Although there are no mandatory prerequisites for this exam, students are strongly recommended to take it after Calculus. It is also worth noticing that the topics covered by this course will be used in Physics II.
Didactics, Attendance, Course Books and Assessment
Theory lectures and exercises, both face-to face and on-line.
Although recommended, course attendance is not mandatory.

Written exam and oral exam. The written exam is passed if the mark (which is valid for the exam calls of the same academic year) is at least 15/30. The oral exam can be taken only if the written exam is passed. The final mark is the weighted average of the written and the oral marks with weights 1/3 and 2/3, respectively
The course is offered both face-to-face and on-line within the Laurea Degree Program in Applied Computer Science. For additional lecture notes and information see http://hal.fis.uniurb.it/fisicaI-info/
