This video includes an introduction to the concept of the vector, a brief review of vector properties, an exploration of vector properties using physical intuition based on displacements, and more.
This video describes many facets of light, introducing it as a context in which to discuss scientific modeling. Students are asked to explain various phenomena in terms of which model describe them most effectively.
Prof. Krystyn Van Vliet discusses the importance and utility of enzyme kinetics for drug development. Alongside the video, students derive a rate equation (the Michaelis-Menten equation) for a simple enzyme-substrate system.
This video examines Gauss' Law and area integrals in detail, focusing on extracting as many variables as possible from the integral through careful choice of a Gaussian surface.
This video describes the key elements of strategic communication. Students watch and evaluate three segments of an MIT student presentation that exemplifies these key elements.
A review of electric field and electric potential, focusing on their similarities and differences and the way they are most commonly represented.
This course covers the fundamental principles, practices and tools of Lean Six Sigma methods that underlay modern organizational productivity approaches applied in aerospace, automotive, health care, and other sectors.
This course covers theories about the form that settlements should take and attempts a distinction between descriptive and normative theory by examining examples of various theories of city form over time.
Data structures play a central role in modern computer science. You interact with data structures even more often than with algorithms (think Google, your mail server, and even your network routers).
The MIT Biology Department core courses cover the fundamental principles of biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology, and cell biology.
In this lecture, Prof. Winston introduces artificial intelligence and provides a brief history of the field. See more at Open Course
This lab session begins with a short lecture on video camera fundamentals and terminology. Instructor: Chris Boebel and Christine Walley
What is sound, and how are sounds made? What is an echo? Explore how the various echo chambers of MIT's campus can affect how sound travels and bounces back to you!
Joel Schneider explains partial derivatives.
This montage video provides a peek at several new MIT BLOSSOMS lessons that have been created recently, not only in the U.S. but also in Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon and Malaysia
Part 3 of a 4-video series on the basics of engineering and science. We'll show you the role that art plays in the engineering process, from brainstorming ideas to carrying out designs.
Part 2 of a 4-video series on the basics of engineering and science. In this video, learn about what's involved in the design process of engineering!
MIT researchers are finding ways to make it possible to sculpt items with distinctive signs of handicraft, while controlling the outcome so that the object doesn't stray too far from the desired form.
What exactly do engineering and science involve? Here's an introduction to the basic ideas of what engineers and scientists do - part 1 of a 4-video series.
