# 5.112 Principles of Chemical Science

Introduction to chemistry for students with an unusually strong background in chemistry. Knowledge of calculus equivalent to 18.01 is recommended. Emphasis on basic principles of atomic and molecular electronic structure, thermodynamics, acid-base and redox equilibria, chemical kinetics, and catalysis. Applications of basic principles to problems in metal coordination chemistry, organic chemistry, and biological chemistry.

This class has no prerequisites.

5.112 will be offered this semester (Fall 2019). It is instructed by S. Ceyer and M. Dinca.

Lecture occurs 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in 32-141.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

You can find more information on MIT OpenCourseWare at the Principles of Chemical Science site.

# 8.01 Physics I

Introduces classical mechanics. Space and time: straight-line kinematics; motion in a plane; forces and static equilibrium; particle dynamics, with force and conservation of momentum; relative inertial frames and non-inertial force; work, potential energy and conservation of energy; kinetic theory and the ideal gas; rigid bodies and rotational dynamics; vibrational motion; conservation of angular momentum; central force motions; fluid mechanics. Subject taught using the TEAL (Technology-Enabled Active Learning) format which features students working in groups of three, discussing concepts, solving problems, and doing table-top experiments with the aid of computer data acquisition and analysis.

This class has no prerequisites.

8.01 will be offered this semester (Fall 2019). It is instructed by J. Formaggio and P. Dourmashkin.

Lecture occurs 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 26-152.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

You can find more information on MIT OpenCourseWare at the Classical Mechanics site.

# 18.02 Calculus

Calculus of several variables. Vector algebra in 3-space, determinants, matrices. Vector-valued functions of one variable, space motion. Scalar functions of several variables: partial differentiation, gradient, optimization techniques. Double integrals and line integrals in the plane; exact differentials and conservative fields; Green's theorem and applications, triple integrals, line and surface integrals in space, Divergence theorem, Stokes' theorem; applications.

This class has 18.01 as a prerequisite.

18.02 will be offered this semester (Fall 2019). It is instructed by L. Guth.

Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 26-100.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

You can find more information on MIT OpenCourseWare at the Multivariable Calculus site or on the 18.02 Stellar site.

# 21H.226[J] Riots, Strikes, and Conspiracies in American History

Focuses on a series of short, complicated, traumatic events that shed light on American politics, culture, and society. Events studied may include the rendition of Anthony Burns in 1854, the most famous fugitive slave controversy in US history; the Homestead strike/lockout of 1892; the quiz show scandal of the 1950s; and the student uprisings at Columbia University in 1968. Emphasis on finding ways to make sense of these events and on using them to understand larger processes of change in American history.

This class has no prerequisites.

21H.226[J] will not be offered this semester. It will be instructed by R. M. Fogelson.

This class counts for a total of
12 credits.
This class counts as a **HASS H**.
This class counts as a **CI-H**.

In the Fall 2015 Subject Evaluations, 21H.226[J] was rated 5.9 out of 7.0. You can find more information at the Home - 21H.226: Riots, Strikes, and Conspiracies in American History - LibGuides at MIT Libraries site.
