Exclusions
Description The ability of concisely and effectively communicating ideas, both in written form and via oral presentations, is essential in everyday life and job. The ability of posing and successfully solving general problems is one of the key outcomes of the training of a physicist. In this module we will provide a guide to make oral and written presentations of scientific work. We will also address how to pose, attack and solve general problems in physics.
Learning Outcomes By the end of the module students should be able to:
  • deliver a talk about a scientific topic;
  • make a written presentation of scientific work; tackle general problems in physics;
  • have a firm grounding in the key concepts of classical mechanics and be able to solve problems related to these topics;
  • have a firm grounding in the key concepts of thermodynamics and be able to solve problems related to these topics;
  • have a firm grounding in the key concepts of electromagnetism and be able to solve problems related to these topics;
