Course unit structured in the following modules:

Learning objectives

The Integrated Course of Propedeutic Sciences I aims to provide to the students a solid knowledge and understanding of both the experimental method, and the topics specified in the programs of the single modules.
The course also aims to develop the students' capability to apply such knowledge and understanding in further University studies, in continuing
education and in their future professional expertise.



Course unit content

The Integrated Course of Propedeutical Sciences I comprises the Modules of Applied Physics I and Applied Physics II. Specific contents are reported
in the description of each single Module.

Teaching methods

Lectures will be held on-site in compliance with safety standards. Supporting material will be available on the specific, student-reserved platform (Elly) and will include slide presentations, audio-video aids or video-recording of the lectures.
During lectures, the topics contained in the program of the modules will be illustrated and commented. Emphasis will be posed on the applications to Biology and Medicine of basic physics principles, with examples of how such principles can lead to quantitative predictions on physiological and pathological phenomena.
In selected cases, the demontration of basic physics principles will be illustrated, with the aim to introduce the students to the practice of logical thinking and experimental approach.

Assessment methods and criteria

The achievement of the objectives of the module will be assessed through a 1-hour written examination, consisting in open questions on the topics of the course. This will allow to ascertain the knowledge and the understanding of both the theoretical bases and their consequences.
All parts of the written exam will be equally weighted in the final evaluation in thirtieths.
The final mark, reported directly on Esse3, will correspond to the arithmetic average of the assessments obtained in the written test.
Students with DSA / BES must first contact Centro Accoglienza e Inclusione: support for students with disabilities, D.S.A., B.E.S. (
