After completing this course, the student can:|
a) cooperate in a group to apply the scientific research method to mechanics problems, and find, evaluate, and use relevant information responsibly
b) report on research in oral and written form, use LaTeX, and make clear plots.
This module contains a project with a study load of about 3 EC. The project is not supposed to be an illustration of the subjects of the other parts, but rather an integration and a means to learn the various subjects (i.e. project lead learning (PLL)). |
In the project students will choose a research question related to a relevant dynamical system from a list of in total 15 descriptions. They all are related to the Mechanics and Calculus 1 parts of the module, but go much deeper than, e.g., the drills but also the week problems. The project starts with a problem analysis, contains a (mathematical) modelling step and the final answer obtained by solving this mathematical model must also be validated by an experiment.
