Course objectives
At the end of the course students should be able to explain and demonstrate the possibilities, how to utilize computer technology in physics teaching. They will be able to use computer measurement tools, especially school measurement systems. They will be able to solve selected physical problems by means of computer software. Only secondary school knowledge of computer technology is expected.
