Schedule online

Units courses prerequisite and corequisite

Prerequisite or corequisite units are presented within each program

Learning unit contents

In this course, groups of 2 or 3 students are asked to program applications that implement the notions studied in the physics and mathematics courses. The aim is to ease the understanding of these subjects, by studying their concrete applications. The programming environment is identical to the one of the first programming project (INFO2056-1).

Learning outcomes of the learning unit

At the end of this course, students will have learned how to apply to concrete problems the concepts studied in the physics and mathematics courses.

Prerequisite knowledge and skills

Students must be sufficiently at ease with the programming environnement used in this course (relying on the Pygame Python module). The basic physics and mathematics courses should either have been followed prior to this course, or be followed at the same time.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

The course is organized as weekly lab sessions to which attendance is mandatory, supervised by professors, teaching assistants, and teaching aids. Part of the work can also be done at home prior to the lab sessions.

Mode of delivery (face to face, distance learning, hybrid learning)

Face-to-face course

Additional information:

Mandatory weekly lab sessions.

Recommended or required readings

Mathematics and physics courses.

Continuous assessment

Additional information:

Students have to fill in a lab sheet during each lab session, which is evaluated. The course is graded on the basis of these evaluations, as well as the participation to the lab sessions. There is no exam.


Work placement(s)

Organisational remarks and main changes to the course

Since the evaluation takes place during the course, there is no possibility of a second session.
