Introduction to Mathematica

Introduction to Mathematica
Mathematica is a scientific software application that consists of a flexible high-level programming language with thousands of powerful built-in functions for symbolic, numeric, and graphical computation typical of physics and other quantitative fields. Undergraduates can use Mathematica for coursework, senior projects, and throughout their professional careers. In this course we will focus on the principles at the core of Mathematica and how these principles unify such a great range of computational capabilities. (PHYS 0109 and 0110; Recommended: MATH 0200 and a traditional “computer programming course” in high school or college)

Ancient Astronomy

Ancient Astronomy
In this course we will learn about astronomy through the lens of ancient civilizations. By studying the civilizations of the Babylonians, Mayans, and Greeks, we will learn how ancient astronomers determined the sizes of the Earth and Moon as well as distances to bodies in the solar system. We will employ hands-on, lab-like observations and minimum use of mathematics to learn how our ancestors understood our place in the cosmos.
