b. Specific formulation for this course
At the end of this teaching unit, the student will be able to:
The contribution of this Teaching Unit to the development and command of the skills and learning outcomes of the programme(s) can be accessed at the end of this sheet, in the section entitled “Programmes/courses offering this Teaching Unit”.
The entire topic will be presented in the theoretical course via slides and blackboard notes. The fundamental concepts will be illustrated using applications to modern life, short films/animations and experiments. The supervised exercises will play an essential role in the comprehension of the theoretical course and allow the application of theoretical concepts studied to real problems. The list of problems to be solved during the exercise session and a list of additional problems will appear on the UCL LPHY1122 Moodle site approximately one week prior to each exercise session. Preparation of the problems to be solved is obligatory. Participation in the practical laboratory sessions is obligatory. A description of the tasks to be carried out in the laboratory will appear on the UCL LPHY1122 Moodle site approximately one week prior to each session. It is essential that this description be read carefully and that the preliminary questions be answered prior to the session. A laboratory report must be written and at the end of the session and it will be assessed. One tutorial, during which the students may ask their questions to the teaching team, will be organised each week.
The test and the exam will include various problems similar to those solved in the supervised exercise sessions (in the exam, one of these problems will be taken from the list of problems solved in the sessions) and some questions whose aim is to confirm that the concepts and developments presented during the theoretical course have been well absorbed (comprehension questions, demonstrations, true or false with or without justification, multiple-choice questions or gap-filling exercises).
Everything studied during the theoretical lessons and supervised exercise sessions should be known for the test and the exam. The students have access to the data on UCL's LPHY1122 Moodle site. Students must have a simple scientific calculator in both assessments.
Le cours théorique suit assez fidèlement les livres « Physique, 1. Mécanique, 5ème édition » et « Physique, 2 Electricité et Magnétisme, 5ème édition » écrits par H. Benson et édité par De Boeck. D'autres références bibliographiques peuvent être demandées à l'enseignant.
