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

A

overall 90% A range
如果你數學好就輕鬆,數學吾好又吾努力千萬不要reg
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
至於點解有人做左problem set吾識do,甘就真係理解數學能力吾好啦...

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。
打呢篇野希望幫倒大家

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

工作量一般到繁重 睇你數底
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
好多地方/step都飛 但有數底嘅同學應該冇問題
我都係返屋企上youtube or google
對於我黎講都幾吃力....

final 其實佢都係出problem sets 同mid term 類似題目
只有一條特別難
如果你明晒problem sets 點做 相信你都會識做
**你識做條數 唔代表你明**

因為自己冇數底 所以比其他人努力多啲
雖然學都好多野 同拎到呢個成績好滿足
但冇數底嘅人唔好reg呢科haha

-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。

仲有坦白講,每次上堂講解,好多人都唔明,氣氛更加令半班學生訓著/做其他野,每次放break都好多人走堂,雖然小弟都堅持到落堂,盡力聽書,但可惜都強差人意。

希望其他有興趣想reg呢科既同學三思,呢科ge係會拉低你gpa既科目,我core過三都冇用,cgpa都一樣gg,唔好比下面一堆好評/打手既評價影響。

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.

Midterm
Final
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

2017/18 Sem B

A+

1 quiz
1 exam
4 asg
1 bonus

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)

2017/18 Sem B

A+

upper limit 25% A range
to get A range
You do not need to work very hard
but should have a understanding of math
bonus要做 3%可救命
幾幸運得a+
Dr Lo 好nice

2017/18 Sem B

A-

Quiz 30%
Assigments 20%
Exam 50%

成個sem得四份assignment (各25%)
全部都係上堂比assignment,有時要即堂交
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
問題較大既係exam
同quiz 既難度差好遠
所以冇數底既人reg 之前請三思

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
所以唔得閒同對個grade 有信心就唔駛理

總結係個好ge
課堂內容輕鬆有趣
Prof 超好人
但因為exam 同拉curve 冇數底既人就唔建議reg 啦

2017/18 Sem A

prof真好人 每天都在秀女兒
講明因為dep要求 這堂會越來越難
沒拿a range怪我自己final quiz不夠用心溫書

下個sem講明有exam同埋會深番好多(呢個sem面對眾怒cut左syllabus),建議大家咪中伏
特別係數底唔好就會好似我咁好勤力先得A-

Prof 勁好人

Professor is nice and funny.
Over 30% of students get A range, but I think the math is not easy; however, there will be a sample paper for you to practise.

He said next semester (or next year?) will 拉curve.

2016/17 Sem B

B+

雖然成績唔太好, 但依個真係一個好GE
主要有一個QUIZ(30%) Class Attendance(30%) Group Project(40%)
1. Quiz 之前會比上年既QUIZ你睇 基本上差唔多, 同埋唔太難
2. 每堂都會有份Class work 問番個堂既野(有時冇) 番齊就冇問題
3.Group Project 比分好鬆手, Mean 係35/40分

要拎到A range 要 90分以上, 但其實好多人都拎到,好似有3-4成人

課堂內容唔算深, 有D內容係中學CORE數(Probi個D)
出GRADE好快, week 13尾已經有(定唔知14)
PROF算係有問必答, 回EMAIL好快 同埋我覺得幾有心

整體而言, 係一個好GRADE + HEA 既GE

2016/17 Sem B

A+

拿普通话写啦,可能要对不起international了、、、
个人还是推荐这门GE的,用到的数学知识比较基础,是不是数学系的来都无所谓了。
给分看1.in class assignment 2.quiz 3.pre3
in class assignment主要是签到,只要去上课了基本上都可以满分的。
quiz没有他们说的那么简单了,想做满分得把课件上的所有东西都弄明白啊,还有,sample question一定要好好做(一百个重点号)。professor人不错的,很有耐心要勤问他问题。
pre3自然是核心,多跟professor沟通一下(虽然他总是很敷衍给不出什么建设性意见咳咳),但还是要多刷刷脸啦。 pre3没太弄好也没关系report还有机会,好好写report还是有机会A level的。
总之professor人还是很不错的,给分也挺良心的,我当时pre3就搞得不太好,但report好好写也没影响到grade了。GE课看态度更多一些只要认真都是可以搞到好成绩的。
多跟professor沟通,认真学就ok。还有组队!!很重要!!!!!

2016/17 Sem A

B+

上齊堂30%

做好sample paper 去考quiz 30%
(講真D數唔算好易,勝在有sample,溫晒都有8,9成)

Project 要好隊友, 小弟就係比隊友troll 9左
最後8X% B+
份project 差唔多最低分咁濟,因為有位好組員照wiki copy 仲要present果陣唔識讀

正正常常都應該會有A-
