Title: Rank your favourite units from uni!
Post by: Joseph41 on October 20, 2017, 11:55:58 am
We did this in the Monash thread a couple of years ago, but I thought it'd be pretty interesting for current and prospective students!

Basically, the idea is just to list all of the units you've completed at uni in order from favourite to least favourite. You can provide justification or a quick summary of each if you like! :D

Admittedly some can be hard to rank, but I'll start us off:

- ATS4230 Arts Honours Thesis (2016)
- ATS3673 History and Sociolinguistics of English (2015)
- ATS3681 Structure of English (2014)
- AMU1311 Sex, Gender and Knowledge (2015)
- ATS1338 The Language Game: Why Do We Talk the Way We Do? (2013)
- ATS2683 The Analysis of Discourse: Texts, Narrative and Society (2015)
- ATS3679 Psycholinguistics and Child Language Acquisition (2014)
- ATS2676 Sociolinguistics (2014)
- ATS3872 Topics in Indian Philosophy (2014)
- ATS2667 Language Across Time (2014)
- ATS1371 Life, Death and Morality (Introduction to Philosophy A) (2014)
- ATS4137 Special Reading Unit 1 (Honours) (2016)
- ATS4653 Honours Workshop (2016)
- ATS2637 The Human Body and the International Marketplace (2014)
- ATS1339 Describing and Analysing Language and Communication (2013)
- ATS3627 Global Cultures, Local Traditions: Creating and Consuming (Popular) Culture (2015)
- ATS3639 Poverty, Ecology, and International Justice (2014)
- ATS2640 The Ethics of Global Conflict (2015)
- AMU2906 Genders, Sexualities and Religions in Southeast Asia (2015)
- ATS1325 Contemporary Worlds 1 (2013)
- ATS1326 Contemporary Worlds 2 (2013)
- ATS1315 Human Rights Theory 2 (2013)
- AMU2450 Contemporary Media Theory (2015)
- ATS1314 Human Rights Theory 1 (2013)

I knew you'd comment on that. 😂

Nah, still enjoyed it - the only units I genuinely didn't enjoy were PSY1011 and PSY1022. I just preferred the Linguistics units slightly more. ;)

Hold on to your hats people, because this is an incredibly long list:

1. PTY1011 - Physiotherapy 1
Whilst there are aspects of PTY1022 that I preferred (i.e. physiology), I enjoyed the lower limb more than upper limb, and found it easier. The two units were also taught slightly differently to each other and I think I preferred a lot of the way that 1011 was delivered compared to 1022.

2. PTY1022 - Physiotherapy 2
Title: Re: Rank your favourite units from uni!

25602   Ethics in Finance
24108   Marketing Foundations
21129   Managing People and Organisations
26134   Business Statistics

(Mix and match the rest of my other technical units)

I got roasted* earlier tonight for saying that my least favourite units were what they were, but here's my list:

PSC1042: Multi-Disciplinary Pharmaceutical Science. Whipped cream and food. Enough said.
PSC1012: Physiology I
PSC1031: Physical Chemistry I
PSC1041: Scientific Inquiry
PSC1032: Physical Chemistry II
PSC1012: Physiology II
PSC1021: Bioorganic and Medicinal Chemistry I
PSC1022: Bioorganic and Medicinal Chemistry II. I really didn't like this unit, and it was more of a mess than I was this semester haha :P

*I chose to go along to a UoM trivia night, and bumped into zsteve and I mentioned that I hated organic chemistry, he nearly freaked q:

I'll update this thread peridocially, when I complete more course in my 4 year program. Also for every year you go up, the courses become more and more of a shitshow.... hmmm

GEOM2083: Applied Geospatial Techniques. I made many mistakes, but still enjoyed learning about how important Surveying, GIS and Cartography is to creating a project.
GEOM2077: Cartography 1. If you know me well enough, this is a given
GEOM1033: Spatial Information Science Fundamentals
GEOM2088: Surveying 1
GEOM1022: Physical Geography
MATH2211: Mathematics for Scientists
PHYS1080: Introduction to Physical Modelling. Course had its issues, but I can give it some credit for the learning aspect. 
ONPS2338: Scientific Communication. sigh... I also do a version 2.0 of this in 4th year called Professional Practice. sigh..

Goodness. I have two degrees so this will be interesting:

Highest in list = loved, lowest in list = not-so-loved (clean version.. it's for the best)

IT degree from La Trobe (search codes):
- CSE1OOF Object Oriented Programming Fundamentals - my highest score ever (95). has a special place in my heart
- CSE3OAD Object Oriented Application Development - did this 3rd year sub as a 2nd year with MJRomeo81
- CSE1PE Programming Environment - ended up tutoring this, my first real programming unit at uni
- STA1DCT Data based Critical Thinking - grouse lecturer, changed my attitude towards mathstats completely
- CSE3BDC Big data management on the cloud
- CSE4DMI Data mining - did this as an undergrad for a challenge
- CSE1IOO Intermediate object oriented programming
- STA2ABS Applied biostatistics - something different, mix-and-match programming/stats in R
- CSE2DBF Database fundamentals
- CSE2ALG Algorithms and data structures
- MAT1DM Discrete mathematics
- STA3BS Biostatistics
- CSE2NEF Network engineering
- CSE1ITF Info Tech Fundamentals

- CSE3MQR Metrics quality and reliability
- BUS1AFB Accounting and finance - poorly organised back when I did it
- MGT1FOM Foundations of management - same as above
- CSE2ISD Info Systems Development - zzzz

Master of Teaching from Monash (search codes):
- EDF5941/5942/5943/5944 Placements A-D (4 x 15 days = 60 overall). by far the most valuable + rewarding part
- EDF5145/5146: ICT Education Secondary - loved the IT method units. Mike & Michael are great
- EDF5810 VCAL and VET (Applied Learning) masters level double-credit - learnt a ton of valuable stuff here
- EDF5016 Inclusive teaching - special and inclusive ed. rewarding
- EDF5161/5162 Maths Education Secondary
- EDF5017 Numeracy
- EDF5019 Teacher as leader
- EDF5018 Curriculum assessment and reporting
- EDF5041 Engaging adolescent learners
- EDF4120 Learning at heart of teaching
- EDF4121 Teaching the power to change
- EDF5040 Navigating youth transitions: Learning, work, and identity
- EDF4122 Teaching partnerships - didn't like this unit one bit personally
- EDF4123 Literacy across the years - yeah. not my cup of tea

Jeez, that was hard work. I sat here for a good 15 mins debating the order

Post by: Floatzel98 on October 31, 2017, 10:44:22 pm
I'll take a shot **procrastinating**. Never really stepped back and looked at the units I've liked, surprisingly.


PHS2350 - Introductory Physics Research Project - This unit has definitely been the best I've taken so far. It was hard and you sink a lot of time into it, but it was fun and worth it.
MTH3020 - Complex Analysis - Probably the most fun and interesting kind of math I've come across so far
MTH3060 - Advanced Ordinary Differential Equations
PHS2061 - Quantum and Thermal Physics
MTH1030 - Techniques for Modelling - cos burkard
MTH2030 - Differential Equations with Modelling
PHS2062 - Electromagnetism and Optics - you finally start skimming the surface of some really cool physics, and you actually use some real math.
PHS2081 - Atomic, Nuclear and Condensed Matter Physics
ASP2011 - Astronomy
MTH2121 - Algebra and Number Theory
MTH2010 - Multivariable Calculus - Really dry but easy
MTH2021 - Linear Algebra with Applications - Really dry but hard
PHS1022 - Fields and Quantum Physics
PHS1011 - Classical Physics and Relativity - first year physics is trash
FIT1045 - Introduction to Algorithms and Programming
SCI2015 - Scientific practice and communication (advanced)  ........

Turns out that so far I have enjoyed the math I've done more than the physics.

Post by: Sine on December 01, 2017, 04:54:10 pm
1. BMS1062 - Molecular Biology: Content is relatively boring but the unit is extremely well run with great staff.
2. BMS1011 - Biomedical Chemistry: Content is light so can be boring but again a well run unit.
3.BMS1052 - Human Neurobiology: Unit with the most potential in terms of content but the overload of content meant you couldn't really "enjoy" it.
4. BMS1021 - Cells, Tissues and Organisms: Nice unit if you did VCE biology a lot of topics but heaps of connections..
5. CHM1011 - Chemistry I: Well run unit and very light.
6. MTH2010 - Multivariable Calculus: Didn't go/watch to lectures (heard they were horrible) but tutorials/my tutor were great.
7. BMS1042 - Public Health and Preventitive Medicine: Two parts epidemiology and statistics. Epi was pretty interesting and towards the end of the semester I really enjoyed it but statistics was pretty useless.
8. MTH1030 - Techniques for modelling: Relatively low on my list since I didn't go/watch to lectures (burkard probably would've increased my enjoyment)
9. CHM1022 - Chemistry II: Can't say much since I did this in the 2nd half of year 12 and kinda bludged it.
10. BMS1031 - Medical Biophysics: Very disjointed unit and badly run praticals.

What's the go with the six different units?
Because USyd changed their curriculums this year, all Bachelor of Arts, Science and Commerce students have to take 12 units of OLE (open learning environment) units during the course. There are 0cp, 2cp and 6cp units, and I chose to take 3 2cp units this semester instead of a 2nd elective.

PSC1042: Multi-Disciplinary Pharmaceutical Science.
PSC2041: Biopharmaceutics
PSC1012: Physiology I
PSC1031: Physical Chemistry I
PSC2011: Biochemical pharmacology
PSC1041: Scientific Inquiry

Organic is truly the devil and I just really hate this sem's unit, more than anything else in the world ^_^
(Note the trend- all three last ranked are organic :') )
Now:
Most favourite:
Literally every unit Monash offers bar PSC2232. (See below)
PSC2041: Biopharmaceutics (My opinion changed after a v nice exam aha)
PSC2142: Computational Chemistry (This unit makes me cry because of the labs, but it's also my first taste of stats/maths since PSC1041/year 12 and I just really enjoy this unit.) and PSC2222: Formulation Chemistry (It's tough, but I really love it. +1 for the Ruby couverture choc given to us by the UC because he's a chocaholic <3 ) (Tied)
PSC1042: Multi-Disciplinary Pharmaceutical Science
PSC1012: Physiology I
PSC1031: Physical Chemistry I
PSC2011: Biochemical pharmacology
PSC1041: Scientific Inquiry
PSC1032: Physical Chemistry II
PSC1012: Physiology II and PSC2031: Analytical Methods (tied)
PSC1021: Bioorganic and Medicinal Chemistry I
PSC2012: Molecular Pharmacology (Mainly because I dislike the sole UC/lecturer- he's a bit of an ass, to put it nicely)
PSC1022: Bioorganic and Medicinal Chemistry II
PSC2021: Structural Organic Chemistry
Hell
Second Hell
Third Hell
Finally: PSC2232- Colloid Chemistry.
You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. This unit had potential, but then I have no content whatsoever, the pracs are a shambles, and I have quizzes that are based on the content I don't even have. Therefore ???  (Not an organic unit, I promise aha :') )

MATH3871 Bayesian Inference and Computation (The stats in this course is just goals - it put MATH2901 to shame)
MATH3411 Information, Codes and Ciphers
MATH5505 Combinatorics (I still maintain that it was a mind fuck but it's still rather beautiful maths)
MATH3611 Higher Analysis (Made its way higher up because I see it get used in Bayesian, even if it's really barely used)
COMP1521 Computing Systems Fundamentals (There's a lot that I don't like about it still, but I've been REALLY pleasantly pleased with what I did like)
MATH2901 Higher Theory of Statistics
MATH1081 Discrete Mathematics
MATH2111 Higher Several Variable Calculus (I still maintain that the course was taught shit in my year but it's since improved and also the content has become far more relevant)
MATH2601 Higher Linear Algebra
MATH1151 Mathematics for AS&F 1A
MATH1251 Mathematics for AS&F 1B
COMP2521 Data Structures and Algorithms
ECON1101 Microeconomics 1 (I maintain that this was one of the best and easiest courses I've ever done but its relevance has dropped)
FINS1613 Business Finance
MATH2701 Abstract Algebra and Fundamental Analysis
MATH2621 Higher Complex Analysis (tbh very fun, but somewhat irrelevant to the stuff I'm currently doing)
MATH3701 Higher Topology and Differential Geometry (...it's really not taught well. It's just not in the shit category like MATH2111 used to be)
COMP1511 Introduction to Programming
ACCT1501 Accounting and Financial Management 1A
MATH2931 Higher Linear Models (I still suck at it and think it's very boring but it's gained some relevance)
ACTL1101 Introduction to Actuarial Studies
ACCT1511 Accounting and Financial Management 1B
ACTL2111 Financial Maths for Actuaries
SCIF1121 ...

Yeah, I was actually pretty happy with most of my courses this sem. Three made it pretty far up

Ordering the units I've done wasn't particularly easy; as I must admit I haven't really had strong feelings about the majority of them. However, with the way I'm feeling today, the order might look something like this:

MTH1030 - Techniques for modelling  (teaching was super engaging for this unit, thanks Burkard)
FIT1045 - Introduction to algorithms and python
MTH2010 - Multivariable calculus
FIT1008 - Intro to computer science
CHM1051 - Chemistry I (first year chemistry units have been a bit dry tbh)
CHM1052 - Chemistry II
SCI2015 - Scientific practice and communication (writing a 3000 word literature review will be the end of me I fear)


***daylight***



PHS1011 - Classical physics and relativity (this unit was run so poorly that I couldn't stomach doing another physics unit this semester)

Thought it be appropriate to list down ALL my first year units into one list now that I'm done with uni for the year!

* SCRN1027: Story 1 (Screenwriting) (love love love love my tutor for Story! The best tutor I've had at uni so far. The tasks are very engaging and challenging as well)
* SCRN1030: Character & Performance 1 (Directing) (I didn't like directing at first but my tutor for this subject was super engaging as well and was so nice. She drew me towards directing because she approached it from an actor's perspective which was interesting)
* SCRN1033: Short Form Production (I have learnt so much in this subject more than all my subjects combined honestly. The stress was worth it!)
* SCRN1028: Image 1 (Cinematography)
* SCRN1031: Rhythm & Juxtaposition 1 (Editing) (lowkey expected more in this subject honestly)
* SCRN1029: Visual Storytelling
* SCRN1026: Screen Business 1 (Producing)
* Screen Studies
* Seminars
* SCRN1032: Sound 1 (Sound) (I just couldn't engage with the subject at all because it got too technical with frequency waves and whatnot)

Monash University

1. BMS2031 - Body Systems
2. BMS2011 - Structure of the Human Body
3. BMS2042 - Human Genetics
4. BMS1062 - Molecular Biology
5. BMS1011 - Biomedical Chemistry
6. BMS1052 - Human Neurobiology
7. BMS1021 - Cells, Tissues and Organisms
8. CHM1011 - Chemistry I
9. MTH2010 - Multivariable Calculus
10. BMS2021 - Human Molecular Cell Biology
11. BMS2052 - Microbes in health and disease
12. BMS1042 - Public Health and Preventitive Medicine
13. MTH1030 - Techniques for modelling
14. CHM1022 - Chemistry II
15. BMS1031 - Medical Biophysics
16. BMS2062 - Introduction to bioinformatics

I probably should add that i've liked all my subjects so even the stuff towards the bottom have been good. As for the new additions, BMS2042 is one of the best untis i've done - really well run and lectures are really interesting. BMS2052 - I went in not really liking or being interested in microbiology from what I had done in first year but this subject changed my perspective and it became very valuable for me. BMS2062 is ranked last but will still a decent unit apart from the assessment having really bad weightings. For 10 out of the 12 weeks we needed to submit "practical reports" which was really just answering questions but they take a lot of time to do (especially if you are trying to perfect them) and only worth 1.8% each. Also those pracs where 3 hours for work we could've just done at home  :o. Just a lot of minor assessments which was pretty annoying.

This is a great idea, although it is difficult to do. Should be interesting for my own personal refection to update in the future though, especially if I decide to go through with doing a pretty different degree (Engineering) afterwards:

UniMelb BCom (Actuarial studies major for the first two years, now an economics major) + Physics 1 through CAP (Current subjects in bold):

COMP20005 - Engineering Computation (Got me super engaged, could literally sit there working on the assignments for hours + I learnt a very transferable and useful skill)
MAST10009 - Accelerated Mathematics 2 (Very rewarding experience)
ENGR10003 - Engineering Systems Design 2
PHYC10003 - Physics 1 (Not the most organised subject I've done, but enjoying it so far)
ECON20002 - Intermediate Microeconomics
ACTL10001 - Introduction to Actuarial Studies
FNCE10002 - Principles of Finance
ECOM30001 - Basic Econometrics
ACCT10002 - Introductory Financial Accounting
MAST10008 - Accelerated Mathematics 1
MAST20005 - Statistics
ECON20001 - Intermediate Macroeconomics
ECON30001 - International Trade Policy
ACCT10001 - Accounting Reports and Analysis
ECON10003 - Introductory Macroeconomics
ACTL20001 - Financial Mathematics I
ECON30005 - Money and Banking (Have had quite a few moments of regret about picking this over Maths Econ/ECON30020, too late now though....)
MGMT20001 - Organisational Behaviour (It wasn't that bad, I just liked most my other subjects more)
MAST20004 - Probability (Was an OK experience apart from the ridiculous exam)
ECON10004 - Introductory Microeconomics (Still salty over the exam, but looking back content seemed pretty dry too)
ACTL20002 - Financial Mathematics II (I completely lost interest, doubt I would have actually passed if it wasn't for the easier than usual final exam)

Glad this was bumped, remembered I initially held off posting until I was in my final year. Will probably post again next semester. Looks weird having a lot of my major units for Psychology sit near the bottom, but I think it's more reflective of most of my minor/elective units being way better rather than Psychology being bad.

ATS2866 - Symbolic logic (this unit is incredible, the new UC introduced a whole new course and it's soooo good)
ATS2173 - Korean intermediate 1
ATS1172 - Korean introductory 2
ATS1171 - Korean introductory 1
PSY3320 - Sleep and circadian rhythms (readings and exam were brutal but still up there as the best Psych unit honestly)
ATS2946 - Critical thinking: How to analyse arguments and improve your reasoning skills
ATS1835 - Time, self and mind
ATS1371 - Life, death and morality
ATS3089 - Social institutions and power in Asia
ATS1338 - The language game: Why do we talk the way we do? (old name)
PSY2071 - Developmental psychology
PSY2042 - Personality and social psychology
PSY3041 - Psychological testing, theories of ability and ethics
ATS2720 - Youth, culture and social change
(this will probably go up once the other assignments come around)
PSY1011 - Psychology 1A
PSY1022 - Psychology 1B
PSY3051 - Perception and cognitive psychology

^Nice one! Is ATS3089 a new unit? Looks like exactly the type of thing I would have studied, but I don't recognise it at all.

Looks like it was introduced in 2013, but when I took it last year it came under new management; weirdly, it isn't running this year. Shame, it was a pretty engaging unit for my first taste of that area of study and most people seemed to like it too.

Applied econometrics is top notch! Lecturer's not too lax with the theoretical content even though it's supposed to be "applied". Would highly recommend this to anyone considering research in the Faculty of Business and Economics.

This will be horrendous when I want to procrastinate by ranking all 38 (or 42 next sem) units I've done, which is why I totally haven't set a reminder to do this.

Indigenous perspectives: is important to know but the way it's taught is really boring. The lectures are from 6-8 on Monday nights and they repeat the same points sometimes each week. It's a 1st year course but it's also a high fail rate course (which they keep reminding us about which is a bit stressful).

M&S4: This ones the last theory unit and I haven't really enjoyed most of them. I like this one more than the ones last year, but this focusses on jazz theory and I haven't really played or listen to a lot of jazz music.

Performance Lab: I don't really enjoy my lecturer for this (which is annoying because I've had her since sem 2 last year) and I feel like most of the classes aren't structured well. The classes aren't very interesting or engaging sometimes which is really disappointing.

Compulsary attendance: I need to attend at least 80% of all music & education stuff. :(

Whats worse is I have a 5 1/2 hour break in between my morning class and the 6-8 lecture.

Will you be continuing with other German units in the future, or not feasible?

As part of my degree, I have to complete 24 UoC of one language so I complete the last part of that next term with Intermediate B. I wish I could do more but it just doesn't fit in my program after the compulsory 24 credits :-(
