Learning activities and teaching methods
Monologic (reading, lecture, briefing), Dialogic (discussion, interview, brainstorming), Work with text (with textbook, with book)
Learning outcomes
The aim of this course is to provide students with basics of physical tools with respect to their study field.
Subject broadens the high school knowledge and provides students with the basics of physics necessary for study of following subjects. Solution of advanced physical problems.
Not specified.

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

1) The examination has written and oral part. Both parts are assessed together. 2) Reference materials of any type can be used at the test, although a good knowledge of physical relations is essential at the oral examination. 3) The stress is put on the understanding of a given problem and on the ability to apply the acquired information. 4) Knowledge of the terminology and information about individual fields in descriptive form is essential, but not sufficient to pass the examination. 5) Mathematical ability: Good knowledge of mathematic ability in the scope of subjects Mathematics I and Mathematics II is essential, due to the fact that the fundament of physics is mathematical formulation of natural processes (not general information on the latter). The stress is put on mathematical formulation of a given problem and on the demonstration of the ability to work with a given formula. However, a detailed calculation is not required. The errors in calculation caused otherwise than by incomprehension or by essential lack of mathematical ability, have no decisive power in terms of the performance evaluation..
