Learning activities and teaching methods
Monologic (reading, lecture, briefing), Dialogic (discussion, interview, brainstorming), Work with text (with textbook, with book)
Learning outcomes
Subject introduces students into basics of general physics - mechanics, electrostatics, electrodynamics, and electromagnetism.
Subject substitutes the high school matter and makes the students ready for F1 lectures. Solution of basic physical problems.
Prerequisites
Since it is introduction they are not specified.

Assessment methods and criteria
Oral examination, Written examination, Student performance assessment

Three written exams (two of them within semester and summarizing one prior to oral exam). They constitute approx. 40% of overall exam rating. Oral exam on three topic of the syllabus. To pass the examination student must achieve at least 50% points of summarizing written exam.
