Physics University of Tsukuba
Introduction to physics for life and environmental sciences. Basic areas of mechanics, thermodynamics, and waves will be covered.
1) To help students to learn and enjoy physics; 2) Develop problem-solving skills that lead to success in future courses; 3) Promote learning and success in chosen careers.
Subject-specific competences 1: Systematic expertise To help students become critical thinkers by understanding scientific concepts that will form a basis for making important decisions about issues concerning life and the environment.
A short report / questionnaire will be given for each lecture. The deadline of the report / questionnaire will be approximately one week after the lecture. Class attitude: 50% (including weekly reports), Final report: 50%.
