Learning outcomes

At the end of the course, perspective teachers will be able to project learning paths in Physics based on explorative and experimental activities in the fields of kinematics, dynamics, universal Gravitation, forces and their measurement, friction, equilibrium, liquids, electrical phenomena, light and vision, thermal phenomena, magnetic and electromagnetic phenomena, physics of sounds.
The laboratory modulus is part of the course and of the examination.

Syllabus

The course introduces in explorative and experiential modalities the following subjects, whiche are illustrated in detail in the slides on the e-learning website:
elements of kinematics, the three principles of dynamics, gravity weight and universal gravitation, friction, forces and equilibrium, liquids, thermal phenomena, electric phenomena, magnetic and electromagnetic phenomena, sounds, light an vision.

Assessment methods and criteria
