What is a Montessori Education?
This is a very well done over view of what a Montessori Education is like. Goes over the kind of environment they are taught in and the curricular areas used. After watching this video you will know the basics of Montessori Education and have an understanding of the method and approach.
Introduction to Modern Physics
The course covers principles and concepts of Special and General Relativity; origins of Quantum Mechanics; quantum structure of atoms, molecules, solids; applications to lasers and microelectronics; nuclear and particle physics; and cosmology.
The Photoelectric Effect
See how light knocks electrons off a metal target, and recreate the experiment that spawned the field of quantum mechanics.
Quantum Wave Interference
When do photons, electrons, and atoms behave like particles and when do they behave like waves? Watch waves spread out and interfere as they pass through a double slit, then get detected on a screen as tiny dots. Use quantum detectors to explore how measurements change the waves and the patterns they ...
Quantum Bound States
Explore the properties of quantum "particles" bound in potential wells. See how the wave functions and probability densities that describe them evolve (or don't) over time. Teacher's guide available.
Watch quantum "particles" tunnel through barriers. Explore the properties of the wave functions that describe these particles.

Nanoelectronics and the Meaning of Resistance
The purpose of this series of lectures is to introduce the "bottom-up" approach to nanoelectronics using concrete examples. No prior knowledge of quantum mechanics or statistical mechanics is assumed; however, familiarity with matrix algebra will be helpful for some topics.
This is a quick two minute introduction to the conflict of theory of relativity and theory of quantum of mechanics. It is high level but shows some excellent graphics! Run time 02:00
What Every Dog Should Know About Quantum Physics
This is a teacher-created slideshow (33 slides) that is an overview of Quantum Physics.
Beyond the Mechanical Universe
Provocative questions begin the quest of Beyond The Mechanical Universe. This introductory preview enters the world of Electricity and Magnetism, goes on to 20th-century discoveries of Relativity and Quantum mechanics. The brilliant ideas of Faraday, Ampere, Maxwell, Einstein, Schrödinger, Heisenberg add to The Mechanical Universe of Newton.
22.02 Introduction to Applied Nuclear Physics (MIT)
This course concentrates on the basic concepts of nuclear physics with emphasis on nuclear structure and radiation interactions with matter. Included: elementary quantum theory; nuclear forces; shell structure of the nucleus; alpha, beta, and gamma radioactive decays; interactions of nuclear radiations (charged particles, gammas, and neutrons) with matter; nuclear reactions; and fission and fusion. The course is divided into three main sections: Quantum Mechanics Fundamentals Nuclear Structure
8.251 String Theory for Undergraduates (MIT)
This course introduces string theory to undergraduate and is based upon Prof. Zwiebach's textbook entitled A First Course in String Theory. Since string theory is quantum mechanics of a relativistic string, the foundations of the subject can be explained to students exposed to both special relativity and basic quantum mechanics. This course develops the aspects of string theory and makes it accessible to students familiar with basic electromagnetism and statistical mechanics.
18.735 Double Affine Hecke Algebras in Representation Theory, Combinatorics, Geometry, and Mathemati
Double affine Hecke algebras (DAHA), also called Cherednik algebras, and their representations appear in many contexts: integrable systems (Calogero-Moser and Ruijsenaars models), algebraic geometry (Hilbert schemes), orthogonal polynomials, Lie theory, quantum groups, etc. In this course we will review the basic theory of DAHA and their representations, emphasizing their connections with other subjects and open problems.
18.435J Quantum Computation (MIT)
This course provides an introduction to the theory and practice of quantum computation. Topics covered include: physics of information processing, quantum logic, quantum algorithms including Shor's factoring algorithm and Grover's search algorithm, quantum error correction, quantum communication, and cryptography.
8.511 Theory of Solids I (MIT)
This is the first term of a theoretical treatment of the physics of solids. Topics covered include crystal structure and band theory, density functional theory, a survey of properties of metals and semiconductors, quantum Hall effect, phonons, electron phonon interaction and superconductivity.
