# 5.111 Principles of Chemical Science

Introduction to chemistry, with emphasis on basic principles of atomic and molecular electronic structure, thermodynamics, acid-base and redox equilibria, chemical kinetics, and catalysis. Introduction to the chemistry of biological, inorganic, and organic molecules.

This class has no prerequisites.

5.111 will be offered this semester (Spring 2018). It is instructed by M. Hong, K. Nelson, M. Bawendi and B. Pentelute.

Lecture occurs 12:00 PM to 13:00 PM on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in 32-123.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

You can find more information on MIT OpenCourseWare at the Principles of Chemical Science site or on the 5.111 Stellar site.

# 8.012 Physics I

Elementary mechanics, presented in greater depth than in 8.01. Newton's laws, concepts of momentum, energy, angular momentum, rigid body motion, and non-inertial systems. Uses elementary calculus freely; concurrent registration in a math subject more advanced than 18.01 is recommended. In addition to covering the theoretical subject matter, students complete a small experimental project of their own design. Freshmen admitted via AP or Math Diagnostic for Physics Placement results.

This class has no prerequisites.

8.012 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Fall semester, and will be instructed by M. Soljacic.

Lecture occurs 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 6-120.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

You can find more information on MIT OpenCourseWare at the Physics I: Classical Mechanics site or on the 8.012 Stellar 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 no prerequisites.

18.02 will be offered this semester (Spring 2018). It is instructed by J. Bush.

Lecture occurs 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 54-100.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

# 24.900 Introduction to Linguistics

Studies what is language and what does knowledge of a language consist of. It asks how do children learn languages and is language unique to humans; why are there many languages; how do languages change; is any language or dialect superior to another; and how are speech and writing related. Context for these and similar questions provided by basic examination of internal organization of sentences, words, and sound systems. Assumes no prior training in linguistics.

This class has no prerequisites.

24.900 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Fall semester, and will be instructed by A. Albright.

Lecture occurs 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 4-163.
