About the course
This course is not meant to be sequential or to have a strict derivation of formulas. This course will consist of a description of different physical entities that can be explained using the hands, in a dance or by drawing on a blackboard. Sometimes, when following rigorous presentation of a difficult mathematical subject, one might lose sight of the end goal of studying it. In the scope of our course, the author will speak his heart and soul out about the subjects that he deems the most interesting and illustrative.
Structure of the course
1. Mechanics (dynamics) (7 lectures).
2. Mechanics (sound, oscillations).
3. Gas dynamics. Some issues related to molecular physics.
6. Basic quantum mechanics.
Purpose of the course
This course is not meant to be sequential or to have a strict derivation of formulas. Instead, it offers the possibility to easily and illustratively study different physical entities.
Middle and high school students, their parents, and science faculty students.
