        • The course covers a range of topics ranging from material partially covered in high school (i.e. waves, de Broglie, structure of the atom) as well as more advanced topics. The main challenge of the course is to explain basic notions in quantum mechanics while avoiding heavy mathematical formalism. This includes introducing general notions, explaining  basic experiments and Gedanken-Experiment and clarifying paradoxes. 

          Grading
          • Homework (0 points):
          • Oral exam (100%): The course will be graded based on a short oral exam, where students will be asked to show proficiency in the lecture material.
