# 6.0001 Introduction to Computer Science Programming in Python

Introduction to computer science and programming for students with little or no programming experience. Students develop skills to program and use computational techniques to solve problems. Topics include the notion of computation, Python, simple algorithms and data structures, testing and debugging, and algorithmic complexity. Combination of 6.0001 and 6.0002 counts as REST subject. Final given in the seventh week of the term.

This class has no prerequisites.

6.0001 will be offered this semester (Spring 2018). It is instructed by J. V. Guttag.

Lecture occurs 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 26-100.

This class counts for a total of 6 credits.

# 7.012 Introductory Biology

Exploration into areas of current research in molecular and cell biology, immunology, neurobiology, human genetics, biochemistry, and evolution. Enrollment limited to seating capacity of classroom. Admittance may be controlled by lottery.

This class has no prerequisites.

7.012 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Fall semester, and will be instructed by R. Weinberg and E. Lander.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

# 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.

# 17.41 Introduction to International Relations

Provides an introduction to the causes of international conflict and cooperation. Topics include war initiation, crisis bargaining, international terrorism, nuclear strategy, interstate economic relations, economic growth, international law, human rights, and environmental politics.

This class has no prerequisites.

17.41 will be offered this semester (Spring 2018). It is instructed by J. Hayes.

Lecture occurs 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 32-144.

# 18.022 Calculus

Calculus of several variables. Topics as in 18.02 but with more focus on mathematical concepts. Vector algebra, dot product, matrices, determinant. Functions of several variables, continuity, differentiability, derivative. Parametrized curves, arc length, curvature, torsion. Vector fields, gradient, curl, divergence. Multiple integrals, change of variables, line integrals, surface integrals. Stokes' theorem in one, two, and three dimensions.

This class has no prerequisites.

18.022 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Fall semester, and will be instructed by P. Etingof.
