The goal of the course is to provide students with basic physics and computer science concepts. As far as the physics module is concerned, the laws of mechanics, thermodynamics and electromagnetism will be presented and problems will be proposed in order to highlight the importance of matter for the understanding of natural phenomena in a quantitative way. The information technology module will provide the tools for data analysis and data management.
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the course, the student will have learned the basic elements of the experimental method, the basic physical laws and will be able to solve simple basic physics problems in a quantitative manner. The student must also demonstrate that he is able to understand the basic principles concerning the functioning of a computer and be able to create and manage spreadsheets.
