- The teaching method is based on a continuous student activity during the semester;
- For the understanding of concepts and laws of Physics, a mixed approach, with both theory and experiment is followed (also some computation and simulation are introduced). In laboratory sessions, besides the demonstration and verification of Physics laws, emphasis is given to metrology;
- Continuous involvement of the students (beyond lectures e laboratory sessions) through on-line self-evaluation quizzes on each chapter, through Moodle.
