STS.009 Evolution and Society (MIT) STS.009 Evolution and Society (MIT)

Description

This course provides a broad conceptual and historical introduction to scientific theories of evolution and their place in the wider culture. It embraces historical, scientific and anthropological/cultural perspectives grounded in relevant developments in the biological sciences since 1800 that are largely responsible for the development of the modern theory of evolution by natural selection. Students read key texts, analyze key debates (e.g. Darwinian debates in the 19th century, and the creation controversies in the 20th century) and give class presentations.

An introduction to minerals and rocks under the microscope An introduction to minerals and rocks under the microscope

Description

In this free course, An introduction to minerals and rocks under the microscope, you will experience the study of minerals using a polarising microscope. While the study of minerals can involve electron or ion beam chemical analysis, the polarising microscope remains the prime tool for the study of rock thin sections and is the foundation of learning to recognise, characterise and identify rocks.

6.111 Introductory Digital Systems Laboratory (MIT) 6.111 Introductory Digital Systems Laboratory (MIT)

Description

6.111 is reputed to be one of the most demanding classes at MIT, exhausting many students' time and creativity. The course covers digital design topics such as digital logic, sequential building blocks, finite-state machines, FPGAs, timing and synchronization. The semester begins with lectures and problem sets, to introduce fundamental topics before students embark on lab assignments and ultimately, a digital design project. The students design and implement a final digital project of their choice, in areas such as games, music, digital filters, wireless communications, video, and graphics. The course relies on extensive use of Verilog® for describing and implementing digital logic designs on state-of-the-art FPGA. 6.111 is reputed to be one of the most demanding classes at MIT, exhausting many students' time and creativity.

DG3N34 Electronic Testing Skills

Description

This unit has been designed to allow you to gain knowledge of standard electronic test instruments and testing techniques. In addition, you will gain the opportunity to practice basic fault-finding techniques. These skills will be utilised in other parts of your course and are likely to prove especially useful in many forms of employment. The earlier part of this unit deals with the safe and efficient use of multimeters for the measurement of common electronic circuit parameters. It also covers the specifications and limitations of such instruments. Similar topics are covered for oscilloscopes, function generators and frequency meters. It is intended that you will be given many opportunities to use this equipment to carry out tests on types of common electronic circuits. Specialised equipm

6.091 Hands-On Introduction to Electrical Engineering Lab Skills (MIT)

Description

This course introduces students to both passive and active electronic components (op-amps, 555 timers, TTL digital circuits). Basic analog and digital circuits and theory of operation are covered. The labs allow the students to master the use of electronic instruments and construct and/or solder several circuits. The labs also reinforce the concepts discussed in class with a hands-on approach and allow the students to gain significant experience with electrical instruments such as function generators, digital multimeters, oscilloscopes, logic analyzers and power supplies. In the last lab, the students build an electronic circuit that they can keep. The course is geared to freshmen and others who want an introduction to electronics circuits. This course is offered during the Independent Ac

An introduction to minerals and rocks under the microscope

Description

In this free course you will experience the study of minerals using a polarising microscope. While the study of minerals can involve electron or ion beam chemical analysis the polarising microscope remains the prime tool for the study of rock thin sections and is the foundation of learning to recognise
