Learning Objectives

Starting from basic concepts of classical physics, the course introduces logic and conceptual methodologies to correctely approach scientific arguments which the students will face during their academic studies and work experience. 

The learning objects thus apply to the procedures of abstraction, formalization for a quantitative approach, experimental method application.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Knowledge and understanding: the student will know the main laws of Physics, particularly in the fields of point mass mechanics, of the mechanics of the rigid body and of the fluids. The student will possess basic knowledge of electrostatic and magnetism, and of electrodynamics.
Applying knowledge and understanding: the student will be in position to apply the laws of Physics to real problems, and to solve them both in a qualitative and quantitative way.
Making judgements: the students will be able to assess the plausibility of a result, both on the basis of correct units, and by means of analogical reasoning and scientific sense.
Communication skills: the student will acquire a correct scientific language, which includes the appropriate use of the units..

Teaching, Attendance, Course Books and Assessment

Teaching

Lectures.

Attendance

Attendance is strongly recommended.

Course books

Fundamentals of Physics, D. Halliday, R. Resnick, J. Walker, Wiley

Assessment

Written and oral test. The written test consists of a multiple choice test and open questions and is considered passed when a vote of 18/30 is achieved. The oral test will focus on the discussion of the written test and on the presentation of the topics covered in the course.

EVALUATION CRITERIA AND PARAMETERS

For each item, four levels of assessment are given, corresponding to: insufficient (grade < 18); sufficient (17 < vote < 24); good (23 < vote < 28); excellent (27 < vote < 31)

Knowledge and understanding:

He does not know or roughly describes the topics covered

Describes with some inaccuracy the topics covered

Describes the topics in detail

Precisely and completely describes the topics covered


Applied knowledge and understanding

He doesn't know how to apply the principles and laws of physics to solving simple problems

Can apply the principles and laws of physics to solve simple problems

Can apply the principles and laws of physics to solve more complex problems

Can apply the principles and laws of physics and relate them to real problems for solving more complex problems


Making judgments:

He is unable to assess the correctness of the procedure used and the plausibility of the results.

Able to sufficiently evaluate the correctness of the procedure used and the plausibility of the results.

Able to evaluate the correctness of the procedure used and the plausibility of the results.

Able to evaluate the correctness of the procedure used and the plausibility of results and know how to contextualize the results.


Communication skills:

It is expressed in a non-specific common language

Demonstrates limited ability to express; use some specific terms

Demonstrates good ability to express and use some specific terms

Demonstrates full command of specific language

Disabilità e DSA

Le studentesse e gli studenti che hanno registrato la certificazione di disabilità o la certificazione di DSA presso l'Ufficio Inclusione e diritto allo studio, possono chiedere di utilizzare le mappe concettuali (per parole chiave) durante la prova di esame.

A tal fine, è necessario inviare le mappe, due settimane prima dell’appello di esame, alla o al docente del corso, che ne verificherà la coerenza con le indicazioni delle linee guida di ateneo e potrà chiederne la modifica.
