Units courses prerequisite and corequisite

Prerequisite or corequisite units are presented within each program

Learning unit contents

In this course, groups of 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)

Mandatory weekly lab sessions.

Recommended or required readings

Mathematics and physics courses.

Students must submit each program on time and will be evaluated on that basis.
The grade for the course is entirely determined by these evaluations and by attendance at the sessions.
There is no exam, and no opportunity to retry during the second session.

Work placement(s)

Organisational remarks and main changes to the course

The course takes place in the computer lab rooms of the Mathematics Institute (B37).
