Master classes where theoretical concepts are explained, and academic exercises are solved (2.0 ECTS).
The following information will be provided one week in advance: brief theoretical concepts of the session; bibliography list, including charters or sections related to the concepts covered in the lecture.
Classes in small groups where the theoretical concepts will be applied to problem solving (3.2 ECTS).
These sessions are focused on solving exercises, addressed to apply and understand the main concepts presented in the Master classes. Periodic individual work will also be revised.
The objective of these sessions is developing the following skills:
Understanding the exercise text (for instance, drawing a scheme of the data).
Identifying the physical phenomena and laws included in the exercise.
Developing skills to solve the exercise (for instance, dividing the exercise in smalls tasks).
Being careful when using the math required to solve the exercise.
Analyzing if the obtained result makes sense (do the units make sense?)
Submitting and defending the result and solution of personal-work, periodic exercises.
Practical laboratory sessions (0.2 ECTS).
The main skills involved are:
Understanding that Physics is a fundamental science and that the concepts learnt in the Master Classes can be reproduced in the laboratory.
Using scientific devices and learning to be careful when using them.
Learning to take experimental data in a rigorous way.
Learning the basics of data treatment.
Making a report that includes the taken data and their analysis.
Making a critical analysis of the results (is the objective of the practice achieved?).
Mid-term exams and/or final exam (0.6 ECTS).
Tutorials: 1-hour session for each master and small-group class.
