Through examples, it will be shown how an analogous experience builds the knowledge, the prerequisites, the cognitive structures that lead the student to understand the main behavior of thermodynamic systems and systems of statistical mechanics. The consistency of the results obtained by the students is verified by comparing them with the theoretical ones foreseen by the general theory of these systems. It will also be shown how the student can identify particular and non-trivial solutions and characteristics of the physical systems studied through the analogous experience, using the research methods
