1.1 Mathematics in Egyptian history
The Egyptians are known for being ahead of their time in comparison to some civilisations that came after them. This unit looks at how the Egyptians solved mathematical problems in everyday life and the technology they used. An understanding of this area has only been possible following the translation of the Rosetta Stone.
Britain was the first country to industrialise, and it acquired the largest empire ever during this same period. But its sphere of economic influence extended far beyond the boundaries of the formal British Empire. This unit focuses on the economics of empire, using a case study of one town, Dundee in eastern Scotland, to explore this huge topic.

Brian Kernighan: The Changing Face of Programming PDF
The rapid evolution of languages, tools, environments, and expectations presents major challenges and opportunities for programmers and for software engineering education. This is true across all kinds of programming, but is especially so for Web systems, which are now routinely written in untyped scripting languages and include Ajax, mashups, toolkits, frameworks like Rails and Django, and a profusion of interfaces, all operating asynchronously on distributed systems. For the past 7 or 8 years
Robert Vanderbei: Digitizing the Universe From Your Backyard
Lunch 'n Learn presentation: Learn how the modern digital world in makes it possible, even almost easy, for amateurs to take astrophotos in their own backyards that are better than those taken at professional observatories only a generation ago. The key enablers are computer controlled mounts for very precise pointing control, CCD cameras, and modern image processing tools.

For proof of this close to home, you need only to look at the composition of the MIT student body: 8 percent of the undergraduates an
