Prices Prices

Description

This free course, Prices, looks at a wide variety of ways of comparing prices and the construction of a price index. You will also look at the Retail Price Index (RPI) and the Consumer Price Index (CPI), indices used by the UK Government to calculate the percentage by which prices in general have risen over any given period. You will also look at the important statistical and mathematical ideas that contribute to the construction of a price index. First published on Mon, 25 Apr 2016 as Prices.

Maths for Science Maths for Science

Description

Observation, measurement and the recording of data are central activities in science. Speculation and the development of new theories are crucial as well, but ultimately the predictions resulting from those theories have to be tested against what actually happens and this can only be done by making further measurements. Whether measurements are made using simple instruments such as rulers and thermometers, or involve sophisticated devices such as electron microscopes or lasers, there are decisions to be made about how the results are to be represented, what courses of measurements will be used and the precision to which the measurements will be made. In this free course, Maths for Science, we will consider these points in turn. First published on Tue, 22 Mar 2016 as Maths for Science.

Exploring distance time graphs Exploring distance time graphs

Description

Graphs are a common way of presenting information. However, like any other type of representation, graphs rely on shared understandings of symbols and styles to convey meaning. Also, graphs are normally drawn specifically with the intention of presenting information in a particularly favourable or unfavourable light, to convince you of an argument or to influence your decisions. This free course, Exploring distance time graphs, will enable you to explain, construct, use and interpret distance-time graphs. First published on Tue, 29 Mar 2016 as Exploring distance time graphs.

Developing modelling skills Developing modelling skills

Description

This free course, Developing modelling skills, is the third in the series of five courses on mathematical modelling. It provides an overview of the processes involved in developing models, starting by explaining how to specify the purpose of the model. It then moves on to look at aspects involved in creating models, such as simplifying problems, choosing variables and parameters, formulating relationships and finding solutions. You will also look at interpreting results and evaluating models. This course assumes that you have previously studied the courses Modelling pollution in the Great Lakes and Analysing skid marks.

EC.050 Recreate Experiments from History: Inform the Future from the Past: Galileo (MIT) EC.050 Recreate Experiments from History: Inform the Future from the Past: Galileo (MIT)

Description

2010 marks the 400th anniversary of Galileo's astonishing sightings of features on the moon, stars, and moons around Jupiter that no one had seen before. Recreate these new ways of seeing and exploring from the materials and techniques Galileo had on hand, while you reflect on the times and works of Galileo. What was it like to improvise new ways of seeing and exploring from the materials and techniques on hand? What do we notice? What surprises us? How can we relate to past experience and ideas? What are we curious to research? How does our experimenting grow into our learning? Let your own curiosity drive your explorations. 2010 marks the 400th anniversary of Galileo's astonishing sightings of features on the moon, stars, and moons around Jupiter that no one had seen before.
