Learning and Teaching Methods
The lecture is ex-cathedra teaching, exercises are given as interactive teaching (calculation of examples). The questioning hour is of major support for students.
Animated powerpoint presetation with figures of relevant physical devices and processes. Complicated matter (e.g. deduction of formulas) is written on a tablet PC into the ppt file and projected. Many experiments are shown.
