1.Using suitably the physics-mathematical language to structure and express opinions.
2.Applying physic concepts, principles and theories to problematic situations of the real world.
3.Searching, selecting and organising information to later turn into applicable knowledge to daily phenomena.
4.Adopting scientific strategies suitable for problem solving and decision making.
5.Performing activities in an autonomous, responsible and creative way, in a collaborative environment.

E-learning (fully online).
Continuous assessment is privileged: 2 digital written documents (e-folios) during the semester (40%) and a final digital test, Global e-folio (e-folio G) at the end of the semester (60%). In due time, students can alternatively choose to perform one final exam (100%).
