Roosevelt Newsreel 1937
Two silent newsreels from 1937. There is no narration so the video may best show fashions and culture of the time.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
At the time America was going through its worst economic crisis, Franklin Delano Roosevelt seemed to offer a natural talent for leadership. This film shows how that charismatic quality appealed to the American public so much when America lacked direction and vitality. The film also traces the steps Roosevelt took to create a larger federal bureaucracy than had ever existed. Henry Fonda narrates. (01:46)
2.035 Special Topics in Mathematics with Applications: Linear Algebra and the Calculus of Variations
This course forms an introduction to a selection of mathematical topics that are not covered in traditional mechanical engineering curricula, such as differential geometry, integral geometry, discrete computational geometry, graph theory, optimization techniques, calculus of variations and linear algebra. The topics covered in any particular year depend on the interest of the students and instructor. Emphasis is on basic ideas and on applications in mechanical engineering. This year, the subject
6.055J The Art of Approximation in Science and Engineering (MIT)
This course teaches simple reasoning techniques for complex phenomena: divide and conquer, dimensional analysis, extreme cases, continuity, scaling, successive approximation, balancing, cheap calculus, and symmetry. Applications are drawn from the physical and biological sciences, mathematics, and engineering. Examples include bird and machine flight, neuron biophysics, weather, prime numbers, and animal locomotion. Emphasis is on low-cost experiments to test ideas and on fostering curiosity abo
