Learning activities and teaching methods
Monologic (reading, lecture, briefing)
  • Preparation for classes - 15 hours per semester
  • Class attendance - 39 hours per semester
  • Preparation for credit - 25 hours per semester
Learning outcomes
The aim of the course is to provide students with deeper and broader knowledge of the basic course of physics - Mechanics, Molecular Physics and Thermics. This knowledge also allows him to study the more difficult parts of physics in higher grades.
After completing the course, the student is able to orientate himself in the problems of Mechanics, Molecular Physics and Thermics, he is able to independently solve difficult problems and examples from mechanics, Molecular Physics and Thermics.
Prerequisites
Fundamentals of higher mathematics and physics.

Assessment methods and criteria
Student performance assessment, Interim evaluation

Attendance at 80% of seminar hours. Completion of 70% examples, answering at least 80% of the content of the questions.
