Learning Objectives

The course is devoted to the presentation of the foundations of classical physics. Physics laws are proposed highlighting the experimental scientifiìc method that is the base for the study of nature's laws. Whenever possible connections with contemporary research are presented as well.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

  • D1 - Knowledge and understanding - The student should possess a proper knowledge of the main physical laws and of the interconnections between them, as well as of the experiments and processes leading to their formulation.
  • D2 - Applying knowledge and understanding - The student should be able to apply the main physical laws to understand common natural phenomena, even when these are not directly relevant for physics but also, for example, for biology.
  • D3 - Making judgements - The student must show a proper autonomy in his knowledge, not simply recalling it by heart.
  • D4 - Communicaion skills -  The use of an appropriate scientific language is required.
  • D5 - Learning skills - The ability of autonomous deeper study of one ore more topics is appreciated.
