Catherine Even and Fatma Briki give different courses of physics to the licence and master students of Paris-Saclay University .


Catherine Even
In my teaching, I try to emphasize on experiments, applications and connections to everyday life.
I feel also very concerned about the climate issue, and thus introduced climate physics in my courses : there is a devoted chapter on the climate in my thermodynamics course + a corresponding tutorial, and I teach climate and energy issues within a course entitled “sustainable development”, and also a course entirely devoted to the climate.


Teaching for 2020-2021 :
— Thermodynamics (L2) : lecture
— Fluid mechanics (L3) : lecture + tutorial + practical
— Sustainable development (L1) : lecture (climate-energy issues) + tutorial
— SPOC (Small Private Online Course, L2) : lecture (climate-energy issues) + tutorial
— Climate, as a societal issue (M1) : lecture + tutorial
— Responsible for the pathway L3 « Techniques Physiques des Energies »


In the past (among others) :
— Experimental projects : see the manuscript here describing the projects, and two articles on some of the experiments :
* R. Henaff, G. Le Doudic, B. Pilette, C. Even, J-M Fischbach, F. Bouquet, J. Bobroff, M. Monteverde and C. Marrache-Kikuchi, A study of kinetic friction : the Timoshenko oscillator, Am. J. Phys. 86(3), 174 (2018).
* A. Hilberer, G. Laurent, A. Lorin, A. Partier, J. Bobroff, F. Bouquet, C. Even, J-M Fischbach, C. A. Marrache-Kikuchi, M. Monteverde, B. Pilette, and C. Quay, Temperature-dependent transport mesaurements with Arduino, accepted at Papers in Physics. See the manuscript here.
— creation of an innovative optics course ; highlight 2016 of European Journal of Physics ( C. Even, C. Balland, V. Guillet,Learning through experimenting : an original way of teaching geometrical optics, Eur. J. Phys., 37 (2016) 065707) : see
— creation of a new experiment for the students : see C. Even, F. Bouquet , J. Rémond and B. Deloche, Measuring viscosity with a levitating magnet :application to complex fluids, Eur. J. Phys. 30, 13 (2009)
