Algebra, trigonometry, elementary analysis, vector calculus, knowledge and application of the three Newton's laws.
Students should familiarize themselves with such concepts as linear momentum, energy and angular momentum and eletromagnetic and sound waves, acquire reasoning skills and be able to apply concepts to real situations, obtaining, analyzing and evaluating predictions.
1 - Principles of variation of linear moment, energy and angular momentum. Application to computer simulations of the motion of projectiles,central movement and accelerated circular motion
2 - Oscillatory and wave motion. General characteristics of light and sound: velocity, refractive index, period, frequency, wavelength, electromagnetic spectrum and sound
Two intermediate tests consisting of extended writing and multiple-choice questions and answers.
