SP.401 Introduction to Women's and Gender Studies (MIT)
This course offers an introduction to Women's and Gender Studies, an interdisciplinary academic field that asks critical questions about the meaning of gender in society. The primary goal of this course is to familiarize students with key issues, questions and debates in Women's and Gender Studies scholarship, both historical and contemporary. Gender scholarship critically analyzes themes of gendered performance and power in a range of social spheres, such as law, culture, work, medicine and the

Two More Things to Worry About
In customary, loose-limbed form, Arnold Barnett reprises two of his favorite themes: improvements to the U.S. Electoral College, and aviation safety.
First up, Barnett’s suggested fix for national elections, which through the “fun-house mirror” of the Electoral College, permit winner-take-all results. His
Air Safety: Nothing But Blue Skies?
While Arnold Barnett acknowledges addressing the same questions around flying year after year (“Does he ever change his schtick?”), he advertises some new twists this time ‘round. Barnett remains remarkably consistent, though, in his quite sunny assessment of the current state of aviation safety -- even after a recent
Historia de la Psicología (2012)
La Historia de la psicología es una disciplina que pretende exponer el desarrollo de la Psicología como Ciencia, cuáles son sus conceptos fundamentales y los métodos y procedimientos empleados en la investigación psicológica a través de su constitución en el tiempo. La Historia se presenta como un saber con características propias, relacionado con otros saberes que le sirven de base y a quienes apoya. Asimismo da a conocer las teorías y autores más relevantes para la psicología. Con
Behavior-based Computational Design Methodologies: Integrative processes for force defined material
With the introduction of physics-based algorithms and modeling environments, design processes have been shifting from the representation of materiality to the simulation of approximate material descriptions. Such computational processes are based upon enacting physical and material behavior, such as gravity, drag, tension, bending, and inflation, within a generative modeling environment. What is often lacking from this strategy is an overall understanding of computational design; that informati

Architectural References to Virtual Environments Design
Based on a comparison between the perception of digital and real construction, the development of virtual systems and the review of additional sources, this paper states some differences between the design of virtual environments and architectural spaces. Virtual-reality technologies provide advanced capabilities to simulate real situations, and also to create digital worlds not referred to physical places, such as imaginary landscapes or environments devoted to electronic activities, like enter
17.874 Quantitative Research Methods: Multivariate (MIT)
This course is the second semester in the statistics sequence for political science and public policy offered in the Political Science Department at MIT. The intellectual thrust of the course is a presentation of statistical models for estimating causal effects of variables. The model of an effect is a conditional mean (though we might imagine other effect). The notion of causality is the effect of one variable on another holding all else constant.

Tides are the rise and fall of the ocean's surface. Learn more about ocean tides in this educational video from dizzo95. The video briefly explains the causes of the tides, types of tides, and how often a tide occurs. More videos about tides can be found under the category and subcategories of Astronomy/Solar System/Earth's Moon/ Moon and Earth's Tides. Run time 0:55.
CMS.608 Game Design (MIT)
This course provides practical instruction in the design and analysis of non-digital games. Students cover the texts, tools, references and historical context to analyze and compare game designs across a variety of genres, including sports, game shows, games of chance, card games, schoolyard games, board games, and role–playing games. In teams, students design, develop, and thoroughly test their original games to understand the interaction and evolution of game rules. Students taking the

21W.747-1 Rhetoric (MIT)
This course is an introduction to the history, the theory, the practice, and the implications (both social and ethical) of rhetoric, the art and craft of persuasion. This semester, many of your skills will be deepened by practice, including your analytical skills, your critical thinking skills, your persuasive writing skills, and your oral presentation skills. In this course you will act as both a rhetor (a person who uses rhetoric) and a rhetorician (one who studies the art of rhetoric).
