### Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

In this course the simple rules of probability, as they apply to the universe, are built up and the concept of entropy introduced, as an everyday function of the behaviour of the universe, without needing classical problems in heat distribution to justify it. The manner in which entropy governs the universe will be explored and expanded. Entropy will then be used to build up what are generally known as thermodynamic problems in such a way that their application is greatly simplified.

Energy derivatives, such as pressure and temperature will be developed at secondary functions and applied to the behaviour of the universe as a whole. Second derivatives, such as specific heat, will then become natural extensions of the earlier theory.

Modality of efficiency control: Each student will be asked, at the conclusion of the course, to make a 15 minute presentation to the class, in English, on a topic of his/her own choosing.

### Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

Emphasis will be placed on using these simplified methods to teach the basic concepts of physics. Everyday examples of the principles involved will be used frequently which can be used later by teachers in classroom situations. The course will be taught in English by a native English speaker (who does not speak German) and emphasis will be placed on improving the confidence in English of those whose confidence needs increasing and building the skills of those who are competent.
