The impact of economic forces in our lives is sizable and pervasive. For this reason, it is impossible to understand the social and economic forces shaping our lives without a good understanding of basic economic principles. This course provides a quantitative and model-based introduction to such principles, and teaches how to apply them to make sense of a wide range of real world problems. Examples of applications include predicting the impact of technological changes in market prices, calculating the optimal gasoline tax, and measuring the value of new products.

Einstein's Relativity and the Quantum Revolution: Modern Physics for Non-Scientists, 2nd Edition (AudioBook)


(24 lectures, 30 minutes/lecture)


Taught by Richard Wolfson
Middlebury College
Ph.D., Dartmouth College


"It doesn't take an Einstein to understand modern physics," says Professor Richard Wolfson at the outset of this course on what may well be the most important subject in the universe.

Relativity and quantum physics touch the very basis of physical reality, altering our common-sense notions of space and time, cause and effect. Both have reputations for being bewilderingly complex. But the basic ideas behind relativity and quantum physics are, in fact, simple and comprehensible by anyone. As Professor Wolfson points out, the essence of relativity is summed up in a single, concise sentence: the laws of physics are the same for all observers in uniform motion.

Turn on the light on science: A research-based guide to break down popular stereotypes about science and scientists

Turn on the light on science: A research-based guide to break down popular stereotypes about science and scientists by Antonio Tintori

Scientists deserve public recognition. The ways that they are depicted, however, are severely limited in physical and personal traits, helping to establish and enhance stereotypes under the general title of ‘scientist’. These stereotypes range from the arrogant researcher who wants to rule the world, to the lab coat wearing ‘nerdy’ genius, but all generally fall to an extreme view of an existing perception of what a scientist should look and be like.
