FISI-1000 Prephysics

The pre-physics course is designed to help the students who may not be well prepared in subjects as physics and mathematics. Subjects as arithmetic, algebra, geometry and trigonometry, as well as techniques as handling of graphs, equations and problem-solving, all of the aforesaid within a physical context, analyzing simple situations in terms of optics, kinematics, dynamics, acoustics and electromagnetism.

FISI-1004A Great Ideas of Physics

What are the basic concepts upon the origin and evolution of the universe, and about the matter´s most fundamental structure from atoms to quarks? In the search for answers we explore the greatest unifying ideas we see in the cosmos. From the old Greeks to modern science: Scientific Understanding of nature, mathematics and experiments as the foundations of modern science. Great ideas on Physics: From the movement of the sky and earth to universal laws. The concept of the atom: Moving atoms. Symmetry and conservation laws. Entropy law: Second law of thermodynamics. Unification: From electricity and magnetism to the light. The relativist universe: The condition of relativity of space-time. The quantum universe: The most fundamental structure of the matter.

FISI-1006A Physics for space travel

Black holes, time travels, antimatter reactors, quantum teleportation, nanotechnology and robots are examples of what we find in travels of exploration on the universe. These travels are coupled by concepts of relativist and quantum concepts of physics. We will study the reality and the promises of the modern physics, and its technological derivates explored with the futuristic vision of the popular series Star Trek, the current technological derivates and the possibilities for the future.

FISI-1018 Physics I

The aim of the course is to help the student develop a critical attitude towards the solution of scientific and practical problems. The student will be introduced to the scientific method through the study of the laws of mechanic, including kinematics in one and two dimensions, Newton´s laws, conservation laws, rotational motion, gravitation and har- monic motion, at a level suitable for beginning undergraduates. The experiments performed during the semester will help the student to better understand the concepts in mechanics acquired in the theory class and to relate real physical phenomena with the models used to describe them.
