Module title:Practical Physics I
Module codePHY1027
Module lecturers:Dr J. Bertolotti
Module credits:15

This module provides a broad foundation in experimental physics, upon which practical work in the Stage 2 and subequent years builds. It starts with a short series of lectures, supplemented with on-line notes, on error analysis and graph plotting. Laboratory work is normally undertaken in pairs, with support from demonstrators. Experiments are recorded in lab-books and presented as formal reports. One of the experiments involves working as a group and preparing and delivering oral presentation in a conference-like environment. The final component of this module is the PHY0000 Communication and Key Skills course held in 'Opportunities Week', i.e. T1:06.
