Learning and Teaching Methods
The learning results are worked out in several complementary building blocks. The lecture is supported by a presentation and the use of the blackboard. The presentation is provided in batches online before the lecture. The content of the lecture is engrossed in the exercise. There, solutions of the problems are worked out and are presented, which will prepare the students for the written exam. As a support, the consultation hours of the lecturer and the tutors are offered.
Lecture and exercise with presentation and use of blackboard. Moreover, the presentation of the lecture as well as problem sheets and solutions are provided online. Experiments.
The presentation of the lecture as well as the problem sheets are provided. The following books are recommended:
D. Meschede: Gerthsen Physik, Springer Verlag
Tipler: Physik für Wissenschaftler und Ingenieure, Spektrum
Description of exams and course work
A written exam takes place at the end of the second term. This way, it is ensured that a problem is recognized within limited time and with limited auxiliary means and that ways to a correct solutions are found. The exam covers the entire content of the module.
There is a possibility to take the exam in the following semester.
