Teaching Methods

Direct teaching with active student participation. Challenges in the lectures.

- Theoretical-classes accompanied with projection of transparencies and sometimes with video presentations and computer animations;

- Classes of experimental demonstrations;

- Development of supporting texts covering all taught subject;

- Development of solved and discussed problems, exemplary of the matter taught;

 

TP classes of application of concepts and laws and Physical problem solving.

Classes discussion of theoretical and practical typical application examples;

Classes should always be open to discussion
