English version.  Educational objectives
 The main objective of the course is the knowledge of basic physics.The main skills (i.e. the ability to apply the knowledge acquired) will be: the application of basic physics in solving physical and nonphysical problems; the application of this knowledge in problems related to the course of study; the development of the ability to build tools and methods in the study of theoretical concepts and in their application that can be used to face new situations.
 Prerequisites
 In order to understand the teaching topics and be able to successfully carry out exercises and applications, it is useful to have attended the Mathematics course and possibly passed the exam.The topics covered in the course of teaching require the ability to solve simple limits, derivatives and integrals.
 Teaching methods
 frontal teaching with theoretical lessons and exercises class
 Learning verification modality
 The exam includes a written test and an oral test. The written test consists in solving 2 or 3 physics problems. It lasts about 2 hours and is aimed at verifying the understanding of theoretical knowledge and the ability to apply them, as well as the ability to reason in solving the proposed problems.The oral exam consists of a discussion lasting about 1530 minutes aimed at to ascertain the level of knowledge and understanding reached by the student on the contents of the course, as well as to evaluate the student's ability to exhibit.
