8.01 Physics I

Class Info

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 2017). It is instructed by D. Chakrabarty 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.

11.011 The Art and Science of Negotiation

Class Info

Introduction to negotiation theory and practice. Applications in government, business, and nonprofit settings are examined. Combines a "hands-on" personal skill-building orientation with a look at pertinent theory. Strategy, communications, ethics, and institutional influences are examined as they shape the ability of actors to analyze problems, negotiate agreements, and resolve disputes in social, organizational, and political circumstances characterized by interdependent interests.

This class has no prerequisites.

11.011 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by B. Verdini.

Lecture occurs 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 9-255.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This class counts as a HASS S.

You can find more information at the The Art and Science of Negotiation site or on the 11.011 Stellar site.
