Learning activities and teaching methods

Simple experiments, Activating (Simulation, games, dramatization), Exercises on PC, Individual work of students, Elearning

Learning outcomes

The aim of the course is to compensate and to expand fundamental knowledge of high school physics on the level of grammar school, update knowledge of basic principles for students who have completed secondary school physics to a limited extent. After completeng the course, students will be able to use the basic principles in other areas, especially in technical subjects. The content of the course are selected chapters covering the principles of kinematics, dynamics, oscillations and waves, electric and magnetic fields, thermodynamics and radioactivity.
Bacis knowledge of the secondery school mathematics

Prerequisites

Bacis knowledge of the secondery school mathematics

Assessment methods and criteria

Grade (Using a grade system), Analysis of seminar paper, Analysis of a presentation given by the student
Course completion  credit, exam Obligatory attendence at exercises and laboratory exercises, succesful tests on the excercises at least 60%, written seminary work at least 60%. The result of a subject examination is expressed on a sixpoint scale: A "výborně" (i.e. "excellent"), B "velmi dobře" (i.e. "very good"), C "dobře" (i.e. "good"), D "uspokojivě" (i.e. "satisfactory"), E "dostatečně" (i.e. "sufficient"), F "nedostatečně" (i.e. "fail").
