4.440 Basic Structural Theory (MIT)
This course introduces the static behavior of structures and strength of materials. Topics covered include: reactions, truss analysis, stability of structures, stress and strain at a point, shear and bending moment diagrams, stresses in beams, Mohr's Circle, column buckling, and deflection of beams. Laboratory sessions are included where students are asked to solve structural problems by building simple models and testing them.
Theory Building Activities: "Responsibility and Incident at Morales"
The "Incident at Morales" dramatizes a fictional industrial accident that occurred at a chemical plant in the village of Morales. Produced by the National Institute for Engineering Ethics with a […]

7th CSS: Understanding 'Best Practice' Heuristic: Implications for Active Travel
James Macmillen, University of Oxford, talks on 'Understanding 'Best Practice' Heuristic: Implications for Active Travel' as part of the 7th Cycling and Society Symposium at the Transport Studies Unit, University of Oxford in 2010.
How People Learn: Introduction to Learning Theory
A thirty minute video about several teachers and how they encourage learning in their classroom. A lot of talking and a few glimpses of the classroom. This is part of a series. The subject matter is mainly elementary and middle school level.
Quantum Field Theory
The first free comprehensive textbook on quantum (and classical) field theory. The approach is pragmatic, rather than traditional or artistic: It includes practical techniques, such as the 1/N expansion (color ordering) and spacecone (spinor helicity), and diverse topics, such as supersymmetry and general relativity, as well as introductions to supergravity and strings. The PDF version can be more convenient than paper books, with Web links and a clickable outline (contents) window.
Public Health Practice 101
A series of presentations developed to introduce health department employees to the basic terms and concepts that they are likely to encounter in the field.
Science Writing: Practice Makes It (Almost) Perfect
http://www.tamu.edu Dr. Ginger Carney shares tips on writing science papers and grant proposals and the importance of revising and editing.
4.661 Theory and Method in the Study of Architecture and Art (MIT)
This seminar is open to graduate students, and is intended to offer a synoptic view of selected methodologies and thinkers in art history (with some implications for architecture). It is a writing-intensive class based on the premise that writing and editing are forms of critical thinking. The syllabus outlines the structure of the course and the readings and assignments for each week. The discipline of art history periodically surges into "crisis." The demise of formalism as a guiding tenet, or
6.632 Electromagnetic Wave Theory (MIT)
6.632 is a graduate subject on electromagnetic wave theory, emphasizing mathematical approaches, problem solving, and physical interpretation. Topics covered include: waves in media, equivalence principle, duality and complementarity, Huygens' principle, Fresnel and Fraunhofer diffraction, dyadic Green's functions, Lorentz transformation, and Maxwell-Minkowski theory. Examples deal with limiting cases of Maxwell's theory and diffraction and scattering of electromagnetic waves.
14.453 Macroeconomic Theory III (MIT)
This course covers issues in the theory of consumption, investment and asset prices. We lay out the basic models first, and then examine the empirical facts that motivate extensions to these models.
6.977 Semiconductor Optoelectronics: Theory and Design (MIT)
6.977 focuses on the physics of the interaction of photons with semiconductor materials. The band theory of solids is used to calculate the absorption and gain of semiconductor media. The rate equation formalism is used to develop the concepts of laser threshold, population inversion and modulation response. Matrix methods and coupled mode theory are applied to resonator structures such as distributed feedback lasers, tunable lasers and microring devices. The course is also intended to introduce
14.06 Intermediate Macroeconomic Theory (MIT)
This course is a survey of modern macroeconomics at a fairly advanced level. Topics include neoclassical and new& growth theory, consumption and saving behavior, investment, and unemployment. It also includes use of the dynamic programming techniques. Assignments include problem sets and written discussions of macroeconomic events. This course is recommended for students planning to apply to graduate school in economics.
14.122 Microeconomic Theory II (MIT)
This course offers an introduction to noncooperative game theory. The course is intended both for graduate students who wish to develop a solid background in game theory in order to pursue research in the applied fields of economics and related disciplines, and for students wishing to specialize in economic theory. While the course is designed for graduate students in economics, it is open to all students who have taken and passed 14.121.
21A.110 Anthropological Theory (MIT)
This course introduces students to some of the major social theories and debates that inspire and inform anthropological analysis. Over the course of the semester, we will investigate a range of theoretical propositions concerning such topics as agency, structure, subjectivity, history, social change, power, culture, and the politics of representation. Ultimately, all theories can be read as statements about human beings and the worlds they create and inhabit. We will approach each theoretical p
9.520 Statistical Learning Theory and Applications (MIT)
Focuses on the problem of supervised learning from the perspective of modern statistical learning theory starting with the theory of multivariate function approximation from sparse data. Develops basic tools such as Regularization including Support Vector Machines for regression and classification. Derives generalization bounds using both stability and VC theory. Discusses topics such as boosting and feature selection. Examines applications in several areas: computer vision, computer graphics, t
