Mode of delivery

Starting from the operational and functional aspects of the discipline, anchoring aspects of daily life and the technical applications ie, its predictive and prescriptive, the course investigates the correlates conceptual and methodological aspects. Also, the lectures will be held with the help of virtual laboratories in order to create a critical spirit, starting from the problematic nature of the experiment (or measure) and its relation with the theoretical description.
