Students will learn through selected examples and experimental work how science knowledge is constructed, how problems in science and technology are solved and how scientific ideas are communicated.
Iskanje primernih virov je del aktivnosti v okviru predmeta. Priporočene vire določi nosilec predmeta glede na izbrane primere. Priporočljiva dodatna literatura: / Searching for the suitable literature is part of the course activities. Course leader will suggest additional literature depending on the selected examples. Suggested additinal litterature includes:
Hobson A., Physics : Concepts and connections 4th Ed., Prentice Hall, 2006.
Bloomfield L., How things work 3rd Ed., J. Wiley & Sons, 2006.
Jones M et al, Balanced Science 1,2, Cambridge Univ. Press, 1998.
Hill J. W et al, Chemistry for Changing Times 10th Ed, Prentice Hall, 2004.
Students will widen their knowledge and understanding of scientific reasoning and how problems are solved in science and technology. Students will learn about different science disciplines, analytical reasoning, making reasonable simplifications based on assumptions when solving complex problems etc. Occasionally guest experts from will be invited to lead some course activities.
Students will learn some basic terminology in science and technology and deepen their understanding of some basic concepts and laws that are important in science (mainly at qualitative level).
Lessons, discussions, active learning using experiments as integral part of the activities.
