68203 Biomedical Physics Methodology6cp; 4hpw: 2hpw (theory workshop), 2 hpw (practical)
Requisite(s): (68201 Physics 2 OR 68037 Physical Modelling OR 68041 Physical Aspects of Nature) AND (33290 Statistics and Mathematics for Science OR 33230 Mathematics 2 OR 33116 Design, Data, and Decisions)
This is predominantly an experimentally based subject. It builds upon the approach to experimentation introduced in the first year and provides a firm foundation for later experimental work. In particular, a focus is brought to methods of measurement and principles of data analysis of relevance to laboratory-based experimentation. The subject reinforces basic principles with practical applications drawn from various areas of applied physics. Open-ended, project-based experiments are a major feature of this subject, where experimental design, data analysis and faithful and accurate reporting are emphasised.
