Course objectives
The aim of this course is to obtain a clear knowledge of the subject optics at university level. Emphasis is placed on the logical construction of the science disciplines and to acquire knowledge and skills needed for teaching physics at the primary school (it is included lectures to a large number of simple experiments and emphasized the relationship discussed the substance of the practice, nature, home, etc.). Knowledge: Comprehensive overview of the subject of Optics with an emphasis on the relationship of the subject matter to practice, nature, household, technical applications, etc. Skills: To be able to identify the principles of natural processes and technical applications. Make sufficient approximation on the basis of basic physical laws and make subsequent calculations of simple application examples. To know simple experiments and the relation of the subject matter to practical applications. To be able to make a qualified estimate of values. Attitudes: Acquire the values of objectivity and importance of scientific work.
Learning outcomes
After completing the course, the student should be able to/know: Basic Laws of Optics. Identify principles based on optics for natural processes and technical applications. Describe simple experiments and the relationship between the subject matter and the practical applications Perform calculations of simple application examples.
