Objectives and competences

Enhancement of knowledge of basic physics by cases, presented by experiments, where students also learn of different methods of measuring physical quantities.

Intended learning outcomes

Knowledge and understanding: Understanding of basic concepts: force, field, potential, energy, and temperature. The link between mechanical and thermodynamic quantities, the conservation of the total energy in nature.
Application: Acquired knowledge of physics can be used for building examples for the use of mathematical models (sistems of linear equations, derivative, integral, matrix diagonalization).
Reflection: The use of mathematical approach and formalism on concrete physical examples.
Transferable skills: Introduction to the methodology of using physical theories in observing phenomena in nature: building a theoretical model, definition of physical quantities and the variables that appear in the model, and comparison with measured quantities.

Learning and teaching methods

Lectures, exercises, homework, consultations

Assessment

Type (examination, oral, coursework, project):
2 midterm exams instead of written exam, written exam
oral exam
grading: 5 (fail), 6-10 (pass) (according to the Statute of UL)
