Learning Outcomes of the Curricular Unit:
The main objective of this course is to provide the student with the skills in the conceptual understanding of the Newtonian mechanics and electric and magnetic fields and the ability to apply those concepts to solve problems.
Introduction to Mechanics. Equilibrium Conditions for particles. Kinematics. Particle Dynamics. Electric fields. Magnetic fields.
Demonstration of the Syllabus Coherence with the Curricular Unit's Objectives:
The syllabus presented covers the essential and consistent areas of knowledge required to achieve the objectives, as the main topics included in the program such as: the equilibrium of particles, kinematics and dynamics of particles cover the main aspects of study that enable students to select and properly apply the principles of the physical behavior of elements to solve engineering problems developed in specific courses.
Teaching Methodologies (Including Evaluation):
The methodology of teaching and learning is expository, interrogative and demonstrative. Drawing on problem solving and study geared to allow the interpretation of fundamental principles of Newtonian mechanics and of electric and magnetic fields.
The evaluation includes:
• Practical theoretical tests (1st test 35% and 2nd test 25%)
• Laboratorial match test, developed in the group and performed after each test (20% average of match tests)
• Test on laboratory practices (20%)
Demonstration of the Coherence between the Teaching Methodologies and the Learning Outcomes:
The proposed methodologies are consistent with the objectives set for the course since they rely on the interpretation of the theory and practical application of Newtonian mechanics concepts studied, establishing a parallel between the theory and the practice applied to real problems, thereby helping to develop the student's ability to apply the principles of the physical behaviour of elements for problem solving in Computer Systems Engineering.
