OCWC Global 2011: MIT's Institutional Decision to do OpenCourseWare. Panel with Charles M. Vest, Lawrence S. Bacow, Robert A. Brown, Hal Abelson and Shigeru Miyagawa examining MIT's institutional decision to launch OpenCourseWare.

This video is a tutorial on how to assemble and use a spectrometer using a CD diffraction grating and cellphone camera. Sample spectra of a white LED and red laser are also shown. Instructor: Dr. Joseph Summers Resources associated with this lab are available in the Labs section.See more ...

Project Laboratory in Mathematics is a course designed to give students a sense of what it's like to do mathematical research.

Description: This lecture introduces the topics covered in the course and its motivation. Examples of applications are provided, along with types and charaterizations of geometric objects, foldability and design questions, and results. Select open problems are also ...

Description: In this lecture, the professor talked about the standard Big Bang, cosmic inflation, evidence for inflation, Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB), universe to multiverse, dark energy, etc. Instructor: Alan GuthLearn more: ...

Description: This lecture covers the topology and exact loop transmission of feedback compensation, simplification for the case of large minor-loop transmission magnitude, and a popular operational amplifier configuration that uses feedback compensation. Instructor: James K. Roberge

This lecture covers some history of digital communication, with a focus on Samuel Morse and Claude Shannon, measuring information and defining information, the significance of entropy on encodings, and Huffman's coding algorithm.

The Experimental Study Group (ESG) is a freshman learning community that promotes interactive education and curricular and pedagogical innovation at MIT.

In this session, we extend the solution of the motion of oscillators with one degree of freedom without damping to the case where damping can no longer be ignored.

This lecture discusses the theory of quantum mechanics (QM), modeling and simluation, why QM is useful, and how it grew out of classical physics, and concludes with some simple examples.

This video is a tutorial of how to prepare nickel-doped PDMS. A series of tests of the thermal, electrical, and magnetic properties of different concentrations of doping are shown.

Prof. Townsend introduces the course to the students, explains the syllabus, and covers the topics of finance, growth, and volatility.

The MIT Biology Department core courses cover the fundamental principles of biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology, and cell biology.

A review of electric field and electric potential, focusing on their similarities and differences and the way they are most commonly represented.

Effective field theory is a fundamental framework to describe physical systems with quantum field theory.In this lecture, the professor discussed EFT of Hydrogen, top-down and bottom-up, and renormalizable EFT. Instructor: Prof. Iain Stewart

Here we illustrate the dynamical principles that underlie the abyssal circulation of the ocean, driven by the sinking of dense fluid formed by surface cooling at polar latitudes.

The Coriolis force can be visualized by making use of the parabolic surface constructed in Lab IV. If a ball, initially at rest in the rotating frame, is given a push, it is deflected to the right.
