jon is very approachable and forgiving where you can look at the exams and he will give you a bonus video and one other bonus to do which can pull your grade up. Assignments are not the easiest to do but they are doable nonetheless.
Overall, I liked this course for what it was and could have put more effort into it. Don't let my review stop you if you really like the course
冇掂數3年 當初諗住好似幾好grade 又岩時間先reg
上堂好迫白講我一啲都唔明 因為佢唔係從一個beginner 嘅角度去解釋
我都係返屋企上youtube or google
final 其實佢都係出problem sets 同mid term 類似題目
如果你明晒problem sets 點做 相信你都會識做
-4份 5% assignments (20%) : 有一半ans可以容易地係notes/exercise 搵到類似既題目搵番
- Midterm (30%): 考 ch.1&2，老實講我盡左我能力去溫熟同埋狂做exercise,結果都炒左
- Final (50%): 考哂5課，溫哂，但份卷難到pk，結果都炒埋
我呢科計左得45分/100分左右，當初見呢度個個話靚grade，有數底就可以reg黎讀，小弟見ch1學番permutations and combinations呢科中學野，同埋dse數學都有5,所以冇drop到，但到ch2之後就心知瀨左野，就算你跟住佢講解，你都唔會明白個原因同埋d符號代表乜。
Before this course, I have no maths background and only scored level 3 in hkdse. However, I found this course very easy and the only thing you need is to work hard in order to get an A range.
Highly recommend this course.
A few in class assignments, but you have a day to work on them and submit online. They are easy.
Very nice (and nerdy) professor. He clearly loves math and is very smart. He also is really into movies. I really liked his course.
I worked hard in this course, so I was a bit dissappointed with my final result. But I still recomend it :P
Didnt do the bonus proj, asg not full mark. But overall 95% for the course = A+
Super easy course, u can choose not to attend lectures if u master those concepts well (doesnt mean you do the problem set correctly but real understand why and what)
just need to spent few hours to read the notes and problem sets on the day of exam (not math major background anyway)
upper limit 25% A range
to get A range
You do not need to work very hard
but should have a understanding of math
Dr Lo 好nice
所以雖然唔take attendence 但唔建議走堂（同埋你唔會知佢幾時比）
每一課都會有problem set 比你做
Quiz 基本上有溫書有做problem set 就冇問題
有project （individual） 但唔係一定要做
好似係拍一條 3-5 mins 既片
計成個course bonus 3%
week 11 定 12 先同你講detail
但因為exam 同拉curve 冇數底既人就唔建議reg 啦
