Learning outcomes
Fundamental physics for students of Teacher Training for Primary School pupils (aged 6-11). Experiments, measurements of fundamental physical quantities inmechanics, thermodynamics, electricity, megnetism and optics. Fundamental principle of astronomy. For students of Teaching of physics for second-degree of primary school course serves to deepen the knowledge of elementary curriculum and to approach the possibilities of teaching the basics of science. These teachers often teach in practice at the first grade of primary school lessons in natural science.
Basic knowledge of physics including practical skills
