Basic skills are integrated into the competence aims for this course in areas where they contribute to the development of and are a part of the basic subject competences. In the Technology and theory of research programme subject, basic skills are understood as follows:
To be able to express oneself orally and in writing in Technology and theory of research implies using precise formulations, professional terminology and mathematical forms of expression. It also means developing hypotheses, keeping notes and reporting on procedural methods and results from research work, and evaluating others' work by giving constructive feedback. It also means giving subject-specific information in the form of tables, graphs, figures and mathematical symbol language.
To be able to read in Technology and theory of research implies extracting, interpreting and reflection over information from technical and scientific texts and digital mediums. It also means understanding user manuals, recipes, tables, diagrams and symbols.
Numeracy in Technology and theory of research implies using numbers and calculations for registering and handling results from observations and measurements, and presenting these in the form of tables and diagrams. It also means interpreting and using formulas and models. In laboratories and workshops, this implies calculating unit measurements, changing formula expressions, evaluating information in graphic form, doing uncertainty calculations and using mathematical models.
To be able to use digital tools in Technology and theory of research implies using digital registration tools for monitoring and control of experiments, simulations and gathering data. Documentation and publication using multimedia aids is also included in this subject. It also means using digital tools to develop models, calculate values, reformulate expressions and scaling.
