Additional information
Method of calculating the final grade:

Grading:
Evaluations of laboratory exercises (PMWFlexer ) are calculated on the basis of the points from the reports and activities in the laboratory, under the Rules of Studies University. Evaluation of the lecture (PMWFlect) is determined on the basis of the results of the first completion test in accordance with the Regulations Studies University.

Grading formula: FG= PMWFlect *w*PMGlect + PMWFlexer*w*PMGlexer
Where:
• FG-final grade
• PMWFlexer – Laboratory exercises weighting factor – 0,6
• PMGlexer– Grade of achieved LOs relevant to laboratory exercises
• PMWFlect– Lecture part weighting factor – 0,4
• PMGlect – Grade of achieved LOs relevant to lecture part

w = 1 for the I term, w = 0.9 for the second term, w = 0.8 for third term

All LO weighting factors associated with part of the module (PM) equal 1.

Prerequisites and additional requirements:

General knowledge of physics and mathematics. Ability to perform laboratory measurements, general knowledge of measurement techniques and basics of data processing.
