Science - Open Courseware (OCW)
interactive, research-based simulations of physical phenomena: ongoing effort to provide extensive suite of simulations to improve the way that physics, chemistry, biology, earth science and math are taught and learned
continuum methods, atomistic and molecular simulation (e.g. molecular dynamics) as well as quantum mechanics
introduces structure, composition, and physical processes governing the terrestrial planets, including their formation and basic orbital properties, plate tectonics, earthquakes, seismic waves, rheology, impact cratering, gravity and magnetic fields, heat flux, thermal structure, mantle convection, deep interiors, planetary magnetism, dynamics
major practical and conceptual issues in science journalism (how to find and research stories, exposing false claims, how to pitch to an editor, turning crisis reporting to advantage), topics that are relevant to beginners in journalism as well as more experienced reporters and editors in all regions of the world
inferential & causal view of scientific explanation, Van Fraassen's pragmatic view of explanation, Carnap vs. Popper, structure of scientific revolutions, paradigms & normal science, anomaly, crisis & non-cumulativity of paradigm shifts, incommensurability, hierarchical model of justification, theory of scientific justification, holist picture of scientific change, scientific realism vs. constructive empiricism, inference to best explanation, entity & convergent realism, measurement problem
explores two revolutions in perception of the universe, Galileo (realization that what we see in the heavens—the moon, the planets, the sun and stars—are physical objects), Einstein (space and time are not as straightforward as they first appear, but related to each other in a simple but unexpected way)
science and religion as historical phenomena that have evolved over time, Examines the earlier mind-set before 1700 when into science fitted elements that came eventually to be seen as magical, how Western cosmologies became "disenchanted", Magical tradition transformed into modern mysticisms, political implications, discussion concerning science in totalitarian settings as well as "big science" during Cold War
brings computational exploration to the widest possible audience, open-code resource that uses dynamic computation to illuminate concepts, free player runs all demos: Browse Latest, Random Selection, FAQs, Authoring area
