Preparatory course in physics 2022

The Department of Physics of the University of Münster conducts an annual preliminary course for first-year students

 

The preliminary course will take place in the week from 19.09.2022 to 23.09.2022.

Content

The preparatory course in physics aims at providing freshmen in the Bachelor’s courses in physics (including the programs for becoming physics teachers), geophysics as well as mathematics and computer science with the minor subject physics, with the required background to successfully complete the introductory module “Physics I”. Its purpose is to align the different levels of knowledge of the students. The course consists of a combination of lectures and exercises supervised by tutors. The topics of the course comprise the subjects of the senior classes of German high schools with a particular emphasis on the mathematical methods required for physics.
 
The preparatory course consists hours of lectures and hours of exercises during 5 days in September. The following schedule is envisaged for 2021:

The preparatory course in physics consists of lectures covering different subjects of physics and in particular the basic mathematical methods needed in physics. In addition to the lectures, exercises will be given to the students which are solved by the participants in small exercise groups under the supervision of tutors. The topics of the lectures and exercises are related to the curriculum of the German high school (Gymnasium) and to the requirements for a successful participation in the lecture Physics I in the bachelor’s course in physics.

Location

The sessions take place in the rooms of the physics department (Wilhelm-Klemm-Straße 9 and 10, 48149 Münster), see site plan.

Materials for the priliminary course 2022

  • Übungsblätter

    Hinweis: zur Bearbeitung der Übungsaufgaben wird ein Taschenrechner benötigt!

    Im Anschluss an die jeweilige Vorlesung wird die Mitschrift den Vorkurs-Teilnehmern an dieser Stelle bereitgestellt.

Frequently asked questions

  • When and where do I have to show up?
    Given that this year the lectures are online, all participants are kindly asked to come directly to the exercise classes. The assignment of participants to the classes/rooms will be published in Learnweb and all registered participants will become an email with the assignments.
  • Do I have to pay a fee?
    No fees have to be paid, the costs will be covered by the University of Münster and the Department of Physics. Of course, costs for traveling to the University and for lunches you have to pay by yourself.
  • Where can I have lunch?
    In the Mensa am Ring, which is located close by. You will get a certificate of attendance; with this you will have to pay only the students’ price for the meals. (map)
  • Where can I park my car?
    Nearby the Mensa am Ring, in Domagkstr. 62, there is the parking garage Coesfelder Kreuz (map) where free parking is offered.
