Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Teaching methods include lectures, seminars, computer laboratories and practical laboratories. The course is supported by an e-learning system. Students have to write a homework (a single assignment) and they also have to attend a short test during the course. Setup of points that can be obtained during the course: 10 points - homework, 20 points - laboratories, 10 points - short test, 60 points - exam

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

Requirements for completion of a course are specified by a regulation issued by the lecturer responsible for the course and updated for every.

Language of instruction

English

Aims

The main objectives are: to provide the students with clear and logical presentation of the basic concepts and principles of physics, and to strengthen an understanding of these concepts and principles through a broad range of interesting applications.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

The content and forms of instruction in the evaluated course are specified by a regulation issued by the lecturer responsible for the course and updated for every academic year.
