1.3. demonstrate a thorough knowledge and understanding of basic concepts in techniques
2. APPLYING KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
2.1. identify and describe important aspects of a particular physical phenomenon or problem
2.2. identify and describe important aspects of techniques and their applications
2.3. recognize and follow the logic of arguments, evaluate the adequacy of arguments and construct well supported arguments
2.4. use mathematical methods to solve standard physics problems
3. MAKING JUDGMENTS
3.1. develop a critical scientific attitude towards research in general, and in particular by learning to critically evaluate arguments, assumptions, abstract concepts and data
4. COMMUNICATION SKILLS
4.1. communicate effectively with pupils and colleagues
4.2. present complex ideas clearly and concisely
5. LEARNING SKILLS
5.1. search for and use professional literature as well as any other sources of relevant information
