 Educational objectives
 The main goal of the moduls consists in fundamental classical Physics knowledge.The most important competences (i.e. the ability to apply the acquired knowledge) will be:applying basic Physics in the solution of Physics (and non Physics) problems;applying this theoretical knowledge to address problems related to this Course of Studies;developing the ability of building instruments and methods in the study of theoretical concepts and in their application, when facing new situations
 Prerequisites
 In order to be able to understand and apply the majority of the subjects addressed within the course, it is useful to have attended to the Mathematics course, and possibily have successufully passed the exam.Topics of the module do require the ability to solve simple limits, derivatives and integrals.
 Teaching methods
 Module lessons are held by the professor, twice a week, and consist of two hour front lessons and practical exercises and applications covering Physics problems.
 Other information
 Learning verification modality
 The exams consists of a written test and an oral one.The written test consists on the solution of onetwo Physics problems. The tests has a duration of about 2 hours. It is designed in such a way to evaluate the understanding of the theoretical knowledge as well as the ability to correctly apply it in the solution of the proposed issues.The oral exam consists in an interview lasting about 15 to 30 minutes, aiming at ascertaining the knowledge level and understanding acquired by the student on the theoretical content of the course, evaluating as well the student communication skills.
