建議對physics 有興趣先好讀,冇興趣會好辛苦。
3個 test, 1project(report 2000 words+presentation+Q&A), 1Exam.
test 同 exam 要explain物理現象,英文表達能力要求高,而且concept要清,仲要畫diagram.
test評分標準比Exam輕手,好多人full mark,所以一分也不能少。
Project要搵好隊友以降低workload, presentation要準備好。
Exam好手緊,而且問題好刁鑽,要溫所有notes+lessons.

summer讀,堅係忙到癲。
week3/4/5 quiz,不斷刨notes係唔夠仲要認真上堂,每分每秒都唔可以聽漏,因為題目就係出佢講嘅野多。
week5 交Project(PPT+2000words writing ),如果你臨交一個星期之前先做chur死你。Q&A問得好深入,要認真搵清楚所有資料,每一個角每一副圖。
week6/7 present 冇堂上。20分鐘present,只要準備好200%present內容就夠。

癲到可以2堂教3個chapters。唯一有趣就係做實驗

理科人,認真刨曬所有notes,溫過曬所有videos,結果B+。

I am from College of business, winner of International Olympics of Physics and I got the A-, don't know what is teacher's grading standard.

有powerpoint講埋肥左好似差唔多2成人 cs,總之大伏,f左summer 再retake , workload我諗係普通enginee major course 既 6-7成同埋final應該好手緊

This course has a quite heavy workload. Yet, for those who have interest in science, this is quite a good course to take. I study English but keen on science. I managed to get A range at the end. Worth it!

其實係Summer Sem讀
但揀唔到呢個option
2-3 Quiz
1 Final Test
1 Lab Report
1 Final Project (5 people in one group)
想講自問寫曬筆記已經好努力溫書 自己有興趣讀 Final都儘量寫
Concept都清晰 從小對Physics有興趣 有自己學習過
無俾到功課分我地睇 透明度有啲低 唔知道點解佢會fail自己
Tutor好好可以任問 但係我有試過quiz完 想問佢攞marking scheme溫書
佢答我 上堂都教過曬 所以無marking 咁我話想攞翻份卷佢又話唔得
因為佢出題目啲分好模糊 2分又有 30分一題又有 但係佢無指示話要寫幾多
基本上都係一張白紙 橫線都無 (我已經畫埋圖解釋,盡左力)
個人覺得有無Physics底都唔重要 就算你識曬都好 作答上都有一定嘅模糊同埋困難 建議唔好reg 如果唔怕嘅同學仔都可以試下reg伏下hehe

我系2018/19summer
上堂規則比較多,唔可以食野同飲野
唔比傾計,佢見你傾計會停系度望住你,然後就會行過黎問你咩名同SID No.
佢上堂講野好lur而且好悶,真系有興趣先好讀
無phy底的同學上堂落足心機上應該都handle到。
Presentation 要求不太高
有Lab visit一定要去,會take attendence, 基本上就系介紹一下EE lab然後寫lab report 。
唔好以為無attendence分就好爽,要靚grade肯定系上堂要聽書然後不停jot notes, 好鐘意考上堂講嘅野而且notes無,真系分心一秒都唔惦

至於點解我F我都唔清楚
Ps. 無讀phy,專心上堂,無走過堂

The workload is much heavier than it used to be starting from this semester. 1.The content of the course it self is quite interesting and useful, and the instructor had done experiments in the lecture every time.
2.There are quiz over the semester. They are not difficult, but however is kind of stupid in my opinion when your score is in fact the number of keywords you have written.
3.Do pay attention to what they've said during the lab visit since no one has a clue what those machines are for and you are required to produce a mutli-page report with zero knowledge.
4.The presentation was going in the way that I am not expecting. Essentially, the more words you put in your keynote, the higher mark you will get. Professor does not appreciate graphs and pictures as he thinks that is a act of laziness. Put paragraphs in your keynote and be prepared for fundamental questions then you'll nail the final project and presentation.

I personally believe I didn't put more than 3 days of work for the whole semester on this course, as I studied the majority of the content in high school and thus saved me a lot of study time. However, if one hasn't studied the content ,it's still very easy and If I had put a little bit more effort getting an A or A+ shouldn't be that hard.So recommend this course and try to put in abit of effort for a good grade.The group project and coursework matter a lot.

Reg之前聽聞靚grade加workload細,但佢由呢個sem開始就加左個exam同lab report
呢科workload都算大 有phy底會有著數
兩次in-class quiz,有mc, true false, 畫圖, long question,long question答到key point就得,自問冇咩溫過書,所以兩次都好似低過mean
Lab visit,會有一堂去ee個lab參觀,參觀完要寫份report,佢要我地寫兩、三版紙,但根本就no idea寫咩,所以都係亂寫
Presentation+Group report,4-6人一組,要同optics有關,group report一組作1500字,都輕鬆
Exam,全部long question,其實大部分題目同quiz一樣,但當時我冇溫過quiz...
自問quiz同exam都冇咩溫過書,如果溫得熟我相信grade會靚好多
呢個course教既係基本既phy,個prof都肯俾consult,未phy底或者phy底差既要自己衡量

workload好大...

Quiz 有兩個但係上堂呀sir又lur又講得快跟本跟唔到

Lab同present又辛苦又多野做...已經無freerider同埋比prof consult左幾次但係都唔高分.. exam一條都唔明..好辛苦

今年改制加咗Exam同lab visit 所以應該冇以前workload禁低

1.Quiz (兩個) Quiz1: 61/81 Quiz2: 65/90
考ppt嘅concept 有理科底嘅應該好易明 冇嘅話上堂專心聽應該都可以明 啊sir解釋得幾清楚 聽唔切/有問題問佢都會幫手
Quiz三四版紙 頭兩版都係考重點concept嘅填充 MC TF 畫圖 後兩版就係長題目 有啲題目可以俾你畫圖說明 所以唔太考grammar 其實都係答到重點字眼就會俾分 就算攞唔哂長題目啲分 有溫書嘅話前兩版都好易執 Quiz嘅分數會email俾你

2.Lab Visit
因為係第一次加嘅活動 唔知下年會唔會再改
大概喺sem中/尾 喺上堂最後一個鐘去參觀Lab 有attendance
建議印好佢俾嘅lab visit ppt 到時去邊聽邊抄低prof講嘅嘢
用嚟之後要寫lab report
我地係第一年寫 所以都冇sample參考 我就單純intro maintext conclusion 中間加啲我自己喺Lab影嘅圖 啊sir就叫我地去google ppt入面啲關鍵字 加埋visit抄啲資料就應該寫到唔少嘢 我好似4 5版左右

3.Presentation
喺佢比嘅題目/自己簡有關嘅題目做Present 我嗰組其實都算幾hea 講下concept,functions, how it works (見到其他組都瘋狂擺啲個ppt全部都係字) 佢會問你問題 睇你究竟明唔明個concept 所以最好真係理解下你present緊咩 唔好直抄直讀
Present完後要交份Group report 其實都係將你present嘅稿打番成作文咁 1500字 4/5人分 其實workload都唔算重

4.Exam
全部長題目 頭兩題係送分題 有溫書就識 後幾題就難啲 我做嗰陣都好冇自信 都最後都A到 所以應該唔洗擔心

總括而言 算係唔錯嘅GE 上堂冇attendance 但係其實Prof.講得好有趣 好多實驗同示範睇 只要唔好食嘢騷擾佢上堂就得 有理科底會易讀啲 冇嘅話認真聽書睇ptt應該都冇問題 Prof.都話好多商科人攞A (利申科工女) 但真係因人而異 我都識得啲商科人睇唔明啲concept 希望幫到你地

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+

2016/17 Sem B

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

MID TERM難,同之前唔同晒,變左幾條LONG QUESTION,PRESENTATION正正常常
利申MID TERM唔低分,PROJECT正正常常,出到黎得B
