Maccabees, Part 6
This is an animated biography of the Macabees from the Discovery Channel Education series. This series is aimed at older elementary school children.
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.

11.362 Environmental Management Practicum: Brownfield Redevelopment (MIT)
Through site-specific client-based work, this course will allow students to materially contribute to redevelopment decision-making regarding a former inner-city industrial site. The course will focus on generating and analyzing pragmatic redevelopment scenarios given the issues of brownfields and environmental contamination, community preferences, regulatory constraints and economic realities.
The course is designed along two parallel and mutually reinforcing educational tracks: Field learning
Introduction to the use of the International Classification of Functioning (ICF) in clinical managem
One of the most difficult skills that a physiotherapy student has to learn is clinical reasoning
5.73 Introductory Quantum Mechanics I (MIT)
5.73 covers fundamental concepts of quantum mechanics: wave properties, uncertainty principles, Schrodinger equation, and operator and matrix methods. Basic applications of the following are discussed: one-dimensional potentials (harmonic oscillator), three-dimensional centrosymetric potentials (hydrogen atom), and angular momentum and spin. The course also examines approximation methods: WKB method, variational principle, and perturbation theory.

Department of Geological Sciences
San Diego State University
Advisor Dr. Gary Girty
Saprock is that part of the regolith in which more than 20% of the weatherable minerals are chemically or texturally altered. In the Peninsular Ranges of southern California, saprock is a ubiquitous feature of the land
3.052 Nanomechanics of Materials and Biomaterials (MIT)
This course focuses on the latest scientific developments and discoveries in the field of nanomechanics, the study of forces and motion on extremely tiny (10-9 m) areas of synthetic and biological materials and structures. At this level, mechanical properties are intimately related to chemistry, physics, and quantum mechanics. Most lectures will consist of a theoretical component that will then be compared to recent experimental data (case studies) in the literature. The course begins with a ser

Nanotechnology Part 3 - Atomic Cat
Part 3 of a series of short podcasts that explores one route toward the most exotic technology ever conceived: a quantum computer. In this episode we see how to make a real world version of Schrodinger's Cat.
11.233 Crafting Research Questions and Qualitative Methodology (MIT)
This course covers approaches to research and evaluation in the planning field, for those preparing to write 1st-year doctoral and other research papers. Topics include narrowing down research interests, using quantitative and qualitative techniques complementarily, and interviewing and other fieldwork challenges. The course uses a seminar-type format in which readings, class discussions, and assignments are built around (1) generic themes that run across the research interests and paper topics
