STRATEGIES FOR IMPROVING THE MINIMUM LEVEL OF THE STUDENTS OF PHYSICS COURSES IN THE FIRST YEAR OF SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING DEGREES: A SPECIAL CASE IN THE SPANISH EDUCATION

Within the Spanish Education Framework, any student from High School can access any Degree in the University, and there are no special requirements for the students accessing Science and Engineering Degrees. This leads to a difficult situation for both students and professors in the first year of the Degree: many students do not have the minimum knowledge in Mathematics, Basic Computing, and Physics required to successfully attend Physics Courses. This makes the success rate of these courses to decrease at an alarming rate.

This problem is affecting many students in the Physics I Course from the Engineering Degrees (Mechanical Engineering (ME), Chemical Engineering (CE), Industrial Technologies Engineering (ITE), and Electrical Engineering (EE)) in Universitat Jaume I. For this reason, it is necessary to improve the students’ knowledge in Mathematics, Basic Computing, and Physics during the first days of the Physics Course, to ensure its proper development and help the students to achieve the objectives of the course.

We do not aim to implement a thorough curse of basic Mathematics, Physics and Computing inside the Physics Course, but to give the students a helpful guide with the resources they need to achieve the required knowledge on their own.
