An interactive course on electronics, starting at the absolute beginning.
This course is mostly intended for hobbyists who want to start building their own circuits, but the content will be useful to anyone who wants to learn more about how electronics work.
Students are not expected to have any prior knowledge of electricity or electronics.
This course covers a wide range of material science subjects. If followed chronologically, the student will first learn about every metallic element on the periodic table, including their properties and applications. The course goes on to examine other material science topics such as electron microscopy and even magnetism. A background including high school AP chemistry, first year collegiate chemistry, or a short background on atomic structure will be helpful.
Are you interested in making your own high quality beer at home? Are you a already an all-grain homebrewer? This course is designed for beginning and advanced homebrewers alike.
I have been homebrewing for years and have a degree in microbiology. I am also a real-life teacher (for now, actually looking to move into the pro-brewing industry).
This class will feature homebrewing demo videos, lectures/presentations about the science of brewing, and interviews and discussion with other brewers (home and pro) about various relevant topics.
This course will be covering topics typical of a college freshman general chemistry course.
All topics in the scope of general chemistry will be covered including basic chemical bonds and molecular structure, thermodynamics, equilibria, kinetics and everything in between (full list found in syllabus).
My teaching philosophy revolves around rigor and depth. I enjoy challenging my students to think. As a result, assuming you utilize all the material I provide, you will have a very intimate understanding of the course material by the conclusion of the course.
The purpose of this course is to introduce the theories and phenomena of nuclear science. The course will be structured so that enough depth of understanding is obtained to apply nuclear science to your eld of interest. The fundamental ideas that we will focus on are:
Phenomena of nuclear properties and structure
Kinetics and theory of radioactive decay
Theory of nuclear reactions
Interactions of radiation with matter (including biological systems)
Neutron physics is the study of the travel of neutrons through matter and the resulting reactions, most notably power generation via the fission of nuclei of heavy atoms, i.e. nuclear reactor cores.
