Course content
Solving complex problems from following branches of physics: - mechanics - molecular and thermal physics - electricity and magnetism (part I; part II will be covered in the follow-up course Solving physics problems for high school II.)

Learning activities and teaching methods
Monologic (reading, lecture, briefing), Dialogic (discussion, interview, brainstorming), Graphic and art activities, Work with multi-media resources (texts, internet, IT technologies), Flipped classroom
Learning outcomes
The objective of this course is to widen the students' abilities to solve complex and difficult physics problems.
ability to solve difficult and complex high-school physics problems (mainly from branches: mechanics, molecular physics and heat, electricity and magnetism)
ability to solve simple and normal physics problems on high-school level (from all branches of physics) and university level (mechanics, molecular physics and heat, electricity and magnetism)

Assessment methods and criteria
Student performance assessment, Systematic student observation, Self-reflection, Interim evaluation

regular presence (absence at one exercise tolerated), performance of solutions to problems in font of peers
