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 and rigid bodies. Geometry of masses. 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 and rigid bodies, the geometry of masses, 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.
The evaluation of the theoretical component includes:
• Individual written tests and exercicses (80% average of tests and 15% average of exercises)
• Student performance, including attendance, resolution of proposed problems and active participation in classes (5%).
The assessment of laboratory practice component includes:
• Match test, developed in the group and performed after each test (40% average of match tests)
• Tests for individual assessment (50% average of tests)
• The student's performance, including attendance, technical performance, active participation in class and global interest as observed during the laboratory classes (10%).
The final grade is 80% of theoretical grade and 20% of the laboratory practice grade.
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 behavior of elements for problem solving in Computer Engineering.
