18.369 Mathematical Methods in Nanophotonics (MIT)
Find out what solid-state physics has brought to Electromagnetism in the last 20 years. This course surveys the physics and mathematics of nanophotonics—electromagnetic waves in media structured on the scale of the wavelength. Topics include computational methods combined with high-level algebraic techniques borrowed from solid-state quantum mechanics: linear algebra and eigensystems, group theory, Bloch's theorem and conservation laws, perturbation methods, and coupled-mode theories, to u
2.1.1 A day in my life
Ever wondered how a computer processes data into information? This unit will help you to understand the distinction between the two and examines how a computer-based society impacts on daily life. You will learn what computers can do with data to produce information and how computers can be used to work with data and search for it, control machines, and support commercial operations.
Of Mice and Children: Unraveling the Effects of a Technologized Infancy
Dimitri's passion is developing actionable strategies to optimize the cognitive, emotional, and social development of preschool children. The pursuit of that passion has taken him from the exam room, to the community and most recently to cages of newborn mice. Christakis' laboratory focuses on the effects of early environmental influences on child health and development. He speaks frequently to international audiences of pediatricians, parents, and educators about the impact of early learning

History of mathematics and X
The History of Mathematics and X "is an initiative that aims to offer mathematical histories for various topics, x. Each topic is covered in a talk at the University of Nottingham that is available to view online, in an article for iSquared Magazine and is accompanied by a companion podcast released by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications through the Travels in a Mathematical World podcast." Two topics are currently (May 2010) available - cryptography and gravity. These resources ha
12.400 The Solar System (MIT)
This is an introduction to the study of the solar system with emphasis on the latest spacecraft results. The subject covers basic principles rather than detailed mathematical and physical models. Topics include: an overview of the solar system, planetary orbits, rings, planetary formation, meteorites, asteroids, comets, planetary surfaces and cratering, planetary interiors, planetary atmospheres, and life in the solar system.

Three essays on bank efficiency
Since commercial banks play important roles in the financial markets, it is important to evaluate whether banks operate efficiently. Moreover, given increased competition from non-bank financial institutions, commercial banks should operate more efficiently than they did previously. Commercial banks might operate more efficiently if they have superior information. If this is true, bank size should not matter to the operation of the bank. Thus, as long as the bank has superior information, it wil
Private Equity in Emerging Markets Is Being Rebalanced
Part II of this Knowledge@Wharton podcast looks at the falling market share of PE for emerging markets, and the rising investments outside of the BRIC countries, and the increasing importance of operational improvement.
This video gives a brief description of a Stem-and-leaf plot, how to make them and use them to find the median and range.
Relative Frequency Histogram
In this video, an unfinished histogram is pictured. The instructor explains how to complete the histogram and does each step necessary to do so.
Drawing a Histogram
This lesson takes provided data about mass to create a histogram about the data. While the lesson relates to a previous experiment, it still provides good step by step instruction on how to draw a histogram. Graph paper will be needed to follow along and complete the lesson along with the instructor. It is hard at times to see what the instructor is writing because the writing is very small.
In this video (06:08), Mr. Khan explains how to visualize data using a histogram. Mr. Khan uses the computer software (with different colors) to illustrate his points. Sal Khan is the recipient of the 2009 Microsoft Tech Award in Education.
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
6.263J Data Communication Networks (MIT)
6.263J / 16.37J focuses on the fundamentals of data communication networks. One goal is to give some insight into the rationale of why networks are structured the way they are today and to understand the issues facing the designers of next-generation data networks. Much of the course focuses on network algorithms and their performance. Students are expected to have a strong mathematical background and an understanding of probability theory. Topics discussed include: layered network architecture,
MAS.450 Holographic Imaging (MIT)
MAS.450 is a laboratory course about holography and holographic imaging. This course teaches holography from a scientific and analytical point of view, moving from interference and diffraction to imaging of single points to the display of three-dimensional images. Using a "hands-on" approach, students explore the underlying physical phenomena that make holograms work, as well as designing laboratory setups to make their own images. The course also teaches mathematical techniques that allow the b
Earth's Changing Climate
Tropical glaciers are the world's thermometers; their melting is a signal that human activities are warming the planet. A California project tries to predict whether natural ecosystems will be able to absorb enough additional carbon dioxide from the atmosphere in the next 50 years to mitigate the full impact of human-induced greenhouse gas emissions.
How Music Works 2 - Rhythm - Part 1
Narrator is Howard Goodall. Rhythm is the maverick in the musical toolbox, even without melody, harmony, or bass line a rhythm can stand by itself. Rhythm is the part of music that interacts the most immediately and spontaneously with our body. What is it about rhythm that makes is so great? Rhythm can make us tap our feet, it can also be complex. The beat is the heart of rhythm. Video discusses the rhythm in classic music. Video a
Homeschooling Tips : How to Occupy Kids When You Are Teaching the Other Ones
Creating a school box that contains Lego blocks, crayons and coloring pages is a great way to keep a child occupied, while homeschooling other children. Linda Wooldridge has been homeschooling since 1998, and she has been on the PPEA board for three years as the orientation coordinator for Pinellas County. (01:31)
