Lectures will be interactive, and will include physical demonstrations of topics covered. Students will be expected and encouraged to participate in English. Homework assignments will be given for each topic covered in the course. Students will be grouped into teams that will prepare and deliver a presentation to the class, teaching fellow students about topics in Physics they select. Students will formally evaluate each other's work.


Course materials will be provided by the instructor, or be available online.
