The objectives of the theoretical and exercise lectures are: 1) improve the understanding of the concepts associated to basic laws of mechanics; 2) use accurate scientific language; 3) formulate and solve, systematically, real word problems.
The objectives of laboratory lectures are: 1) acquire experimental skills in applied physics, with particular emphasis in mechanics; 2) acquire and process experimental data; 3) write scientific reports.
